I think the hint was totally fine. Sure it threw a lot of us off a bit, but I think it was pretty clear that it was definitely not from 2000. It may have taken a bit of MJM knowledge to decipher it, but based on the megaphone sound that @Choda was pretty sure about, there's plenty of reason to think we could have figured it out even without the hint.Yeah, @Choda was getting very close with his spot-on analysis of the delay looping and megaphone. Regarding the hint, I do acknowledge its trickiness, but you guys have proven that even the most subtle of hints can lead you to victory.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
