If you bet the farm — or even just a bushel of beans — on software from a vendor that later went belly-up, we want to hear about it.

Redmond Magazine is planning a story intended to help readers deal with software from vendors that no longer exist — aka "orphanware." We want to hear your horror stories, your ideas for how to deal with the situation and tips for ensuring you don't get stuck in the first place.

Contact Paul Desmond, Editor, Redmond Magazine, at pdesmond@101com.com; put "Orphanware" on the subject line of your message.
