Wonderful Flickr Error Message

While updating one of my panoramas (replacing an existing image) on Flickr, I got this amazingly nonsensical error message:

Flickr Error Message

Is the file size limit 10 TB? Was I uploading an image larger than 10 TB? Waddya mean MB for pro users?

Thankfully I already knew the file size limit is 20 MB, so I could just ignore the stupid message.

Here’s what I believe the error message was trying to say:

File was too large – the limit is 10 485 760 bytes (20 MB for pro users).

I still can’t figure out why they would ever specify 10 MB in bytes though?!
