07:03:44 <Dave from B> Ther's one
07:03:53 <Dave from B> and another
07:12:34 <ynpvisitor17> Now there are hivehounds and Anenome addicts out there.
07:16:08 <Betty> bright view
07:23:33 <Dave from B> Do beekeepers use hivehounds?
07:25:08 <Kevin L> Only to herd the bees.from hive to hive.
07:34:31 <ynpvisitor17> Keeps the bees away from the Lion lovers, Aurum admirerers, Dome devotees, and Fan fans,
07:58:35 <Jake> OF ns
07:58:44 <Jake> odd wind direction
07:59:17 <Jake> NNE wind. Just like the banner says!
07:59:47 <Jake> OF short
07:59:54 <Jake> I think maybe. hold on
08:02:54 <ynpvisitor17> weird !
08:08:53 <Betty> Hi Jake and kc
08:09:58 <Betty> Lion
08:12:03 <Jake> good evening Betty
08:13:19 <kc (working)> mornin
08:21:32 <Dave from B> ..
08:24:37 <Betty> morning Jimbo
08:25:40 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Good morning Dave from B. and all
08:26:11 <Jimbo Ruthenium> I did not. Looks like we're sitting in the BH window, eh?
08:26:27 <Betty> yep
08:27:00 <Jimbo Ruthenium> I'll keep the sound on
08:29:15 <Dave from B> Hi Jimbo
08:29:41 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Hi Betty
08:30:06 <Jimbo Ruthenium> I bet Betty didn't quit either
08:30:59 <Jake> Daisy, OF, Grand, Bee. In that order
08:31:14 <Dave from B> So, Ruthenium? Is that what Babe Ruth so good?
08:31:22 <Dave from B> what made*
08:31:41 <Jimbo Ruthenium> It's actually named after Russia (the Latin name for Russia)
08:31:57 <Jimbo Ruthenium> but I like your idea
08:32:10 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Main use is to make other metals stronger and more corrosion-resistant
08:32:15 <Dave from B> Babe Ruth was Russian?
08:32:39 <Jimbo Ruthenium> I'm not sure of the etymology of the name "Ruth"
08:34:15 <Jimbo Ruthenium> But the Latin name for Russia is Ruthenia
08:42:20 <Dave from B> ok Betty.....time to hit the button!
08:43:50 <Betty> I hit a lot of drives me crazy today
08:50:02 <Eric> Morning all
08:50:14 <Betty> hey Eric
08:50:32 <Eric> Hi Betty...I heard you were going to push the button. I am ready :-D
08:51:14 <Dave from B> Morning ERic
08:51:21 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:10:46 <Betty> hi Casey
09:11:32 <Casey> Hi Betty. Hi everyone.
09:14:24 <Betty> OF
09:14:28 <Betty> Lion
09:15:08 <ynpvisitor13> Rainbows and schmutz
09:15:39 <Casey> Now I can see Lion
09:15:57 <Betty> great Lion series today
09:17:22 <Betty> Indy will start in 20 min. got to leave then :-p
09:17:29 <Casey> LC ie 1114 on GT
09:19:56 <Eric> Actually, BHI will start right before you walk away Betty. It's mean like that
09:20:33 <Betty> that is what I said
09:20:44 <Betty> turban?
09:21:40 <Betty> too early for turban
09:22:02 <Betty> Daisy
09:24:24 <Betty> yay, Grand
09:24:54 <kc (working)> tough wind for the benches
09:26:35 <Jimbo Ruthenium> wow, erupting in bunches right now
09:27:31 <Eric> hard to see any water
09:27:38 <ynpvisitor17> Daisy crowd was moved also.
09:32:41 <ynpvisitor17> Benches could use a stesm cleaning once in a while.
09:33:55 <ynpvisitor17> steam
09:35:43 <Dave from B> grrr...I missed Grand
09:36:32 <ynpvisitor51> I could use a stream cleaning today. Tired of 502 Bad Gateway.
09:36:49 <Betty> I will miss back after it :-p
09:37:24 <Dave from B> Lots of people watching the "pot"
10:10:30 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Is BH trying for that 18-hour interval again?
10:17:25 <ynpvisitor17> BHI?
10:17:50 <Jake> ding
10:18:04 <Casey> Awesome
10:18:14 <ynpvisitor64> .
10:18:14 <ynpvisitor64> .
10:18:14 <ynpvisitor64> .
10:18:15 <ynpvisitor64> .
10:18:15 <ynpvisitor64> .
10:18:44 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Didn't make 18 hours, thankfully!
10:19:02 <ynpvisitor64> has a text been sent?
10:19:33 <ynpvisitor87> with a little bit of luck we have two geysers going - BHI & Lion
10:19:42 <Casey> I have not received a text
10:20:13 <ynpvisitor64> text sent
10:21:42 <Kevin L> :)
10:22:25 <Dave from B> Yes...I remembered my phone this time!
10:22:52 <DGInc> right... I have a spinning wheel and a working stream behind it...
10:23:00 <DGInc> LC
10:23:10 <Eric> refresh
10:23:27 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Has anybody ever evaluated the length of BHI durations prior to the BH eruption? Statistics might be interesting
10:23:57 <DGInc> during refreshing I got an 502... perfect
10:24:03 <DGInc> a*
10:24:08 <Eric> I have asked about it...everyone has said no correlation.
10:24:30 <Eric> But that just might be experience...versus actual data correlation
10:25:26 <Kevin L> Hope it isn't a dual.
10:25:27 <DGInc> what I do have noticed is that sometimes when Beehive has a short interval (9 to 11 hours) there's going to be a new interval
10:25:57 <Casey> Nice, DGInc. Mind blown.
10:26:14 <DGInc> Lion
10:27:00 <DGInc> minor
10:27:22 <Eric> apparently that wasn't long enough to be considered a minor
10:27:26 <ynpvisitor17> The old cat is being frisky today.
10:27:53 <DGInc> I saw water for a brief second though
10:28:41 <Eric> Maybe other shave opinions here, but someone anonymously chimed in about it being around a minute to be a minor...otherwise it's a false start.
10:28:47 <Eric> others have
10:32:41 <Casey> Glad you asked Eric. I was part of that discussion yesterday and would like to know the consensus as well. Hopefully we'll hear some opinions.
10:32:44 <Casey> What are the minimum requirements for Lion activity to be considered a minor eruption?
10:33:52 <Jake> anything more than a single spit I'd call a minor, could last just a few seconds if it has some water column sustaining
10:34:17 <DGInc> I'd say when there is visible water about as high as a normal eruption would go, but for 1 minute or less and/or a missing steam phase
10:34:51 <ynpvisitor64> look it needs height and it needs to be sustained.
10:35:01 <DGInc> Boom!
10:35:21 <ynpvisitor64> What we saw yesterday looked more like OF preplay than a Lion eruption.
10:35:52 <DGInc> Nice opening spike
10:35:52 <Kevin L> A cottonball!
10:36:24 <Casey> We saw two within 10 minutes yesterday that were 5-10 seconds in duration that approached the height of short, late-series eruptions (nothing overly impressive of course).
10:38:25 <Jimbo Ruthenium> Good wind shift for the finish
10:38:33 <DGInc> yep
10:38:55 <DGInc> looks like Lion is trying again
10:40:35 <DGInc> finally... it's working again... sort of... not at all
10:40:39 <Jake> good view for the boardwalk people. big cottonball from the cam
10:41:12 <Jake> very nice of Beehive to slip just inside the GT prediction window
10:41:29 <DGInc> yep
10:43:26 <DGInc> well, I'm off due to an annoying choppy stream
10:44:09 <Casey> I so badly want to pick on you for being "off" by almost 2 hours on your prediction, but I can't make myself do it.
10:44:30 <Casey> It's awesome to have even a little confidence in BH
10:47:20 <Casey> Do we have access to archived webcam footage?
10:48:03 <Kevin L> Dave M used to put it on YouTube.
10:48:46 <Jake>
10:49:20 <ynpvisitor60> Lion
10:49:22 <Jake> Lion doing some pixelated thing
10:49:30 <Casey> "This channel does not exist"
10:49:51 <Kevin L>
10:49:59 <Kevin L> .
10:50:02 <Jake> oh, take off the period at the end of the url
10:50:07 <Kevin L> :( Betty
10:50:08 <Betty> how was BH
10:50:14 <Casey> I just figured that out. Thanks Jake.
10:50:59 <Betty> Dome ie
10:53:25 <Betty> OF
10:55:07 <Kevin L> BH was a steamy fuzzball. Not a real good one.
10:56:26 <Betty> nice of you to solace me :-)
10:57:24 <Casey> I'll stay out of the conversation from here on out, but the discussed Lion activity from yesterday is in this video ( at 4x speed.The discussed activity is at 2:27:17 and 2:29:16. Could we have a vote on whether or not they count as minors.
11:04:08 <Eric> I personally would log them as minors and put the duration if you know it. Then anybody can make their own decision to include or not in their research.
11:04:53 <Eric> riverside I think
11:04:54 <Casey> Ok. That's helpful. Thank's Eric.
11:52:50 <Eric> rift?
11:53:12 <Eric> guess not
11:53:56 <Betty> Lion
11:54:00 <Eric> lion
11:54:02 <Casey> What a show by Lion today.
11:54:50 <Betty> GO NG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11:55:19 <Eric> wow...nice
11:55:29 <Eric> haven't seen an NG for a while
11:56:26 <Eric> Can we call that a minor?
11:57:26 <Casey> I'm staying out of that conversation now, Eric.
11:57:29 <Eric> Was over a minute, but don't think it ever reached full height.
11:58:01 <Eric> haha
12:03:46 <Casey> In all honestly, part of the excitement of geysers is the variety in their play, but it sure makes it hard to fit everything into a clearly-defined box.
12:06:14 <Eric> Yep, if they were the same very time, they would get boring
12:10:28 <ynpvisitor4> So when did they change the rules for volley ball? I thought you had to have the serve to get a point.
12:11:48 <Casey> It's been that way the last several olympics. It makes the games a whole lot shorter.
12:12:54 <Betty> I think it changed about 20 years ago
12:14:07 <ynpvisitor4> Couldn't they just have reduced the points? Way different game and confusing for us old people. What do you think Kevin?
12:14:29 <Betty> change was 1999
12:15:15 <ynpvisitor4> That is about 20 years.
12:15:40 <Jake> how is it more confusing this way?
12:15:43 <Betty> oh, true...hehe
12:16:07 <ynpvisitor4> Cuase you should not get a point unless you served.
12:16:28 <ynpvisitor4> Why keep track of who has the serve?
12:17:24 <Betty> I liked the old counting
12:18:24 <Betty> I once had a game where I made 13 points by serve in a row. That was cool :-)
12:19:07 <ynpvisitor4> Was it on a Friday?
12:19:22 <Betty> haha, no
12:23:36 <ynpvisitor4> The way they score now would be like saying a minute is 90 seconds so OF can go every hour.
12:25:36 <ynpvisitor4> We are behind the cam op
12:26:40 <Jake> Daisy ie
12:26:47 <Eric> daisy
12:27:07 <ynpvisitor4> Well enjoy of. Thanks for making me feel old about the rules.
13:45:36 <Betty> Little Anemone
14:17:19 <Jake> OF ie
14:17:21 <Jake> late
14:21:58 <Jake> buh bye everybody!
14:57:25 <Casey> Daisy
15:01:56 <Kevin L> Lot of smoke from the fire.
15:03:07 <Casey> No kidding. I'm guessing that's the one near West Yellowstone?
15:16:07 <Kevin L> I am sure it is.
17:24:11 <Casey> grand
17:32:16 <Casey> 2nd burst
17:35:48 <Casey> Daisy
17:41:54 <Casey> OF

18:43:39 <Casey> Oblong?
20:18:56 <ynpvisitor85> Is that Daisy at 2218?
20:47:59 <kcmule> OF
21:06:06 <ynpvisitor85> Castle making itself known in the moonlight
21:06:16 <ynpvisitor87> Castle ie. No clue when it started
21:07:02 <ynpvisitor85> It just started 2305ish
21:08:09 <ynpvisitor87> It showed up on GT right as I mentioned that. Glad someone saw it
