/mon'tee/ [US Geological Survey] A program with a ludicrously
complex user interface written to perform extremely trivial
tasks. An example would be a menu-driven, button clicking,
pulldown, pop-up windows program for listing directories. The
original monty was an infamous weather-reporting program,
Monty the Amazing Weather Man, written at the USGS. Monty had
a widget-packed X-window interface with over 200 buttons; and
all monty actually *did* was FTP files off the network.
