We are probably be talking about different things.

I am talking about my Quarters game I wrote several years ago -- you
can play it here:

You see, in December 1999, I wrote a Macintosh freeware application
that did the same thing as shown above. I placed a link on my
web-site to download the application, namely:

I then contacted several shareware sites online and gave them the
link for them to use/advertise.

In February of 2000, Mac World ran an article and mentioned my
Quarters game. Several other magazines followed with similar
articles. As a result, my site experienced thousands of downloads and
many of the shareware sites I shared my link with reported similar
