05:03:15 <ynpvisitor77> OF 0659 probably a long but hard to tell.
06:50:33 <Jimbo Fluorine> Top of the halogens
06:51:49 <ynpvisitor31> Good morning, Cam Op! What did you think - was that last OF long or short?
06:56:51 <Casey> Good morning
06:58:23 <Dave from B> Good morning everyone
07:03:25 <Dave from B> How was Rainbow Canyon, Kevin?
07:05:22 <Kevin L™> Very nice. Didn't even need a jacket most of the time even in the canyon.
07:07:21 <Dave from B> Finally, a break in the weather for MT. 10 days above freezing starting today
07:10:15 <Kevin L™> Sounds good. I have peach blooms already.
08:18:53 <Jake> OF ie
08:19:28 <Kevin L™> Hi Jake
08:22:11 <Jake> good morning
08:28:07 <Eric> Morning
08:28:21 <Kevin L™> Hi
08:33:35 <Betty> morning all
08:33:47 <Kevin L™> Hi
08:33:52 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:34:05 <Betty> hey Kevin and Eric
08:41:48 <ynpvisitor40> Hi, does someon note when the last eruption of OF begun and when it finished ?
08:41:51 <ynpvisitor40> *someone
08:42:56 <Jake> see
08:43:05 <Kevin L™>
08:43:09 <Jake> link:
08:44:33 <ynpvisitor40> Yes, thank you, but I know this site (whom is formidable) but there isn't the duration or the finished time of eruptions
08:45:05 <Jake> only if someone records it
08:45:43 <Jake> most observations of eruptions in the winter are done via this webcam and exact duration of an eruption can be difficult to determine because of poor visibility
08:46:27 <ynpvisitor40> Yes, it's true. I only ask "in case of" someone recorded it
08:46:42 <Jake> the rangers at Old Faithful collect more detailed duration information but that isn't put into GeyserTimes in real-time
08:47:50 <Jake> the last eruption of Old Faithful at 1017 was marked as a "long" duration which is enough to make a prediction for the next eruption
08:49:00 <ynpvisitor66> click on the geyser name and you will see that some durations are recorded
08:50:45 <ynpvisitor40> Yes and this datas are very useful ! But there I only wanted to make a graph with the duration and the time to the next eruption and I try to collect some datas ;)
08:51:38 <ynpvisitor40> Thanks you anyway for the precisions
08:51:46 <ynpvisitor40> *thank
08:54:12 <Kevin L™> This is another page you may find of use #40:
09:01:23 <ynpvisitor40> Thanks, it's also an intersting website !
09:01:30 <ynpvisitor40> *interesting
09:05:11 <ynpvisitor68> this rain will create an ice layer. It will be tougher for the bison to find food when it cools down again
09:33:14 <ynpvisitor66> .
09:35:00 <Betty> Aurum?
09:35:07 <Eric> ywp
09:35:10 <Eric> yep
09:35:21 <Betty> saw it late
09:35:22 <Kevin L™> Good catch
09:35:24 <Eric> Nice catch
09:36:46 <Jake> I missed it. What happened to your YouTube replay channel, Eric?
09:36:47 <Kevin L™> I have been paying attention more toward the Grand area.
09:37:27 <Eric> Could never get YouTube and the RTMP stream to be happy with each other :-(
09:38:09 <Eric> Too broken to be a good solution.
09:40:22 <Jake> start your own "instant replay" webcam site that works with RTMP!
09:40:53 <Eric> got a few million for me to get going with?
09:41:03 <Eric> Video is expensive man...
09:41:07 <Jake> there's probably dozens of webcam streams as a market! dozens!
09:41:20 <Eric> Nope
09:44:15 <Jake> I seemed to have misplaced my few million but you get started on it and I'll put a check in the mail
09:45:06 <Eric> I will give you some advice...never do pro-bono work with the goal of getting paid :-P
09:45:22 <Jake> I thought it worked well when I used it then it got hit with the takedown notice
09:45:56 <Eric> Yes, but even before the takedown...which got reversed, the feed was too flakey
09:46:35 <Eric> Might have been on my servers end....the machine I was tunneling stuff through is not very powerful.
09:47:27 <Eric> I would rather spend my time working on the interface here anyway
09:47:53 <Eric> widgets I tell ya...they are the thing of the future :-P
09:52:15 <Jake> I read your comments yesterday on a new chat. Are you designing from scratch?
09:53:55 <Eric> Well, nothing is from scratch these days :-) Going to base it on Bootstrap and use a Grid Layout called gridstack.js
09:54:18 <Eric>
09:54:47 <Eric> serialize the widgets size and placement so people can choose their own layouts, freeform.
09:55:22 <Eric> Would love to include a GT widget or two in it
09:56:37 <ynpvisitor40> preplays..
09:57:14 <Jake> yes! the intention was the GT home page things are widget-able so they should be close to fitting that purpose
09:57:27 <Eric> awesome
09:58:19 <Jake> OF
09:58:29 <Eric> We can talk more about it after I get the chat, video, static cams, time/temp, history all in place in a new layout.
09:58:36 <Eric> OF
09:58:59 <Jake> using the same chat app or something new?
09:59:06 <Kevin L™> Back to white on white.
09:59:32 <Eric> Same one for now..
09:59:55 <Eric> Not sure about how it will do dynamically resizing though :-P
10:12:21 <ynpvisitor4> what did you all do with Grand?
10:12:52 <Kevin L™> Graham broke it.
10:12:53 <Betty> we sent it to Florida
10:13:00 <ynpvisitor4> ah
10:13:39 <Jake> I'm still open to a new chat on the GT domain that could tie into usernames and allow logging entries from a chat window...when you get there
10:14:29 <Eric> cool...that would be a nice connection
10:19:19 <ynpvisitor40> I saw you have replied to my answer about Specimen Ridge Fossil Trunks Trail, so it is indicate on the road if I understood ?
10:22:05 <Jake> yes, it's right here:,-110.3284056,164m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x534e48bb4206d1a3:0xfc20369cbc9c786f!8m2!3d44.8685205!4d-110.1746432
10:22:24 <Jake> the Tower Ranger Station has a map if you go in and talk to the rangers
10:22:25 <ynpvisitor66> there is parking there for several cars with a sign that says "trailhead"
10:24:33 <ynpvisitor40> Thanks a lot, I've studied this area a lot of times and I never identify something for be certain of the location of the trailhead.. Now I'm ready to go in YNP ! :D
10:24:50 <Dave from B> That's a nice hike unless you get to do it in a thunderstorm like I did
10:25:15 <Betty> carry bear spray
10:25:32 <ynpvisitor40> Yes, I will of course
10:25:33 <Dave from B> I spent a half hour hiding in the tree with a couple dozen people waiting for the lightning to go past
10:25:51 <Eric> You needed lightning spray dave
10:26:00 <Betty> haha
10:26:03 <Jake> lol
10:26:18 <ynpvisitor40> I want to see a grizzly but not beeing killed by x)
10:26:26 <Jake> there's idea for my millions to fund your cam startup ;)
10:27:18 <Kevin L™> Dave would make a good grounding rod
10:28:15 <Jake> is it a repellent or do you spray it at the incoming lightning?
10:28:46 <Jake> I've been up to those trees with a large group that scared a grizzly near the trees
10:29:37 <ynpvisitor66> you aren't supposed to go IN the petrified tree Dave from B
10:29:54 <ynpvisitor66> if word gets out they'llput an iron fence around it
10:34:02 <ynpvisitor40> Anyway, the interest of being killed by a grizzly is low for a french, french tourists die every year for failure to respect safety and french newspapers dont care ^^
10:46:28 <ynpvisitor66> it would make US news- so be careful :)
10:48:38 <Eric> Dave...the next time you are out hiking be sure to take a portable lightning rod:
10:49:01 <Eric> Doubles as an umbrella
10:49:32 <Kevin L™> I could have used that by Artemesia once.
10:55:00 <Kevin L™> Lion
11:11:22 <Eric> future air traffic controller
11:15:44 <ynpvisitor33> 1-90 is CLOSED near Lookout Pass
11:18:25 <ynpvisitor28> The NPS webcam seems to be late compared to this
11:18:36 <ynpvisitor66> Teton County in Jackson is declared state of emergency too
11:19:32 <Dave from B> Sorry I had to step away. I am laughing at the recent much is the spray?:)
11:19:50 <Dave from B> posts*
11:21:46 <Eric> why is there a state of emergency in teton county?
11:21:59 <Eric> Too much winter?
11:22:15 <Dave from B> No power in many places...17 downed power lines
11:22:31 <Dave from B> Jackson Ski Area closed for 4-7 days
11:22:43 <Eric> NO not the ski area....emergency!
11:22:50 <Dave from B> They were major transmission lines
11:23:00 <ynpvisitor28> Oh, I reconize "Teton", it's a french word :)
11:23:13 <ynpvisitor28> *recognize
11:23:14 <Jimbo Fluorine> I did the petrified forest hike and was beset with mosquitoes
11:23:18 <Eric> We use a lot of french words :-D
11:24:02 <ynpvisitor28> Yes, but I think in this case the etymology isn't very interesting ^^
11:24:11 <ynpvisitor33> if you are on FB, you can go to Explore Big Sky's page and they have a post with the downed power poles. Now with the rain, it may complicate things more
11:24:26 <Dave from B> Eric, French Toast is NOT a french word:D
11:25:11 <Kevin L™> I always wondered what the French though about that name for a National Park.
11:25:14 <ynpvisitor28> I didn't understand x)
11:25:59 <Kevin L™> Grand Teton National Park.
11:26:09 <ynpvisitor28> For the french words in NP, I think it come from the colonization of US
11:26:21 <Dave from B> I imagine name came from some exhaustyed mountain men when they were staring at the mountain range
11:26:36 <Jimbo Fluorine> There's a quote something to the effect that whoever named the Tetons must have been out in the wilderness a LONG time
11:26:54 <Dave from B> Exactly, Jimbo
11:27:15 <ynpvisitor28> Yes, I think you all know the meaning of this
11:28:44 <ynpvisitor28> I've also seen a french blog where the person said it's funny to see american women with a "Grand Teton" t-shirt
11:33:27 <ynpvisitor28> I want to ask you if, honestly, does my english be comprehensible ? For understand what I must work ^^
11:34:18 <ynpvisitor28> Wow I realize that my last sentence is very complicated
11:34:25 <Kevin L™> It is fine. This is a good way to practice it.
11:34:41 <Kevin L™> OF
11:34:45 <ynpvisitor28> Yes, thanks
11:35:32 <Kevin L™> If you notice, we will mess it up ourselves!
11:36:18 <Betty> they do the same to me, 28.
11:38:32 <Dave from B> Not me, I'm perfect:D
11:38:34 <ynpvisitor28> I'm not sure to understand the complete meaning of you last phrase Kevin L, and yes, but I think you're better than me Betty ;)
11:38:53 <Kevin L™> We will make errors too.
11:38:54 <Betty> Appolinaris Spring is named after a German Spring
11:38:54 <ynpvisitor28> Oh I just understand meaning in fact
11:39:38 <Dave from B> 28, do you live in France?
11:39:42 <ynpvisitor28> Yes, it's sure, I sometime do it in french too !
11:39:45 <ynpvisitor28> Yes
11:39:54 <ynpvisitor28> Near Bordeaux and Toulouse if you know
11:40:00 <ynpvisitor28> Between both
11:40:22 <Betty> sure you are perfect, Dave. You sell keyboards. Or was it something else? ;-)
11:40:46 <Dave from B> Yes, it is my keyboard that is the problem!
11:41:13 <Kevin L™> It has a loose nut behind it.
11:41:16 <Dave from B> I love seeing the French countryside during the Tour d France
11:41:58 <Dave from B> 28, I nhave been between Brussels and Paris and Paris to Luxembourg but not to your region
11:42:56 <Kevin L™> We told you Dave talks funny.
11:43:40 <ynpvisitor28> Yes, it's a quite nice country, like most countries in fact. And even for french, Tour de France's landscape are beautiful and it is past near my home many times !
11:45:14 <ynpvisitor28> *for it is past, I would say it happened, or they passed ;)
11:46:24 <Kevin L™> Over 10h for Grand now.
11:46:29 <ynpvisitor28> Betty, for Apollinaris I go to the Wikipedia's page "Apollinaris is a German naturally sparkling mineral water, owned by Coca-Cola.", it let me smile but I've learn something, I didn't know this spring
11:48:40 <Betty> sure Grand wasn´t missed, Kevin? How was visibility?
11:49:44 <Kevin L™> I wasn't on till 1000 but it hasn't been bad.
11:49:57 <Betty> ok
11:50:18 <Jake> I first started watching when Grand was at 6h40m and I thought maybe Grand was going. Have you been seeing Turbans?
11:50:39 <Betty> think vw had the cam earlier? she sure would have seen it
11:52:08 <Betty> 10hrs is no time for Grand preparing for a Dave-visit, but unusual nowadays :-D
11:52:35 <Betty> no Daisy either
11:52:38 <Dave from B> Hey! I heard that!:D
11:52:47 <Betty> shhhhh
11:53:12 <Betty> how was Beccas game? Forgot to ask about it
11:53:40 <Dave from B> They destroyed the other team..led 37-12 at one point
11:54:03 <Betty> wow, cool :-) congrats
11:54:41 <Betty> is she home? not to Portland yet?
11:54:53 <Dave from B> Becca got to play more than usual but she misses playing when the game really matters...she can't wait for club soccer to start in a month where she can make a difference.
11:55:07 <Dave from B> End of August for Portland
11:55:25 <Betty> oh, a bit of time until then
12:02:31 <ynpvisitor2> still no Grand?
12:02:53 <Kevin L™> Not unless we missed it.
12:05:08 <ynpvisitor83> 37 to 12, sounds like the super bowl. Did they win in the end?
12:05:50 <Dave from B> Yes, they wond something like 49-23
12:05:53 <Dave from B> won*
12:10:37 <ynpvisitor2> Lion
12:10:45 <Betty> Lion
12:11:14 <ynpvisitor83> Dang, thought it was bh for a minute
12:11:52 <Dave from B> 28, have you ever been to Yellowstone?
12:12:07 <Dave from B> oops..guess he/she left
12:12:55 <Betty> I asked that yesterday, and he/she said not
12:14:42 <Dave from B> Betty, do you ever do any traveling in Europe besides skiing?
12:15:07 <Betty> yes, sometimes
12:16:26 <Dave from B> Is a Eurrail Pass less enpensive for someone who lives in Europe than for "outsiders"?
12:17:01 <Betty> ugh, don´t know...
12:17:31 <ynpvisitor83> Kevin kniws everything about trains
12:17:52 <Betty> I commute to work with rail, but don´t go besides that with trains
12:21:17 <Kevin L™> When I was over there we did ride the trains, but I think they had a special price for the Military.
12:27:34 <Kevin L™> A 10 day pass is $800 now.
12:27:45 <ynpvisitor83> Back when they used steam?
12:28:08 <Betty> it was towed by horses
12:28:10 <Dave from B> wow..
12:29:16 <Dave from B> :D
12:30:00 <Kevin L™> They did use steam when I was there.
12:30:26 <ynpvisitor83> I thought it was supposed to be a deal. What pass is that? I tried to look but they do not like my computer and got a blank page. I saw 4 passes listed on google
12:30:32 <Kevin L™>
12:31:07 <Kevin L™>
12:32:24 <ynpvisitor83> I think that is the full meal deal. They have a 4 country pass, and a single country pass, and some other
12:32:37 <Dave from B> It is on the retirement bucket list
12:33:06 <ynpvisitor83> Retire, I thought you like fish
12:33:34 <Kevin L™> That is what the bucket is for.
12:34:12 <ynpvisitor83> We can not retire, will have to be 80 to get SS
12:41:33 <ynpvisitor2> have you checked to see if Grand pulled a short interval?
12:58:32 <Jake> it must have, unless it didn't
13:00:01 <ynpvisitor83> With the clear view, you all could not have missed it.
13:00:16 <ynpvisitor83> Time to go, enjoy BH.
13:02:11 <ynpvisitor2> you mean the next night time one?
13:03:15 <ynpvisitor2> so earlier on chat it sounded like Jake might have been watching Grand about 1020
13:05:56 <ynpvisitor2> fluffy
13:19:44 <Betty> Lion
13:20:35 <Kevin L™> Lion starts with an L. right?
13:20:50 <Betty> no with a roar
13:24:04 <Betty> watch for Grand and Daisy, night all
13:24:26 <Kevin L™> Night
13:28:28 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:55:59 <Graham> looks like the snow is melting!
14:04:54 <Kevin L™> Grand
14:05:07 <Kevin L™> .
14:05:24 <Kevin L™> Nope.
14:05:50 <Casey> I was wondering how lagged my feed must be.
14:06:11 <Kevin L™> I couldn't even get my question mark out.
14:06:37 <Kevin L™> Looks like DaveM did find it at 1018. Not sure how we all missed it.
14:11:08 <Graham> were you napping?
14:12:07 <Kevin L™> Probably a bit woozy still.
14:13:44 <Graham> Lion trying
14:29:43 <ynpvisitor33> it has been raining all day
14:29:59 <ynpvisitor33> Lion
14:30:26 <ynpvisitor33> well kinda Lion
14:30:42 <ynpvisitor33> was that a minor or a burp?
14:31:11 <ynpvisitor57> That was interesting
14:33:18 <ynpvisitor33> yeah, it got going for a minute, so minor?
14:36:01 <Casey> DaveM posted a minor 1629. Good observation, 33.
14:36:18 <Casey> OF
14:47:35 <Casey> Lion
14:47:46 <Graham> go go go
15:26:48 <Casey> Grand
16:04:55 <Graham> Lion
16:04:57 <Graham> again
17:56:53 <kcmule> OF
19:34:11 <kcmule> OF ie
21:16:55 <ynpvisitor99> OF
21:36:20 <ynpvisitor5> Boy, when Kevin messes up a geyser, he sure does it. Enjoy B
21:36:31 <ynpvisitor5> Enjoy BH if is goes.
