15:13:05 <ynpvisitor44> Iat is a long
15:13:49 <ynpvisitor44> Old Faithful is a long
15:15:49 <ynpvisitor67> For those that didn't see it, I think the actual statement is -- OF was a long :)
15:48:59 <ynpvisitor67> grand 0748
15:50:08 <Jimbo> Sure looked like a big Grand start, partly with the direction the steam is going
15:55:06 <ynpvisitor17> A Grand way to start the day!
15:58:04 <ynpvisitor17> Guten abend
15:58:19 <Betty> hi Kevin
15:58:36 <ynpvisitor69> ^v^
16:01:34 <ynpvisitor7> .
16:02:08 <Betty> Riverside ie
16:07:00 <ynpvisitor17> Interesting steam location. Assuming it is Riverside.
16:07:28 <Kevin L> Maybe Artemesia
16:07:48 <Betty> Riverside is posted from basin
16:07:53 <Jimbo> Anemone
16:08:01 <ynpvisitor7> >"<
16:12:40 <ynpvisitor67> It was the correct location for Riverside. Ben Hoppe also reporte4d it as Riverside from in the basin.
16:13:42 <Kevin L> Looks like the wind is not blowing from the normal direction today
16:14:11 <ynpvisitor67> yep
16:14:14 <Kevin L> Be nice to see an Aurum without OF steam all over it
16:14:35 <ynpvisitor67> very nice
16:15:04 <ynpvisitor67> Now if Aurum would just cooperate and teh cam operator catch it early then we'd have a great show.
16:17:55 <Kevin L> Aurum is tough with OF steam because when you zoom it the cam will focus on OF steam and blur Aurum.
16:32:07 <ynpvisitor69> .
16:39:07 <Betty> Aurum
16:39:12 <Betty> .
16:39:12 <Betty> .
16:39:13 <Betty> .
16:39:15 <Betty> .
16:39:52 <Betty> thanks for coming back
16:40:05 <ynpvisitor541> ty
16:44:59 <ynpvisitor67> As I said -- just need the cam operator to catch teh start early --- oops.
16:45:35 <ynpvisitor67> btw -- I'm the cam operator this morning. Thanks for the heads up Betty
16:45:41 <Kevin L> :p
16:46:01 <Kevin L> I was getting some things done.
16:46:16 <Kevin L> It knows!
16:46:28 <Betty> :-p
16:46:34 <ynpvisitor67> Why didn't you warn me?
16:46:59 <Kevin L> I guess I should have. Not going to be around much today though.
16:47:34 <Betty> so we get 10 Aurums today....yippie :-D
16:47:45 <ynpvisitor67> pretty
16:47:53 <Kevin L> Whole lot tomorrow too!
16:48:10 <Kevin L> I miss the top of it.

17:01:18 <Betty> indy
17:01:37 <Kevin L> I can send txt
17:02:21 <Jimbo> Yahoo
17:02:22 <Betty> yeah! Haven´t seen BH since last week
17:02:36 <Kevin L> Sent
17:03:03 <Kevin L> Great!
17:03:28 <Kevin L> I had given up on it until next week
17:04:20 <Eric> thx for the txt
17:04:43 <Eric> both of them actually :-)
17:05:12 <Kevin L> Nice surprise. Not excited about the interval though. I assume this is a closed one.
17:05:48 <Eric> Good morning Betty, Kevin
17:05:54 <Kevin L> Hi
17:06:10 <Betty> Morning Eric
17:06:47 <Tammy> Good morning everyone! Happy Friday to you all!
17:06:53 <Eric> Morning Tammy
17:06:58 <Tammy> And happy BH! Thank you for the text.
17:06:58 <Kevin L> Hi
17:07:01 <Betty> hi Tammy
17:07:23 <Eric> Nobody out on the BW :-(
17:08:33 <Eric> Hotels open today too, right?
17:08:56 <Tammy> Hi Betty, Kevin and Eric!
17:09:35 <Eric> Snow lodge and Mammoth are open today, just checked.
17:10:20 <Eric> LC
17:10:22 <Eric> ie
17:11:24 <Jimbo> Little Cub may be small, but it's persistent
17:11:51 <Betty> I really like this one :-)
17:12:05 <Eric> The early morning light is beautiful
17:13:14 <Tammy> Yes it sure is.
17:13:34 <Kevin L> Looks like a customer on the bw
17:13:47 <Eric> BH 0913
17:13:47 <Betty> yay
17:13:49 <Eric> .
17:13:50 <Eric> .
17:14:38 <Kevin L> Is that one leaning a bit to the right?
17:14:51 <Eric> It seems to be
17:14:58 <Betty> yeah
17:15:01 <Eric> While the indy leans left
17:15:01 <Betty> cool
17:15:03 <Jimbo> Really cool to see the weight of the water column get lifted out of the vent at the start
17:15:38 <Eric> I think the right lean is due to the bright morning sun only lighting up the right side.
17:16:01 <Jimbo> Thats what I think too, different illumination
17:16:09 <Kevin L> Probably is
17:16:12 <Eric> Yep, but it's cool :-)
17:16:56 <Kevin L> Bet the guy on the bw is getting good rainbows.
17:17:13 <Jimbo> Somebody could make a painting and call it "Lone Star Gazer"
17:17:20 <Eric> Some high speed, stop motion photography would be pretty sweet for these eruptions.
17:17:41 <Kevin L> Catch it right and you get 360 degree rainbows. Those are awesome.
17:17:52 <Eric> Like you mention JImbo, seeing the water column lift is pretty spectacular
17:18:22 <Jimbo> Yeah, slow-mo high speed would look cool
17:19:17 <Kevin L> I have never seen the high speed slow motion cams on a geyser. I lvoe it on Nascar and the shooting shows. It would be great to see total eruptions done in that.
17:19:48 <ynpvisitor83> The BH time on GT is incorrect.
17:20:33 <Kevin L> Depends on what time zone you are in!
17:20:39 <Eric> haha :-)
17:20:44 <Eric> I am sure Dave will fix it
17:21:06 <Eric> Thanks for pointing it out 83
17:21:29 <Eric> Look at that...already fixed.
17:22:26 <Kevin L> Well got Grand and BH. Now to move on to other things for the day....
17:22:46 <Betty> have fun, Kevin
17:23:17 <Kevin L> Going to be a busy day.
17:24:40 <ynpvisitor67> OK, I think that was a fair trade. Missed the start of Aurum but was zoomed in for the start of BHI. I'm happy.
17:25:10 <Kevin L> You did good.
17:25:11 <Betty> good cam work, 67!
17:25:18 <ynpvisitor67> Of course, in teh process, I burned my breakfast.
17:25:26 <Betty> haha
17:25:48 <Kevin L> That is what made all the geysers go at once!
17:26:43 <Kevin L> Where is Dave today? Picked a bad morning to be gone.
17:28:13 <Kevin L> Ugh. "You mouse has moved. Windows needs to restart for changes to take effect". :p brb
17:31:00 <Betty> hey, Castle
17:31:03 <ynpvisitor67> castle
17:34:41 <Eric> Nice water column from castle
17:42:57 <ynpvisitor18> I like this number!
17:47:30 <Eric> rainbow
17:48:18 <Kevin L> Nice! Never seen a XCastle cam rainbow before
17:51:14 <Kevin L> Steam phase should be great!
17:51:36 <Kevin L> BTW I am picking up the spelling for Dvae today.
17:51:55 <ynpvisitor67> haha
17:53:09 <Kevin L> Already 80 degrees here on the local weather station.
18:14:06 <Eric> That was a really cool castle...glad I got to see most of it.
18:49:00 <Eric> This is a cool view...
18:49:09 <Eric> Other than the Fluffy steam :-)
18:49:55 <Eric> Are those mineral or algae colors on this side of Giantess?
18:50:29 <Betty> algae I think in runoff
18:50:41 <Eric> Thanks Betty
18:50:45 <Eric> You off today?
18:51:13 <Betty> off from work? yes.
18:51:43 <Eric> Nice..
18:52:11 <Betty> May 1st is a holiday in Germany
18:52:46 <Betty> it is our Labour Day
18:52:47 <Eric> ahh, what holiday?
18:53:02 <Eric> Very good...happy Labour Day
18:53:06 <Eric> :-)
18:53:15 <Betty> thanks :-)
18:53:30 <Eric> Looks like King dwarf is on
18:54:12 <Eric> barely peaking over the depression ridge
18:55:45 <Betty> morning Mario
18:56:00 <Kevin L> do they blow stuff up there anymore today Betty?
18:56:12 <Betty> no
18:56:34 <Kevin L> That is nice. I always hated May 1st when I was there.
18:56:50 <Eric> You don't like blowing stuff up Kevin?
18:57:09 <Kevin L> When I am not the target it is fun.
18:59:33 <Kevin L> We just do computers, TV sets, and other things with a bad attitude. The bader meinhof gang targeted innocent people and military bases.
18:59:50 <Eric> ahh, that is not good.
19:00:11 <Kevin L> They also had nerve gas. THAT really terrified me.
19:00:24 <Eric> Yikes, now I understand your consternation.
19:00:54 <Betty> they were really bad those days. I was a child and it really horrified me
19:00:57 <Eric> I thought you meant more like chinese new years and all of the explosions from fireworks.
19:00:58 <Kevin L> They never did use nerve gas, but they blew up a building in Rhein Main next to the one I was in once.
19:01:15 <Mario> Morning Betty, morning everyone!
19:01:21 <Kevin L> Hi
19:01:28 <Eric> Wow, glad that got under control.
19:01:31 <Kevin L> Nice to see they are gone Betty.
19:01:38 <Eric> Morning Mario
19:01:59 <Betty> they are gone for long, mid 80´s
19:03:13 <Betty> nowadays some other groups take May 1st as a day for radical demonstrations, but they are rare
19:03:37 <Eric> demonstration good...blowing up buildings bad!
19:03:49 <Betty> they think burning cars is fun, but it is not!
19:05:51 <Kevin L> We have some groups like that here too Betty. We call them idiot thugs.
19:06:45 <Betty> haha, the word idiot is multicultural :-)
19:19:41 <Betty> I lost my streaming
19:27:46 <kc (working)> ditto
19:33:46 <Eric> I see night time
19:34:27 <Eric> Someone probably unplugged the router getting the photoshop ready :-(
19:37:32 <Eric> Maybe they are replacing the dome?
19:54:01 <kc (working)> OF ie via static
19:57:34 <kc (working)> beartooth hwy on schedule to be open by memorial day per tweet
20:33:40 <ynpvisitor22> is cam broken? I have a static photo up
20:34:36 <Betty> at least you see anything. Mine is black
20:41:46 <ynpvisitor22> yeah, nice blue sky day, only stuck in time
20:42:21 <ynpvisitor22> ooh, refreshed and they moved.
20:42:27 <ynpvisitor22> still static though
20:57:35 <ynpvisitor62> dang guess its already dark. At least i saw bh and old faithful earler
21:23:54 <Kevin L> Hmmm. I guess I won't be missing aything this afternoon.
21:24:06 <Eric> I have notified the park via Facebook
21:24:19 <Eric> That usually gets things moving
21:24:54 <Betty> thanks Eric
22:03:28 <ynpvisitor25> uh oh no overlook i guess.... this could be a long week......
22:04:40 <Kevin L> New zoom looking deep into the crack between two rocks on the overlook!
22:46:00 <Eric> Park rangers are headed to the photoshop to due magical incantations according to facebook.
22:46:13 <Eric> :-)
22:46:21 <Eric> Hopefully soon the cam will be back up.
23:00:31 <ynpvisitor25> .
23:00:32 <ynpvisitor25> .
23:00:32 <ynpvisitor25> .
23:00:36 <ynpvisitor25> stream is back
23:01:15 <Betty> yay, right in time when I head out :-p
23:01:53 <Betty> enjoy the view, night all
23:13:35 <Eric> Cam is up
23:13:47 <Eric> someone with txt super powers want to ping everyone?
23:14:04 <ynpvisitor25> dont think that is really needed
23:14:10 <Eric> k
23:14:27 <Eric> Just trying to be nice in case someone was waiting.
23:17:42 <Mario> thx Eric
23:42:11 <Kevin L> Enjoy everyone.
23:42:25 <Eric> Thx Kevin.
23:44:05 <Kevin L> May be on a bit in the morning but if not be back on Monday.
00:15:50 <Mario> splashing in Lion
00:18:02 <Eric> We are due some lion action
00:19:09 <Eric> OF 1619
00:19:16 <Mario> OF
00:24:28 <Mario> Is everyone's streaming really choppy or is it just me?
00:24:51 <ynpvisitor25> mine is choppy
00:24:53 <ynpvisitor76> My stream is freezing.
00:25:16 <ynpvisitor25> better than nothing though
00:26:13 <Mario> You're right :)
00:37:52 <Eric> I think the choppiness comes from too many operators opening a connection to the camera.
00:39:18 <Eric> Total guess, but I think the operator page connects to a direct feed to the camera so that there is less latency between controls and viewing. However this creates a bandwidth choke if more than one operator is connected.
00:42:04 <Mario> Daisy
00:42:05 <ynpvisitor25> daisy
00:45:53 <ynpvisitor25> lion ie finishing
00:46:00 <Eric> ya, agreed
00:46:04 <Eric> bummer
01:25:51 <Eric> SC ie
01:29:52 <Eric> So i guess we will find out if last Lion was ini based on timing.
01:30:49 <Eric> If it goes before 1745, it was not ini...after 1800 it was ini
01:31:07 <Eric> Reasonable assumption?
01:44:17 <Eric> LC ie
01:44:50 <Eric> King Dwarf is also active
01:48:08 <ynpvisitor25> Eric we are not naming the dwarfs
01:48:21 <ynpvisitor25> they change too frequently
01:52:18 <Eric> You call it main, I call it big deal
01:52:40 <ynpvisitor25> I call them the dwafrs
01:53:00 <Eric> Cool
01:53:06 <Eric> Whatever makes you happy :-)
01:54:07 <ynpvisitor94> dwafrs?
01:54:12 <ynpvisitor94> is that intentional?
01:54:30 <ynpvisitor25> *dwarfs
01:54:33 <ynpvisitor94> isn't more than one dwarf, dwarves?
01:55:05 <ynpvisitor25> UNNG-GHG-3
01:55:07 <ynpvisitor94> No Ledge time, too bad
01:55:52 <Eric> Lion any second....
01:56:08 <Eric> Lion 1756
01:57:25 <Eric> Bummer we don't have a camop
01:57:46 <ynpvisitor25> there is one right now
01:57:50 <ynpvisitor25> OF is due
01:57:59 <ynpvisitor25> and cam is not in preset
01:58:47 <ynpvisitor94> so at 1756 what is it Eric?
01:59:11 <Eric> 2nd in series
01:59:15 <Eric> I would assume
02:00:10 <ynpvisitor94> 100 minutes for OF now
02:00:12 <Eric> assuming the last eruption was an ini based on timing
02:01:01 <ynpvisitor25> well there have been mid series intervals of about 1hr 10m
02:01:07 <ynpvisitor25> so you cant be certain
02:01:27 <Eric> Its true...that's why I am assuming. No evidence other than the time.
02:02:27 <Eric> OF 1802
02:02:35 <Eric> Nice big blast
03:17:45 <kcmule> daisy ie
03:18:11 <Mario> Daisy
03:19:53 <Mario> OF wohoo!
03:19:56 <kcmule> OF
04:20:08 <ynpvisitor89> Jake reported a Turban time...
04:31:44 <ynpvisitor89> GRand
04:51:24 <kcmule> OF
06:01:37 <kcmule> daisy ie
06:31:38 <kcmule> OF ie
