2000–
Dabbled with it when I first got into programming, using "C For Dummies Vols 1 and 2" grabbed from Amazon using my mum's credit card. Never made that much progress with it; I lost interest and tried to tackle projects that were far too difficult for me at that stage.
2000–
Similar story as to mine with C. Again, lost interest for the same reasons but have increased confidence with it these days having used it recently. Doesn't stop it from being highly dangerous and hideously complicated though :D
2000–
Rented a book from the local library about Pascal, gave up, took the book back, never looked at it again. Nothing wrong with the language itself, it was just me losing interest (as ever).
2001–
Learned VB6 at school for Standard Grade Computing. It seemed great at the time but has been eclipsed by the newer Microsoft toolset and a much better OO paradigm.
2004–
First looked at it in 2004, never got that good with it though.
2005–
The first language we were taught on the first year CS course at St Andrews. I'm still amazed at how many highly intelligent people just didn't understand basic OO concepts, and ended up dropping computing entirely.
2006
Taught how to use it for basic statistical operations at University. Once you get over the bizarre syntax it's actually not too bad.
2006–
Learnt the basics on an IT course in St Andrews. Also used it to power our hack for Hackday 2009. It's absolutely horrible and is essentially one giant kludge, built on the dubious foundations of an early version of the UNIX command set. If you really want to torture yourself and avoid anything remotely resembling decent programming practices at the same time, then PHP is the way forward. MVC? What's that?
2007–
Taught some basic MIPS-2000 assembly using the SPIM simulator on a University course. Complicated, but seemed so rewarding when stuff finally worked.
2007
Used it for a logical deduction exercise at University. Had to use the "Hugs" system to correctly work through formal logical arguments. It melted my brain. I don't understand it at all.
2007
Used it at University. Doesn't seem useful to computer programmers, more like an engineer's modelling tool.
2007
University assignment in Flash... long time ago, not missing it.
2008–
Taught it at University, and is now my language of choice for rapidly hacking stuff together. It's great. It's like a version of Java that actually works. I use it over Visual Basic these days where possible.
2008–
Used it at University to learn some advanced UNIX stuff, also had a failed attempt to use it at work to try and automate some stuff.
2009–
Never used it before, until I used Django for the Secure E-Commerce assignment. It was quite nice, might keep on using it.
