Why Codeforces is not opening on my internet connection? Is it blocked for some reason ?

I use Vodafone Connection and from yesterday's morning ,i am not able to access this site. That's why i also missed yesterday's contest.

Currently i am writing this from my friends hotspot. Can it be ISB issue or some other.

Edit : Now its working , there was some issue with isb . Thanks to everyone who helped.

Sometimes its difficult to understand from editorials , so it helps if it have online video solutions. On YouTube ,i find a lot of people solving Div-2 A,B,C,D , but almost no channel which goes beyond .

Is there any channel (YouTube , twitch or any platform ) , which makes tutorials on tougher problems like div-2 F , Global round or even AGCs . If anyone knows it please comment ,it will be helpful .

Suppose we are given two increasing arrays A and B , we need to find max((a[j]-a[i-1] )- (b[j]-b[i-1])) , where j>=i .

Can we solve it in better than O(n^2) time complexity . If so , please give me any Hint .

I had Dual Boot in my system — parrot linux and Windows 10.

Yesterday , i upgraded parrot ,but after restarting i got stuck in this grub rescue terminal (Error grub_file_filters not found), then i watched few videos on internet and tried to fix that , but nothing happened . I checked every drive but i think my window is erased, but good thing is that , i haven't lost my linux data ,they were present in msdos7 ,msdos5 (they were more imp) .

Please ,if someone knows how to fix that please help me. I presently don't have a bootable pendrive ,also because of coronavirus ,all computer repairing shops are closed in my area.

These linux data were very important for me , i had lost all of my templates (convex hull,graph algo ,etc. ) and few projects , that's my mistake , i haven't have any backup of it)

I searched a lot on internet at various platform ,but found no article to resolve this problem . Also i am unable to participate in any contest ,or study anything as all of my data is in linux . I am unable to boot it.

Please Anyone knows ,how to resolve it , help me ,i will be very grateful to you.

Is there any Platform where i can run my solution to past ICPC ,IOI ,problems???

Although ,we are given test data files (input and output) , but how to execute them on my system to verify it.

Even bigger problem is downloading those test files , for eg. ICPC 2019 problems have i/o file of around 400 MB. Which is very difficult to download such large file for just one contest.

Please , suggest me if there is any alternative way and also how can i run input output file on my system (geany compiler in linux).
