    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {

            ErrorAndExit();
        try
        {
            var xs = args[0].Split(',').Select(i => Int32.Parse(i.Trim())).ToList();
            if (xs.Count <= 1)
                ErrorAndExit();

            Queue<int> sortedXs = new Queue<int>();

            Task.WaitAll(xs.Select(x =>
                Task.Delay(x * 1000).ContinueWith(_ => sortedXs.Enqueue(x))
            ).ToArray());

            Console.WriteLine(string.Join(", ", sortedXs));
        }
        catch
        {
            ErrorAndExit();
        }
