While I find cracking open hardware interesting at times, I really enjoy the advice/helpful hint videos from TR Dojo. I hope the new name "Cracking Open" doesn't reflect a loss of the (advice and helpful hints) videos.

To see both the image and the image navigation bar, I have to scroll the screen upward a bit. When I select the next image, the screen returns to its original home position. Surely there must be some way to leave the screen scrolled where it was when the new image appears? Other websites seem to do this regularly.
