04:12:04 <ynpvisitor42> hi
04:51:50 <Dave from B> Good morning numbers between 10 and 88
04:52:21 <ynpvisitor75> morning Dave, lc here
04:54:21 <Dave from B> Hi lc!
04:58:42 <Dave from B> How you doing?
04:59:47 <ynpvisitor75> doing ok
05:00:15 <ynpvisitor75> you?
05:00:20 <ynpvisitor75> ?
05:00:50 <Dave from B> Pretty good. As usual never get enough sleep.
05:01:24 <ynpvisitor75> understand that.
05:03:20 <Dave from B> Headed to Great Falls for soccer tomorrow
05:04:03 <ynpvisitor75> all week end?
05:07:15 <Dave from B> Yes, 1 game Friday afternoon and 1 Saturday morning
05:07:47 <Dave from B> 2 easy games for the team. They should be tied for second after the weekend.
05:09:05 <Dave from B> However, after 4 games they have lost 2 attacking players to season ending injuries
05:10:41 <ynpvisitor75> that hurts.
05:11:42 <Dave from B> This team has been beset by injuries for 2 years. When you have very little depth if really hurts your chances to do well at state.
05:18:17 <ynpvisitor75> hard to overcome loss of one top player
05:20:30 <Dave from B> Becca finally turned in her application to University of Portland. We're waiting to see if she gets accepted and then the most important part....are they going to give her enough money to be able to gothere.
05:23:20 <ynpvisitor75> our boys got almost no help, Jason got 1k plus a little for playing in the band and Nathan got nothing.
05:24:14 <ynpvisitor75> they did go in state, that helped some.
05:24:39 <Dave from B> Sounds like Taylor's experience
05:25:02 <Dave from B> UP is a little different plus Becca scored high enough on ACT to earn a better offer.
05:26:01 <ynpvisitor75> and it cost a lot more now.
05:26:54 <Dave from B> She has been told to expect 7500 to 20000 in support per year...It needs to be above 15
05:27:42 <ynpvisitor75> that is a lot.
05:28:25 <Dave from B> Education costs are crazy
05:28:57 <ynpvisitor75> for sure.
05:35:18 <Dave from B> Have you been able to walk with all the rainy weather you've had?
05:36:37 <ynpvisitor75> very little since we have been home. just doing yard work.
05:59:49 <Jimbo Terbium> another rare earth element
06:00:31 <Jimbo Terbium> there's terbium on Euro notes
06:06:32 <Jimbo Terbium> OF
06:06:45 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna, Jimbo
06:08:34 <Jenna> morning Dave
06:09:38 <ynpvisitor75> was that long?
06:09:55 <ynpvisitor75> couldn't see last water.
06:27:09 <ynpvisitor32> 75 -- yes
06:27:42 <ynpvisitor75> ok, thanks
06:29:08 <Kevin L> You know it is a bad morning when you Davespeak your own name!
06:29:47 <ynpvisitor75> what is that now?
06:31:27 <Dave from B> It looks like a mess now...where did it start?
06:31:44 <Dave from B> need help spelling your own name?:)
06:32:49 <Dave from B> Cold morning...Grotto start?
06:33:26 <ynpvisitor75> praobably
06:39:44 <Kevin L> I don't think I am really awake. This must be a dream.
06:42:05 <Jimbo Terbium> Nobody said Daisy, so I will
06:44:24 <Betty> Morning guys
06:44:26 <Jake> "A geyser whose name goes unsaid shall have never erupted. A geyser whose eruption is recorded in GeyserTimes shall be exalted." -- Abraham Lincoln
06:44:53 <Jake> morning Betty et al
06:45:07 <Betty> hi Jake
06:45:22 <ynpvisitor75> morning
06:45:23 <ynpvisitor23> Are you in the park Betty?
06:46:15 <Betty> not anymore. I'm leaving the US today
06:46:41 <ynpvisitor23> I hope you had a good visit
06:47:11 <Dave from B> haha Jake
06:47:23 <Dave from B> Morning Betty, Jake
06:47:27 <Betty> i enjoyed every minute -als usual :-)
06:48:00 <Betty> morning Dave from B
06:54:16 <Dave from B> What have you been doing in Vegas?
06:55:05 <Betty> We've been to Valley of Fire yesterday
06:58:14 <Kevin L> Fun place. Weather was good for it.
06:59:05 <ynpvisitor75> that Oblong?
06:59:48 <ynpvisitor32> no
07:00:09 <ynpvisitor75> Grotto
07:00:29 <ynpvisitor32> probably
07:04:15 <Betty> hi Kevin. Do you need a cock for your chicken? There is one at, how was it called? Robert's Spring? A really nice one. I think someone did not want him in the neighbourhood anymore
07:10:26 <Betty> I sent you a picture
07:17:38 <Betty> heading to the pool. Bbl
07:23:45 <ynpvisitor12> hey Jake - can you tell GT that "VR" is a meaningful comment?
07:24:47 <Jake> "VR..." is meaningful or "VR "
07:25:53 <Jake> the extra periods add meaning
07:26:09 <Jake> but to answer your question, no, not at this time
07:26:45 <ynpvisitor12> so you are saying that adding periods it might accept it as "meaningful"?
07:26:58 <ynpvisitor16> or you can do "Visitor Report"
07:27:14 <ynpvisitor16> it is looking for a string of at least 5 characters
07:27:33 <ynpvisitor12> I did that 16, I just was surprised when VR didn't work
07:28:22 <ynpvisitor12> "per VR" would be an expedient way, thanks
07:29:24 <Kitt> good morning
07:29:32 <Kitt> a soggy day in the basin I see
07:30:29 <Dave from B> Morning Kitt, Will, kc
07:30:33 <ynpvisitor12> I did think it was amusing that it didn't accept VR, is that a sort of safeguard against nonsensical comments?
07:30:53 <Kevin L> Morning Kitt et al
07:31:23 <Kitt> so what is the temp in Vegas today?
07:32:02 <Kitt> Looks like fluffy wants the cam today
07:32:22 <Kevin L> Pretty cool. Let me check the station.
07:32:39 <Jake> it's a simple measure of meaningful-ness to have at least 5 characters in the comment. there's nothing stopping anyone from putting in 5 spaces, but it provides an opportunity to explain the ? on the entry
07:33:00 <Kitt> so which goes first today, fuzzy fluffy, Grand, or Bee
07:33:41 <Kevin L> 75 right now Kitt.
07:34:16 <Jake> OF, Grand, OF, BH in that order
07:34:40 <Kitt> we are a gloomy 54 degrees in Worland
07:35:16 <ynpvisitor12> should all VR's have a ?, then? (based on our opinion of trust-worthiness)
07:38:46 <Jake> I dunno. GT has made the concept of VR somewhat mushy.
07:38:48 <Dave from B> I say OF, Grand (During OF) and BH
07:40:14 <Jake> I make no claim as to what an entrant might consider as either questionable or a VR. If the source is somewhat untrustworthy, I would add a ? and/or VR
07:40:42 <Jake> but it's up to each individual what level of certainty they wish to convey for an entry
07:42:36 <ynpvisitor12> Agreed. It depends on a few factors.
07:43:07 <Jake> GT includes reports of eruptions from registered users that in years past would have been considered "VR"'s just an observation from some yahoo outside the known gazing circles
07:43:13 <Kitt> so is that turban?
07:43:21 <Kitt> fluffy
07:43:23 <Jake> OF
07:43:32 <Kitt> 0943
07:43:35 <Kitt> wc
07:43:37 <Jake> probably Turban. too small for Oblong
07:44:07 <ynpvisitor12> good point Jake. Remember the years of only the chosen few "allowed" to write in the logbook?
07:44:40 <ynpvisitor12> Today I could not write in the logbook, but if I stood outside the VC and called it on 4.5 it would get entered
07:45:32 <some yahoo> Did not know Gazers were snobs!
07:45:51 <Jake> I wanted GT to model the logbook but with names attached to the entries
07:46:08 <Jake> some yahoo, if you didn't know that, where have you been? ;)
07:46:38 <ynpvisitor12> there are a few things to consider - 1 - is their clock accurate and more important 2- do they actually know the name of what they saw and 3- did it really erupt
07:47:20 <Jake> yes, big factors all of those
07:47:52 <Jake> and the level of scrutiny should rise with the rarity/size of the geyser
07:48:06 <ynpvisitor12> so now an unknown user enters something and we must *trust* them
07:48:29 <ynpvisitor12> or flag them :D :D
07:48:30 <Will B> a user can always ignore data
07:48:51 <Jake> I've been pleased with the quality of reports from unknown users
07:49:07 <Jake> overall
07:49:12 <ynpvisitor12> knowing where signs are placed helps with misidentification too, and talking with the people asking what they saw
07:50:00 <ynpvisitor12> but that's for real time, in person, not for GT entries from New User
07:57:28 <Will B> why are links not opening in new windows any more?
07:57:35 <Will B> on this chat
08:16:06 <Jake> Depression looks hot
08:28:53 <Kevin L> I already miss the Turban times.
08:36:57 <Jake> ding
08:36:58 <Jake> ding
08:36:59 <Jake> ding
08:37:02 <kc (working)> dinger
08:37:05 <Dave from B> Thanks
08:37:22 <Jake> 1036 ie
08:37:48 <Kitt> wow almost visited with Will too long
08:38:14 <Jimbo Terbium> Hello
08:38:21 <Kitt> did a text get sent?
08:38:34 <Kitt> my phone hasn't whistled yet
08:39:38 <Kevin L> It should soon.
08:39:46 <Kitt> there it is
08:40:49 <Casey> Thanks for the text
08:41:11 <Kitt> indy was waiting for me to leave
08:41:19 <Kitt> started right after I left
08:41:42 <Kevin L> A lot earlier than I thought it would be.
08:42:10 <Kitt> 14 hour
08:43:16 <Kevin L> Betty picked the wrong time to hit the pool.
08:45:18 <Jake> not exactly a summer-sized BHI crowd out there
08:45:36 <Dave from B> How many are at BH?
08:45:38 <Kitt> haven't you heard? It is Fall
08:46:06 <Casey> No concerns about the structural integrity or size of the boardwalk
08:46:08 <Dave from B> Thanks for the update, Kitt:)
08:46:36 <Dave from B> Also a long ways to BH with bw closed
08:46:44 <Kevin L> Not Fall until 2021
08:47:06 <Jake> so this is the last BH of the summer?
08:47:09 <Kitt> the boardwalk is closed?
08:47:27 <Jimbo Terbium> LC generating a lot of steam under these conditions
08:47:34 <Dave from B> The pathway from OF to bridge is still closed for Michelin work isn't it?
08:47:36 <Casey> Where is the bw closed? I heard some discussion about it, but never caught the details.
08:47:54 <Casey> LC ie
08:48:05 <Jake> the bridge is open I believe, the path from Sawmill to Castle is closed
08:48:33 <Jake> and OF bridge intersection to Chinese Spring is closed for the new rubber path
08:48:37 <Kitt> Have they started laying the path? Last year it didn't take them but a few days to get it done
08:49:02 <Kevin L> One customer
08:49:17 <Kitt> why is Sawmill to Castle closed?
08:49:47 <Kitt> they already did Castle to the bridge
08:50:34 <Jake> Will knows more I think. I could be wrong on what's closed out there
08:53:04 <Kitt> morning bee
08:53:09 <ynpvisitor31> up up and away
08:53:09 <Kitt> wakey wakey
08:53:13 <Kitt> Beehive
08:53:21 <Kitt> 1053 wc
08:53:27 <Jimbo Terbium> Straight up
08:54:28 <Jake> rainbow!
08:54:29 <Kitt> rainbow
08:54:41 <Kevin L> :)
08:54:44 <Kitt> that is a tall bee
08:55:03 <Jimbo Terbium> could be near maximum
08:55:08 <ynpvisitor69> Bee is less shy when there aren't so many watching....
08:55:15 <Jimbo Terbium> great colors
08:56:07 <ynpvisitor69> wow!
08:56:14 <Dave from B> nice
08:57:54 <Jimbo Terbium> Where
08:58:04 <Jimbo Terbium> is a theodolite when you need one
08:58:23 <Kevin L> That was totally awesome. One of the best I have seen.
08:58:58 <Jake> it was. might be the only sunlight all day too
08:59:01 <Kitt> Beautiful, just beautful
08:59:17 <Kitt> have a good day all
08:59:25 <Jake> Riverside ie
08:59:43 <Kevin L> Can't believe the sun peeked out just at the right time.
09:03:30 <Jake> Depression ie
09:03:35 <ynpvisitor69> best ever. except standing next to it!
09:09:49 <Dave from B> Dsisy ie
09:10:58 <Kevin L> Wasn't sure. Wind going the other way
09:11:51 <ynpvisitor31> OF 1111
09:12:05 <Kevin L> Fluffy one.
09:14:43 <Jake> I got artsy with the Beehive eruption:
09:16:01 <Dave from B> Nice Jake
09:22:58 <Jimbo Terbium> Nice art - could set that eruption to music, too
09:27:58 <Jake> if you use the 40x speed webcam capture, you can use Yakety Sax
09:36:48 <Jake> Lion trying
09:37:22 <Jake> Lion 1137
09:38:24 <Kevin L> Lion initials are so nice.
09:39:39 <Dave from B> One of my favorite geyser eruptions
09:42:15 <Dave from B> Jake, do you get a chance to do any hiking in Utah?
09:44:39 <Kevin L> You telling Jake to take a hike?
09:45:43 <Dave from B> hahahaha
09:47:56 <Kevin L> Grand ie
10:34:36 <ynpvisitor40> the people at Bee have a long wait
10:36:31 <ynpvisitor12> Kevin you forgot WC on your grand
10:37:41 <Kevin L> That may help. I am lucky to get the time on it today.
10:37:57 <Dave from B> It's funny how initials can me different things. WC can be webcam, water closet and will call
10:38:06 <Dave from B> mean*
10:39:10 <ynpvisitor40> military, will comply
10:39:30 <Kevin L> Looks like rain wil be picking up and there is supposed to be snow Saturday.
10:52:12 <Kevin L> Poof!
11:01:58 <Casey> Lion
11:04:31 <Kevin L> Pretty strong Lion
11:05:17 <Casey> It seemed like it. It was ie when I arrived, but I think it had just started.
11:05:56 <Kevin L> I got the start.
11:06:10 <Casey> good
11:06:59 <Kevin L> You saw it near the start.
11:07:39 <Casey> I caught bh earlier, but that's about it. Anything exciting/unusual today?
11:08:09 <Kevin L> Very nice BH but that is about it.
11:08:31 <Casey> LC ie
11:08:47 <Kevin L> Caught a Grand ie after the Lion ini but it was a 1b.
11:10:27 <Casey> Looks like we're running low on gazers in the basin.
11:36:33 <Casey> Daisy ie
11:36:44 <kc (working)> cam just went offline here
11:36:58 <Casey> I lost it too. Daisy was ie
11:41:29 <Kevin L> Think power is out at OF
11:42:59 <Kevin L> Nothing on controls either.
11:43:54 <kc (working)> static stuck at 1336 as well
11:45:48 <Kevin L> I have streaming now.
11:45:53 <Casey> Back live
11:45:54 <kc (working)> back here too
11:46:09 <Kevin L> Controls up too.
11:46:36 <Casey> Did anyone else see Daisy? With as much steam as there has been today I want to be cautious.
11:47:01 <Casey> Unless Daisy had some powerful preplay, it had to be ie.
11:47:03 <kc (working)> yes, i was refreshing to make sure i wasnt lagged when it went offline
11:51:29 <Dave from B> It seems like the sun went down at OF already
11:51:39 <Dave from B> awful dark for 1400
11:52:08 <Kevin L> I didn't see Daisy but this is the right time for it.
11:53:51 <Casey> Yeah. It was very early in the window. If nobody in the field posts it I'll post 1336 once the window closes. That will end any of my doubts.
11:54:20 <kc (working)> daisy was ie for sure
11:54:45 <Casey> Ok. I'll go ahead and post it then.
11:54:45 <kc (working)> i'll post it
11:54:51 <Casey> go for it
11:54:51 <kc (working)> nm go ahead
11:54:54 <kc (working)> g
11:55:01 <Dave from B> haha
11:55:05 <kc (working)> you do it, i'm technically working
11:55:07 <Casey> Rock, paper, scissors?
11:55:09 <Dave from B> kc is trying to pad his numbers
11:56:50 <Casey> Posted. If my experience is any indication, it will soon get relegated to "secondary" status.
11:57:40 <Kevin L> I was checking other sites. I wasn't sure if it was power out at OF or Arizona Pipline and CATV destroying service at my place.
12:08:01 <Kevin L> Won't see much watter on this one.
12:12:28 <Kevin L> Looks like Grotto.
12:30:34 <Dave from B> Welcome back, Jake. Thanks for getting power restired.
12:30:42 <Dave from B> restored*
12:30:49 <Dave from B> Stupid keyboard
12:31:19 <Jake> it's the least I can do
12:31:25 <Jake> no, really, I did nothing
13:22:06 <ynpvisitor62> Grand?
13:22:23 <Casey> Must be oblong
13:22:51 <ynpvisitor62> I should have checked GT for interval
13:23:35 <Kevin L> 3h Grand intervals are rare.
13:27:30 <ynpvisitor62> Thanks kevin :)
13:44:48 <Betty> Hi again
13:45:06 <Kevin L> You sure left at the wrong time!
13:45:29 <Kevin L> When do you head home?
13:45:42 <Betty> What happened?
13:45:59 <Kevin L> Beautiful BH with a rainbow.
13:47:04 <Kevin L> Jake did an artsy rendering of it:
13:47:11 <Betty> Bah
13:47:36 <Betty> 1 hour to boarding
13:48:34 <Kevin L> What airline?
13:48:46 <Jake> Depression ie
13:49:23 <Dave from B> I was reading that as Depression Airlines...not a good name
13:49:56 <Jake> it's a budget operation
13:50:30 <Kevin L> I think I have flown on it
13:50:37 <Betty> Haha, Dave. I would not take this one. Ours is Condor
13:50:54 <Dave from B> That's just as bad...they're extinct
13:51:07 <Dave from B> Almost anyway
13:51:08 <Jake> OF
13:51:11 <Jake> ns
13:51:22 <Dave from B> splat
13:51:57 <Kevin L> Dave got the lens slimed.
13:52:30 <Kevin L> I will have to see if I can find it on the vitrual radat. What is departure time?
13:53:37 <Kevin L> I bet it is the 1630 to Frankfurt.
13:55:47 <ynpvisitor56> Yep
13:56:40 <ynpvisitor56> Bah. McCarran wifi threw me out
13:56:47 <Kevin L> No Condors on the radar right now.
13:57:19 <Kevin L> A couple of years ago I could have handled that complaint.
13:57:22 <Dave from B> Betty, when do you return next year?
13:58:02 <Casey> Hi Betty! Safe travels.
13:58:46 <Betty> Sure for solar eclipse. I did a reservation from thursday before to tuesday after
13:59:15 <Kevin L> Hey, I have mine the week before!!
13:59:24 <Dave from B> We may see you at that time. We are going to go there for eclipse before taking Becca to school
13:59:28 <Betty> Hi casey. Thanks:-)
14:00:07 <Betty> Great! Would love to see you again
14:00:43 <Dave from B> Kevin, may see you as well.
14:02:19 <Betty> So we will finally meet, Kevin?
14:02:30 <Kevin L> I hope so!
14:05:10 <Betty> That would be sooooo great, Kevin :-D
14:06:19 <Betty> Ok, boarding begins. Will be back over the pond
14:06:54 <Kevin L> Have a good trip
14:07:51 <Casey> Daisy
14:09:12 <Casey> Last 4 intervals (and last 6 closed intervals) are all between between 2h27m and 2h33m.
14:09:31 <Casey> Between between is even better than regular between
14:15:05 <Dave from B> haha..Casey Casey
14:24:42 <Dave from B> Time for me to go home. Have a great evening everyone!
14:25:13 <Kevin L> bye
14:47:14 <Kevin L> No power again
14:47:35 <Kevin L> Dave turned it off when he left.
14:53:11 <Kevin L> Back on
15:00:48 <Kevin L> Aurum?
15:38:11 <Kevin L> Betty's airplane just left the gate.
16:13:58 <Kevin L> Have your NoDoz kc?
16:16:16 <kcmule> luckily theres a game on soon
16:17:12 <kcmule> two if u count/care about usa hockey world cup
16:17:49 <Kevin L> Only hockey team I have seen score in the negative numbers.
16:19:52 <kcmule> silly to also have a 'north america' team with a bunch of usa guys. just hope they dont all get injured before nhl starts
16:21:26 <Kevin L> There must be a military exercise at Nellis AFB today. I have had Canadian, Austrailian, British, and French Air Force planes along with US. Even have a Navy plane on it now.
17:10:22 <kcmule> OF
17:11:46 <Kevin L> Who closed the curtains?
17:14:16 <kcmule> daisy
17:14:46 <Kevin L> Bet we have some fog tomorrow.
17:15:39 <Michael> I'm still accustomed to mid-summer steam, so it just looks like everything is erupting to me.
17:19:06 <Kevin L> Well in just over an hour Summer will be over.
17:20:14 <Michael> Good point.
17:22:19 <Michael> Seems like a lot of steam over Grand, but not enough.
17:22:57 <Kevin L> It will have a bunch when it goes.
17:38:30 <ynpvisitor88> grand i think
17:39:51 <Michael> Something big for sure.
17:41:57 <ynpvisitor88> gt is defective, but what does some yahoo know?
17:44:34 <Michael> Was it something I said?
17:45:47 <Kevin L> I don't know
