22:39:12 <ynpvisitor48> hi
03:52:23 <ynpvisitor91> first time I've seen fog for a while
03:52:41 <ynpvisitor91> must be the new webcam
04:33:53 <Dave from B> brrrr...55 right now in Blgs
04:34:42 <joethermop> same here
04:35:25 <ynpvisitor91> about 73 here
04:36:09 <ynpvisitor58> 57 heavy urban flooding in slc
04:51:15 <Dave from B> 58, you got rainstorm?
04:52:40 <ynpvisitor58> Yes about 4a.m. Lots of rain in short time. roads closed and basements flooded
05:01:46 <ynpvisitor999> fog's clearing
05:02:57 <Kevin L™> Cold here too. Only 74°.
05:05:19 <ynpvisitor999> 74 is about the average summer temperature
05:06:26 <ynpvisitor999> in my country at least
05:06:38 <joethermop> fluffy
05:07:46 <ynpvisitor999> getting the time for this eruption is going to be hard
05:29:10 <ynpvisitor2> Was only 52 here in NH
05:55:34 <Kevin L™> Wouldn't this be our luck to get the cam back and have Giantess erupt in this mess?
06:04:23 <Jimbo Uranium> Yeah, but Giantess eruptions last for a few days
06:04:56 <ynpvisitor999> about two days if I'm right
06:05:23 <Jimbo Uranium> that's accurate
06:08:43 <Art> Interesting notes from Polly on Steamboat last couple days
06:12:50 <Art>
06:13:04 <Art>
06:15:32 <Art>
06:17:53 <Jimbo Uranium> Thanks Art - didn't know about that page
06:26:26 <Kevin L™> But the best of Giantess is at the start.
06:29:31 <Art> There's also the data set on GT
06:29:34 <Art>
06:30:10 <Jimbo Uranium> Hey Kevin, we should be so lucky!
06:34:20 <Dave from B> Sorry, no Giantess dentist trips anytime soon...although I am going to my first baseball game Friday since the debacle.
06:34:32 <Kevin L™> At least BH will be late afternoon. Hopefully we will have controls by then.
06:34:58 <Kevin L™> Bringing your mouth guard & helmet?
06:35:24 <Dave from B> I'm going to hide behind others
06:35:24 <Kevin L™> Static shows fog lifting.
06:35:42 <Kevin L™> Sure, put Becca in front of you....
06:39:02 <ynpvisitor999> fluffy
06:40:05 <ynpvisitor999> nice static image
06:41:10 <Kevin L™> My image was frozen in the fog. Just realized it when OF erupted.
06:46:19 <Kevin L™> I will be lurking or on iPad for most of today.
07:27:07 <Casey> Morning
07:27:22 <ynpvisitor999> morning
07:30:57 <Casey> It's good to see the rest of GH in view
08:04:07 <Eric> Morning
08:04:32 <Casey> Hi Eric
08:04:45 <Eric> Hey Casey
08:05:20 <Eric> I meant to ask what part of TN you were from yesterday...I lived near Nashville for a while.
08:06:15 <Casey> I'm in Jackson (between Nashville and Memphis)
08:11:44 <Eric> ahh, Nice...I have made the Nashville-Memphis Drive once...beautiful country.
08:24:56 <Casey> People around here think that's the most boring stretch of road. I'm glad someone appreciated it.
08:28:23 <Eric> Love the Fall colors :-)
08:29:43 <Casey> Uh oh. I lost the video feed
08:29:56 <ynpvisitor999> same here
08:30:53 <ynpvisitor999> hopefully restarting with new settings
08:31:08 <Casey> Back up
08:31:51 <Casey> Although the settings section still says "OF Webcam is DOWN"
08:33:21 <Eric> uggg, they definitely reset the camera
08:33:36 <Eric> not sure why it's not showing webcam up :-(
08:39:33 <ynpvisitor74> Mine shows it as up
08:39:44 <Casey> Mine does now as well
08:40:26 <Eric> ohh, mine finally says up too :-0
08:40:42 <Eric> Guess it took a few minutes for the service to translate everything
08:42:31 <Eric> Getting Turbans...wish the camera had a camop :-|
08:42:53 <Eric> or could just magically pan slightly left :-P
08:48:18 <Casey> It was still facing toward Giantess when I stopped watching yesterday. How did it get moved to it's current position?
08:55:04 <ynpvisitor94> Nice clear dome :)
09:05:45 <Art> Casey, I'd just guess that whoever was "working on it" moved it since I don't think cam op controls are back yet
09:06:01 <Art> If you look at the GOSA Youtube replay you can see they adjusted it a couple times
09:11:20 <ynpvisitor113> I think campos will get it later today if things go well.
09:19:01 <Eric> Another gods...please pan left :-P
09:19:40 <Eric> Grand ie
09:19:40 <Casey> Grand 1118
09:20:24 <ynpvisitor102> Ha, I came on for Grand. I forgot we cannot see it
09:20:24 <ynpvisitor999> T--
09:21:07 <Eric> Tip, Tot, Toe, Tie, The?
09:21:21 <ynpvisitor999> Turban start
09:21:33 <Eric> Ohh, thought we were playing hangman :-P
09:23:04 <ynpvisitor999> :)
09:26:53 <Casey> I'm pretty convinced somebody broke Aurum while the cam was down.
09:27:40 <Eric> Dave isn't here...definitely his fault!
09:27:45 <Eric> Aurum
09:27:46 <Eric> .
09:27:46 <Eric> .
09:27:47 <Eric> .
09:27:47 <Eric> .
09:27:48 <Eric> .
09:27:49 <Jimbo Uranium> AURUM
09:27:51 <Eric> ..
09:28:01 <Eric> Nice call casey
09:28:17 <ynpvisitor999> !
09:28:28 <ynpvisitor63> It always slows in Summer. Dry humor. Pun intended.
09:28:32 <ynpvisitor999> Visible on static
09:28:47 <ynpvisitor94> That was both excellent and funny.
09:28:49 <Eric> Yes, nice clear tall eruption from start
09:28:49 <ynpvisitor63> That did it.
09:29:02 <Eric> OF blowing left, giantess blowing right!
09:29:21 <Eric> I like your pun 63 :-D
09:34:14 <ynpvisitor94> That would be a good reference cam capture for Aurum. Unencumbered.
09:40:20 <ynpvisitor999> Grand T1Q
09:53:11 <ynpvisitor999> OF
09:53:52 <ynpvisitor999> 1152
10:00:20 <Jimbo Lithium> Considerably lighter now
10:00:40 <ynpvisitor999> indeed, and one of the most used metals in batteries
10:29:47 <ynpvisitor58> I think Lead still beats Lithium.
10:30:30 <ynpvisitor35> Hot lead beats anything.
10:30:38 <ynpvisitor58> Sodium looks like it will replace Lithium maybe, possibly, someday.
10:55:54 <Kent> Would developing the GT app for iPhone require a lot of effort? Just curious. I'm Android.
10:57:51 <Art> Depends on how much experience you have with C# and/or Swift
10:59:30 <ynpvisitor999> on the topic of the GT app: when I installed it, al years were more than 40,000 years ahead
10:59:46 <Art> From what I can gather from looking at the code for the Android version there's a local SQL database created and sync'd/populated from a non-public GT API.
11:01:45 <Kent> I don't know what C# and/or Swift are which answers your question. I was just curious in general. With free GT around the NPS app developed with public funds seems a waste. Giving our guys a few buck to add iOS makes more sense to me.
11:01:48 <Art> You'd also need to determine how much time you'd want to spend on mirroring the UI look and feel, just creating a menu that slides out like the Android hamburger is a little bit of time
11:04:44 <Kent> GT is a bit different than the NPS app but far more informative and useful. Real scientists use GT for data not NPS. I have seen GT running on a laptop behind the OFVC visitors counter.
11:05:11 <Kent> Never mind :)
11:05:54 <Art> So the answer is it's a good amount of work and you'd need someone who's proficient in either C# or Swift to donate there time to develop it
11:06:18 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks Art
11:06:37 <Art> Jake can probably weigh in a bit more on the topic ;)
11:06:38 <Jake> good amount of work, yes. there are 2 separate iOS apps in the works right now
11:07:19 <Art> I just broke down and switched to Android
11:07:38 <ynpvisitor999> could one of the developers have a look at the code that determines the date that's downloaded?
11:07:44 <ynpvisitor999> the GT app, that is
11:08:02 <Jake> one is made by a GT developer, Tom in Germany. the other was made by Heinrich Koenig
11:08:48 <Jake> DG, try downloading it again and if you see the same issues, send an email to with screenshots
11:08:58 <ynpvisitor999> will do
11:09:25 <Jake> the Android app has some inconsistencies on first load. closing the app after install and re-opening fixes some issues, but you may have something else going on
11:13:22 <Jake> I'm thinking about making GT self-sustainable money-wise possibly with a donation model. So I'm happy to hear Kent is willing to support ;) The team likes keeping it all free and have been happy to develop on their own time. It's unlikely we'd raise enough to pay market values for development, but enough to cover server costs and other technical services
11:14:05 <Jake> the NPS paid $40k - $50k for their app, which is much simpler than the GT app
11:14:24 <Jake> it is a lot prettier though
11:15:58 <ynpvisitor...> I no longer give to "Yellowstone Forever" since they went all Hallmark on me so GT could have the bit of money I gave them.:)
11:25:04 <Jake> what is "going Hallmark"?
11:25:33 <Jake> ..., just send your bank acct numbers to me, thx
11:26:15 <Jake> Plate ie
11:26:52 <Art> The new name of Yellowstone Forever, I think most people think it's terrible
11:29:34 <ynpvisitor...> "Yellowstone Forever"is totally phoney and I assume thought up by a paid consultant. The Yellowstone Association is old and historic. I think? it was the first of its kind. When you make a reservation at Bryce it is through Bryce Forever, a commercial company. Just another of my personal hobby horses.
11:29:38 <Art> Doesn't convey the same meaning/mission as Yellowstone Association or Yellowstone Park Foundation did
11:38:39 <joethermop> OF
11:40:01 <Jake> I think Zion has a Zion Forever
11:40:44 <Jake> there's so much money and big wig VPs involved with Yellowstone Forever it makes me feel icky
11:42:19 <Jake> Yellowstone Forever doesn't make geological sense either
11:42:56 <ynpvisitor...> :)
11:42:57 <Jake> but who would give money to "Yellowstone For-the-time-being"?
11:44:34 <ynpvisitor1> Youtube bloggers think it's Yellowstone No More Soon.
11:44:53 <ynpvisitor...> Yellowstone Forever is an "Alternate Fact."
11:46:48 <ynpvisitor...> Jake, I am going to use "Yellowstone for the time being" without attribution. Sorry
11:47:52 <ynpvisitor999> Dome ie on the static cam?
11:48:49 <ynpvisitor114> Who broke Vixen? Kevin?
12:58:40 <ynpvisitor61> glad to see the cam back up! is it under cam op control yet?
12:58:56 <ynpvisitor999> not yet
12:59:38 <ynpvisitor61> seems like better optics and color! Can't wait to see zoom
13:01:11 <ynpvisitor999> higher bitrate
13:01:20 <ynpvisitor999> it's the same webcam type
13:16:34 <joethermop> OF
13:16:36 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1516
13:32:08 <ynpvisitor102> camera control :)
13:32:26 <joethermop> great!
13:37:15 <ynpvisitor66> :)
13:37:27 <joethermop> :)
13:38:06 <ynpvisitor66> Just in time for Grand and Beehive.
13:38:25 <ynpvisitor66> Is it Friday?
13:38:52 <ynpvisitor24> Awesome! Great to have the cam back!
13:40:22 <ynpvisitor66> Lion looking good.
14:01:06 <Dave from B> Does everyone have to take the driving test over since its been so long?
14:03:10 <ynpvisitor12> As long as they don't crash it into a tree.
14:03:45 <Dave from B> If Kevin's driving......
14:03:55 <Dave from B> it's rocks we have to worry about:)
14:06:22 <joethermop> Lion
14:09:01 <Dave from B> woohoo...a geyser
14:22:08 <joethermop> gtg enjoy the view
14:23:21 <Dave from B> Last BH interval was longest in last 15 intervals
14:24:00 <Dave from B> So, go sit at Grand before watching BH
14:24:05 <Kevin L™> Always a ray of hope Dave...
14:29:55 <Kevin L™> Great view of split cone!
14:30:54 <Kevin L™> Can almost see a lightning burn!
14:31:03 <Dave from B> That lightning bolt made SC a little bigger!
14:32:13 <ynpvisitor36> must have! thats really cool
14:32:51 <Biddle> is this a completely new camera or did they just fix the old one?
14:37:13 <Dave from B> New camera..idenitcal to last one
14:37:31 <Dave from B> And, this page still spells words incorrectly
14:44:35 <ynpvisitor29> Eric should code the page to incorrect all of our spelling and typos :)
14:45:18 <ynpvisitor29> Incorrect= incorrect
14:45:56 <ynpvisitor29> Incorrect = auto correct
14:48:03 <ynpvisitor102> Which will be first -- Old Faithful or Daisy?
14:49:15 <Biddle> Beehive
14:49:21 <Biddle> I hope, anyway
14:50:18 <ynpvisitor102> Bad choice. We'd have to wait for Old Faithful before we could zoom into Beehive
14:51:21 <Biddle> True. If it started immediately after OF finished that would be perfect
14:51:36 <Kevin L™> Daisy wins
14:52:01 <ynpvisitor88> Hi Daisy. Good to see you're still with us.
14:55:18 <Kevin L™> He was over the horizon earlier today.
15:02:12 <Dave from B> No Turbans recorded for this Grand yet
15:12:16 <ynpvisitor102> Which next? Lion, Grand or Beehive's Indicator
15:12:35 <Kevin L™> Aurum
15:12:36 <Dave from B> Grand, BHI, Lion
15:22:43 <ynpvisitor15> I think BH without indicator is next
15:23:09 <Dave from B> must be Graham:)
15:23:31 <ynpvisitor15> Nope ;-)
15:23:53 <ynpvisitor15> Next try
15:24:40 <ynpvisitor15> I'm lurking for I can't sleep
15:24:40 <Dave from B> Lion's next!
15:24:49 <Dave from B> Betty, it is late
15:25:15 <ynpvisitor15> True
15:25:29 <Dave from B> I think my prediction list was last to first:)
15:25:37 <ynpvisitor15> Good to see Lion again
15:27:03 <Dave from B> Time for me to head home...Gold Cup final tonight...
15:27:18 <ynpvisitor15> 4 Hours and the night is over
15:27:37 <ynpvisitor15> Bye Dave
15:27:54 <Dave from B> Good morning Betty
15:28:14 <ynpvisitor15> :-D
15:29:21 <ynpvisitor15> Ruft??
15:29:36 <ynpvisitor15> Rift that is
15:30:03 <Kevin L™> You were just doing that for Dave.
15:30:30 <Dave from B> Did you mean woof woof
15:30:43 <ynpvisitor15> Hi Kevin. You got me ;-)
15:31:34 <ynpvisitor15> Writing on the pad is not easy
15:33:09 <ynpvisitor15> LC ie
15:34:24 <Dave from B> now I must go...see you tomorrow
15:34:46 <ynpvisitor15> Depression?
15:36:03 <ynpvisitor15> Maybe just dwarf
15:38:17 <ynpvisitor15> Nice splashes
15:51:02 <ynpvisitor102> bhi
15:51:03 <ynpvisitor102> .
15:51:03 <ynpvisitor102> .
15:51:03 <ynpvisitor102> .
15:51:03 <ynpvisitor102> .
15:51:04 <ynpvisitor102> .
15:51:31 <Kevin L™> :)
15:51:37 <Kevin L™> Thanks Dave!
15:51:58 <Kevin L™> Got txt
15:52:44 <ynpvisitor79> word
15:52:58 <Joethermop> Thanks for text
15:53:02 <Kevin L™> Hey Ryan!
15:53:17 <Ryan> Howdy
15:54:21 <Kevin L™> Been a while.
15:54:30 <Ryan> Indeed, been busy haha
15:55:16 <Kevin L™> An engineering student busy? You have to be kidding!
15:58:08 <Ryan> Ikr? Rocket took first this summer: 9,800ft for a goal of 10,000.
15:58:56 <Ryan> Submitting a budget to send the bird to 30,000ft on an O motor
16:02:59 <Kevin L™> Bet it is a bigger budget than I would have!
16:03:54 <Ryan> Its more than I ever thought we'd realistically ask for
16:05:59 <ynpvisitor79> nice raven
16:07:49 <Ryan> Pop goes the cork
16:07:52 <Joethermop> Boom
16:10:09 <ynpvisitor79> streaming got choppy
16:14:07 <kcmule> unstable here, growing weary of refreshing every minute
16:14:16 <Kevin L™> Keeps freezing for me
16:14:26 <ynpvisitor79> did the Beehive crowd break it?
16:14:48 <ynpvisitor79> jump cut to Castle
16:19:45 <ynpvisitor102> grand
16:20:00 <ynpvisitor66> Rush hour!
16:20:29 <ynpvisitor79> streaming is better now
16:21:22 <ynpvisitor66> Agree - the resolution is much sharper. Did the NPS upgrade the network pipe as well?
16:23:24 <ynpvisitor66> Sawmill group still appears to be dead for the most part
16:25:07 <Kevin L™> I know the telco did some work on it.
16:31:19 <ynpvisitor96> just lost it
16:31:48 <Kevin L™> Think someone needs to do more work on it.
16:32:15 <ynpvisitor102> camera controls went down that time too
16:32:19 <Kevin L™> Dies during BH and just before a Grand 2nd burst. :p
16:33:58 <ynpvisitor96> well, we can't blame the T-Storms this time!
16:35:47 <ynpvisitor96> its back
16:58:04 <kcmule> nice job by Tyrone to get an Artemisia start (gt)
17:38:46 <ynpvisitor27> I know this is silly, but I hope the NPS cam peeps have learned from this latest and are prepared for the next.
17:39:14 <ynpvisitor27> What is really needed in the UGB is more bandwidth.
17:46:21 <ynpvisitor102> horses
17:46:39 <ynpvisitor72> Wow
17:48:16 <ynpvisitor72> That kid was a bit too big for a shoulder ride
17:53:51 <ynpvisitor72> OF
17:54:22 <ynpvisitor72> Static cam skills ;)
19:04:52 <ynpvisitor12> I see lightning
19:33:48 <Kevin L™> clean dome lasted a day
19:34:53 <ynpvisitor25> Kevin did it.
19:35:29 <Kevin L™> I haven't even driven it yet!
19:35:50 <ynpvisitor25> See it is all your fault
19:36:12 <ynpvisitor25> It is stuck
19:37:14 <ynpvisitor25> Need to update the park page. "Day after cam back online hit by lightning and down for unknown duration."
19:39:11 <ynpvisitor25> Well, it was fun while it lasted.
19:40:30 <kcmule> back
20:46:13 <ynpvisitor68> At least they turned the light off. Moths and bugs will be mad
20:52:02 <ynpvisitor115> More lightning.
