So here I am sitting at work...bored...as usual...just doing data entry all day long...
So I decided I wanted to do some programming, but of course these computers don't have any compilers on them. They do have the Visual Basic Macro thing that comes with Office, but that is all. I'm not a VB kind of guy though...I need power...and fast.
I decide to download the .NET Framework and the .NET SDK on to my computer and do some C# programming, because I am currently learning C# and I think it is a really cool language.
Unfortunately, I need admin rights to install the .NET Framework, and I don't have those.
So, starved for programming, and not able to do C#, I turn to my favorite pasttime: C++
I have a few options, as there are several free C++ compilers out there for download. But I want an IDE to work in as well. I also want it to be small and lightweight. After much thought, I think about the old Borland Turbo C++ 1.1 sitting on Borland's Museum website for free download. I decide it is perfect for my needs and quickly download, unzip, and install it.
So now I have Borland's 1st C++ compiler ever made sitting on my computer.
Oh the joy! :D
Anybody else bored at work?
