Google Chrome doesn’t delete my cookies

Yesterday I was on a site where I accidentally logged in with a banned account.
So i clicked the “2 pins” icon next to the address field and deleted the “stored data”.

Then i refreshed the page but the cookies were still set, unlike on Firefox, where the cookies are actually deleted.

This has got to be against some EU privacy law.

Oracle are scammers and criminals

How to get free real people addresses and bank account data?

Offer something “for free” and require those people interested in the free offer to give their name, address, phone number and bank account data, then suspend their accounts for made up terms of service violations and refuse to delete the data after deletion has been requested.
That’s what Oracle does with their Oracle Cloud offering.

I have reported this practice with the German GDPR data protection person.

So you can create your account online, for free, no snail mail required, but you’re supposed to write a snail mail letter, and pay 7€+ for a registered letter, because if you don’t they’ll just say that they didn’t receive any letter.
So you have to waste time, paper and energy to have your data deleted, despite you having made a demand to an Oracle support employee.

This is fraud.

Copy large qcow2 image via rsync between 2 servers

Very large (400GB+) .qcow2 file that needs to be copied from HostA to HostB, where HostB is behind an ISP that does 24 hour disconnection of the connection.
Also because other people live in that household that use TV streaming, the bandwidth consumed should be limited.
In this case I’m on a 100MBit/s connection, and I’ll limit the transfer speed to 4MB/s.

We will use rsync for this.

The command is simply,

sparse means, skip transfering zeroes or empty, unfilled data.
bwlimit=4000 means limit the transfer speed to 4000 kByte / second. aka 4Mbps.
info=progress2 shows a prettier progress than just --progress
partial and append-verify allows us the resume the transfer one the 24 hour disconnection kicks in, without needing to start from the beginning. It also verifies the transferred.
