No need to be rude to people who post helpful links.

It also doesn't say how much RAM you need nor whether it works if the
day has the letter 'T' in it... because they are not relevant :p

The fact you know about these additional parts of PA is actually working
against you here - you know too much and it means you try to push them
into a situation where they are not mentioned because they are not

But cheekyness aside, the cookie is not used in system wide mode, the
access is controlled via the membership of the pulse-access group.

There should be no tweaks needed on .pulse/client.conf (the file should
not even exist unless something manual has been done).
