I am currently unable to purchase the PiScreen (looks very cool) from the ozzmake website. At the shopping cart I tried to update my shipping address using the Calculate Shipping tool, I am located in Perth. Unfortunately I receive a message stating:
"There doesn‘t seem to be any available shipping methods. Please double check your address, or contact us if you need any help."
If I try to continue anyway I receive a 404 error for the wesbite:
I know you have changed hosts recently and was wondering if everything made it across and is working as before?

yes, we apologies about that.
We are waiting on our hosting provider to re-certify our SSL certificate.. and it is taking longer than expected. 🙁
You can purchase through Tindie and it will still be processed by us and shipped out of Sydney.

No Problem, Thanks for the alternative! I'm just starting out with the BerryIMU and fancy a chance at the PiScreen too ^_^.

I purchased the PiScreen Kit through Tindie, unfortunately I could not find a switch in the packaging that was shipped. I will follow up with Tindie about the switch as this is probably not your issue.
My question is: it appears to be a simple 3 pin switch, can I just solder a piece of wire between the On & middle pin on the PCB to get the PiScreen to work? When I get a chance I'll pop to the local electronics store and get a replacement 3 pin switch.
In the meantime, are there any side effects to the PiScreen always being on other than power consumption?

That is our fault, not Tindie's. Please accept our apologies.
I am more than happy to send you out another switch at no cost, but we haven't got any in stock. We have some arriving next week.
In the mean time, you can solder the holes to close the connection. Check the traces on the PCB to see which two of the three holes are used for the switch ( I haven't got one in front of me at the moment).
There is no issue leaving it on all the time. Infact, I never turn my test PiScreens off and I have one that has been running for 6 weeks straight and still going.

No problem about the switch Mark.
I managed to get it all up and running. I have the console loading to the screen which works a treat. I am halfway through getting X to load to the PiScreen, I had to leave for work -.-
Just to confirm it is the square whole nearest to the "On" text on the PCB and the middle whole that need to be patched to complete the circuit. I just used a small piece of wire and soldered it across the wholes. They are so close together you could probably just use solder to connect the wholes if you wanted to.
