A mirror is a web site which hosts a program as well as other things. Like the name suggests, it is a exact replica of the SS server programs. Just choose the one closest to you. The download will then start.
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

I'd just go for easynews, a tad faster download isn't going to make much of a difference when it's a one-time event. ;)
