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.

History:
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.

Japanese company consoles US partner.

Below is an email exchange between myself and a Japanese customer of ours:

Dear Mr.Hoops :

We are so much shocked to know the terror for the U.S.A. yesterday morning mainly through CNN TV.

All the common Japanese are keeping sincere sympathy in this disaster with deep sorrow for the numerous victims and wishing to support the U.S.A., we are the allied powers each other during more than 50 years.

Japan & the U.S.A. have been constructing the solid reliance as the powerful countries of freedom & liberty.
Although we have also been fighting together in the economic area as the best competitor, we, both countries & both people, should cooperate with in protecting such terrors and begin to fight off
the terrorists until the end of such kinds of atrocity.

It is impossible to restrain our strong anger & hatred for the devilish scum with no human mind.

We are praying that all the persons of Technology Associates,Inc. are safe from the ugly terror.

God save you,

Uemura Masaaki

Dear Mr. Masaaki,

Thank you much for your kind words and sympathy. If you have been to America and talked with the general people, then you probably know that many people here do not agree with what our government does in foreign policy. Most Americans want to make the world a better place for everyone and wish to protect the innocent. But many Americans also feel we shouldn't be sticking our noses in other peoples business. Whoever is responsible for this has a deep hatred of Americans and probably because of our foriegn policies. And, appearently so do his followers.

You will hear our politicians calling this a "cowardly act". I think we should call a spade a spade. If someone hates us so much that they are willing to give up their lives to take ours and send us this message, this is hardly the act of a
coward. And, to confront our military directly is just stupid. Clearly the person who masterminded this is not stupid, but is very hateful. The cost of lives of this incident is world-war scale. The financial burden will be felt throughout the world as well. I estimate the total cost of this incident will reach a trillion dollars if the towers are restored. Our government says "we will not be afraid, we are still free and they have failed." I disagree. Our airports are shut
down, public events and business are shut down - our government caused this in the name in security. When they open again, the government will push to further remove our freedom by instilling new laws and procedures in the name of "security" - thus taking away more freedom. To me the loss of lives is horrific. The loss of money is monumental. But if our governement takes
more of our freedom in the name of security, that is spit on the graves of all those before us who gave their lives to make this country and protect it. And that, could be the worst - then the terrorists have not failed at all. They will
have further helped our government empower itself.

I hope that you and your friends and families will all enjoy safe, prosperous and free lives.

Best regards,
Thomas Hoops
