It’s Friday!
Also: Hi there!
Yeah, I might be somewhat psyched that this week, which has been pretty hard, is coming to an end. Just a couple of hours left in the new office before heading home. I don’t mind these last few hours of the workweek, I try to plan fun and creative stuff, preferably things that go well with a glass of wine or two. Today, it’s snapping some photos to see if a concept for a client will work out or not. I’ll let you know how it goes, and if it gets used, because it’s kind of a big deal.
Right, enough of that. Let’s get to this week’s issue. Get ready for some serious linkage, dear bored horsies!

🇺🇦 Fellow Swede Anders Östlund lives in Kyiv. This is how it’s like, these days.
🇷🇺 A lot of companies have withdrawn from Russia, but not all. Who’s good and who’s bad? This list lets you find out.
You’d think European countries, and the EU, would’ve thought to work towards energy independence from Russia, and they – we – have, it’s just slow going. Well, perhaps not anymore, if this thread is any indication. 👇🏻

Will Russia's invasion of Ukraine accelerate Europe's energy transition?

You bet.

Here is a running tally 🧵
🔥 It’s unusually hot in both the Arctic and Antarctica, more than 40C, which is scary. Global warming, it’s still here. The war isn’t helping, either.
🦤 Resurrect the dodo. And possibly the mammoth, too. Didn’t that Hollywood documentary tell us how playing god with extinct animals play out in the end?
🤳🏻 NFTs are coming to Instagram, says Mark Zuckerberg. I wonder if they re-introduced the chronological feed to bury this steaming piece of ****?
👊🏻 I enjoyed this piece about attending a crypto bro dinner. Unsurprisingly, it sounds like a newly minted circle of hell.
📺 The Verge tells us that “fringe youtubers”, meaning people who’s videos are advertisement unfriendly for whatever reason, are, according to a study, making money outside of the platform. Well, duh? The story’s worth a look, though.
Nope. Just nope. Too many nopes. Excuse me while I answer an email, which I always do like this. 👇🏻

This made me laugh more than it should have 😁
🔒 The FIDO alliance are looking to kill the password. It’s not quite there yet, though, but I find the work strangely fascinating.
📱 It’s been a busy week on Switch to iPad, with two reviews – the Logitech MX Anywhere 3 mouse, and the Remind Me Faster app – as well as newsletter #88, about using said mouse instead of the Magic Trackpad.
🧔🏻‍♂️ Hey, look, Asahi Linux on Apple Silicon. It’s supposed to be blazingly fast, too. No surprises there.
🥸 This piece argues that finding someone else’s interests or skillset boring, is, in fact, your problem, because you’re boring and lack imagination. It’s the second duh moment in this issue, but the piece was pretty interesting. Now, I know none of my dear bored horsies are actually boring, so consider this educational only.
Okay, let’s wrap it up with some rejected Doomguy designs. 👇🏻

That's it for this week
No new posts on Bored Horse this week, which is a shame. There just haven’t been time. I must say – and here’s hoping I’m not jinxing it – that I sense the light at the end of the tunnel, though.
On the plus side, weather’s been good all week. Morning walks, coffee and the occasional smoke in the sun, it’s not all doom and gloom, even if it certainly feels that way sometimes.

I must say, I enjoy writing these newsletters. I hope you enjoy reading them. If you do, maybe forward it to a friend? Subscription is free, as you know, and it’ll stay that way. Pretty please? 🙏🏻
Also, if it’s not too much to ask, I’d love to get your input about the newsletter. Are there too many links? Too few? Would you prefer anecdotes? Bi-weekly issues instead? More horsies? Feel free to hit reply (if you’re reading this in your inbox), or just tweet to @tdh.
That’s it for this week. Hang in there, put your doomscrolling on hold for a bit, and remember the good things, too.
