I feel like this puzzle is hard to do if you have to do all of it in your head...it's literally just 3 windmills which push black's pawn so far which sets up a mating net.

Qb7+ Rc6 Qa5+ Rc5

Unless the computer is blind, this puzzle has no good solution

I think there's a solution: Qd2# at the end
