Can I snatch up an expiring domain at GoDaddy without losing my soul?

There is a domain that would be nice to have, but it has been registered for a very long time. I just recently decided to check on it, and it seems to be expiring. The site now shows a GoDaddy landing page that says it expired around a month ago. So, would it be advantageous to use their auction site, since they seem to currently have some control over the domain? [more inside]

Is there something like "whois" for Google App Engine apps?

I might put something up on Google App Engine. I sometimes like to try to be private online, to the extent that I'd be concerned about whether my home address was available via a "whois" lookup on a website I control. If I put some software online via Google App Engine and allow public use of it, will ordinary people be able to find out who is behind it (that being me)? Will moderately skilled amateur hackers be able to? Presumably law enforcement officials could find out, but that does not concern me. [more inside]

Alternatives to GoDaddy

I have a website that is hosted by DreamHost but the domain registration is at GoDaddy. I want to transfer the registration somewhere else because of GoDaddy's politics. One thing I'm looking for is private registration so that my info is not available to spammers on Whois -- GoDaddy and a few other companies do that. Anyone have any suggestions for good registration companies? Namecheap? 1&1? RegisterFly? Thanks.

Can I sell my company's unused domain name for personal profit?

My company has been offered a large sum of money for a domain name we own (but don't use). As the sole contact listed in the WHOIS, the offer was sent directly to my email address, so I'm the only person here who is aware of this offer. My company is notoriously unscrupulous, so I have no ethical hangups about just taking the money for myself. But, naturally, I don't want to break the law. Are you aware of any loopholes that might work to my advantage?

Help me identify all registered domain names containing the string fortruth.

Is there a way to get a plain text file with all currently registered domain names? Also, is there a way to use whois (from the command line or via a web site) to do partial searches (e.g. whois meta*.com) for large searches (whois seems to cut off after 20 search results)? (domainsurfer.com can do this but their db hasn't been updated for 2 years) [more inside]
