    I'm not sure why Jim made the comment "too bad you don't spend some time on people who bought the software". I wonder if Jim is actually a customer or if he has made a support request in the past. There is no way to tell with just his first name.

    Actually, our customers are served very well. In the last 30 days we have solved 53 of 56 support requests with the first response within an average of 11 hours. Not bad for 7/days per week world wide support. The three unsolved requests are simply waiting for a reply from the customer.
