very sad to hear he has passed but I'm really really glad he got to accomplish what he did. Everyone has those unforgettable NES, SNES and N64 moments that might not have been without his influence on the company.
Yup, that's what I got it from it as well. Plus it's powered by Django...which this site no longer uses. ;_;
It looks like a similar content delivery system to what Giant Bomb and comic vine use (they did build it after all). It's less to do with the front end of websites and more the inner workings sorta like wordpress.

It may be time to consider dumping all of that volunteer work and maybe some of those clubs as well.
Whatever your career is going to be, you should do this and then with the freed up time, do stuff related to your career. You don't just want to spend 4 years in school and end up being only a degree closer to your job when others could already have experience in your chosen field. Work experience is almost always going to trump anything barring the job requirements themselves.
It's sad to say but it's the path to being unemployed with no skills if you don't get your foot in the door now.
