Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders
and services issues will be handled by them.
Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates.
In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name
of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000,
Technology Associates successfully operated a small
chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold
and serviced computers.

in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest
Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself
of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores
to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight
and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops
and Derone Bryson. In 2007,
the organization formerly known as Technology
Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and
Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.
This site is still a
functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products
manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However,
the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before
the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.
Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops
is privately employed in a manufacturing company as
it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various
projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends
and continue to explore new opportunities together.

SS.ZIP about 12MB is here.
Most of the size is due to a large amount of sample data.
1. Make a directory or folder you wish to install the system into.
2. Unzip all files into that folder or directory.
3. Older systems (win98 and less) may require a "config.sys" file
with the additions of:
4. For multiple register configurations use "set" command and set REGNAME.
For exmaple "SET REGNAME=REG1" will case it to use the REG1.CFG file.
1. From the DOS command Line type "TA" press . The
system should run. At this time, there is no manual, well, this is
the start of one. There are no limitations or expirations on this
program. However, to fully determine capabilities and understand how
configure the system will probably require support since there is no
manual at this point.
For Technical Support, a PayPal account or
credit card will be required to pay the support fee. To schedule
support and check rates, call 702-933-3277 and ask for SimplySales
support. At the time of this writting, support is billed at $20
per 15 minutes or call. If you can figure out how to configure it
and run it, it's yours to use. Source code will be available before
a manual is. So, watch for that. This is actually a very powerful
system and has features many modern systems still do not have.
use this system today in our business.
