04:33:35 <ynpvisitor111> May visitation down 5.5% from last year
04:35:16 <ynpvisitor69> That is odd. With lower gas prices and the nice weather I am surprised.
04:38:17 <ynpvisitor69> OF 0637
05:18:59 <ynpvisitor97> may be a very nice day in the park
05:32:08 <ynpvisitor97> Lion ie
05:44:45 <Dave from B> Morning all.
05:45:26 <Dave from B> Road closures for a couple of days in May plus centennial celebration is over for NPS. Still very busy. 2nd busiest May ever
05:45:54 <Dave from B> I'll be anxious to look at bus numbers
05:49:22 <ynpvisitor22> maybe 5.5% visitors read the details in park-submissions and found its illegal to pickup a yellow stone :)
06:05:09 <Eric> Morning
06:05:30 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
06:20:21 <ynpvisitor97> OF ie
06:32:21 <ynpvisitor97> Daisy IE
06:38:42 <Dave from B> Anyone else have a jerky streaming today?
06:39:57 <ynpvisitor69> I did earlier, but was getting a windows update download.
06:40:14 <ynpvisitor69> once I got the notification to restart computer the stream got smoother.
06:43:13 <Dave from B> Thanks
06:45:24 <Eric> Lion tryin
06:51:40 <Eric> That earthquake swarm in the park seems to be accelerating
06:52:01 <Eric> got quite a few more 2.5+ in the last 24 hours and one 3.2
06:53:18 <Dave from B> Going to do a restart. Be back in a bit
06:54:54 <Eric> k
06:55:20 <Eric> Woops, that 3.2 was out of the park...apparently the utah quake map doesn't filter based on what you see
07:00:40 <Jimbo Magnesium> Checked the quake map, nothing out of the ordinary
07:00:44 <Jimbo Magnesium> in the park
07:03:01 <Eric> ya, I was looking at utah map and it showed old quakes on map, but new ones in I mistook that as new quakes.
07:08:59 <Dave from B> Updates installed. see if that helps
07:16:15 <Jimbo Magnesium> Hey Eric, page is working in Chrome
07:19:54 <Eric> Great Jimbo
07:22:10 <Eric> Guess OF seismo has gone completely offline
07:23:07 <Eric> I have added the chat only and simple stream & chat page links to the Important Links on the right
07:24:08 <Jimbo Magnesium> Isn't there a page with lots of different seismographs at Utah?
07:25:40 <ynpvisitor69> You can see recent Yellowstone quakes on UofU map (zoomable) at
07:26:21 <Jimbo Magnesium> Yeah, here's Norris Junction:
07:26:58 <ynpvisitor69> The seismograph location map (also zoomable) is at
07:29:09 <Jimbo Magnesium> The one with lots of action is Madison River:
07:31:04 <Jimbo Magnesium> The Maple Creek short period seismo is even bouncier
07:31:23 <Larry in Denver> This is the page I like because you can see thumbnails of all of the stations and compare them:
07:32:40 <ynpvisitor99> Eric -- Thanks for the chat only page. It is helpful.
07:33:18 <Larry in Denver> I see the Washburn snowman is wearing a scarf today so it must be really cold up there!
07:33:21 <ynpvisitor69> That is a nice page Larry. Thanks.
07:33:36 <Jimbo Magnesium> Yeah, that's cool, you can see the low-level activity around 6:30 - 7 AM this morning, east of Hebgen Lake (the Northern Seismic zone according the paper read yesterday
07:34:01 <Eric> So is Washburn manned 24/7?
07:35:23 <Larry in Denver> As far as I know they have someone stationed there during the fire season but this seems early, unless he/she got stuck up there. It may be the same person who built snowmen last year.
07:37:15 <Larry in Denver> The clouds are now clearing a bit on the Washburn cam
07:38:19 <Eric> The person at washburn has done a good job of keeping the cams clean :-)
07:38:42 <Eric> We need a UGB fire lookout living in the cam tree :-P
07:39:24 <Larry in Denver> Or a circular windshield wiper with the spray option that does a 360 every 5 minutes
07:39:29 <Dave from B> I bet fire lookout person has a little more free time on his hands than staff at OF!
07:40:03 <Larry in Denver> Meet and greet ambassador for those who climb up there
07:40:16 <Eric> You are a wizard should build one :-)
07:40:49 <Dave from B> We climbed Mt Holmes about 15 years ago and the way the ranger reacted to us I felt he hadn't seen anyone in decades!:D
07:40:57 <Eric> That is why they shouldn't be staff lookout living in the tree.
07:41:26 <Larry in Denver> I do have a camera just like that one at home, so I'll get right on that.
07:41:42 <Eric> :-D
07:42:17 <Eric> hey! OF seismo returns
07:42:41 <Larry in Denver> Must have been doing a major Windows 10 update
07:43:26 <Eric> only sudo apt-get upgrade for me :-D
07:46:01 <Larry in Denver> Now that Washburn clouds are gone the snowman detail can be seen better. That is the most elaborate one I've ever seen, complete with carrot colored nose and coal colored buttons
07:47:09 <Dave from B> Better view than West Entrance right now
07:47:33 <Casey> Lion
07:48:16 <Dave from B> Still nothing from Sawmill?
07:49:48 <Jimbo Magnesium> Lion OF dual
07:50:14 <Eric> Here is the snowman going up:
07:50:20 <Eric> about 1 minute into the video
07:51:11 <Eric> It is a very nice snowman
07:52:03 <Eric> Yikes, West entrance is a zoo
07:52:53 <Jake> I lost all my schmelekkles on the Beehive bet yesterday
07:53:03 <Jake> I have to start again from scratch
07:53:10 <Larry in Denver> Watching those west entrance and OF crowds I sure did expect the May numbers to be higher this year.
07:54:15 <Eric> No turbans this morning :-(
07:54:32 <Eric> I would expect grand any time
07:55:37 <Larry in Denver> Thanks for the Washburn time lapse. Now we know that the camera was moved so he could be seen on his perch.
07:56:34 <Eric> Yes, I have seen the guy there adjust the camera a few times. Since he is sitting at a communication hub, I bet he has internet.
07:57:15 <Dave from B> Jake, do you need an address to send schmeckles to?
07:58:31 <Eric> aurum
07:58:32 <Eric> .
07:58:32 <Eric> .
07:58:32 <Eric> .
07:58:33 <Eric> .
07:58:49 <Eric> camop saw it same time :-)
07:59:02 <Eric> anemone too
07:59:24 <Eric> Dang, must have just caught the tail
08:00:13 <Casey> I missed all of it...
08:00:27 <Jake> Grotto area cloud going up
08:00:46 <Jake> Dave, I've donated schmeckles in your name to The Human Fund
08:01:18 <Dave from B> Thanks...that means a lot:)
08:02:43 <Eric> grand
08:03:05 <Casey> I see that one
08:03:13 <Jimbo Magnesium> Going big on the start!
08:03:16 <Jake> cell service might be down in the UGB?
08:04:13 <Dave from B> may be right, field reports today
08:04:17 <Eric> Not sure...weird not having any turbans from Jim
08:04:27 <Eric> not sure we had many yesterday either
08:04:51 <Casey> I was thinking the same thing
08:05:09 <Jake> I know he takes days off but there have been other gazers submitting recently, too so it makes me think they don't have a connection
08:07:15 <Kevin L™> :p
08:07:43 <Jake> NPS just updated their Grand prediction so SOMEONE is out there
08:09:34 <Eric> The usgs biscuit basin cam last updated an hour ago. It uses cell signal.
08:10:09 <Jimbo Magnesium> 8 minutes
08:12:00 <Jake> Biscuit Basin cam usually updates every minute?
08:12:28 <Jimbo Magnesium> 10 minutes, probably a 1 burst, nice late activity
08:12:39 <Eric> Not positive how often it updates...I think how much sun it gets makes a difference.
08:13:15 <Jake> another thing to predict!
08:13:22 <Eric> haha
08:13:28 <Eric> and bet on?
08:13:53 <Eric> Jake...move to vegas and become a bookmaker :-)
08:14:44 <Larry in Denver> Jake Lowenstern told me last year that they were going to move the BB cam because of the trees growing in front of it but it's still in the same place so far.
08:16:21 <Jake> an in-basin report came in for Grand
08:17:17 <Jake> perhaps Jim is just not there to post courtesy Turbans
08:29:31 <ynpvisitor69> Riverside, ie.
08:36:32 <Eric> Nice news Larry...would be great to see that basin again :-)
08:45:14 <Eric> ok...OF seismo image still behaving strange. Looks like it reset again.
08:51:43 <Kevin L™> You broke it!
08:54:22 <Larry in Denver> I keep looking at the west entrance cam, thinking about all the kids in the back seats asking, "Are we there yet???"
09:23:33 <Dave from B> Daisy 1123ns
09:25:13 <Eric> wow..h265 video codec is sooo much better than h264! video compressed to a third of the size with the same quality.
09:26:14 <Eric> hey Dave...does this link play in your browser?
09:26:52 <Dave from B> Yes, it does
09:26:53 <Eric> apple just licensed the technology for all future I think it will become a popular standard
09:27:15 <Eric> probably have intel inside :-)
09:27:46 <Eric> It pretty much only works currently in IE & edge browsers with current hardware
09:29:06 <Dave from B> Technology :)
09:29:49 <Eric> Yep, thinking about putting all my timelapse static webcam videos in that format since it compresses so well.
09:36:43 <lc> hey everyone
09:37:00 <lc> just noticed a North Goggle in GT
09:37:12 <lc> anyone here see it?
09:38:03 <Dave from B> not me...thanks for catching that
09:38:12 <ynpvisitor22> yep i see u ;)
09:38:26 <lc> first one in over 3 years.
09:38:47 <ynpvisitor47> was about to ask that too lc, only if my browser didn't stop
09:39:02 <ynpvisitor22> hahaha ... but i not chat, i watch the geyser ;)
09:39:27 <lc> don't know the person that logged it.
09:40:07 <Casey> Only 3 posts and all of them are since 1002... makes me nervous about the trustworthiness of that post
09:40:43 <lc> same here Casey.
09:40:59 <Casey> I hope it really happened
09:41:13 <ynpvisitor47> was NGG in the frame when the eruption in question was submitted?
09:41:17 <lc> yes, that would be great.
09:41:37 <lc> don't know. 1038
09:42:17 <Casey> I don't see anything else on the logs that we would have been focused on instead
09:42:21 <lc> wonder if the person was close by or saw it from a distance.
09:42:31 <Dave from B> We'll definitely need more info. lc you know anyone in the basin today?
09:43:01 <ynpvisitor99> there was a little steam but no water visible. The steam was so insignificant I question the eruption.
09:43:02 <lc> cb and bill are there I think.
09:43:45 <ynpvisitor47> if that's the case, I think it was it's regular overflow cycle
09:44:04 <ynpvisitor47> then
09:44:18 <lc> since Beehive had already gone I don't think they would have been on the hill
09:46:33 <ynpvisitor47> anyways, I'm off, because apparently my browser cannot handle a livestream and a couple of javascript-heavy pages at the same time. Enjoy the geysers
09:47:39 <Eric> I doubt that NG entry...the user also entered Grand as a major :-P
09:47:46 <Dave from B> 47, major windows update today...have you done a restart of computer today?
09:48:21 <lc> I agree with you Eric.
09:48:36 <lc> hate to say it.
09:48:54 <lc> got excited for a bit
09:49:03 <Eric> For sure...we all want it :-)
09:49:26 <Dave from B> Yep....with long Lion series it wouldn't surprise me to see NG this summer
09:49:52 <Eric> It would surprise me...I have never seen one :-(
09:50:03 <Eric> Hikers on South Washburn
09:50:43 <lc> if #99 only saw steam my bet is it didn't erupt.
09:51:00 <ynpvisitor99> DaveM here. I just watched the capture again at normal speed. It looks like a normal Goggles push. No water visible and very little steam. There was more steam at the time from Little Cub which was not in eruption.
09:51:32 <Dave from B> When NG is "active", there are 2 ways toi get confused about an eruption on this cam....the sign nearby and peeps in white shirts near that area. vw will know what I'm talking about.
09:51:39 <Eric> Flag it
09:51:42 <lc> thanks Dave
09:52:12 <Eric> Yes, I have seen white shirts there many times and got excited.
09:52:21 <Eric> heading down the hill.
09:53:27 <ynpvisitor99> One of the three eruoption erported by "Hi" this morning was a Grand Major. I think we may have someone that is still learning.
09:54:11 <Eric> Yep...agree Dave
09:56:46 <Dave from B> 2 Rocket majors?
09:57:03 <Dave from B> That's interesting
09:57:05 <Eric> Thats what it looks like
09:57:10 <Dave from B> I know we can trust Polly
09:57:22 <Eric> Everyone is making up for sleeping in on their posting now :-)
09:58:20 <lc> 15 min interval, interesting.
10:06:47 <ynpvisitor99> it can happen. Not often but what fun for her.
10:19:48 <Eric> FYI, Costco in Billings now has bear spray..2 for $40
10:20:42 <Dave from B> How many do you need!:)
10:20:43 <Eric> Seems like a great price compared to what I have seen around the park.
10:44:14 <ynpvisitor50> The Costco bear spray is limited area, had a friend check the one she goes to in Washington, near Idaho border. They don't all carry it. She was disappointed to miss getting a deal.
10:52:31 <Eric> Costco billings is the only one I have heard of that carries it.
10:53:01 <Eric> Costco definitely has specialized items for different locations.
10:53:10 <Eric> I love the hawaii costcos :-)
10:54:41 <Dave from B> Eric, I totally agree re Hawaii
10:55:21 <Dave from B> We bought New Yorks for the same price as Costco Blgs.
10:58:49 <Dave from B> Tons of beach gear as well
10:59:07 <Eric> haha...I do the same. Nothing like a sunset grill with Ribeye and the ocean in front of you.
10:59:52 <Dave from B> Better than the price you get at a restaurant...3 night at VRBo on big Island...not that expensive to cook at home!
11:00:07 <ynpvisitor9> 2 Rocket majors posted within minutes of each other. I did not know that happened
11:00:33 <Dave from B> Are those the last 2 posts on GT?
11:00:38 <ynpvisitor9> yes
11:00:42 <ynpvisitor99> ithas been known to happen in the past
11:01:15 <ynpvisitor9> fun to catch
11:02:41 <Eric> I tend to eat a lot of poke when in hawaii dave, love all the variety they offer there.
11:02:48 <lc> Dave, your family coming in with you?
11:03:02 <lc> or just Becca
11:03:18 <Dave from B> lc, it looks like just Becca but plans can change
11:03:43 <Dave from B> Eric, I noticed that as well...must have been a dozen poke choices
11:05:50 <Dave from B> I can't eat seafood but if my wife loses me in a grocery store, she usually knows where to find me!
11:06:29 <ynpvisitor22> ummm... it looks like the live-cam is mounted in a tree?
11:06:48 <ynpvisitor99> yes it is
11:07:36 <ynpvisitor22> thanks :) ... so i am not drunken :)
11:08:15 <lc> we don't know about that 22. g.
11:09:19 <Dave from B> haha lc
11:10:38 <lc> I need to take a break, bbl.
11:11:11 <Eric> That snowman looks really cold on washburn south
11:11:17 <ynpvisitor22> enjoy ur bear
11:12:03 <ynpvisitor22> haha ... i mean beer... zefix...
11:17:10 <ynpvisitor22> ...i think, if the earth is so slightly in move like the live-cam at the tree does, the time is right to visit a supply-store?
11:19:02 <Eric> The park is pretty picky about where things can be located and how they look.
11:21:05 <Dave from B> What is the example you're thinking of, Eric?
11:22:30 <Eric> I assume the camera is on a tree to make it more asthetic
11:23:22 <Eric> any structure that is built or put in the ground must be reviewed by a 1000 people it seems.
11:24:33 <Eric> I would be curious of the process they go through for boardwalk replacement
11:26:53 <ynpvisitor57> is there something small that could be put on the tree to stabilize it? sounds like a physics problem
11:28:15 <Dave from B> Why not attach it to a building?
11:29:22 <ynpvisitor22> u think abt a beer crate? 57 *g
11:29:43 <Eric> all the buildings are set back pretty far dave
11:33:24 <Dave from B> True, Eric....only Photo Shop would be close but I would hate to lose clarity down basin
11:35:28 <Dave from B> And ,then trees would block your, that is a stupid idea!:)
11:37:40 <Eric> I would love to see a different cam on top of the inn! You could see black sands and the whole UGB from there.
11:37:58 <Eric> Maybe even down to MGB
11:38:33 <Eric> utoh, here comes the schmeckler
11:38:52 <Jake> I'm schmeckled out
11:40:07 <Jake> given that the cam must have a great view of Old Faithful (since that is what 99% of cam viewers want to see), I think it's in the best location
11:41:30 <Eric> location is good...but would be better if on a rigid steel pole.
11:42:11 <Jake> yes, maybe train a raven to counterbalance, you know, keep it natural
11:42:21 <Eric> fake raven
11:42:27 <ynpvisitor70> :)
11:42:52 <Eric> maybe natural like the concrete walkways?
11:43:39 <Eric> or the natural growing benches that the park service has genetically engineered?
11:44:18 <Jake> no no no, natural like the obsidian gravel that was brought in
11:44:35 <Eric> :-)
11:45:16 <Eric> next daisy 14:11 +- 4m
11:45:19 <Jake> what running the stream through a stabilizing filter? or is that too resource intensive still?
11:46:02 <Eric> haha...I actually thought about that. You could do it...but would really delay the feed.
11:46:20 <Eric> and reduce what you see visibly
11:46:37 <Eric> Lots of people hiking washburn today
11:48:13 <Jake> how much do you think it would delay the feed? minutes? or <1 minute
11:50:35 <Eric> probably less than a minute...but you would need a decent machine dedicated to it
11:51:52 <Dave from B> Eric, we would probably have to outlaw gambling on this site since some could get inside info
11:52:03 <Betty> hi all
11:52:12 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
11:52:14 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty
11:52:15 <Eric> But having a more stable platform for the camera would not only provide less seesaw affect, it would allow better quality compression of the video
11:52:29 <Kevin L™> She came back!
11:52:32 <Betty> hi Dave from B
11:52:42 <Eric> Hi Betty
11:52:54 <Betty> hi DG, Eric and Kevin
11:52:55 <Eric> Norm!
11:53:24 <Kevin L™> Get on the wrong train yesterday?
11:53:44 <Betty> hmm, no. Why?
11:56:16 <Kevin L™> Didn't see you
11:58:39 <Betty> benn to my nephews birthday party, and it was late. I was only lurking for a few minutes
11:59:09 <Betty> been*
11:59:34 <Kevin L™> Not much to see anyway.
11:59:47 <Kevin L™> Did he have a good cake?
12:01:37 <Betty> strawberry cream, woodruff cream and chokolade marshmallow cake :-)
12:02:27 <ynpvisitor22> wowzaa :)
12:02:49 <Betty> business as usual...
12:06:04 <ynpvisitor22> u make me google: what is woodruff cream *get-a-red-face*
12:07:43 <Kevin L™> Is this the one that makes such good cakes?
12:07:47 <Betty>
12:08:32 <Betty> nope, it was not him. All cakes were maid by my sister-in-law
12:08:40 <Betty> made*
12:09:15 <Kevin L™> I still laugh about the bunny cake.
12:09:38 <Betty> :-D
12:10:05 <Betty> I was impressed by the penguin one
12:11:10 <Betty> the only thing he bakes now is: PIZZA ... difficult age
12:12:27 <Dave from B> Daisy 1412ie
12:15:23 <Kevin L™> Pizza isn't a bad thing. I do that myself.
12:15:33 <Betty>
12:16:02 <Betty> yes, he does it himself too
12:16:44 <Betty> maybe you are in a difficult age, too ;-)
12:17:54 <Kevin L™> I think I am! Trying to get things done outside this week since it is only 91° right now and supposed to be 115° next week. :p
12:18:59 <Betty> I read the prediction for your area. hope the A/C works fine
12:20:06 <Kevin L™> Kid did a tuneup on the one unit and it seems to be working fine now. I may even have AC in the car next week!
12:20:26 <Betty> whoooo
12:22:29 <Kevin L™> Yep. Killed the old van. Sort of hate to part with it in a way. I have had it longer than half my kids!
12:23:01 <Eric> Damn...nailed Daisy :-)
12:23:30 <Eric> I even gave myself +- 4m...waste of a window :-P
12:23:41 <Dave from B> Kevin, any idea on your replacement vehicvle yet?
12:24:54 <Eric> hmmm, don't see local quake for that red line on OF seismo
12:25:25 <Kevin L™> Something that has windows that roll down and AC that works.
12:25:53 <Kevin L™> Guatemala has been having large quakes.
12:26:15 <Eric> what in the big red line is gone!
12:26:19 <Eric> now back!
12:26:41 <Eric> ok....of seismo is doing weird stuff
12:27:19 <Jake> it's a cover up THEY don't want YOU to know what IS going on!
12:28:23 <Eric> uhh, that image is showing seismo data for 6/13 still
12:29:00 <Eric> I think the OF seismo went through a wormhole
12:30:22 <Dave from B> cue Twlight Zone Music
12:47:16 <Eric> ohhh, the snowman is falling apart :-(
12:48:10 <Eric> OF
12:57:43 <ynpvisitor78> Time for BH, and Kevin needs a convertible. With just enough room in the back seat for a train engine.
13:00:23 <Betty> Eric, when I enlarge the streaming part and return to the dashboard, why does the chat part shrink from marmot to wolf size?
13:01:47 <ynpvisitor78> Kevin, one like this from your childhood.
13:02:26 <Kevin L™> I like it!
13:02:55 <ynpvisitor78> That one even has room in the back seat gor Grandkids.
13:03:35 <ynpvisitor78> Hard as i look, no indy.
13:04:16 <Dave from B> 78, if you're talking about Kevin's grandkids, you'll need a small stadium:)
13:05:30 <ynpvisitor78> One of these then.
13:06:12 <Dave from B> perfect!
13:06:22 <Betty> SC
13:06:41 <Eric> I found the perfect vehicle for gazers to get down to F&M in a hurry:,c_limit/Fietsbus-bike-school-busloaded.jpg
13:07:34 <Eric> Even has safety bars to hold in the ones that don't balance so well anymore.
13:07:40 <ynpvisitor78> Kevin would be like the girl in the back.
13:07:40 <Dave from B> Nice, Eric
13:08:10 <Eric> The Gazer Express
13:11:19 <ynpvisitor78> This would be better. Alternative fuel powered. Great tax breaks.
13:11:50 <Eric> We have 3 or 4 of those around Portland 78 :-) They are fun!
13:14:40 <ynpvisitor22> hahaha... drink and drive and poo and pee :)
13:16:17 <Eric> hmmm, lost in translation?
13:17:42 <ynpvisitor22> abt 78's vehicle
13:25:07 <ynpvisitor99>
13:25:25 <ynpvisitor78> Betty, do not know. He shrunk it for the simple page last night.
13:26:49 <Jake> thanks, 99, hadn't seen that yet
13:27:19 <ynpvisitor78> And I am sure no one is talking from the group.
13:27:24 <Jake> Xanterra employee, Lower Geyser Basin, after dark, I have a good guess where they were
13:28:10 <ynpvisitor78> Jake, they would not have been trying to take a soak would they?
13:28:40 <ynpvisitor99> seems like employees are getting serious and somtimes fatal burns in LGB every decade
13:29:08 <Jake> yes, there's a well-known hot spring that mixes with the river
13:29:44 <ynpvisitor78> Not only is it illegal, it would get you fired.
13:31:08 <Jake> it's technically not illegal
13:31:41 <Jake> depends whose "technically" you go by I guess
13:31:46 <ynpvisitor99> Every time this happens we are all subject to increased restrictions and oversight by the NPS
13:32:24 <Jake> right, that's the most likely outcome
13:33:37 <Eric> Betty, the chat on these pages is designed to fill the height of your browser size.
13:33:52 <Jake> there's lots of things that can go wrong with the employee hot-potting scene: after dark, not knowing where they're going, lots of thermal features in the area with steep river banks + alcohol
13:34:16 <Jake> it's more remarkable that this doesn't happen every year
13:37:58 <Betty> but when I start the dashboard it has the bigger chat part. Its only shrinking when I come back from full size streaming. when I refresh the page it is big again. ( I personally prefer the bigger chat size)
13:39:54 <Betty> underneath the chat part I have space left and would like to fill it with more chat talk :-)
13:40:31 <ynpvisitor22> oh, feel free :)
13:41:18 <Betty> I cannot change it, it is shrinking automatically!
13:42:04 <Kevin L™> Mine does the same.
13:42:26 <Eric> hmm, so when you are scrolled all the way to the top of the page, it should fill your screen from top to bottom, up to 300px tall.
13:43:03 <Eric> But you are saying when you go fullscreen with the player and then return, that isn't the case?
13:44:53 <Eric> what browser are you using betty?
13:45:43 <ynpvisitor78> Jake, does this cover it? The Firehole River is closed to swimming and bathing from the road bridge 1/2 mile upstream of Old Faithful Geyser to the road bridge at Biscuit Basin.
13:46:05 <Betty> when I refresh, the chat part is bigger, which I like. but after returning from full size streaming, the chat part does only have 7 lines. I´m on Mozilla firefox
13:46:34 <Jake> 78,no, that's the Upper Geyser Basin section
13:46:59 <Jake> this is another 7 miles north
13:48:28 <ynpvisitor104> they do not know he was in a river hot pot and not a closed one, do they?
13:48:57 <ynpvisitor78> Missed that part. i seem to reall seeing signs that say no swimming all over. Guess I am remebering wrong.
13:49:05 <EricFirefox> hmmm, I cannot make mine do that.
13:50:13 <ynpvisitor78> I have not been there, as it is always under the bear closure before Memorial Day weekend.
13:50:20 <Kevin L™> I sent you an email with my screenshot Eric.
13:50:21 <Eric> firefox does make my computer cpu go crazy though
13:50:56 <Jake> press release doesn't say. It would be difficult to receive severe burns if one stayed in the river so they likely mistepped on the way to/from. It is illegal to hot pot in 100% thermal water so it has to be mixed with the river somewhere.
13:51:00 <ynpvisitor14> Just read the log - where are/were the North Goggles eruptions? Today?
13:51:04 <ynpvisitor104> is there an update on his condition? It was reported he died, yet that report was taken down
13:52:02 <Kevin L™> I think North Goggles are suspect.
13:52:03 <Jake> press release mentions nothing of hot potting so it's possible they were just out exploring and fell in
13:52:22 <Jake> but it has all the marks of employee hot potting
13:53:13 <Kevin L™> DaveM did a review of the time and did not find anything.
13:53:40 <Eric> So kevin does the chat go bigger for you when you refresh?
13:53:49 <ynpvisitor14> it does Jake, well after dark
13:53:59 <Eric> or is that how it always is.
13:54:19 <ynpvisitor78> Well enjpoy BH. Good luck car shopping Kevin. Always more fun when you do not need one.
13:54:23 <ynpvisitor14> Thanks DaveM - with the long series of late it would be fun to see NG
13:54:25 <Kevin L™> No, it goes from filling the page to the smaller size in my screenshot.
13:54:31 <Betty> for me it is getting bigger as I refresh
13:54:45 <ynpvisitor14> this is a funny conversation :P
13:55:27 <Eric> Yes, you 2 seem to have opposite issues with the page :-)
13:55:46 <ynpvisitor78> I am on simple. I just went full screen and when I returned it was long chat. Refresh and it went back to what it is suposed to be. If thathelps any
13:55:55 <ynpvisitor14> the amazing shrinking chat box!
13:56:05 <ynpvisitor78> Or growing.
13:56:13 <Eric> Yes, I get that same issue 78...some thing Kevin is reporting.
13:56:29 <Eric> I never go full screen so didn't notice it previously
13:56:56 <Eric> Not sure about Betty's shrinking chat box though
13:58:05 <ynpvisitor78> I tried a hard refresh and clearing cache. Did not work.
13:59:14 <ynpvisitor78> Maybe it is the long distance and the chat gets shortened for her.
13:59:31 <ynpvisitor78> Well enjoy people watching
13:59:36 <Eric> Eveything is backwards in GErmany :-P
14:02:37 <Eric> Finally seeing last nights activity play out on the OF seismo :-P
14:05:19 <Betty> I don´t know what that is over here... :-p
14:10:25 <Kevin L™> If I was Indy I would erupt now.
14:12:12 <Eric> Weird stuff on the event
14:13:32 <Jake> Kevin, if you were Indy, you'd somehow miss your own eruption
14:13:35 <Jake> Castle ?
14:13:50 <Jake> yes
14:14:45 <Kevin L™> Good point Jake
14:17:04 <Betty> well, enjoy the geysers. Need sleep. Nite all
14:17:51 <Kevin L™> That Air Force plane is flying circles over the airport here today again.
14:18:09 <Kevin L™> Night Betty.
14:18:21 <Kevin L™> Time for BH!

17:21:15 <ynpvisitor32> thx 4 txt
17:21:19 <Kevin L™> At least the wind is good for a dual.
17:23:56 <ynpvisitor47> Dang cookies, almost missed it.
17:24:47 <Kitt> Did you set the timer for the next batch?
17:25:40 <ynpvisitor47> Wrong type of cookies. i was hoping a permanent cookie would keep my spell checker.
17:25:48 <Kitt> Climb Beehive
17:25:52 <Kitt> oh yeah
17:25:55 <ynpvisitor47> It did not, so I deleted it
17:26:00 <ynpvisitor47> Weee
17:26:54 <ynpvisitor47> Unfortunately the same light i had last time. Different wind so it looks better
17:27:20 <Kitt> nice height and sun
17:27:24 <Kitt> laaaaaaa
17:27:37 <ynpvisitor47> That is better, who ever tunred the Sun on
17:27:52 <Kevin L™> Somebody got a shower
17:28:11 <Kitt> ah yes, but it was a planned shower
17:28:33 <ynpvisitor47> I did not see soap
17:29:09 <Kitt> bee wants that upper bunch
17:29:50 <Kitt> oh 2nd's on sun
17:30:44 <Kitt> OK fluffy it is your turn
17:30:48 <ynpvisitor47> Imagine what BH would be like with about 5 gallons of dish soap in it?
17:31:11 <Kitt> it would be a mess that I wouldn't want to see
17:31:34 <Kevin L™> bw would be slippery
17:32:03 <ynpvisitor47> It would leave a mess like this.
17:32:54 <Kevin L™> That was nice.
17:33:18 <ynpvisitor47> Well enjoy people watching.
18:44:58 <ynpvisitor64> Is that Oblong?
18:45:46 <Kevin L™> Too early for Grand
18:46:28 <ynpvisitor64> Too big for most anything else. I'll log it.
18:47:22 <Kevin L™> Be interesting if we get a field report.
18:49:29 <Michael> Oblong reports are always better with confirmation in person.
18:49:58 <Michael> Besides, it would make someone's day to see it.
18:51:46 <Michael> Can you zoom in on Depression?
18:52:31 <Kevin L™> I am not running the cam today
18:52:51 <Kevin L™> It does look ie
18:53:08 <Michael> Oops. I should learn the volunteer schedule.
18:53:37 <Kevin L™> Really tough in the Summer. Lots of changes.
19:10:47 <Michael> Old Faithful
20:31:43 <Michael> Daisy
20:48:01 <Michael> That must be Lion in the flashlight beam.
