MikeMirzayanov's blog

Hello, Codeforces. Friends.

I apologize, but today I will be a bit chaotic and mix personal with public. It just happened that way, I'm sorry.

Today, my mother passed away. It's hard for me to write this. Even just seeing it in text makes it feel like something from a nightmare.

She was extraordinary. It's difficult for me to articulate it right now, but take my word for it. It felt like all the best qualities one could imagine in a mother converged in her. I don't know any other people so kind, sincere, non-judgmental, capable of love, listening, befriending, supporting, and taking joy in the world around them, and bringing joy to their loved ones. Mom, it's already hard without you, it feels empty.

She had glioblastoma. It's an aggressive brain cancer that affects only a few people out of 100,000. I believe, I hope, that science will soon be able to tackle this disease. But for now, this diagnosis is a death sentence. Maybe some of you are or will be associated with medicine. I want to say thank you, I hug you.

Perhaps this is some form of catharsis, but visiting the Codeforces pages today, I pondered why I do this. What am I seeking here?

I want to enter another world. A world free from the insoluble problems of human ambition. A world where we discuss problems, algorithms, and programming.

The world is unjust and restless. It has black, white, blood-red, and some gray shades of unclear tones. But here, on Codeforces, I'm not looking for answers to all questions. I hug all of you and wish you peace, tranquility, and joy.

You may perceive this as a whim of mine, but now I don't want to see topics here that are considerably broader than programming, mathematics, and life outside our competitions. I want a united community, an intellectual oasis.

Focus on our competitions, not on global issues, will help me personally continue to be engaged in the community, develop and move it forward.

Please refrain from making posts, comments, or any other forms of expression on contentious topics like national/ethnic conflicts, politics, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity, and any other topics distant from programming competitions that might lead to disputes or conflicts. We won't solve these problems here, we just can't.

Give me some time, and I will likely hide the most contentious posts on these topics. Please refrain from publishing anything that is beyond or close to the boundary mentioned above. By publishing materials that contain signs of such discussions, be prepared for read-only mode and other administrative measures.

I realize that I'm now limiting Codeforces and diminishing the community's involvement in our lives. But this is how I feel today, and I ask for your understanding. I wish you peace and love.

M.

P.S. Please cherish your loved ones while they are with you. Give them your attention. Bring joy to them, love them.

UPD 1: Friends, thank you very much for your attention. I read all the comments and am grateful to everyone who supported me.

UPD 2: Yesterday the funeral took place. Thank you for your support. With your help, it's easier for me to get through all of this.

        Probably because Mike is Christian, or his mother was, at least. He's Russian..

        P.S: RIP is usually said by Christians, while "May Allah.." is Muslim.

            Just edited the comment to say. He's replying 'in Muslim' over a 'Christian' comment. Looks like enforcing, I guess(speaking from downvoters POV).

            Otherwise, there is basically the exact same "May Allah.." right below, and it's upvoted.

            As I said before, I'm not really into it. If someone wishes you good be it Muslim, Christian or any other way, I don't think that's any bad. That's probably because I'm NEUTRAL with it.

            However, if you look into it from a Christian POV, they don't believe in Allah. Yes, it means a god, but as far as I know, it means Muslim god, specifically. I haven't seen a Christian referring to his/her god as Allah. That's why one might say it's a "Muslim property", and seeing someone without any relation reply over a "Christian comment" in a "Muslim manner" might be seen as disproving Christianity and that's probably upsetting for some, I guess.

              Yeah I get what you mean. I just wanted to make it clear. "haven't seen a Christian referring to his/her god as Allah" yeah you're right when they type in English but in Arabic they do say that. I personally think it's kinda weird to write Allah instead of God because it's not a name, it's not a word.

        I would argue that it is pretty ignorant to praise a mother just because she gave birth to you. A mother is much more than a child-producing machine, she is ultimately an educator, a person who molds her child, a mold that will likely remain in that child's adulthood. In other words, a good mother is good not because she gave birth to you, but because she ensured you had a happy childhood and that you develop into a good adult.

        With this in mind, an adoptive mother for example can absolutely be a good mother. Also, there are (at least in Romania) pretty many cases of biological mothers abandoning their children soon after birth.

        Finally, notice that Mike praised his mother for exactly the reason above: she was "kind, sincere, non-judgmental, capable of love, listening", etc.

Competitive programming is magical in that everything has a fixed solution here. Through hard work, through insights, through careful implementation, it is always possible to reach it. It’s like Newtonian physics where the world is an accurate place, ready for you to discover , to understand.

Sadly, what we have around us is a world of chaos, of uncertainty, of unjust. Yet, we can still keep the magical aura here on Codeforces, where we rejoice for a newly discovered algorithm, comment in awe for a carefully crafted solution, or be inspired by a problem to create something greater and more beautiful.

May your mother rest in peace, and may we all keep Codeforces a warm home to return to.

I'm sorry for your loss. I also know this was certainly a hard decision to make, but I am confident that you're making the right one. I've said before that there are times and places where those conversations need to happen, just not right here. It breeds divisiveness within an otherwise close group of friends. Thank you for your leadership in the community.

I'm deeply sorry to hear about your mother's passing, Mike. I wish you strength to get through these hard times.

I just want to say that losing someone you love is incredibly difficult, but it becomes even harder when you experience multiple losses every day, and no one can truly understand your pain. This is because most social media platforms, like Facebook and Instagram, have implemented algorithms that often delete your posts and prevent you from sharing your sadness with others.

in that time, you will try to do everything to stop killing people who you love.

This is why some individuals post numerous messages about Palestine.

Once again, I'm sorry for your loss, Mike.

I just wanted to express my support for the people who have posted here on Codeforces.

Losing people is truly heartbreaking. :(

Mike, I'm so deeply sorry for your loss. Reading your heartfelt words has left a profound impact on me, and I truly wish I could be there in person to offer some comfort.

I too experienced a similar pain when I was younger. I lost all of my parents before 16. Losing a loved one, especially a parent, is an indescribable agony that carves out a hollow space in our hearts. Every moment, every memory, suddenly becomes both a treasure and a heartbreak. The way you've described your mother resonates with me deeply. It's evident she was a beacon of love, warmth, and joy in your life, and the void left behind is immeasurable. I know words can never fully encapsulate the pain you're feeling, but please know you're not alone in this journey.

Sending you strength, love, and a tight virtual hug during this difficult time. If ever you need to talk or reminisce, please know that there are people here, including myself, who are ready to listen.

Thanks for idealizing it as you did and especially for making it a place where we can all get along and focus on problem-solving, regardless of the complex issues of the world that would have us divided. To me, everything you have accomplished so far, definitely makes the world a better place. I'm confident your mother was very proud of you.

"I want to enter another world. A world free from the insoluble problems of human ambition. A world where we discuss problems, algorithms, and programming."

I can relate to this. And I think this is a big reason why I love programming contests. When I participate in a contest, all the sad and unpleasant things of my life gets washed away from my mind and I enter a state where I can think about nothing but the problems I am given. Thank you for this platform.

A mother's role is truly of uttermost importance in a person's childhood, but not only a that a mother provides a support system for her son during his adulthood, a connection that no one else could ever provide, the connection of motherly love.

Seeing the words of your blog, I can feel you are deeply saddened by it, Rest In Peace, I am sure that she will find peace, I also wish for the best for you, thank you for even contributing even in such a serious event.

We will be always with you man.

I am grateful to your mother, Mike, for giving birth to such a beautiful son

May Allah give her a beautiful place in heaven.

My grandfather also passed away. And believe me, everything that is and will be in our family is all thanks to him. He was a very, very wonderful man. When I remember him, it becomes hard for me and I want to hug him very much. When I wrote the blog, I cried. He was really proud of me.
