Last entry in the Wiki by the "administrator" is (I think) in April of

I did some investigation. WHOIS on the domain (boring stuff SNIPPED):

That's an almost two-year old registration, and I am betting it was when
he was in college (address two blocks from UC-Berkeley), and he has
moved on (see below).

He has his own domain here:

Mike Sugarbaker
3402 SE Main St #2
Portland, OR 97214 (He moved)

His last update to another web site is yesterday (4/16/2007):

SO he's alive... but apparently no longer paying much attention to
Icehousegames.org. I recommend that we take up a collection to buy him
out of the domain name, then hand it over to the Looneys to "own" while
we continue to manage it (as a wiki). Err... well, FIRST, try to get him
to donate it, THEN get him to ask a price, and THEN see if we can scrape
it up. From my investigation of Domain Direct, they were ripping him WAY
off, on the monthly hosting (almost double the price of GoDaddy, for
less than a tenth the storage and bandwidth). SO he might have a fairly
high price:
$80 * 2 years OR (woah!) $150 * 2 years--I just noticed that he'd have
to go up to that price, to have the cgi-bin support to run a wiki on
it. YIKES! I'm surprised he's still paying that kind of rate and not
involved on the wiki....

OK, that's the skinny that I could find out in about fifteen minutes of
surfing. While I could go ahead and e-mail him, if any of you know him
and have some pull (*cough* Andy? *cough*), you'd be better suited than
me coming out of the blue.
