He he. The reasons are quite funny.
Java because its faster and more memory efficient than interpreted
languages like Perl.
PHP because Facebook uses it and you can easily outsource development to
.Net because, well, its obviously the industry standard.
Python because its got all the data bindings you could possible want, and
data is important -- BIG DATA -- right?
I've opted for Python as the lesser of the various evils.

the parts you are reassembling were disassembled by you. Therefore,
if you can't get them together again, there must be a reason. By all
means, do not use a hammer." -- IBM maintenance manual, 1925
