05:39:31 <joethermop> I kenew Dave could do it.
05:39:36 <Dave from B> yw:D
05:40:08 <ynpvisitor999> hopefully the webcam stays on this time
05:40:44 <joethermop> got the text
05:48:04 <joethermop> stream is stumbling
05:48:12 <ynpvisitor999> as per usual...
05:49:11 <Dave from B> Where is everyone...off cam to right?
05:49:25 <joethermop> I think the bit rates Gods are biteing us
05:49:33 <ynpvisitor999> think so Dave
05:50:04 <ynpvisitor999> they don't want to be showered
05:50:44 <joethermop> no showers from this one
05:51:13 <Dave from B> We had an amazing lightning show for about 45 minutes last night.
05:52:07 <ynpvisitor999> boom!
05:52:59 <ynpvisitor999> and the stream quits... as per usual
05:53:31 <ynpvisitor104> fine here.
05:54:00 <ynpvisitor999> not here... stuttering like crazy, especially at the beginning of Beehive
05:54:21 <ynpvisitor999> and now it's just a still image
05:54:25 <joethermop> gone
05:54:36 <ynpvisitor104> yeah, mine finally went too.
05:54:53 <ynpvisitor999> fix ur stream NPS
05:55:02 <ynpvisitor999> second in a row
05:56:01 <ynpvisitor103> Cam doesn't work in GT Android app
05:56:06 <ynpvisitor999> it's back, but missed more than half of the eruption
05:56:57 <ynpvisitor103> And its back
05:57:04 <joethermop> lets see gov't paperwork, tech to change resolution, about three months
05:57:54 <ynpvisitor999> and Castle ie
05:58:05 <joethermop> Castle
05:58:49 <ynpvisitor41> Saw BH fine on I phone.
05:59:27 <ynpvisitor105> # 932932 on GT
05:59:44 <ynpvisitor999> :)
05:59:50 <Dave from B> Is there a p[rize for entry #1,000,000?
06:01:56 <ynpvisitor105> 999999 would be fun
06:03:01 <ynpvisitor999> hopefully I get it
06:03:11 <ynpvisitor999> aswell as 1000000
06:04:39 <ynpvisitor105> maybe the prize should be when it will happen..
06:06:25 <ynpvisitor999> the year started with entry #889799
06:07:01 <ynpvisitor105> GT started 2011?
06:07:25 <ynpvisitor999> copyright year says so
06:08:02 <Dave from B> May 19, 2018
06:08:10 <ynpvisitor105> that is a lot of entries in 6 years
06:08:28 <Dave from B> Our businesses 40th anniversary...sounds about right
06:08:39 <ynpvisitor999> 2016 started with entry #809269
06:09:09 <ynpvisitor105> ask Jake for his prediction if he shows up today
06:09:33 <ynpvisitor999> this means, seen the first entry of 2017, that 2016 ended with entry #889798
06:09:54 <ynpvisitor999> (this includes all electronic entries for 2015)
06:10:57 <ynpvisitor999> (after doing math) that year 80529 entries were submitted
06:11:09 <ynpvisitor999> morning Jimbo
06:11:39 <J. Mendelevium> good morning
06:11:57 <J. Mendelevium> First time for this element (and it's not named after Gregor Mendel)
06:13:36 <ynpvisitor999> but after Mendeleev, creator of the periodic system of elements if I'm right
06:13:49 <ynpvisitor999> periodic table*
06:15:47 <J. Mendelevium> That's correct. Alternate spelling is "Mendeleyev"
06:17:01 <J. Mendelevium> Trivially speaking, the symbol for this element is Md, which is also the abbreviation for Maryland, where I live
06:19:55 <Eric> morning
06:20:06 <ynpvisitor999> moring Eric
06:20:10 <ynpvisitor999> morning*
06:21:39 <Eric> I see you guys got hosed by the webcam again for BH :-(
06:22:00 <ynpvisitor105> so you could be Jimbo Md
06:22:21 <Eric> Grotto area
06:23:00 <ynpvisitor5> Don't claim to be Ironman, you will get sued.
06:24:19 <ynpvisitor5> Or Tinman (and your little dog too.)
06:27:24 <J. Mendelevium> Yes, but I went with a more formal name
06:27:45 <J. Mendelevium> I have a "Fe Man" T-shirt
06:28:46 <J. Mendelevium> https://www.crazydogtshirts.com/pub/media/catalog/product/cache/0f831c1845fc143d00d6d1ebc49f446a/f/e/fe-man-1100.jpg
06:52:13 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
06:52:58 <Kevin L™> Morning
07:29:31 <ynpvisitor999> morning Mike
07:32:48 <ynpvisitor999> SC
07:37:49 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin...high of 73 for Billings today...coolest in months
07:38:33 <Mike J> Morning 999, morning all.
07:39:28 <ynpvisitor999> aisy
07:39:33 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy*
07:57:58 <Eric> Yes, all your heat is getting compressed on to us Dave!
07:59:27 <ynpvisitor999> OF
08:02:53 <Eric> high of 105 today and 106 tomorrow....yuck!
08:03:25 <ynpvisitor105> that is too hot
08:07:42 <Dave from B> 80 is hot for you, Eric
08:08:31 <Dave from B> I bet we had over 1000 lightning flashes in 45 minutes last night. That kind of thing recorded anywhere?
08:11:04 <J. Mendelevium> There's a real-time lightning tracker online somewhere (I find it when I search for it)
08:13:57 <Dave from B> Thanks jimbo
08:14:24 <J. Mendelevium> There's a couple - Intellicast and Vaisala
08:14:42 <J. Mendelevium> But I can't find a 24-hour map
08:15:14 <Dave from B> There was very little cloud to ground lightning but the cloud to cloud lightning was crazy last night
08:15:33 <J. Mendelevium> NASA has lightning data sets
08:18:22 <J. Mendelevium> Hey, check this out: http://en.blitzortung.org/historical_maps.php Need to know UTC time for your storm
08:18:38 <J. Mendelevium> The real time map is like a Geiger counter - turn your sound off!
08:19:51 <Dave from B> it was 2130-2230 Mountain time
08:20:44 <J. Mendelevium> It has a 24 hour loop. I did it for Aug 1 and I can see the activity where you are
08:21:26 <J. Mendelevium> I'm saving this site, it's fun
08:23:07 <Dave from B> Thanks Jimbo
08:24:36 <J. Mendelevium> To get closer, there's a North America map. I think I see your storm, though there was more activity to the southeast.
08:25:39 <J. Mendelevium> Oh, definitely see it now on the Aug 2 24 hour loop. Pretty massive!
08:27:33 <Casey> Morning
08:28:12 <ynpvisitor999> morning Casey
08:57:30 <ynpvisitor41> hey, why don't they get on those tourists for having their legs over the bw like they do to gazers at Oblong?
08:59:03 <Eric> I have never been bugged for sitting on the edge at oblong.
08:59:14 <ynpvisitor41> it's a new year Eric
08:59:22 <Eric> Wow...that is silly
08:59:31 <ynpvisitor41> very
09:00:45 <ynpvisitor999> 41, likely because around OF the area is (very) stable and it is unlikely for hot water to reach the tourists or thermal features to appear out of nowhere
09:00:52 <ynpvisitor41> I think it has been happening at Grand too, near the only shade to be found
09:01:28 <ynpvisitor41> maybe you should join NPS 999. Ground at Oblong is quite stable near the bw
09:01:38 <Eric> Same for oblong and the spot that is shaded at grand.
09:02:16 <Eric> Gazers spend WAY more time on the boardwalk then these rangers.
09:02:16 <ynpvisitor41> Oblong has the biggest effect because there is no seating there
09:03:01 <ynpvisitor999> on the topic of joining the NPS, I live practically on the other side of the globe
09:03:12 <ynpvisitor41> Grand went over 6 1/2 hours yesterday
09:03:35 <ynpvisitor41> people had to, gasp, WAIT...
09:04:04 <Eric> haha...yes, it has been so consistent lately.
09:07:10 <ynpvisitor104x1> I hope they don't hassle you at Aurum.
09:09:06 <Jake> I haven't been to the UGB this year, but there is noticeable vegetation smushing at Oblong from feet off the boardwalk. the vegetation at OF has been smushed for a century by feet, tires, and imported Obsidian gravel
09:10:31 <Jake> I think the value of feeling thumps at Oblong outweighs some smushed vegetation. It's easier for NPS personnel to exact authority upon 5 people at Oblong twice a day versus 1,000 people at OF a dozen times a day
09:11:41 <ynpvisitor104x1> Perhaps if they would put a wider bw in areas like that where sitting and waiting is needed it would not be a problem.
09:12:11 <Jake> ground contact is an important part of the Oblong experience so it wouldn't change that
09:13:01 <ynpvisitor999> noted that if I ever manage to go to Yellowstone, I should bring a foldable chair in case if
09:13:39 <ynpvisitor104x1> True. The old days of sitting at the edge of Artemesia are also gone.
09:13:59 <Dave from B> Jake, why not a small bench at Oblong with wider bw
09:14:10 <Jake> ground contact is only needed for 30 seconds though. A bench specifically designed to transfer the ground vibrations to the visitor would be cool
09:14:18 <ynpvisitor41> thankfully not too many rangers go to Arti, yet I have heard some gazers have been called back from the edge this year
09:14:49 <Jake> the bench and wider bw at Oblong would be nice, but it won't prevent me from squishing some vegetation when the eruption is starting
09:15:53 <ynpvisitor41> while they are building, they could reconnect between the paved path near Daisy and Oblong again.
09:16:50 <Jake> I can think of no reason why the NPS would do that
09:17:31 <ynpvisitor41> historical use before...?
09:17:40 <ynpvisitor104x1> The bw is narrow near Oblong and Aurum DG so a chair would not work. Only about 1.2 meters wide.
09:18:02 <ynpvisitor999> :(
09:18:16 <ynpvisitor41> Time for Grand?
09:18:37 <ynpvisitor999> 2 mins
09:18:46 <ynpvisitor104x1> Depression has a great spot for chairs.
09:21:51 <Jake> under the current YNP management model, increasing access is not part of the picture. more bw means more maintenance & initial construction costs all to serve a small % of visitors. There are many, many more pressing infrastructure needs in YNP without the funding to deal with
09:21:57 <ynpvisitor41> Grand might be waiting for a proper OF window
09:22:38 <ynpvisitor41> I agree Jake, which is why I was surprised they built the overlook and a parking lot at Grand Prismatic...
09:22:38 <ynpvisitor104x1> Or for the cam to go down.
09:23:03 <Casey> Grand
09:23:17 <Jake> for Grand Prismatic, the public pressure got too great and they had to do something
09:23:36 <Dave from B> 41, with all the publicity of overlook area on social media, NPS really didn't have a choice
09:23:52 <ynpvisitor41> in cases of death, they often CLOSE the area, I was impressed they stepped up and built something
09:24:04 <Dave from B> NPS had to save mountainside from more signs of overuse
09:24:21 <ynpvisitor41> that is a steamy Grand for almost noon
09:25:09 <ynpvisitor999> 66 F
09:25:32 <ynpvisitor999> or 19 C
09:25:58 <ynpvisitor999> or 292 K
09:26:03 <Jake> unless Oblong Geyser changes its eruptions in a major way, it will never generate enough interest to call for changes to access. about 3/4 of the people I tell to wait for Oblong because its about to erupt have a very muted reaction to the experience
09:26:54 <Jake> Anemone is better than Oblong, more fun, more memorable
09:28:08 <ynpvisitor41> Eric, is it hot enough for you?
09:29:21 <ynpvisitor41> if you get to feel the thumps, I would say Oblong is way more memorable
09:32:33 <ynpvisitor104> a 2nd on grand?
09:34:06 <Casey> I missed it if there was. Pretty long eruption if it was a single burst.
09:34:47 <ynpvisitor104> Maybe another too. So hard to tell from this far away.
09:34:54 <Casey> Total duration appeared to be ~11m
09:35:04 <ynpvisitor104x1> Looked like a second to me.
09:38:02 <ynpvisitor104> Only a single. Interesting.
09:38:27 <ynpvisitor104x1> Nope, T1Q
09:38:31 <ynpvisitor41> it is deceptive when it is so steamy
09:38:50 <ynpvisitor104x1> And so far back.
09:39:14 <ynpvisitor41> here's hoping by the end of August we get rid of these hazy skies.
09:43:10 <ynpvisitor95> Is that smoke
09:43:15 <ynpvisitor95> Don't see anything on the radar weather wise
09:54:04 <ynpvisitor999> someone got injured
09:54:49 <J. Mendelevium> I think haze is from western Montana fires
10:00:19 <ynpvisitor41> from Western MT fires and Idaho fires
10:00:32 <ynpvisitor41> fires are all around, thankfully not in YNP
10:06:50 <Dave from B> We won't need an eclipse to block out the sun
10:07:21 <ynpvisitor41> fire haze could come into play for it
10:07:56 <ynpvisitor41> look at inci web, many fires to the SW, W and NW of YNP
10:08:48 <ynpvisitor41> unless the cam got a new filter...
10:08:52 <ynpvisitor41> Daisy ie
10:10:45 <ynpvisitor95> Last August-Sept the fires were real bad in the park
10:10:56 <ynpvisitor95> I remember my eyes burning and people wearing masks
10:12:12 <ynpvisitor999> good evening Betty
10:12:20 <Betty> hi all. Is that smoke?
10:12:44 <Betty> hey DGInc
10:12:53 <ynpvisitor999> think so, seen the conversation above
10:12:55 <Casey> Hi Betty
10:13:08 <Betty> ohoh, not good
10:14:33 <Eric> Hi Betty :-D
10:14:44 <Eric> Yes, very smokey in the UGB
10:15:01 <Betty> hi Casey and Eric
10:15:22 <Eric> smoke up at mammoth too, but west looks pretty clear...other than traffic :-P
10:15:59 <Eric> Washburn camera really shows off the smoke
10:40:29 <ynpvisitor7> west is very hazy, you can smell smoke in town today
10:41:27 <Betty> there are fires in Western Montana?
10:41:59 <ynpvisitor95> https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/state/27/
10:42:27 <Betty> thanks, 95
10:44:39 <ynpvisitor7> fires all around Betty
10:44:51 <Betty> :-(
10:44:53 <ynpvisitor7> this is the first day one could taste them though
10:46:40 <Betty> but still no fires in the park? nothing on NPS
10:47:02 <Dave from B> There was one fire just to the east
10:47:22 <Betty> hi Dave
10:47:32 <Betty> and hi Jake
10:47:43 <ynpvisitor95> June fire I believe is the only one in/near the park?
10:51:17 <ynpvisitor7> June fire is to the EAST
10:52:15 <Betty> Yesterday I read about Katla, the big volcanoe on Iceland, becoming more active this year.
10:52:15 <ynpvisitor7> so no haze from it, in basin at least
10:54:50 <ynpvisitor999> precursor for another eruption of Eyafjallajökull?
10:55:29 <ynpvisitor7> fires are a precursor? Odd statement
10:56:16 <ynpvisitor999> maybe you should read the sentence above that
10:56:39 <ynpvisitor7> sorry 999, missed that
10:56:43 <Betty> no, Katla precursor of Eyafjallajökull
10:57:04 <Betty> it could be, possibly
10:58:56 <Betty> it is located underneath a big glacier, and they registered lots of melting ice and water flows out of that glacier
10:59:52 <ynpvisitor999> correction for that long volcano name, should be Eyjafjallajökull (missed the first j)
11:00:15 <Jake> that was obvious, DG, no need to point it out
11:00:21 <Jake> hi Betty
11:00:30 <Betty> the eruption of Eyafjallajökull a few years ago stopped all flights in Europe for about a week. hopefully that does not happen again
11:00:50 <Casey> Rookie mistake
11:01:04 <Dave from B> 999, how dare you mispell such an easy word!:D
11:01:28 <ynpvisitor999> I typed it from the top of my head, not searched the name
11:01:44 <Betty> I did copy and paste, so mine is wrong too
11:01:52 <Dave from B> None of us would have even known
11:02:21 <Jake> haha, we're just joking
11:02:52 <ynpvisitor999> not bad though, considering I saw the name for the last time in 2008 or 2009
11:03:09 <Jake> us sheltered Americans who have no need of other languages
11:03:14 <Betty> you did quite good
11:04:14 <Casey> Super impressive. I would have just said "that volcano in Iceland that ruined everyone's travel plans".
11:04:17 <Betty> yeah, Jake, you only need to learn ther languages just for fun :-)
11:04:34 <Betty> *other
11:04:52 <Jake> no need to learn German, all (most) Germans speak English
11:04:57 <Betty> that was my concern, Casey
11:05:25 <Betty> German language is overrated
11:05:59 <Betty> why did noone tell me that there was no need to learn German???
11:06:34 <Jake> I often lament English becoming the world language because of its difficulties in pronunciation (more in US than Britain), but it's probably better than Icelandic
11:06:59 <Betty> haha, yes :-)
11:07:22 <ynpvisitor999> definitely
11:08:28 <Casey> I'm just thankful I'm a native English speaker, otherwise I'd never be able to learn it
11:09:03 <Betty> not too bad to learn it
11:09:32 <Eric> I learnt it good
11:09:47 <Betty> really?
11:09:55 <Eric> It is the Best Language
11:10:12 <Eric> :-P
11:10:23 <ynpvisitor999> Dutch is, Eric
11:10:36 <Betty> REALLY???
11:10:54 <Eric> Hmm, then our English must be the Biggliest
11:11:37 <Jake> English is considered easy by most multi-lingual I talk to. All languages have their oddities. A German friend of mine loved how one can combine words in English and it has meaning
11:12:06 <Casey> I've actually considered learning Dutch (or I guess Flemish). I was surrounded by Flemish speakers on a long flight connecting in Brussels once. I was convinced I could learn their language after that flight.
11:12:20 <Betty> that is true, Jake
11:13:47 <Betty> DGInc, any plans on visiting yellowstone?
11:14:15 <Betty> OF
11:14:44 <ynpvisitor999> have to turn 18 first if I want to go on myself
11:16:09 <Betty> you need to be 21 to rent a car
11:16:23 <Casey> Written English certainly doesn't do non-native speakers any favors.
11:16:47 <ynpvisitor999> guess I have to wait another 5 years at least if I want to rent a car here
11:17:05 <Betty> :-(
11:17:07 <Casey> Woah. That's was written a long time ago. Kindly move that comment about written English up a few spots in your mind.
11:18:53 <J. Mendelevium> I guess I'm late to the party, but Katla settled down. After the Eyjaf eruption, a Katla eruption was considered more likely, but it didn't happen.
11:19:20 <J. Mendelevium> Piton de la Fournaise in the Indian Ocean is erupting now, there's some great videos available
11:19:39 <Casey> Hey Jimbo. Was your name too long today?
11:19:57 <Jake> Lone Star Geyser is due. Cam op pan the camera and zooooooooom please
11:20:09 <J. Mendelevium> Yeah, first time every for Mendelevium
11:20:09 <ynpvisitor999> wasn't there an increase in glacial water from Katla few weeks after Eyjafjallajökull settled down?
11:20:12 <J. Mendelevium> "ever"
11:20:20 <Casey> We're in the OF window unfortunately, Jake.
11:20:33 <J. Mendelevium> I don't think so, 999, but it was under watch
11:21:21 <Casey> Wow. Best camop ever
11:21:40 <Betty> cool
11:23:09 <Dave from B> What did I miss?
11:23:14 <J. Mendelevium> Katla had earthquakes and a glacial flood
11:30:25 <Jake> BA
11:31:20 <Betty> Dome ie
11:32:26 <ynpvisitor999> I think this Dome's initial eruption, have not seen a Dome in a while before this one
11:32:31 <ynpvisitor999> SC
11:32:44 <Casey> Good catch Betty
11:33:24 <Betty> I think SC is bigger after the strike
11:33:36 <J. Mendelevium> Several inches at least
11:34:59 <Betty> I saw Dome at least on 4 frames on static
11:35:25 <Dave from B> so, it doubled in size, Jimbo?
11:35:30 <J. Mendelevium> I see Dome water
11:35:50 <J. Mendelevium> Poor Split Cone; no respect at all
11:36:21 <ynpvisitor86> Betty -- good catch on Dome. That was the initial.
11:36:34 <Jake> nice
11:36:46 <Jake> surely Giantess to follow
11:36:56 <Betty> great. I will correct the entry
11:37:38 <Betty> by what do you know it was initial? Duration or water outcome?
11:41:16 <Casey> Should we go ahead and send out a Giantess text, Jake?
11:41:36 <Jake> DaveM got a start of 1327 so the duration makes it initial is what I think he's going on.
11:42:34 <Eric> Interesting that GT failed to combine
11:42:41 <Betty> ah, I did not see DaveM´s entry
11:42:43 <Eric> I guess Domes can be close
11:42:56 <Jake> I just changed the GT setting to 5 minutes instead of 3 minutes for combinging
11:43:26 <Jake> can you delete and re-enter, Betty?
11:43:41 <Jake> just editing the entry doesn't trigger the combining
11:43:48 <Jake> Dome again
11:44:01 <ynpvisitor999> The same thing happens with an exact SC entry and an ie of the same geyser, as SC erupts for more than 10 minutes
11:44:11 <Betty> I will delete my entry, for Dave´s is the correct time
11:44:25 <Jake> yours is correct, too
11:44:37 <ynpvisitor999> is it possible to set a combine time for certain geysers individually Jake/
11:44:39 <ynpvisitor999> ?
11:45:30 <Jake> each geyser has their own setting for how many minutes apart entries can be to stay unique
11:45:55 <ynpvisitor999> and what's that time for SC?
11:46:10 <Jake> Split Cone is 5 minutes
11:47:29 <ynpvisitor999> is it possible to increase that to, for example, 20 minutes, seen the recent activity with durations of around 20 mins?
11:47:31 <Jake> I can change it if SC is lasting longer than that. I haven't been following it
11:48:04 <ynpvisitor999> page #5 of SC contains durations that are around 15-20 mins
11:48:21 <Betty> I´d love to see a Dome ini live
11:48:27 <Jake> I see that. I changed it to 20 mins for SC
11:48:34 <ynpvisitor999> thanks
11:48:59 <Jake> the simple entry combining works most of the time for most geysers
11:49:38 <Jake> it works until it doesn't. Lion is a problem with minor restart things. Grotto is a problem with huge variation in durations.
11:50:30 <Betty> wow, nice splashes
11:51:09 <Jake> Dome ini in-person is really difficult
11:51:39 <Betty> I know, but it would be nice
11:52:24 <Jake> I bet it would be easier if we could see water levels in it
11:52:35 <Betty> sand devil
11:53:12 <Betty> you need a long selfie stick :-)
11:54:39 <Betty> Lone star is in the window
11:56:15 <Betty> did it change intervals? wasn´t it at almost excactly a 3 hr interval?
11:57:40 <Jake> that is 3hrs. bbl
11:58:09 <Betty> later, Jake
11:58:22 <ynpvisitor999> see you later Jake

12:12:04 <ynpvisitor70> Vixen broke? Have not seem any reports this summer.
12:14:37 <ynpvisitor95> 70 Vixen is fine
12:14:44 <ynpvisitor95> Lots of reports in GT
12:15:21 <Betty> Dome
12:16:09 <Betty> seems the smoke blew away
12:18:11 <ynpvisitor70> I would not call the few in July lots. Must not be any vixen fans in the park.
12:20:42 <ynpvisitor70> Betty, have not been around much, how was your festival, fun and safe?
12:21:17 <Betty> yes, 10 days with a lot of fun
12:21:51 <ynpvisitor70> Good to hear. Lots of food?
12:22:25 <Betty> 2 fireworks and a parade, and a lot of food and beer and wine
12:22:50 <ynpvisitor70> Kevin likes to hear about German food. Make shim nostalgic.
12:23:02 <Betty> but after 10 days, I´m glad it is over now :-p
12:24:08 <ynpvisitor70> Friend came back from vacation, said she needed a vacation to recover.
12:24:15 <Betty> hmmm, Bratwurst, Spießbraten, big steaks, lots of candy and popcorn
12:24:42 <ynpvisitor70> Bear bait
12:25:00 <Betty> grilled salmon
12:25:15 <ynpvisitor70> Popcorn? I thought that was an American thing like peanut butter.
12:25:56 <Betty> must be a leftover from the GI´s
12:26:20 <ynpvisitor70> I have not had any good salmon for a long time. I never order it in a restaurant, they always mess it up.
12:26:25 <Betty> no festivals without popcorn

12:39:53 <ynpvisitor70> Daisy?
12:40:06 <ynpvisitor999> yes
12:40:53 <ynpvisitor70> It must be getting taller, I do not remember seeing so much water
12:41:16 <ynpvisitor999> it's 78 F outside
12:41:29 <ynpvisitor999> meaning that less steam is visible
12:44:21 <ynpvisitor70> Well lunch is over, enjoy the popcorn.
12:44:45 <Dave from B> 70, how does a restaurant mess up salmon?
12:48:25 <Betty> wow, last Lion series was about 10 eruptions
12:48:46 <Betty> Dome
12:49:08 <Betty> OF
12:50:17 <Eric> I kinda wondered that too Dave :-P It's one of the easiest fish to cook.
12:51:44 <Eric> I do like candied salmon soaked in soy sauce and brown sugar.
12:52:11 <Eric> good for the atlantic farmed stuff.
12:52:25 <Betty> time for early sleep. Night all
12:52:34 <Eric> Night Betty
12:52:34 <ynpvisitor999> night Betty
13:40:30 <ynpvisitor999> Lion ini
13:42:02 <ynpvisitor999> next Lion @ 1700 +- 10m, if series continues
14:30:28 <joethermop> OF ie
14:52:07 <Casey> Based on steam, Dome may be ie
14:52:50 <Casey> I can't tell for sure from the static images either
14:55:29 <Casey> Lion
15:07:55 <joethermop> Daisy
15:23:04 <joethermop> SC
16:05:28 <ynpvisitor87> No Grand yet? 6hr 42 m already
16:06:17 <Casey> Correct. No Grand yet.
16:06:36 <ynpvisitor87> ty
16:06:58 <Casey> No problem. The next Turban should be soon. Hopefully we'll get OF first
16:07:23 <ynpvisitor87> hopefully we can take a wide berth of OF
16:07:39 <ynpvisitor87> or keep one
16:08:14 <ynpvisitor87> Kitt needs a long one before she leaves
16:08:33 <Casey> I don't know if we have a camop or not right now. It probably was left at this angle since dome has been erupting.
16:08:55 <ynpvisitor87> I'm glad we can see the edge of Grand
16:09:08 <ynpvisitor87> or is that not?
16:09:29 <ynpvisitor87> come to think of it, can we see Grand area now?
16:09:32 <ynpvisitor87> There it is
16:09:35 <ynpvisitor87> Grand
16:09:37 <Casey> Grand
16:09:40 <Casey> good call
16:09:54 <ynpvisitor87> we can barely eek it out
16:10:31 <ynpvisitor87> maybe an op will show up before it finishes
16:10:44 <ynpvisitor87> if OF ever erupts...
16:10:44 <Casey> If we have a camop, would you please pan slightly left for a better view of Grand?
16:10:45 <Casey> .
16:10:46 <Casey> .
16:10:46 <Casey> .
16:10:47 <Casey> .
16:10:47 <Casey> .
16:10:48 <Casey> .
16:10:48 <Casey> .
16:11:10 <ynpvisitor87> I figure all my posts would have woken an op, must be AFK
16:11:58 <Casey> Yeah. It was worth a try. At least we can see a little. Looks like the Lion series is ending, so a sliver of Grand and OF may be all we get
16:12:56 <Casey> Yay! Thanks camop
16:13:04 <ynpvisitor87> 6 hr 47m
16:13:26 <Graham> Grand is broken
16:13:46 <ynpvisitor87> seems we could be closer, not sure why seeing the people waiting is important
16:14:18 <ynpvisitor91> We're in an OF window
16:14:20 <ynpvisitor87> so maybe it is fixing itself, back to 7-8 hrs, for your next arrival?
16:14:49 <ynpvisitor91> Cam needs to be on OF when in the window is my understanding
16:15:03 <ynpvisitor87> I understand that 91
16:15:26 <ynpvisitor87> just thought we could be closer to both, OF and Grand, yet maybe that window does not exist
16:15:46 <Graham> maybe, its about time something cranky happened in UGB
16:15:48 <Casey> Dome ie?
16:16:38 <ynpvisitor87> erratic BH's and 8 hour Grands, that would shake up the Labor Day crowd
16:17:05 <Graham> isnt it time for a 7h BH interval?
16:17:15 <Graham> folowed by whatever happens next
16:17:47 <Graham> OF
16:18:28 <Casey> 9 minutes into Grand. No clear pause yet.
16:19:13 <ynpvisitor91> There was a 7 hour grand just a week or two ago
16:19:35 <Graham> i said 7h for BH :)
16:20:24 <ynpvisitor91> Comment not related to your BH statement ;)
16:20:34 <ynpvisitor91> I meant that it's still amazingly well behaved lately
16:20:49 <ynpvisitor51> lol
16:21:06 <Graham> hehe i liked it when they were all below 6h
16:22:18 <ynpvisitor91> July 23-26th it was amazingly regular at just over 6 hours
16:23:38 <Graham> no more 9h +-2 intervals
16:24:03 <Casey> Ok. I'm calling it a day. Enjoy your evenings.
16:25:11 <ynpvisitor91> Thank god for that, those 9 hr intervals sucked
18:37:38 <ynpvisitor72> F&M report ????!!!!?!!?!?!
18:44:22 <ynpvisitor6> ha, I had a feeling it might go short next
18:44:59 <ynpvisitor6> could the cloud be seen on the cam??
18:45:27 <ynpvisitor51> NICE
18:45:59 <ynpvisitor6> that will change up some folks schedules
18:47:25 <ynpvisitor6> no trace of steam now, it must still be erupting
18:48:42 <ynpvisitor90> Wtf
18:48:57 <ynpvisitor6> it's F & M, it does what it wants
18:53:25 <ynpvisitor6> hopefully Tara will fill us in.
19:05:56 <ynpvisitor20> That was hilarious
19:06:50 <ynpvisitor90> I feel like F&M is trolling gazers this year
19:07:09 <ynpvisitor90> 10 day intervals. JK lol.
19:10:26 <Andrew> I was in the cabins and heard Tara screaming mortar and 2029 that's all I heard
19:12:05 <ynpvisitor90> So funny
19:26:52 <ynpvisitor52> oOF ie
19:26:58 <ynpvisitor52> OF
19:32:52 <Kevin L™> 2 small quakes near West in the last hour.
20:13:28 <Kevin L™> Daisy
20:13:31 <Kevin L™> ie
20:13:36 <ynpvisitor45> Yup
20:45:24 <ynpvisitor80> Lots of quakes, and looks like Kevin is getting thundered on.
20:46:45 <Michael> With F&M having a 2.5-day interval, it's easy to find signs of the coming apocalypse.
20:54:20 <ynpvisitor91> Beehive's Indicated reported at 2248ie
20:54:37 <ynpvisitor91> indicator.
20:54:42 <ynpvisitor55> Nice
20:55:02 <Eric> Tara is on a tear :-)
20:55:08 <Eric> F&M & Bee
20:55:16 <ynpvisitor52> Going to be a fuzzy BH
20:55:58 <Eric> Yes, the camera setup is really bad.
20:57:14 <ynpvisitor87> I sure hope they change the cam settings
20:57:40 <ynpvisitor87> This full moon will not be near as nice with this setting
20:57:49 <Eric> They really need to figure out what is sucking up all their bandwidth.
20:57:58 <ynpvisitor87> No chance of seeing meteors either
20:58:03 <ynpvisitor86> but it gives a better view when there is less light.
20:58:29 <Eric> Depending on how the low light is setup, the cam could shift into color mode on full moons.
20:58:32 <ynpvisitor87> We used to get color at night, wasn't that with the same bandwidth?
20:59:17 <Eric> The B&W is a setting in the camera that changes when a certain level of darkness is reached.
20:59:34 <Eric> Makes these non-full moon nights better
20:59:35 <Eric> OF
20:59:45 <ynpvisitor87> We did not have it before the lightning
20:59:57 <Eric> Yes, they didn't have it turned on for some reason.
20:59:59 <ynpvisitor87> Nights like this were color
21:00:13 <ynpvisitor102> OF
21:00:13 <ynpvisitor87> Plenty of moonlight out there
21:00:48 <ynpvisitor86> but it gelps on nights that are not this bright. So do you want to see more activity or only want to see it when the moon is bright?
21:01:29 <Eric> I will reserve judgement on the night thing...I just want them to fix the bandwidth issue.
21:01:54 <ynpvisitor87> Dave M did recaps. I'd vote for seeing the color
21:02:05 <ynpvisitor86> We had no drops after 0800 this morning.
21:02:18 <Eric> That is good
21:02:19 <ynpvisitor86> Yes I did recaps and this view makes that much easier.
21:02:52 <ynpvisitor87> Well then I say what you like best, yet I'll miss the color
21:02:55 <Eric> Yes, I would totally defer to Dave's judgement on the night thing...he has looked through sooooo much night footage :-)
21:03:30 <ynpvisitor86> The plan is to also fix the focus issue at night. At least they are going to try ...
21:04:02 <Eric> They can actually tweek the amount of like that triggers night vision...maybe after they get everything sorted, they can adjust that so bright nights stay color?
21:04:26 <Eric> light...not like
21:04:27 <ynpvisitor86> Good idea
21:04:50 <Eric> I am just happy we have a webcam :-P
21:04:57 <ynpvisitor52> :
21:05:09 <Michael> Cheers to that!
21:05:12 <ynpvisitor52> :)
21:07:31 <Eric> BH
21:07:35 <Eric> .
21:07:54 <Eric> I think Tara has a light out there
21:08:07 <ynpvisitor102> BH
21:09:47 <Eric> There are some really nice frames in the video...then it goes to crap again as it runs out of bandwidth :-(
21:11:11 <Eric> ohhh, color mode
21:11:14 <ynpvisitor86> I'm not seeing a bandwidth problem on the camop stream just really bad focus problems and over exposure problems
21:11:19 <Eric> B&W was much better
21:12:25 <Eric> Yes, I actually think that is part of the problem....can you tell what the bitrate is of the camop feed?
21:12:38 <Eric> I assume it's using the direct rtsp stream
21:13:39 <Eric> If the camop stream is taking up too many bits...not enough are left for the public feed and it has to use higher compression :-(
21:14:12 <ynpvisitor93> That was nice
21:14:15 <ynpvisitor86> no I can't. The cam op stream is secure. It is a seperate stream from the public stream with a very poor resolution.
21:16:04 <ynpvisitor86> That was nice -- have a good night
21:16:33 <Eric> Night all :-)
21:17:39 <Michael> Good night. I won't make it until Grand...
21:33:47 <Casey> Riverside ie
