A Little Bit About Me

My name is John Brandon Kunefke, but I answer to Brandon, due to the fact that my Dad is John Raymond Kunefke, and it would have been kinda confusing to have Mom yelling at John and not knowing which one of us was in trouble.

I have been married for 16 years. Christle and I married on July 31, 1999. I have three beautiful daughters. Alaina is 14, Lily is 9, and Sunni is 3 years old.

We home-school Alaina and Lily. We've been doing it for almost 9 years now, so we've gotten a pretty good handle on it.

I enjoy working with computers. I graduated from Lamar Institute of Technology with an Associates Degree of Applied Science in Instrumentation Technology in 2011 with a 3.907 GPA. 




What I Do

I am a Process Controls Specialist.  I work on everything in between Process Operators and the Instruments in the field.  The computing equipment that the Operators use to control valves, etc. in the plant are complex and require specific levels of attention and care.  

The equipment I work on is comparable to the computer that your car uses to control the cruise-control or a thermostat that controls the temperature in your home, although much more complex.


Why This Site?

I could probably look up the timing of when I built this site, but I'm feeling lazy at the moment.  I built this before social media became so integral to daily life, but I'm having a difficult time letting it go.  I mainly got it so that I could have an email address that was mine, so I wouldn't have to worry about losing it if a company went under.

It's also nice to have a blog where I can vent.

I've recently moved to a more cost-effective hosting solution so it wouldn't be a burden on our finances.
