05:41:31 <Jimbo Ds> Ds stands for Darmstadtium
05:50:16 <Kevin L™> Guess it beats Bs!
06:21:41 <ynpvisitor...> We need the static cam a bit to the left. You would think with all the earthquakes this would have already happened if that was the cause last time :)
06:22:53 <Kevin L™> Either that or a second one that would show to the left!
06:24:12 <Jimbo Ds> Watching the radar - big storms in SD now
06:32:07 <ynpvisitor...> You're not advocating for the return of the old static cam are you? How retro! :)
06:32:50 <Kevin L™> It makes a good backup!
06:33:59 <ynpvisitor...> and rural people still on dial-up might actually get a view of the basin, and we would have a general view when the stream is zoomed and and and
06:34:40 <ynpvisitor...> Sorry, you know how I get :(
06:35:16 <Kevin L™> Do they still do dial up?
06:36:43 <ynpvisitor...> Emigrant I think
06:37:33 <Kevin L™> I thought everything was at least DSL now.
06:37:53 <ynpvisitor57> Emigrant is still using BBS's with gopher
06:38:18 <ynpvisitor57> got my 2400bps modem
06:38:27 <ynpvisitor57> echo atz
06:38:33 <ynpvisitor...> Now that's retro!
06:38:50 <ynpvisitor57> echo atdt 8001234567
06:39:13 <ynpvisitor57> Silver Gate still doesn't have broadband
06:39:25 <ynpvisitor57> Not a joke
06:39:42 <Kevin L™> I can remember the days when my brother and I would have to call each other and start the modems manually to transfer files.
06:45:15 <ynpvisitor78> Grand beehive and aurum before breakfast. That's a good start to the day!
06:46:15 <Kevin L™> :p
06:49:58 <ynpvisitor78> Any word on cam?
06:50:28 <Kevin L™> ?It is broken.
06:51:08 <ynpvisitor78> :p
06:51:49 <Kevin L™> I suspect that it may be the cam itself. I know they want it back on.
06:52:30 <ynpvisitor78> Could be more than a few days then
06:55:14 <Kevin L™> I think so.
06:57:53 <Kevin L™> FYI light rain to the west but building. Some snow mix.
07:00:47 <Eric> OF
07:18:06 <ynpvisitor7> They probably are on the same amazon delivery route Kevin is on. So if they ordered parts it could be August before the delivery truck gets there.
07:26:24 <ynpvisitor8> oh well, this does not look good :-(
07:34:27 <Betty> hey Jimbo, I work in Darmstadt :-)
07:46:28 <Jimbo Ds> Didn't know that
07:46:46 <Betty> :-)
07:48:44 <Kevin L™> How long is your commute Betty?
07:49:12 <Betty> fast train is 50 min
07:49:24 <Betty> that´s not too bad
07:49:37 <Kevin L™> How many km?
07:49:42 <Betty> 50
07:53:20 <Kevin L™> I was thinking that Darmstadt was farther than that but thinking about it when we went there we took a wrong turn and ended up in Kassel.
07:53:58 <Betty> ouch! Kassel is 3 hrs from here
07:55:01 <Betty> bbl, off to swim some lines
07:55:05 <Kevin L™> I didn't say we were smart! It was a fun detour though. I never did mind getting lost in Germany because I always saw fun things and Kassel was great.
07:55:32 <Betty> cool then :-)
07:55:43 <Betty> bye
07:55:53 <Kevin L™> Later!
08:04:07 <ynpvisitor89> how was this morning's Beehive? :D :D :D
08:04:37 <Kevin L™> Darn, it went in the dark again. :)
08:08:35 <ynpvisitor80> Beehive was very nice
08:09:07 <Eric> Morning Dave. F&M still throwing up junk?
08:09:13 <Kevin L™> Big green blob heading into the park.
08:09:35 <ynpvisitor80> Gazers are done with the rock pile. It is unattended
08:10:19 <ynpvisitor80> Waiting for tilts baby with Steve o and Donnie
08:12:22 <Casey> What geysers are you planning on breaking today?
08:12:58 <ynpvisitor80> Hoping to get to great fountain and fountain today
08:13:09 <Casey> Nice. I see you caught Aurum. Well done.
08:13:45 <Casey> Thanks for being out eyes out there
08:13:52 <Casey> *our eyes
08:13:56 <ynpvisitor80> And with only a half hour investment
08:13:58 <Casey> Yes. I'm borrowing your keyboard.
08:15:13 <ynpvisitor80> Aurum has erupted around 7-8 time period 3 of last 5 mornings
08:19:37 <Kevin L™> Do you have video?
08:20:10 <ynpvisitor80> I'm just using chat only
08:20:58 <Kevin L™> Did you TAKE a video?
08:21:52 <ynpvisitor80> No sorry. I don't really take pictures or video much
08:24:39 <ynpvisitor80> Oblong cycles every 10 minutes. Saw 2 floods over rim that didn't produce an eruption
08:26:24 <Kevin L™> Been up to Daisy?
08:27:07 <ynpvisitor80> Couple of days ago
08:28:42 <ynpvisitor80> Black sand is still thumping
08:41:56 <Eric> OF ie
08:42:05 <Eric> aurum?
08:42:31 <Kevin L™> That would be a short interval for Aurum
08:42:45 <Eric> yes...and hard to verify with only static
08:42:57 <Eric> nice steam column between trees.
08:43:02 <Eric> on the last image
08:44:12 <ynpvisitor80> No Aurum
08:44:20 <Eric> Yesterdays static cam:
08:56:52 <ynpvisitor57> Thats awesome
08:57:36 <Eric> there are some chrome extensions that let you control the speed of the video too if you want to see it at slower speeds.
08:58:27 <ynpvisitor...> It is great fun.
09:16:56 <Eric> At some point I want to get these all up publicly and automated so they are there each day. I am recording 5 of the static webcams.
09:17:31 <Eric> Trying to find an inexpensive place to put them all as the storage costs start to add up.
09:17:46 <ynpvisitor57> Eric have you added the new Lake camera?
09:19:40 <ynpvisitor1> Kevin, I took a video of tilts baby for you but it is too large to send
09:20:06 <ynpvisitor1> Skies starting to darken again
09:43:55 <ynpvisitor57> NPS webpage now shows an image of the lightning strike
09:43:58 <ynpvisitor57> June 27, 2017: Nearby lightning-strikes have taken down the live-stream camera. We are currently working to determine what all got affected, and how to get the camera back online. Please be patient as we work through this problem. In the meantime, here's one of the nearby strikes that the webcam did capture.
09:46:41 <Eric> Nice...glad they are working on it.
10:13:33 <Betty> OF
11:28:59 <Betty> Aurum?
11:29:26 <Betty> looks like
11:29:44 <Betty> yep
11:50:07 <Betty> OF ie
12:04:15 <ynpvisitor45> webcam Aurum! impressive, Betty
12:04:21 <ynpvisitor45> well done
12:04:36 <Betty> yay :-)
12:22:43 <Betty> daywork is done with 3 webcam entries today , heading out. Enjoy the rest of the day. Night all
16:44:02 <Eric> OF via static
16:44:58 <Eric> So if anyone is around...why is the 1836 Grand a D1 @ 22minutes?
16:45:56 <Eric> I assume we will have grand @ 1858...
17:03:25 <ynpvisitor6> Grand seems to be 6h20m +/- 30 lately
17:10:50 <Eric> That would match the average math :-)
17:11:02 <Eric> I was 1 minute off...not bad :-P
17:29:53 <ynpvisitor12> We are free!!!
17:35:29 <ynpvisitor12> I'll trade missing rock pile today for grand beehive aurum tilts baby grand great fountain fountain and a full rainbow grand!
17:48:50 <ynpvisitor6> Did anyone see F&M?
17:49:11 <ynpvisitor2> No
17:49:36 <ynpvisitor2> Rock pile cried wolf too many times
17:49:43 <ynpvisitor6> F&M is a total jerk
17:50:18 <ynpvisitor2> Polly left after watching for it for days
17:53:03 <ynpvisitor2> Prior event cycle drenched a few gazers
17:53:33 <ynpvisitor6> Wow, thats interesting
18:24:34 <Kevin L™> I sure didn't see anything on the cam that looked like F&M.
18:25:07 <ynpvisitor6> I think you saw as much as folks in basin ;)
18:25:33 <Kevin L™> Bet you are right. Only it is worse on them!
18:57:48 <ynpvisitor99> What is that erupting on the mt washburn southern view cam?
18:59:00 <Kevin L™> I think it is just a stram cloud.
18:59:54 <ynpvisitor99> Its been there for a while in that same spot, ive been watching it for about ten minutes now
18:59:57 <Kevin L™> Think cooler teps and high humidity.
19:05:45 <ynpvisitor79> it's gonna blow!!!
19:47:52 <ynpvisitor86> Eric, to answer an earlier question: D0 is when turban delay occurs. Steve O was at grand 25 minutes before he saw a turban. So, assumed turban was D0.
19:51:05 <ynpvisitor3> I've got an image and a spinning circle. Cam still down?
19:52:04 <ynpvisitor86> Yes, cam is still down
19:52:18 <Kent> Thanks
