This is C# code, which is one of the languages of .NET. You would typically use an IDE like Visual Studio.NET to create programs, but it certainly is not required. Everything that you need to compile programs is actually part of the .NET Framework itself.
There are even other free IDE's out there (SharpDevelop comes to mind), and Visual Studio 2005 will have a free Express version for the hobbiest developer to use (you should be able to find a beta version today, and a final version in November 2005).
This code is only the functional fragment of what a larger application would be. You could take this code, drop it into the main() of a console application (think DOS program), and then use Task Scheduler to run the console app every 15 minutes. That would
overwrite the file every time that the task runs.
