New guy at work doesn't have admin rights and the company wont install anything until Monday... He is going through the code in notepad to learn our system.

    I'm not sure if this helps but if there are particularly long files, he could copy and paste into codeshare.io/

    Notepad++ has a portable version. Not perfect, but it's a couple steps better than notepad.

    How anyone could do any work without owning the system is beyond me. I don't care whether it's a workstation or laptop, whether it's linux or osx... No sudo, no work.

    @-ScratchOs Ouch, tough. I get that both employers and parents (they can have a lot in common) have the urge to control their flock.

    But in any relationship honesty, communication and trust will work better than suspicion and control.

    I've been in a similar situation, not with having no install permissions, but in having no computer, I had to take turns with my friend at work, where he had to do reports and stuff and I had to install and use xcode and Android studio lol, dunno what's worse the fact I sat there twiddling my thumbs or I write 2 1/2 lines of code and get kicked off because friend needs to answer an email lol

    if a company is going to hire someone they should have equipment on standby :/
