I like register.com <http://www.register.com>, because it tries to 
sell you these dumb but fun-to-see e-bullshit permutations of 
whatever you just checked. I wrote about it... where... lemme see... 
here::: <http://doc.weblogs.com/2000/06/01>. Scroll down to the 
"Knowledge In, Fun Out" subhead.

Just havin' fun.

My cheapest and therefore best registration experience was with a 
service Tucows had where they charged me $10. I think this is now 
DomainDirect.com, which is not so cheap.
