Juggling more than JAVA?

Hey gang,
I enjoy working on getting up to speed with JAVA. However, I primarily do Lotus Notes & Domino development. This makes it more of a challenge ramping up my JAVA skills. I was curious how many of you are actively juggling other languages/development environments while your at work and what are they?

Along with Java, I am studying COBOL in school.

From project to project I may be working on Java, Perl, C++, PHP, regular HTML, or Dynamic HTML. I've been doing this for over a year, so I'm starting to get used to it. By the way, where I work, we have to test everything on IE and Netscape on Macs, PCs, and Linux comps.
At the moment I have two projects. One I'm doing in PHP, and the other in Java.

I remember asking the same question to a colleague three or four years ago. I found that learning a second language unlearns the first one. But I was still wet behind the ears then. Today I use four languages concurrently without difficulty. It does not matter which. All that matters is that, it can be done. Just keep plugging away at it, you will get used to it.

School depends on whatever class I'm taking at the time, next semester it'll be C++ (hopefully I can get a previous teacher to find an independent study for me to do in Java). At work I do mostly web based apps. Active server pages (no JSP yet), a lot of HTML, database development (access, SQL server, mySQL), java script, alot of server configuring and things along those lines too. Dabbled in Lotus/Domino when If irst started but they've moved away from that.

I'm also a Notes/Domino person (for nearly the past 5 years). Most of my day to day work involves Lotuscript and formula language. I'm focusing on core Java for SCJP before I start to really dig into the Notes java classes. I also have some mainframe background and occasionally do some work in SAS. It is frustrating trying to learn new skills outside the context of a full time job, but I guess many people are dealing with that challenge these days.
