00:06:36 <Paul L.> Morning
00:09:23 <Dave from B> Morning Paul
00:14:51 <Mel> Good Morning!
00:16:48 <Dave from B> Morning Mel
00:30:55 <Dave from B> Daisy 0730ie
00:36:29 <CO Dave> Mornin' y'all
00:37:42 <Dave from B> Morning CO Dave
00:39:24 <CO Dave> If Grand keeps up the sub-seven hour intervals, we could be in the window.
00:42:10 <Dave from B> I haven't been watching....Anyone seen Turban this morning?
01:08:42 <Eric> Morning everyone.
01:08:57 <Eric> anenome
01:11:09 <Paul L.> Morning Eric
01:11:17 <Eric> Turban
01:11:22 <Eric> Hey Paul
01:11:42 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
01:12:39 <Eric> I just watched the recording kc did of yesterdays! That is the prettiest BH I have seen on the cam
01:13:16 <Paul L.> Link please?
01:13:36 <Eric>
01:13:46 <Paul L.> ty
01:13:54 <Eric> OF 0813
01:17:05 <Eric> Big anenome
01:18:12 <Paul L.> Bummer could not open it. I will have to take your word for it Erid.
01:18:51 <Eric> Paul, download VLC, it is a great video player that is free
01:19:01 <Paul L.> Erid = Eric
01:19:32 <Eric>
01:19:40 <Paul L.> yes i know. got it on my home pc. but here at work I do not have admin to do it
01:19:50 <Eric> ohhh :-(
01:20:00 <Paul L.> Ya it sucks
01:20:06 <Paul L.> I hate it
01:22:14 <Eric> They make a portable version:
01:22:23 <Eric> which means you don't have to install it
01:22:35 <Eric> just download and it will run without install
01:23:01 <Eric> I put these kinds of things on a usb dongle and take them with me :-)
01:29:41 <Dave from B> dongle...isn't that the piece of flech that hangs from a moose?
01:30:24 <Dave from B> flesh
01:31:50 <Eric> it's something that hangs from anything :-) usb drives used to connect via a floppy cable, hence the name dongle.
01:32:01 <Dave from B> It's a dewlap in case anyone is searching:)
01:32:21 <Eric>
01:33:32 <Eric>
01:34:10 <Eric> aka Wattle for birds :-)
01:34:44 <Dave from B> There is a learning session for today!:D
01:34:58 <Dave from B> There is our learning for the day
01:35:48 <Dave from B> I had never heard of Wattle before
01:35:56 <Paul L.> Cam Chat 101 :)
01:37:06 <Eric> So about geysers....Lion time between inis is weird
01:37:13 <ynpvisitor70> Anybody out there remember when 4 and 5 inch floppy discs were an amazing thing?
01:37:28 <ynpvisitor70> Sorry - I suddenly feel reallllllllly old
01:37:58 <Paul L.> Yep I do
01:38:01 <Eric> Ya, the drop from 8 to 5 inch was nice, and then the hard plastic 3" were crazy amazing
01:38:30 <Eric> I still have 3" floppy disks around.
01:39:35 <Paul L.> I rember the very first Apple my grade shcool got when i was in 4th or 5th grade I think
01:39:39 <Dave from B> During my move, I have come across a few 3" disks
01:39:55 <Eric> So anybody found a pattern yet in the lion 11 hour/6 hour inis?
01:40:58 <Eric> I don't think we will see a lion until around noon today
01:43:05 <Dave from B> Length of series is not the greatest predictor of series intervals
01:43:32 <Eric> I wasn't using that
01:43:44 <Dave from B> But, I really don't know much about the topic. Would love to know more from someone who does!
01:44:07 <Eric> I was just looking at the ini intervals and it seems they are 6 or under, then move to 11
01:44:15 <Dave from B> I believe Demetri has worked on that topic a bit.
01:44:26 <Eric> no real in between
01:45:18 <Dave from B> 5-7 hour intervals are pretty unusual...they "seem" to be occurring after a short 2 eruption series when they do occur
01:45:40 <Dave from B> But a 2 eruption series can also have a longer interval between series
01:46:01 <Eric> we had a long series last night
01:46:52 <Dave from B> I'm expecting an interval of 10-13 hours
01:47:32 <Dave from B> Eric, do you have any of the Transactions books published by GOSA?
01:47:47 <Eric> no
01:48:09 <Eric> LC
01:48:17 <Dave from B> I'll take a look when I get home tonight and see if there are any articales about Lion
01:48:30 <Eric> cool, thanks Dave
01:51:24 <Eric> ok, after looking at more times...they are all over the map. But I will stick with my WAG of noon :-)
01:52:51 <Dave from B> I tough part about GT and Lion is long interval isn't always correct if eruptions have been missed at night.
01:52:56 <Dave from B> I = The
01:53:20 <Dave from B> That has to be factored into your analyzing as well.
01:53:50 <Eric> oblong
01:54:05 <Eric> true
01:55:05 <Eric> My "analysis" was pretty shoddy :-( I reviewed the last 100 eruptions of ini intervals and made a guess from that.
01:55:35 <Eric> That is Oblong right?
01:55:52 <Dave from B> Too far right for Oblong. It is almost in the same spot as Grand from the cam
01:56:11 <Dave from B> That is probably Grotto but I'm not an expert on "behind the trees" gazing
01:56:19 <Eric> haha
01:56:20 <Eric> ok
01:56:37 <Dave from B> That is lc's department
01:56:41 <Eric> I am still pretty fuzzy on Oblong, Grotto, Riverside
01:57:21 <Eric> Would have to have a video clip of each erupting and definitive identification.
01:59:00 <Eric> could it be artamesia?
02:00:11 <Eric> Turban
02:00:18 <Dave from B> I don't speculate behind the trees. I leave that to others
02:00:27 <Eric> haha
02:00:55 <Eric> ok...some people are really good at reading the steam :-)
02:01:29 <Eric> maybe it was giant :-P
02:01:51 <Eric> just got e times on GT
02:02:18 <Dave from B> ..
02:02:33 <Dave from B> That pushs Grand back a bit
02:03:01 <Dave from B> Grand 0915-1015
02:04:12 <Dave from B> and for you, exact guess as well...Grand 0933
02:05:47 <Eric> Thanks Dave :-)
02:06:30 <Eric> We had a Turban at 0900 so I would probably guess around 9:40 :-)
02:12:12 <Mel> They used to have a pic with arrows pointing to the steam behind the trees identify each geyser
02:12:51 <Mel> We all wish it was Giant
02:12:56 <Eric> Yes, I actually went back and looked this morning :-)
02:13:06 <Eric>
02:13:13 <Eric> Have it open in another tab right now.
02:13:45 <Eric> and good morning mel
02:13:54 <Eric> and good morning kc
02:14:19 <Eric> BTW, kc...many thanks for the awesome BH capture.
02:19:00 <Eric> We should have a turban here any moment
02:19:58 <Mel> Eric do you get yor turban from the steam?
02:20:28 <Eric> yes
02:22:32 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:22:55 <Eric> LC
02:23:33 <Dave from B> Did I miss a Turban?
02:23:51 <Eric> I have not seen one
02:24:45 <kc (working)> @Eric yw
02:27:15 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:28:58 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:40:49 <Eric> I had to drop off for a few...any Turban steam?
02:41:49 <Eric> ohh, I think I see Turban steam right now.
02:42:41 <Eric> OF 0942
02:44:40 <Dave from B> It looks like my prediction will be wrong
02:44:51 <Eric> haha
02:44:54 <Eric> mine too
02:45:22 <Eric> Maybe 1000
02:49:19 <ynpvisitor95> 1 PM bh?
02:52:37 <Eric> Yes, 1300 BH
02:53:56 <Dave from B> It's been awhile since we've seen 2 comparitively short BH intervals in a row so that seems like a good guess
02:54:28 <Eric> I scheduled it...the pump will activate at 1300 :-P
02:55:15 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:56:36 <Eric> Paul, you getting excited?
03:02:48 <Dave from B> He's so excited he fell asleep?
03:03:16 <Eric> I guess so....but he is at he might actually be doing something :-)
03:03:29 <Dave from B> haha
03:05:26 <CO Dave> Daisy 1005 ie, right on time
03:06:14 <ynpvisitor30> My Prediction- BH and Grand at the same time
03:08:05 <Dave from B> 30, you have a cruel sense of humor:):)
03:08:24 <ynpvisitor30> Just realistic :P
03:14:10 <ynpvisitor30> .
03:31:11 <Eric> any more Turbans?
03:31:17 <Eric> I had to step out for a few
03:33:40 <Dave from B> hone with my bank. They actually made a mistake
03:33:46 <Dave from B> On the phone
03:34:01 <Eric> and admitted it?
03:34:10 <Dave from B> They had to
03:34:38 <Dave from B> They corrected a deposit by $70.90 and they weren't even checks payable to us.
03:35:48 <Eric> ugg
03:37:38 <kc (working)> daisy could use an entry
03:37:39 <Eric> We should see another turban soon.
03:44:20 <Dave from B> I haven't been paying attention. Is someone driving the cam?
03:49:19 <Dave from B> OF 1049
03:49:22 <Mel> of 1049
03:51:02 <Eric> 67 minute
03:51:16 <Dave from B> last must have been a short then
03:51:23 <Eric> yep
03:51:41 <Eric> This one is looking pretty weak too
03:53:07 <Mel> There seems to be a groups over at beehive waiting for the indicator
03:53:20 <Eric> however, it would seem to be a long
03:54:37 <Eric> Well, BH is in it's larger window starting about now
03:54:43 <Eric> If we had a short interval
03:55:21 <Eric> I was hoping we would start seeing some in basin Turban times :-(
03:55:26 <Dave from B> Human nature is to assume a shorter interval will follow a short one but hasn't been happening all that often at BH in the past few weeks.
03:56:13 <Eric> Ya, I think the mid range 1300 guess is more likely
03:56:22 <Mara> That line of thinking results in six hour sits... :D
03:56:38 <Eric> Morning Mara
03:56:43 <Dave from B> Mara, yes it does and that can be painful
03:56:49 <Dave from B> Yes, Morning Mara
03:57:25 <Mara> Good morning! Almost afternoon for me. I may or may not have elected to stay up late last night editing video and only got up an hour ago...
03:58:41 <Mara> When you're still sitting at Grand and have seen two Depressions, missed a two burst Grand, seen Castle, seen Aurum for 20 seconds, and have a page full of LC times, you start to reevaluate life choices. :D
03:59:15 <Dave from B> :D
03:59:21 <Dave from B> There are days like that
03:59:35 <ynpvisitor25> do you mean sitting at BH Mara?
03:59:50 <ynpvisitor25> how do you miss a 2 burst Grand if you are at Grand?
03:59:51 <Eric> I assumed that :-)
04:00:02 <Eric> fell asleep?
04:00:05 <ynpvisitor25> she is still sleepy
04:00:14 <Mara> ...derp
04:00:22 <ynpvisitor25> and report from basin, CELL service is almost impossible
04:00:34 <Eric> BTW, speaking of Grand...were is it?
04:00:45 <Mara> Yeah, meant BH.
04:00:48 <ynpvisitor25> if you are not on Verizon, chances are you are not getting through between 10-2000
04:00:57 <Eric> That makes sense 25, no in basin times this morning :-(
04:01:08 <ynpvisitor25> and even Verizon peeps have problems during those times
04:01:17 <Eric> I also carry verizon in park...
04:01:19 <ynpvisitor25> also, huge lack of smart phones with gazers that are there now
04:01:26 <Eric> even though I have tmobile at home
04:02:09 <Eric> Backpack wifi directional antenna :-P
04:02:15 <Mara> Boys are off gallivanting, too, so I was expected a lot fewer times.
04:02:18 <ynpvisitor25> a few gazers are doing that now
04:02:20 <Mara> ...was expected
04:02:25 <Mara> *slow clap*
04:04:16 <Mara> I can communicate clearly and effectively, I swear!
04:05:11 <Eric> I thought you were just typing so Dave could understand ;-)
04:05:20 <Dave from B> :P
04:05:29 <Eric> Sorry Dave, your always at the end of typo jokes...
04:05:42 <Eric> But your really no worse than the rest of us....
04:05:51 <Mara> it's spreading
04:05:52 <Eric> you're :-P
04:06:00 <Paul L.> Me for sure
04:06:51 <Dave from B> Yeah, I had a real bad couple of days a year or so ago and it has stuck. It's okay. I can live with it.
04:07:02 <Eric> :-)
04:25:38 <Dave from B> Unlike others on this page, my typos haven't resulted in words becoming X rated.:)
04:25:59 <Dave from B> I won't ame names to protect the guilty!:)
04:26:14 <Eric> I personally prefer X rated words :-P
04:26:51 <Dave from B> They do produce a lLOT of laughs when they surprise even the poster!
04:26:57 <Eric> But I know others don't share my regard for the broader spectrum of the english language.
04:27:32 <Eric> Driver is wishful thinking :-)
04:27:52 <Dave from B> Going looking for lunch. bbiam.
04:29:25 <lt> last night's BH was gorgeous
04:33:34 <ynpvisitor96> ha ha, be back in a minute...
04:34:18 <ynpvisitor96> usually that is enough to get Grand to go
04:34:57 <ynpvisitor96> a wagon!!
04:35:31 <ynpvisitor96> so are we off turban cycle, so not watching for Grand?
04:39:47 <ynpvisitor96> GRAND 1133
04:39:54 <ynpvisitor96> sheesh
04:40:09 <ynpvisitor96> can we see the end???
04:40:39 <ynpvisitor96> we could still catch 2nd burst....
04:40:43 <ynpvisitor96> ding
04:40:44 <ynpvisitor96> ding
04:40:53 <ynpvisitor96> who is driving???
04:41:16 <ynpvisitor96> anyone there?
04:43:57 <ynpvisitor96> sems so odd to me, you guys have been waiting for Grand all day....
04:44:08 <ynpvisitor96> why not watch it???
04:44:21 <ynpvisitor96> Eric, Paul, ?
04:45:01 <Eric> uggg
04:45:10 <Eric> I don't know who is driving
04:45:12 <ynpvisitor96> so bizarre,
04:45:27 <Eric> ya, BH isn't going to go for another hour
04:45:35 <ynpvisitor96> I texted to basin to get turban time and they are like, GRAND IS ERUPTING
04:45:37 <Eric> Lion might pop here.
04:45:38 <ynpvisitor96> yet here we sit
04:45:40 <ynpvisitor96> so odd
04:46:03 <ynpvisitor96> someone posted from basin
04:46:05 <Eric> Bad idea for the driver to leave the cam unattended in a narrow focus :-(
04:46:13 <ynpvisitor96> we need Kevin
04:47:28 <Eric> we need someone!
04:47:41 <ynpvisitor96> it was a 2 burst too!!!!
04:47:57 <ynpvisitor17> how many people have access to drive the camera?
04:48:19 <Eric> not sure, but they are not all on chat
04:48:23 <ynpvisitor47> one
04:48:32 <Eric> no idea who is driving right now
04:48:43 <Eric> more than one
04:48:43 <ynpvisitor47> only one an drive at a time.
04:48:51 <Eric> ohh, at a time...
04:48:57 <Eric> I think he was asking total
04:49:00 <Eric> have access
04:49:06 <Eric> Go Lion Go
04:49:38 <ynpvisitor47> my understanding is that if another driver tries to take over without propper handover, it can crash the feed.
04:49:52 <Dave from B> ..
04:49:59 <ynpvisitor17> interesting. i've always wondered how it works.
04:50:09 <ynpvisitor47> I'm not thrilled with the narrow pointing this morning. We even missed an OF
04:50:15 <Eric> We missed Grand Dave :-(
04:50:18 <ynpvisitor17> sad that Grand and OF were both missed
04:50:33 <ynpvisitor17> and two burst Grand eruptions are fairly rare right now, right?
04:50:44 <ynpvisitor96> well not so rare
04:50:46 <ynpvisitor17> i saw one a couple weeks ago in the WC and got pretty excited
04:50:46 <Eric> You sure we missed OF?
04:51:03 <ynpvisitor47> earlier this morning not the most recent
04:51:03 <ynpvisitor96> yet I have heard that cam ops are supposed to stay on wide field unless something is erupting
04:51:05 <Dave from B> 2 days in a row....why me, Grand?
04:51:14 <ynpvisitor96> none of us could see it dave
04:51:19 <ynpvisitor96> very frustrating
04:51:23 <Eric> Nobody on the cam saw it...
04:51:28 <ynpvisitor96> at least you were away
04:51:35 <ynpvisitor17> now it's back out again, the cam i mean
04:51:46 <ynpvisitor96> so bizarre
04:52:04 <ynpvisitor96> cam op must have left it on close up and walked away
04:52:04 <Eric> probably auto setting to revert to wide if nobody is driving for a while.
04:52:19 <ynpvisitor96> no idea
04:52:28 <Eric> It could have been a park admin as well.
04:52:37 <ynpvisitor96> not a close up on BH
04:52:40 <ynpvisitor96> not an admin
04:52:55 <Eric> why not? I have seen them do it before
04:53:08 <ynpvisitor47> I think it reflects a different way of watching. Some poeple just like to see closeups
04:53:37 <ynpvisitor96> yes, I love closeups, like a close up of Grand would have been awesome
04:53:38 <Eric> closeup is cool, but not when it's not active and Grand is erupting...grrrr
04:53:49 <ynpvisitor96> perfect time of day to see it without lots of steam
04:54:08 <ynpvisitor17> do you mean the park admin would most likely leave it panned out?
04:54:17 <ynpvisitor96> yes, I think that
04:54:21 <ynpvisitor96> or panning
04:55:00 <Dave from B> Be patient everyone. I'm not sure why it was zoomed in but the cam is not able to be manned 24/7. There are only so many operators.
04:55:12 <Eric> Before volunteers had access, the admins had control and didn't always place the camera in optimal positions.
04:55:24 <ynpvisitor96> I agree Dave, yet leave it on wide at least if you are not moving
04:55:39 <ynpvisitor96> that is the default
04:56:20 <Dave from B> I know Kevin was away this morning. They probably weren't able to cover his shift.
04:56:48 <ynpvisitor96> someone is driving as we were stuck on BH the whole time you were gone
04:57:02 <Eric> Dave when you said 0933 this morning for Grand, you meant hawaii time, right?
04:57:12 <ynpvisitor96> ha ha, perfect
04:57:21 <Dave from B> I meant that is what the interval was going to be:)
04:57:33 <Eric> ahhh
04:57:35 <ynpvisitor96> psychic
04:57:36 <lt> shhhhh, Dave, the correct answer was "yes"
04:57:53 <Dave from B> :D
04:58:14 <Eric> I called noon on lion...2 minutes to go :-)
04:58:44 <ynpvisitor96> now that we are panned out...
04:58:46 <Eric> ahhhh, kevin hello!
04:58:56 <Dave from B> I keep up predicting like this and I can apply to be a weatherman.
04:59:00 <Eric> Welcome back....
04:59:15 <ynpvisitor17> lol, Dave from B!
04:59:16 <Kevin L> Morning, or afternoon, depending where you are!
04:59:22 <Dave from B> Hi, Kevin
04:59:23 <Eric> Lion 1159
04:59:38 <Eric> I was pretty close :-)
04:59:44 <ynpvisitor96> good call Eric
04:59:48 <ynpvisitor17> welcome, Kevin. i think everyone has missed you, so we're all glad to see you back.
05:00:05 <Eric> Pretty weak lion
05:00:16 <Dave from B> Wow, Eric
05:00:22 <Eric> guess it's the ini stutter
05:00:25 <Kevin L> Nice to feel wanted.
05:00:40 <ynpvisitor96> we really wanted you at 1133
05:00:43 <Eric> I assume you survived the flooding.
05:01:08 <ynpvisitor96> so people walking from Grand to Bee get Lion ini
05:01:14 <Kevin L> It was pretty wet here for a while. Had a river running down my road.
05:01:48 <ynpvisitor17> yikes! that sounds a little scary. is it taken care of now?
05:02:09 <ynpvisitor17> i didn't used to get so excited to see lion, but now that i understand it a little better i do.
05:02:38 <Eric> Lion inis are awesome
05:04:24 <Eric> Come on 17 & 96 change those names to something useful :-)
05:05:03 <Eric> BH is perking up
05:05:06 <ynpvisitor17> but i'm enjoying being anonymous
05:05:10 <Dave from B> 17, I agree. Lion is now one of my favorites unless it makes me wait for over 5 hours for an initial
05:05:42 <Eric> You can still be anonymous by creating an identity that you only use here :-)
05:05:50 <ynpvisitor17> yeah, that's a very long wait.
05:05:56 <Eric> My name is not even Eric :-P
05:06:08 <Eric> It's Bob
05:06:14 <ynpvisitor17> oh really? i don't care if people know my identity.
05:06:15 <Dave from B> Eric = Englebert?
05:07:42 <Eric> or my name could be suzie...
05:07:47 <Eric> nobody knows
05:07:57 <ynpvisitor17> yeah, it could be anything really
05:08:12 <ynpvisitor17> it could even really be Eric. we never know.
05:08:18 <ynpvisitor43> Fred?
05:08:27 <Eric> But I am hoping to fix that in early august by putting my face in the park and meeting up with some other gazers :-)
05:08:50 <ynpvisitor43> Except that no-one will know who you are...
05:09:00 <Mara> You will be assimilated.
05:09:04 <Mel> I will be going back for the labor day week end
05:09:05 <Mara> Resistance is futile.
05:09:10 <Eric> Then it will be pretty obvious I am not least not full time :-P
05:09:17 <ynpvisitor30> There are two Eric's in the basin now. You could be a copycat
05:09:18 <Dave from B> haha:D
05:09:33 <Dave from B> He must be an imposter. That's too many Eric's
05:09:38 <ynpvisitor17> if you're going to be assimilated into something, the geyser gazer community is a pretty great choice.
05:09:40 <ynpvisitor43> Yes I was thinking that there are Erics already there.
05:09:48 <Mel> I plan to do a few Lone Star observations it is one of my favorites
05:09:49 <ynpvisitor43> And they are not imposters...
05:10:21 <Mara> I was partially assimilated last year, and fully this year. It's been too much fun. :)
05:10:27 <Eric> I have never been out to lone star...I reallly want to do that.
05:10:40 <Dave from B> 17, I agree. Some of my greatest memories are laughing during gazer sitins. Especially if Greg Gushwa, SteveO or lc are involved.
05:11:01 <ynpvisitor17> you can always connect with the geyser gazer community on FB, but then you lose all anonymity, unless you REALLY go the distance and create a fake profile or something.
05:11:05 <Dave from B> The 5 hour wait and Lion really ddidn't seem that long when you laugh every 5 minutes
05:11:08 <Mel> LOne Star is the neatest do it the first chance you get you will then be hooked.
05:11:10 <Eric> Yep, my daughter loves gazing because of a morning late night sit :-)
05:11:22 <Mel> You can ride a bike out there if you have one
05:11:27 <ynpvisitor17> yeah, laughing would help the wait for sure.
05:11:49 <Paul L.> I'm thinking about hiking out there Mel
05:11:51 <ynpvisitor17> lone star is fun. i saw it a couple years ago during my last visit to the park. we waited a couple of hours for it, but it was worth it.
05:11:53 <Mara> Lone Star - still need to see it. Probably won't happen this year though.
05:11:56 <Eric> ahh, I didn't realize you could bike on the lonestar trail.
05:12:08 <Mel> I eat more good Junk food waiting for geysers than any other time including TV
05:12:23 <Eric> We are bringing bikes specifically for F&M, but lone star would be cool too.
05:12:25 <Dave from B> haha @ Mel
05:12:33 <Mara> Oh, snacks...
05:12:48 <Mara> Me when I'm gathering my things for the morning:
05:12:57 <Paul L.> What's the trail? 2 miles or somthing like that?
05:13:15 <Eric> Ya, I don't think it is very long
05:13:20 <ynpvisitor17> lone star is 5 or 6 miles roundtrip
05:13:25 <ynpvisitor17> but it's a very easy trail
05:13:28 <Mara> "Mmkay, gonna put in some granola bars, ooh, Twizzlers! okay maybe put in another granola bar, some beef sticks, okay... uh..."
05:13:33 <Mel> Well the unofficial OF indicator is pretty strong now, lots of peeps on BW
05:13:56 <Eric> Ya, OF should's due
05:14:22 <Mel> from the trail head its 1 3/4 mi ita an old paved highway
05:14:33 <Eric> Lion should go again @ 1313
05:15:10 <ynpvisitor17> what's up with the two-hour intervals on OF lately? just the geyser being a geyser?
05:15:31 <ynpvisitor17> it's done that a couple times lately that i know of
05:15:41 <Eric> it had a 67 minute one this morning
05:16:14 <ynpvisitor17> interesting
05:16:22 <Mel> I'm very biased but anyone who enjoys geysers must plan to go see Lone Star. Read about it before you go so you dont get tricked by the start, start last fiv min but the real eruption will last 25 minutes
05:17:14 <Paul L.> What are the inteerviles between IE
05:18:02 <Dave from B> Only negative for me is getting to Lone Star and having to wait over 2 hours for an eruption. I only do that for other gyesres!:)
05:18:05 <lt> I made doing Lone Star a point last trip. it was a lot of fun
05:18:28 <lt> very different than stuff on Geyser Hill
05:18:32 <ynpvisitor17> it's one of the iconic images of yellowstone, so it's definitely worth seeing
05:18:51 <Mara> Lone Star was supposed to happen last trip... but then other stuff happened that ate up time :D
05:19:04 <Dave from B> ..
05:19:16 <Paul L.> Well I plan on it. I just hope I wont have to wait forever for it
05:19:16 <Kevin L> Catch it right and there are wild strawberries & raspberries along the trail.
05:19:50 <Dave from B> Since we are talking about other places...You must stop and see Vixen and Whirligig at Norris!
05:20:36 <ynpvisitor73> indis going
05:20:56 <Paul L.> I'm going to norris on sunday the 20th dave
05:21:03 <Eric> Bringing my Mother in law to the park...she has never been there.
05:21:12 <ynpvisitor97> Thanks 73
05:21:12 <Eric> BHI
05:21:16 <Eric> 1212
05:21:49 <Dave from B> Eric, you are predicting great today
05:22:11 <Eric> Someone else mentioned 1300, I just agreed :-)
05:22:14 <Eric> But thank you.
05:23:06 <Kevin L> Hopefully OF will finish before it starts.
05:23:17 <Eric> They might dual
05:23:21 <ge (working)> TY for the text
05:24:05 <ge (working)> Dual?
05:24:08 <Eric> Acutally I would almost guarantee we get some overlap.
05:25:11 <Eric> Dual as in both go at the same time
05:25:50 <Eric> BH 1225
05:26:10 <ynpvisitor23> has not started yet here
05:26:48 <Dave from B> Yippee!
05:26:53 <Dave from B> Thanks for driving Kevin
05:27:00 <ynpvisitor23> climb BEE
05:27:19 <Eric> I guess OF doesn't want to come out and play.
05:27:56 <ynpvisitor23> good, we can see Bee closer
05:28:52 <Eric> OF 1228
05:29:04 <Eric> Dual :-)
05:29:21 <Mel> yipee
05:29:22 <Eric> Monstor OF too
05:30:13 <Eric> Nice zooming Kevin :-)
05:30:26 <Eric> You are getting good with the controls.
05:30:42 <ynpvisitor23> not much height to Bee, looks windy though
05:31:42 <ynpvisitor97> Downright spectacular. Huzzah! for Wonderland.
05:32:44 <Eric> OF long
05:33:13 <Eric> Yep, nice show :-)
05:33:47 <ynpvisitor30> .
05:36:43 <ge (working)> Glkad I checked for texts when I did. The new webcam gives a much better picture
05:37:09 <ge (working)> Kevin, thanks for the videography
05:39:09 <Kevin L> yw
05:46:47 <Kevin L> Daisy 1246
06:06:01 <Kevin L> Lion 1305
06:07:11 <Kevin L> Lionette?
06:07:24 <Kevin L> That was very short
06:07:45 <Eric> weird
06:07:53 <Eric> shouldn't have gone until 1313
06:08:51 <Eric> Maybe giantess is sucking up all the power?
06:09:16 <Eric> plate has been fairly active.
06:10:40 <Kevin L> Probably get another Lion in a few minutes.
06:30:19 <Betty> good afternoon
06:31:47 <Kevin L> Hi Betty
06:33:14 <kc (working)> nice
06:33:47 <Dave from B> Yeah, Aurum
06:33:58 <Kevin L> Aurum 1333
06:33:58 <Betty> nice Aurum
06:34:02 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
06:39:46 <Kevin L> Lion 1339
06:49:55 <ynpvisitor17> Man, I missed BH today! Too bad!
06:50:23 <ynpvisitor17> It looks like there have been some shorter intervals lately. You just never know with that one.
06:51:11 <Dave from B> 3 sub 16 hour intervals in last 5...maybe ints are going to stay short for awhile.
06:53:24 <Kevin L> It and Grand are getting harder to figure out.
06:55:18 <ynpvisitor17> Grand's interval is a lot shorter this summer than it has been in the past. It goes more frequently.
06:56:01 <ynpvisitor17> I thought I saw something on FB about that the other day perhaps suggesting it was related to West Triplet activity. But I could be mistaken.
07:02:43 <Dave from B> OF 1402ie
07:04:17 <Kevin L> Start was 1400
07:16:27 <ynpvisitor43> Well I see my BH guess was off by about half an hour.
07:18:18 <Dave from B> I consider that a "bullseye", 43
07:32:53 <Eric> SC ie
07:34:19 <Eric> What is up with the crazy lion intervals?
07:34:52 <Eric> Should we expect another around 1440?
07:39:30 <Kevin L> We can look for it
07:40:17 <Dave from B> Eric, Lion minors mess up the intervals a bit
07:40:42 <Dave from B> WE may be done
07:40:53 <Dave from B> I would expect at least a poof or two
07:41:42 <Dave from B> A closer soccer match oday
07:41:48 <Dave from B> today
07:42:23 <Betty> it is. Are you watching?
07:43:05 <Kevin L> I am getting a very choppy and freezing public stream. Am I the only one?
07:43:27 <Eric> public stream is finally good for me today.
07:43:28 <Betty> no, me too
07:43:40 <Dave from B> Betty, I'm at work. No video stream of game
07:43:41 <Eric> Was horrible for me the last couple days.
07:43:56 <Eric> ohhh, I thought you meant geyser cam :-)
07:44:16 <Dave from B> Eric, I think they were talking about geyser stream
07:44:26 <Betty> I meant the geyser cam :-)
07:44:43 <Eric> ok :-)
07:44:59 <Betty> football is on tv
07:45:34 <Dave from B> Eric, when I'm at home one of these nights, I need your help (or kc's). I haven't been able to watch geyser streaming cam on my laptop since I've moved and since new cam has been installed.
07:48:47 <Eric> bring it to work...check if change of network makes a difference
07:49:19 <Eric> it's also possible that you need to update your flash.
07:49:24 <Dave from B> good idea. Will do.
07:49:35 <Dave from B> I did update Flash
07:52:13 <Eric> If your using windows, it could be a firewall issue
07:52:49 <Eric> the stream uses rtmp for the video stream which is transferred over different ports then normal web stuff.
07:53:07 <Dave from B> That is a change with new cam?
07:53:58 <Kevin L> Whole computer frooze.
07:54:47 <Eric> no, same protocal as old stream
07:55:16 <Eric> but it is coming from a different server.
07:55:30 <Dave from B> I will look at my firewall tonight.
07:55:35 <Eric> k
07:55:56 <Dave from B> Any idea if Paul is still going to attempt to put streaming on this page?
07:56:49 <Eric> He can't technically put it on this page because of the way the stream is hosted.
07:57:49 <Eric> Unfortunetly, the park service either doesn't want people having the stream on other pages, or is ignorant of the choice that pixelcaster, their streaming provider, has made.
07:58:13 <Eric> I am not sure which is the case.
07:58:45 <kc (working)> even good old frames would be an option
07:59:22 <Eric> ya, that is what I suggested to Paul...but he didn't like the "hack" idea.
08:00:18 <kc (working)> i have integrated gt into my own page, but not the stream - this works fine for me in a separate window
08:00:32 <Eric> I could setup a similar page to this with chat, video & GT listings if people were interested. I had been holding out hope that this page would get fixed at some point.
08:01:13 <Dave from B> At work, I actually like seperate windows but with my laptop at home, it would be nice to have all on one
08:01:30 <Eric> Lion
08:01:48 <kc (working)> little trickier with the wide screen view, but certainly do-able
08:01:53 <Eric> super minor?
08:02:16 <Eric> I like my geyser "dashboard" :-) with all 3 sitting there.
08:02:30 <Dave from B> I missed Lion...another minor
08:09:04 <Eric> Daisy
08:09:06 <Betty> Daisy
08:09:13 <Eric> jinx :-)
08:32:10 <Kevin L> of 1531
08:34:10 <kc (working)> omg this match is dull. 75 mins 1 save
08:34:14 <Graham> hello, here but not here
08:34:31 <kc (working)> hi virtual Graham
08:35:03 <Eric> LC
08:35:15 <Kevin L> I am not really here either. I think I am over there. >>>
08:35:52 <Dave from B> haha. Hi, Graham
08:36:22 <Eric> anenome
08:36:34 <Eric> big
08:38:42 <Dave from B> I would expect the tome of the game to start to change as we get near the end.
08:38:47 <Dave from B> tone
08:39:16 <Eric> sure you didn't mean tomb?
08:39:24 <Dave from B> :D
08:40:56 <Kevin L> I guess all the scoring allowed was done yesterday.
08:41:25 <Dave from B> Netherlans hasn't scored a goal in their last 201 minutes of play
08:43:33 <Dave from B> Is the crowd mostly cheering for the Netherlands?
08:45:58 <Kevin L> I think they are booing both sides.
09:02:03 <Dave from B> Time to og home. Have a good evening everyone!
09:02:11 <Dave from B> Or, go home if you prefer
09:03:16 <Kevin L> Sorry to see you og Dave
09:05:47 <Betty> bye
09:45:31 <Paul L.> ..
10:19:04 <Mel> I guess we should see and oblong in the next 2-3 hrs
10:42:14 <Mara> Go SC go!
10:42:56 <Mara> and Grand
10:42:58 <Mara> there's a Grand
10:43:41 <Kevin L> Nice.
10:44:13 <Mara> I have adequate timing today.
10:45:12 <Eric> 6 hour grand interval...nice :-)
10:51:36 <Mel> NOW OF 1751
10:53:18 <Mara> 2ND!
10:53:55 <Kevin L> yea!
10:54:51 <Mara> Slot
10:55:04 <Mara> err wait
10:55:11 <Mara> Plate
10:55:13 <Mara> I lied
10:55:19 <ynpvisitor71> Just checked in to see what was going on. Good timing
10:57:50 <Kevin L> Pretty healthy looking Plate.
11:00:02 <kcmule> that makes me hungry
11:05:01 <Eric> plate has been erupting pretty regularly...time for giantess?
11:06:19 <kcmule> no domes in a while either, fwiw
11:07:24 <Eric> Maybe she will wait for me to be there in August :-P
11:11:13 <kcmule> we have a Ball Cap Geyser report on gt, that's new
11:12:44 <Kevin L> I lost a ball cap on GH once. I wonder if that is it.
11:13:58 <kcmule> Pat S is sharp, i can see it on capture
11:17:34 <Eric> Can you share that clip on that GT report kc?
11:17:46 <Eric> I would like to see the reference for future spotting :-)
11:17:59 <kcmule> yep, workin on it
11:18:04 <Eric> awesome
11:23:56 <Eric> Jake needs to add ball cap into the database
11:24:04 <Eric> it's been reported enough times...
11:25:29 <Eric> hey kc, has anybody identified that geyser you had winter footage of with the bison walking across?
11:26:09 <kcmule>
11:27:21 <kcmule> which footage is that
11:27:43 <Eric> never mind, I see the comments now identifying it as unng between plate and slot.
11:28:55 <kcmule> pretty sure it is slot, back then was still in discussion
11:42:13 <Eric> Man, plate is really going strong in that video kc
11:42:42 <Eric> and amazing that ball cap was caught going...that is really hard to see.
11:45:01 <kcmule> we have a churn morning report up now too
11:50:55 <lt> ok, bad science joke time: what kind of fish is made of only two sodium atoms?
11:51:59 <lt> 2 Na
11:53:13 <kcmule> need to save fish jokes for when D from B is in the room
11:53:28 <lt> I'll try it out again tomorrow
11:53:57 <lt> I would have thought that would get me at least one groan. :)
12:32:16 <kcmule> slot ie
13:41:31 <ynpvisitor39> haha. A fish joke I haven't heard before.
14:21:22 <lt> lightning?
15:26:22 <ynpvisitor19> Hay, that bear has a head light
