What to do with a RaspberryPi 4?

Hi. I just bought a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 2 GB memory. I started using it with the Raspberry Pi OS, just to get used to it. But I wanted to do something more with it, maybe a little home server. Some ideas would be appreciated.

For home use: file server (super useful if you don't live alone), mail server, torrent box, mesh net node (exotic but still)
For 1337 use: set up a honeypot and gather creds while riding public transport!

Use it as a small scraping server.

Using Bluetooth with the honeypot?

The honeypot seems like an interesting idea, can you tell me more?

Set up a:
- Home Automation System ( https://www.home-assistant.io/hassio/ )
- Media Centre PC ( https://kodi.tv/ )
- Torrent Server ( https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-qbittorrent/ )

Honeypot would likely be setup with a 4/5G modem in a USB port, using the onboard WiFi to broadcast a hotspot "Free Train Wifi" and then you intercept and record all the traffic passing between the two and extract creds.

Pi-Hole is a good project to prevent ads everywhere you go (https://pi-hole.net/) takes a little massaging to get it just right.

i used some of this but you will need to edit the iptables to go through your tunnel (tun0) 

A quick installer way for skids is to use this shit: 

curl -sL https://install.raspap.com | bash

thus to make the bitch work for you; you will need to: 

1) Create the access point and test it functionality (see if you can connect to the pi wirelessly and get out to the internet)
2) Bring up the VPN tunnel 
3) Route the IPTABLES and save them 
4) Bring up the hostapd / Wifi interface
5) Test the connected devices and see if they are encrypted and going out the tunnel (not just out the Ethernet)

If you get stuck with the iptables use the following:
