It links to THIS PAGE, which has BZFlag at #9

Woot. Just thought I'd say that.

Note, BZFlag has been on Digg before as its own story, but I figured this is almost as good :--)

There's also a live.linuX-gamers.net Live DVD that contains nVidia and ATI drivers, as well as a copy of BZFlag. (among other games)

Believe it or not, people won't notice that at first.
I got to that page, saw BZ at #9, scrolled down. I knew Wolf:ET had to be there somewhere and I was absolutely horrified to see it at #99. I even complained on IRC. So then I think "Wow, 98 free games better than ET, I guess I'll try the top 10 out...!" and start downloading games from the top 10 only.

So, uh, yeah, until Winny saw my remark on IRC and pointed it out, I was none-the-wiser to the alphabetical sorting... Blonde moment.

If nobody would have mentioned it I actually might not have noticed. :) But it's really cool we're near the top of the page, where everybody can see our game first. :) Cheers!

I do believe that he is referring to the alphabetical listing, sticking the AAA in front of BZFlag to have the game appear on that list first, instead of ninth.
