Try NYX.  telnet to nyx.nyx.net.  There you can create your own account and get access to a c compiler.

I've cut and paste the login screen.  It has a phone number if you don't have SLIP/PPP access to the net.

Welcome to Nyx, The Spirit of the Night                          
(303)-871-3324
nyx.nyx.net -- 206.124.29.1
nyx10.nyx.net -- 206.124.29.2

The account was free last time I checked.  I gave a donation several years ago of some nominal amount (starving student and all) of like $10.
