Ficwad NOT closing
The whois entry for ficwad.com was updated earlier today - the domain is now active for a further 5 years, and it stands to reason the site is going nowhere.
bmn I should qualify - this isn't set in stone just yet. Some hosts are known to register domains for long periods to discourage clients from leaving. I don't know if Dreamhost is one of those hosts, but if so this could be an example of it.

bmn Wait what the hell... I must've been high or something when I wrote that.

I used the Linux whois tool, to answer the question, it has two sets of records, one the ICANN record (which says the site has an owner) and the other the registrar's record (which says who the owner is, and which you posted above). For some reason I saw 5/Mar/2010 in the ICANN record and thought that date was another 5 years away...

So, yeah, this whole topic is a mistake, and it's now even more likely that the site's going to disappear in a matter of days - possibly even today - seeing as the expiry date is today.
