No it's not pi.

third hint (which I assumed was obvious from my first hint):
error was 99% of the way there, but may not have used the right method to test his hypothesis

GreenSky, I think you think it is the most beautiful data ever created because beauty is in the eye/ear of the beholder.

Proofs>

Although beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, the feeling of being beautiful exists solely in the mind of the beheld.
Martha Beck

Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart

and the coup de tate

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
 ~Plato ~

So that is why I think you think it is the most beautiful.

PS. Want us to solve the puzzle, that obviously will take time and effort. How much BTC are you offering?  I am a capitalist.  Grin

Dunno. I tried a couple of trackers and all I got was silence. Are you sure that file is right? Or maybe it's intended to be silence?
