I recently applied for a promotion at work. Today I had a series of assessments which built up to an interview. I've got it!

Don't jinx it. Murphy('s Law) might have something to say about your promotion.

If anything, Murphy's Law(anything that can go wrong will) would get in the way of Moore's Law.

Thank you.

Thank you very much everyone.

Symok, it's a little difficult to explain because it's a combination role:

I work in tech support. On one side: Agents who are stuck come to me for advice and, if a customer demands someone higher, I'm it. On the other side: I'm an assistant manager and tutor to the agents.
