Please use the following wiki template call on pages you request deletion:

* find your cookies.txt file (usually $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/''randomstring''/cookies.txt)

By default, mediawiki prints modification times in UTC format. However, you may change your [[Special:Preferences|preferences]] to reflect your timezone (e.g. GMT+2).
* use
 
wget --load-cookies $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/''randomstring''/cookies.txt -O grid5000.rss https://www.grid5000.fr/index.php/Special:Recentchanges?feed=rss
 
* if it doesn't work, run wget with --debug, and check that it properly send the cookies.
 
  
NB: Be very careful if you try to edit the cookies.txt file : wget will silently forget some cookies if you mess with cookies.txt.

=Skin=
NB2: the cookies.txt file can be moved between systems (ie you can generate it on your desktop and run the cron job on a server)
+
Be careful if changing your skin as not every skins display the menus the same way. You are advised to keep the default skin: MonoBook.
