I am a Computer Science student at Carnegie Mellon University. I have started a project to connect a PC to a Wii as a controller. Using a Bluetooth library to connect to a device with an undocumented connection protocol is really confusing.

I rarely post anything, but my twitter is @murgatroid99

I recently created Image Ponify

I have a webpage that, as part of a challenge/assignment in a class, I want to rank highly in Google for the term "hitseeker": The Hitseeker tumblr blog

Honestly, it's probably worth doing at least a preliminary search before you ask a question. The answer on Urban Dictionary was the third hit on Google when searching for the title of your question.

comment What bow should I use to maximize my ranged damage?
DPS is what I'm asking for. I already said that we are assuming wooden arrows, though I don't expect that changing to a different arrow will change which bow does more damage. If you excluded infusion the answer would at least partially answer the question. And if you think that answering the question is too much effort, don't answer it.

comment What bow should I use to maximize my ranged damage?
How are there too many factors? I have one simple objective function: damage. At the very least you should be able to narrow it down to "bow 1 if you have low stats, bow 2 if you have high x and y stats" (maybe a couple more options, depending). If I have N stat points to distribute among str, dex, int, faith, there should be one bow that does the most damage so the answer could be a function of N. And why do you think it's OK to not answer this question? This is the question that you are answering.

comment What bow should I use to maximize my ranged damage?
This answer, while helpful, fails to address most of my question. You only show the scaling of un-upgraded weapons, which is misleading. I already said that I would re-spec to maximize scaling, so leaving me to consider "which stats I am concentrating on" is unhelpful. Plus, do Sea Bow and Composite bow do exactly the same damage at the same stats? If not, the table is misleadingly oversimplified. And it completely fails to answer my primary question: assuming that I can respec to take advantage of scaling, what bow does the most damage?

OK, I understand the basic idea of scaling; I just don't know specifically how it affects damage. And "good move set"? Do different bows really play so differently that the difference is more important than the damage difference? In any case, I still want to know what bow does the most damage because that's the criteria I want to use to decide what bow to use.

There are actually a lot fewer bows than I expected. However, there's a lot of information to synthesize here, and the wiki is not complete. The bellkeeper bow page, for example, has no information about the infused version. Plus, I don't really understand how scaling works. It would be much more useful to just have an answer that says "This bow does the most damage."

I've actually been using the bellkeeper bow for a while, because the scaling is good. But I can't really tell if it's the best because scaling seems to depend on upgrade level, and I can't upgrade every bow to 10 just to check.

comment Who/what is the Embedded?
You are right, lore question are allowed. I was not trying to imply that this question was not allowed, only that you shouldn't have high expectations for an answer. However, "What's your theory?" questions are definitively disallowed as "primarily opinion based".

comment Who/what is the Embedded?
I find it interesting that you call the description "rape-y", when describes a person restraining theirself from "the temptation of the flesh" and then willingly awaited someone finding the key and stabbing him. More relevant to the question, given how sparse Dark Souls II lore is, it's likely that your answer will be "there is no more information about the Embedded."

comment How can I catch the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog?
Just to make sure this is clear, my comment was referring to the previous revision, which had a picture of Monty Python, not Minecraft.

comment How can I catch the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog?
I would seriously suggest removing that picture. It's not at all relevant to the question and it makes the post look like a joke. I know that it's a fun reference, but it really makes it look like you're not asking about something that's actually in the game.

Your title mentions one game and the tag mentions another. What game are you asking about? I'm guessing GTA5 from the content, but I've never played either.

There are other options, like "the data was exchanged immediately but the device did not indicate that to you for a few minutes".

So you're saying that those specific combinations worked for you before but they don't now? If so, the problem sounds like a hardware problem but it's hard to be sure.
