humma in Technology

A filler word used on various "chat" and "talk" programs when you had nothing to say but felt that it was important to say something.
The word apparently originated (at least with this definition) on the MECC Timeshare System (MTS, a now-defunct educational time-sharing system running in Minnesota during the 1970s and the early 1980s) but was later sighted on early Unix systems.
