05:20:22 <Rich> morning evetyone
05:25:16 <Dave from B> Morning Rich
05:25:45 <Rich> hi dave from b
05:33:58 <Dave from B> Rich, it's been awhile. How are you doing?
05:35:24 <Rich> good, we got our first rain for the season, just over half an inch in about an hour
05:36:57 <Dave from B> Sounds like us. It has rained for 36 hours straight. Roof's leaking in 3 spots. Puddles everywhere.
05:43:08 <Rich> i have similar roof.
05:43:35 <Rich> buckets all over
05:45:56 <Rich> any wildlife seen latelg?
05:46:46 <Dave from B> Seems like we're seeing bison almost everyday...not much else
05:46:50 <Dave from B> No bears
05:49:13 <Rich> thanks, might getvto see some g
05:49:20 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
05:49:40 <Rich> hi Kevin
05:52:36 <Kevin L> Morning all.
05:52:59 <Kevin L> Hope you have a warranty on that roof Dave.
05:53:44 <Dave from B> It's one of the pitfalls with a metal roof. Wind loosens screws on roof over time and with steady or heavy rains you will get leaks
05:54:53 <Dave from B> Caulking doesn't even really help
05:55:53 <Kevin L> :p
05:59:07 <Kevin L> Have you guys tried this?:
06:00:46 <Dave from B> No, we haven't. Part of the problem is we have no equipment to get to the top of the roof. Over 20' off the ground.
06:01:31 <Kevin L> We used a similar product on the highways here. It will stretch a bit and stay pliable in hot and cold. Also comes in a caulking gun tube.
06:02:08 <Kevin L> Ugh. That makes it harder.
06:03:13 <Kevin L> One of the reasons I bought a one story house.
06:06:36 <Dave from B> My contractor has been nice enough to go up and tighten screws once in awhile.
06:07:14 <Kevin L> Maybe some fish would help?
06:07:38 <Jimbo Nickel> Nickel is the second most abundant element in metallic meteorites, after iron
06:07:43 <Kevin L> You could see if he would do it just for the halibut.
06:08:33 <Jimbo Nickel> This is no time for fish puns, so get off your perch
06:09:00 <Kevin L> My are you crabby this morning!
06:09:03 <Dave from B> hahaha
06:09:40 <Kevin L> Speaking of rain, did you see that hurricane down by Cuba? :p
06:10:23 <Jimbo Nickel> Yes, gigantic rainfall totals. Not good for Haiti
06:11:31 <Kevin L> Haiti sure gets slammed a lot. Not only by weather, but by earthquakes.
06:12:19 <Jimbo Nickel> They don't need disasters to make things worse, but they get them anyway
06:14:42 <Kevin L> Doesn't take a lot to destroy the houses they live in. I think they said the wind on this one was steady at 140. I think that would cause serious damage to my place!
06:16:05 <Kevin L> Morning Jenna.
06:17:13 <Jenna> morning Kevin
06:17:52 <Kevin L> Just checked and the wind speed on the hurricane is 145! Not good. Hurricane is scheduled to arrive in North Carolina just in time for the Nascar races. Never fails.
06:19:16 <Jimbo Nickel> & baseball playoffs
06:19:39 <ynpvisitor99> I was just going to ask what that steamcloud was
06:21:09 <ynpvisitor99> Oblong maybe?
06:21:24 <Dave from B> snowflakes?
06:21:42 <ynpvisitor99> yes there is white stuff in the basin
06:21:48 <Kevin L> They aren't dandruff!
06:24:19 <ynpvisitor99> and it is done, whatever it was
06:24:38 <ynpvisitor99> looks like some people aren't dressed for Wyoming in the fall
06:24:53 <ynpvisitor15> it was oblong
06:25:20 <ynpvisitor99> Daisy
06:54:51 <Dave from B> That's a big puddle
07:31:53 <Dave from B> Good morning Jake
07:32:26 <Jake> good morning
07:39:25 <ynpvisitor3> thanks for the work on GT Jake - you guys have been busy behind the scenes
08:07:13 <Jake> you're welcome
08:07:33 <Jake> there's so much on the to-do list that I feel like we haven't done much of anything sometimes
08:09:25 <Kevin L> Sounds like me and my house.
08:10:58 <Jake> luckily, GT is a chicken-free safe space
08:11:02 <ynpvisitor3> how many features have initial calculations - or is it any geyser where that is entered?
08:12:31 <Jake> I think it's just Lion for now
08:13:04 <ynpvisitor3> that's the one I looked at :)
08:14:14 <ynpvisitor3> I was going to look at Dome another time, maybe Churn. I realize it's all about who enters the first one seen and whatthey know
08:16:09 <Jake> the interval stats become seriously useless with missing data points, moreso with ini-to-ini stats
08:16:46 <Jake> Lion is probably borderline useful since most of those are known
08:17:26 <Jake> I personally look at end-of-series to initial times when trying to guess the next initial
08:21:52 <Dave from B> Jake, you should try my formula....3xy+2y-5*3.142857
08:22:40 <Dave from B> Where x is the number of gazers waiting for Lion and y is how hungry you are
08:22:47 <Kevin L> You making pi now Dave?
08:23:19 <Dave from B> yep:D
08:25:50 <Jake> Dave's Pi is slightly larger than others'
08:26:34 <Casey> Does anybody every really complain about extra Pi?
08:26:45 <Casey> OF
08:26:54 <Jake> Sumerians
08:27:25 <Kevin L> I always used 3.14159.
08:28:33 <Kevin L> I was always amused that they would have us calculate grade to 1000th of a foot. Like a guy in a road grader is going to do that in the dirt?
08:30:02 <Dave from B> I guess my pi guess wasn't close enough?
08:30:49 <Kevin L> If you are playing horseshoes it is.
08:31:24 <Kevin L>
08:31:38 <Kevin L> Just so yu know Dave.
08:32:12 <Dave from B> Do I need to memorize that?
08:32:26 <Kevin L> By tonight!
08:34:54 <Dave from B> Still hard to believe pi doesn't repeat....any other number like that in the world?
08:38:39 <ynpvisitor4> e???
08:40:04 <Kevin L> Pi is a ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter.
08:42:27 <Kevin L> I know a raspberry pi can be made to track airplanes.
08:46:00 <Kevin L> Lion
08:46:04 <Casey> Nice
08:47:16 <Eric> <== Likes Pi and Lion :-D
08:47:27 <Kevin L> Hi Eric.
08:47:32 <Eric> Hi Kevin
08:48:48 <Kevin L> BTW Eric, I noticed that when you click on a link in the chat it opens in the window chat was using instead of a new window.
08:49:21 <Casey> I've noticed that as well
08:50:04 <Kevin L> Not a very tall Lion for an initial.
08:58:44 <Jake> I'm off to go to a conference in Las Vegas, see y'all later
09:00:38 <Dave from B> Have fun Jake!
09:02:11 <Eric> cya jake
09:02:22 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:02:47 <Kevin L> Nice weather for it Jake.
09:04:10 <Eric>
09:05:07 <Eric>
09:08:59 <Kevin L> Looks like Turban
09:09:20 <ynpvisitor3> right click is just as easy- but I did notice it too
09:10:33 <Eric> unless you don't have right mouse button ;-)
09:11:33 <ynpvisitor3> true dat
09:17:38 <Eric> all better now
09:18:23 <Eric>
09:19:35 <Kevin L> Don't know what we would do without you Eric!
09:20:24 <Dave from B> Yes, thank you!
09:24:39 <Casey> Thanks Eric.
09:27:02 <Kevin L> Daisy
09:43:37 <ynpvisitor5> Looks Grand
09:44:25 <Dave from B> yep
09:44:40 <Kevin L> Got a few minutes before OF window.
09:44:43 <ynpvisitor5> Thought it would have been bigger with the temp
09:45:51 <ynpvisitor5> You are going to miss Aurum!
09:46:01 <Kevin L> Probably so!
09:48:25 <ynpvisitor5> That would be ie by the way, not quite ns as I was coming back from looking at something else.
09:49:19 <ynpvisitor5> Is that artifact, or snow flakes I see?
09:49:39 <Kevin L> Big dandruff!
09:51:57 <Kevin L> 2nd
09:51:58 <ynpvisitor5> Now it is big
09:53:15 <ynpvisitor5> Good thing about seeing Gand on a day like today, your feet get warm as the water runs under the boardwalk.
09:53:52 <ynpvisitor5> See Aurum is hiding behind OF steam anyway.
09:54:03 <Kevin L> Sort of like the Plume heater for BH.
09:54:04 <ynpvisitor5> Enjoy, try and be back for bee.
09:57:47 <Kevin L> Castle ie
10:04:58 <Kevin L> Nice OF start.
10:06:15 <Kevin L> A triple!
10:17:21 <Kevin L> I think we can call this a major.
10:29:44 <ynpvisitor31> looking gloomy again
11:08:14 <Kevin L> Lion
11:20:10 <Dave from B> It is going to be flipping cold at Becca's game tonight. It is only 39F right now and wind is strong
11:20:41 <Dave from B> Good thing they are playing on the turf tonight or game would have been cancelled already for wet field conditions
11:21:07 <Kevin L> Pretty cold here took. 75 right now.
11:23:34 <Dave from B> This game will be at least 25-30 degrees cooler than Becca's coldest game this year
11:24:44 <kc (working)> 'when it's too cold for them it's just right for us' said a great man
11:27:23 <Dave from B> Yes, too cold for them means I'm inside!
11:28:55 <Dave from B> It's a shame. This is the biggest game of the year top date. Becca's tema needs to win to have a chance at 2 or 3 seed in the east. lose and they get #4 whixh means they could face Helena in first round at state which has a unbeaten streak of over 40 games.
11:29:29 <Dave from B> We were last team to beat Helena and that was 2 years ago at State tournament
11:31:32 <Kevin L> Is it still raining?
11:32:04 <Casey> OF
11:33:07 <Dave from B> Yep
11:33:21 <Dave from B> Girls game starts at 5...boys at 7...may be snowing for boys game
11:33:44 <ynpvisitor31> will they play no matter what the weather?
11:33:53 <Kevin L> Watch it from the car?
11:34:02 <ynpvisitor31> what will you do when you have no more soccer games to attend?
11:35:49 <Kevin L> He I was sniveling because it is supposed to get almost to 90 this weekend!
11:36:34 <Dave from B> 31, I will be happy when sports are over. This is year 17 or 18 and I'm ready to be done.
11:36:57 <Dave from B> We are playing in the high sdchool football hiding in your car
11:37:08 <Kevin L> They can get to the point they do run your life.
11:38:21 <Dave from B> I don't think game would be cancelled but it can happen. Taylor played in 28F with 3" of snow shoveled off the field in Idaho Falls once
11:38:49 <Dave from B> Spring and Fall travel will soon begin for Michelle and I....lots of places on the list
11:40:21 <Kevin L> Get that Silverton Train ride?
11:41:44 <Kevin L> Looks like your snow reached the park Dave.
11:41:52 <Dave from B> Yes, plus Utah parks, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Great Smokies...
11:44:14 <Betty> hi guys
11:44:58 <Dave from B> Here's my travel expert right now...Hi, Betty
11:45:31 <Betty> hmm? Hi Dave ......
11:46:04 <Dave from B> You've been everywhere I want to go!:)
11:46:07 <Kevin L> Hi Betty
11:46:15 <Betty> ask me I know all of your country :-)
11:46:25 <Betty> hi Kevin
11:46:31 <Kevin L> Have you been to Hanau Dave?
11:47:00 <Betty> I have not been to Hanau yet, Kevin
11:47:55 <Dave from B> Nope....Europe will happen when I can get 2-3 weeks off work which means in a few years when Taylor can handle things
11:48:46 <Kevin L> Nasty snow!
11:49:53 <Kevin L> It was fun living in Hanau. Gave you time to really see some of the places. Very interesting area.
11:50:19 <Kevin L> I would love to spend more time in Bertchesgaden.
11:50:23 <Betty> not talking bad of Hanau???
11:50:41 <Kevin L> Only the weather Betty!
11:50:59 <Betty> Hanau is far away from Berchtesgaden
11:52:01 <Kevin L> That I know. Drove down there several times. It would be fun to see Hanau again and also Bertchesgaden.
11:52:44 <Betty> this weather makes me think of preparing for ski trips....
11:53:27 <Kevin L> When you are out for 4 hours at night walking a 40 foot high berm guarding an ammo dump, the bad weather gets compounded.
11:53:42 <Jimbo Nickel> I think I'm going to call it a day.
11:53:46 <Jimbo Nickel> bbl
11:53:55 <Betty> later Jimbo
11:53:59 <Kevin L> Come back when you are a dime!
11:57:11 <Kevin L> I used to love to walk around Wilhelmsbad Betty. That was a fun place.
11:58:33 <Betty> that was our view :-(
11:59:12 <Kevin L> I remember once the pool froze there. It was a crack up watching the ducks land on it.
12:00:33 <Kevin L> That carousel is awesome.
12:04:01 <Kevin L> Hope this falls off before BH erupts.
12:07:36 <ynpvisitor4> oh no
12:07:43 <ynpvisitor4> oi
12:07:47 <ynpvisitor4> what happened
12:08:00 <Dave from B> snow happened
12:11:12 <Kevin L> Getting Dave ready for Becca's soccer game.
12:12:09 <Betty> BH cone is in view
12:12:44 <Betty> no Indy as I can see
12:13:24 <Casey> Haha Betty. Is LC erupting?
12:13:52 <Betty> nope :-)
12:14:30 <Betty> LC is visible too
12:14:59 <Kevin L> It is starting to come off
12:16:42 <Dave from B> BEAR!
12:16:54 <Dave from B> :D
12:17:25 <Casey> Walking upright on the boardwalk?
12:17:42 <Dave from B> Maybe just someone in a heavy coat:)
12:28:12 <Betty> bah
12:50:20 <ynpvisitor94> they are watching the ice melt on the cam
13:03:25 <ynpvisitor85> racing rain drop, which will drop off first? g
13:11:38 <Kevin L> I think I am about to drop off.
13:11:57 <ynpvisitor85> zzzzzzzz?
13:12:17 <Kevin L> Looking for NoDoz.
13:12:49 <Betty> OF
13:19:28 <Dave from B> View is imroving
13:19:39 <Kevin L> Shake the tree Dave.
13:20:38 <Dave from B> I have nightmares of Giantess erupting when snow covers cam
13:24:12 <Kevin L> While you are at the dentist....
13:25:12 <Dave from B> that too
13:27:13 <Dave from B> Wow...we received 1.86" of rain yesterday
13:32:02 <Kevin L> DDaisy?
13:32:14 <Betty> nno
13:32:41 <Betty> SSawmill
13:35:07 <ynpvisitor89> I knew geysers sputter. But nowthey stutter too ?
13:36:23 <ynpvisitor20> Right now, I miss the wiper!
13:37:13 <Kevin L> Heat is getting to me here.
13:39:15 <Kevin L> This keyboard is due for a tannerite fix. It will miss a letter and with the same pressure it will do a double. I think it throws in a random letter just for the heck of it.
13:40:00 <ynpvisitor20> Still under warranty?
13:44:44 <Kevin L> I think it is just the way it was made. Cost them at least 99 cents.
13:46:42 <ynpvisitor89> 99 cents bought a lot in 1874
13:47:42 <ynpvisitor20> Kevin was around, no computer key boards though.
13:47:48 <Kevin L> I know. I have an old Sears Catalog reprint. It was amazing.
13:48:27 <Kevin L> You could get a train ticket from Omaha to Cheyenne....
13:51:16 <Betty> I can do the same like yesterday: time to head out, hope you get BH soon. Night all
13:51:23 <Kevin L> What we need is a vibrate switch for the cam to shake the water off.
13:51:36 <Kevin L> TY Betty.
13:51:53 <ynpvisitor20> me too
13:52:24 <ynpvisitor89> Or a bull elk to rub his antlers on the tree.
13:52:40 <Kevin L> That would be more fun!
14:23:50 <Kevin L> Here it comes again.
14:25:24 <ynpvisitor61> what a view
14:25:43 <ynpvisitor61> kinda looks like indy
14:26:07 <Kevin L> We may never know
14:26:23 <Andy> is there a driver?
14:26:44 <Andy> itb be nice to just shift a little lft
14:26:53 <Kevin L> Driver isn't going to do any good right now.
14:31:19 <Dave from B> wow...a balmy 44F. Time to go to the game. Goodnight everyone!
14:31:37 <Kevin L> Good luck Dave.
14:31:41 <Andy> night
14:33:11 <ynpvisitor89> Some of that rain looks flaky.
15:00:41 <Kevin L> Well we can almost see to OF now.
15:06:26 <Kevin L> Hope it isn't like this at Dave's game.
15:57:22 <Kevin L> It's back!
15:57:37 <Kevin L> Gee I love living in the desert!
15:57:51 <Andy> Or california...
16:22:10 <ynpvisitor57> Yay. BH cone is visible now. Hopefully we didn't miss an eruption.
16:57:33 <ynpvisitor16> Gee I am glad it isn't snowing in Worland
17:38:04 <Kevin L> I am going to assume that BH went during all that white crap.
17:49:51 <ynpvisitor12> OF
17:50:19 <ynpvisitor61> Kevin brook the hill. No grand or bh today.
17:50:40 <Kevin L> There was a Grand
17:50:55 <Kevin L> 2b @ 1143 ie
18:08:43 <Kevin L> Lot of lights by Castle.
18:09:09 <ynpvisitor12> looks like there was fresh snowfall around BHs cone when the cam was zoomed in earlier. *sigh*
19:51:21 <ynpvisitor62> Cool! BH 21:15 per GT
