Cron and File Extensions

I created a script using TAR to backup my data on Ubuntu.
The script was putted to /etc/cron.daily but I didn't run!
After some investigations I found out that in /etc/cron.*/ directories no file extension or dots in the file name are allowed.

So be careful how you name your scripts that should run with cron.
