Just over a month ago, I made a big transition. I changed jobs. With that came a change in computers and a change in main programming languages. I’m probably the youngest guy actively developing new COBOL code.
I’m getting used to the new development tools, but some things I just can’t handle. Why develop in nano (pico) when there are so many other great text editors out there? The problem is that my work machine has a program called Deep Freeze which prevents me from installing new applications. What’s a guy to do?
Portable applications! My home drive is “unlimited”, so if I save my applications there, I can run them as need be. Perfect.
What applications can I just not accept, and what applications do I use instead?
