00:13:56 <Paul L.> A bit foggy out this morning
00:38:36 <ynpvisitor18> good set of overnight times DaveM, thanks
00:39:56 <DaveM> I'm trying a new program that allows me to automatically post streaming catureps to YouTube.
00:41:01 <DaveM> I'm trying to determine how I can do this in a useful way.
00:41:41 <DaveM> You should be able to find that last few days at
00:42:59 <DaveM> Let me know if you have any ideas
00:46:18 <Dave from B> Hello everyone
00:47:39 <Dave from B> Yes, thanks DaveM....your overnight posts make gazing much easier for all of us cam watchers!:)
00:49:28 <Paul L.> Morning Dave
00:51:17 <Dave from B> Not foggy enough to miss the spider's victim
01:02:06 <Dave from B> Morning CO Dave
01:02:41 <Dave from B> Ever have a day where you waste the first hour of work and it seems to ruin your whole day....!@#$@$#%stupid airport
01:06:14 <lc> morning
01:06:26 <CO Dave> yeah... I've got three people who all have the word "manager" in their job titles trying to divvy up my equipment for a process that they don't know how to do and will not ever do themselves... And not one their three ideas agrees with any other.
01:08:26 <lc> Dave, your morning not goig well?
01:08:37 <lc> going
01:08:57 <Kevin L> Add politicians into the mix and it really gets fun!
01:09:12 <Dave from B> I just wasted an hour waiting to pickup frieght.
01:10:12 <lc> cam is not running smooth here.
01:10:59 <lc> just wondering, when does Dave M get any sleep.
01:11:04 <Dave from B> Aurum?
01:12:13 <lc> I couldn't see it Dave.
01:14:49 <Dave from B> Hard to see anything this morning
01:14:59 <lc> is it just me? cam only running about 10% of the time.
01:15:08 <Dave from B> I sure would like to get to OF before closing
01:15:18 <Dave from B> It is pretty choppy this morning
01:16:07 <ynpvisitor3> Cam choppy here too.
01:20:56 <Kevin L> Horrible here too.
01:46:34 <ynpvisitor77> It's kind of like a time lapse for OF right now.
01:49:42 <ynpvisitor63> OF ie
02:16:16 <Eric> Morning all...looks like the fog is lifting
02:17:48 <lc> black screen here
02:17:59 <ynpvisitor46> morning Eric
02:18:17 <Kevin L> Mine is working.
02:18:59 <Eric> Mine is working too
02:19:28 <Eric> Was a great full moon night of viewing last night...
02:19:56 <Eric> We could even easily see Daisy eruptions.
02:26:50 <Dave from B> Eric, when do you sleep?
02:31:04 <Eric> Sleep? I'll do enough of that when I am dead :-D
02:31:21 <Dave from B> hehe
02:35:58 <ynpvisitor46> Turban?
02:36:20 <kc (working)> nice turban
02:41:30 <Eric> Apparently that was a Grand!
02:41:38 <ynpvisitor18> :)
02:41:51 <Eric> CB posted from the field
02:42:08 <Eric> Sure looked small for a Grand
02:42:20 <Dave from B> 711 interval
02:43:07 <Eric> Not sure I ever saw water above the trees
02:43:44 <Dave from B> I saw water in the form of steam....does that couint?
02:43:49 <Dave from B> count
02:44:12 <ynpvisitor46> Position of steam cloud looks more like Grand now
02:44:33 <Dave from B> Daisy was 0941
02:44:36 <Eric> yep, and it's way to big for turban...it's just crazy how lackluster it looked.
02:44:59 <Dave from B> Is that better?
02:45:02 <Dave from B> #2
02:45:39 <Eric> who is driving this bus?
02:46:23 <Dave from B> Not me
02:46:49 <Eric> Lion had a short and early interval last night, so I expect action from it this morning.
02:47:54 <ynpvisitor46> We're not going to see the end of Grand?
03:07:13 <lc> after reboot still getting black screen
03:07:31 <lc> IE FF and Chrom
03:08:02 <Dave from B> ..
03:08:08 <Dave from B> That is strange lc
03:08:20 <Dave from B> Did you try clearing your cookies?
03:08:41 <lc> now I got a picture but not streaming.
03:08:53 <Eric> strange
03:09:06 <lc> no, how do I do that?
03:10:22 <Jake> Ctrl + F5 might work to do a hard page refresh
03:12:00 <lc> didn't do anything Jake.
03:12:33 <Jake> you see a picture from the webcam, but it isn't moving?
03:12:47 <lc> yes
03:13:23 <Jake> what do the numbers below the send button in chat show? something like XXXms
03:14:19 <lc> 139
03:14:39 <Jake> OF 1014
03:15:00 <Jake> well, lc, that's a plenty fast enough connection
03:15:15 <Jake> can you get the streaming on the NPS page? nps.gov/features/yell/webcam/oldFaithfulStreaming.html
03:15:31 <lc> I think something is going on with my computer.
03:17:57 <lc> no
03:19:00 <Dave from B> lc, anything else strange happening with your computer?
03:19:41 <lc> it is slow but other pages will load.
03:20:39 <Dave from B> Have you restarted or shutdown your computer this morning since the problem? How many times of each?
03:20:45 <lc> CPU usage is 1 to 5 %
03:21:07 <lc> I did reboot one time
03:21:29 <Dave from B> restart or completely turn off machine?
03:21:41 <lc> think I will shut it down and restart.
03:21:47 <lc> bbl
03:22:01 <Dave from B> That's what I would do. Sometimes there are updates that don't load until a shutdown.
03:42:32 <Dave from B> morning lt
03:43:16 <lt> morning
03:47:31 <Eric> morning lt
03:48:08 <Eric> No Frisky Bison on the cam today :-(
03:49:01 <lt> ok, how does one say "I can't make the interview you offered me at the last minute but i'd be happy to do one at another time"?
03:50:10 <Eric> Just let them know you have another comittment at that time and would like to know if it's possible to reschedule
03:50:28 <Eric> They might say no, but at least you can ask
03:50:41 <lt> pretty much did a variation on that
03:50:51 <lc> well, that didn't help any.
03:50:55 <lt> that was a wake-up jolt this morning, to see that in the inbox.
03:51:06 <Eric> Yep, always nice
03:59:37 <Eric> lt, doing any geyser gazing on your TV?
04:00:11 <Dave from B> lt, must not have a Smart TV!
04:02:00 <Eric> Can you watch the stream on your tv Dave?
04:04:58 <lc> problem solved
04:06:14 <lc> modem not connected tight.
04:06:23 <lt> ack, sorry, was reading elsewhere. we have had it on occasionally
04:06:24 <Will B> Jake can you pm me please
04:06:31 <lt> it looked pretty good last night with the moonlight
04:07:07 <lc> bbl
04:11:14 <Jake> Will, pm won't work, find me on FB
04:12:55 <Dave from B> Eric, I tried watching streaming 4 months ago when I moved in. Do you think things have changed?
04:16:05 <Eric> No...if it didn't work then, it won't work now either.
04:16:55 <Eric> I built a Roku app that you could use if you had a Roku :-D
04:27:40 <ynpvisitor2> Eric how do you get the Roku app?
04:28:43 <Eric> I could PM you a link if I knew who you are ;-P
04:30:17 <Eric> It's not public as I have not directly asked the Park Service or the foundation if I can use their stream for this. I believe technically, it's being created by a government agency and is free and clear to use, but I would rather ask before I do that.
04:31:17 <ynpvisitor2> TY
04:31:29 <Eric> NP
04:37:21 <Jake> Oblong
04:38:07 <Eric> yep
04:41:58 <Eric> Kevin must not be driving today
04:46:44 <Betty> OF
04:46:59 <Jake> wow, huge burst in there
04:47:29 <Eric> did it shoot sideways?
04:47:32 <Jake> and a rainbow
04:47:40 <Jake> no, straight up
04:47:44 <Eric> k
04:48:01 <Eric> Yesterday, there was an initial side jet at about 60 degrees...it was weird
04:48:15 <Eric> strong and big, lasted about a second
04:48:20 <Jake> did the normal start then a Beehive-like heavy rocket push
04:48:30 <Eric> Nice
04:48:36 <Eric> Love strong OF starts
04:49:07 <Eric> I have seen more rainbows in geysers over the last week, then I have seen all year
04:49:26 <Eric> Must be the sun angle makes them more prevelent
05:08:30 <Dave from B> I sure wish our spider was hungry
05:16:44 <CO Dave> Does anyone have the link to youtube that DaveM posted this morning? It's not captured properly in the chat log.
05:18:14 <kc (working)> this is his channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/dmonteit1
05:23:37 <lt> Daisy
05:23:46 <CO Dave> ty
05:29:15 <Eric> Here is BH from last night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UUyAKszMSh9oB-c0endzMKlw&feature=player_detailpage&v=2D0cydh56j0#t=175
05:30:04 <Eric> More direct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UUyAKszMSh9oB-c0endzMKlw&feature=player_detailpage&v=2D0cydh56j0#t=199
05:30:26 <lt> I love how you can see stars
05:30:42 <Eric> Almost looks like daytime
05:35:00 <Paul L.> I like the flashlights running all over the place
05:36:56 <CO Dave> That is fantastic. Super light with that full moon. You can really tell when the moon was obscured.
05:39:31 <Betty> that´s really fantastic
05:42:38 <Eric> Crazy how many people were out on the BW between 2 and 5am :-D
05:47:44 <CO Dave> I've been out well after dark and also well before 6 a.m., but never the small hours like that.
05:48:18 <Dave from B> Eric, have you been out at night at OF?
05:48:37 <Eric> I have not...we always stay too far away :-(
05:48:40 <Dave from B> It is a lot of fun. Quiet and totally different
05:49:01 <Eric> I bet...really want to try out a fall trip in the cabins
06:14:38 <Dave from B> Longest F&M interval since awakening this past June:(
06:15:36 <Eric> Hopefully it did not go back to sleep....
06:18:20 <Eric> Maybe BH before dark today.
06:23:10 <Betty> we missed a Lion minor 10 min ago??
06:23:24 <Eric> JUST saw that betty
06:23:49 <Eric> Guess it must have been pretty minor.
06:23:54 <Betty> must have been a very small eruption
06:23:59 <Eric> Weird to have a minor ini
06:24:24 <Betty> ini for the ini :-p
06:24:24 <Eric> Udo seems to be camping on the Lion Group today
06:24:52 <Eric> Maybe looking for some more BC activity.
06:25:00 <Eric> BTW, I didn't say Hello :-D
06:25:17 <Betty> haha, hello^^
06:28:48 <Dave from B> Must have been a burp
06:29:01 <Dave from B> Initial should be soon
06:29:05 <Eric> OF ie
06:41:47 <lc> could the Lion init been missed?
06:42:18 <lc> never seen a minor start the series.
06:43:25 <Kevin L> Yea! I got the shaft out!
06:43:37 <Dave from B> Was it a minor of just a splash...was anyone watching at that time?
06:44:09 <lc> I just got back from walk.
06:44:12 <lt> would have been right around the time you were commenting about F&M being quiet, Dave.
06:44:17 <lt> looks like
06:45:29 <lc> Udo logged it, I'm guessing he is there.
06:46:03 <lc> thats why I wondered if the init was missed.
06:53:59 <Dave from B> I'm afraid I haven't been watching much today so I'm no help
07:08:39 <Kevin L> I am going to have to start watching at midnight. Looks more interesting than daytime!
07:09:40 <Betty> it was awesome last night, I can tell you
07:10:41 <Kevin L> The one night we don't want clouds we got them. :p
07:19:39 <ynpvisitor98> Nice day for a 14 hour BH
07:21:26 <Dave from B> It would but I think we have one more eruption in the dark before it reappears during daytime
07:25:36 <ynpvisitor98> I will wager pickled haring on it.
07:29:36 <ynpvisitor98> Is that saw mill?
07:30:31 <Betty> crawling spider
07:31:41 <ynpvisitor98> Hi Betty. Did not look at names so did not know you were here. It is a good day for a 14 hour BH.
07:32:03 <Betty> hi 98
07:34:44 <Betty> not sure about sawmill. could be tardy as well
07:39:29 <Betty> a geyser! Split cone is erupting!!
07:40:43 <Dave from B> I thought it was another government shutdown!
07:49:56 <Betty> time to leave, have a great evening all
07:50:15 <Kevin L> Night Betty
07:50:15 <Eric> night betty
07:50:24 <Eric> hey kevin
07:51:03 <Kevin L> Hi Eric
07:51:37 <Dave from B> bye Betty
07:55:03 <Dave from B> OF
07:55:36 <Dave from B> Almost time for Turban watch
07:59:43 <Eric> Daisy
08:19:31 <kc (working)> aurum
08:20:04 <Dave from B> Thanks kc
08:20:30 <Dave from B> Too bad the cam wasn't about 5' hgiher in the tree
08:20:45 <Dave from B> We could see over Giantess mound
08:20:49 <Kevin L> Why can't it do that when I am driving?
08:21:43 <Eric> Because Aurum hates you.
08:21:51 <Eric> :-P
08:27:53 <Kevin L> Almost time for Dave to go home (and cry about the Dodgers).
08:30:39 <Dave from B> Hey!!! Seems to me you're a Dodger fan as well. I actually didn't watch a single inning of their playoff games. Seahawks were more fun to watch on Monday.
08:31:06 <Eric> Go Giants
08:31:25 <Dave from B> Who likes the New York Giants anymore?:)
08:31:39 <Eric> New York....get a rope!
08:31:54 <Dave from B> It's ok Eric. I'm actually one of the few Dodger fans who actually likes the Giants as well.
08:32:06 <Kevin L> :p
08:32:17 <Dave from B> We actually saw a Giants game on our honeymoon at Candlestick
08:32:22 <Kevin L> KC fan for the duration now.
08:32:23 <Eric> Nice
08:32:33 <Eric> hey, I had my honeymoon in SF also :-D
08:32:37 <Kevin L> And you are still married?
08:32:40 <Dave from B> I was so looking forward to a Dodger-Giants series...maybe next year
08:32:52 <Eric> That would have been good
08:33:47 <Dave from B> I'm tired of losing to the Cards in the playoffs.
08:39:10 <Graham> hello
08:39:41 <Eric> hey Graham
08:40:01 <Graham> nice day
08:41:07 <Eric> Yep, and we should have an active afternoon
08:42:20 <Dave from B> Good evening Graham
08:42:57 <Paul L.> ..
08:43:00 <Kevin L> About time you showed up.
08:44:38 <ynpvisitor90> Somethin gpuffing back there
08:46:07 <Graham> still early for my shift. think i have caught up on sleep
08:46:28 <Dave from B> Still dreaming about being stuck in traffic?
08:46:52 <Graham> got the sqawking hawks fans out of my head
08:47:08 <Kevin L> Now that you have put the curse on the Redskins & the Nationals you going to kill the Capitals now?
08:47:33 <Dave from B> You mean Hawks fans are even loud on the road?
08:47:58 <Kevin L> From both ends!
08:48:04 <Graham> not loud, just sqawk a lot
08:48:21 <Graham> hope the Caps have a good season, I am staying away so they can win
08:48:36 <Graham> hawks fans were noisy early on but they got quiet as the game got closer
08:48:49 <Kevin L> They were bored.
08:49:20 <Graham> haha, no, they were scared they were going to be embarised by the lowly redskins
08:49:50 <Kevin L> Hate to get beat by potatoes.
08:51:13 <Dave from B> Hawks have to figure out how to keep penalty flags in ref's pockets
08:52:24 <Kevin L> Felt sorry for that poor guy who kept scoring only to have some idiot take it away from him.
08:52:28 <Graham> i did enjoy all of those Dave, especially the 3 TD's called back :)
08:52:52 <Graham> i think all the noise i made scared their offence
08:53:07 <Kevin L> Felt like I was watching a BYU game, but they didn't break the QB's leg.
08:53:19 <Dave from B> I would have loved to hear what Percy said after that game to his teammates
08:53:30 <Graham> we couldn't catch him most of the time
08:54:09 <Graham> at least the game was better than we expected
08:55:36 <Kevin L> Even if the parking lot wasn't
08:55:39 <Dave from B> I'm glad you enjoyed the game. I'd love to get to a game one of these days.
08:56:23 <Graham> must admit, its better when they win
08:57:44 <Graham> so are we getting BH before dark?
08:58:17 <Kevin L> Depends on how you define dark.
08:58:52 <Graham> moonlit doesn't count, needs some sunlight
09:03:16 <Dave from B> Time to go home. Have a great evening everyone!
09:04:22 <Eric> Night Dave
09:04:26 <Eric> Hello Grand
09:04:40 <Eric> Yes, we will get BH before dark
09:04:47 <Graham> bye Dave

09:05:04 <Eric> hahaha, sorry...thought you had left ;-D
09:05:06 <Graham> you will be home in time Dave

09:13:13 <Eric> wooohoo, finally an ini

09:29:34 <Graham> i see Rift was earlier
09:31:56 <Eric> Can we keep both in view?
09:32:03 <Eric> or are you not driving Graham

10:23:50 <Eric> The speed is really cranked up so hard to see how crazy they were acting
