Well now I don't know what to do

A large company which has, for several years, owed me money for a not-insignificant amount of freelance work I did for them back in the dizzo, has recently filed for bankruptcy protection.

Which, if I understand Chapter 11 filings correctly, means that (a) as a non-secured creditor, my claim for payment takes an even lower priority than it did when the company was solvent, and (b) even if the money owed me is paid, at least part of it will be paid by the government, meaning that essentially, I'll be sticking the taxpayer -- which theoretical person is made up of most of you, as well as myself -- with my fee.

I...I probably should just forget about this one, huh.
