Many people already feared the staff because they banned there *** !
Well, it depends entirely on what you want to do. You can't make a counter in HTML or JavaScirpt, you need a server side language (PHP and Perl are the most popular server side languages).
Would use a hammer to fasten a bolt? A screwdriver for a nail? Or a wrench for a screw? Different tools are needed to perform different jobs. Computers are no different. Except that instead of building your workbench out of material objects, you're building it out of knowledge. Acquiring that knowledge is usually more difficult (or time consuming I should say) than running down to the local hardware store. Thatís why we get paid more
But then sometimes the existence of languages are the result of business competition (or microsoft's attempt at monopolization).
I think you hit on the biggest pain in the rear about this game. Unfortunately if you seriously want to get into it then you're going to have to learn those languages, as the more you know (and I mean really know) the more marketable your skills will be, thus the more attractive you will be to a prospective employer. Its also worth mentioning that once you've learnt them you still have to continue studying when new releases of those languages are released, and when totally new technology is released. The salary (in my humble opinion) doesn't equal the commitment. Personally I think I should of studied law or maybe even a doctorate - it would have been a damn site less studying!!!

Well, in my humble opinion, if you consider it studying then it shouldn't be your career choice. Your career should be something you take a real interest in (if it wasn't your job, would you do it anyway?). Think about your hobbies and try turning one of them into a career.

Good way to think about it. I love what I do. It is a real thrill for me to be able to make a new website and see the results when I am finished, or to learn a new Internet language...Just today I received two books that I oreder - PHP advanced and a book on MySQL. I can't wait to start implimenting the things that I learn. Never stop learning...
