- The tour starts in the top left corner.
- The tour consists of moves that are up, down, left, or right one square.
- The tour visits each square exactly once.
- The tour ends in the bottom left corner.

The diagram shows one tour over a 4 × 10 board:

T(10) is 2329. What is T(10^{12}) modulo 10^{8}?
