THE AO2 RITE OF PASSAGE
For epochs, the secrets of how to correctly compile AO2 was buried in the mind of its creator. After over 12 painstaking hours experimenting, compiling, and pacing around my room aimlessly, I succeeded the rite of passage, and I, too, gained the power to compile AO2 into a single executable of less than 10 MB in size.
I shared this power with great care. But as my involvement in AO2 dwindles and the community yearns for their own clients and their own features, and I look through ZIP files in disgust as dozens of DLLs are strewn all over, I have decided to divulge the secrets of how to compile AO2 statically.
With this powerful guide, you can complete the AO2 rite of passage in three hours or less.
