EDIT: uh, I'm totally wrong. "darwinia.com" is a bookstor... nope, a squatter, so I guess Mas Tnega's got the full list. Google is my driver. I rarely type in urls anymore. Someday soon I won't even be able to operate a calculator.
...and darwinia.com clearly shows a creation date of 1998, so 21-Jun-2007 isn't just the latest renewal date. It still may be just a preventative measure. Now that IV and DEFCON have become bigger fish, they may be securing domains in anticipation of the next release. Or they could be planning to use darwinia.net as a game server url and maybe ambroisia is being contracted to administer or write some of the server-side code?
Dunno. But I remember Chris was pretty emphatic that they wanted to break from the Darwinia name. So unless they've given up on finding a new name, I find it hard to believe. And how could they possibly fail? I mean, they call their workplace The Flying Hamster! They still got some creativity in 'em.
