I can get it in 8. It's annoying because two of the pages are just those category pages which contain only links to more specific pages. If they really cared about me, they'd make it so those pages contained the information.

Heh, I posted that without even bothering to see if it could be done, and was like "eh, it's probably impossible", and it turns out to be pretty easily done. Um, if it were possible for me to give you bonus points, I would?
