  1. Go to lunch.
  2. While at lunch, consider what your "website" actually has to do to be considered a successful delivery of service by your customer. Both by the letter of your agreement, and its spirit.
  3. Return to work
  4. Use existing infrastructure (including any cloud service like AWS) if possible. Purchase external services if necessary. Use the answers you have from Step 2 above to meet your commitments.
  5. Confirm you have successfully met the terms of your agreement with your customer, in writing.
  6. Have a meeting with your contracts management staff early next week. Bring a very big sledgehammer, so that they understand your explanation of the position they put you in without notice or planning.
