Sounds like you could probably sell this really well, and if you 
developed the thing "at work", perhaps as you were developing your 
programming skills, it probably was not done as well as you could do it 
now. I'd suggest you map out just what you want it to do, rebuild 
(stronger, faster, better), and make it really pretty. Sell, retire a 
millionaire, etc.
