Scrolling GridView - Retain Scroll Position on Postback

The cleanest example I have seen for this feature is by Sergey Akopov.

Sergey implement a jQuery example that works wonderfully! Here is the link to the article. I attached the ZIP file same code, which is on Sergey's site as well. (3.01 kb)

Here is a link to a pure JavaScript example (older 2006). I have not tried it out but wanted to save the link as another example.

U9GT 2 Cube Android Tablet Review

I own an ACER Android tablet. I was looking for a tablet with a size for magazine reading than a 10.1 wide screen like the ACER.

I bought a new U9GT 2 Cube Android tablet from China,  I would recommend you do not buy one.  I put in a claim at AliExpress and did not release my funds to the vendor.

Issues with the U9GT 2 Tablet:

  • Low quality build
  • Touch screen has a very slow response
  • The construction is basically a glue together screen and case. The unit I have the screen is coming apart from the case
  • Good things about the U9GT Tablet: Nothing.

Conclusion: Spend $400 or more and buy an ACER, ASUS, Samsng, Sony, or XOOM. You will pay maybe double the price of the U9GT but it will be worth it. After using the U9GT junk tablet my ACER A500 elevated to a higher level then I thought previously.

Android Disconnects from WiFi

I have an Acer Android Iconia Tablet A500 and it kept dropping the WiFi.  I wiped, reloaded it, applied the patch and nothing would fix it.

I was about to sent it in for repair. Then I noticed my HTC EVO 4G was doing the same thing!

Like many people it "seemed" like my Windows laptop did not have the issue. Really Windows handled it better and reconnected. Android would drop the the connection and disable it!

Solution: After some research the issue was that a new neighbor moved in and they had two routers both on channel 1. Guest what? My router was on channel 1. This caused some the Android O/S to get "confused" and it tried to connect to the neighbor's router and could not and the connect dropped.

Download inSSIDer and check out the channels your neighbors are using. Then go into your router and pick one that is not being used, or you can barely pick up from the other people living around you. You can also download a WiFi app for Android, but it is better to use the one for Windows if you can since it will keep the connection.
