Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates.
In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name

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

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

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.

Stripping screw threads|
on Fri, Dec 6th, 2002 18:00:01 UTC
I brought a Model 3 a few years ago, and it has served me very well over the years. The one problem I have come across is that it is too easy to over tighten the case screws and strip the thread.
I have now done this with three of the four screws on the case and subsequently have to tape it together with gaffer tape.
However, there is still a thread far below the level that the screws stop at when putting the case together. Is it possible to use longer screws, which would distribute the pressure more when tightening and hence lessen the risk of stripping the thread?

Older units had shorter screws. The newer units have longer ones. You can send your unit back to warranty repair. When it is repaired, it will be fitted with the longer screws if it doesn't already have them.
