Hello! I'm unsure if this is still a good way to reach you, but if it is I have some questions I'd like to ask. Well, just one, really. Since I don't have any notable experience with computer science, I'm not sure how to go about compiling the project - and none of the advice I've been able to find is... beginner friendly. If you could give me a quick and easy guide to compiling this thing, your assistance would be much appreciated.

(I also wouldn't mind, like, an installer, or a precompiled version? But I recognize that the former would probably be a pain to make, and... all right, I'm not sure why the latter wouldn't work but I'm sure you have a reason.)

Anyways, the point is that anything you could do to make this the slightest bit easier to set up would be a great help. Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings.

Hello, it seems that "Theme from alaplantine" and "12% of 360kb" link to the same file

Thanks Anon, I fixed the download to 12% of 360kb!

Feel free to follow me on Strava if you find it interesting (but you'll see a lot of me running my regular routes and treadmills and things!):

I fixed the soundtrack; thanks for the bug report! It was missing the Training Montage due to a typo, urgh!

Axel: I'm happy to hear this! :)

I started running because of pactom back in 2020 when I was 30 years old. It turns out not running for 30 years and then suddenly running a lot was a really bad idea - but thankfully my knees healed after a month of inactivity, and I'm now running 2/3 times a week at a healthy pace :)

Upvote the strava question.

Thanks Andy! The spam has really been escalating recently so now you need a secret code for old posts (:
Glad you enjoyed the video etc.!

Thank you for the video. My favorite part is how you show the holes in the sole of your shoes near the beginning, then ask how the glass shard got through the soles.

I'd still like to see your achievement unlocked badge though.

I discovered you, your blog, and your projects via the HN link to your Pac Tom Pittsburgh running project yesterday.

Jammed on the music, videos, and your blog archives. Wonderful stuff!

I then bragged to the family about your Douglas Adams handwriting font, and how someone else had a running project (Mine is the total mileage circumferences from each of our solar system's 'runnable' objects! ((That's after running the Mordor There and Back Again.)))

Thought to send a note congratulating you and found this hilarious recent spam wall of comments, which made me laugh and laugh. Good job sir!
(Helped ease the befuddlement from the Penguins vs. Red Wings game from here in the ATX.)

At the risk of detracting from a potential impromptu attic insulation symposium I wanted to mention that today marked the second time I have used one of your joyfully eclectic typefaces for a project.
I wanted to thank you for the typefaces, and their general GNUness, as well as the inspiration to jump off intellectual cliffs that you have provided on several occasions.

I want to hear about attic insulation in more details!

Ceri: That's awesome, congrats! I remember you telling me that you were working on it long ago :) Level II does have a lot to offer, for what it's worth...

jonas: Agreed but I am withholding the achievement until I post the video!

Update the Pac Tom website with an Achivement unlocked box, you deserve it.
