I've gotten some questions about legality.

All content (including code, music, pictures, etc.) on this website, except where otherwise mentioned, is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License (also at bottom of page). Similar FOSS licenses are also acceptable (e.g. zlib). Please do not use a GPL version, as these licenses restrict usage.

In short, you can freely download, repost, link to, embed, mirror, etc.—even for commercial purposes. The CC BY-SA 3.0 is an attribution license, but really that's just a request from me. All I really ask is that you don't blatantly lie and call something I made as yours. Note that attribution helps those who use your work respect that.

Overall, please just use common sense. My standard here is "niceness". If it seems not very nice, don't do it or ask.

Especially for code, standard disclaimers apply in the broadest possible sense (e.g. see zlib's disclaimer: "This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied warranty. In no event will the authors be held liable for any damages arising from the use of this software."). My code, particularly in supported projects, is reasonably robust, and when it comes to system-affecting source (e.g. file IO) I am especially cautious. However, no one is a perfect programmer and mistakes do happen. If you exist in this century you should already be aware of this. Consequently, time travelers, people-with-no-common-sense, or those afflicted by narrow-mind-disorders are expected to refrain from using computers or the programs written for them. Read the source if you're nervous.
