Luckily for me, it's my own code
That is something I envy - most of the code here was written by inexperienced programmers handling things too big for their hands. Result: logic, GUI and hardware management mixed all unhappily together.

It's taking years to descramble them, which means that we're getting to a faster and leaner platform... on a dead technology. And sicne we sell custom software for each customer we have to maintain hundreds of versions of the same software. Add that most of these environment cannot be changed, which means that we often have to maintain 10 yeras old versions... We'll be digging more and more.

The ETA to rewrite everything from scratch is 2 years, which actually means 3, and that would require us to stop doing every ordinary work to concentrate only on building the new software - of course this is unfeasible. Training a new resource would take us approximately the same time... we're down in a hole and we're keeping to dig it. If only they paid overtime I'd readily write the new software on my rest days, but for 8€/hour and no overtime they can really duck my sock.
