Cubical designers must be the stupidest fuckers out there. Who puts power outlets right where your feet are? An idiot, that's who. The outlet would serve the most good either right above or right below desk level. This could easily be done if the power distribution was put into wall joiners, basicly two or three inch wide peices that would go between two sections of wall. It could be like a power strip with outlets going up it's whole length. This would work, and you would not be continuously kicking the cords at the jacks and unplugging your computer right before it finishes a massive download.
God damn cock suckers. Get a fucking clue about how your product is used.
