Wow, https://www.zed.run is easily my new favorite blockchain-based NFT game! Without getting too deep into it, the NFTs in zed run are virtual horses that you can race on the Zen Run website and also breed to make new baby horses! How fast a horse runs for any given race is determined by the horse preferences (such as preferred gate or distance), the horse's genetics (a combination of breed, bloodline, and genotype), and a bit of randomness. Here's a screenshot of what some horses racing looks like!

This past summer I set up a little 6-dollar-a-month Ditigal Ocean linux server to run crons jobs for different coding projects like my Plug-N-Play Twitter Engager and some stock analyzer scripts. It was a pretty barebones server instance so it took a bit of work to get into production-ready state.
