I really hope that you don't throw it away. Put it in the attic or send it to someone who has got the time to mess with it.
A kludge is a workaround or quick-and-dirty solution that is clumsy, inelegant, inefficient, difficult to extend and hard to maintain.

I know the feeling, but pleeeease resist the urge! (And if you don't, film it and put it on YouTube ;) )

I used to sell Amigas back in the day and it was my least favourite too, that and we hardly sold any.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.
