Just in case anyone thinks I'm getting all socio-political or somethin': I was arguing against the balkanization of our office seating arrangements...

I think you should solve this problem via defenestration.

...Well, okay, I really just lose at this game because I use so many fifty-cent words in my normal vocabulary that I can never remember what's considered a "big word" anymore. The director at my old job once said to me, "I love getting emails from you. I always learn at least one new word."

Ah, I have fond memories of the day I learned what defenestration meant. :)

I'm always fond of the alternate geek definition: to erase Microsoft Windows from your hard drive. :)
