One thing that I often disagree about with extension developers is their naming of Joomla extensions.

When marketing an extension, irrespective of it being free or commercial, the challenge is to clearly identify the product as being for joomla.

Many developers believe that to achieve this they need to name their product in the form "Joomla Newsletter". To me this is wrong and potentially confusing, as to the inexperienced user they may believe that this is a product made by the Joomla project when it isn't.

As you will have gathered by my blog posts I take the security of my joomla sites very seriously it even prompted another blogger "realise I needed to get smarter about passwords".

Even if you follow all the advice in those posts and the excellent advice in the Joomla Administrators Security Checklist you can never be too careful.

So it is no surprise that when a new security extension popped up in JED it picqued my interest.

It seams that no Joomla related blog is complete without an obligatory comparison between Joomla and Drupal.

As I've never used Drupal, and have no intention of learning it, I'm not really in a position to do a comparison.

And even if I did I am sure it would be unfairly biased as my years of experience with Joomla is bound to influence my conclusions and decisions.
