So, first I decide to just bring them over to x86, I know UFS will be a problem with the endianness, but I can just get a good poke at the data, make sure it is even there. Get the disks attach, geli attach... accepts the passwords, but the stripe doesn't show up?!
This old copy was on USB external disks, striped (2 of them) geli encrypted and written to on SPARC64/FreeBSD.. I think now you know the trajectory of the story (Maybe I should have opened with that)
The beginning: Recently I have gotten back to some old projects, and I started to re-hydrate some OLD data files. One of these was curiously corrupt. After tracking down how (looks like it got truncated in one of the copies), I remember I still had a SUPER old copy on a backup from WAY back when (think 10 + years)
Ok. So I guess i need to explain it. The car’s license plate begins ARJ. Which is a compression standard. Get it? Compact Car 🤣. Thank you

#TIL The #Brainfuck programming language has a dialect called "I use Arch, btw". In this dialect, the original symbols are replaced with "I", "use", "arch", "linux", "btw", "by", "the", "way". #Arch #ArchLinux
This is a "Hello World!" example:
