FWIW, bamm.com (BooksAMillion) is about the only place I'll buy books
online any more. Good selection, great prices, etc.
When I lived in Nashville a number of the Netcentral  guys were
regular NLUG members, and Netcentral was almost always an event sponsor
(loot for ITEC shows, coffee and donuts at installfests, etc.). As far
as I know (from conversations some months ago with one of their
programmers) all their sites and in-house systems are still running
Linux with maybe some FreeBSD.
after ordering some books I got some bamm.com mailings, but they stopped
after an email and I haven't seen any sign that they sold that address
(I always use site-specific email addresses when ordering online).
 the company that built the sites and the back-end software, since
bought out by Booksamillion who retained all the people
