None of the ones I ever signed as a student (or since) included any clauses that would cover this.
Also just because you break the agreement it doesn't mean the landlord can say "pack your bags". They have to issue a section 21 (basically we want you out), go to court and have a judge agree (they are the only people that can say you HAVE to go) and get county court bailiffs (only people that can throw you out). Looking at a good 7 or 8 months for the full process. Same rules apply if you don't pay rent or break any other clause, if they don't have the specific clause in the contract the judge might not even agree with them. One of the good things about the UK is the protection tenants have.

FFS does this guy think the GitHub people are just sat there thinking "oh well, we could get it working by pressing Enter... But hey let's wait a while until someone asks. We get it all the time when something is down "Can't you just get it back up?!"... Oh that is what we are supposed to be doing. fsck off
Well fortunately we are moving forward all the time to make equality a thing. However there is still a way to go. This is more about a time and a place for such things. No one is trying to ban people not wearing very much dancing, but this is not the time for it. It might have been a few years ago but we have since progressed passed that (although no where near as far as we should have, i.e. women having to wear heals in work, in some places)
As you have your eyes open, try looking forward, things that were okay even a few years ago, are not okay now, it is called progression. Think of it as v2017.11 of software if you shall, better than v1960.10 but not as good as v2020.01
On a second note: "However, move along now, I've seen behind your curtain too many times to alert to the wolf cry."... wtf are you even talking about?!
Thank you! All of the sex, booze and drugs made for a really a fun 4 years.
Now lets talk about why you keep taking money out of my pay slip every month? What is all that about, I thought people like you paid for it?! What you didn't have to pay for your degree at all? I guess it is actually people like me that are not paying for yours too.
Unless you travel to America and use a computer when they can only show you the US library. It is location specific, not users registered location.
For what it is worth I do agree that I would rather be able to use a VPN to the country I am registered in. I used to have my router configured to a VPN in London (being UK based) but had to remove that after the restriction came into play.
I am sure Netflix would much rather not spend the extra money on the VPN! Why would they want to limit content, I am sure if they had their way everyone would be able to access everything, making it attract more people = more money. Instead the content providers are saying you can't show it in X,Y & Z countries.
Yes it is annoying (I was part way through Suits using an American VPN), but I can hardly begrudge Netflix for it.
> Strictly policed speed limits I also find dangerous as it is easy to engender road-rage for travelling below the speed limit and blocking those behind who may have cruise control...
Laziness is no excuse. Remember it is a speed LIMIT not a speed TARGET. Drive at 3kmh below the LIMIT then you have that bit of flexibility, everyone is a winner ay. Although it may take you an extra minute (heavens forbid) to arrive at your destination.
Further more if you have cruise control on and notice you are approaching the car in front drop down the cruise control a couple of KPH, you will hardly notice the difference (3km/h is half of walking speed after all).
