03:44:55 <Kitt> the smoke sure got bad last night in Worland
03:46:20 <ynpvisitor22> any of the fires close to you?
03:48:07 <Kitt> I think there is a fire in Montana that comes this way
03:49:34 <Kitt> haven't been able to search on computer because Bing is down?
03:55:22 <ynpvisitor3> .
03:57:23 <Kitt> Beehive

04:03:30 <Kitt> No they left yesterday
04:03:52 <Kitt> Steve and Jim are watching from the overlook
04:06:31 <Kitt> oh, I guess they are watching from the path

04:06:57 <ynpvisitor3> :)

04:16:14 <Dave from B> Morning Kitt
04:23:34 <Kitt> morning
04:23:57 <Kitt> although technically I am going back to bed to must be sleep walking
04:24:23 <Dave from B> haha...late night last night?
04:24:41 <Kitt> Steve O got his 18th Uncertain yesterday
04:25:03 <Dave from B> He seems a bit behind last year's pace on Uncertain
04:25:16 <Dave from B> Didn't he make it to 25 or so last year?
04:25:41 <Kitt> we haven't been having as many deep drains
04:26:03 <Kitt> Twilight only partially drains
04:48:22 <ynpvisitor31> .
05:16:46 <Dave from B> Latest Berry Fire Update
05:17:45 <Dave from B> Flagg Ranch Campground will be evacuated this morning. Fire is now established on both sides of the road. Protection of buildings at Flagg Rance will begin today
05:18:37 <Dave from B> Road is still closed and they are making plans for emergency travel only traffic...didn't say when this would occur.
05:20:57 <Dave from B> I'll let you know when we have a Maple Fire Update
05:26:23 <Dave from B> Maple Fire is up to 27,000 acres. Pilot Cars will be used if smoke becomes a problem on West Entrance Road
05:56:17 <ynpvisitor31> .
05:56:17 <ynpvisitor31> .
06:03:26 <ynpvisitor31> Crazy week for all of this to occur, it's busy enough when all roads are open
06:04:05 <Dave from B> Yes, with 100 year activites this week, it will be a mess.
06:08:46 <ynpvisitor31> Cool - I just heard Rebecca's voice on NPR - a promo for the "Here and Now" show
06:19:17 <Dave from B> Daisy ie
06:27:51 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
06:28:02 <Dave from B> Have your parents had to adjust any plans due to the fires?
06:28:28 <Jenna> not yet but they are going to west today to catch my brothers plane, so we'll see
06:29:02 <Jenna> smoke in west this morning https://www.facebook.com/MorningGloryCoffee/posts/10207990094443677
06:30:30 <ynpvisitor50> Big Anemone ie
06:30:32 <Dave from B> That doesn't look like fun
06:30:34 <ynpvisitor50> ended
06:33:57 <Jenna> they are leaving the park today so hopefully no more smoke/fires to deal with
06:34:35 <Dave from B> Headed home already?
06:36:14 <Jenna> no, tonight at Chico, then my dad will visit a friend near Willis overnight, couple days in SD then home Saturday
06:36:42 <Dave from B> Fun. Did they manage to hike at all?
06:37:28 <Jenna> haven't been able to chat with them enough to know that
06:37:39 <Jenna> they got the 3 burst grand but missed F&M
06:37:44 <Jenna> that's about all I know
06:38:01 <Jenna> Dad is not happy about F&M lol
06:42:25 <Jimbo Stannum> Also known as tin
06:42:52 <Jenna> I learn something every day thanks to you! haha
06:42:54 <Jimbo Stannum> "Stannum Man" actually sounds pretty cool
07:05:48 <Jimbo Stannum> time check
07:06:46 <ynpvisitor45> ?
07:07:13 <Jimbo Stannum> too lazy to convert time zones
07:10:18 <ynpvisitor22> that IS lazy....
07:11:24 <ynpvisitor31> Yesterday I watched my atomic watch ticking away the seconds and checked my cell phone against it. It was spot on.
07:12:01 <ynpvisitor31> So for those who say not to use your phone for accurate times, I say mine is good!
07:12:49 <Jimbo Stannum> The Grand prediction was 1044, and here (EDT) it was 1104, and for a moment I got confused
07:13:15 <Dave from B> actually EDT would be 1244:)
07:13:47 <Dave from B> for prediction time. I sure love being in the right time zone
07:37:46 <Dave from B> Daisy sure isn't as consistent as it used to be
07:45:12 <Dave from B> Morning Jake, Kevin
07:50:56 <Kevin L> Morning
08:04:52 <Kevin L> These 502 Bad Gateway errors are really getting old.
08:05:54 <ynpvisitor22> agree, and why is GT SO slow?
08:06:56 <ynpvisitor45> grand
08:07:13 <kc (working)> Will is at artemisia, which is ie
08:10:39 <ynpvisitor3> I cannot even post from my iPhone anymore, GT will not take the data
08:11:10 <Kevin L> That is not good.
08:11:13 <ynpvisitor3> Jake said it is a server issue, yet whatever it is, it is getting worse.
08:11:25 <ynpvisitor3> I have stopped telling folks about the site
08:12:12 <ynpvisitor3> no sense having them go there and not be able to use it
08:13:08 <ynpvisitor57> https://www.facebook.com/YellowstoneNationalParkVisitor/posts/10154247089059504
08:13:22 <ynpvisitor3> Will could have posted Artemisia from Grand
08:14:12 <ynpvisitor3> 57, thanks for the post, more stupid people
08:14:24 <ynpvisitor57> Just incredible...
08:15:47 <Kevin L> Nice 2nd
08:16:16 <ynpvisitor3> really nice
08:16:33 <Dave from B> What thermal feeature was the FB link from
08:16:44 <ynpvisitor57> Shell spring i think
08:17:41 <Kevin L> Think 2 is it
08:18:07 <Dave from B> Thanks 57
08:20:48 <ynpvisitor31> looks like Shell, yes
08:22:08 <Jake> I don't have an update on the 502 issues. I haven't been able to get a hold of Paul. If the issue persists, I'll move GT to a new host but I don't have a timeline for doing that yet.
08:24:13 <Jake> I don't know why the issue would affect iPhones any more than any other device
08:29:04 <ynpvisitor31> I have a q for you Jake - sometimes it wants me to sign in again - but if I use my bookmark it starts a new session with me already signed in.Is there a "timeout" on some sessions? fine
08:30:11 <kc (working)> last OF was short per vec tweet
08:30:46 <Jake> I think it's set to no "timeout" or 1 year...I can't remember. You get that behavior in the same web browser?
08:30:53 <Kevin L> TY kc
08:31:29 <kc (working)> yw
08:32:26 <ynpvisitor31> I think it was less than a year, lol. It's in firefox, and when I have more than one GT tab going.
08:34:17 <Jake> the session is saved with a cookie. If the cookie is deleted or you're in incognito mode, the site won't start with you logged in. Something is happening where the site can't find the cookie
08:35:00 <Jake> could be a "feature" of Firefox to not reuse cookies between tabs
08:40:32 <ynpvisitor31> or between physical sessions of actually looking at data, that may be it. It's when I come back to an N=X and try to edit one in that group
08:53:28 <ynpvisitor38> on my phone, it wlll let me enter all the data, yet when I click SUBMIT, it just spins around with the silly reticulating spines, or whatever...
08:55:54 <Jake> and then displays "502 Bad Gateway" or just continues spinning?
08:56:48 <kc (working)> .
08:56:50 <kc (working)> that happens on my pc too. keeps spinning indefinitely. usually just have to reload the frame and do it again
08:57:17 <kc (working)> prob not a related issue, but my chat entries are often delayed or eaten entirely
08:58:07 <Dave from B> Yes, my posts here have been slow to post for about 2 weeks now
08:58:44 <Dave from B> some not all
08:59:11 <Kevin L> Same here.
08:59:12 <Jake> I think it's all related to server load
08:59:44 <kc (working)> most prob know already, but up-arrow here will show you your last entries, in case a long sentence gets eaten
09:00:25 <Dave from B> Thanks for the tip, kc...didn't know
09:00:57 <kc (working)> yw
09:01:42 <Jake> you can see the response time to the server inside this chatbox, lower right...right now mine says 70ms (milliseconds). When the chat is eating messages, it's in the 6000 - 15000 (6sec to 15sec) range
09:01:48 <ynpvisitor38> sorry, was afk, mine just keeps spinning on my phone in that instance
09:01:57 <ynpvisitor63> I know that trick kc, that's how I managed to resend something twice accidentally
09:02:11 <ynpvisitor38> I get a LOT of bad gateways, both on my phone and laptop at other times
09:03:26 <ynpvisitor38> Hopefully something can be done
09:17:08 <Kevin L> Daisy
09:21:15 <Dave from B> A Type II team has been ordered for the Berry Fire. It is Level III
09:24:12 <Jake> Flagg Ranch evacuated
09:31:31 <Jimbo Stannum> Is there a key to the Grand codes anywhere? I know the number is the number of bursts and T means Turban start (classic?), but the Ds, Gs, and Qs I can't recall.
09:32:11 <Jimbo Stannum> V must be Vent
09:32:13 <Kevin L> http://geysertimes.org/glossary.php
09:32:23 <Jimbo Stannum> Thank you!
09:32:29 <Kevin L> It is down a bit.
09:34:27 <Kevin L> Well my kid is on the plane. Hope it works this time!
09:50:03 <Jake> I took a stab at fixing the 502 issue. Please report the next time you get one. First reporter will receive a cookie.
09:52:04 <Eric> looking good Jake
09:53:02 <Jake> the site feels snappier now, but the 502's were intermittent so I'll temper my hope
09:53:26 <Eric> The 502s where occuring here too
09:53:32 <Eric> it's definitely a server issue
09:53:42 <Eric> Did you do something to affect the whole server?
10:11:50 <Kevin L> Long interval on Lion.
10:14:59 <Kevin L> Gee, we made it down to the 60s last night. Looks like Summer is ending.
10:18:14 <Betty> you got snow, Kevin?
10:18:53 <Kevin L> I know the depot was nice this morning. Last week it was 93 in there in the morning.
10:19:15 <Betty> ugh
10:20:49 <Kevin L> If the humidity is low, that isn't too bad. The swamper will knock that to the 70s in just a few minutes. Humidity is horrible today though. 48 now and was 88 last night.
10:22:04 <Kevin L> Looks like another slow day for you Betty. Not a whole lot due.
10:22:21 <Betty> Lion is due
10:25:06 <Kevin L> Aurum too!
10:25:19 <Kevin L> Lion has been spitting.
10:25:23 <Betty> great
10:46:54 <Kevin L> Lot of smoke on Washburn cams.
10:53:48 <Eric> I got 3 502 errors a little while ago :-(
10:53:53 <Eric> cookie please
10:54:28 <Betty> hi Eric
10:54:36 <Eric> Hi Betty!
11:09:12 <Kevin L> OF going way long again.
11:16:05 <Eric> Maybe it won't erupt
11:17:09 <Kevin L> 110m now
11:18:44 <Betty> someone broke OF and Lion :-(
11:18:59 <Eric> Would be an epic day if OF didn't erupt
11:19:22 <Kevin L> Dave broke them.
11:19:30 <Eric> he does that
11:20:27 <Eric> when was the last 120+ OF?
11:20:41 <Kevin L> I think I have only seen one.
11:21:06 <kc (working)> last was only a couple weeks ago
11:21:09 <Eric> I remember a day we got really close....
11:24:09 <Kevin L> We are close again.
11:25:07 <Betty> only 1 minute left
11:25:11 <Dave from B> Blame me for anything, but not for breaking the national treasure, please....I could receive death threats.
11:25:38 <Eric> OF
11:25:47 <Betty> 2h mark
11:25:50 <kc (working)> aug 5
11:26:07 <Eric> didn't quite make the 2h
11:26:08 <kc (working)> still 1325 on my clock fwiw
11:26:13 <Eric> 1:59
11:26:14 <Betty> hi kc and Dave, btw
11:26:21 <kc (working)> hola
11:27:22 <Betty> when Eric called it, it was at the 2h mark at my Last known eruption list
11:28:38 <Kevin L> And another short!
11:28:44 <kc (working)> another short?
11:28:48 <Betty> wow
11:29:07 <kc (working)> seems to happen a lot on long intervals, altho i havent studied data on it
11:29:29 <Eric> long wait for a short payoff
11:31:41 <Kevin L> I knew a slot machine like that once.
11:33:19 <Jake> well darn, Eric. Your cookie is in the mail
11:38:12 <Kevin L> Big Snickerdoodle?
11:38:39 <Eric> I understand the problem on the server Jake, I would need root permissions to fix or have cpt. bunzo fix it.
11:39:06 <Kevin L> I have some tannerite....
11:39:21 <Eric> Could possibly be fixed in another way, but without access to log files....I cannot directly determine that issue.
11:39:54 <Eric> anyway....gotta go grab some lunch. Cya all soon :-D
11:40:04 <Kevin L> Enjoy
11:40:48 <Betty> LC
12:16:27 <Betty> LC
12:24:24 <Eric> OF
12:27:28 <Eric> long
12:49:09 <Betty> LC
12:52:54 <Kevin L> Daisy
12:59:26 <Betty> bah, missed it
13:06:15 <Eric> Dang, didn't jump on it quick enough...2,3,4th cabin room was open there for a bit.
13:06:32 <Dave from B> Keep trying!
13:08:46 <Eric> those $88 cabins in a row don't come often
13:14:59 <Jake> I've been clicking all over GT trying to find a 502 and haven't yet
13:15:08 <Jake> it's like hunting Pokemon
13:15:46 <Kevin L> i had 3 this morning but none since.
13:16:41 <Dave from B> Eric, there will be plenty of csancellations once fires really hit the national news
13:17:23 <Jake> oh, that would be some wonderful data to see!
13:18:10 <Jake> fires could keep the park from total record visitation this year, too? or is that already a done deal?
13:20:38 <Dave from B> Jake, A drop off in Sept/Oct may prevent a record
13:21:08 <Dave from B> I'll let you know once I see Aug numbers
13:23:28 <Jake> Lion is having a very long (GT) interval right now
13:23:29 <Jake> LC
13:24:07 <Jake> almost 17 hours on Lion
13:24:18 <Dave from B> wow
13:24:37 <Dave from B> Dave does a good job of catching it overnight, so that could be a true interval
13:24:53 <Jake> that's what I was thinking
13:26:10 <Kevin L> This is the longest interval on Lion that I remember.
13:26:47 <Jake> there's an 18 hour in the last 500 intervals
13:27:09 <Jake> I didn't investigate further for how real that might be
13:27:55 <Dave from B> Time to walk to Lion
13:29:46 <Jake> I'm with you if you change "to" to "away from"
13:31:16 <Dave from B> C'mon Jake!
13:31:22 <Dave from B> It's going to go any minute
13:32:04 <Jake> we have different philosophies
13:32:41 <Eric> There was a small gap in OF reporting last night, so possible Lion slipped into that same gap.
13:33:37 <Jake> when geysers start doing "longest interval in X months" sort of thing, I think there's higher probability of it doing new & erratic behavior VS it being totally due to erupt any minute now
13:37:50 <Dave from B> True, Jake...but I will want to be there to be part of history!:)
13:39:00 <Dave from B> I'll have sat there so long that I'll be singing....
13:39:30 <Dave from B> do I need to say the lyrics too or is it already stuck in your head?
13:41:16 <Jake> The Waiting is the Hardest Part?
13:41:26 <Jake> Take This Job and Shove It?
13:41:41 <Jake> I'm a Loser Baby so Why Don't You Kill Me?
13:42:01 <Jake> You Don't Hide Your Lion Eyes?
13:42:30 <Jake> I'm Gonna Soak Up The Sun?
13:43:18 <Dave from B> :D
13:43:57 <Jake> oh, it's Can't Hide your lion eyes...
13:45:31 <Dave from B> Eagles would be much better than Disney lyrics
13:48:06 <Dave from B> Huge crowd at Lion or people passing thru?
13:51:27 <Betty> Bijou was off yesterday
13:52:35 <Kevin L> Dave broke itt too?
13:52:55 <Betty> people passing thru
13:56:46 <Casey> I've been busy all day, let's hope lion was just waiting for me.
13:58:10 <Kevin L> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7mDzwYcZiM
13:58:55 <Casey> That's great, Kevin
13:59:00 <Betty> hi Casey, hopefully
13:59:33 <Betty> haha
13:59:37 <Casey> Hi Betty
14:00:25 <Betty> OF
14:04:07 <Kevin L> Hey Betty, I got an ad for a German train store in Canada today. Funny thing is they are cheaper than I can get both from Germany or in the US. And they are in Vancouver so they bring things down to the US so there is no exchange rate and it is US shipping costs.
14:04:44 <Betty> hey, that sounds good
14:06:34 <Kevin L> I may have to pick up a few things.
14:08:09 <Kevin L> All of my engines are from the mid 70's. They have improved since then. May replace a few.
14:17:37 <Casey> I hate it, but I have to head out again. Enjoy the epic Lion ini that is sure to come.
14:18:18 <Betty> bye, Casey
14:18:53 <Betty> a smoke cloud over Lion?
14:19:12 <Kevin L> Cam coverage will be off & on for the rest of the day.
14:19:40 <Kevin L> Big fire there Betty. Check it out when the sun goes down. It was really glowing last night.
14:22:21 <Kevin L> http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4944/
14:24:55 <Betty> well, time to head out. Hope Lion will go soon
14:25:42 <Kevin L> Night
14:43:49 <Andrew> zzzzzzzzz
14:45:02 <Kevin L> Wake up Andrew!
14:45:50 <Andrew> oh...sorry kevin
14:46:08 <Andrew> *wolfs down a few nodoz* I guess aurum and grand are due
14:46:15 <Kevin L> We should get a Turban in 5m
14:47:01 <Biddle> that fire is really big
14:47:06 <Andrew> we are zoomed out because aurum though right?
14:49:07 <Dave from B> Lion is due...over 18 hours
14:49:18 <Dave from B> Hi Andrew, Biddle
14:49:44 <Dave from B> Sorry...have to finish the day downstairs. Have a great evening everyone!
14:50:09 <Eric> Night Dave
14:50:33 <Andrew> go sell some fish
14:50:46 <Biddle> Hi Dave, Eric, Andrew, Kevin...
14:51:31 <Kevin L> ZHi

14:53:46 <Kevin L> Yea!
14:54:06 <Biddle> Thats a nice Geyser
15:06:35 <Eric> oh man...walk away for a second and miss an 18 hour interval!
15:06:47 <Eric> LC
15:08:14 <ynpvisitor21> Did lion finally erupt? It's still not on GT
15:08:42 <Kevin L> Yes it did.
15:08:46 <Andrew> it did i can stick that in
15:10:26 <Andrew> jake if you are in here, start was 32
15:10:52 <Andrew> wait i was looking at little cub never mind
15:28:49 <ynpvisitor14> Daisy
16:29:14 <Kevin L> .
16:30:01 <Kevin L> .
16:30:14 <Kevin L> Grand ie
16:30:41 <Kevin L> Took 3 times for the post to show up. :p
16:50:34 <ynpvisitor17> OF ie ne
17:51:13 <Art> Lion?
17:51:43 <ynpvisitor27> Yup
17:51:56 <Art> Nice reward for those hoping for Bee
17:56:18 <Eric> Hi Art :-) Nice evening either way
17:56:30 <Eric> Castle
17:56:35 <Eric> I assume
17:56:49 <Eric> ohh, 1746 major
17:58:21 <Art> Hi, just 3 days till we will be in the park
17:58:29 <Eric> Nice
17:58:47 <Eric> I hope the fires don't cause too much grief
17:59:09 <Eric> and F&M seems pretty cooperative lately
17:59:49 <Art> Yeah we've had to deal with closures in years past, nothing too major but seems like just part of the late summer in the park
18:00:40 <Eric> Beautiful night to sit out by BH and relax
18:00:47 <Art> Fingers crossed on F&M, did not get it back in June, 8-9 day interval :(
18:01:10 <Eric> If you don't get it this time...blame Dave :-D
18:03:03 <Art> Last year no eruptions at all during our two weeks
18:03:35 <Art> So it's been about 2 years since the last one we've seen!
18:03:44 <Eric> Well, I have my fingers crossed for you...whatever that is worth.
18:04:12 <Art> thanks ;)
18:09:15 <Eric> Well, I hope you guys have a nice BH before dark.
18:13:14 <ynpvisitor27> Beehive must be taking tease lessons from Aurum.
18:27:35 <ynpvisitor3> wow. you can really see the smoke plumes tonight
18:28:35 <Kevin L> BH has been averaging about 15h so it is not really late. Also when it gets dark (hopefully after BH) keep an eye out for fires glowing above the horizon in the area between OF and Lion. Pretty interesting last night.
18:28:39 <Art> Read something about possible pilot cars if the smoke gets too bad in west?
18:29:26 <Kevin L> Last I heard they were talking about it, but weren't doing it yet.
18:29:37 <Art> I really want some taco bus but not sure I want to risk getting stuck in west ;)
18:29:53 <Art> But man are those good tacos
18:30:38 <Kevin L> Hopefully it will be knocked down by then, but that is what I said when I came in July 1988.
