The official Raspberry Pi accessory distributor conundrum

Update (): The Swedish retailer Kjell (an RS Components reseller) began accepting pre-orders for the Raspberry Pi 400 with a Norwegian keyboard layout on 2020-12-18 (two days after I researched and wrote this article). Kjell doesn’t list an estimated availability date. Neither CPC nor Kjell lists just the Norwegian keyboard accessory, though. The Raspberry Pi Foundation added Jkollerup as a distributor of the Norwegian keyboard layout Raspberry Pi keyboard accessory on 2020-12-19.

I replaced the aging battery on my MacBook Pro

Update (): The battery capacity issue seems to have been caused by a calibration error in the battery controller. The battery would drop from 42 % to 7 % and remain there for a few hours. I failed to notice this and though it needed to be recharged. After I noticed the pattern, I just kept using the MacBook at 7 % charge until it powered off roughly three hours later. I then charged it back up to 100 %. After doing this once, the battery now reports the right charge level, and the battery life has increased to about eight hours.

You still need a storage drive backed swap partition as you still can’t swap volatile memory into itself when the system powers down.
