You can surely talk about organically growing, although it is not 
hardware that it is attached to. It interacts with a few external 
systems, which keep changing, so I need to regularly update it to 
keep up with new requirements. At the time I wrote it, many many 
years ago, I sprinkled calls to the database all over the place. 
Moving to OSX means upgrading the database. Unfortunately, the newer 
database API is very different. When doing updates, I keep 
refactoring the code to move all database calls in a single library.
