00:24:42 <Jenna> ah man
00:29:47 <ynpvisitor33> Lion
00:46:27 <Craig> Going into the park soon
00:46:51 <Kevin L> Today?
00:47:12 <Craig> Yup! Leave in about a half hour from Ennis!
00:48:44 <Kevin L> Sounds fun
00:51:08 <Craig> Finally got myself a radio too!
00:53:01 <Kevin L> Makes the trip much better.
00:53:39 <ynpvisitor89> Radios are fun if there are gazers in the basin reporting what is going on.
00:54:39 <ynpvisitor89> Do you think that is Daisy along with Old Faithful
00:54:40 <Craig> Its channel 4.5 right?
00:55:07 <ynpvisitor89> Yes, 4.5
00:55:44 <Kevin L> Yes on both counts.
00:56:31 <Kevin L> OF is a short.
00:58:22 <ynpvisitor89> I thought so
00:58:53 <Craig> Oh and I saw the note on Plume and that is exactly what I saw on the 15th and 16th
01:21:53 <ynpvisitor33> Notes don't show up on a geysers info page. Any way GT can be tweaked to include that information?
01:25:09 <ynpvisitor33> That was good information on Plume, but had to go searching for it.
01:25:32 <ynpvisitor93> Notes on GT's are shown on the bottom of the page
01:26:20 <ynpvisitor33> They aren't on the individual geyser's information page though.
01:26:31 <ynpvisitor45> rumor is that notes will eventually be searchable and show up in search for the name, not just the date
01:26:38 <ynpvisitor33> Only on the bottom of a given date's page.
01:27:40 <ynpvisitor33> I was just surprised to not see them with the other data for Plume. If someone hadn't mentioned the last note on Plume, I wouldn't have known it was out there.
01:29:24 <ynpvisitor45> just check "previous day" daily and you can find stuff. If you wait a week it's too late
01:30:20 <ynpvisitor33> That is correct. Not everybody checks that frequently. Just seems that if information can be linked to the actual geyser, it would be more helpful.
01:31:33 <ynpvisitor33> A note attaced to the individual geyser's information page could also act as a reminder to others to check or follow up on something.
01:33:23 <ynpvisitor33> Depression?
01:34:18 <ynpvisitor33> I am not disparaging Jake and Will's efforts on GT. They are remarkable.
01:34:34 <ynpvisitor45> did you see my comment that eventually notes will be searchable, that will be good
01:35:12 <ynpvisitor33> I did. BUt would one have to know that there are notes? I just wonder why a link or box can't be added to the information pages?
01:35:27 <Kevin L> Depression is ie for sure.
01:35:34 <Kevin L> Good eye.
01:36:16 <ynpvisitor33> Very steamy this morning. Things are pretty easy to spot.
01:36:23 <ynpvisitor33> But, thank you.
01:36:51 <Kevin L> Bob in SLC has basin report of 0832
01:45:48 <Kevin L> Lion 0842 ie
01:56:47 <Kevin L> OF 0856
02:49:01 <ynpvisitor33> Oblong?
02:49:13 <Kevin L> I would assume Oblong
03:16:41 <kc (working)> castle maybe
03:23:39 <Dave from B> Good morning everyone!
03:23:56 <ynpvisitor46> hey Dave
03:24:50 <kc (working)> mornin
03:24:59 <Kevin L> About time you showed up.
03:25:06 <Kevin L> Castle ie.
03:25:30 <Dave from B> TRying to clean off my desk a bit first.
03:26:11 <Kevin L> You have plenty of time.
03:28:09 <Eric> Morning
03:28:15 <Dave from B> Hi, Eric
03:28:22 <Eric> Welcome back Dave :-)
03:28:39 <Dave from B> So, not sure exactly sure what to tell you about Becca's soccer tryouts.
03:28:40 <Eric> Your pleasant banter has been missed.
03:28:51 <Dave from B> Thanks, Eric
03:29:25 <Kevin L> Usually typing works best here Dave.
03:29:34 <Dave from B> So far, there are 10 official varsity players...so it appears the coach is going to wait a few days to pick the remaining 6-8 players.
03:29:37 <Dave from B> :)
03:30:16 <Dave from B> Becca has been told she will be playing both JV and Varisty until he is convinced her back is 100%.
03:30:17 <Eric> My image here seems "nicer" than normal.
03:30:37 <Eric> Nice.
03:30:54 <Jimbo> I wonder how many people on the OF boardwalk are looking at this great Castle eruption?
03:31:27 <Dave from B> Signs are encouraging from Becca's standpoint. 2 senior players who played 3 years of JV at Becca's position were cut.
03:31:40 <Kevin L> I am guessing we can call this one a major.
03:31:59 <Dave from B> Jimbo, I agree. Most are too busy staring at OF.
03:32:04 <Eric> What determines a castle major?
03:32:14 <Dave from B> Daisy 1032ie
03:32:14 <Eric> Daisy...
03:32:15 <ynpvisitor33> Daisy
03:32:40 <Dave from B> Eric, 15 minutes is the point at which Castle is declared a major.
03:32:41 <Jimbo> Wow, Daisy too and big spikes from Sawmill
03:33:17 <Eric> I saw sawmill do something the other day that I had never seen. It had a sustained eruption...not just bursting. How abnormal is that?
03:33:51 <ynpvisitor33> A Castle major will have a steam phase at about the 12-15m mark too.
03:33:52 <Eric> It had a continous jet that looked maybe 6-8 ft high.
03:34:15 <Jimbo> Dave from B, where do you live? My daughter plays soccer too.
03:34:16 <Eric> OF 1034
03:35:21 <Eric> Turban?
03:37:39 <ynpvisitor33> Nice panorama.
03:38:39 <Mara> steam, steam everywhere
03:40:04 <Jimbo> Can we ask the rangers to put some of that energy under Geyser Hill?
03:41:52 <Dave from B> ..
03:41:55 <Kevin L> Hwo saw teh vacasion Dave?
03:42:00 <Dave from B> Jimbo, my daughter plays in Billings montana
03:42:07 <Dave from B> :D
03:42:33 <Dave from B> The vacation was very relaxing. Had a great time visiting spots from 25 years ago.
03:42:41 <Jimbo> Guess we won't be playing against each other. I'm in Maryland.
03:42:58 <Dave from B> No, we travel aways but not that far!
03:44:37 <lc> Dave was your anniversary last week?
03:45:50 <Dave from B> Yes, anniversary was the 19th
03:46:18 <lc> thought it was close to ours.
03:46:28 <lc> 18th
03:46:55 <Dave from B> My parents was the 20th...lots of weddings in August!
03:47:21 <lc> yep, I know several
03:47:43 <Dave from B> Kevin, you'll never guess who I bumped into when we stublemd upon the Lake Tahoe Summit!
03:47:44 <lc> 47 years
03:47:56 <Dave from B> Congrats, lc!
03:48:21 <lc> thanks, and to you and M.
03:48:55 <Dave from B> Thanks...Are you finally feeling better?
03:49:22 <Kevin L> My parents was the 17th.
03:49:27 <lc> yes, almost back to normal.
03:49:56 <Dave from B> That's great, lc...took awhile to shake that bug
03:50:18 <lc> over two weeks
03:56:37 <Kevin L> It appears my shift is over.
03:56:51 <Dave from B> ??
03:57:02 <Kevin L> Darn. There was so much action today.
03:57:19 <Kevin L> I was guest driving.
03:57:35 <Dave from B> ok...thought maybe took controls without you knowing
03:58:19 <Kevin L> I wasn't sure how long I was supposed to do it. Get to defrost the freezer now. :p
03:58:38 <Dave from B> I'd rather drive
03:58:45 <Dave from B> Have fun, Kevin
04:03:50 <lc> http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=24113d89dfd8
04:04:23 <lc> this is interesting.
04:04:44 <lc> 2 min video.
04:07:46 <Dave from B> wow
04:07:55 <ynpvisitor33> Ouch
04:08:03 <Dave from B> I bet he couldn't do that again if he tried.
04:08:19 <ynpvisitor33> I bet he doesn't even try though.
04:09:27 <lc> if Kevin comes back I want him to watch that.
04:11:56 <Eric> omg...that was painful to watch!
04:12:14 <lc> I agree
04:12:22 <ynpvisitor33> Nice of tourists to pinpoint bison location.
04:12:30 <Dave from B> Probably not. He needed a helmet
04:12:55 <Eric> I can't tell how close they are to that bison.
04:13:20 <ynpvisitor33> Closer than 50 feet.
04:13:39 <Eric> I hope he doesn't get pissed off.
04:15:02 <Kevin L> At least they didn't need to shave his head for the stitches.
04:17:15 <Eric> ricochet is dangerous....my brother got wacked in the knee as a kid by a neighboors shotgun pellet ricochet.
04:19:43 <Kevin L> I got tagged by one of my own shots once. Makes me a LOT more careful of the background when I am shooting.
04:29:54 <Eric> SC ie
04:30:13 <Eric> Turban
04:50:22 <Eric> Noticed the Plume note on GT...we should keep our eyes on that :-)
04:52:10 <Dave from B> Eric, thanks for alerting me...hadn't seen that
04:52:54 <Eric> Also, we have in basin Turban times....woop
04:53:17 <Dave from B> Turban is due
04:53:28 <Eric> yep
04:53:37 <Eric> So is Grand ;-)
04:54:09 <ynpvisitor67> Dave, are you back at work?
04:54:09 <Ryan> Have to figure out where I would put it, but Plume has been splashing like that for about two or three weeks now.
04:54:12 <Dave from B> Yes...I'm gonna jink it...No Grand intervals over 8 hours in at least a week.
04:54:33 <Dave from B> 67, Yes, I'm back at work. Got home at midnight last night
04:54:33 <ynpvisitor67> last night was almost 8
04:54:47 <Dave from B> Turban
04:54:53 <Eric> Thats a lot of steam from Turban
04:55:27 <ynpvisitor67> it would be best if notes on a geyser showed up in the geyser interval link
04:55:32 <Eric> Confirmed 1152 Turban on GT
04:56:21 <ynpvisitor67> no Grand at least
04:56:36 <Eric> nope
04:56:36 <Ryan> 67, not particularly. The notes need to be on the day page, elsewise most wont see them. Putting them in the interval file no longer makes the not a standalone event.
04:56:50 <Eric> Ya, notes tend to get lost if you don't see them day of.
04:56:59 <Dave from B> Hi, Ryan
04:57:05 <Dave from B> Thanks for the Plume info
04:57:21 <ynpvisitor67> well if it is posted under PLUME say, the day someone writes the note, everyone would see it there, as if it were an eruption, and then it would not disappear
04:57:26 <Eric> I was there a couple weeks ago and plume was bone dry
04:59:13 <Eric> Guess I shouldn't say bone dry, it was definitely NOT splashing with any kind of visible water.
04:59:56 <Ryan> It is posted under Plume, as a note. It is not an eruption, therefore it is not put in with the eruption.
05:00:17 <Ryan> a note is a note, not an eruption time.
05:00:34 <Eric> Right, but when you click on the geyser, it doesn't show you any notes for history
05:00:43 <Eric> like attachments all show up
05:00:52 <ynpvisitor67> well, I just looked up PLUME and there is no note of the note
05:01:04 <ynpvisitor67> so it is not posted under it
05:01:10 <ynpvisitor67> only a note on the day of
05:01:23 <Dave from B> If it could be treated like an attahment that would be great
05:01:24 <Eric> I think it is 67, it's just that they are not showing it correctly.
05:01:39 <Ryan> Then we can fix that, it is attached but not showing.
05:01:44 <Eric> If Jake pops back on maybe he could add it easily.
05:01:56 <ynpvisitor67> we can fix that?
05:02:14 <Ryan> We? Yes we, I am with Will and Jake now.
05:02:27 <Eric> Oh, then fix it :-P
05:02:32 <Eric> haha
05:02:32 <Ryan> I believe it is attached, if it is then displaying it might just eb a bug.
05:02:40 <ynpvisitor67> Will and Jake are in PA?
05:02:53 <Eric> I guess Ryan ran back to the park?
05:03:07 <ynpvisitor67> maybe they are video conferencing
05:03:09 <Ryan> If it is not attached then Jake and Will will have to look into it because thats gonna be some major code writing.
05:03:27 <ynpvisitor67> well check it out, it is not attached, nor is any note
05:03:37 <Ryan> Or, ya know, we can work together across three time zones :) Phones and internet are wonderful.
05:04:17 <Ryan> I did check it out, on the surface it is not attached. Likewise on the surface every entry is listed as "Plume" or "Beehive", but in code it is listed as numbers (codes for geysers).
05:04:25 <ynpvisitor67> Tilt's Baby would most likely have more notes than eruptions listed though...
05:04:43 <Ryan> What you see on the webpage is not what is necessarily what is written behind it.
05:04:46 <Eric> Which is fine if it just shows the latest notes.
05:04:53 <Mara> I let him borrow the teleporter that definitely exists and is a real thing
05:04:55 <ynpvisitor67> well we are talking about how does the common person, using GT, see a note, the day after it is written
05:05:06 <Eric> Can I borrow that Mara?
05:05:08 <ynpvisitor33> Notes should be noted on the individual geyser's info page like "attachments" are.
05:05:27 <Eric> Exactly 33
05:05:39 <ynpvisitor67> Jake knows the NOTE feature needs work
05:05:41 <Mara> sure, Eric - just, if anyone asks, it's a toaster
05:05:45 <Ryan> At the moment they have to go to the day it was posted. It *should* be with the geyser.
05:05:45 <ynpvisitor33> Some notes are timely and useful only for a given day. Others, like the Plume data have more meaning days and weeks out.
05:05:59 <Eric> got it...maybe a hot water heater or a snowcone maker.
05:06:06 <ynpvisitor67> OF
05:06:08 <lt> just not a phone booth?
05:06:25 <ynpvisitor67> no toasters at school for you Mara
05:06:32 <Eric> no capes!
05:06:43 <lt> where's a police box when you need one
05:07:06 <Eric> lt, are you a Dr. Who fan?
05:07:23 <lt> not necessarily, but I spend enough time on the Internet to know references anyway
05:07:28 <Ryan> For the record:
05:07:33 <Mara> I'll have to adapt the dorm floor's toaster...
05:08:02 <ynpvisitor67> Mara will be transporting herself during her free periods, to Anenome, or Depression...
05:08:06 <lt> I don't miss dorm living. no cats.
05:08:08 <Ryan> We need t work on the notes, and all of the suggestions you have all posted are being looked into and worked on. I am simply trying to tell you that some of it may just be bugs in the existing code.
05:08:22 <ynpvisitor67> thanks, that is good news
05:08:58 <Dave from B> Thanks, Ryan
05:09:07 <ynpvisitor67> Dave, did you have fun?
05:09:14 <Mara> overnight F&M shifts between studying and sleeping... yup
05:09:26 <ynpvisitor67> oh, moving from the little ones...
05:10:03 <Dave from B> 67, probably the most relaxing trip I've had in a long time. Really didn't have much in the way of things planned beforehand. It was great!
05:10:30 <lt> we missed our Davespeak
05:10:37 <Dave from B> I attempted to see cb but we missed connections by about an hour.
05:10:40 <lt> Kevin and Graham tried to fill in for you
05:12:21 <Mara> Heh, are you kidding? Angle is tiny 95% of the time.
05:13:12 <Eric> Turban and/or Grand?
05:13:50 <Eric> Guess just another Turban.
05:16:48 <Eric> Maybe Grand 1230
05:21:27 <Eric> Hey mom, take a picutre of me riding the bison!
05:21:54 <Mara> and then subsequent pictures of me being flung into the air
05:22:05 <Eric> haha
05:22:33 <Eric> Always wanted to be a rodeo clown :-P
05:24:22 <Ryan> In convo with Will, they *are* attached to the geyser. they have to be because they are under the same geyser ID.
05:24:56 <Ryan> they do not however show up on the geyser's [age because they have not been programmed to do so yet, but looking at our agenda it is something that is planned and will be worked on.
05:25:23 <Ryan> As for when it will be done I do not know, it is currently not at the tip-top of our priority list.
05:26:22 <Mara> thanks for doing what you do :)
05:27:06 <Ryan> To do so will probably require reformatting most of the individual geyser page. We might have to put in a whole column section of notes similar to eruption times and we are nto sure how we want to go about that.
05:27:15 <Ryan> Thanks, Mara. Will, Jake, and I appreciate it.
05:30:59 <Eric> Ryan, You might want to think about a tabbed interface for each geyser. Eruptions | Notes | Attachments
05:31:10 <Eric> and possibly Info
05:31:45 <Eric> That way you are not overlaoding your UI with to much info at once.
05:32:27 <Ryan> That is another option.
05:32:49 <Ryan> I like that option the most, though all require a lot of planning and work :D
05:33:07 <Eric> I do this for a living, day in and out...so I hear ya :-)
05:33:17 <ynpvisitor92> That is what long winter nights are for
05:33:30 <Eric> The other thing the tabs do is make the mobile navigation a lot easier.
05:33:37 <Ryan> Noooooo.... long winter nights are for aving and rocket building!!
05:34:09 <Dave from B> haha
05:34:18 <ynpvisitor92> I guess a 45 degree cave is warm in winter
05:34:21 <Ryan> caving*
05:34:27 <Ryan> 55!
05:34:30 <Eric> Might want to look a bootstrap ui framework...it could make your lives a LOT easier :-)
05:36:53 <Eric> Did anybody notice a Turban?
05:40:46 <ynpvisitor67> so Grand will be over 8 hours in 5 minutes
05:40:56 <ynpvisitor67> must be because Dave is back
05:41:13 <Eric> haha
05:41:13 <lt> it's waiting. Dave will have to leave, and it will go in 20 minutes
05:42:26 <Dave from B> That would be an over 11 hour interval...let's hope not.
05:42:37 <Dave from B> How about if I go downstairs and grab my lunch?
05:42:42 <Eric> Grand 1248
05:43:13 <lt> that might work, Dave.
05:43:41 <Dave from B> I better hurry, then!
05:45:10 <ynpvisitor92> lt, did you figure out the problem with you connection?
05:46:10 <Eric> Another Turban?
05:46:28 <Eric> or excess steam?
05:47:00 <lt> near as I can tell, there were some routing issues with my upstream host last night.
05:47:18 <lt> I could access the Internet, but it was wonky enough that the stream wouldn't load. finally started working again around midnight.
05:47:47 <ynpvisitor92> Just in time for BH
05:47:48 <ynpvisitor67> has Grand been posted twice here now with no Grand?
05:48:08 <lt> if you've checked the times, 67, Eric's been making predictions
05:48:11 <ynpvisitor92> Guesses of time, look at the times and the log time
05:48:43 <ynpvisitor67> oh, ok, they stopped posting Turbans from basin I see
05:48:49 <ynpvisitor92> I think it went when you were all looking at bison.
05:49:10 <ynpvisitor67> ha, maybe no one in basin posted it then, seems to be a few gazers there
05:49:39 <lt> the bison must have got them all
05:50:36 <Dave from B> I think Grand is still due
05:51:18 <CO Dave> I really need lunch...
05:51:34 <lt> your name is Dave, you can probably leave and that will make Grand go
05:51:43 <CO Dave> Grand, do you hear me? I'm going to lunch now...
05:51:43 <Dave from B> :D:D
05:51:44 <Eric> Grand is still due...look at my post times and the Grand Times...they are all in the future :-)
05:51:48 <CO Dave> stage whispers...
05:52:10 <Eric> You really have to leave for it to work CO Dave :-P
05:52:42 <Eric> I guess we have an 8+ hour Grand interval now
05:53:18 <CO Dave> Hey, it worked on BHI last week... :-)
05:53:24 <lt> Eric broke it.
05:53:39 <ynpvisitor92> Possible if some of those misbehaving vents are doing things
05:55:10 <Ryan> The only "guru" gazing method I found that seems to work is to have at least three people staring at Norris Pool between the ten minutes from High and Gold on to "OH MY GOD!"
05:55:43 <Mara> one of them has to be really sleep deprived
05:55:44 <CO Dave> K, seriously I'm getting lunch. Y'all are welcome in advance. I can't take it anymore.
05:55:57 <lt> enjoy food! we'll enjoy Grand
05:56:00 <lt> ;)
05:56:00 <Ryan> One has to refuse to turn and look.
05:56:31 <ynpvisitor92> Someone needs to rig up a smart phone on the back side of the grand sign so it streams video. that way we woul dknow what is going on
05:56:32 <Ryan> And a fourth has to be going, "The levels look good, they still look good, they look better, they look GREAT, they look REALLY #$^$^$^ing GOOD!"
06:02:41 <ynpvisitor67> almost looks like it is snowing there
06:03:23 <Ryan> Well, off for food/snacks, then the last class of the day, and then the first rocketry meeting of the year :D
06:03:51 <lt> fantastically moody weather. makes me remember that places that have weather exist.
06:03:51 <Kevin L> Have fun Ryan. No Grand yet?
06:03:58 <Dave from B> Bye and thanks, Ryan!:)
06:04:48 <ynpvisitor67> not a fun Grand sit today
06:07:06 <Eric> SC ie
06:11:14 <CO Dave> Hey I made it!
06:11:17 <lt> Daisy
06:11:48 <ynpvisitor67> VEC window ends at 1330
06:12:00 <CO Dave> Not that we will be able to see much.
06:12:45 <Dave from B> CO Dave, you weren't gone long enough!:)
06:13:08 <lt> SC acknowledged your efforts though
06:13:15 <Kevin L> Yiou are the one that jinxed it Dave.
06:13:21 <CO Dave> Well I only obtained food, haven't actually eaten it yet...
06:13:41 <ynpvisitor92> It will take a 2 Dave escape
06:13:47 <Dave from B> :D
06:14:02 <Dave from B> I'm stubborn today...not leaving.
06:14:30 <lt> well that and it's how many hours until quitting time?
06:14:30 <ynpvisitor92> Turban, grand next
06:16:37 <ynpvisitor67> stubborn Grand
06:16:57 <lt> performance anxiety
06:17:11 <CO Dave> Grand and DfB are going to have a standoff, like the northbound Zax and southbound Zax.
06:17:12 <Dave from B> stagefright?
06:17:30 <ynpvisitor67> DFB?
06:17:41 <Dave from B> haha
06:17:55 <Dave from B> Grand, I will go away if you turn Plume back on
06:18:09 <ynpvisitor67> Dave just wants small gestures
06:24:31 <lt> looks like there are a few folks there waiting
06:24:45 <lt> so I don't think we missed it
06:28:01 <CO Dave> Food done. Going to make a cup of tea. Maybe this time.
06:28:18 <lt> Riverside?
06:31:08 <lt> downbasin definitely decided it wanted to be steamy all of a sudden
06:31:33 <Dave from B> Grotto and Riverside?
06:31:52 <Dave from B> We are in the F&M window.
06:33:17 <lt> yeah, I ...don't know. it's a steamy day.
06:33:57 <ynpvisitor92> Grand start?
06:34:07 <lt> event cycle posted for F&M at 1149.
06:34:31 <lt> Grotto is up at 1330
06:34:52 <lt> and Riverside at 1327, so probably just those two
06:35:19 <lt> Turban posted at 1332
06:36:30 <CO Dave> That probably makes 8 Turbans so far then.
06:37:44 <Dave from B> No one is going to tell the peeps at Grand it is my fault...right?
06:38:07 <lt> haha
06:43:36 <Eric> OF
06:43:43 <Eric> Still no Grand...wow
06:43:59 <Dave from B> No 8 hour Grand this time
06:44:05 <ynpvisitor33> Depression ?
06:44:06 <Mara> No Grand yet...... no Grand yet
06:45:03 <Eric> I guess VEC missed their window too then.
06:45:51 <Kevin L> Send Dave back to Tahoe!
06:46:03 <Eric> haha
06:46:13 <Dave from B> :P
06:46:15 <Eric> I guess will is out at F&M
06:50:55 <ynpvisitor27> that explains why Turban times stopped, they were at F & M
06:53:21 <ynpvisitor92> Looks like there is a hole in the clouds
06:54:02 <ynpvisitor27> is that Rift?
06:54:13 <lt> another Turban posted at 1351
06:54:49 <CO Dave> West. Triplet.
07:03:25 <ynpvisitor27> looks nice there now
07:03:59 <Dave from B> I'm getting a feeling that the next Turban is it.
07:04:28 <ynpvisitor27> maybe Grand was waiting for the sun to come out
07:06:36 <ynpvisitor92> I think we will see a bh before grand
07:09:22 <ynpvisitor27> there we go
07:09:23 <lt> Grand, pretty sure
07:09:37 <ynpvisitor27> yes, lt
07:10:14 <ynpvisitor27> steamy Grand
07:10:18 <Dave from B> Grand 1409
07:10:22 <lt> I normally do like to see a spike before I call it for certain. :)
07:10:26 <ynpvisitor27> nice shoots though
07:10:44 <ynpvisitor27> I saw it go up, it is distinctive
07:11:18 <ynpvisitor27> nice spikes now
07:11:24 <lt> yep
07:11:45 <ynpvisitor27> blue sky on horizon too
07:11:47 <lt> good news for Dave, he'll be able to go home now!
07:11:57 <ynpvisitor27> he has to work a bit longer I think
07:12:16 <Dave from B> Have to make up for missing 3 days
07:15:46 <Dave from B> I love the closeups with the new camera!
07:16:49 <CO Dave> Nice and steady today. No motion sickness.
07:17:28 <ynpvisitor27> good chance for 2nd here
07:17:39 <CO Dave> voila
07:17:45 <lt> nice
07:17:46 <CO Dave> big
07:17:46 <ynpvisitor27> very nice
07:18:39 <lt> wind has picked up, it looks like
07:18:51 <lt> enough to move the steam more, anyway
07:19:46 <Dave from B> How about 3?
07:19:49 <ynpvisitor27> nice long 2nd
07:19:57 <ynpvisitor27> think 2nd is too long
07:20:10 <ynpvisitor27> could happen though...
07:20:50 <ynpvisitor27> what was the interval?
07:20:50 <Dave from B> Not likely now
07:21:03 <Dave from B> 9:24
07:21:08 <ynpvisitor27> wow
07:21:28 <ynpvisitor27> nice show Grand
07:22:14 <ynpvisitor92> Dave can go and unload the fish he left in the truck hours ago
07:22:27 <Dave from B> :D
07:22:39 <Dave from B> That's what the smell is
07:22:49 <lt> haha
07:24:15 <Mara> well, I'm out for a while to run some errands
07:24:22 <Mara> bye~
07:24:33 <Dave from B> bye, Mara
07:51:08 <Ryan> Looks like it cleared up nicely. Hope they get F&M today.
07:53:54 <Kevin L> Hope we get a BH today.
08:00:18 <Dave from B> Should get one but who knows when
08:07:39 <ynpvisitor27> Go F & M, before dark!!
08:15:06 <Dave from B> OF 1514ie
08:17:09 <Dave from B> Was that a short or did I miss a lot of the start?
08:21:19 <Dave from B> Short per GT
08:26:38 <ynpvisitor27> glad the day got nicer there
08:27:08 <Eric> yes, for sure. It was pretty ugly for a while
08:40:04 <Dave from B> Oblong?
08:40:26 <Dave from B> I believe it is...wind blowing steam to the right
08:45:29 <Eric> Lion ie
08:45:36 <Eric> LC ie
08:45:57 <Eric> Maybe initial warmup?
08:46:27 <Eric> What a weird lion
08:47:20 <Eric> there we go....nice solid lion
08:47:26 <Eric> definitely ini
08:56:17 <Kevin L> daisy
08:57:34 <Dave from B> DAISY
08:59:34 <Kevin L> Sure it isn't dAISY or maybe Diasy?
09:00:52 <Dave from B> You know me all too well...Those are both acceptable misspellings for Daisy
09:02:02 <Eric> diazy
09:02:17 <Eric> Anemone
09:02:31 <Eric> possibly little
09:10:20 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Enjoy BH everyone!
09:11:31 <Kevin L> Later
09:14:39 <ynpvisitor72> nice close-up preplay--thanks
09:20:10 <Graham> Go F&M Go
09:20:42 <ynpvisitor72> Hope youget to see it
09:21:53 <Kevin L> About time you showed up.
09:22:15 <Eric> hahaha
09:22:50 <Eric> Kevin/Graham, home many times have you been in the park at the same time?
09:25:38 <Kevin L> Twice I think.
09:26:03 <Kevin L> Maybe only once.
09:26:57 <Eric> Got it...didn't know if you were one of those groups that always picks the same weeks in the park or not....
09:27:06 <Graham> yeah only once or twice
09:27:18 <Graham> Kevin doesn't visit for long
09:27:43 <Eric> BTW, there was a bison sitting to the left of SC near the BW
09:28:35 <Graham> nice, i guess the bears have gone now, one was on GH yesterday
09:30:46 <Eric> Looked like a big bull, not really caring about the rut
09:31:10 <Eric> Let the young studs do all the work :-P
09:36:10 <Graham> wow F&M event with one MV splash
09:36:23 <Graham> guess its waiting till dark today or tomorrow
09:39:13 <ynpvisitor5> I sure hope nobody was out babysitting F&M last night. Unless they were just there for the fun of it.
09:39:21 <Kevin L> Bet there are a few people out there tonight.
09:47:27 <Graham> its always fun :)
09:48:28 <Graham> maybe around day 8 it gets harder to figure out why its still fun
09:55:59 <Kevin L> Applies to BH too.
09:56:55 <Graham> not very often you have to wait that long. Aurum maybe :)
09:58:47 <Kevin L> Aurum for sure
09:59:36 <Graham> what day do you want it to erupt this fall Kevin?
10:01:09 <Eric> getting a scrubb
10:01:14 <Eric> a dubb dubb
10:01:31 <lt> looks like Lion
10:01:32 <Eric> look down and say thanks :-P
10:01:42 <ynpvisitor5> Lion 17:01
10:01:53 <kc (working)> wow, daily thing now?
10:02:23 <Kevin L> Wish they would try Rain X.
10:03:28 <Eric> Can we zoom toward lion/BHI
10:03:44 <Eric> please.....
10:03:59 <Kevin L> I am hoping to get Aurum more than once. Should be interesting with the munchkin. We got her a harness and leash. Figured she would hate it. She cried when herr Mom took it off. She will walk around the house with it on holding the leash and like to take walks with it on outside.
10:04:29 <Graham> thats good.
10:04:41 <Graham> how is she at going round and round in circles waiting for Aurum?
10:04:46 <Kevin L> I don't know if there is a driver on tonight Eric.
10:05:03 <Eric> Can't you and Graham both drive?
10:05:18 <lt> they might not be on shift though.
10:05:21 <ynpvisitor5> Aurum is a tough wait. Even for many grown-ups.
10:05:29 <Kevin L> I figure we will probably spend a lot of time pacing between Doublet & Aurum.
10:06:08 <Graham> just dont leave Aurum
10:06:20 <ynpvisitor5> Though the splashing just might be the right size to be endlessly fascinating to a munchkin. There's hope.
10:06:41 <Kevin L> We can't just take it when it isn't out shift. I am in & out working on stuff so I can't do too much tonight anyway.
10:06:50 <Graham> then she will pitch a fit when it erupts
10:07:21 <Graham> i am supposed to be packing tonight, at least figuring out how many things need to be charged up
10:07:32 <Kevin L> I think she will like the splashing on it. She really likes to be outside so that is a plus.
10:07:51 <lt> ah, the joys of traveling with modern electronics
10:10:24 <Kevin L> We found a tiny microwave that is perfect for the cabin. It will work great to heat up the bottles and such.
10:12:54 <Graham> I think I have 6 or 7 things to charge
10:13:21 <Graham> depends how many flashlights i take
10:13:48 <Eric> you a flashaholic Graham?
10:14:55 <Kevin L> I found a really cool led thing at Harbor Freight. Has either 3 or 27 leds and a magnet or a hook. I hang it on a loop on my pack when I am walking. Takes 3 AAA batteries and they always last me the whole week.
10:16:14 <Kevin L> http://www.harborfreight.com/27-led-portable-worklightflashlight-69567-8869.html
10:17:46 <Eric> I picked up this new light, this spring: http://www.dxsoul.com/product/ultrafire-7xt6-7-x-cree-xm-l-t6-3-mode-4200lm-white-flashlight-w-strap-black-4-x-18650-901285522#.U_Z9_9YyDRE
10:17:52 <Graham> yes Eric, I have the Sun, the bright light, the one that lasts longer, the headlamp, and a small lamp
10:18:57 <Eric> 4200 Lumens :-P It's not really that bright...but that sucker is bright!
10:19:32 <Eric> It has 7 XML T6 Cree LEDs in it.
10:19:47 <Eric> and 4 18650 Lithium batteries.
10:21:09 <Graham> yeah there are a bunch of high power ones now. i have a fenix
10:21:27 <lt> hah I have one like that Kevin. we keep it mounted on the fridge
10:22:28 <Kevin L> I have several in my shop, in my cars, and my bedrooms. I am thinking of using them for model railroad lighting.
10:23:06 <Kevin L> Had to work under a sink and the magnets were a godsend.
10:26:22 <lt> might think about getting another one or two. something to keep in the bedroom in case of emergency would be good.
10:28:26 <Kevin L> They work great. Used them more than once.

10:45:37 <lt> yep
10:45:52 <Kevin L> Finally!
10:46:20 <Eric> wooohooo
10:46:33 <Eric> Anemone is gushing in excitement too
10:47:13 <Eric> Wish we had an operator :-(
10:47:44 <lt> OF is due soon, from the indicator. wouldn't make too much difference
10:48:10 <Eric> we could half these field of view still...
10:48:43 <lt> eh, about this time yesterday my stream didn't want to work at all. I'll take what I can get. :)
10:48:44 <Eric> looks like OF will complete before BH
10:48:51 <Eric> fingers crossed
10:49:37 <Graham> did someone call?
10:49:58 <Eric> yep, I got a txt
10:50:07 <lt> kc did
10:50:23 <Eric> take control Graham :-P
10:51:33 <Eric> The clouds and lighting are pretty dramatic
10:52:33 <Graham> of is due so cant zoom in
10:53:04 <Tammy> I guess it could be a dual, but I sure hope OF goes before BH. Fingers crossed!
10:53:18 <Eric> Agreed Tammy
10:53:41 <Eric> Thank you Camera gods
10:53:46 <Eric> that is perfect
10:54:39 <Tammy> From further away it looked like all the people by BH were wearing black jackets, but closer up, you can see that's not the case. And, yes, Eric, you're right that this view is perfect.
10:56:08 <Eric> Having all those OF viewers in the frame causes the image to go really bad due to compression now working with all the colors/movement.
10:56:31 <Eric> Not only is it closer, you get a MUCH better image.
10:56:44 <Eric> useing less bandwidth
10:59:59 <Eric> BH 1759
11:00:09 <Tammy> Looks like BH is going to beat OF.
11:01:56 <kc (working)> ty, i am hung up here at work
11:07:33 <Tammy> Lovely to see you all for BH viewing. I've got to take off now, but I hope you all have a great night!
11:07:42 <Tammy> Or chat with you all as the cue may be.
11:07:45 <Tammy> * case
11:10:45 <Graham> a second event cycle posted
11:12:34 <Graham> OF almost to 2h
11:14:13 <Graham> OF 1813, 1h59m interval :(
11:23:02 <Kevin L> Daisy.
11:23:27 <kcmule> 1822
11:27:15 <kcmule> not much left til next Lion, aurum perhaps

12:35:51 <kcmule> OF 19:35
12:36:28 <ynpvisitor55> poof
12:36:37 <ynpvisitor71> There goes the scrub job.
12:36:49 <ynpvisitor55> oh, did someone scrub it today?
12:37:02 <kcmule> interesting last 3 OF intervals
12:37:04 <ynpvisitor71> Aurum?
12:37:08 <ynpvisitor55> needs to be a daily assignment almost
12:37:41 <ynpvisitor71> Got cleaned 2 days in a row.
12:37:59 <ynpvisitor55> wow, yesterday it was pretty slimed
12:38:13 <ynpvisitor55> glad someone is cleaning it
12:39:18 <ynpvisitor55> someone cleaned it yesterday too?
12:39:33 <Kevin L> Yes.
12:40:08 <ynpvisitor55> that is good news
12:50:48 <kcmule> riverside msybe
13:02:29 <kcmule> Lion 20:02
13:02:47 <ynpvisitor55> Lion
13:08:07 <ynpvisitor55> wonder how long the next Grand interval will be?
13:09:54 <Kevin L> Long enough we won't see it.
13:12:20 <ynpvisitor55> I think it will be before dark
13:12:32 <ynpvisitor55> though dark may be sooner with this weather
13:14:07 <Kevin L> Think dark is about 1h away today.
13:35:06 <ynpvisitor55> quite the bank of steam right now
13:37:51 <ynpvisitor55> is that Riverside?
13:38:54 <ynpvisitor55> F & M?
13:40:25 <ynpvisitor55> that would be great if that is F & M
13:40:31 <ynpvisitor55> during the light
13:41:51 <ynpvisitor55> that is a LOT of steam...
13:42:48 <ynpvisitor28> Someone spilled their thermos of coffee
13:43:19 <ynpvisitor55> we will hear about it if it is F & M
13:45:08 <ynpvisitor55> that would be a nice short interval too
13:52:47 <kcmule> daisy 20:52
13:55:11 <lt> looks like the steam at 2035 may have been artemisia
13:55:30 <lt> it's up on GT @2033ie
14:00:13 <lt> appears Grotto is going again
14:05:57 <ynpvisitor55> thanks lt
14:06:10 <ynpvisitor55> figured they would have chimed in if it was F & M
14:06:22 <ynpvisitor55> too bad, could be a cold, wet night out there if they are keeping vigil
14:07:12 <ynpvisitor55> Lion
