["hung up"] Equivalent to wedged, but more common at Unix/C
sites. Not generally used of people. Synonym with lockedup, wedged; compare hosed. See also hang. A hung
state is distinguished from crashed or down, where the
program or system is also unusable but because it is not
running rather than because it is waiting for something.
However, the recovery from both situations is often the same.
