Software customer support done right

Those of us who have had to either give or receive customer support, here's a posting by Manton Reece (author of a Mac software package called "Wii Transfer") about how to provide good support (and at least one example of how not to).

In this world where far too much communication is done in a dark room with a phone or computer instead of meeting people face to face, making connections with those you support is paramount.
