tinyapps.org cataloged tiny, well-made software for ages. At present, it serves mainly as an occasional tech blog.
As defined by this website, a tiny app (application) is software weighing 1.44MB or less. This ranges from the miniscule Tiny IDEA (a mere 448 bytes), to the awe-inspiring QNX demo disk (which pretty much fills a floppy).
Several well-intentioned but hopelessly flawed antivirus services were reporting this site as dangerous after their automated scans flagged legitimate sysadmin tools like Atomic Web Server and X-Pass. Encrypting the archives (hopefully) avoids this problem. Formerly, the entire downloads directory was protected via basic access authorization, but a compelling argument was made to protect the files instead.
Downloads are now hosted by Neocities. Files can be checked against their SHA-256 hashes found on the locally-hosted downloads index page thusly:

That function is now served through the blog, which is also available via RSS or Twitter.
RSS allows you to subscribe to the blog using a feed reader like Miniflux or Firefox (via Live Bookmarks). More information on Real Simple Syndication can be found here or in this short video.

Yes. You are 100% responsible for your own actions. Using this site, visiting a link, downloading a program, in short, living, is done entirely at your own risk (and joy).
No. (Well, with the exception of the "Recent Updates" question - that one used to get asked a fair bit.)
