uninteresting    : [ən'ɪntrəstɪŋ]
Uninteresting \Uninteresting\
See {interesting}.


Uninteresting \Uninteresting\
See {interesting}.

uninteresting
adj 1: arousing no interest or attention or curiosity or
excitement; "a very uninteresting account of her trip"
[ant: {interesting}]
2: characteristic or suggestive of an institution especially in
being uniform or dull or unimaginative; "institutional food"

1. Said of a problem that, although {nontrivial}, can
be solved simply by throwing sufficient resources at it.

2. Also said of problems for which a solution would neither
advance the state of the art nor be fun to design and code.

Hackers regard uninteresting problems as intolerable wastes of
time, to be solved (if at all) by lesser mortals. *Real*
hackers (see {toolsmith}) generalise uninteresting problems
enough to make them interesting and solve them - thus
solving the original problem as a special case (and, it must
be admitted, occasionally turning a molehill into a mountain,
or a mountain into a tectonic plate).

See {WOMBAT}, {SMOP}. Compare {toy problem}. Oppose
{interesting}.
