in reply to Favorite programming language, other than Perl:

I met a guy in high school ('94) that did QBASIC. I was really intrigued with the whole 'programming' thing at first. I dabbled in it for a month or two and gave up programming completely for basketball and girls. 6 years later a co-worker introduced me to perl and I fell in love with it! I've been programming in perl ever since. I could always follow VB, but I just didn't like it. So I'd have to say that second to perl is BASIC.

    Fortunately for you BASIC has risen from the dead. It's now been ported to the Parrot runtime engine. And for you naysayers who think BASIC is all washed up, it's even more advanced than Perl 6!

    And much, much more.
