[PLUG] Domain registrar thoughts and Mediawiki

Last time this was asked was 2005 
and 2001 before then, so I think it's about time.  I want to register a 
few domain names.  I've been using and am 
happy, but they are $25 for 2 years.  That'll add up for the 3-5 names I 
want now.

I am (of course) aware of, and that was the recommendation 
x3 in 2005, but they bug me, partly because I find their site really 
noisy (though dotearth may be even worse).  They *are* a cheaper, 
especially if I want to go for a 1 year for $9.99.  Any recommendations, 
or should I just Get Over It and use GoDaddy?

I'm a bit wary of checking the names, given the recent domain name 
tasting/front-running issues 

Finally, the new site will run Mediawiki, any experts out there for when 
I have questions?  Any good resources?  The so-called docs on the site and scattered and incoherent, to me at least.

Microsoft has single-handedly nullified Moore's Law.
Innate design flaws of Windows make a personal firewall, anti-virus
and anti-malware software mandatory. The resulting software arms race
has effectively flattened Moore's Law on hardware running Windows.
