00:48:13 <Kent> YVO back at Norris and Whirligig doing good things. An eight Whirligig day would be a good thing.
01:05:19 <ynpvisitor81> Anemone ie
01:23:27 <Dave fom B> Good morning everyone!
01:26:31 <ynpvisitor81> Plate ie ?
01:27:34 <ynpvisitor81> Hi Dave
01:36:29 <Dave fom B> Morning Kevin
01:37:00 <Dave fom B> Hopefully, you kept your car upright yesterday...better than Kyle
01:38:04 <Kevin L> That was an ugly race for sure.
01:38:27 <Dave fom B> Didn't get a chance to see it but read the paper this morning
01:39:49 <Kevin L> It wasn't really worth watching. The one I am really looking forward to is the truck race on the 23rd.
01:41:21 <Kevin L> It was nice to see the 43 in victory lane. It was 30 years ago that Richard Petty won his 200th race. Ronald Reagan was at the race to boot.
01:42:52 <CO Dave> Kevin, trucks on dirt are excellent for sure.
01:44:05 <Kevin L> I would love to see the nationwide try it.
01:46:46 <CO Dave> N'wide was pretty fun to watch at Road America in the rain a couple weeks ago.
01:49:38 <Dave fom B> It would be nice to get another short BH
01:50:09 <ynpvisitor77> keep an eue on Daisy today
01:50:17 <ynpvisitor77> eue = eye
01:50:47 <Dave fom B> I saw Ryan's FB post
01:52:16 <ynpvisitor81> What is going on with Daisy?
02:00:51 <ynpvisitor81> Whatever is going on with Daisy, shouldn't a note be posted to GT or something? O dpm
02:01:25 <ynpvisitor81> I don't know that Ryan's FB page is a good record of something happening.
02:01:41 <Dave fom B> I'm not sure they know what happened yet
02:01:50 <ynpvisitor75> They THINK it was Daisy. Right now all that was observed was a large steam cloud down basin!!!!!!
02:02:03 <ynpvisitor81> Is it acting different? What?
02:02:04 <Dave fom B> They saw a strange cloud in that area approx 60-90 minutes after a reported Daisy
02:02:30 <ynpvisitor81> As in they think Splendid may have erupted?
02:02:58 <ynpvisitor77> no
02:03:11 <ynpvisitor81> Has anybody checked video capture from the time?
02:03:19 <ynpvisitor54> They need to STOP guessing from the parking lot!
02:03:32 <ynpvisitor81> Yes.
02:03:57 <ynpvisitor54> If it was Daisy, there is a logger on it!
02:04:11 <Dave fom B> They went to Daisy to investigate
02:04:13 <ynpvisitor75> No, they DON'T think Splendid erupted! Have to wait to see what the E download says. At this point it was a large steam cloud down basin seen from somepoint around OF
02:04:14 <ynpvisitor54> Easily verifiable
02:04:51 <ynpvisitor54> They were driving into lower hams!
02:05:12 <ynpvisitor75> They might have been driving into the cabins!
02:05:22 <ynpvisitor81> In other words, they don't know what they saw, if anything, and they are getting all excited about it. :P
02:05:32 <ynpvisitor75> Different view from each vantage point
02:05:39 <ynpvisitor54> They live behind lower hams
02:06:29 <ynpvisitor54> Could have even been BANK that time of night. Things get steamy
02:06:51 <ynpvisitor75> Could have been dropping Micah off at work ... who knows! Time will tell!
02:08:11 <ynpvisitor77> Pyramid major. :D :D
02:08:39 <kc (working)> around what time?
02:08:51 <Dave fom B> 2200, I believe
02:09:49 <ynpvisitor75> G > #77!
02:12:58 <ynpvisitor54> If it was not Daisy we will never know what it was
02:15:11 <Dave fom B> Big crowd at Of for this early in the day
02:15:49 <ynpvisitor77> so if it was, keep an eye on Daisy intervals today.
02:17:49 <ynpvisitor81> All Daisy times from yesterday were from the wc. Hopefully we will be able to see it most of the time.
02:19:16 <Dave fom B> Nobody around the basin to enter times or is internet service down?
02:19:28 <ynpvisitor54> Daisy E times are up, so the VEC has the answer
02:20:23 <ynpvisitor81> Nothing around 2200 that I am seeing there.
02:20:58 <ynpvisitor54> Nothing unusual at all!
02:21:17 <ynpvisitor81> Look pretty consistent to me.
02:21:22 <ynpvisitor81> OF
02:21:25 <Kevin L> of 0921ie
02:21:30 <ynpvisitor54> I would bet it was Bank steam.
02:22:13 <Dave fom B> Sure looks like a normal Daisy night per downloads
02:23:16 <ynpvisitor77> I'll have to read it again, but I think they said it probably wasn't Daisy, just not sure what it was
02:23:45 <Dave fom B> ..
02:24:50 <ynpvisitor54> They decided on Daisy
02:25:07 <ynpvisitor77> thx
02:25:32 <ynpvisitor81> In other words it was a wild ass guess that went astray.
02:26:25 <ynpvisitor54> Ryan loves posting
02:27:14 <ynpvisitor54> A steam cloud in upper basin, who would have guessed?
02:28:07 <ynpvisitor81> :D
02:32:03 <CO Dave> Let's not slag on the boys too much - they have taken the initiative to be there and provide a lot of information.
02:32:34 <ynpvisitor81> Daisy
02:32:49 <ynpvisitor77> exercise is good for them! Glad they went to investigate
02:39:47 <kc (working)> nothing unusual on capture. only big steam cloud around that time was grand
02:41:56 <ynpvisitor81> Thank you for checking kc.
02:42:57 <kc (working)> anytime
02:44:11 <ynpvisitor55> One person posting from Riverside. I think most of the gazers there now do not post to GT.
02:44:31 <ynpvisitor55> Or not from their phones.
02:44:35 <ynpvisitor81> Very few basin times posted yesterday.
02:45:13 <ynpvisitor55> Mike Lang posted a few when he got home
02:45:29 <ynpvisitor55> Sunday
02:47:07 <Dave fom B> Morning Jenna
02:48:55 <Dave fom B> During my visit, internet worked until about 10 am and then was overloaded until after 1700
02:49:19 <Jenna> morning Dave
02:49:29 <Jenna> frustrating and sad at the same time
02:52:35 <Dave fom B> That is why I didn't talk much or post when I visited. It was easier just to text people
02:53:23 <Jenna> that's ok
02:53:31 <Jenna> you can talk to us anytime when you're in Billings
02:53:49 <Paul L.> what we looking at?
02:54:07 <ynpvisitor81> Overlook above GH.
02:54:20 <ynpvisitor81> Observation point.
02:54:49 <Paul L.> oh ok
02:55:19 <ynpvisitor81> Nice walk, beautiful views from up there.
02:55:49 <Paul L.> I plan on going up there
02:56:06 <Dave fom B> ..
02:58:22 <Dave fom B> Hi, Mara
02:58:33 <Mara> hey Dave
03:09:31 <Dave fom B> Hi, Micah
03:09:47 <ynpvisitor98> hi
03:17:43 <Micah> So im here to clear some things up
03:18:09 <ynpvisitor98> what is going on>
03:19:41 <Micah> Well first off the condescending comments by several people were compketely uncalled for.
03:21:38 <Micah> I dont care if we reported the giant platform exoloding, 54 specifically, you stepped out of line.
03:21:44 <Micah> Anyways.....
03:22:17 <Andrew> those were uncalled for but, any news from the E times?
03:22:47 <Micah> Not daisy
03:23:15 <Andrew> where were you guys when the plume was seen?
03:23:34 <Andrew> well will
03:23:37 <Andrew> and ryan
03:23:50 <Micah> Driving into lower hams
03:23:57 <Micah> I was at castle
03:24:14 <Andrew> ok, and it was definatly from the daisy area?
03:24:16 <Micah> By the time i sprinted up to crested, it was over.
03:24:55 <Micah> But i can confirm it was not oblong, which looked nowhere near post e
03:25:26 <Micah> Grotto was not big enough to induce the panic the lads had
03:25:56 <Andrew> and daisy was confirmed seen again at 2300ish so thats interesting.
03:25:56 <Micah> Grand had ended 10 minutes earlier
03:26:15 <Micah> We checked link, not link.
03:26:21 <Micah> Not east sentinel
03:26:51 <Andrew> not the rockpike?
03:27:11 <Micah> Not f&m (the guys thoight it was at first, which is what started their panic)
03:27:59 <Dave fom B> What was the temp at 200? Humidity?
03:28:03 <Dave fom B> brb
03:28:22 <Dave fom B> 2200 Conditions...
03:28:37 <Dave fom B> 65F with 44% Humidity
03:28:52 <Dave fom B> How about Artemesia?
03:28:53 <Andrew> alright and now its a mystery steam cloud
03:29:44 <Micah> Whatever it was, it was very brief, and big enough to cause will to fly into lower
03:30:20 <Micah> Too short for artemesia.
03:30:44 <ynpvisitor77> how about a super boil from Black Sand?
03:30:51 <Andrew> was it ie?
03:31:05 <Andrew> 77 thats a very good idea
03:31:08 <Micah> Not ie
03:31:29 <Micah> And bkack sand woukdnt create a plume that big
03:31:38 <ynpvisitor77> go look for some high wash marks
03:32:11 <Micah> I will check black sand tonight after work
03:32:12 <Andrew> certainly cant be bad to do that
03:32:33 <Micah> But weve ruled out everything.
03:32:42 <Micah> So....mystery.
03:33:55 <ynpvisitor77> thanks Micah
03:33:56 <Micah> Anyway....54, once again, dont do that again. And now im off to work
03:34:20 <Dave fom B> Thanks, Micah
03:34:28 <Dave fom B> I missed you when I was in your area
03:34:39 <Mara> yay mysteries~
03:40:27 <Dave fom B> Aurum 1040ie

03:40:29 <Dave fom B> ..
03:40:49 <kc (working)> nice
03:41:03 <Jenna> can I go home Dave?
03:41:22 <Dave fom B> Depends on how good of a boss you have.
03:42:02 <kc (working)> stream seems very choppy today, even more than usual
03:42:31 <Kevin L> Controls are only going at 3.3 where 5.3 is normal.
03:43:26 <Kevin L> Nice of Aurum to go before OF covered it.
03:53:03 <Paul L.> I have 10 more days to go Dave.
03:59:22 <Kevin L> Turban?
03:59:55 <ynpvisitor90> Grand
04:00:59 <Kevin L> Don't think Grand.
04:01:05 <Craig> Hello all!
04:01:14 <Kevin L> Hi

04:08:47 <Kevin L> left click over your current name on the entry line.
04:09:50 <Paul L.> I have 10 more days Craig
04:09:57 <Mara> Evidently nobody told F&M that I left, because it hasn't erupted yet.
04:16:47 <Kevin L> We have a winner!!!!!
04:16:53 <Kevin L> BHI 1116 ie
04:16:54 <Dave fom B> Yippeee

04:17:09 <Eric> Thank you...
04:17:24 <Mara> decent interval is decent
04:17:55 <Eric> and Hello everyone.
04:18:29 <Mara> good day to you
04:18:39 <Eric> Thanks Mara :-)
04:21:24 <Dave fom B> ..
04:22:11 <Maureen> Thanks for text
04:22:35 <Mel> I enjoyed he cool down pour from beehive on the fourth of july I got wet but it was refreshing
04:22:50 <Eric> awesome :-)
04:22:52 <Mara> Unfortunately I was never able to get a time lapse of people accumulating on the boardwalk after a BHI call. Sadface.
04:23:14 <Eric> Ohh, that would be super cool.
04:23:35 <Mara> Maybe I'll bribe Will to do it for me. xD
04:24:12 <Maureen> Hot enough in Billings Dave from B?
04:24:59 <Dave fom B> Hi, Maureen. Yesa, it is. My 10 day old grass is not liking the heat at all.
04:25:06 <Kevin L> Hot in Billings? Surely you jest.
04:25:14 <ynpvisitor54> Hey Kevin
04:25:27 <ynpvisitor54> drat about your grass Dave, hope it survives OK
04:26:02 <Mara> It's hot in general. Rarely saw below 90 as we drove east yesterday.
04:26:35 <Dave fom B> The hose and I have been busy hitting the dry spots
04:26:49 <Maureen> You saw a night Fountain Mara?
04:26:52 <Dave fom B> Wait...that didn't sound right
04:27:09 <Maureen> Ha ha
04:27:10 <Eric> hahaha
04:27:11 <Mel> Well beehive should be close the indicator has been only 10-15 minutes this year
04:27:38 <Eric> It's trying, some decent splashes.
04:28:01 <Maureen> Eric is there?
04:28:19 <Eric> No, this Eric is not :-(
04:28:24 <Mel> We might get to see some folks get wet if the wind changes direction like it did on the 4th of July
04:28:40 <Mara> I think about halfway into my trip I did, Maureen.
04:28:41 <Maureen> Huge crowd
04:29:08 <Mel> come on beehive do your stuff!
04:29:29 <Eric> It's waiting for BW to fill to capacity
04:29:29 <Maureen> You mentioned it in your FB post yet no one posted it to GT
04:30:07 <Maureen> Dave are you watering at night?
04:30:32 <Mara> I think it's on GT.
04:31:01 <Eric> BH 1130
04:31:01 <ynpvisitor81> I have heard that is a common complaint amongst men as they age Maureen.
04:31:02 <Maureen> I could not find it Mara
04:31:03 <Mel> beehive 1131
04:31:18 <lt> haha, 81
04:31:34 <Dave fom B> Maureen, with our sandy soil, we are watering twice a day every day. Big watering is at 5 am
04:32:30 <Maureen> Good Dave. Bee is not getting enough folks wet!
04:32:43 <Eric> Sure is pretty!
04:32:59 <Eric> Nice framing camop.
04:33:15 <Mara> Needs a lot more getting wet!
04:33:34 <Maureen> What was this interval?
04:34:17 <Dave fom B> 1758? on interval
04:34:56 <Maureen> Ty
04:35:41 <Maureen> Grand next?
04:35:55 <Dave fom B> Should be
04:36:09 <Eric> LC next :-)
04:36:19 <Eric> Look at it go :-P
04:36:47 <Mara> back to near 30m intervals perhaps
04:37:27 <Dave fom B> I'd be high tailing it to Grand
04:39:07 <Maureen> Back to work. Have good days all.
04:39:27 <Maureen> BH is not on GT yet
04:39:29 <Mel> on the 4th grand erupted 17 min after beehive
04:39:29 <Dave fom B> Same to you, Maureen!
04:39:34 <Dave fom B> It is now
04:39:57 <Maureen> From the basin even!
04:40:40 <Eric> as it should be with that big of a crowd :-)
04:42:45 <Tammy> Good morning everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
04:43:12 <Tammy> I'm not sure who told me about the text group last week, but a big thank you! Because of that, I've seen Beehive go off three days in a row. Yippee!
04:43:29 <Kevin L> Great.
04:43:43 <Eric> Nice Tammy, good morning.
04:43:57 <Kevin L> I was hoping you didn't just miss it.
04:44:28 <Tammy> I've had that happen before, but not today. What a beautiful eruption it was too.
04:45:04 <Kevin L> It was one of the best I have ever seen on the cam.
04:46:23 <ynpvisitor72> how do you get into the text group?
04:46:50 <Tammy> Sign up through this link:
04:47:18 <Eric> Ya, the link is also on the geyser times resources tab.
04:47:54 <ynpvisitor72> thanks
04:48:39 <Mara> also you must make a sacrifice to the geyser gods by forgoing one meal and staring at a hole for five hours
04:49:18 <Eric> Not touching that one mara :-P
04:49:41 <Kevin L> I was hoping for some Turban times on GT.
04:49:51 <Betty> hello all
04:49:52 <Eric> Everyone was at BH
04:49:55 <Eric> Hey Betty
04:50:00 <Kevin L> Evening Betty.
04:50:05 <Eric> We should get Turban times soon
04:50:12 <Tammy> Good morning, Betty!
04:50:39 <Eric> Turban
04:50:40 <Betty> Evening is better ;-)
04:50:52 <Eric> There you go Kevin :-)
04:51:00 <Eric> 1150
04:51:26 <Kevin L> That will work
04:51:43 <Eric> At least a good start
04:51:50 <Betty> So I see a soon Grand for missing a BH....
04:52:04 <Eric> Hopefully...
04:52:49 <Dave fom B> Hi, Betty
04:53:40 <Betty> Hi Eric, Hi Kevin L , Hi Tammy and Hi Dave from B :-D
04:55:21 <Kevin L> Daisy 1155
04:55:27 <Betty> yep
04:56:37 <Eric> Woohoo, we are getting the full basin solute this morning :-)
04:56:54 <Eric> BH, Daisy, and hopefully Grand next
04:57:07 <Tammy> So exciting!
04:57:21 <Eric> It will be a pretty boring afternoon :-)
04:58:01 <Mara> no afternoon is boring when LC erupts every half hour :D
04:58:53 <Betty> that is correct, even small things can make you happy in wonderland
04:59:27 <Eric> ok, LC is not very exciting from webcam :-(
05:00:19 <Mara> shhhhhhh
05:00:25 <Mara> don't let it know that
05:00:34 <Betty> haha
05:00:41 <Jenna> Does anyone have suggestions for hikes in the Salt Lake/Ogden/Logan area?
05:00:57 <Eric> ohh, sorry. I will use my tags from now on :-D
05:01:03 <Tammy> How long and how difficult of hikes?
05:01:19 <Jenna> a couple hours
05:01:29 <Jenna> can be medium-high on difficulty
05:01:53 <Dave fom B> Jenna, a hike to Crown Burger is always a good one!:)
05:02:03 <Tammy> Let me check with some of my more hiking adventurous friends and see what suggestions I can offer. All of the canyons are full of hikes--it's just a matter of what works best for you.
05:02:16 <Dave fom B> Jenna, how dare you go somewhere besides YNP!:D
05:02:48 <Tammy> I've heard Kings Peak up Millcreek Canyon is a good one and not too hard. A friend suggested it to me a week ago, but I haven't had time to try it yet.
05:03:30 <Tammy> It has a great view of the entire SL Valley from what I understand and isn't quite as difficult as Olympus Peak.
05:03:41 <Kevin L> Tipanogos cave north of Provo could be fun.
05:04:33 <Kevin L> Don't forget there is a train at Heber City and you have to get a Crown Burger.
05:06:28 <Tammy> Jenna, perhaps this will help:
05:06:37 <Tammy> It has a ton of different hike suggestions.
05:07:27 <Jenna> haha it's not for me Dave!
05:07:47 <Jenna> My friend had mentioned Olympus
05:09:00 <Jenna> I will have to write this stuff down if I ever do go though
05:09:48 <Dave fom B> Jenna, are you sure you don't want to be a travel agent?
05:10:00 <Jenna> I have thought about it!
05:10:19 <Mara> Turban?
05:10:28 <Jenna> get paid to spend hours on trip advisor? sounds good!
05:11:04 <Eric> 20 minute interval...good.
05:11:21 <Eric> lot of steam coming from the back too
05:11:32 <Eric> oblong?
05:14:05 <Kevin L> Lack of steam makes it hard to see.
05:31:51 <Kevin L> OF 1231
05:33:39 <Kevin L> Short
05:34:02 <Candide> Looks like it
05:34:39 <Eric> Who you callin short?
05:34:50 <Eric> ;-)
05:37:04 <Dave fom B> LC is short
05:38:47 <Mara> LC is taller than you :p
05:39:18 <Dave fom B> haha, you're right, Mara!:)
05:40:26 <Mara> LC 1240 ns
05:41:29 <Eric> where is our Turban steam?
05:46:19 <Kevin L> I haven't seen any for a while.
05:50:31 <Ryan> Now
05:50:57 <Betty> Hey Ryan :-)
05:51:19 <Ryan> I am here to publicly defend myself after being told, at work, about being publicly ridiculed by 54, and 81.
05:51:49 <Dave fom B> Hi, Ryan
05:52:06 <Ryan> Hi Dave and Betty
05:52:18 <Ryan> I will start with my Facebook post to clear up some errors being told:
05:52:35 <Ryan> At 2200 Will Boekel and I pulled into the OF Area and saw large, forceful steam cloud from the Daisy area about 90mins after daisy (Daisy was about 2020). Upon investigation (with Micah Kipple) we ruled out: Grand, Oblong, Giant Group, Purple Pools, Grotto (someone was watching it), Link, F&M (entering a cycle), East Sentinel, and Riverside.
05:52:44 <Ryan> The Daisy Group looked like Daisy had recently (within 30-45mins) erupted. Daisy was refilling and appeared to be boiling. Based on our line of sight we think Daisy may have pulled a 90min interval. We do NOT think it was Splendid.
05:52:50 <Ryan> This column was angled towards downbasin and was forceful, at least 50ft of sustained jetting with a massive steam plume. Think Grand sized steam plume. Investigating more in the morning.
05:53:08 <Ryan> Note: I specifically said I did NOT think it was Splendid.
05:53:19 <Ryan> This was NOT seen from the Hams it was seen from the interchange.
05:53:35 <Ryan> and I said we would do MORE investigating in the morning.
05:53:45 <Ryan> This was not a "Crazy ass guess that wetn astray"
05:54:01 <Ryan> This was a freaking observation that made will go into the parking lot at 50mph.
05:54:43 <Ryan> I understand how it looks having a newbie say fantastic things. But unless someone didnt notice my Lakeshore and Link reports happened to be correct (Lakeshore is on video).
05:55:18 <Ryan> we SAW something. We do NOT know what it was.
05:55:23 <Eric> Ryan...relax...there are some serious crumugeons on this chat, that are best ignored.
05:55:43 <Ryan> Without a doubt we saw a Grand sized plume from the Daisy line-of-sight.
05:55:47 <Eric> and Hello :-)
05:56:09 <Ryan> Eric, this one curmudgeon has been publicly doing this to me for months for no reason at all. They have done it privately to Will.
05:56:14 <Paul L.> Hi Eric
05:56:22 <Ryan> Unlike Will and Micah I will stand up and say enough is freaking enough.
05:56:24 <Eric> Hi Paul
05:56:34 <Paul L.> oh and Ryan I will be there in 10 days. woot woot
05:56:42 <Ryan> I am about ready to stop posting observations because I get ridiculed for it.
05:56:52 <Ryan> Hi Paul and Eric, Paul cant wait to see you!
05:57:02 <Eric> If they don't have the curtesy to put there name up, they are not worth arguing with in my book.
05:57:11 <Paul L.> Ya i'm going to try to find you
05:57:22 <Ryan> I could say OF broke 175ft (which it DID yesterday) and be told that I am wrong.
05:57:26 <Paul L.> stil workng at the snow lodge?
05:57:37 <Mara> curmudgeon sounds like a cookie
05:57:41 <Mara> can we eat them?
05:57:43 <Ryan> I am done having Micah or someone else step in. I am tired of sitting and taking it. I am done.
05:58:12 <Eric> Well, I enjoy your energy and posts...if that makes any difference.
05:58:47 <Dave fom B> Yes, your posts on FB are my favorites. It helps me stay in touch with my home away from home.
05:58:59 <Ryan> Seriously, they are acting like middle schoolers, get over the cliquishness and maye for once try to work with the new people coming in so that if they DO see something ordinary and think its extraodinary they can be corrected without making them fell like idiots.
05:59:20 <Ryan> Thank God I am going backpacking tomorrow, this is driving me insane.
05:59:25 <Paul L.> Can I make a sugestion Ryan?
05:59:28 <Ryan> Thanks, Dave and Eric, I appreciate that.
05:59:30 <Ryan> Sure.
05:59:45 <Paul L.> Calm down.
05:59:56 <Ryan> I also appreciate those who stood up for me this morning.
06:00:22 <Paul L.> well I did not see what happen but relax
06:00:32 <Ryan> Paul, I have been trying for a month and a half now. This person in particular has pushed me to my limits. Which is usually a bit.
06:01:20 <Dave fom B> Ryan, how do you know it is the same person, since they are "just" a number?
06:01:40 <Paul L.> Then be done but do it with class. be calm about it. thats all i'm saying
06:02:07 <Ryan> because this person has done this to me in Facebook messages. I recognize the grammar, and tone. Will, micah, Mara, and I all recognize it. this personal has also said things to me about Will with the same format.
06:02:20 <Kevin L> After being a construction inspector for 30 years I learned that the only thing getting upset will do for you is give YOU ulcers and a heart attack. Don't worry about things that don't matter.
06:03:00 <Ryan> Paul, this person has personally insulted me with words I prefer not to repeat (it would reveal the person if I said them), I can not take it sitting down anymore.
06:03:09 <Eric> thumbs up to Kevin's comment. I have also had words with this person...I know who your talking about.
06:03:45 <Ryan> Anyways, I mainly came to clear up what we saw, and to reiterate that until evidence shows me otherwise I stand by what Will and I saw.
06:04:14 <Dave fom B> Ryan, we do apprecaite all your efforts. Keep up the good work.
06:04:16 <Ryan> We checked everything from Fantail to Grand, nothing out of the ordinary. I have theories but God forbid I say them out loud....
06:04:37 <Eric> Sounds good, report observations and collect data :-)
06:04:37 <Paul L.> I understand Ryan. I'm not saying you wrong being upset. I just saying calm down a bit. Try not to let it bother you.
06:04:44 <Ryan> ...Splendid minor angled away from the BW is one of them (oops, better start poking fun at me and my crazy ass guesses ;) )
06:05:12 <Dave fom B> haha
06:05:25 <Mel> I have been casually watching the geysers for twenty five years and i would rather hear, reaed or see something than nothing at all and we all are human only the geysers are perfect!
06:05:28 <Ryan> Observations last night showed Daisy refilling, Splendid down slightly and boiling and water EVERYWHERE in the group. Like as if Daisy had just erupted.
06:05:33 <Mara> Bonita major
06:05:36 <Mara> totes
06:05:40 <Paul L.> Could be worse. you could type like Dave abd I. lol
06:05:45 <Ryan> Pyramid to 50ft!
06:05:57 <Dave fom B> Ryan, has anyone been paying attention to the area today?
06:06:27 <Ryan> Not that I know of, I dont think anyone believes us (like Lakeshore and Link)
06:08:37 <Ryan> We thought it was F&M which is how Will and I got there from the interchange to F&M in less than 7 minutes.
06:08:53 <Kevin L> Every once in a while Spa can do a very high eruption. I was standing by Grotto when it went well over 50'.
06:09:19 <Ryan> No, someone was watching the Grotto Group, it wasn't Spa.
06:09:30 <Ryan> I wish it was something simple because I want to know what happened.
06:10:30 <Dave fom B> Ryan, how long did you see the cloud?
06:11:00 <Ryan> Less than 60s.
06:11:08 <Ryan> It was WAY ie when we saw it.
06:11:24 <Dave fom B> That was my next question...thanks
06:11:32 <CO Dave> Ryan, ignore the idiots. This is all observational and data collecting. If there had been corraborating electronic evidence, what you saw and reported would have been important. As it is, it still could be. Observation and data are important; you go back and make sense of it later.
06:11:44 <Ryan> Side note: To the person in question here, I just found out it WAS you. I have not mentioned your, nor will I. Just letting you know that.
06:11:58 <Ryan> Thanks, CO Dave.
06:12:39 <CO Dave> I fully believe you saw something unusual and you are doing the best to figure it out. You guys know this area and the behavior very well.
06:13:32 <Ryan> We don knwo the behaviors as well as I would like. But we know where we saw it.
06:16:22 <Ryan> I apologize if I have made myself look like an ass at all. I was shown this convo this morning, at work, and was shaking with anger.
06:17:29 <Kevin L> Looks like some action out of Lion.
06:17:43 <Dave fom B> where is Grand?
06:17:52 <Dave fom B> No smart alleck answer, Kevin!:)
06:17:59 <Mara> by Turban
06:18:08 <Kevin L> Just past Sawmill toward Oblong.
06:18:08 <Dave fom B> :D
06:18:21 <Eric> There we go
06:18:34 <Dave fom B> ??
06:19:03 <Kevin L> You knew it was coming Dave, but you didn't expect a double prong attack!
06:19:07 <Eric> Kevin's smart alleck remark :-P
06:20:05 <Dave fom B> Why am I such an easy target?:)
06:20:43 <Kevin L> You do provide a great deal of comic relief Dave.
06:21:25 <Eric> Because your super nice Dave!
06:21:29 <Dave fom B> You should see my desk. I need a match
06:21:48 <Mara> Like, fire match?
06:21:52 <Dave fom B> I guess I'm going to have homework tonight
06:22:04 <Mara> Cause I got matches...
06:22:06 <Dave fom B> Yes, Mara
06:22:21 <Kevin L> Torch is quicker.
06:22:29 <Eric> I'm surprised we have not had in basin Turban times.
06:22:51 <Kevin L> I was sure hoping for some.
06:23:20 <Dave fom B> Ryan, is this your Union Falls trip?
06:24:02 <ynpvisitor100> turban
06:24:58 <Kevin L> Almost forgot OF was a short.
06:25:42 <Kevin L> Gee, cool outside today. Hasn't even hit 100!
06:25:58 <Eric> Wow...break out a sweater kevin.
06:26:00 <Dave fom B> Does that mean your AC is off?
06:26:55 <Kevin L> AT least I can go outside.
06:32:49 <Mara> Nice thunderheads to the north. Hoping they stay away.
06:34:10 <Eric> Lion is looking hot
06:45:06 <Kevin L> of 1344
06:45:10 <Eric> OF 1344
06:51:43 <Dave fom B> At the 9 hour work
06:51:50 <Dave fom B> for Grand
06:52:11 <Dave fom B> work = mark...I got 2 letters right
06:53:13 <Kevin L> We talk Davespeak here.
06:54:13 <Ryan> Dave, Bechler got moved to August 5 because Falls River is up like 4ft.
06:55:14 <Dave fom B> Makes sense...Bechler area is much wetter than rest of park. LateSummer hiking is the best in that area.
06:56:31 <Dave fom B> Ryan, when does school start this fall?
07:03:54 <Kevin L> May have another Daisy before Grand.
07:12:04 <Eric> SC 1412
07:21:19 <Kevin L> I can see 3 going at once
07:22:49 <Kevin L> Daisy 1422
07:22:59 <ynpvisitor5> you were right
07:23:03 <CO Dave> I'm rooting for Daisy, Grand, OF, and Lion all at once
07:23:18 <CO Dave> never mind, there's daisy messing me up.
07:23:39 <ynpvisitor5> long wait for OF still
07:24:13 <Kevin L> Not a lot of steam.
07:24:26 <CO Dave> true with the long last time.
07:24:48 <CO Dave> good look at daisy water today.
07:27:44 <Eric> wow...bunch of Turban times now
07:28:25 <ynpvisitor5> with Vent overflow on the last one listed....
07:28:30 <Eric> Stuck on 17 min intervals
07:28:30 <CO Dave> cool I've been trying to fill them in mentally based on 20 mins. per, but 17 looks to be the number...
07:28:51 <ynpvisitor5> that was a while ago now
07:28:52 <CO Dave> should be one right about now
07:28:53 <Dave fom B> And, they just got a vent delay...ouch
07:29:06 <ynpvisitor5> 1354 was the delay
07:29:16 <Kevin L> :p
07:29:25 <Kevin L> It knows Dave is watching.
07:29:39 <Eric> So a vent dealy affects the cycle how?
07:29:40 <Dave fom B> haha
07:29:59 <ynpvisitor5> that is a lot of 17's
07:30:07 <Dave fom B> Usually means a bunch of Tubans before Grand goes...maybe 4-7 after vent delay? Is that correct?
07:30:19 <ynpvisitor5> usually a wait for Grand then, at least 2 turbans
07:30:34 <ynpvisitor5> V2 is quite common
07:30:42 <Dave fom B> Thanks, 5
07:30:46 <ynpvisitor5> as is V5 unfortunately
07:30:56 <Dave fom B> I didn't know but there have been some V4's and V'5 the past month
07:31:11 <ynpvisitor5> I wonder if there was no Turban since the 1354, that would be weird
07:31:33 <Dave fom B> Maybe, Jake had enough and left
07:31:36 <Eric> Probably just out of range for data signal
07:31:46 <Eric> or that :-)
07:31:52 <CO Dave> that would be weird. we should at 2 turbans post delay. into waiting for the third.
07:32:19 <Kevin L> This kind of delay could make him consider Zion or Bryce.
07:32:30 <ynpvisitor5> when vent overflows it is almost 100% delay of at least one Turban cycle
07:32:56 <ynpvisitor5> people could get to restroom and back...
07:34:31 <Eric> So if we stick to 17 minute intervals, that would put us at 1445 for the next possible
07:34:57 <Dave fom B> I can almost bet intervals lengthened but only a guess
07:35:05 <ynpvisitor5> that many 17's is also quite unusual
07:35:20 <CO Dave> had a 14 last week I think it was.
07:35:44 <Kevin L> Lion is being stubborn also.
07:35:45 <ynpvisitor5> do you remember what happened after that?
07:36:44 <CO Dave> I seem to remember we lost updates in favor of BH.
07:37:16 <Ryan> It is very hard to post from the basin at this time, cell networks are overloadd midday
07:37:25 <CO Dave> I think there was a vent delay that day too.
07:38:27 <Eric> Jake needs to kick in his satellite phone and bypass those pesky cell networks!
07:39:27 <Dave fom B> Have to leave for 20 minutes...ok can go now
07:39:45 <Mara> my experience was if you wanted to try anything with the cellular network, you were screwed between 1100-2100.
07:40:05 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
07:40:31 <ynpvisitor5> with the app, it must keep trying and eventually goes through
07:41:22 <Mara> I don't run Android, sadly. D:
07:41:58 <ynpvisitor5> maybe OF will be first
07:42:35 <Kevin L> It may
07:43:33 <Eric> window in the next 2 - 8 minutes
07:47:50 <Ryan> WAVES ON GRAND
07:47:54 <Ryan> VENT OVERFLOWING
07:47:57 <Ryan> !
07:47:58 <Ryan> !
07:47:59 <Ryan> !
07:48:15 <Craig> *grabs popcorn*
07:48:21 <Eric> nice call ryan
07:48:25 <Ryan> Grand 1448!
07:48:33 <Mel> finally grand
07:48:35 <Eric> wow...big
07:48:58 <Betty> cool Ryan. Thanks :-)
07:49:02 <Kevin L> Worth the wait!
07:49:03 <ynpvisitor78> nice start after that wait
07:53:34 <ynpvisitor78> so my feed does not pause all day until now...
07:58:58 <ynpvisitor5> nice 2nd
07:59:45 <ynpvisitor5> that was quick
07:59:47 <Eric> oh man, looked away for a second and miss a second :-(
08:00:55 <CO Dave> thx to Ryan!
08:01:43 <Eric> We really do need an FRS to internet relay :-)
08:02:29 <Kevin L> Will had one last year but it didn't work too well.
08:03:04 <Mara> A radio that sits in a quiet room somewhere with a recorder that streams real time?
08:03:30 <Eric> No, it actually translates the incoming radio signal into a digital stream
08:04:05 <Eric> then you can hear what is being said on on FRS radio channel, 24x7
08:04:24 <Mara> huh
08:05:43 <CO Dave> I remember a discussion about this - isn't against some federal reg or another to repeat these type of radio transmissions? Even in this way, and not rebroadcast?
08:06:17 <ynpvisitor78> I remember opposition to it
08:06:29 <CO Dave> not specifically denied to do this, but under some interpretation of the regs and repeating.
08:06:48 <Eric> I think FRS is fine, but not GMRS
08:07:06 <CO Dave> maybe that was it - there was discussion of the licensing with GMRS too
08:07:08 <Eric> when not done for profit
08:07:25 <Eric> Yes, GMRS you need a license to use
08:07:35 <Eric> but the range and power is much greater
08:07:35 <CO Dave> at any rate, it would be most excellent to hear the chatter.
08:08:12 <Eric> The problem is outbound bandwidth from the basin.
08:08:50 <Kevin L> We need to get together and buy a cell tower out there.
08:08:53 <ynpvisitor78> will that ever improve? the only upgrade they have made to cell coverage is at Lake
08:09:28 <Dave fom B> Did I miss anything?
08:09:58 <ynpvisitor78> yes
08:10:07 <ynpvisitor78> thank you for your sacrifice
08:10:25 <Dave fom B> haha 78
08:10:32 <CO Dave> I have such mixed feelings about cell and data coverage in the basins - great for this stuff, but such a modern distraction. so many people face down in their phones in the greatest phenomenon in the world.
08:10:44 <Kevin L> It was a real bad 2 burst Grand. Barely made it over the trees.
08:10:52 <ynpvisitor78> barely
08:11:09 <Eric> The problem is the NPS is super strict on wireless signals of any kind it seems.
08:11:09 <Dave fom B> For some reason, I don't belive you two!:)
08:11:27 <ynpvisitor78> 2nd burst was fast and tall, and the start was huge
08:11:27 <lt> the main thing I use my cell phone for in basin is a synchronized clock for noting eruption times
08:12:48 <CO Dave> or the loud obnoxious phone conversations, which I dislike anywhere.
08:12:56 <Paul L.> I dont even plan on looking at my phone. except to wine to Dave when he way of on a perdiction.
08:13:08 <Dave fom B> :D
08:13:10 <Paul L.> lol
08:13:13 <CO Dave> see, now, that's perfect!
08:13:17 <ynpvisitor78> good Davesspeak Paul
08:13:22 <lt> I'm sure Dave will appreciate the wine
08:13:28 <Dave fom B> Yes, I love wine
08:14:20 <Dave fom B> Absolutely no short Aurum intervals in past least on GT
08:14:39 <Kevin L> Got a real nice Aurum this morning.
08:14:53 <Dave fom B> Yes, we did. Where is the next one?
08:15:10 <Kevin L> Tomorrow
08:15:46 <Mara> probably in the same spot the first Aurum was?
08:16:13 <Dave fom B> There goes Mara...always awake enough to throw a zinger!:)
08:16:59 <Kevin L> I bet Dave is fun at work.
08:17:14 <Graham> ello, wow lots of ppl and BH isn't due?
08:17:22 <Dave fom B> I sign the checks so people are nice to me at work.
08:17:28 <Eric> Hey Graham
08:17:31 <Dave fom B> Hi, Graham
08:17:37 <Eric> Do you throw fish at people Dave?
08:17:52 <Kevin L> They know he can be a bit crabby.
08:17:56 <Dave fom B> Fish are too valuable.
08:18:10 <Eric> :-)
08:18:15 <Dave fom B> Co-workers are staring at me again
08:18:35 <Eric> Go Lion Go
08:18:58 <Eric> Grand
08:19:05 <Eric> What is happenign over there
08:19:13 <Dave fom B> Eric, I'm envisioning you with pom poms saying that last phrase...not a pretty picture.
08:19:30 <Eric> Your totally correct Dave :-)
08:20:09 <Eric> Is Grand just residual steaming?
08:20:56 <Dave fom B> Turban and/or Vent could stil be going
08:21:14 <Eric> ahhh
08:21:33 <ynpvisitor78> Vent can continue on for almost an hour
08:21:47 <Eric> wow...didn't realize that
08:22:00 <Eric> I learn so much from you guys ever time I am here!
08:22:05 <Dave fom B> We saw 2 occassions on our last trip were Turban and Vent quit when Grand quit....
08:22:22 <Dave fom B> then restarted are were going about 30-60 m inutes later
08:22:31 <Eric> OF 1522
08:22:33 <Dave fom B> are = and
08:22:47 <Dave fom B> OF 1522ie
08:23:03 <Dave fom B> Eric, that is why we are here. I learn something everyday....
08:23:19 <Eric> Thanks for everyone sharing :-D
08:23:27 <Dave fom B> I'm not just here to practice my spelling.
08:23:34 <Eric> haha
08:26:02 <ynpvisitor78> I thought you were here Dave to practice your typing
08:26:45 <Dave fom B> haha
08:28:03 <Mara> Dave's here for us to practice our patience with typos.
08:31:36 <ynpvisitor78> all of chat is here for that!
08:32:30 <Dave fom B> You all should try doing your Payroll quarterly reports and type at the same time!:)
08:34:18 <Kevin L> That could make for some interesting paychecks.
08:35:51 <Mara> does it amuse anyone else that Beehive's ID on GT is 1 while OF's is 2?
08:36:31 <Eric> no
08:36:37 <Eric> :-P
08:37:04 <Mara> ...well fine then xD
08:38:39 <Dave fom B> haha. Why isn't Grand #2?
08:38:46 <Graham> doesn't Micah want Big Anemone #1
08:39:01 <Graham> or Will want F&M
08:39:08 <Graham> guess Jakes favorite is BH
08:39:15 <Eric> I think Jake made that decision.
08:40:03 <Eric> Personally, I would have made the ids random...they shouldn't mean anything to anybody but the computer
08:41:33 <Graham> whats the fun in that?
08:44:07 <Eric> Not supposed to be fun, if you really want to identify the geysers in the url, they should have used meaningful titles
08:44:26 <Eric> like
08:44:40 <Eric>
08:45:14 <Eric> it also helps search engines like google pick them up correctly.
08:50:13 <Dave fom B> WEll, I should probably go home, so something else will erupt. Have a great evening everyone!
08:50:33 <Mara> farewell Dave
08:52:33 <Eric> night dave
08:52:41 <Kevin L> bye
08:57:46 <Graham> time for me to do some work i guess
08:58:27 <ynpvisitor5> didn't you just get off work?
08:58:58 <Graham> LC
08:59:10 <Graham> yeah but the cam watchers are hard taskmasters
09:00:30 <Graham> WT
09:01:52 <Paul L.> alot of peeps walking around the grand area
09:02:16 <Graham> nice afternoon
09:02:30 <Paul L.> alot of peeps everyware
09:02:43 <Graham> suffering withdrawal Mara?
09:03:50 <Kevin L> Gee. We have a flash flood warning.
09:04:05 <Eric> wow
09:05:18 <Paul L.> It rains there Kevin?
09:05:39 <Kevin L> Just looked outside. It must be a dry rain.
09:05:50 <Paul L.> lol
09:07:09 <Mara> Graham - much. Much withdrawal.
09:07:45 <Graham> how long were you there?
09:09:07 <Mara> I've been away from home for nearly a month... total time in the park, probably 25 days.
09:10:22 <Graham> thats a nice time, you will need 6mo to recover
09:12:59 <Mara> A lot of it is Yellowstone itself, but there's a significant portion of it that is related to gazers. I miss people.
09:15:10 <Graham> Slot
09:16:05 <ynpvisitor73> Castle?
09:16:30 <Graham> Sawmill
09:16:38 <Craig> Sawmill
09:17:06 <Graham> yep, Castle
09:18:23 <Graham> the geysers were waiting for me
09:20:49 <Eric> for some reason I cannot reach right now :-(
09:21:40 <Graham> shame you cant see Giantess
09:21:53 <Eric> your funny
09:23:19 <Kevin L> Big hit on the OF seismo today.
09:25:14 <Graham> nice one
09:26:57 <Graham> nothing showing on quake maps
09:27:39 <Tammy> it looks like a beautiful Castle eruption happening right now.
09:27:51 <Tammy> What was the smaller one on Geyser Hill that you zoomed in on a few minutes ago?
09:28:54 <Eric> ugg, googles DNS servers are failing for :-(
09:29:31 <Graham> SLot was erupting in line between OF cone and Sponge
09:30:12 <Kevin L> 6.9 EQ in southern Mexico.
09:31:00 <Eric> can anybody else reach
09:31:12 <Tammy> it's working for me
09:31:19 <Eric> hmmmm
09:31:38 <Tammy> i refreshed the link a minute ago because it was watery, but now it's okay
09:31:50 <Graham> working fine here, you are just s[ecial Eric
09:32:14 <Kevin L> Working fine for me too.
09:35:10 <Eric> Working now, I removed google's DNS servers and went with OpenDNS for now :-(
09:35:28 <Eric> Someimtes google sucks all the fun out of the internet....
09:40:23 <Graham> Daisy
09:41:32 <Eric> dnssec configuration is messed up :-( Hence google rejecting them...
09:44:43 <Mara> Severe thunderstorm warning. I'm out for now.
09:45:14 <Eric> cya mara
09:48:06 <Graham> Plate
09:48:57 <Tammy> how often does Plate erupt?
09:49:31 <Graham> that was just 2h. we had series about 3h apart before
09:50:34 <Tammy> good to know. that's one i'm not very familiar with
09:50:37 <Graham> 20-40m intervals during Giantess eruptions
09:50:51 <Graham> many years its been dormant or only single eruptions recently
09:50:58 <Graham> this is one of its most active years
09:52:52 <Tammy> so is it connected with Giantess in some way?
09:53:21 <Graham> yep, for many years it only erupted during Giantess eruptions
09:55:35 <Graham> OF 1655
09:57:09 <Graham> a short
09:57:21 <Tammy> i love all the great information you have about the geysers.
09:57:47 <Graham> yw
10:01:26 <Tammy> so grateful to be part of this cyber geyser gazing group. you guys rock! perhaps i will chat more tomorrow.
10:02:54 <Graham> headed out, hopefully someone can watch for Giantess. bbl
10:18:14 <kc (working)> lion
10:23:34 <kc (working)> duration suggests initial
10:23:48 <Eric> wooohooo
10:24:03 <Eric> could it not be an ini?
10:24:11 <Kevin L> I think it is.
10:25:39 <Eric> I would assume so, but I was wondering if you could have 11 hours between eruptions and have it not be an ini.
10:26:10 <kc (working)> i havent been watching close this afternoon, so being safe
10:26:22 <Kevin L> I hadn't seen it all day.
10:26:25 <kc (working)> td has it on gt, as ini
10:26:28 <Eric> ahh, ok....definitely ini
10:26:43 <Eric> been waiting all day :-D
10:26:43 <Kevin L> I hadn't seen it all day.
10:27:35 <Eric> understood kc...I just wasn't knowledgeable enought to know if there was some other criteria for an ini :-)
10:39:33 <kc (working)> ini has longer duration, about 6 mins compared to 'normal' lion about 4
10:39:49 <ynpvisitor39> lots of shorts for OF today
10:46:10 <Kevin L> Must be Summer. OF has its shorts on.
10:46:48 <Eric> hahahahaha
10:47:00 <Eric> Geyser nerd it!
10:47:11 <Eric> humor!
10:47:16 <Eric> not human :-)
10:47:18 <Graham> back now
10:47:22 <Eric> Been around Dave too long.
10:48:54 <Graham> glad you all got Lion going
10:50:35 <Kevin L> Davespeak is catching.
10:51:24 <Eric> Ya, Lion was playing hard to get.
10:55:00 <ynpvisitor39> so what is that at the top of the cam picture? The housing?
10:57:04 <Kevin L> Yep
10:57:06 <Graham> yes
10:57:36 <ynpvisitor39> ty
11:00:06 <Graham> not sure what that little dot is though
11:01:28 <Kevin L> Think that is the start of where it screws on.
11:02:07 <Graham> i see they have it nicely centered :)
11:10:24 <ynpvisitor39> maybe the last OF was a medium
11:11:31 <Graham> VEC called it a short too
11:11:51 <Graham> just an outlier interval
11:12:54 <Graham> OF 1812
11:17:57 <Kevin L> Arena Football on ESPN2. Nice surprise.
11:21:56 <kcmule> aurum
11:22:04 <kcmule> 18:21
11:22:24 <ynpvisitor35> I like it!
11:22:57 <Kevin L> Nice. Two Aurums in one day!
11:23:28 <Graham> bad time for me to step away for 2 minutes, sorry
11:23:44 <Kevin L> Don't let it happen again!
11:24:18 <kcmule> np
11:31:22 <ynpvisitor39> Lion
11:35:27 <ynpvisitor39> Lion was 1831
11:38:10 <Graham> well i guess it happened again, this time the power went out
11:41:34 <Graham> anyone on the cam now?
11:42:51 <Graham> i have it back for a while
11:42:57 <Graham> power permitting
11:42:57 <ynpvisitor39> power out, is it storming?
11:43:22 <Graham> no storms, was odd. went out, then back within a minute
11:44:46 <ynpvisitor39> wonder why there are no F & M posts at all, no event cycles, no notes...
11:45:12 <ynpvisitor39> well I caught Lion, so now you can go from there
11:46:26 <Graham> think they have realized its not predictable now
11:46:45 <Graham> almost 9 days now
11:47:06 <Eric> has it ever been predictable Graham?
11:47:24 <Graham> yes, 3-5.5 days
11:47:48 <Eric> but it has to get in a cycle first?
11:48:23 <Graham> it can do that after a few eratic early season eruptions
11:48:57 <Graham> in a good year, or it can be all infrequent like last year
11:48:58 <Eric> By August is it pretty regular?
11:49:21 <Eric> as regular as 3.5 - 5 days can be :-P
11:50:02 <Kevin L> On your power Graham, they may have been doing a line switch in your area. or there could have been a breaker trip. If a breaker trips, they have it set up to turn it back on in about 5 seconds in case there was just a surge. If it trips again it triggers an alarm and they have crews check it.
11:50:40 <Graham> thanks Kevin, it was short but clearly off
11:51:58 <Graham> Aug and Sept can be good months for F&M
11:53:02 <Eric> ok...well maybe I will get lucky then :-) looking at last years data, things seemed to start happening about now with F&M
11:57:11 <Andrew> august and sept are good months, as they get going fully and not coming out of spring slowdown
12:04:24 <Kevin L> Grand had a super long interval today but the eruption sure made up for it.
12:05:14 <Graham> Daisy 1904
12:06:16 <ynpvisitor39> Daisy is so nice on the new cam
12:06:33 <Graham> lights flickering again
12:07:36 <Graham> now i cant get the cam control
12:08:04 <Kevin L> Click on the reconnect above the zoom
12:08:14 <Andrew> what do they use now to connect to the cam
12:08:51 <Graham> got it back to default anyway
12:10:05 <Graham> going to quit now, see ya
12:11:48 <Kevin L> Not sure what it is called. I think it is software that comes with the cam.
12:27:01 <ynpvisitor69> ...
12:33:57 <kcmule> lion 19:32 minor unless it restarts
12:42:40 <Kevin L> It looks like it wants to start again.
12:43:09 <Eric> video stream is blank for me :-(
12:43:11 <kcmule> dont we all
12:43:32 <kcmule> stream ok here
12:43:43 <Kevin L> OK here
12:45:47 <Eric> is still stuttering for me...but somewhat useable
12:47:44 <Eric> Is that plate going off again behind OF?
12:48:46 <Eric> Graham was mentioning that can be a precursor to giantess
12:48:48 <kcmule> no h2o
12:49:26 <Eric> My stream is so bad...It's really hard to see anything with the stutter stop/starts
12:50:18 <Kevin L> You may want to shut down that window and reload.
12:50:32 <Eric> just did...restarted entire luck
12:50:43 <Eric> I think it's network issues....
12:51:41 <Kevin L> I know it is worse for me in the evening.
12:56:18 <kcmule> OF 19:55
12:56:40 <Eric> The NPS screwed something up with their DNS server settings this afternoon....
12:57:20 <Eric> google had removed from it's DNS servers due to badly configured DNS entries.
12:57:49 <Eric> I actually had to switch from google to opendns to get the cam to work.
13:01:22 <Eric> Crowded 8pm OF
13:04:47 <Kevin L> My wife found me a really neat pocket slide rule from Bruning. I didn't even know they made slide rules. Used a lot of their drafting equipment in my day though.
13:09:30 <Eric> Nice
13:11:05 <Kevin L> Still like the Picketts better though.
13:12:34 <Eric>
13:14:08 <Kevin L> I have one of those. Also have a 600ES and a Model 14. 600ESM is what the Apollo astronauts used and the Model 14 was used in artillery.
13:18:51 <Eric> Nice, the computer history museum near san francisco has a great slide rule collection.
13:19:04 <Eric> along with early calculators
13:20:04 <Eric> They have a full size babbage analytics engine:
13:23:12 <Kevin L> This is the one:
13:23:14 <Kevin L>
13:24:29 <Kevin L> What really amazed me is the new engineering students don't know what an RPN calculator is. We designed I-515 in Vegas using those. No computer needed!
13:26:09 <lt> my father has tried to explain it to me.
13:26:12 <lt> it has never stuck.
13:27:16 <Kevin L> Slide rule or RPN calculator?
13:29:25 <Kevin L> Looks like Turban
13:31:11 <lt> RPN
13:32:09 <Kevin L> Once you get used to it you love it.
14:05:22 <kcmule> oblong? 21:04ns

14:53:24 <kcmule> per Jake. cool
14:55:41 <ynpvisitor31> Caught the end of grotto this year. A first
14:56:34 <ynpvisitor31> SO who is using a script to see the chat and the cam?
