[asa] The first uninteresting number

A friend of mine, Mike Anglin, sent me this -- it reminded me of
Vernon's claims:

"The number 1103 is the first of a sequence of "uninteresting" numbers. These
are numbers which have NO unusual properties or characteristics whatsoever.

Being the first of this sequence is, however, an interesting property
of 1103, so that it can no longer qualify. And so that the next
number in the series, 26390, becomes the first uninteresting number.
 And so forth :-)"

I lost touch with Mike -- does anyone here have any insight into what
might make a number "uninteresting?"
