When I started codeforces (2 months ago), I didn't realize what a handle is? So, now, I want to change my handle. So, 2 questions- 1. Can I change my handle? 2. Comment below some handle name to give? (like a suggestion).

Officially, you can't change it. But there is a tradition where Mike lets people change it during "New Year's Magic" which happens around Christmas time. (You can also temporarily change the color of your name for 2 weeks which is pretty fun)

      Well, usually there is the main thread, which handles all the UI events and has to deal with user input and stuff, but then if you want to do some cool computation, you can bring up a second thread to do your vision processing and things like that. That's where the fun really starts
