Technology. You’ve got to love it.
Recently, an attempt was made to upgrade a certain PC to a new operating system. In the process, a very large portion of the hard drive’s contents were inadvertently and unexpectedly wiped out. This includes all my Sims 4 saves, including the late Poindexter family.
After many attempts at recovery, including intricate technical procedures as kicking things, punching them, and swearing loudly, I’ve had to resign myself to the fact that the Poindexters have, sadly, passed on.
The mourning period is mostly passed at this point, so there’s a good chance something else will rise from the ashes of the Poindexters, but at this point I think they’re beyond saving.
