Seriously easy.  Go to register.com, make sure it's unlocked.  Go to
GoDaddy (or Joker.com) and transfer.  Pay the fee, and with luck, no
downtime.  I know Joker will do a live transfer, and GoDaddy I've not
done transfers with, just new registrations.

GoDaddy is one of the cheapest, that's for sure.  Better service than
Verisign/NetSol, for sure, and I've not heard good about Register.com

My ISP uses Tucows' OpenSRS registry.  YMMV.
