So how many appliances can I plug in there before starting an electrical fire?

I have a two-plug outlet with a three-plug adapter, meaning that I have four things plugged into the outlet. Am I going to set my sublet apartment on fire? Or rather, how can I keep from doing so?

The items are:
1. A 60 watt lamp
2. A Seagate external hard drive
3. An Apple Airport Extreme wireless router
4. An AT&T U-Verse modem/wireless router
The apartment has likely seen no maintenance in fifteen years (rent control), so maybe the wiring is old too.
Is this setup cause for concern at all? I know nothing about electricity.
