Hi there,

Yes we got a few things wrong with the links as we moved to a cooler domain (, we will push a version of the MEAP with all updated links next week. Thanks for the heads up though!

For the screen, it's not that it doesn't work but that the camera turns into infrared vision at night and the LCD does not emit enough heat. So your message gets there but you don't see it smilie We resolved this by adding a Philips Hue lamp to the Pi:

That should help! Thanks for your feedback.
