    causing delay but no interruption

    So a 4-hour downtime, during which all services are inaccessible and/or paused, is not an interruption? What's next - black is white, up is down, short is long?

    "This text [snip] can t be used until date format between CMP-AP and and censhare is not harmonized" Exactly: since it in not harmonized yet, it must be displayed. That's double negation for you.

    About 30 years ago, Microsoft realized that they wanted to sell Windows for servers, but minimizing server down time is critical and Windows needed at least several hours a week for updates and frequent reboots. So they decided that weekly updates and daily reboots are not "down time" if they're scheduled. I remember an advertisement claiming that a room full of Windows servers were running with no down time (but anyone who worked with Windows knew that it needed scheduled reboots and updates) next to an article about a "lost" Unix server that ran unattended and without interruptions for 11 years, until they wanted to do an upgrade and couldn't find it. Tracing the network cable led to where the server closet had been closed in with drywall.

    I don't think #2 (which I submitted) has much to do with the team being bilingual; in non-English speaking teams it's customary to write comments and anything code-related in English even though the content is in Swedish. This is your usual "someone left a developer comment in production" but I thought the mention of Kim made it extra funny

    Yes, and the suggestion is to add a roughly 3% charge to cover the associated transaction fee.

    This error dialog box looks like a .NET Framework one, for Windows Forms applications. Since the application seems to support displaying some kind of user picture, I guess the picture is corrupt, which is known to cause the image processing library to throw OutOfMemoryException.
