Designing a website is tedious, and there’s nothing more frustrating than finally finishing up and then noticing something out of place. The WordPress smiley is just that sort of thing – a teeny, tiny smiley face that came out of nowhere and is now taunting you. Here it is, the fiend (I included other elements of my website and desktop in this screenshot to help show the scale of the smiley face): That smiley is so small that I didn’t see it even when I purposely went to look for it.

I’m usually right, too – at least once a week I uncover a little bit of gold among the rubble.
