I'm still gonna learn [VRML] anyway, another language to put under my belt and shove down as a skill on my CV along with (yeah I feel like showing off):
    HTML

    DHTML (pretty much the same as JS)
    AJAX & Former AJAX Methoding
    CSS
    PHP
    SQL
    MySQL
    VB
    BP

The first computer I ever worked with was a Honeywell-Burroughs (sic!) at the University of Portland, circa 1966. Huge thing took up most of the building, had 400 bytes (sic!), and was programmed in raw machine language that we had to punch onto a paper tape. Vacuum tubes like Christmas tree lights, so whenever one blew out, the techs had to check all 3,200 of them. Anyway, I've forgotten most of what I ever learned, but at one time or another I either used or took a class in:
    Assembler,
    Unix,
    Cobol,
    Fortran,
    Basic
    GFA-Basic (this is what I used the most -- a cross between Basic and C, with a bit of Pascal thrown in)
    Lotus 1-2-3 macros (not intended for use as a programming language, but I did a lot of really complex stuff with it that would normally only be expected of one)
    Pascal
    C
    C++
    HTML
    JavaScript
    CSS (these last 3 are the only ones I'm current with.)
(and BTW, I can also transcribe Braille.)

wow a whole thread from something i said

does DOS count as a language   cause i guess i know that.

also to add to my wonderful list:

VRML
Object Windows ( Which is like Visual Basic just older)
and a bit of Delphi



OwenKL you have one damn long list, do you work with PCs proffesionally? or have you learnt all that in your own time

We at iVirtua use The "prototype" and "backbase" AJAX engines.
Quote:
XHTML (yeah its the same as HTML)

Lol yea, just close the tags XD I declared that iVirtua was XHTML because the w3c validator seems to think it validates better as XHTML (less errors), and it is really superseding  HTML 4.01.

CSS has also got to be one of the easiest there
ASP is pretty good in that on Windows it works well and is very efficient in running things like COmmunity Server (www.communityserver.org) and can handle those big corporate sites, indeed like Microsoft's own.  


My Programming skills are generally web based, and scripting for the web (Curly-bracket languages) include, and some Compiled languages...

HTML and XHTML (Amazing for anyone starting out, but many people don't know that its not even a programming language, and was design for the average person to use, as most of it is very intuitive!)
CSS
ActionScript in Flash
PHP and MySQL
Some ASP and MSSQL to go with that with experience in Community Server
VB 2006 Visual Basic
Basic (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code), I love all that Print 10 stuff and I also remember learning Logo
C+
C hash
C++
those 3 as part of a current programming side course
CRON (wahey I can set up a cron tab )
JavaScript and DHTML
With that is AJAX
some Java Applet programming
Pascal as part of my current course

Some I have looked in to and can generally tweak is ColdFusion,  and Perl.

I am soon to be learning Perl Scripts, and as part of AJAX, DOM and Ruby on Rails (ROR) scripting...

Question to OwenKL... Delphi really like Object Pascal? But im sure its not outdated as Ive seen something like "Delphi 2006" on our college network, im sure :S I have also seen Visual FoxPro on our network.



Here is a cool list of programming languages I found when looking up some of the ones OwenKL has experience with:

I guess I should have included DOS, too. Some things on a 'puter are as complex as a programming language, like WordPerfect or PhotoShop or MSOffice, and I've learned a few of those over time, too, but I'm not gonna even try and list them. I'm retired now, but I never was a computer professional, per se. I should have been, and eventually created some accounting programs for my work, but mostly it was hobby stuff.

Don't know anything about Delphi, so can't address that question. Also don't know Java (but I've got some books to teach myself), PHP, SQL, CGI, C#, ASP, Flash Scripting; and don't even understand what AJAX is. Knowing a lot of languages doesn't do much good if they're obsolete. *sigh*.

well yeah its not that helpful to know that old languages. it's like speaking Latin not much of a help.but its always somink to add to a list of things you know AJAX is JS on Steroids btw. It combins Server and Client side coding.

Speaking latin is quite a skill; I wish I had the opportunity to learn it; It would look good alongside law or politics

AJAX is a really clever concept. It means you could in theiry, run a forum like this one, without having to refresh the page For some AJAX stuff to try out, and too see its potential, I'd suggest the AJAX Whois...

www.ajaxwhois.com

AJAX was only really coined in 2005, it uses XHTML (or HTML) and CSS, for marking up and styling information, The DOM accessed with a client-side scripting language, to dynamically display information, and this is usually but not always JavaScript, and JScript,

the nest part is... The XMLHttpRequest object is used to exchange data "asynchronously" with the web server...

and XML is sometimes used as the format for transferring data between the server and client... but HTML can also be used.

So AJAX is

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML for creating web applications. A few web accessibility issues need to be ironed out but its all moving pretty fast with a load of sites implementing it quite easily.

really though all ajax is is the XMLHttpRequest object. ajax has been a concept which has been around for a while. eg with the use of invisible iframes scripts could be run and stuff very cool though

Mac GUI wasn't programmed by caged monkeys

It was coded by phpBB Modders for the most part  

Applesoft.. isnt that really just BASIC? lol

Applesoft BASIC was supplied by Microsoft, hence named after both Apple and Microsoft; Apple was looking for a version of BASIC for the Apple II computer  

Anyway, why did you learn that? lol

I can't do much, but the ones I do know I'm good at: HTML, PHP and GameMaker Language   .

I can also interact with a MySQL server, but I'm not pushing my luck with that. I'm supposed to be coding a PHP/MySQL site for a friend of mine, so I guess I'm gonna have to learn more...
