>> Interesting to think that ancient data storage methods such as chiseling into rock are more reliable than our modern technology.

In Chinese, that's best. While we can barely read the US Constitution today, I've come across 5000 year old Chinese text in museums that includes a startling number of characters that are as easily readable as they would be in a current newspaper. Or would be if I could read Chinese. But the same characters are used in Japanese, and have pretty much the same meanings, so there you are.

Get a chisel, learn Chinese.
