in reply to Favorite programming language, other than Perl:

Hmmm...
Had to go for C++, reasoning something like:

C=64 basic - ugly as hell, but my first language
C=64 Assembler - so incredibly fast in comparison with C=64 basic
680x0 Assembler - the most readable assembly i know
Pascal - thank god I only had to use it one for 1 trimester
Prolog - Apart from the fact that it's so useless, i really like recursion with backtracking
Perl - the best example of a computer-language designed for comunication between humans.
C - Like assembly, but less readable ;-)
C++ - C, but with OO and (I think) nicer syntax.
