18:26:54 <Betty> OF 0126
23:28:39 <Graham> glad to see the cam is back
23:33:26 <Graham> a 3b and 2b Grand recently, thats nice, two 3b eruptions now on GT
23:35:01 <Graham> Mara had a long night, near full moon, I am guessing it was clear for them to be out
23:38:01 <Graham> i bet they are making sure they don't miss the next F&M, may be the final one for some, doesn't Ryan have to leave soon?
00:16:05 <Graham> OF going on my stream, so probably erupted 5min ago?
00:16:29 <Graham> nope, i see my lag is 11m
00:19:00 <lc> morning
00:19:21 <lc> Graham, you getting the streaming?
00:20:54 <lc> anyone getting the streaming?
00:21:21 <Graham> I was getting it with a big lag, trying to refresh it now
00:22:01 <Graham> maybe that was a bad idea, not getting it now but not getting the error message either
00:22:20 <Graham> now i have it back
00:22:22 <ynpvisitor45> Going here, but don't know if there is a lag or not. Refreshing now.
00:22:50 <Graham> mine is pointing at BH
00:22:55 <lc> I could get a picture a while ago, now nothing
00:23:03 <Graham> not erupting
00:23:38 <Graham> I NEED A GEYSER FIX
00:24:09 <lc> all I get is 'stream loading'
00:24:49 <ynpvisitor45> Mine refreshed okay.
00:26:18 <Graham> it took several refreshes for me toget it back, may be taking a long time to load
00:27:39 <Graham> 20 days :)
00:29:05 <ynpvisitor45> Wow... that IS a long time for you computer to take to reload. :D
00:29:40 <Graham> hehe, thats what it is going to take to get the real real time feed
00:30:00 <ynpvisitor45> No lag then.
00:34:47 <lc> got a picture, ran about 5 sec a froze.
01:03:14 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
01:05:27 <Dave from B> Graham, you're fixing a geyser?:)
01:11:46 <lc> morning Dave
01:21:46 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
01:22:00 <Dave from B> Looks a little warmer at OF this morning
01:30:49 <Kevin L> Morning Dave
01:54:55 <Kevin L> It knows I have to leave in 20m. :p
01:57:40 <ynpvisitor24> Kevin, Dave or Graham, I'd assume its NPS who controls the camera but do any of you know more about its controls (i.e. who, from where, can it be done remotely)? Thanks.
02:03:09 <ynpvisitor77> it is controlled by volunteers outside the park, remotely thru software. it's on the faq on the nps page
02:08:36 <ynpvisitor24> thanks. i appreciate the "there are no plans to allow the general public to control" http://www.nps.gov/yell/photosmultimedia/knownwebcamproblems.htm
02:16:03 <Kevin L> Good luck with BH
02:18:05 <Dave from B> I'm afriad I will miss BH as well. Leaving at 1010
02:18:10 <Dave from B> afriad
02:18:17 <Dave from B> afraid
02:28:05 <Graham> back from my walk, did I miss anything - other than chat
02:28:19 <Dave from B> nope
02:28:47 <Graham> last OF didnt get logged
02:29:21 <Dave from B> I guess I missed OF
02:29:56 <Dave from B> At work....guess I haven't been paying very good attention to the cam
02:30:13 <Graham> you should slack off more
02:30:46 <Dave from B> I wish I could. Trying to get ahead before 4 night 25th Anniv Trip beginning next Saturday.
02:31:38 <Graham> yeah
02:31:47 <Graham> thats important, congrats
02:31:58 <Dave from B> Thanks
02:33:15 <Graham> Lion is splashy
02:38:41 <ynpvisitor77> depression
02:39:31 <Dave from B> lc 0939IE
02:41:04 <Graham> nixce
02:42:13 <Graham> some good Dep bursts
02:42:48 <Dave from B> Depression has been much stronger the past couple of weeks according to Mara and others in the field
02:43:58 <Graham> and Mara said the washing machine was going too, have not heard it for a while
02:44:45 <Dave from B> Graham, is this the longest stretch between park visits for you in quite awhile?
02:47:06 <Graham> looks like OF was 0846 based on 1019 prediction
02:47:47 <Graham> I have had several years with one winter and one Sept trip. 3 trips in a year is abnormal for me, so yes, its my usual long gap
02:48:31 <Graham> almost went for 4th July this year but had to back out
02:49:03 <Dave from B> How many nights is your next trip?
02:49:14 <Graham> 15
02:49:20 <Graham> my usual 2 weeks
02:49:41 <Graham> so much nicer than 1 - all rushed for 1 week but 2 you can spread it out
02:50:31 <Dave from B> I hope it do 2 weeks when I retire but that's a long ways off.
02:50:38 <Graham> first week is busy but get back into the rythm of gazing and then second week there are a lot fewer reports
02:50:58 <Graham> hard to get much time off with your business
02:51:43 <Dave from B> It's the tradeoff that you have to accept and live with.
02:52:31 <Graham> over 17 years i have only had to change my 2 week trip on one occasion. have scheduled it in the spring when i knew the fall would be busy at work too
02:53:34 <Graham> when i rescheduled it I went the last week in Sept and first in Oct - a lot quieter then but had good weather
02:53:49 <Dave from B> I'm glad that you take the time to go elsewhere as well. There are a lot of beautiful places in Us and the world.
03:00:59 <Graham> yeah i have been taking my mom somewhere else for a week each year so she gets to explore and see the wonders. we travel well together
03:01:28 <Graham> have not been beyond US and Canada for a long time tho, still lots to see here
03:06:07 <Dave from B> Where did you stay when you were in Yosemite?
03:08:06 <Graham> Yosemite Lodge at the Falls
03:08:49 <Graham> was nice we could sit outside the front door and watch the falls in the evening. from the room patio we could just see Half DOme
03:09:03 <Dave from B> Nice place. We stayed at Camp Kurry during our visit
03:09:16 <Dave from B> Curry
03:09:30 <Graham> I stayed there when i was traveling on my own. need a few more creature comforts now tho
03:09:45 <Dave from B> Yep
03:10:27 <Dave from B> It was nice talking with you, Graham. Time to head home. Have a great day!
03:10:41 <Graham> i messed up the reservation too and had to cobble the reservation together with cancellations the few weeks before we went, managed to get 4 nights in one good room
03:11:02 <Dave from B> That takes a lot of time and effort.
03:11:37 <Graham> yeah i was checking the web site multiple times a day. guite a bit of turnover 2 weks out
03:13:57 <Graham> bye Dave .. haha
03:25:00 <Graham> of on my stream now
03:25:44 <lc> it went 10 min ago here.

03:54:37 <ynpvisitor95> Will posted Oblong
03:54:39 <Graham> nope, Oblong posted to GT
03:55:07 <Graham> too early for Grand too, was looking at EDT :)
03:55:40 <lc> didn't look big enough for Oblong.
03:55:58 <Graham> i guess the humidity is down
04:10:59 <lc> looks like I have lost the streaming again.

06:15:08 <lt> looks like it
06:15:26 <ynpvisitor66> yeap.
06:15:41 <ynpvisitor66> 1314 ns, I think.
06:16:33 <ynpvisitor54> i agree. My stream is very jerky at the moment so i was not sure enough to call it.
06:17:26 <ynpvisitor66> Same here. There will probably be a good time from someone there, so I am not too worried about the time.
06:18:01 <Betty> even choppy over the pond
06:19:09 <ynpvisitor66> Is Graham around? Someone to send out alert?
06:21:08 <Betty> maybe we have to ding a bit ;-)
