Mixwit is Dead (Revived)

Mixwit is Dead, (revived) is a site that resurects your old Mixwit tapes.

If you remember the previously featured Mixwit, it was a site where users were able able to upload songs onto a flash page, and share said songs (streaming) with friends. Needless to say, that got shut down real quick.

But today, an email came to former owners, stating the following:
"Hello (former) Mixwit user,

We saved your mixtapes =)

Mixwit is dead, but the spirit of mixtapes lives on through the
open source community. Over the past month we've completed - a new open-source mixtape project based on
our former Mixwit mixtape.

As part of this project, we have published each Mixwit
user's data on a temporary site. This site will be available
through April 2009, after which it will cease to exist.

You'll find all of your mixtapes and favorites here:

Inside the .zip file are "ready-to-play" folders containing
all of the files you need to play your mixes. Simply add
one or more of these folders to your blog or website and
point to the index.html file.

For more information on how to create or edit your new mixtape,
please refer to _instructions.html in your mixtape folder
or visit : the open-source Flash mixtape player : temporary host for Mixwit users' data

Questions or issues? @reply us on twitter (@mixwit)

Thanks again for all of your support. We'll be back in a
couple of weeks with more info on our new project:

Take care,

Radley & Mike"

How about that?

Oh, and P.S. I'm still not sure what the commenter's puzzle answer was (on the original TOTI write up of Mixwit). Any guesses?
