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).

The port of Marseille Fos wants to become the LNG hub in the Mediterranean region

The Port of Marseille Fos has announced its intention to become the hub for liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the Mediterranean and seeks to further promote the use of this fuel. Above all, it wants to position itself as a leading player in the region for LNG refueling operations in maritime transport.

The announcement of the port of Marseille Fos follows the completion on June 15 of the second ship-to-ship bunkering operation, using LNG. Last May, Shell carried out an operation of this type for the first time.

"With this second perfectly successful refueling, the port of Marseille Fos confirms its expertise in the field and shows its ability to develop this type of operation," said a statement from the port authority.

The French port added that it hopes to deliver an LNG bunkering vessel for refueling in 2021. It also confirmed that the energy giant Total will build a similar vessel next year to supply propulsion container ships LNG from CMA-CGM which will call at Marseille.


With the increasing demand for alternative marine fuels, ship-to-ship LNG bunkering has become a more popular option due to the significant reduction in sulfur, CO2 and nitrogen oxide emissions, such as requires the recent regulations of the International Maritime Organization, says Kallanish Energy.
