21:46:22 <ynpvisitor37> hi
23:57:02 <Kevin L> Looks like good news and bad news. Confirmed BH last night at 0242ie. The good news is that is only about a 30 hour interval!
23:57:56 <ynpvisitor61> :)
23:58:41 <Kevin L> Now if we could train it for daytime eruptions.
00:00:10 <Dave from B> Good morning, everyone!
00:00:15 <Kevin L> Yea Dave! Welcome back!
00:00:21 <Dave from B> Thanks to Kevin for his computer expertise!
00:00:49 <Dave from B> Yes, Suzanne sat thru a LOT of Turbans last night
00:03:38 <Dave from B> Morning, Jenna
00:04:42 <Jenna> morning
00:06:56 <ynpvisitor61> are you in with Firefox now Dave?
00:08:19 <Kevin L> In case anybody is having problems getting on, tell them to delete cookies and temporary internet files. That should work. Worked on my Firefox and Dave's ie.
00:09:30 <ynpvisitor61> I will try that, thanks. I am in Chrome now but would rather have it in Ffox for my multitasking.
00:09:44 <Dave from B> Putting more than 1 browser on a computer makes me nervous. I just use IE
00:10:18 <Kevin L> You don't want to mess with a business computer too much.
00:13:20 <Dave from B>'s hard enough to keep my 5 computers working over a network
00:24:21 <Kevin L> Heading to the shop for a bit.
00:28:03 <Jenna> Lion 827ie
00:34:26 <Dave from B> Darn, I missed Lion
00:36:06 <Jenna> it was just a lot of steam
00:36:11 <ynpvisitor61> and Daisy
00:36:20 <Jenna> can barely see water back there
00:38:56 <Dave from B> Low of 41F last night at 48F
00:41:31 <Jenna> it's already 86 here
00:41:35 <Jenna> I would love 48 right now
00:41:57 <Dave from B> Ouch...that is hot for not even 10 am
00:42:59 <Jenna> Conor wanted to play outside last night and it was still 95 at 7 pm with the heat index
00:43:02 <Jenna> just crazy
00:43:52 <Jenna> Oblong?
00:44:02 <Jenna> so hard to see this morning
00:44:31 <Dave from B> With so much steam could be Grand area just heating up
00:44:42 <Jenna> true
00:52:14 <Dave from B> OF 0852ie
00:52:24 <Dave from B> Dangerous wind direction
00:54:45 <Kevin L> Wow that is hot for you Jenna! Out here we usually have about 3 weeks of mid 90s for lows with 100s lasting past midnight. This year we have only had one horrible week and it looks like we are just about done with the really hot weather now.
00:55:07 <Dave from B> You have had a good year, Kevin!
00:55:30 <Dave from B> We have also had a nice summer...No days over 100 which is unusual
01:03:20 <ynpvisitor61> ..
01:12:27 <Dave from B> Morning, alex
01:12:36 <alex (at work)> Good morning dave.
01:12:51 <alex (at work)> looks like a beautiful day in the basin
01:13:00 <alex (at work)> probably Billings area as well
01:16:37 <Dave from B> It is a great day
01:18:33 <Dave from B> Mornin', kc
01:19:53 <kc (working)> morn
01:44:21 <ynpvisitor20> Is that bhi or just steem?
01:45:00 <ynpvisitor20> Would be a short interval, however as crazy as it has been anything is possible
01:47:36 <Dave from B> That is bhi
01:47:39 <ynpvisitor25> I would guess night Beehives have been missed because no one was out there to see or hear it.
01:48:37 <ynpvisitor20> Still it would be about a 7 hour interval and that would be short
01:49:04 <Dave from B> 25, I think you are right...Hopefully, there is a logger on site for later download
01:49:09 <ynpvisitor25> yes, do not think it will go now, I was meaning it was not as infrequent perhaps as GT suggests
01:49:32 <ynpvisitor25> logger downloads no longer mean we get the data, unfortunately
01:49:47 <Dave from B> 5-7 day intervals more than likely have 1 or 2 missed nightime BH's
01:50:48 <ynpvisitor25> it would be awesome if it did erupt now, it would bring some gazers back to it.
01:51:31 <ynpvisitor25> BHI done?
01:51:46 <ynpvisitor20> Looks pooped out. Have no idea when it started.
01:52:19 <Dave from B> Surprised it drew a crown....they must not know it went last night
01:52:23 <Dave from B> crowd
01:52:49 <ynpvisitor25> may be OF walk about group
01:52:50 <ynpvisitor20> Tour?
01:53:38 <ynpvisitor25> geyser hill walk and talk
01:54:12 <ynpvisitor25> lots of clouds for so early in the day
02:00:20 <Kevin L> Grand ie?
02:00:34 <kc (working)> yep
02:00:59 <ynpvisitor25> Grand is all over the place with intervals
02:01:23 <ynpvisitor25> nice light
02:02:43 <Craigmon99> Have we stopped reporting OF on GT?
02:02:46 <Dave from B> Yippee
02:02:47 <ynpvisitor25> must have caught the end
02:03:11 <ynpvisitor25> wow
02:03:13 <Kevin L> 2nd!
02:03:16 <Dave from B> Yes
02:03:28 <ynpvisitor25> that was quite the spike
02:03:31 <Craigmon99> Why?
02:03:53 <ynpvisitor25> pretty sure yes was to the second 99
02:04:13 <ynpvisitor25> you are always welcome to post on GT
02:04:17 <Dave from B> correct, 25
02:04:34 <Dave from B> Let's be greedy and ask for 3
02:04:42 <ynpvisitor25> yes please
02:04:49 <Craigmon99> Oh ok
02:06:22 <Craigmon99> So...
02:06:47 <ynpvisitor25> 2 and done...that was a huge 2nd though
02:07:10 <Dave from B> That was nice...wish we would have caught the start
02:07:18 <Kevin L> We still report OF to GT. The camop was not on the chat page this morning an may not have been on for the last little while (This may happen more in the next week.)
02:07:46 <Dave from B> Yeah....many camops headed to OF, I presume
02:07:53 <ynpvisitor25> not all cam ops post to GT
02:08:23 <Craigmon99> Thanks, wish I could've seen grand :P on a mobile device
02:08:28 <Kevin L> If you see an eruption and it doesn't get posted (I usually wait to post OF until I can confirm long so it will be about 5m before it shows) feel free to post it.
02:08:29 <ynpvisitor25> you can call VC anytime for a prediction
02:11:45 <Kevin L> Livescope has BSOD again today so I am driving blind.
02:42:45 <ynpvisitor37> Lion
02:43:02 <Dave from B> 1043ie static
02:43:17 <Kevin L> yea
02:43:58 <Dave from B> Have we missed 2 eruptinos or what is going on?
02:44:35 <Kevin L> I thought it was over, but there must have been some not reported. This is not an initial for sure.
02:46:56 <Kevin L> Time for some Daisy fishing.
02:49:13 <Dave from B> We should be hearing from LGB very soon. 2 consecutive 37 minute Fountains yesterday..seems early for Morning but it is possible
03:34:13 <Jenna> yes Kevin we had a hot stretch and then a nice, cool stretch and thought we were done
03:34:37 <Jenna> Obviously not, heat index is 96 currently
03:34:43 <Kevin L> I sure hope we are done
03:35:09 <Kevin L> Daisy 1135
03:36:12 <Jenna> Friday and Saturday supposed to be 98
03:36:14 <Kevin L> I was wondering if I missed it.
03:37:19 <Kevin L> Wow. We are supposed to be 93!
03:37:33 <Jenna> that doesn't happen very often!
03:38:03 <Kevin L> Plus we are supposed to have rain.
03:38:24 <Jenna> We have not had a drop of rain all of August
03:38:45 <Dave from B> We have had 0.12" in August
03:40:00 <Jenna> at least we haven't had to mow the grass...although I have to water my flowers a lot more
03:41:42 <ynpvisitor93> Lion roared
03:42:07 <Kevin L> Or yawned
03:45:22 <Jenna> my parents will be headed west in about an hour
03:46:12 <Dave from B> Are you sneaking onboard Jenna?
03:46:24 <Jenna> I wish!
03:46:56 <Jenna> I did try to figure out a way to join them, but with them gone, as well as my sister (florida trip) that would leave Scott to deal with Conor by himself
03:47:04 <Jenna> while working also
03:47:22 <Kevin L> That could get ugly.
03:47:27 <Jenna> exactly
03:47:28 <Jenna> haha
03:47:39 <Kevin L> you could take him with you.
03:47:48 <Jenna> I could
03:48:44 <Jenna> It would probably be a lot of me and him wandering while mom and dad wait for Grand
03:49:41 <Kevin L> I took a blanket and some of those Thomas the Tank Engine trains and he stayed occupied for hours.
03:49:57 <Jenna> that would be nice
03:50:09 <Jenna> we could barely get him to stay in the theatre for the movie Planes yesterday
03:50:52 <Kevin L> Is that movie any good or is it just "let's see how much money we can make off the success of Cars"?
03:53:32 <Kevin L> of 1154
03:55:15 <ynpvisitor82> Lion puffing
04:15:01 <Kevin L> Looks like the Dodgers are getting into their normal end of season mode Dave.
04:18:05 <Dave from B> Yes, Offense seems to be on vacation this week
04:22:33 <Kevin L> They were showing a high school football game on the channel that shows them (Angels were on again of course) so I was going to bed but my wife had on one of those horrible shows on Lifetime :p so I went out to the depot and discovered the game was on WGN.
04:27:56 <Dave from B> Your wife and my daughter Becca would get along real well. She gets sucked into those shows as well.
04:28:50 <ynpvisitor50> Wow, you can see the clouds moving
04:28:51 <Dave from B> Hi, Maureen!
04:28:58 <Maureen> Fountain is doing some screwy things...HELP
04:29:09 <Dave from B> Thanks for pinting that out...they're moving fast
04:29:15 <Maureen> I did not go in, yet the news is another short double interval
04:29:18 <Dave from B> What happened?
04:29:31 <Dave from B> Are you sure it's a double?
04:29:49 <Maureen> only 32 min. and folks that were there at 0730 feel it was, yes. Like the other night
04:29:58 <steve> wha t did fountain do?
04:30:29 <Maureen> look on GT Steve. The other night we went out at 0230 and it did not erupt until 0608.
04:30:45 <Maureen> Then it was over 11 hours, and only 32 min. this morning.
04:31:09 <Maureen> I was not there, yet I know the feeling from the other night, when you finally figure you have a LONG wait
04:31:30 <Maureen> drat
04:31:32 <Dave from B> Yes, a long wait is usually good news!!
04:31:49 <Maureen> except when it is a 32 min Fountain instead
04:32:04 <steve> Hmmm... maybe its shifting back to 6 hr intervals. Maybe not also
04:32:15 <Dave from B> Graham is going to be mad that you broke it, Maureen!!:D
04:32:25 <Maureen> Ha ha, it wasn't me.
04:32:37 <Maureen> It will certainly make the overlook less crowded if this keeps up
04:32:54 <Maureen> folks will not be happy they missed that amazing 2 burst Grand
04:33:07 <steve> We can blame Suzanne
04:33:18 <Maureen> ha ha, she probably blames herself.
04:33:33 <Maureen> she finally got a 2 burst last night, and if not for her being there, we would not know Beehive erupted
04:34:20 <Maureen> what next?
04:34:37 <Maureen> Lynn is back today I think, maybe she will get it fixed
04:34:41 <steve> Well, I just stopped in for a short time, I need to get back to work. Right now it looks like I will arrive in the park Friday night
04:35:20 <Dave from B> Should be a quiet afternoon in the UGB
04:35:25 <Maureen> see you soon
04:35:40 <Maureen> maybe F & M UGB will happen to shake things up
04:35:58 <Kevin L> At least an Aurum.
04:35:59 <Maureen> I thought when we had no report that a dual at Morning was happening...NOT
04:36:15 <Maureen> maybe 2 Aurums...
04:36:23 <Dave from B> Me too...Now when do you go next?
04:36:35 <Kevin L> How about a two burst Aurum?
04:36:35 <Maureen> I will go out for 7 hours I think.
04:36:44 <Maureen> That would be awesome Kevin
04:37:09 <Kevin L> Aurum Major to 100'?
04:37:11 <Maureen> we had an almost 10 hour interval after a 30min. duration not too long ago.
04:38:38 <Maureen> cannot imagine 100 ft, coming from that small hole
04:39:01 <Maureen> GO AURUM
04:39:10 <Ryan> a 100ft Aurum would be MAZING
04:39:21 <Maureen> It would be cruel if Morning was done right before everyone gets here
04:39:58 <Kevin L> Hey Ryan, my Brother-in-law at the AP plant loved your rocket.
04:40:31 <Ryan> :)
04:40:51 <Maureen> are your classes going to challenge you Ryan?
04:42:00 <Kevin L> Engineer classes a challenge? Piece of cake!
04:42:18 <Ryan> Probably not this semester... at least not intellectually maybe time wise a challenge :)
04:42:33 <Maureen> was hoping at least one would be.
04:42:58 <Ryan> Most of them are just fun :)
04:43:16 <Ryan> Calc could become challenging, but in a fun way
04:43:24 <Maureen> well at least you will have fun.
04:43:33 <Ryan> Maureen, did you see the rocket photo on FB?
04:43:39 <Maureen> yes, very cool
04:43:52 <Maureen> you have not launched it yet, right?
04:44:08 <Maureen> that was not a school project was it?
04:44:12 <Ryan> Nope, not until Sept 14 or 15
04:44:54 <Kevin L> You will be posting a video I hope.
04:44:58 <Ryan> Nope, just for fun, but it does count as an out-of-class-experience for me
04:45:42 <Maureen> do you get along with your roommate?
04:46:00 <Ryan> Yepp, lol hMaureen, is also an Aerospace Major
04:46:06 <Kevin L> Rockets are like geysers. Once they get in your blood, they just don't come out. I have been doing them on a smaller scale for 45 years!
04:46:22 <Ryan> "hMaureen" not sure where that came from!
04:46:32 <Ryan> Kevin, :)
04:46:35 <Maureen> that is good news. Always good to have a nice roomie.
04:47:07 <Ryan> Yepp!
04:47:53 <Kevin L> Really nice if they are taking the same or similar classes. Sometimes two minds can make homework much easier.
04:48:18 <Maureen> did the cam miss a Lion or is it done?
04:48:36 <Ryan> Unfortunately we only have two classes together
04:49:00 <Kevin L> I think there may have been 2 missed this morning but it seems to be done for now.
04:49:15 <Maureen> ty
04:51:33 <Kevin L> Cam will be on auto pilot for bus duty about 1335 today, but I don't see much going on anyway.
04:52:42 <Maureen> is vw gone?
04:53:01 <Kevin L> She is out today.
04:53:25 <Maureen> well thanks for driving.
04:53:37 <Kevin L> Next week there may be times that it will be unmanned since 3 of the camops will be on the good end of the cam.
04:55:44 <Maureen> fun for them!
04:56:08 <Maureen> are you going to make it Kevin?
04:56:42 <Kevin L> Nope. Goning to miss the park this year.
04:56:59 <Maureen> oh, folks said you were coming.
04:57:32 <Kevin L> I really wanted to, but my ear just didn't cooperate.
04:58:04 <Dave from B> You'll have to come for a whole week next year to make up fot it!
04:58:19 <Kevin L> I am going to try that Dave.
04:59:00 <Dave from B> We need to meet at some point...I may have to drop in on you in Vegas sometime.
04:59:57 <Kevin L> Right now it doesn't look like I am going anywhere.
05:02:13 <Dave from B> Hopefully, you will make some progress tomorrow, Kevin
05:02:44 <Kevin L> I hope so.
05:03:04 <Maureen> bummer, about your ear. Hope things go OK.
05:04:16 <Kevin L> If it doesn't clear by next year I will just bring cottonballs and Advil.
05:06:50 <Maureen> well, I will hope for clearing instead
05:23:05 <kc (working)> bhi ie
05:24:08 <Kevin L> With my luck BH will go while I am on bus duty
05:25:55 <Maureen> twice in 24 hours?
05:26:10 <Maureen> this would be twice in 12 hours
05:26:31 <Kevin L> I really don't expect it
05:26:47 <Maureen> more clouds too
05:27:00 <Ryan> They are moving fast!
05:27:05 <Kevin L> OF taking its time
05:30:25 <Maureen> waiting for you to go
05:31:00 <Kevin L> I think so
05:31:18 <Maureen> funny how that works
05:31:31 <Maureen> maybe not...
05:31:54 <Kevin L> It keeps teasing
05:32:08 <Maureen> crowd must be getting restless
05:36:24 <Kevin L> Well could someone post it on GT?
05:36:39 <Maureen> longest interval in a while
05:37:53 <Maureen> I do not know how to determine long or short
05:38:03 <Ryan> OF 1338
05:38:14 <Maureen> wow, I must be on delay
05:41:25 <Maureen> time for the gift shops...
05:41:56 <ynpvisitor82> Plume still domant?
05:42:28 <ynpvisitor82> Dormant
05:46:26 <Dave from B> Yes, not sighting of Plume since January
05:46:30 <Dave from B> no
05:46:59 <ynpvisitor82> thanks Dave from B,
05:48:47 <Maureen> there was a plume on logger data in Feb, I think, yet we may never get that posted on GT
05:49:07 <ynpvisitor82> TY Maureen
05:49:07 <Maureen> still, it has been less days than GT states
05:49:18 <Maureen> so was OF a long?
05:49:29 <Maureen> Dave will you post it for Kevin?
05:49:58 <Dave from B> Maureen, thanks for info re Plume
05:50:33 <Maureen> you are welcome Dave. WInter data may never be posted on GT at this rate.
05:50:55 <Dave from B> Will is back at school so he will have more free time now!:)
05:50:58 <Maureen> Will says he is busy, and Jake is going to do it, yet Jake does not do it, so....there is that.
05:51:16 <Maureen> Will says busy semester. I have begged for FTN data
05:51:27 <Maureen> will you post OF Dave?
05:51:34 <Dave from B> Sounds like they need more help
05:51:42 <Maureen> they do.
05:51:44 <Dave from B> Long or short, Maureen? or leave blank?
05:51:59 <Maureen> that is why I asked you. I have no idea what it was
05:52:00 <Ryan> Would be glad to help, but I am busy as well... I could work in the spare time I have though
05:52:05 <ynpvisitor82> I'll check capture if you don't have it.
05:52:19 <Maureen> so just the time I guess, is better than no time.
05:52:26 <Dave from B> ok
05:52:49 <Dave from B> Done
05:53:05 <Ryan> What kind of data do you want Maureen?
05:53:48 <ynpvisitor82> Long on OF
05:54:18 <ynpvisitor82> 1338-1341 OF
05:58:32 <Rich> I add comment to OF
05:59:24 <Dave from B> Thanks, Rich
06:00:51 <Kevin L> Thanks
06:03:38 <Rich> YW
06:05:20 <Kevin L> Daisy 1405
06:12:23 <ynpvisitor97> herrrrrrrrrrrr look at dem geysers
06:14:00 <Kevin L> At least that one figured out they were geysers.
06:14:08 <Dave from B> :D
06:26:37 <ynpvisitor1> Woo! Keeping the name again!
06:29:12 <Dave from B> Is that you, Ryan?
06:29:18 <ynpvisitor1> Yepp
06:30:23 <Rich> Prove it, lol
06:31:32 <Dave from B> 1 and 100 in a span of 7 days...pretty impressive, Ryan!
06:31:51 <ynpvisitor67> PEW PEW
06:32:59 <ynpvisitor52> computer illiterate question- I can't remember (or find) how to "pin" something in Firefox
06:33:09 <ynpvisitor52> any ideas?
06:33:50 <ynpvisitor52> whoa, never mind. I FOUND it
06:35:40 <ynpvisitor1> I think 67 and 97 are the same people
06:36:02 <ynpvisitor1> Yes Dave, it is lucky... brush it off on the geysers
06:36:06 <ynpvisitor1> Water at Aurum?
06:37:13 <Kevin L> Probably splashing really good
06:43:42 <Jenna> I may have to come visit you Kevin, the heat index is up to 102 with 44% humidity
06:44:21 <Kevin L> We aren't much different right now! But we do have air conditioning
06:45:06 <Jenna> ours is struggling at work today. going to have to remote start my car, otherwise it won't be cool by the time I get to the sitter.
06:45:17 <Jenna> then I guess I'll have to visit Dave :)
06:45:24 <Kevin L> We are 94 with 28% humidity. Not sure how that works out on the heat index.
06:45:59 <Jenna> not sure, I just use and it tells me
06:47:06 <Jenna> my streaming is very jumpy today
06:47:37 <Kevin L> Try hitting f5
06:48:14 <Jenna> better! thanks
06:53:32 <Dave from B> 90F in Blgs
06:54:04 <ynpvisitor1> WHAT was that!?
06:54:06 <ynpvisitor10> hitting F5 makes it cooler?! ;)
06:54:14 <ynpvisitor1> Did someone hit the tree?
06:54:17 <ynpvisitor1> Did you see that?
06:54:59 <Dave from B> I missed it
06:55:16 <ynpvisitor1> It was like a shock wave or something shook the tree
06:55:20 <ynpvisitor1> It was NOT wind shake
06:55:31 <ynpvisitor1> I honestly thought it was an earthquake
06:56:02 <ynpvisitor35> Maybe they found a ladder and are going to clean the housing so we can see?
06:56:14 <Kevin L> Should I check Giantess?
06:56:52 <ynpvisitor1> That was one BIG thump if it was Giantess
06:57:34 <Jenna> I will hit F5 all day if that's the case
06:59:05 <Kevin L> of 1458
07:27:59 <kc (working)> streaming jumpy here too, cut out a couple times too
07:30:16 <Dave from B> Did anyone check the seismo
07:30:19 <Dave from B> ?
07:30:33 <Kevin L> Didn't see anything.
07:31:12 <Dave from B> THanks
07:36:36 <Kevin L> May take a bit to update though
07:37:48 <Dave from B> Time for me to escape. Have a great evening everyone!
07:38:06 <Kevin L> Good to have you back Dave. Bye.
07:38:28 <Dave from B> Yes...thanks again for the tech service!
07:46:35 <craigmon99> Ahhhh finally off mobile device and can actually see the cam
07:49:56 <craigmon99> Apparently there are hot springs in MN. As well they are situated near rhyolite. Potentially creating geysers :O
07:54:14 <craigmon99> Even if they are just hot springs at least they are geothermal features near me
08:09:21 <Graham> hello
08:27:13 <alex (at work)> There are some in Virginia and Arkansas too, geothermal features
08:27:41 <Graham> hot springs in many states
08:34:53 <Graham> Daisy 1634ie
08:36:33 <kc (working)> bhi ie
08:37:03 <Graham> OF 1636
08:39:07 <ynpvisitor91> Thanks for the txt alert about beehive
08:41:15 <ge (working)> BH before heading home?
08:41:31 <craigmon99> Lets hope! Im seeing splashing in the cone
08:41:55 <Graham> i would plan on going home , not on seeing BH
08:41:58 <ge (working)> long time since I've seen one on the webcam
08:43:15 <Graham> big crowd there
08:43:48 <Graham> big splash there, maybe we are at the 18m mark now
08:44:07 <alex (at work)> there are tons of hot springs west of the mississippi/missouri rivers, but not many east
08:44:36 <craigmon99> Yeah, I just thought it was cool that they were there this entire time and I never knew
08:46:03 <craigmon99> I dont think this ones gonna go, there was a beehive at 2 AM
08:46:08 <ynpvisitor51> funny that the text said roughly a day, when it has been 14 hours...
08:46:18 <craigmon99> yeah...
08:47:07 <ynpvisitor51> yet I would be happy to see it.
08:51:10 <Graham> just 2 more workdays to go
08:51:39 <Graham> then its a 16 day weekend, yeah!
08:52:41 <Graham> figure i should sent an alert since theres been two eruptions now
08:53:32 <ynpvisitor51> I like the texts. GO BEEHIVE
08:53:49 <ge (working)> Graham, hope you see a trifecta at Fountain/morning
08:55:36 <Graham> thanks Gary, hoping to see Morning and chances for a dual have been good recently. Trifectsa odds are slim but not zero
08:55:44 <Graham> so glad we saw it in May
08:56:35 <ge (working)> Jewish holidays won't let me come next week. Gaze for me
08:57:03 <Graham> k :)
08:57:56 <ge (working)> Maybe BH will sort itself out while you are there
08:58:02 <Graham> if it sticks to Fri/Sat I will miss it, but after Trifecta the last interval was longer ... so maybe some activity left for Sun
08:58:46 <Graham> yeah, would be nice but i am not too bothered, i am not a BH diehard
08:58:58 <Graham> expect to spend most time in LGB again
08:59:11 <ge (working)> F & M?
09:00:04 <Graham> would be nice but long interval now, i assume its being checked
09:00:21 <ge (working)> Say hi to the other gazers for me.
09:00:23 <Graham> looks like BH is unlikely now
09:00:47 <ge (working)> 5 min more, then I'll pack up for home
09:01:28 <craigmon99> Should we count those as minor eruptions? the 20-30 foot bursts?
09:01:52 <Graham> nope
09:02:43 <craigmon99> Well im just thinking out loud but technically it is kind of erupting just without full force.
09:03:13 <Graham> its just splashing
09:03:29 <craigmon99> Give me your definition of eruption
09:04:04 <ge (working)> Major concerted pushing of water?
09:04:16 <craigmon99> lol
09:04:30 <Graham> the problem is that lots of geysers splash, don't count every OF preplay splash as an eruption
09:04:37 <Graham> of Giant splash as an eruption
09:04:51 <ge (working)> Could we say Giant was having a minor with its regular splashes?
09:05:09 <ge (working)> NO:0
09:05:36 <ge (working)> should be No :0
09:05:52 <Graham> nor Castle
09:05:53 <ge (working)> dran spelling---:)
09:06:04 <craigmon99> Yes but beehive doesn't consistently splash.
09:06:19 <Graham> it splashes a lot
09:06:30 <ge (working)> That's it--it splashes, not errupts
09:06:41 <Graham> its splashes have even been characterized
09:06:45 <craigmon99> Only when indicator is going according to my observations which could it wrong
09:07:03 <Graham> no, it splashes other times, we just don't watch it much then
09:07:13 <ge (working)> BYE all Have a safe trip, Graham
09:07:25 <craigmon99> Alright but can we agree that it does splash more with indy?
09:07:26 <Graham> thanks, see you
09:07:31 <craigmon99> and higher?
09:08:20 <Graham> yes it splashes more
09:08:23 <Graham> and sometimes erupts
09:08:40 <kc (working)> needs to generate a chain reaction to be an eruption, imo
09:10:56 <craigmon99> But, oculdn't a lion geyser minor be considered just splashing? What about steamboats minor eruptions? Im not saying that when ever a geyser splashes it is a minor im saying if thats the full extent of the activity and then stops such as beehives power surge whenever indy is on which doesnt lead to an eruption but there are bursts of 20+ feet, it should be considered minor
09:11:52 <Graham> i would classify steamboar minors as splashing
09:12:27 <Graham> just like Castle splashing
09:12:43 <craigmon99> But officially, they are classified as minor eruptions of steamboat
09:13:20 <craigmon99> And this is not ju7st like castle splashing because there is an obvious increase in energy in beehive whenever indy is on
09:14:41 <Graham> just like F&M minors when theres a vent erupting
09:16:01 <craigmon99> Im not sure I understand, I've never gotten the chance to see F&M
09:16:29 <Graham> Turban
09:16:44 <Graham> never seen any vents splash?
09:16:58 <craigmon99> Never been to the Fan and Mortar area.
09:17:15 <Graham> k, sell its different when it erupts
09:18:13 <craigmon99> So are you agreeing or disagreeing with me that it could possibly considered a minor eruption?
09:18:46 <Graham> i diasgree with calling it an eruption, think splashing is a much more appropriate term
09:19:29 <craigmon99> Alright then. Can we agree to disagree?
09:19:39 <kc (working)> the individual feature must be taken into account. depression just splashes but we all agree it is erupting. gonna be hard to find a blanket statement
09:20:08 <craigmon99> Just look at sponge geyser
09:22:14 <ynpvisitor59> For it to be concidered a minor ther should be data that would show some kind of trend. I am not sure BH has been studied enough to tell anything.
09:22:26 <Graham> i agree to disagree :)
09:22:55 <Graham> mainly ends up as to whats a useful term - preplay or splashing or minor?
09:23:15 <Graham> for Lion, Castle, and others Minor helps determine what it might do next
09:23:38 <Graham> splashing at BH doesn't really tell you anything much other than it didn't just erupt
09:23:41 <ynpvisitor59> One would have to figure out to lasify when BH erupts with no idicator.
09:24:12 <craigmon99> I want to be doing this kind of stuff when im old enough so I tend to do some brain storming about this stuff
09:25:02 <craigmon99> I should do a study on beehive. But only have the webcam to go by until next summer hopefully :P
09:25:18 <Graham> Minor is also used for statistical data collection , so having the community adopt a similar usage helps
09:25:25 <ynpvisitor59> Only way to find out is to get the date. I am not sure anyone is logging start and stop times or as much data as they do for OF.
09:26:32 <Graham> you can also get into whats a burst rather than a continuation of an eruption or series
09:27:01 <Graham> why are Giantess bursts not called a series?
09:27:21 <ynpvisitor59> Good question
09:28:09 <Graham> or F&M bursts could be a series of minors after the Major
09:31:01 <Graham> Turban
09:31:21 <Graham> Grand 1731
09:41:07 <Graham> 2
09:41:18 <ynpvisitor33> nice
09:43:54 <Graham> long second
09:45:20 <ynpvisitor33> for a long duration overall
09:45:28 <Graham> 13m......can we get another?
09:46:22 <ynpvisitor19> is it raining?
09:46:46 <Graham> no umbrellas
09:46:58 <ynpvisitor19> odd sky
09:48:50 <Graham> that cleared the boardwalk, think the rain arrived :)
09:58:49 <Graham> OF 1758
10:18:42 <Graham> Aurum 1818ie I think
10:23:53 <Graham> Sawmill is off
10:26:25 <Graham> Lion 1826ie Ini
10:53:29 <Graham> stepping away, bbs
10:59:09 <Mara> looks like it's rather humid in the park
11:04:13 <Mara> hi Diane
11:04:25 <Diane> Hello.
11:04:40 <Diane> Haven't look at Geyser times. Are we expecting anything?
11:05:32 <Mara> uh, Daisy... eventually, and hopefully another Lion in 20-30 minutes
11:05:42 <Diane> ty
11:29:13 <ynpvisitor76> Indicator?
11:30:51 <ynpvisitor76> Perhaps not
11:31:13 <ynpvisitor91> Little cub started up.
11:36:12 <Graham> OF 1935
11:36:27 <Diane> Whoa. That's pretty.
11:36:31 <Mara> very fluffy
11:36:47 <ynpvisitor91> A Beautiful eruption.
11:36:55 <craigmon99> Very nice old faithful
11:36:57 <Jenna> wow
11:36:58 <Graham> unusual steam
11:37:28 <ynpvisitor84> very pretty
11:38:48 <Graham> Lion 1938
11:38:59 <Diane> Wow, good eye!
11:39:38 <craigmon99> Now all we need is giantess!
11:39:55 <Graham> still waiting on Daisy i think
11:40:06 <Mara> save that for tomorrow when I'm actually in the park :)
11:40:32 <ynpvisitor84> no bee first then giantess or giantess would get both so my vote is with giantess
11:40:48 <Jenna> so is everyone going to the park this weekend?
11:41:00 <ynpvisitor91> I would not mind a Giantess over beehive. I wish I was.
11:41:03 <Graham> yes
11:41:15 <Diane> Yes yes yes. We are actually going to get to come, although we won't get there until Sunday.
11:41:16 <Graham> gonna shut down the chat room
11:41:25 <Jenna> no! lol
11:41:42 <Jenna> someone has to watch you guys
11:42:02 <Jenna> my parents get there tomorrow evening
11:42:04 <Graham> ok, we will leave the cam on so you can watch Giantess too
11:42:32 <Jenna> thanks :)
11:42:47 <Graham> Daisy 1942
11:43:48 <Graham> longest single interval on GT
11:44:27 <Graham> range is only 42min tho, so nice grouping
11:50:16 <ynpvisitor33> quite a daisy streak today
11:50:29 <Graham> Riverside 1950ie
11:50:33 <ynpvisitor52> ,,
11:59:26 <Graham> Castle 0939ns
11:59:34 <Graham> or 1959ns
12:04:03 <Kevin L> Cam may be on OF preset a lot next week.
12:04:14 <craigmon99> what is this again? Deppression?
12:04:19 <Jenna> since apparently I'm the only one going to be here? :)
12:04:30 <Graham> Dwarf erupting but Dep just steaming
12:05:44 <Graham> we will all wave Jenna
12:09:04 <Jenna> ok good :)
12:09:46 <Graham> and if you are nice to him, Kevin may move the cam from time to time
12:09:59 <Jenna> I will try
12:10:42 <Kevin L> Hey, this is the OF cam. Shouldn't it be pointed at OF?
12:10:43 <Jenna> I haven't seen water at Castle for quite awhile
12:10:55 <Jenna> much better?
12:11:13 <Graham> there yoiu go Kevin
12:11:29 <Kevin L> Now remember that!
12:11:46 <Graham> good job nobody here knows which one is OF
12:14:07 <Graham> BHI
12:14:30 <Kevin L> All right! It is going about once a day now, right?
12:14:54 <Graham> BHI is going more than that
12:17:10 <Graham> already had out BH for today
12:17:29 <Graham> will shock everyone if it has 2 eruptions in one day
12:20:12 <Graham> nice BH eruption
12:20:26 <Graham> or is this OF?
12:20:53 <craigmon99> Castle
12:20:56 <Jenna> there's more than one?
12:22:38 <Graham> all the others do is called splashing Jenna :)
12:22:50 <Jenna> ah thanks for the clarification :)
12:22:56 <Graham> OF is the one that erupts
12:23:08 <Jenna> I'm obviously not qualified to watch the cam while you guys are gone
12:23:38 <Graham> thats fine, you can call any eruptions you want, nobody else will be here to read it
12:24:01 <Jenna> haha true
12:24:15 <craigmon99> Another beehive "minor"
12:24:19 <Jenna> I can totally get someone's hopes up that hasn't read this
12:24:40 <Jenna> or things like Anenome major
12:24:59 <Graham> that should get Micah's attention
12:25:04 <Jenna> lol
12:26:40 <Jenna> while I am jealous, I hope you guys have great weather and lots of eruptions
12:28:11 <Graham> thanks Jenna
12:29:13 <Jenna> at least my parents won't have to camp out by BH for 6 hours this time
12:29:35 <Graham> might have to wait longer
12:30:41 <Jenna> at least their toes won't go numb
12:32:09 <Graham> Dep
12:34:07 <Kevin L> 6 days maybe.
12:34:28 <Jenna> they'll be there that long I believe
12:35:16 <Graham> hope they like watching BHI instead
12:35:38 <Jenna> I don't think dad will be too interested
12:41:34 <Graham> goodnight from here
12:42:05 <Kevin L> I stll see steam
12:44:26 <ynpvisitor33> Lion?
12:44:58 <ynpvisitor33> yep, Lion 2044ie
12:47:20 <Jenna> that's it for me, goodnight
