From Usenet jargon
to the office:
Not now or not here. "Let's take this point offline." Used in meeting
s for items that come up that need discussion
but are not on the agenda
, and do not need input from everyone
at the meeting.
(Often confusing to me because I work for a dot.com and in meetings we are usually discussing online products. I hear the phrase and do a double take as I sort out the appropriate meaning of the word.)
