Looking for a new domain registrar. Suggestions?

I’m currently looking for a new domain registrar for my domains.

I’m not ready to share the details of why I’m looking, but I am looking. I want to research and gather feedback before I make a choice and actually start moving domains.

The following are important to me in selecting a new registrar:

  • US-based, or a has a US business office.
  • Phone support (or chat support) available.
  • Price, of course
  • Must handle .com, .net, .org, .us TLDs at the very least.
  • Ability to store a credit card for automatic renewal
  • Is primarily a registrar, not primarily a hosting provider.

I would prefer not to consider GoDaddy as an option because of the elephant shooting incident, but I’ll entertain discussion on the subject.

Have a suggestion for a registrar? Please leave me a comment below. I would appreciate hearing the name of your suggestion, an optional URL, and why you like or suggest the registrar.

How to install BCM4318 Airforce One 54g in Ubuntu Natty

Getting the Broadcom BCM4318 [Airforce One 54g] working under Ubuntu Natty only relies on getting the proper wireless firmware installed. Kudos to NMI who did the in-depth testing on this one.

In Synaptic package manager, install theĀ firmware-b43-installer package. Or, at a terminal, enter the following:

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

This should install the necessary firmware and enable your wireless device within moments.

It sounds like this may be related to the BCM4328 chipset issue.

Please share any feedback you have in the comments below. Thank you.
