14:10:16 <vw> Good morning all.
14:10:30 <vw> No rush to move cam with all that fog. Back in a bit.
14:15:31 <Dave from B> Morning vw!
14:16:32 <vw> Good morning Dave.
14:17:19 <vw> So foggy that even OF is hiding. Glad cb got the earlier time. At least we have something to go on, although likely missing one from a few minutes ago.
14:19:46 <Dave from B> Morning viewing hasn't been the best this week.
14:21:02 <vw> With the high humidity levels we have been experiencing overnight that doesn't surprise me.
14:29:50 <Dave from B> Morning Art H
14:33:07 <Art H> Morning Dave
14:33:25 <Art H> Looks like Hayden Valley out there
14:39:26 <Dave from B> Yes, camera could have been moved and we
14:39:34 <Dave from B> would not even know!
14:46:15 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
14:46:26 <vw> Hi Art H, Kevin.
14:47:15 <Kevin L> Morning. Fish & Chips anyone?
14:50:57 <Ryan> Took my last exam in this round - I can FINALLY relax a bit.
14:51:16 <Kevin L> Yee!
14:51:37 <Ryan> Incompressible Aerodynamics - open book, open notes - still threw me for a loop
14:52:12 <vw> Hi R.
14:52:24 <Ryan> Morning v
14:52:28 <Ryan> vw*
14:52:29 <vw> Shouldn't that be Incomprehensible Aerodynamics?
14:52:41 <Ryan> bpth :)
14:52:44 <Ryan> both*
14:52:48 <Kevin L> It would be for me!
14:53:50 <vw> Air flows. Air flows around objects. When air doesn't flow around objects, you have problems. End of my comprehension.
14:55:08 <Ryan> More like - air flows around objects. This flow is not steady - it changes dpeending on location. Also, it spins. When it separates from the object - then you have BIG problems.
14:56:01 <Dave from B> Hey, the Wright Brothers figured it out
14:56:12 <vw> Now was that so difficult R?!?! :D I like the last one. I will add it to my list.
14:56:32 <Ryan> :D
14:57:01 <vw> I come from the KISS school R. Always try to keep things simple.
14:57:02 <Ryan> Now take a volume integral of the flow field to find if the vorticity is non-zero.
14:57:13 <Kevin L> I think a lot of people figured it out. The key was to get enough power to keep them in the air!
14:57:24 <Ryan> We dont KISS in incompressible aero.
14:57:26 <vw> No. No. nononononononononono. Way too much informatin.
14:57:34 <Ryan> Kevin - even a barn door will fly given enough speed.
14:57:47 <vw> Maybe you should R. It might make it more enjoyable.
14:58:26 <Kevin L> I have seen a lot of cars fly during Talladega and Daytona Nascar races.
14:59:55 <Ryan> We literally take the continuity equation: A1*V1 = A2*V2 (basically, a smaller pipe will have faster flowing fluids) and turn it into a triple integral based on the cross product of the velocity function and the del operator.
15:01:51 <Kevin L> What is amazing is how similar liquids are to air in pipes.
15:03:29 <Ryan> Yes - but only at low speeds and certain pressures.
15:03:55 <Ryan> I dont want to think about anything else for the next week. Long weekend coming up with ym birthday on Friday.
15:05:02 <Kevin L> You can finally buy .22 shells - if you can find any!
15:05:14 <Ryan> :)
15:06:56 <Kevin L> It always irratated me that I could be firing 100lbs of stell and TNT 20 miles and I couldn't buy .22 shells!
15:07:07 <Kevin L> steeel
15:07:12 <Kevin L> I give up!
15:07:21 <Kevin L> METAL!
15:07:27 <vw> hehe
15:08:48 <Ryan> Dear IE....
15:09:01 <Ryan> No - dear WVU, why in the hell do you have internet explorer and firefox?
15:11:45 <Kevin L> The idiot that came up with the mail program in Windows 10 needs to be boiled in oil.
15:13:22 <Ryan> Some of the admins in this school need to be too.....
15:14:01 <Kevin L> Small spike on OF seismo just about 0430 today.
15:19:24 <Ryan> In other news - I think the 2nd and 3rd movements of Sibelius' 3rd Symphony may be some of the most relaxing music I have listened to...
15:23:25 <Dave from B> I prefer the sounds of Spasmodic or Aurum:)
15:24:59 <Dave from B> We need someone to make a sounds of the geyser basins "cd"
15:25:03 <Kevin L> I'll buy that Dave! Either that of the whistle and chugging of the Silverton train heading up the canyon.
15:25:34 <Kevin L> I bet that would sell. Have to be done off season though.
15:25:45 <Dave from B> I would buy it!
15:26:23 <Kevin L> I have a lot of background train sounds CDs. Too bad I can't hear them anymore.
15:26:45 <Ryan> Firefox - NO the backspace key does NOT mean "bold my text"
15:27:33 <Kevin L> Need some tannerite Ryan?
15:27:55 <Ryan> Blogger seems to be having issues today
15:38:36 <vw> OF 0838
15:38:39 <Art H> OF 8:38
15:39:10 <Ryan> Not bad for g-o-g.
15:39:56 <vw> You know that view we were just starting to see......?
15:51:01 <vw> Clearing somewhat, but a long way from good viewing conditions.
15:51:06 <Ryan> ....and it is official - car is total.
15:51:17 <vw> Hi kc.
15:51:28 <vw> Bad news R. I am sorry to hear that.
15:51:38 <kc (working)> mornin vw
15:51:57 <Ryan> Over 12 thousand in damage. Not bad for 22mph.
15:52:12 <Dave from B> wow. glad you were ok
15:52:39 <Ryan> Glad I wasnt wearing glasses - the air bag would have done some damage. Thanks, all.
15:52:43 <Ryan> Off to Thermo.
15:53:03 <Dave from B> Why you going to Thermopolis?:)
16:10:38 <Dave from B> NPS Predictions: OF 1012 (10), Castle 1145 (45)
16:11:46 <Kevin L> Fly 0911
16:12:01 <ynpvisitor48> I guess I missed it. What did ryan run into?
16:12:02 <Dave from B> haha
16:12:18 <Kevin L> I guess another car 48
16:12:19 <Dave from B> I believe someone hit him
16:12:36 <ynpvisitor48> Need to move the cam to scar it
16:18:22 <Kevin L> If they totaled my car I would owe them money!
16:18:23 <Dave from B> You want to scar the bug for life?:)...sorry I couldn't resist!
16:34:14 <Kevin L> Fog is coming back
16:52:21 <Dave from B> @#$%@#$^ Quickbooks...brb restart needed
16:52:54 <Kevin L> danica of accouinting?
16:58:50 <Kevin L> We have some E times now.
17:03:52 <Dave from B> Might as well be the cloud chat room today. What is going opn on GH?
17:04:23 <Dave from B> Giantess boil? Aurum?
17:04:39 <Kevin L> Most likely boil
17:06:13 <Kevin L> Strange fog today.
17:15:25 <Dave from B> Riverside?
17:16:17 <Kevin L> Think that is OF Dave.
17:34:26 <Dave from B> behind the trees...OF has been moved?
17:35:25 <Kevin L> It wa OF when I looked
17:36:23 <Dave from B> Nice that fog is gone finally
17:36:49 <Kevin L> Yes
17:40:01 <ynpvisitor69> I saw it too Dave. I think it was steam from the Grotto area that swirled around.
17:40:20 <Kevin L> Good time for Aurum or BH now.
17:40:32 <Kevin L> Lion would work too.
17:45:23 <Dave from B> Thanks 69
17:49:52 <kc (working)> daisy ie
17:49:55 <Kevin L> Now that is Daisy
17:52:43 <ynpvisitor53> .
17:52:43 <ynpvisitor53> .
17:52:44 <ynpvisitor53> .
17:52:44 <ynpvisitor53> .
17:52:45 <ynpvisitor53> .
17:52:48 <ynpvisitor53> Bhi
17:53:04 <Dave from B> Now that is the ground
17:53:07 <Kevin L> I liked that grass.
17:53:57 <ynpvisitor69> Keep complaining and you might get to see it again :)
17:54:24 <Dave from B> :D
17:54:36 <ge (working)> TY for the text
17:55:18 <Dave from B> Yes, and for whoever mispelled BHI on the alert....you made me laugh
17:55:27 <Dave from B> Hi, ge
17:55:47 <ge (working)> Morning, Dave
17:57:55 <Kevin L> I figured you sent it Dave.
17:58:45 <Dave from B> haha
18:01:08 <Dave from B> nice crowd
18:03:08 <Dave from B> Hard to believe YNP has set record and there are still 5 weeks before end of season (as of Oct1)
18:05:28 <Dave from B> Indies has seemed longer this week
18:07:13 <lt> they have
18:09:38 <Dave from B> nice BH 1109
18:11:10 <Art H> It was noticeable how busy the park was
18:12:02 <Art H> We always come the first week or two in September
18:12:32 <Art H> Never seen so many people that time of year
18:13:01 <Dave from B> Yes, Art. I have NEVER seen the park as busy as it was in July and Labor Day. It wasn't much fun traveling to LGB with all the traffic especially if you were in the OF just erupted traffic jam.
18:13:54 <Art H> Selfie sticks everywhere ;)
18:14:30 <ge (working)> It's a shame they are selling at the old foto store
18:14:49 <Dave from B> I believe NPS said Sept traffic was up 37% over last year which was a record but don't quote me for sure. Gazette ap article is not there anymore...old news, I guess.
18:14:54 <ge (working)> Sorry, Jake
18:15:20 <ge (working)> back to work for me--Bye
18:15:44 <ynpvisitor91> Grand ie
18:20:26 <ynpvisitor82> Good view of Grand today
18:20:46 <Dave from B> Glad it waited for fog to leave
18:24:21 <Dave from B> Looks like going to be a 1B
18:36:33 <ynpvisitor72> G'Day Everyone
18:38:06 <kc (working)> hello
18:38:13 <kc (working)> castle 1136 gt
18:38:24 <Dave from B> Hi, Rich!
18:38:48 <Ryan> Hi Rich
18:41:31 <ynpvisitor69> minor
18:41:54 <Ryan> 5 minute minor, wow
18:44:58 <Dave from B> OF 1145ie
19:01:55 <ynpvisitor78> .
19:33:11 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
19:34:18 <Betty> Hi Dave
19:34:39 <Betty> quiet room today
19:35:33 <Dave from B> Eric's not here...Kevin's busy?....It is quiet
19:35:46 <Betty> haha
19:35:48 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
19:36:04 <Betty> ah, he slept a while
19:36:16 <Betty> hi Kevin
19:37:39 <Kevin L> Hi
19:40:43 <Betty> depression?
19:41:07 <Betty> people looking at it
20:43:24 <ynpvisitor58> Those Bison are too close to the people
20:44:19 <ynpvisitor69> The bison should read the warnings about getting too close to people.
20:44:42 <Kevin L> They need to train them better.
20:45:03 <ynpvisitor58> They need to be retrained. Send them to orientation and put them on probation
20:45:34 <Kevin L> They could use sensitivity training too.
20:47:28 <Kevin L> Whole mess of the critters today.
20:50:16 <ynpvisitor461> has anyone seen the latest bison count?
20:50:36 <ynpvisitor58> Nope
20:54:38 <ynpvisitor58> One is on the wrong side of the river.
20:54:55 <ynpvisitor58> Guess not
20:56:51 <ynpvisitor58> Kind of makes the dangerous ground stay on the boardwalks signs suspect
20:57:00 <ynpvisitor58> Now one is one the wrong side
21:16:07 <ynpvisitor58> lc
21:39:47 <ynpvisitor69> lion
21:39:55 <Kevin L> hot water in the air!
22:07:40 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
22:11:20 <Dave from B> Lion will wake you
22:49:29 <Dave from B> Did Sawmill just start?
22:49:39 <Dave from B> Lion 1549
23:09:47 <Dave from B> Yes, Payroll Reports are done for another quarter.:)
23:14:19 <Dave from B> So, it seems Giant isn't going to suddenly spring into weekly eruptions:(
23:16:02 <ynpvisitor56> of ie
23:18:04 <ynpvisitor45> Strong Geomagnetic Storm KP level 7, might get some awesome aurora borialis tonight if you live in the northern states!
23:19:12 <ynpvisitor69> Saw the aurora on the webcam last night.
23:19:39 <ynpvisitor69> If it si clear enough, it could be fun tonight
23:21:51 <Dave from B> Thanks, 69!
23:24:16 <lt> wow, nice to know
23:26:01 <ynpvisitor69> should thank 45
23:27:56 <Dave from B> oops..thanks 45!
23:29:01 <Dave from B> Good evening Graham
23:29:40 <Graham> hello, whats going on?
23:32:43 <Dave from B> Nice to have a clear afternoon in the basin after foggy morning
23:34:18 <ynpvisitor69> We;er in a Lion series. Castle minor earlier, Castle has been quiet for a couple hours. BH was earlier. Grand should cooperate.
23:41:13 <Graham> thanks for the reports
23:55:11 <Dave from B> And, good chance for northern lights tonight
23:58:08 <Graham> nice
00:00:28 <ynpvisitor69> lion
00:06:20 <Kevin L> We will look for clouds lighting up Dave.
00:11:12 <Dave from B> Maybe it will clear:)
00:12:19 <Kevin L> It's clear down here. There are also LOTS of lights to the north of me.
00:12:57 <ynpvisitor45> Vegas doesn't count!
00:13:05 <Dave from B> Is there anywhere else that has more lights?
00:13:21 <Dave from B> Turban?
00:13:35 <Kevin L> Pretty dark to the south of me.
00:31:29 <Graham> Turban?
00:31:45 <Graham> 1727
00:32:50 <Dave from B> Tara is on the scene
00:39:28 <Dave from B> Are people cheering for Cubs or Pirates tonight?
00:39:59 <Kevin L> Most likely.
00:40:31 <Dave from B> ?
00:41:20 <Kevin L> Be kind of dumb to cheer for the Dodgers tonight.
00:43:17 <Dave from B> Well, what team are you rooting for?
00:44:10 <Kevin L> There is a Chicago team in there and you ask a Packers fan who he is cheering for? Surely you jest!
00:44:22 <Dave from B> haha
00:44:57 <Dave from B> I'm for whoever can take out the Cards in the next series....Don't want to see them in next round if we survive first round.
00:45:12 <Dave from B> we = Dodgers:)
00:45:44 <Kevin L> Not really sure I want to see the Pirates either.
00:48:41 <ynpvisitor69> grand
00:48:45 <Kevin L> I think Hockey starts today too.
00:53:45 <Graham> Riverside
00:54:10 <Dave from B> Time to head home. Have a great evening everyone!
00:54:31 <Kevin L> Bye
00:57:46 <kcmule> castle started back up again too
00:58:30 <Kevin L> Nice 2nd.
01:01:45 <Graham> OF
01:03:39 <Graham> last 10 grands with data 1b=4, 2b=5, 3b=1
01:05:19 <ynpvisitor52> Keep up the good work, Grand!
01:06:14 <Graham> see DNC lost the Yosemite contract to Aramark
01:16:16 <Kevin L> I haven't been impressed with them in Yellowstone. I would like Hamms back.
01:17:42 <Graham> 15 year contract, they will be around for a while
01:17:53 <Kevin L> :p
01:18:11 <ynpvisitor55> what does that mean? DNC is out? It is their buildings I thought
01:18:19 <Kevin L> By then I may be feeding flowers!
01:18:48 <ynpvisitor55> oh, in Yosemite, I thought we were talking Yellowstone...
01:18:57 <Graham> out of Yosemite, NOT Yellowstone
01:19:13 <ynpvisitor55> just caught up, sorry
01:21:01 <Graham> i thinkthe park service owns the buildings tho
01:26:20 <ynpvisitor55> they might. I was thinking of the Hamilton Stores buildings, yet I think they were even built under lease agreement.
01:31:59 <Kevin L> I think all of the stores are on the National Register of Historic Places.
02:10:06 <Will B> yes the NPS still owns all the buildings
02:11:53 <Graham> hi Will. hows school working out?
02:12:20 <Will B> buzy
02:12:24 <Will B> busy
02:12:28 <Will B> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
02:12:32 <Will B> nap time
02:12:49 <Graham> steam at F&M, wake up
02:12:59 <Will B> meh
02:13:45 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
02:14:11 <Graham> thats why i go to so many meetings, to take long naps

02:22:15 <Graham> I am guerssing cb wasn't there or would have been listed
02:22:24 <Graham> we get OF
02:23:18 <Graham> still seeing steam from F&M
02:27:28 <Graham> 3rdF&M of the year
02:29:15 <Graham> maybe Tara got to see some of it
02:29:34 <Graham> wb Will
02:29:39 <Will B> i saw
02:29:42 <Graham> or are you still zzzzzzzzz
02:30:09 <Will B> yep
02:30:27 <Graham> i am quitting now, time for me to sleep
02:30:48 <Graham> wil go and dream of F&M erupting
02:30:52 <Graham> bye
02:46:45 <Kevin L> Turn out the lights.......The Party's over......
02:53:56 <ynpvisitor45> Geomagnetic storm has been upgraded to severe level 9 on kp index should be able to see the northern lights as far south as Florida! Thats rare!
