Marc Brooker on leases
Good advice from Marc Brooker on using leases as a way to handle leader election in a distributed system: 'Leases are a nice primitive because they are easy to understand, easy (if subtle) to implement correctly, require very little co-ordination, optimistic, and don't require much load on the strongly consistent service.'

Topfloor - Free Residential Lease/Letting Agreement Download
GFDL-licensed legal boilerplate agreement for the Irish market. Nice one -- although did I see a commercial company charging for what appears to be a derivative work of this document? is that a breach of the license terms?
