Nah, don't hexdump.. Use something a little more efficient, maybe
But that raises an interesting question (to me, at least): What would
be the mean error rate (and what sort of error correction measures might
need to be employed) for "saving" by printing to paper (in some
binary-encoding format such as the aforementioned base-64), and
"loading" via scanning + OCR?
Ah well, back to work.

hexdump it to a printer? Type it back in if you really need it.
