bomb
Last modified: Monday, September 01, 1997 

To fail. The term bomb usually refers to a program hanging or ending prematurely. Note that bombing is usually less serious than crashing, because bombing refers to a single program, whereas crashing refers to the entire system. The two terms, however, are not always used consistently.

The Apple Macintosh computer actually has a bomb message that sometimes appears just before the system crashes.
