ah I see. I thought you said something before about changing registrars... At gandi.net the process is also not so user-friendly but the price and terms rock! My impression of joker is that its basically the same deal. With NSI and Enom, changes were finalized within 24-36 hours. But with Gandi it has taken up to 5 days...
