Pet peeve of the day

Oh, there are a lot of things wrong with the world, I am quite sure, but lately, when I was building a website that had to use a lot of sponsors logos, I ran into a problem that make me both want to laugh and cry at the same time. Often, when I downloaded a logo from a website it was just named "logo.eps" or logo_large.gif or something like that.

Just as you wouldn’t name your resume "resume" when you are sending it out, so to should you not label your logo "logo" when creating it, not matter how much you would think that it would never leave your company and it would make perfect sense.

Sometimes I would remember to rename the logo before it joined the mob, other times, I would forget, and then have to open the logo before I found out what it contained.
