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.



There are NO good Presidents,
NO good senators and
NO good congressmen!

Imagine a room that people walk into, but nobody ever comes out. This room is Washington. And, what nobody realizes is that this room is filled with a poison gas called corruption. So, you select your best, your strongest man with the will of a hero, who even himself believes he can enter the room of the "unknown" and save everyone.

But, when his time comes, he enters the room and, within minutes, he is overcome by the fumes. He never returns and everyone assumes they didn't send the right man, or a strong enough man, never knowing that there is no "right" man, and that strength has nothing to do with the ability to return successful - the problem cannot be beat by strength or righteousness.

Washington controls more wealth and power than any other institution on this planet. As the old saying goes, "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely". Washington is absolute power. If a decent man enters Washington with a decent thought, and he has the strength to promote that thought despite the waves of influence, he will not have the strength to survive the force of influence.

How can we win?

  1. Don't send a man to Washington. Men are not Islands. They have feelings, family, items of importance which can be used against their wills. The man to send to Washington can not be a man, he must be a machine: A person with no family, no loved ones, no desire to have loved ones, and a remaining life span of no more than four years.

  2. Don't send money to Washington. The only way to remove power from Washington is to starve it, not combat it - it's too powerful to beat in a battle of force. By paying taxes, we continue to give it the fuel which it consumes for its own growth and perpetual, ever increasing hunger for more.

  3. Are you insane-not pay my taxes? No, I'm only stating a solution, I didn't say anyone would ever feel strong enough to try it. Even if they did, many people would have to feel the same way at the same time to have any effect. Our system is like a tumor that's spread too far. The operation is likely to be deadly; so we'll get as much out of our life as we can, then when the body finally dies, so will the tumor.

  4. Is there another solution? The Libertarian Party has the ideals that would solve this problem, but men still have to go to Washington with those ideals. A lot of these men would succumb to the fumes, but maybe enough would survive long enough to start a gradual (very gradual) change.

    Some people consider the Libertarians radicals who want to return to the ways of the old Wild West. When you really examine their true platform, I think you'll see how much sense it makes. But, for those of you who still disagree, consider this: Everyone knows that no single man can save or ruin our country. Our country is like a giant truck speeding down a dead end road. Electing a few radicals might be the equivalent of firing a couple of rounds into the engine block. It may not get the truck going in the right direction, but it might at least slow it down.

  5. Vote Libertarian in '2000!
    THAT's RIGHT - THAT's what I said when I wrote this back in 1998. Here we are, 2007 now look at us. So let me revise this vote Ron Paul 2008!
    If Ron Paul scares you, ask yourself this: Which scares you more, Ron Paul or more of the same? More of the same will bring us down soon. More of the same is anyone who's voting record shows they will just deliver more of the same. Check Ron Paul's voting he is NOT more of the same!
    Ron Paul Ron Paul Ron Paul Ron Paul Ron Paul Ron Paul!
    I did things different this year. I made a campaign contribution to him early in hopes it will make enough of a difference that I will get the chance to vote for him.
