03:44:15 <ynpvisitor49> OF ie
04:03:59 <Betty> Riverside
04:09:09 <ynpvisitor17> morning Betty, lc here
04:10:25 <ynpvisitor17> would think Riverside would put up more steam, 34.
04:11:58 <ynpvisitor69> nothing has been putting up much steam tonight. Must be dry.
04:12:28 <ynpvisitor17> must be
04:20:13 <Graham> morning
04:20:44 <Graham> certainly getting darker in the mornings
04:34:50 <ynpvisitor99> is GT working on mobile devices now?
04:35:15 <ynpvisitor17> morning Graham
04:35:53 <Graham> morning. its not working on mine
04:36:35 <ynpvisitor99> k thanks.
04:41:39 <Graham> SC
04:58:20 <Graham> daisy
05:06:38 <Graham> odd that GT diesnt have an OF prediction but the daisy one updated
06:21:49 <ynpvisitor30> 38 F and no steam
06:55:31 <Joe> GT will not let me edit my OF post to 'short', gives code: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 1366 Incorrect integer value: 'Invalid date' for column 'fld_Preplay' at row 1
06:57:52 <Joe> As Graham said earlier GT is not updating the OF prediction.
07:03:44 <ynpvisitor97> GT is a hot mess right now
09:16:25 <ynpvisitor97> Has Grand erupted?
09:16:40 <Betty> not yet
09:17:25 <ynpvisitor97> Ty. Over 7 hours!
09:17:36 <Graham> its waiting for my shift
09:17:57 <Betty> when do you start Graham?
09:18:18 <Graham> 1130
09:18:34 <ynpvisitor97> Waiting for Graham?
09:19:08 <Graham> dont know when Turban went tho
09:20:11 <Graham> its probably waiting for the OF window
09:20:29 <Graham> should get BH before dark too
09:21:11 <Betty> sure does. A bad attitude it learned from Kevin
09:26:24 <Betty> Lion seems to be ready too
09:26:29 <Graham> need OF to go now and be short
09:38:55 <Betty> Turban ie
09:40:38 <Graham> OF for sure
09:40:56 <ynpvisitor86> ha ha
09:42:04 <Graham> and its a short
09:42:13 <Betty> :-)
09:42:49 <Betty> I´m lagged a bit
09:43:01 <ynpvisitor86> Grand will go out of the window...
09:43:15 <Graham> if Joe deletes his entry it will show up as a short
09:43:16 <Joe> Graham, see if GT will let you add the short
09:43:49 <Graham> it lets you add it but not update it
09:44:05 <Graham> I put in a short
09:44:09 <JSJ> Yes - that is a problem I noticed yesterday. The GT folks need to be informed about that bug.
09:44:12 <Graham> but your entry was earlier
09:44:32 <Joe> I deeted my entry
09:44:40 <ynpvisitor86> how about the bug that the app does not work
09:45:13 <Joe> deeted=deleted:)
09:45:37 <ynpvisitor86> thought maybe you had some pesky bugs about
09:47:22 <ynpvisitor86> if this is what happens when they upgrade the server, maybe they should think twice
09:49:10 <Graham> I think the app not working and being unable to update OF are likely unrelated. since it talks about preplay i expect they are making changes to capture more info than they had before but probably need to change the update statement
09:49:14 <Graham> or something
09:49:20 <Joe> What works on one does not necessarily work on the other, without pulling out some hair.
09:50:00 <Graham> and its all volunteer work too so they deserve some relief
09:50:31 <ynpvisitor86> not unrelated
09:50:54 <Graham> ok, so you know what the problems are?
09:51:07 <Joe> The volunteers are doing a fine job.
09:52:00 <JSJ> Yes - the GT folks need to be applauded for their continued work. It's an invaluable site.
09:55:22 <Betty> Grand
09:55:25 <Graham> finally
09:58:08 <Graham> wind is not good for the cam
09:58:37 <Betty> getting seasick?
09:59:43 <Graham> yep. zooming out helps but still shaking a lot
10:00:24 <Graham> good think I dont have to zoom in on NG :)
10:00:45 <Betty> :-)
10:04:27 <Joe> 10+ min
10:06:18 <Graham> 1 and done
10:06:31 <Betty> People off bw
10:07:20 <Betty> don´t break SC!
10:09:07 <JSJ> Can't stand that. I'd love to see what Split Cone's vent looks like, but sheesh.
10:09:28 <Betty> true, JSJ
10:10:10 <JSJ> That's hominids for you - if there's something rare and beautiful, they'll ruin it every time.
10:10:55 <Betty> don´t want to imagine what they do on the hill or back basin
10:26:36 <ynpvisitor999> no in-basin times?
10:27:04 <Graham> the app isnt working
10:27:11 <Betty> evening DG. No in-basin times
10:27:21 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty, afternoon everyone
10:27:47 <Graham> the lousy weather is keeping the gazers away
10:29:40 <ynpvisitor999> OF predictions from GT don't exist either, apparently
10:31:06 <Graham> i think they have a database error in updating OF
10:31:42 <Graham> you cant edit OF eruptions which may be how they do the predictions
10:34:52 <Graham> that 7h41 was the longest Grand interval in the last 100
10:35:22 <Betty> Server update broke it
10:35:58 <Graham> Jake has more power than we knew
10:36:21 <Betty> hehe, seems so ;-)
10:36:48 <Graham> and its a 3 day weekend in US so the help desk wont be open until Tuesday
10:37:31 <Betty> Monday is free?
10:38:15 <Graham> its Columbus Day federal holiday. my company doesnt give us the day off tho
10:38:43 <Betty> bummer
10:39:06 <Joe> Those guys have done a great job thus far, they deserve a break.
10:39:14 <Betty> I´d love to have a free day on Monday, for it´s my birthday
10:39:31 <Graham> yeah ... worth celebrating
10:39:42 <Graham> maybe we will get Giantess to erupt then
10:40:05 <Betty> fingers crossed for it
10:40:28 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1240
10:40:54 <ynpvisitor999> needs more mentos and soda
10:41:16 <Betty> almost no preplay
10:41:24 <Joe> G... If its long I'll drelete mine
10:41:36 <ynpvisitor999> first preplay 1235 if I'm right
10:41:50 <Graham> there are two that will have to be deleted
10:42:08 <Graham> and it should be a long
10:42:34 <Joe> I see DG got one in there also
10:42:36 <Graham> not sure how many years its been since two shorts in a row
10:43:02 <Joe> My post is deleted
10:43:21 <ynpvisitor999> I think you could use the GT API to get the last time of two shorts in a row
10:43:23 <Betty> Indy
10:43:26 <Betty> .
10:43:26 <Betty> .
10:43:27 <Betty> .

10:43:41 <Joe> Yay BHI
10:44:11 <ynpvisitor999> yay!
10:44:35 <Graham> text sent
10:44:40 <ynpvisitor999> image is a bit pixelated, so it was hard to see it when you put it in chat
10:45:07 <Betty> double text ;-)
10:45:23 <Joe> I did not quit!
10:45:32 <ynpvisitor18> Better than no text or no Indicator
10:45:38 <ynpvisitor18> :)
10:46:24 <ynpvisitor999> it looks like the webdevs are doing something to include an extra row in the database, I think for preplay time
10:46:27 <Betty> Daisy ie
10:46:35 <ynpvisitor999> for OF that is
10:47:20 <Graham> yep. Grand updates ok and predictions for other geysers are working
10:47:31 <ynpvisitor999> for now, OF 1240, d=>4m40s, first(?) preplay 1235; prediction NPS 1249
10:47:45 <ynpvisitor999> d= 4m40s+*
10:48:15 <Graham> if you delete your time it will show my Long time
10:48:31 <ynpvisitor999> done
10:49:30 <JSJ> Beehive's Indicator
10:49:50 <Graham> thanks JSJ
10:49:53 <Graham> :)
10:50:48 <JSJ> Beehive
10:50:51 <Joe> BH
10:51:25 <ynpvisitor18> Very good start!
10:51:31 <Betty> wind-blown
10:51:35 <Graham> rainbows
10:51:44 <ynpvisitor999> nice
10:52:42 <ynpvisitor69> nice colors
10:53:53 <Betty> yep
10:55:12 <Betty> you can even see the rainbow on static
10:55:41 <ynpvisitor999> saved the image
10:56:07 <JSJ> First Beehive eruption I ever saw (evening, 30 May 2013) had a nice spraybow.
10:56:49 <Betty> I bet you were hooked by this one :-)
10:57:27 <JSJ> Funny, though - Beehive was mostly stuck in 2013 - lots of false Indicator eruptions then.
10:58:30 <Betty> that was a nice BH
10:58:42 <JSJ> Here's what i saw back then:
10:58:50 <Graham> i think i spent a lot of time in LGB that year
10:58:54 <JSJ> Saw it while unloading luggage at the Old Faithful Inn.
10:59:15 <Betty> great pic
10:59:20 <ynpvisitor999> that's a nice image you have there
10:59:23 <Joe> nice photo JSJ
10:59:40 <JSJ> If I am forced to choose, I do like the Lower Geyser Basin better. I spent most of my time there.
11:00:26 <Graham> that was the Morning year so I was down there for every Ftn/Morning chance
11:00:28 <ynpvisitor18> Very cool image
11:00:58 <JSJ> Yep - that was before I was cognizant of GT. I saw two Fountain-Morning duals that summer, but only by accident.
11:01:21 <JSJ> If I'd known, I would have spent much more time at the Fountain overlook platform.
11:01:32 <Graham> and i never saw a dual ... haha. did get solos and one Trifecta
11:02:11 <JSJ> Didn't see a Morning solo - they're supposedly way more spectacular. Micah Kipple has a nice video of one that year.
11:02:14 <Graham> yep, hard to know with everything else to see too
11:02:18 <ynpvisitor999> looks like Firefox now automatically converts raw JSON text to a much better readable format :)
11:02:48 <Betty> I crashed into a trifecta...after spinning some rounds at the parking lot :-p
11:03:34 <Graham> i hope no vehicles or people were damaged in the procewss
11:03:49 <Betty> hahaha, no
11:04:23 <Graham> i saw the last one at night, fun as the flashlights ran out one by one
11:05:44 <Graham> 3h of Ftn was great
11:07:23 <ynpvisitor18> Finally read the link Pat posted about Fluffy’s plumbing. Research is being partly funded by the King Abdullah University of Science. Didn’t expect that. I wonder if there are any Saudi gazers?
11:50:40 <Betty> Aurum
12:00:46 <Graham> glad you caught it, i was distratyced
12:00:55 <Graham> yeah whatever
12:01:24 <Graham> was replaying the NG eruptions on the 40 times recording
12:26:30 <ynpvisitor999> OF might pull a long interval
12:27:57 <Graham> 1h58m is the longest in the last 100
12:28:20 <Graham> thanks to all the webcam reporters we have them all logged, no double intervals in the last 100
12:28:28 <ynpvisitor999> good to know
12:29:09 <Graham> of course with OF the last 100 only take us back to 1 Oct
12:30:29 <ynpvisitor999> preplay 1428-29 would normally lead to an eruption
12:36:10 <ynpvisitor999> OF is now completely out of NPS' window
12:37:27 <Graham> and out of the GT window too :)
12:38:11 <Graham> maybe we can get to 2h
12:38:25 <Graham> tied the longest interval in the last 100
12:38:29 <Graham> already
12:39:21 <Graham> 1h59
12:39:44 <ynpvisitor999> OF really doesn't want to erupt
12:40:18 <Graham> 2h
12:40:24 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1440
12:40:45 <ynpvisitor999> tall considered the wind speed
12:42:10 <Graham> and a short
12:42:58 <ynpvisitor999> 1m47s if I timed it correctly
12:43:04 <Graham> "we waited all that time for that?"
12:43:25 <ynpvisitor999> most people start to leave after ~2m anyway
12:43:59 <Kevin L™> I am on Chrome and it is on delay. I can't remember how to enable Flash. Anyone know?
12:44:37 <ynpvisitor999> under 'help and important links' you can find a link to the image
12:47:04 <Kevin L™> Thanks DG, got it.
12:47:25 <ynpvisitor999> no problem
12:58:44 <Graham> Lion is taking a long time to start up
12:59:06 <Graham> last series wasnt long per GT
12:59:10 <Kevin L™> Sort of like the Nationals.
12:59:41 <ynpvisitor999> could it be that we missed a series?
13:00:54 <ynpvisitor999> or that the series continued, but wasn't visible due to fog/steam/preciptation?
13:01:42 <Kevin L™> Anything is possible
13:02:32 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
13:04:13 <ynpvisitor999> relatively short interval
13:05:55 <Graham> odd given how much wind there is
13:06:22 <ynpvisitor999> must've started when there was little wind there
13:07:10 <Graham> since we had a lot of OF and SPrinkler posted I would think Lion didnt erupt
13:07:41 <ynpvisitor999> realised that just after I posted the message
13:07:49 <Graham> maybe its a bit sheltered and wind is just bad for the cam?
13:12:41 <ynpvisitor999> SC ns
13:13:05 <ynpvisitor999> or ie
13:29:31 <ynpvisitor39> +\
13:44:26 <Graham> OF
14:19:47 <ynpvisitor999> that's great... white x
14:20:06 <Kevin L™> Guess Halloween is almost here. They are putting Christmas things up at the store.
14:20:45 <Kevin L™> Why did you break it DG
14:21:39 <ynpvisitor999> I wasn't aware that looking up an article about sulfuric acid could break the webcam
14:22:39 <Graham> you broke the internet?
14:22:56 <Betty> he deleted it
14:23:04 <ynpvisitor999> my internet is fine
14:23:15 <Graham> i am sure its backed up nightly
14:23:39 <ynpvisitor999> and it's back
14:24:25 <Graham> i had lost the cam control as well but its back now too
14:45:08 <Graham> stepping away for a few minutes - that should get Lion going
14:53:49 <Graham> guess i didnt miss much
14:56:29 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
14:59:57 <Betty> SC ie
15:19:59 <ynpvisitor86> looking hot at Grand
15:20:10 <ynpvisitor86> tonight is the last night at the Inn
15:21:04 <ynpvisitor86> i see it is a bit early for Grand
15:21:06 <ynpvisitor86> OF
15:21:06 <Kevin L™> Winter is approaching
15:27:14 <Kevin L™> What is wrong with the Nationals Graham?
15:27:38 <Graham> they are my team, so dont do well in playoffs
15:28:31 <Kevin L™> Now THAT I can relate to! Our Hockey team won their first game even though we couldn't see it.
15:28:47 <Graham> good for LV, you needed that
15:31:05 <Graham> roads will all be closed in a month, 6 Dec
15:31:27 <Kevin L™> For sure. We are doing well though if we could keep the nosy press away. We buried my friends kid today. There were probably between 3000 and 4000 people there. Standing room only.
15:32:11 <Graham> sad day but glad theres good community support
15:33:31 <Kevin L™> Not only community, the whole Nation. His Dad mentioned how much the caring of people he never knew meant to him and comforted him. This is one fine country.
15:34:25 <Graham> good to hear it comforted him. probably overwhelming too
15:36:56 <Kevin L™> It was. They have a VERY large family and they are mega strong, but the kind words and thoughts and prayers really made a difference. A Marine and a nurse picked him up and took him to cover while bullets were flying. The did their best to stabilize him and drove him to the trauma center in their own vehicle.
15:39:30 <Graham> is Lion dormant?
15:44:35 <Kevin L™> It had a really long interval a few days back too.
15:46:17 <Kevin L™> Meteor shower tonight.
15:48:03 <Kevin L™> This is what my kid is racing tonight:
15:48:39 <Graham> daisy
15:48:55 <Kevin L™> At least it is showing.
15:53:12 <Graham> you going to watch Kevin? Looks like fun
15:54:51 <Graham> Turban?
15:54:55 <Kevin L™> Yep. Going out with my Wife. It is a two wheeled car race. The back tires are skid plates made of steel. He said that in practice tonight he spun out about 40 times.
15:55:24 <Graham> haha hope he doesnt do it that many times tonight
15:56:07 <Kevin L™> If he does there will be a few dents in his car. There are about 15 people racing them now.
15:56:09 <Graham> looks like the banking is a challenge
15:56:21 <Kevin L™> That is what he said.
15:56:37 <Graham> wow that probably gets crowded as they slide around
15:56:44 <Kevin L™> With no back tires it is steeper than it looks.
15:57:57 <Kevin L™> It if a fun cheap way for someone to do a race. It cost about $2000 for a car and you don't get up enough speed to kill them.
16:00:46 <Kevin L™> BTW this is the track Kurt & Kyle Busch used to race on when they were kids.
16:08:41 <Graham> so NASCAR next year?
16:09:08 <Kevin L™> Not unless he finds a good sponsor!
16:09:47 <Kevin L™> I am betting the car comes back with a few dents.
16:10:49 <Graham> yep, looks like thats part of the admission price
16:12:50 <Graham> Grand
16:20:30 <Graham> could get 2
16:20:56 <Graham> yep
16:28:34 <Kevin L™> Time to go watch people beat up my kid. See you tomorrow.
16:28:53 <ynpvisitor2> Good luck.
16:29:26 <Graham> have fun
16:49:23 <Graham> of
16:49:26 <Graham> odd color sky
16:50:42 <ynpvisitor55> What a beautiful picture
17:15:15 <ynpvisitor2> Riverside ie
17:15:18 <Graham> riverside
17:21:20 <Graham> godnight, maybe Lion will erupt sometime
