Like any project, this project will start with an initiating phase. What I want exactly do, and how will I do it?
For the first version of this project, I don't want to be too ambitious. The teapot will be a simple web server hosting an Error 418 html page. Maybe it can host the blog too, but I'm not sure it will be a good idea.
The hardware system is divided in two parts:
The teapot have to be small enough to have an good WAF
. A to bad WAF may cancel the entire project.
The teapot have to be big enough to support the server.
The teapot don't need to be used to brew tea.
The teapot-server will be hosted at home, with my personnal Internet connection.
It will use an Ethernet connexion, as I don't like wifi.
Operating system and software may be open source, but it's not an strict constaint.
The budget for this project will be between 50€ and 100€ for buying hardware parts (including teapot and server) and domain name reservation.
The deadline for the project is 2012-12-21: I really want to plug the teapot-server before the end of the world.
