View#scrollBy() will let you tell the TextView to scroll a certain distance.

1. Internal clock off by 15 seconds

This is weird and hopefully only a Moto Droid or local tower problem.

There is a difference of 15 seconds between my Droid's idea of time
and UTC/GMT. This supposedly can't happen as cellular communications
rely on 10ms accuracy and the Droid internal clock is set by cell

I'm looking for some other Moto Droid developers to take a look and
report if there is any time offset in their area. I've written a test
app and posted source and apk at . There is a
screen shot there. It's very basic - show internal time (both
System.currentTimeMillis() and Calendar.getInstance()) and show web
page at

Another simple test is to compare the phone's time to a computer that
is synchronized to a net time server. You'll need to check seconds or
watch for a whole minute. The minutes will not be equal from 45-59
seconds UTC.

The repercussions of an error in setting the internal clock could be
extensive. Then again maybe Verizon towers here are whacko in MT?
