I went ahead and renewed my domain name, zyp.org with NSI for the moment. It ends in two weeks, and I didn't want to chance problems, so I figured I'd shell out to them, and then get it transferred. My last attempt at getting it transferred didn't go through, and I've spent a month working on it without finding out why it hasn't gone through.
I've also decided that I'm no longer going to use alldns.com. If anyone has any suggestions for good, reliable, cheap, Domain registrars, let me know. Right now, I'm considering joker.com. I'd be very interested in checking out others though, if anyone knows of a better place.
