02:52:51 <Art> Zzzzzzz
02:55:08 <ynpvisitor4> Several gazers out there it looks like. That's commitment...
02:55:49 <ynpvisitor4> voom
03:01:42 <Joe> Glad OF waited
03:18:06 <Art>
04:04:07 <Joe-> Art, nice photo
04:40:09 <Joe> OF
04:51:32 <Joe> Lion
05:26:27 <Joe> Depression nice catch camop
05:45:35 <Dave from B> Morning Joe and numbers
05:46:09 <Joe> Hi [Dave]
05:46:44 <Joe> do bold type on chat
05:51:49 <Dave from B> I see we had a BH GRand collision this morning
05:55:42 <Joe> Yes, in basin gazers had quite a dilemma.
05:56:27 <Dave from B> At least everyoner wasn't still in bed
05:59:34 <Joe> B**2 was with '11 gazers', looks as if Graham was at Grand
05:59:52 <Joe> Lion
06:04:05 <Joe> Of waited until BHwas almost done
06:15:18 <Jimbo Cf> I wish they all could be Californium
06:18:33 <Joe> [b]OF[/b]
06:20:14 <ynpvisitor...> :) Jimbo
06:21:21 <Dave from B> haha the Beach Boys reference
06:21:43 <Dave from B> Now I have a song stuck in my head
06:21:59 <Jimbo Cf> Yeah, I was thinking what if the Beach Boys had gone to CalTech instead of UC Santa Cruz
06:22:23 <ynpvisitor...> Alexa play "California Girls"
06:22:34 <Dave from B> :D
06:27:23 <ynpvisitor...> CalTec now #3. This is a very bad thing. Canary in the coal mine for US education :(
06:28:23 <Eric> Morning
06:29:03 <ynpvisitor...> Eric I am still loving the dashboard!
06:30:13 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
06:30:27 <Jimbo Cf> #3 behind who else? MIT?
06:30:31 <Dave from B> How is your smoky haze today?
06:30:33 <Joe> The dashboard is great
06:31:21 <ynpvisitor...> Oxford and Cambridge. It has been #1 for ages
06:31:41 <Jimbo Cf> Ah, OK
06:33:03 <Eric> haze seems better today, less ash. Maybe we are getting the wind direction shift they expected already.
06:34:25 <Kent> Wolfies reported a dusting of snow on Bozeman Pass yesterday.
06:35:32 <Kent> Dome
06:35:59 <Joe> Riverside
06:37:19 <Kent> Morning everyone.
06:40:27 <Joe> [b]Kevin[/b] is in the house
06:42:21 <ynpvisitor33> Snow? really?
06:42:50 <Dave from B> We did get to 45 degrees early Tuesday morning.
06:43:53 <Dave from B> Warm temps start returning Thursday. highs in upper 80s to lower 90's...about 7-12 degrees above normal
06:44:37 <Dave from B> The big 0% chance of precip for next 10 days. I'm not sure when we had rain last.
06:44:44 <ynpvisitor...> Snow was mentioned in the Tuesday posting on "Yellowstone Reports" the wolfie bible.
06:44:56 <ynpvisitor33> I would believe frost but not snow
06:45:45 <Eric> 35 right now, assume UGB was below freezing last night
06:47:00 <ynpvisitor...> Don't shoot the messenger :) Still in the 90°s down here.
06:54:56 <Kevin L™> I was happy because it almost made it below 80° last night!
06:59:27 <Kevin L™> Idaho is still shaking and now Lincoln MT is joining in.
07:00:10 <Dave from B> Lincoln had some quakes earlier in the year
07:00:34 <Kevin L™> They woke up again.
07:02:03 <Joe> Lion
07:21:02 <Eric> I wonder if they have done any long term studies on any leaching of the chemicals from this rubber compound they are putting down for paths now.
07:21:39 <Eric> I assume this is a top down project as the tire maker is on the board of the foundation.
07:22:59 <Kevin L™> I know they have used rubberized asphalt since the 70's.
07:27:07 <Joe> Daisy
07:27:22 <Joe> Daisy
07:28:47 <Kevin L™> Give me your answer do....
07:29:51 <Jimbo Cf> You know you're a child of the 60s when you hear that and think of HAL
07:30:14 <Jimbo Cf> Or (as happened to me two days ago) you hear the Blue Danube waltz and visualize a moon landing
07:32:17 <Kevin L™> :)
07:34:16 <Kevin L™> I still remember my Grandpa cussing out the networks because they all had the moon landing on and he could not get a ball game on any station.
07:35:15 <Jimbo Cf> It was on all three channels!
07:36:17 <Kevin L™> Yep. Don't think he realized that all the ball players were watching it too.
07:36:42 <Joe> I was young and working at the Cape at that time
07:37:09 <Joe> Young no more.:(
07:37:50 <Kevin L™> That would have been fun. Amazing what they did with the computers they had in those days.
07:39:03 <Joe> Yes when I think back at the computers we had, it is very scaery.
07:39:45 <Joe> scary*
07:42:38 <Jimbo Cf> I saw John Glenn's circular slide rule on a trip to Cleveland recently
07:43:08 <Kevin L™> I think a lot of those "computers" were yellow and said Pickett on them.
07:50:55 <Kevin L™> Oops, pulled the wrong plug
07:54:27 <Jimbo Cf> Man, do you know how much antique slide rules go for now?
07:56:41 <Joe> I remember the key punch operators furiously typing the latest programs in and rushing the punch cards to the programmers for verification, it was a crazy time.
07:56:46 <Joe> OF
07:59:59 <Kevin L™> I have a few slide rues. I always liked the Picketts best.
08:00:46 <Kevin L™> I have a Model 14 which is the one with scales for artillery fire
08:04:25 <Kevin L™> My streaming died. Anyone else?
08:04:30 <ynpvisitor100> Doing heat transfer corelation with fractional powers on a slide rule was always "fun".
08:05:07 <Kevin L™> Back now.
08:05:11 <ynpvisitor3.14> Was down for a minute there with a warning, but I see it again, but still has a message across.
08:05:31 <Kevin L™> Very choppy though.
08:05:57 <ynpvisitor3.14> bad stop motion animation
08:07:00 <Eric> choppy here
08:08:12 <Kevin L™> Bet you used an RPN calculator later on 100.
08:11:20 <ynpvisitor100> No, waited for the TI SR 50.
08:11:50 <Eric> I just pulled out my HP yesterday :-)
08:12:24 <Eric> 48G
08:12:36 <Eric> 32k Ram!!!
08:13:03 <Eric> stream dead
08:13:06 <Kevin L™> I had a TI-59. Loved the chips it had for survey data. I liked the HP for manual stuff and still like them the best. I even have one for the cuter.
08:13:30 <Kevin L™> That was a great unit Eric.
08:14:14 <Kevin L™> I think my keyboard missed a few letters.
08:14:21 <Eric> 49 keys, all with dual functions.
08:14:26 <Kevin L™> computer
08:15:34 <Kevin L™> Not a fancy one, but it does the minor stuff:
08:18:32 <Kevin L™> Here is a train car for you Eric. An Oregon Railroad and it is made in Oregon! Wish I would have bought a few when they were new.
08:20:52 <Eric> wow...crazy
08:21:15 <Eric> video back
08:22:33 <Eric> With the short Grand intervals, we could have one in 8 minutes
08:27:31 <Kevin L™> Here is a company that did a bunch of the Oregon shortline boxcars. Priced a bit better:
08:29:40 <Eric> Grand please....
08:31:01 <Eric> Probably another turban :-(
08:31:40 <Dave from B> wow 533 Grand interval last evening
08:31:48 <Kevin L™> Timing is right.
08:32:07 <Dave from B> 1010 Turban was a D0
08:32:26 <Dave from B> Grand will be at 1049
08:33:00 <Kevin L™> How did Becca do in the tryouts?
08:33:02 <Ryan> Oh yeah - I say 1048
08:33:32 <Dave from B> They cancelled tryouts due to smoke
08:33:51 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a good idea.
08:33:55 <Eric> Good Call
08:34:22 <Eric> that looks bigger than turban
08:35:01 <Dave from B> Still on 30 second delay here
08:36:48 <Dave from B> That looks like Lion to me, Eric:)
08:37:01 <Dave from B> Where did it go?
08:37:49 <Eric> Guess it was just the cold temps causing lots of steam
08:38:57 <Dave from B> Why people start sitting 45 minutes after last OF is beyone me
08:39:25 <Eric> They are tired and it's a beautiful place to sit and watch the world go by :-)
08:39:28 <Dave from B> Heaven forbid if they actually walked around somewhere else for a few minutes
08:39:51 <Dave from B> Who relaxes on vacation?
08:39:57 <Eric> My wife!
08:40:41 <Eric> We found that out after we were married...I always took exploration vacations when growing up, she always took relaxing ones.
08:41:31 <Don from PA> Dave, They are Old Faithful lovers and do not care about the other things. Like my wife.
08:43:45 <Dave from B> Eric, friends usually go on vacation with us once and then they have no interest to go again.
08:44:13 <Dave from B> When we do Disney, we are at the park 45 minutes before opening and stay until closing even if that means a 16 hour day
08:44:28 <Eric> I love going going going on vacation, but I have learned to book a couple days of downtime at the end :-)
08:44:28 <Dave from B> And, we enjoy every minute
08:44:43 <Dave from B> Eric, that is good advice
08:45:46 <Dave from B> I have started to slow do with age however
08:46:30 <Ryan> I think enough people wander about. :p
08:47:17 <Eric> Setup a big parking lot at the entrance and loan people virtual goggles :-P
08:47:35 <Eric> Lion
08:51:20 <Kevin L™> Boom
08:53:01 <ynpvisitor69> So how did Soccer try outs go?
08:55:50 <Dave from B> 69, cancelled do to falling ash
08:55:55 <Dave from B> due*
08:56:23 <Dave from B> picked the worng minute
08:56:43 <Eric> Yep, prediction fail :-)
08:57:09 <Dave from B> Yep...just needed to add plus or minute 1 minute
08:57:16 <Eric> Grand seems to fall on the 20m mark quite often now.
08:57:42 <Eric> last year it was really regular at the 17m mark
08:58:21 <Jimbo Cf> 8 minutes
08:58:26 <Dave from B> Yep...Turban erupting a lot less this year
08:59:21 <Eric> SC attempting to interfere with viewing :-)
09:00:32 <Jimbo Cf> 10 minutes. Almost seemed like a pause and then a large burst, but I could be projecting
09:01:01 <Eric> So much steam is was hard to tell, but it did look large
09:01:44 <Kevin L™> T1C
09:01:49 <Jimbo Cf> Darn
09:02:25 <Jimbo Cf> Grand did have a 2-burst yesterday
09:02:59 <Eric> F&M?
09:03:17 <Eric> what is that steam???
09:04:06 <Dave from B> Could be Artemesia
09:04:14 <Eric> ohh, true
09:04:48 <Eric> There were event cyles this morning
09:04:52 <Dave from B> 1008 F&M cycle should be over
09:05:15 <Dave from B> unleess there were some long river pauses
09:05:19 <Ryan> Dome
09:05:34 <Eric> That is pretty large steam to come over those trees.
09:30:55 <Dave from B> F&M 1102 nice call Eric
09:31:25 <Ryan> Damn!
09:31:29 <Dave from B> Major interval change
09:31:30 <ynpvisitor69> Dis Graham miss it
09:31:46 <Eric> sure looked like it to me :-)
09:31:49 <Dave from B> Not sure
09:35:18 <Eric> Not to surprising, we have had 4.5 day and 2.5 day intervals this summer. Even if 9 day seem to be the average.
09:35:45 <Dave from B> Yep. it can happen....wish this would become the norm
09:36:01 <Eric> For sure :-)
09:36:42 <Eric> Both times after short intervals we then moved up to 9.5d intervals
09:37:21 <Eric> Not that it means anything moving forward :-P
09:37:51 <Dave from B> I would imagine many people missed it but just guessing
09:38:41 <Jimbo Cf> I'm sure glad there are videos of F&M!
09:41:05 <Ryan> Not quite like being there.
09:41:25 <Ryan> after seeing it the videos just make me sick with envy haha
09:42:21 <Dave from B> Yep....vent chaos of F&M best in person
09:43:21 <Eric> That HD video David S posted was pretty amazing to get a feel for it though.
09:43:33 <Eric> Great capture of the start
09:43:34 <Jimbo Cf> I know it's not like being there - but when you can't be there, it at least lets you know what it looks like.
09:43:37 <Ryan> You just cant capture the maelstrom of water, rock, steam, and people. Thats the best way to describe it: a vertical maelstrom.
09:43:50 <Jimbo Cf> Back in the 70s-90s, all I could do was READ about F&M!
09:44:07 <Dave from B> Although that Aug 22 Youtube of the eruption is one of the better I have seen
09:44:09 <Ryan> I like the videos with people yelling. Especially when the videos are hand held and the person is jumping :p
09:44:11 <Eric> Actually, I did miss the people part of it...would be great if the crowd was captured too :-)
09:44:32 <Jimbo Cf> I've seen a couple of good ones showing people going nuts
09:44:44 <Eric> 360 video needed!
09:44:48 <ynpvisitor105> missed again during this years visit - disappointed - but never a bad day in yellowstone
09:44:50 <Ryan> You need a video of the crowd during the entire event cycle leading up to it to see the body language in the last few minutes.
09:45:32 <Dave from B> Cue Heinz commercial....."Anticipation"
09:45:42 <Ryan> There are some great ones of Giant. But not ones of F&M, and I think the experience there is a lot more intimate.
09:48:13 <Dave from B> I know many like geyser showers but giant is more like getting doused with a big wave
09:49:03 <Ryan> Yeah, I have heard Giant is beyond chaos. Its almost unbelievable.
09:53:33 <Dave from B> Both of my giants were before I knew any gazers...can't wait to share one with gazers. cage gets drenched
09:54:41 <Ryan> All of my Giants were.... wait. :(
09:55:06 <Dave from B> Ryan, you will get will become active again
09:55:24 <Dave from B> Ryan, you ready to graduate and move on from college life?
09:55:30 <Ryan> Thanks, but I need to get back first. Thats harder than actually see one.
09:55:41 <Ryan> Yes, in May. The hope is the TN area
09:55:42 <Ryan> Daisy
09:55:46 <Ryan> 1155ns
09:56:58 <Art> Well 1 for 2 F&M this trip. Oops
09:57:05 <Dave from B> I've talked Trump into closing all caves so that you have the freedom to return to YNP
09:57:10 <Eric> ohhh bummer
09:57:18 <Dave from B> Sorry, Art, that was a much shorter interval
09:57:36 <Art> More surprised than upset
09:57:46 <Jimbo Cf> After seeing the total eclipse, Giant's very high on my do-it-if-possible list
09:57:56 <Art> No event cycles at all until this morning
09:58:07 <Eric> There was one at 10
09:58:12 <Art> Seemed like a great day to do something else
09:58:19 <Eric> ahhh
09:58:29 <Ryan> Dunno, Dave, those caves have put me in groups smaller than those who have seen Steamboat; or Excelsior. Hard to compete with that ;)
09:58:31 <Art> Well that was "the" event cycle
09:58:45 <Ryan> How *was* the EC, Art?
10:00:36 <Art> Early bee and private great Fountain were nice though
10:01:05 <Dave from B> Nice...Art, have you been to the new Grand Prismatic overlook yet
10:01:36 <Art> Not yet. Was real smokey last couple days
10:03:20 <Dave from B> I'm just curious what people think. I haven't been there yet put FB pics seem like it is too low
10:05:38 <Art> New Canyon dining area has been real nice. Decent food
10:05:42 <ynpvisitor99> I was there about three weeks ago and I thought the view was spectacular. It was VERY crowded though-almost had to fight your way to the edge to look over. Both parking lots were overflowing and cars were parked a quarter mile on the side of the road.
10:06:01 <Art> They're ripping up the old road a bit in front of the inn
10:06:15 <Art> Crowds are starting to lighten up
10:07:36 <Dave from B> Thanks 99
10:08:14 <Dave from B> Art, word is they are replacing bw towards Chinese Spring with new material
10:12:37 <Art> Surprised everyone including rangers
10:12:53 <Art> They're restriping all the roads
10:13:03 <Art> Also some chip seal work
10:13:33 <Dave from B> Nice to know...thanks, Art
10:16:35 <Art> Concessions are cutting back hours and options due to huge staffing problems
10:18:42 <Art> Xanterra is paying double overtime to anyone who stays
10:19:27 <Dave from B> Kevin, maybe double overtime will pull you out of retirement?:)
10:21:01 <Kevin L™> Nope.
10:29:50 <Dave from B> Man, you're a tough negotiator
10:31:28 <Kevin L™> By the time they ding me in taxes it isn't worth it.
11:08:31 <ynpvisitor18> OF
11:31:08 <Dave from B> ..
11:31:20 <Dave from B> Hi, Don
11:36:40 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon everyone
11:37:19 <ynpvisitor999> quite the red areas on the seismo
11:37:37 <Joe> Hi DGInc
11:37:45 <ynpvisitor999> hi Joe
11:41:41 <Dave from B> Yep...Soda Spings Idaho having a few quakes today
11:41:58 <ynpvisitor999> just found out that one of the folders in System32 is called 'Hydrogen'. I think Jimbo would like it there if he chose an element that would form a chemical connection with hydrogen
12:06:14 <Jimbo Cf> 999, is that volatile memory?
12:09:06 <ynpvisitor999> no, in that folder are more folders that are, judging by name, responsible for some animations or so
12:10:51 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
12:13:41 <ynpvisitor999> anyway, I'm off for today
12:14:16 <Dave from B> seeya, DGInc
12:15:38 <ynpvisitor87> how nice of F & M to release the basin gazers early this time.
12:33:36 <Betty> hi all
12:33:53 <Kevin L™> Hi
12:34:19 <Betty> hi Kevin
12:38:38 <Dave from B> Good late evening Betty
12:38:57 <Betty> hi Dave
12:39:45 <Kevin L™> Did you have any internet issues today Betty?
12:39:46 <ynpvisitor112> Betty Broke F&M. It went right after Grand today. Lots of geazers missed it I think.
12:43:44 <Betty> no issues
12:44:13 <Betty> OF
12:45:09 <Eric> Hi Betty
12:45:11 <Kevin L™> There was an X-lass Solar Flare that caused radio problems in Africa and Europe today.
12:45:39 <Eric> supposed to create some nice northern lights too I believe
12:46:21 <Betty> hi Eric.
12:46:36 <Betty> I was not much online today
12:50:53 <Betty> Oblong?
12:57:38 <Betty> Plate or Slot?
12:59:12 <Betty> seems to be too far right to be Plate
13:29:50 <ynpvisitor14> aurum
13:30:10 <Jimbo Cf> yay
13:30:19 <Joe> Nice
13:30:26 <Eric> bummer, missed it
13:31:53 <Dave from B> Everyone get a chance to read the last Sput; Pat's first edition?
13:32:06 <Ryan> yes, well done
13:32:30 <ynpvisitor14> it was her second
13:32:40 <Dave from B> I liked it. Dunn's did a good job but nice to see a change every decade or so.
13:32:48 <Dave from B> oops...time flies:)
13:33:12 <Dave from B> It was nice to see results of GOSA survey
13:35:47 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
13:36:05 <Dave from B> Nite Betty
14:48:55 <Eric> Grand in 4 minutes maybe?
14:52:38 <ynpvisitor35> Definite maybe
14:52:58 <Eric> Nice
14:55:48 <Eric> So I would expect the next one at 22:37 :-)
15:00:35 <Eric> 8m
15:02:37 <Eric> dead in under 10 minutes with single blast :-(
15:50:23 <ynpvisitor3> I see Kitt got to see a fox. 3times
16:05:40 <ynpvisitor3> OK, now we can have a BH
16:41:22 <ynpvisitor3> Graham should go put some mentos in Aurum for Kevin.
16:42:03 <Kevin L™> Somebody did while I was out.
16:42:53 <ynpvisitor3> I did not see it on GT when I checked.
16:43:22 <Kevin L™> It just knows when I leave.
16:43:57 <Kevin L™> At least this one had less than a 24h interval.
16:45:20 <ynpvisitor3> It should be Daisy time
16:54:04 <Kevin L™> It is Daisy time now
16:54:52 <ynpvisitor3> I think it is getting taller. The trees are surely not getting shorter.
16:57:23 <ynpvisitor3> lc
17:07:15 <Kevin L™> Close to cone 1850
17:09:21 <ynpvisitor3> So we have anywhere from 5 minutes to over an hour for BH.
17:11:11 <ynpvisitor3> I am going to do dinner, so enjoy an early BH!
17:11:31 <Kevin L™> Have fun
17:29:08 <ynpvisitor14> bhi
17:29:08 <ynpvisitor14> .
17:29:09 <ynpvisitor14> .
17:29:09 <ynpvisitor14> .
17:29:16 <Kevin L™> Indy
17:29:37 <Kevin L™> Do we need a text sent?
17:29:44 <ynpvisitor14> text sent
17:29:53 <Kevin L™> nope!
17:29:59 <ynpvisitor3> Sure, before LC quits.
17:31:25 <ynpvisitor6> text received
17:31:33 <ynpvisitor6> And this one didn't wake me up
17:32:03 <ynpvisitor6> :)
17:33:02 <ynpvisitor6> kc, haven't seen you in a long time
17:33:24 <Kevin L™> Dave woke up!
17:33:25 <ynpvisitor14> I wish I knew what they are seeing at Close-to-cone. Is it actually erupting or are they just seeing bubbling.
17:33:26 <Dave from B> nice to see you're not working
17:33:52 <Dave from B> When I was there, it was bubbling
17:34:13 <ynpvisitor3> Must not be any games to wtch
17:34:18 <kcmule> work is done for now, it's football time
17:34:25 <ynpvisitor14> I don't think I would record bubbling as eruption. Probably a note.

17:43:13 <Dave from B> I remember you telling me that before. Did he eat you out of hjouse and home?:)
17:43:36 <Dave from B> now my laptop is making mistakes
17:44:19 <Kevin L™> Yes he did! He was huge. The first time he came by one of my roomies came in and told me we didn't have enough food!

19:17:06 <kcmule> daisy ie
20:15:13 <ynpvisitor86> what is white sand?
20:16:35 <ynpvisitor14> it was a joke.
20:22:46 <ynpvisitor86> ? but it is in GT so it must be true :P
20:28:21 <Kevin L™> We are back to color
20:52:08 <Kevin L™> Castle ie
21:39:30 <ynpvisitor112> If you look up White Sand on GT, the entries listed explain where it is located.
21:39:41 <ynpvisitor112> New in 2013
21:40:40 <ynpvisitor86> it looks like an error and changed to White Dome now
21:40:53 <ynpvisitor86> where is it?
21:41:20 <ynpvisitor112> It's in Black Sand basin
21:41:45 <ynpvisitor112> The posts all list its location
21:42:18 <ynpvisitor86> neat, thanks. But that person couldn't be at White Dome and BSB, so guess it was a typo
21:42:28 <ynpvisitor112> Just type in White Sand Spring in GT search field
21:42:54 <ynpvisitor112> Yes , typo for this time.
21:43:31 <ynpvisitor86> but fun to learn something new. :)
21:43:35 <ynpvisitor112> Or a wrong pick from the geyser list
21:44:05 <ynpvisitor112> Yes, I am glad the posts said where it was
