IIRC, I believe that I'd heard that the 1100/62 piece of garbage was the

TI Calculator (TI-52 and TI-59) -> Algol -> PDP-11 ASM -> Pascal -> APL ->
BAL -> LISP -> prolog -> Ada -> C -> 68K ASM -> Forth -> Smalltalk ->
C++ ->
Java

Over the years, I probably did the most in Pascal, 68K ASM, C/C++ and Java.
And SQL, if that counts.
