GitHub: detecting location by IP in 2019. 🤦‍♀️

Krzysztof Jurewicz

@tdemin Strictly speaking, this is detecting location by IP with a fallback to sending documentation. Are there better alternatives?

@KrzysiekJ they're suggesting to send docs indicating I am taking classes off-campus (not true for me). My ISP only provides me with IPs that are detected as originating from another city. What am I supposed to do in this case?
