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.
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.

here are some suggesions and comments for a more useful pogram in the device:
1.have the timer mode be at the dimmest setting that has all 4 LEDs lit
2.have On/Dimmer mode start at the lowest setting and go up to the highest
3.have the level in On/dimmer mode that has 2 LEDs lit use the two middle or the two outside ones
4.If there is not enough space left for code the remove the different levels on Flash mode and strobe mode

| here are some suggesions and comments for a more useful pogram in the device:
| 2.have On/Dimmer mode start at the lowest setting and go up to the highest
I like the idea of being able to turn it on at the lowest level instead of the highest, but having a way to set the option to start "full on" or "dimmest" would be really cool.
| 3.have the level in On/dimmer mode that has 2 LEDs lit use the two middle or the two outside ones
I think that with the pulse-width modulation, 4 LEDs at a lower power setting would actually provide more light more efficiently than two LEDs running at a higher power level.
| 4.If there is not enough space left for code the remove the different levels on Flash mode and strobe mode
I'm not sure, but I think the flash and strobe modes use a very simple method to use the number of "Rate" presses as a variable, and doesn't actually store each individual flash rate as more code. The information to strobe is already there, it just takes an extra variable to determine how to slow down. Kind of a (using simulated 'code'):
Do While Mode = Strobe
Slowness = 1 + RatePress
For X = 1 to (Slowness * 50)
Or something like that.
Maybe I confused things.
