I write a mixture of silly and serious blogs, but my most recent blog was unique. Here it is:
I am an American coder who lives on the east coast. Recent contest times have made it hard for me aswell as other American coders to partipate in recent codeforce contests, which hurts my ability to climb the ladder. I speak for a large portion of the community in that codeforce contest times are inconveniently placed at periods in which the western hemisphere is asleep. I am aware that codeforces is a Russian website and a portion of the community lives in Europe/Russia/Asia, but a time in which both parties could attend and participate contests would be great.
