Moon Calendar Widget 1.0.0

The Lowdown:

Ok this is just for those of you out there who like to know the moons phases to keep up with oh say the monthly sacrifice. One problem I found though was that you need to brush up on your French not a big problem here in Canada since it is our official second language and you get used to see French on everything. But although it did have a choice for English it would not change to it. Supposedly you can use it to improve your garden also.

Auto Post to Google+ 0.1.1

The Lowdown:

Just when I had accepted that you could not auto post to Google Plus someone found a way around it.. Now of course this may not last but it might work for a while. It is a bit convoluted to get setup but may be worth it to be able to auto post to google plus. I have not yet had time to add to my site but will be adding this week.. Give it a check out and based on what I see I rate this:

WordPress Login Delay 1.0

The Lowdown:

Ok more security and this is a new twist I see. The plugin is simple enough you install turn it on and it will help with your security. It simply add more time 1 second for every attempt on a web site to login. To a bot hammering a site this can significantly add up to a lot of time. According to author it should not interfere with any other plugin for security and does not seem to have any impact on my site.
