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).

Fire aboard the Perle submarine in Toulon: an "annoying event but there is no danger in nuclear terms either", reassures a specialist

A fire aboard the Perle nuclear submarine broke out Friday morning in Toulon, before being brought under control in the evening. "A fire of this magnitude in a submarine is really exceptional," reacted on Saturday June 13 on franceinfo Jean-Dominique Merchet, journalist for L'Opinion, author of the blog "Secret Défense", specialist in military matters and strategic. He described the event as "important", "annoying, but there is also no danger in nuclear terms".

The submarine was under construction, everything that was really dangerous and that posed risks of pollution, such as the nuclear core, armaments, batteries, had been taken out, people were evacuated.

"We do not know how this fire started or what the consequences will be," said the journalist. "There may have been a deformation of the hull under the effect of the heat, perhaps we will be able to repair all of this, but perhaps we will never be able to get this sub-watered sailor in safety conditions for the crew, and therefore perhaps one of the nuclear attack submarines of the French fleet has been lost ", he supposed.



"Maybe we can never get [him] back to life"

For Jean-Dominique Merchet, the unavailability, for the time being of unknown duration, "will pose a problem" and be "complicated": "We only have five submarines in this category that require long periods of time. 'maintenance and therefore an extremely tight schedule,' he said. The Pearl and the other nuclear attack submarines have two missions, "to accompany the aircraft carrier Charles-de-Gaulle" and "to ensure the protection of the other nuclear submarines launchers of machines which are the heart of the deterrence French nuclear ". The fire of the submarine in Toulon will therefore cause some complications according to the specialist, but "it is not a disaster, it is not as if we had lost a submarine at sea with sailors on board. Nuançons ! ".
