Windows 10: the blocking for the 2004 version is lifted on the Surface

Technology: Microsoft was preventing certain Surface devices from updating to the 2004 version due to technical issues. The blockade was lifted on June 29.
Microsoft releases the block it placed on certain Surface devices to prevent them from updating to version 2004. This block prevented users of certain Surface models manufactured by Microsoft, including Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7, from downloading and manually install the latest Windows 10 feature update.

According to information released as part of the May 2020 update, devices with more than one network adapter capable of operating in "Always On, Always Connected" mode may experience unexpected shutdowns and reboots. The Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 both fall into this category. (Other surface devices can also be included; I asked Microsoft for a list of affected devices, but got no response).

Restoration: unity is strength for the Cage

La Cage-Brasserie sportive has teamed up with other restaurants to launch a ready-to-eat meal service to meet customer demand and to continue to employ as many employees as possible. "It's like starting a new business in the space of a week," explains Jean Bédard, president of Sportscène, the group that manages La Cage-Brasserie sportive. We are in the process of major reorganization. We do not have a choice. "
 


Since Friday, it is in particular possible to order, on the chain's website, the classic burgers from La Cage, the braised beef parmentier from Chez Lionel, a restaurant from Boucherville, cretons from the Avenue - institution of Plateau Mont -Royal known for its breakfasts - or even the maple syrup pie from the Crémy pastry shop. Certain local beers as well as Quebec ciders and wines are also offered. There are also groceries like La Cage's chicken wings and ribs.

Everything is prepared in a factory - owned by Sportscène - located in Saint-Jean-Baptiste-de-Rouville, in Montérégie. The adaptation of the facilities cost the company $ 500,000. Originally, the place was used to vacuum-pack fresh fish and beef for burgers for chain restaurants. Before the crisis, the Cage offered a reduced menu for take-out orders and began to make deliveries. Since the Legault government ordered restaurants to be closed, the chain has had to rethink its business model.

Same challenge for Chez Lionel. "We are trying to find an income stream," emphasizes Stéphane Riopel, owner of the establishment. Everything is stopped, let's stick together. The Boucherville restaurant will offer seven different dishes - recipes from chef Frédéric Dufort - on the La Cage site at your home.

At the moment, a dozen people are busy preparing food at the factory and that number could increase.

"I wish we could make our world work as much as possible. I had 3,200 employees two weeks ago. Now I have 50. "

- Jean Bédard, president of Sportscène

Customers who order on the La Cage site from you will be able to pick up their meal at one of the 14 branches - out of a total of 42 - open only for order service.

Will this new company created by the chain survive the crisis surrounding the pandemic? "We could keep the site after the crisis," says Jean Bédard. It was our vision [long term]. "

There are even plans to prepare ready-to-eat meals for supermarkets. A vision also shared by Stéphane Riopel. "Yes, I would like to continue. I would like us to be able to penetrate the grocery store network with the Chez Lionel brand. "
