Way-To-Go Jomni. That's actually an ancient Japanese term meaning, "Thank you Sir. For your hard work and dedication". Either that or, "Pass the Saki", I can't remember which. O0

Jomni,

Brilliant!  Thank you for your superb effort.

I don't know what you actually do for a living, but it should be this.

You've made my day.
