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.

In 1992, 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.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors 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.


TEXT VIEWER (sw.txt) last updated October 06 2017

SimplyWrite TEXT Editor

If you're a text junkie, you probably wouldn't believe this product
had been around since 1988 - then called "FreeForm". At that time, it
was cutting edge with a completely open field, line drawing, builtin
calculator with dates, mail merge, column editing block formatting,
dot commands, and all sorts of things - even a column summation. Not
the usual text editor, but very simple to use. Of course it improved
overtime. The last time it was compiled was to fix the Y2K problem
in the calculator.

I still use SimplyWrite to this day. There are just somethings that
nothing else does as well as SimplyWrite. We thought it was so robust
yet easy to use (back in the day) that we used it for determining if
new employees were intuitive users. Well, enough history. SimplyWrite
only requires one file to work - SW.EXE However there are some supporting
files which add function and improve performance like the dictionary files
and the video configuration file. It should be covered mostly in the
documention which... I've not put up yet cause I still have to convert
it to PDF. But you old DOS hackers ought to be able to figure it out for now.
I will post the Y2K compiled version later.

SimplyWrite was written in Borland C by me.
Happy shooting.


sw.zip - click to get it.
I have just started this project of putting all this stuff up here
so bare with me. Currently the newer compiled version (Y2K) is not in
here. I'll have to put it up later. But everything works except the
date in the calculator.
