I just fucking love it when OS updates decide to unlink all my files from a directory, and then relink them in lost+found, and then do marvelous things like
$  find . -name \*3\* -print | xargs -n 500 file | grep 34111
./#34111: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.00, aspect ratio, "LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01", 150 x 150
$ find . -name \*3\* -print | xargs -n 350 file | grep 34111
./#34111: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.02, resolution (DPI), 72 x 72
$ find . -name \*3\* -print | xargs -n 400 file | grep 34111
./#34111: JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.01, aspect ratio, 0 x 0
