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.

Cheap Bike Helmet Mount for EternaLight
by jmagecko on Sat, Dec 8th, 2001 17:00:02 UTC
I've found that I can easily, cheaply, and securely mount my Model 3X ErgoXray eternaLight to my bicycle helmet using a single 12" long plastic cable tie. I used 2 for added reliability.

The beam ended-up oriented pefectly. The cable-tie is threaded through the lanyard hole, over the case top, between the two middle LEDs, down through a hole in the helmet, back under the top of the helmet, back up through another hole in the helmet, and in through the locking-clip.


Important notes! For safety, do NOT drill any holes in your helmet. I used pre-existing air-vents in the helmet. For comfort, I also made sure the locking-clip of the cable-tie was located on the outside of the helmet when the installation was completed.

My helmet is a Bell Sports (www.bellsports.com) "Rattler" ...apparently no longer made. I'm sure any similar helmet would work.

The top air vents are centered and aligned such that when the eternaLight is attached in this way it is virtually perfectly aligned side-to-side and vertically to point where I am looking. The "Craze" and "Arc" helmets look similar.

Note: I've also found a product called the "Handy Bundler" is really useful for securely attaching odd-shaped items, lights, batteries, etc. to equipment such as bicycles and camping/caving gear. This item basically lets you create your own cable-ties of any length up to 50ft. It can be found in discount stores for under $15 these days but can be hard to find.
