If "free" time is your time outside of work, ie: unpaid production time, then you would be volunteering to rewrite a commercial grade application without compensation.

If it will be done during working hours and there is no "official" cost center, then where is your time charged to? If you are being paid, someone is absorbing the cost.

Only monkeys work for peanuts Smile | :)

The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
