Yes, there's a bootstrapping problem here ... possibly the easiest way to
avoid depending on a server that sends cookies when reconfiguring it not
to send cookies, is to point the script at In my setup the script
runs in a dev environment generating a static file that is deployed to
production, but it's effectively the same trick of making the script use a
different DNS server.

Rough or very rough. Rain or showers. Good, occasionally moderate.
