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.

Re: Supreme Court

Unfortunately, I was out of state when this
finally came to a head and was decided. I
could spew reams about corruption (and I have -
Click Here )
but the fact is that we ourselves are to blame
for letting things get this bad. We have
allowed decades of legislators to sell us
security and fixes for problems which we should
have taken responsibility to handle ourselves
as individuals instead of trying to get fix-all
laws, committees and agencies which apply to

These laws and their infrastructure
are so thick, so compounding and confusing that
leagues of experts can not agree on their
meanings anymore. When that happens, your have
what I call "corruptable interpretation". In
other words, since no average citizen can
understand the totality of the laws, we appoint
experts to interpret those laws. Those experts
are corruptible either by direct lobby,
threatening influence or through misleading and
deceptive information. The governor was quite
clever, using Nevada's balanced budget law, he
got the legislature to approve the budget
before they thought about funding it. Then, he
threw that gap back on them. I noted,
according to the RGJ, that a majority of
expense in the budget was allocated to police
and fire. It's a shame that the public accepts
these expenses without question. There are so
many laws which need no enforcement. So many
laws in which we are better off without
enforcement. And, so many laws which were
designed to prevent events which are
statistically irrelevant. Were I on the
legislature, I would have proposed a
significant cut in police funding. To offset
that, I would propose an increase in citizen's
policing rights. And then give the police
departments more opportunity to use volunteer
citizen help. Many policing duties do not
require the intense training police officers
undergo. Cell phones and eyes for watching go
a long way. As for laws which they try to
enforce, for example, I don't feel that most
citizens need protection from prostitutes or
more so, the "johns" they service. The
"stings" they set up are a waste of taxpayer
money and destroy peoples lives who are
otherwise productive citizens.

I am quite sure there are many other such
opportunities for cuts in other agencies and
departments which do not affect schools or
educational services.

The puppet masters are so arrogant these days, they could care less whether or not their audience even likes the show.
