If you know Dreamweaver, Python, Java, JavaScript, and CGI using Python, 
C, and C++, and you /don't know/ how/where to get started on your 
project...that is some serious indecision.  Pick your favorite language, 
and write your app.

Two years is a lot of time to dedicate to something that has been 
implemented hundreds of times.
