22:02:46 <Casey> .
22:02:47 <Casey> .
22:02:47 <Casey> .
22:03:40 <ynpvisitor42> No indy
22:03:51 <Casey> I didn't see one
22:04:55 <Betty> Casey, nice
22:05:11 <Betty> catch
22:05:51 <Betty> Kevin wanted a no indy
22:06:28 <Casey> He got it, just half an hour too late
22:10:53 <Betty> Well, good time to head out. Night all
22:11:11 <Casey> Night
23:13:36 <Casey> Daisy
23:15:55 <Casey> Grand
23:16:02 <Casey> Maybe F&M too
23:16:17 <Casey> Or is that a late riverside
23:16:52 <Casey> looks like riverside now
04:35:01 <ynpvisitor17> hi
05:52:18 <Jimbo Pm> Pm is the elemental symbol for Promethium
06:11:47 <ynpvisitor18> OF 0810 ie
06:19:45 <Jimbo Pm> Dang! Go Castle!
06:21:27 <Kevin L> No F&M yet.
06:53:24 <Kevin L> Grand
07:16:38 <ynpvisitor6> looks cold
07:28:28 <Jimbo Pm> Kent, I was worried for a minute
07:28:28 <Kent> Twice in the last month I have picked up a piece of malware when logging onto chat. It tells me to call Microsoft or my computer will be shut down. This happening to anyone else? I immediately shut my browser down using the task manager and haven’t had any problems. I do not click anything on the screen in an attempt to shut down.
07:29:00 <Kent> I am using Firefox
07:31:42 <Kevin L> This is a scam. You have a virus that was picked up somewhere else, but will pop up every once in a while. My wife got this one from something on facebook.
07:32:09 <Kent> Jimbo, I figured that since I saw already 2/3s of the way to hell I ought to go the last bit if only for a few minutes. :)
07:32:46 <Kent> I ran a complete scan of my box and hope that did the trick. Thanks Kevin
07:33:10 <Jimbo Pm> Cleveland hasn't won the Woprld Series or Super Bowl yet, so apocalypse is not imminent
07:33:14 <Jimbo Pm> World
07:33:48 <Kevin L> Don't call the number or they will really "fix" your computer. There are even cases that they will call you when this pops up. Hang up on them.
07:34:56 <Kent> Is Gordon Liddy still alive? I have a job for him :)
07:37:52 <Kent> I am planning on the apocalypse shortly after November 8. I will be in Armageddon on Dec 3rd so may have a front row seat.
07:43:50 <Kent> 0942 by my screen
07:46:59 <Kent> New name for the combined Association/Foundation is “Yellowstone Forever.” Sounds like Hallmark won the naming competition.
07:55:16 <Kevin L> Sounds like a superhero movie
08:17:05 <Kevin L> Daisy
09:22:51 <Kevin L> OF
09:35:45 <ynpvisitor62> how long is Betty there for?
09:36:17 <Kevin L> Not sure, but she should be in the basin now.
09:36:33 <ynpvisitor62> I saw she posted on GT when she got back to West yesterday
09:37:01 <ynpvisitor62> I hope she gets a nice BH this afternoon
09:41:44 <Kevin L> She said she only will do the day ones, so I hope she gets the next one.
09:42:22 <Kevin L> She was on late last night and did get the one on the cam.
09:48:13 <Kevin L> Looks like it could be one of those days that you have to pick Grand or BH.
10:41:30 <Casey> YAY!
10:41:34 <Kevin L> Aurum
10:42:38 <Casey> You are fast posting on GT
10:42:41 <Kevin L> Been a while since I snagged one of those!
10:42:49 <Kevin L> Hope Betty was up there.
10:57:35 <ynpvisitor10> Here for a 12 hour bh.
10:58:39 <Kevin L> You have 2m
10:59:49 <Kevin L> Glad Aurum didn't go now.
11:29:26 <Kevin L> Looks like Grotto
11:31:30 <Kevin L> Daisy
12:07:56 <BenVL> The temperature says -328
12:08:50 <ynpvisitor10> Zero wind. I think the gizmo is not connected.
12:09:21 <BenVL> Makes sense
12:09:28 <ynpvisitor61> How many layers would protect from that ?
12:09:57 <Casey> It's done that a couple times lately. I am kind of curious why that is the number it defaults to though.
12:10:22 <BenVL> enough to crush you beneath their weight
12:19:40 <ynpvisitor8> That is equal to -200 C which is probably the lowest reading on the weather stations thermometer.
12:20:16 <Kevin L> Hope it doesn't get that cold!
12:21:13 <Casey> Well done 8. Good thought to convert it to C.
12:24:25 <ynpvisitor8> Also, I have contact NOAA about their faulty equipment/reporting...we will see what they say.
12:25:50 <Kevin L> This is the site they use. The last 4 readings have been bad. http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/getobext.php?sid=OFAW4&table=1&banner=off
12:27:46 <Kevin L> You can also get the forecast site by clicking the weather data on this page, but the other one has history on it.
12:30:18 <ynpvisitor61> Only Weathermen and TV producers can be wrong half the time and keep their jobs.
12:30:44 <Kevin L> You forgot politicians.
12:30:56 <Casey> He said only half the time, Kevin.
12:31:14 <Kevin L> Good point!
12:32:36 <ynpvisitor61> Don't point. That's a microagression.
12:33:37 <Kevin L> OF
12:33:41 <ynpvisitor61> And the crowd goes wild.
12:34:00 <Casey> I've been called out on that one more times than I can count. Apparently I'm habitually micro-aggressive.
12:34:11 <Casey> Or really bad at counting
12:34:17 <Kevin L> Back in the day we always wondered how much money Kodak made on every eruption.
12:36:54 <Casey> I'm sure Kodak wishes they could have those days back.
12:37:41 <Kevin L> Are they even around anymore?
12:38:54 <Casey> They filed bankruptcy at some point, but I think at least in name they still exist.
12:38:57 <ynpvisitor10> Last I saw, they had digitals. Or had their name on them. I am not sure they survived.
12:39:14 <ynpvisitor61> They stiil say "Film at eleven", whatevever film is.
12:39:43 <Kevin L> I had one of their digitals and it wasn't bad.
12:40:18 <Kevin L> I had one of their digitals and it wasn't bad. I think they still use film in movies to shoot it and then convert to digital.
12:40:19 <ynpvisitor10> Google says they are still around. Did not read what they do.
12:41:00 <ynpvisitor61> Printers for PCs
12:41:43 <ynpvisitor10> That is a loosing business. Look at HP.
12:43:01 <Kevin L> I quit using HP printers. Their ink & toner costs killed me. Using Brother now.
12:44:03 <ynpvisitor61> At least it's not VCRs and sliderules.
12:44:40 <Kevin L> Funny you should mention slide rules. I was just playing with one!
12:45:37 <ynpvisitor61> You are either Old School, or Pre-School.
12:45:42 <Casey> I heard just a month or two ago that the last company still making VCRs was finally stopping production.
12:45:49 <ynpvisitor10> I liked my last 2 HP lasers. Except they never worked all the time. I have a Brother now, and the toner cost is horrible. I am lucky and have not had to replace it yet. Plus you have to replace the drum separate. The HP's had the drum in the toner.
12:47:35 <ynpvisitor10> Slide rules will never make a comeback. They make people think. Thinking as a subject they no longer teach.
12:48:21 <Kevin L> The last HP laser I had (and I have used HP since the HP IIp) was working fine but they would not upgrade software to work with Win 10. Bought a Brother L23200 and I love it.
12:49:50 <Kevin L> The slide rule is one my wife found in her Father's stuff. I used them as a kid and still love them. All my kids know how to do the basics. I even used one on some of the design on I-515 in Las Vegas.
12:51:00 <ynpvisitor61> No wonder I missed my exit.
12:51:15 <ynpvisitor61> Just kidding
12:51:23 <Kevin L> :)
12:52:50 <ynpvisitor10> Why is it that when they drew plans with a pencil, and did calculations with slide rules and by hand, they could build things that lasted and in months? Now it takes them years to replace a 50 or 75 year old bridge, and the new bridge is only expected to last for 10 to 20 years.
12:53:02 <Kevin L> There was a guy in church once that was complaining about something on the road. His comment started "I don't know who designs these things..." . I was sitting right behind him with a big grin on my face.
12:54:52 <Casey> Looks like Riverside
12:55:05 <Kevin L> I think you are correct.
12:55:42 <Kevin L> 1451 per JimS. Bet he isn't down there for Riverside though.
12:56:08 <ynpvisitor10> Riverside is in the correct place today.
12:56:25 <Casey> Exactly. It was really trick yesterday.
12:59:33 <ynpvisitor10> Enjoy the coyotes.
13:06:32 <Casey> Ok. Enough of this speculating about steam. I'm ready for something on this side of the trees.
13:06:57 <Kevin L> Well we did get an Aurum today.
13:07:53 <Casey> Good point. Good visibility of it too.
13:08:17 <Kevin L> BH shouldn't be much longer.
13:09:38 <Casey> I hope. You didn't miss it by much last night.
13:12:57 <ynpvisitor8> ok...weather now reports if unavailable correctly and zero windspeeds/direction are now accounted for.
13:13:22 <ynpvisitor8> hopefully...haven't tested it against real numbers yet, but should work.
13:13:44 <Casey> I'm feeling warmer already
13:13:45 <Kevin L> Turban?
13:14:20 <ynpvisitor8> Don't want people to cancel their trips to yellowstone due to -326 degree temps :-P
13:15:35 <ynpvisitor61> Or West Ttriplet is going berserk.
13:21:31 <ynpvisitor8> Lion
13:21:31 <Kevin L> Here you are Casey
13:21:48 <Casey> Thanks Kevin
13:33:22 <ynpvisitor41> https://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=pws:MFOFW4 weather station that looks like it is somewhere near the Old Faithful Lodge
13:33:32 <ynpvisitor41> https://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=pws:MFOFW4
13:34:01 <ynpvisitor41> nevermind it won't fit
13:35:48 <ynpvisitor61> Cooler this afternoon with a chance of Beehive.
13:36:22 <ynpvisitor8> last update 9/1 41...so not such a great source
13:37:00 <ynpvisitor8> woops...never mind
13:39:45 <ynpvisitor8> could it be from one of the static cameras or VEC?
13:41:01 <ynpvisitor8> didn't the usgs have a webcam in UGB?
13:42:02 <ynpvisitor29> Grand
13:42:46 <ynpvisitor29> Oblong
13:43:06 <ynpvisitor29> ??
13:43:20 <ynpvisitor29> think Oblong
13:43:40 <ynpvisitor41> says so on Geyser Times

13:48:55 <ynpvisitor8> ugg
13:55:21 <ynpvisitor41> apparently I got kicked
13:55:55 <Kevin L> It doesn't like you for some reason.
14:00:34 <ynpvisitor89> Sometimes it does that if something is resting on your keyboard or you have sticky keys on
14:00:57 <Bodd;e> darn small text
14:01:36 <Kevin L> Hi Biddle
14:01:50 <Kevin L> Been drinking too much Apple Beer?

14:06:23 <Biddle> Nice of it to wait for OF
14:06:35 <Kevin L> Did anyone get OF time?
14:06:54 <Biddle> No, but im guessing 302 NS

14:09:16 <Kitt> at least it had an indy
14:09:46 <Biddle> Wow, my computers clock is an hour behind.
14:10:31 <ynpvisitor41> I feel like the number of people on here just multiplied by 2
14:10:37 <Kevin L> .
14:10:49 <Kitt> still looks cold in Yellowstone
14:11:15 <Kitt> we saw the sun briefly in Worland and now it is gray and gloomy again
14:11:52 <Kevin L> Sun is down here with me.
14:12:04 <Andy> yeah I got sun too
14:13:05 <Kitt> I appreciated the text
14:13:18 <Kitt> was reading a letter from my son

15:29:33 <Andy> aurum
15:29:59 <Kevin L> And a LOT of of steam
15:30:55 <Kevin L> 2 in one day! Awesome!
15:31:15 <Kevin L> I was not expecting that!
15:32:10 <ynpvisitor8> made by: http://www.dunganddunger.net/
15:35:09 <Kevin L> There does seem to be a lot of that flying around on the TV commercials here right now.
15:35:56 <Kevin L> I wonder if they can collect that from the park or if it has to come from outside the park.
15:36:43 <Kevin L> On that note, it is time to take care of my chickens.
16:11:56 <ynpvisitor62> I see someone fixed the weather bug
18:50:42 <ynpvisitor43> 1050. OF
20:37:58 <ynpvisitor23> Of ie
20:49:31 <ynpvisitor35> F&m steam
20:53:27 <ynpvisitor46> Now it's looking like grotto
21:02:21 <ynpvisitor46> I know it happens every month, but these full moon webcam views are amazing.
21:02:36 <ynpvisitor13> agreed
21:03:28 <ynpvisitor13> Castle
21:08:48 <ynpvisitor13> Fireball!
21:09:18 <ynpvisitor13> or a sattelite
21:10:01 <ynpvisitor13> Lion IW

21:11:05 <ynpvisitor13> probably initial
21:11:18 <ynpvisitor46> Very nice
21:13:23 <ynpvisitor10> Good show tonight
21:13:40 <ynpvisitor13> Looks like castle has ended. Another minor.
21:15:13 <ynpvisitor46> Coyote
21:25:24 <ynpvisitor13> castle is still ie. I stand corrected.
