Limit Login Attempts in WordPress with a Must-Use Plugin

As a WordPress developer, I quite frequently deal with clients who have had their WordPress installations hacked. The number one cause that I have seen from these hacks are short/insecure passwords.

There is no Biblical Defense for Paid Pastors/Elders

How to Block FeedBurner from Burning your Feed (in WordPress)

I have had an interesting problem for the past year, basically ever since I created a blog for my wife. For some really weird reason, any Google property (like Google Reader) would inject my feed from FeedBurner into her feed… even though she is not even using FeedBurner.
