Gentryk timeout
Explanation:
Det er den tid telefonen venter mellem tastetryk, for at undgå at du f.eks. skriver 'e' tre gange i et ord hvor der kun skal være et.
Man kunne selvfølgelig også gøre det 100% dansk og skrive 'Tid før gentryk' det virker bare forkert syntes jeg. Timeout er et af de ord vi har adopteret fordi vi ikke selv har noget passende.
