00:35:51 <ynpvisitor999> WE GOT E TIMES!
00:36:00 <ynpvisitor999> YAY!
00:37:34 <ynpvisitor999> and man, there are a lot of Echinuses. It has been erupting quite regularly for more than a week right now
00:42:22 <ynpvisitor999> all data points till about 1200 MST on 27 Oct. 2017 are in
01:06:54 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy ie
03:16:14 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder how long it takes for GT to render the temperature graphs of the loggers
05:01:17 <ynpvisitor999> Lion trying to go
05:01:48 <ynpvisitor999> BH appears to not have gone overnight
05:01:54 <ynpvisitor92> think indy is ie
05:02:37 <ynpvisitor999> maybe, still a bit too pixelated to be sure
05:02:38 <ynpvisitor92> afternoon DG
05:02:53 <ynpvisitor999> morning 92 (Joe?)
05:02:53 <ynpvisitor92> yeah, a camop
05:03:05 <Betty> no
05:03:09 <ynpvisitor999> oh... lol
05:03:15 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon Betty
05:03:31 <Betty> :-)
05:04:08 <Betty> it looked like indy for a second
05:04:22 <ynpvisitor999> it did
05:04:28 <Betty> sure something splashing there
05:04:34 <ynpvisitor999> that's for sure
05:05:26 <Betty> already color, nice
05:06:51 <ynpvisitor999> in the next few days there hopefully is color at night, too, as moon illumination is nearing 100%
05:07:08 <Betty> yep
05:07:25 <ynpvisitor999> by the way, this is what the Echinus logger looks like:
05:07:30 <Betty> looks a lot like indy now
05:08:03 <Betty> cool. I like it. hope it stays active now
05:08:14 <ynpvisitor999> I hope so too :)
05:10:22 <Betty> OF is ready too
05:10:36 <ynpvisitor999> nice
05:11:00 <ynpvisitor999> looks like the wind direction is good, which means it's likely I'll be able to time it
05:13:29 <Betty> BH looks happy
05:14:02 <Betty> but no indy
05:14:27 <ynpvisitor999> BH might even go for an Indy-less eruption start
05:15:51 <Betty> seems static works again
05:15:57 <ynpvisitor999> morning Dave
05:16:00 <Betty> morning Dave from B
05:16:11 <ynpvisitor999> hadn't noticed it working again yet
05:16:38 <Dave from B> Hi Betty, 999
05:16:38 <Betty> well it is dark and not showing OF ie in bright daylight
05:17:42 <Betty> possible BH keeps me away from painting my living room ceiling :p
05:18:16 <Betty> BH splash
05:18:17 <ynpvisitor999> priorities!
05:18:32 <Betty> :thumbsup:
05:19:56 <ynpvisitor999> hmm... odd that the YHL seismo shows a red area @ 0330 MDT, while no earthquake happened according to the latest earthqueakes map from the USGS
05:21:25 <Betty> OF
05:21:33 <ynpvisitor999> OF 0721
05:21:48 <Betty> nice and fluffy
05:22:02 <ynpvisitor999> nice show
05:22:48 <Betty> this one looks like pure snow
05:23:05 <ynpvisitor999> 16F, that's probably why
05:23:27 <ynpvisitor999> -9C, that is
05:23:37 <Betty> brrr
05:24:05 <ynpvisitor999> no wonder that BH didn't want to erupt - way too cold for that
05:24:21 <ynpvisitor999> doesn't want, rather
05:26:24 <Dave from B> 26F in Billings
05:26:38 <ynpvisitor999> I think a short long interval is likely for the next OF, as I could not see water after 3m33s
05:27:00 <Betty> *sigh* paint is waiting. ding for everything ;-)
05:27:45 <ynpvisitor999> well, if you hear six dings from me spaced apart about 1 second, then it's likely Indy or BH is going :)
05:29:21 <ynpvisitor999> that must've been a big splash or surge from BH
05:30:20 <ynpvisitor999> Oblong ie?
05:35:38 <ynpvisitor72> BH is steamy
05:36:02 <ynpvisitor999> it is, but likely didn't went overnight
05:36:04 <Ryan> Guess BH is going long this morning.
05:36:08 <ynpvisitor999> morning Ryan
05:36:54 <Ryan> Morning. Geez, its really happy today!
05:38:46 <Dave from B> Ryan, I see your day did not get off to a good start...sorry
05:39:16 <Ryan> Thanks, Dave. It's ridiculous...
05:39:16 <Betty> I thought you were BH, but it´s "only" you, Ryan :-) Morning
05:39:39 <Betty> uhm, what happened??
05:39:46 <Betty> lol
05:39:48 <Beehive> I need coffee!
05:39:57 <Beehive> Hot, preferably...
05:40:02 <Betty> I sure can relate
05:40:17 <Ryan> Professors just jerking us around. I had one remove 4pts from a 3pt exam problem.
05:40:32 <ynpvisitor999> !?
05:41:01 <Ryan> Another one assigned homework on Wednesday 12 days ago and said it was due "in two weeks". But collected it today, 12 days after the assignment.
05:41:28 <Betty> bah
05:41:34 <Ryan> The guy who took the points off left the following note: "Watch your math."
05:41:52 <Ryan> I'd laugh but I am so poed I'd probaby just puke...
05:42:38 <Dave from B> Becca would recommend coffee as well
05:42:55 <Ryan> Coffee with Baileys please :)
05:43:03 <Betty> yummy
05:43:05 <Ryan> Or maybe baileys with some coffee... that may work even better
05:43:27 <Betty> haha
05:47:54 <ynpvisitor4> Ryan, professors do not have much of a life, they have to feel power over someone. Tag, your it.
05:49:18 <Ryan> Most of ours are great guys. One even goes backpacking with us and we have some great works going on. But... these TWO.
05:50:20 <Betty> you should invite them to a cave trip and ....oops
05:50:27 <Ryan> lolololololol
05:50:36 <Betty> :-)
05:51:27 <ynpvisitor999> something says me the two wouldn't be seeing the daylight for quite some time...
05:51:33 <Dave from B> Shame on you, Betty!:)
05:51:33 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
05:51:38 <Betty> Morning Kevin
05:51:45 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
05:52:26 <Kevin L™> Morning if you say so. Not sure myself.
05:52:57 <Ryan> I think we may see BH before 9
05:53:04 <ynpvisitor999> interesting name change
05:53:09 <Ryan> It and the bubblers are very happy!
05:53:30 <ynpvisitor999> well, I hope BH holds off for about 5-10 minutes
05:53:41 <Betty> what? he can forget them to take out and come back a day later. stating he had to watch his math and after countig he remembered someone missing :-)
05:53:57 <Kevin L™> I like #18.
05:53:58 <Ryan> >(:heart:
05:54:43 <Dave from B> :D Betty
05:55:18 <Dave from B> Yes, Kevin...a good day for #18. No stree for the next 2 weeks for Kyle...but boy everyone else will be tense
05:55:26 <Betty> hey, what do you think of me :-D
05:56:03 <Betty> ind

05:56:26 <Dave from B> :!:0=:!:
05:56:29 <Ryan> oh hey!
05:56:35 <Ryan> 9?
05:56:38 <Ryan> I meant 8~
05:56:53 <Beehive> The espresso was good, mornin' yall!
05:57:01 <Kevin L™> Do you want to do text or should I Betty?
05:57:03 <Betty> yay
05:57:11 <Betty> you can
05:57:22 <Ryan> Gonna be a short indy I think
05:57:24 <Betty> if you are awake now
05:58:40 <ynpvisitor603> Check out the Mount Washburn North cam
05:59:04 <ynpvisitor603> Pretty cool shot
05:59:21 <Betty> cool
06:00:00 <Dave from B> Morning Kitt
06:00:08 <Kitt> thanks for the text
06:00:08 <Kevin L™> 16° is really cool
06:00:25 <ynpvisitor999> just in time :)
06:00:31 <Betty> hi Kitt
06:00:39 <Kitt> hello
06:01:26 <Betty> morning Jimbo
06:01:48 <Jimbo Cesium> Hi Betty and other Beehive gazers
06:02:03 <ynpvisitor999> I think Jimbo is better off not going in the water when he's this element
06:02:13 <Jimbo Cesium> Indeed
06:02:23 <Jimbo Cesium> Though I'm a swimmer
06:02:58 <ynpvisitor999> if you want to swim, though, would a bath of mineral oil do?
06:03:15 <Jimbo Cesium> Higher viscosity
06:03:28 <ynpvisitor999> but you won't explode :)
06:03:29 <Kevin L™> Give you a better workout.
06:03:42 <Jimbo Cesium> Not exploding is a good thing
06:05:29 <Betty> good height on Indy
06:06:00 <ynpvisitor999> one of the more powerful Indy's I've seen in a while, actually
06:06:06 <Jimbo Cesium> Cesium water reaction
06:06:29 <ynpvisitor999> will check in a bit, Jimbo
06:09:13 <ynpvisitor999> Lion splashing
06:10:03 <ynpvisitor18> I'm choppy, but windows is hogging bandwidth downloading an update
06:11:39 <Betty> BH
06:11:41 <ynpvisitor999> boom!
06:11:43 <ynpvisitor18> :bee:
06:11:49 <Ryan> On a delay
06:11:55 <Ryan> Thanks for the heads up
06:11:57 <Kitt> Beehive
06:12:19 <ynpvisitor999> 16m Indy lead time
06:12:30 <Ryan> streamers are gorgeous
06:12:35 <ynpvisitor37> is there a way to make the chat window larger?
06:13:31 <Ryan> Huh, I thought it was gonna be a white out....
06:13:45 <Ryan> tall Bee
06:14:03 <ynpvisitor999> BH shows up on static aswell
06:14:09 <ynpvisitor18> click hamburger on right select zoom percentage
06:16:05 <ynpvisitor18> 37, click hamburger on right select zoom percentage
06:16:33 <ynpvisitor37> what is "hamburger on right"?
06:17:09 <Beehive> *bows*
06:17:26 <Ryan> All right, I am out. Hey, we are getting rained on by Bee!
06:17:28 <ynpvisitor999> ≡ maybe, 18 & 37?
06:17:35 <ynpvisitor18> the three vertical lines on right below X
06:17:46 <ynpvisitor999> bye Ryan and Beehive
06:18:02 <ynpvisitor18> vertival = horizontal
06:18:31 <ynpvisitor37> ok, I did that but it don't change the chat window.
06:18:56 <ynpvisitor999> maybe you should ask Eric when he's back, 37
06:19:32 <ynpvisitor37> this has changed since yesterday for me.
06:19:46 <Betty> change to full screen for streaming and then go back. that works for me
06:21:09 <ynpvisitor999> for me changing to full screen does exactly the opposite. It makes the chat window smaller
06:21:37 <Betty> then hit refresh
06:21:39 <Eric> Missed it by a hair :-(
06:21:54 <Betty> bummer. Morning Eric
06:22:00 <Eric> Morning
06:22:00 <ynpvisitor999> morning Eric
06:22:14 <Betty> you did your hair? ;-)
06:22:18 <ynpvisitor37> that worked for me, thanks.
06:22:24 <Betty> yw
06:23:16 <Betty> so, what slimed the cam???
06:23:46 <Betty> anyway, back to my ceiling painting...
06:23:48 <ynpvisitor999> no idea, but what I do know, is that this stuff has likely frozen :(
06:24:33 <Kevin L™> OF is the only one that get it that hard.
06:28:43 <ynpvisitor999> Eric, do you know by any chance how long it takes for GT to render a graph of YVO logger data that spans two weeks and three days?
06:49:12 <ynpvisitor999> OF
06:50:11 <Kevin L™> And a fluffy one it is
06:50:44 <Betty> Riverside
06:51:54 <Betty> Lion
06:52:11 <ynpvisitor999> ini
06:52:36 <Kevin L™> Hope it is a long series
06:53:32 <Betty> I think my ceiling will never get finished :-(
06:53:49 <Betty> powerful :lion:
06:54:15 <Kevin L™> I hate painting ceilings.
06:54:45 <Betty> to cover everything first is the worst part
06:55:31 <Kevin L™> If I remember, paint over there isn't real cheap either.
06:56:11 <Betty> 30 bugs per 5 Litres
06:56:59 <Dave from B> Dirty paint?
06:57:01 <Kevin L™> Daisy
06:57:03 <Betty> Daisy ie
06:57:18 <Betty> no...white
06:58:56 <ynpvisitor3> how do you get all the bugs out?
06:58:59 <Kevin L™> Going to need NoDoz® for my shift today.
06:59:07 <Dave from B> Why do you have bugs in your paint?
06:59:35 <Kevin L™> Adds texture Dave.
07:00:01 <Dave from B> I usually add orange peels to mine
07:00:20 <Betty> we´re getting rid of our bugs in paint
07:00:41 <ynpvisitor3> bugs are cheaper than oranges
07:08:38 <ynpvisitor55> Do they have to close the park if there isn't snow on the roads?
07:09:17 <Dave from B> Closing Dates are set....not weather dependant
07:13:27 <ynpvisitor999> Dwarf or Depression?
07:16:16 <ynpvisitor36> nor do they open early if there's no snow on the road in the spring
07:17:20 <ynpvisitor12> it's about infrastructure and staffing more than weather
07:18:23 <ynpvisitor12> once upon a time you could drive the roads once the plows busted through
08:06:40 <Dave from B> Friday already?
08:06:47 <Eric> Must be :-D
08:06:54 <Eric> No overlook yet though
08:07:17 <Dave from B> My cabin misses me
08:14:56 <ynpvisitor93> Lion
08:15:01 <Dave from B> Lognest Grand interval since Oct 7 was yesterday...7Hr39min
08:15:10 <ynpvisitor93> Awe
08:15:13 <ynpvisitor93> Nevermind
08:17:37 <ynpvisitor93> Lion
08:18:02 <ynpvisitor93> >:(
08:18:08 <Dave from B> are you sure?
08:18:12 <ynpvisitor93> :(
08:18:14 <ynpvisitor93> NO
08:18:24 <Dave from B> It is trying to start
08:18:36 <ynpvisitor999> OF too
08:20:29 <ynpvisitor93> Nope
08:20:34 <ynpvisitor93> Not doing it
08:20:48 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
08:20:58 <ynpvisitor93> You wanna kill it?
08:21:13 <ynpvisitor999> no, you may if you have some dynamite
08:21:29 <Jimbo Cesium> I see Lion now!
08:21:29 <ynpvisitor999> though I'd advise you not to do that
08:21:38 <ynpvisitor93> I dont need explosives, I just need to say its erupting
08:23:34 <Eric> 93 has vocabulary kryptonite!
08:25:38 <Kevin L™> Hope the wind changes.
08:28:12 <Kevin L™> I need to get some of that cesium Jimbo.
08:30:08 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1029
08:30:20 <Kevin L™> ugh
08:30:46 <ynpvisitor999> rainbow, though
08:31:10 <Kevin L™> Rain too. :p
08:31:27 <ynpvisitor999> and that'll likely freeze to the dome, as it is still 20F
08:31:54 <Dave from B> yuck
08:32:22 <ynpvisitor999> looks like static is stuck
08:34:13 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder if someone is around to clean the camera dome
08:34:47 <Kevin L™> Don't count on it.
08:35:24 <ynpvisitor999> I know, but it would be nice if the dome got a clean
08:38:27 <ynpvisitor999> all logger data from active YVO loggers has been downloaded. Echinus appears to still be regularly erupting
08:39:16 <ynpvisitor999> and now I hope GT manages to make some nice graphs out of it
08:39:41 <ynpvisitor999> today's graph for Echinus:
08:40:00 <ynpvisitor999> 24h rather
08:40:18 <Eric> Wow...that is very consistent
08:40:46 <Dave from B> Nice, thanks 999
08:40:52 <ynpvisitor999> no problem :)
08:41:30 <ynpvisitor999> anyone interested in 30-day graph?
08:41:48 <Eric> Sure, link it up :-D
08:42:01 <ynpvisitor999>
08:42:03 <ynpvisitor999> there you go
08:43:36 <Dave from B> Hope it lasts thru the winter
08:43:47 <Joe> Nice, Dg
08:44:12 <ynpvisitor93> Oblong?
08:44:15 <ynpvisitor999> though not entirely certain, it appears as if Whirligig is slightly slowing down:
08:44:47 <ynpvisitor999> think so, 93
08:45:39 <ynpvisitor999> I surely think MAB will be happy with those graphs :)
08:46:41 <ynpvisitor40> Why all the bleeping beeping
08:47:25 <ynpvisitor999> dunno, there is an option to turn of that bleeping beeping, 40
08:47:42 <ynpvisitor999> to turn off*
08:48:04 <ynpvisitor40> But I may miss something important.
08:48:41 <ynpvisitor999> that's the risk
08:48:49 <ynpvisitor93> Sounds like gazers who wanna see Beehive :P
08:49:55 <ynpvisitor999> Eric, this might be a new link for the Help & Important Links tab: titled as 'Norris Temperature Graphs'
08:50:21 <ynpvisitor40> cam op needs a drone, a dome drone
08:51:25 <ynpvisitor999> would be nice, just casually flying across the UGB, avoiding trees and plumes
08:51:54 <ynpvisitor999> though getting a permit for that would be difficult, as using drones in Yellowstone is forbidden
08:52:39 <ynpvisitor40> Just say yo want to study wolves.
08:53:15 <ynpvisitor999> and think of some bogus reason why this could not be done using helicopters and hot air balloons
08:53:42 <ynpvisitor40> and not one to fly all over, just a dome polish once a day or so
08:54:04 <Dave from B> Maybe a new way to haze bison?
08:54:07 <Kevin L™> I think you call that a wiper.
08:54:22 <ynpvisitor999> looks like I understood it wrongly :lol:
08:54:47 <ynpvisitor40> Just thinking out side my box
08:56:48 <ynpvisitor999> the thing I find amusing, is that the Porcelain Tributary logger is broken and the notice says 'This instrument is currently offline and will be repaired in the summer of 2013.'
08:56:51 <Eric> bad wind direction :-(
08:57:18 <Dave from B> Must be a little behind 999
09:00:20 <ynpvisitor100> Dave, did you stay up for that long game last night? You must be exhausted
09:01:46 <Dave from B> I am tired. That was crazy
09:01:58 <ynpvisitor100> was the game indoors? I was wondering about the high score
09:02:17 <Kevin L™> Nobody knew how to pitch.
09:03:15 <ynpvisitor100> was the roof closed?
09:03:16 <Dave from B> Outdoors. I think baseball has been juiced all year. All time record for homers was set this season.
09:03:36 <Dave from B> I don't like it. I like good pitching
09:03:49 <Dave from B> roof was open
09:04:01 <ynpvisitor100> your team is do or die now, right?
09:04:21 <Dave from B> game against a pitcher who hasn't lost in months
09:04:39 <ynpvisitor100> ruh roh
09:05:00 <Eric> That was a hitters dream game last night
09:06:54 <ynpvisitor100> I wonder if the game beat out football in the ratings?
09:13:07 <Eric> I would assume it killed's the world series!
09:13:11 <Eric> game 5 tied up
09:14:09 <Kevin L™> You mean both people still watching the nfl watched the World Series instead?
09:15:59 <Eric> Hmm, the stands don't look empty to me :-P
09:17:08 <ynpvisitor40> CGI. Got to make it look like people are watching.
09:18:13 <Kevin L™> Wish the wind direction would change.
09:19:05 <ynpvisitor95> We need better coding. Lots of the memes in the stands are really unatractive.
09:19:47 <ynpvisitor100> I am amazed anyone still watches baseball
09:20:35 <Kevin L™> I like it but they need to put in a pitch clock.
09:22:02 <Kevin L™> Lion & Daisy due.
09:22:31 <Eric> Meh, there are lots of fans still. NFL is still making billions and it is run by billionaires.
09:22:33 <Eric> Grand
09:22:35 <Eric> .
09:22:36 <Eric> .
09:22:50 <Eric> or WT gone wild!
09:22:52 <ynpvisitor999> Lion should be in appx 8m
09:23:26 <Dave from B> 100, I only watch in the playoffs...too long and boring and I played for 15 years
09:23:29 <Eric> I hate this wind direction!
09:23:35 <ynpvisitor40> I miss bowling.
09:24:07 <Kevin L™> I did enjoy bowling too #40.
09:24:34 <Kevin L™> They do have about 8 hours of curling tomorrow.
09:27:04 <ynpvisitor999> uhm, Joe, Grand began its eruption @ 1122 instead of 1125
09:28:33 <ynpvisitor999> thanks :)
09:30:29 <Eric> It might be grand...I haven't seen any water :-P
09:31:00 <Kevin L™> It has the vapors
09:32:44 <ynpvisitor999> looks like a 2nd
09:32:48 <Kevin L™> 2nd?
09:33:13 <ynpvisitor40> Well enjoy the wolves.
09:33:31 <ynpvisitor999> I saw several spikes peeking above the steam at the start of the what appears to be 2nd burst
09:52:36 <ynpvisitor16> heard about this from earlier...
10:07:53 <Kevin L™> Think Lion was during Grand or we missed it.
10:09:05 <Kevin L™> Daisy
10:56:40 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:32:40 <Betty> Aurum is hot
11:32:57 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:33:21 <Kevin L™> It will tease us until OF steam covers it.
11:33:24 <Betty> did I mention it? i HATE PAINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11:33:53 <Dave from B> Too much paint on yourself instead of the ceiling?
11:34:11 <Betty> how did you get it?
11:34:45 <Betty> would have been a lot easier if the room was empty
11:35:25 <Kevin L™> Been there, done that. Hated it.
11:36:14 <Kevin L™> So does the truck work Dave?
11:36:42 <Eric> Giantess has been doing some nice boils lately
11:36:54 <Ryan> zzzz
11:37:04 <Ryan> Giantess, like most hot springs, occasionally boils...
11:37:43 <Betty> don´t be so negative, Ryan
11:37:50 <Dave from B> Yes it does....electrical relay box replaced. It was not the battery
11:38:12 <Eric> cheaper than buying a new truck :-D
11:38:20 <Ryan> Just pragmatic, Betty....
11:38:54 <Kevin L™> Maybe I scared it.
11:38:56 <Ryan> boom
11:39:03 <Dave from B> I still need a new truck but I'd like to keep this one going while we can
11:39:07 <Ryan> Aurum time!
11:39:08 <Eric> Easy to see the boils due to temp :-D
11:39:20 <Eric> Rocket launch
11:39:22 <Ryan> That temp also is killing Giantess
11:39:39 <Eric> Hmmm, didn't seem to kill it on it's last eruption :-P
11:39:58 <ynpvisitor36> [citation needed]
11:40:10 <ynpvisitor36> OF ie
11:40:17 <Eric> Also hot summer days didn't seem to help it either :-(
11:40:25 <Ryan> Thats cause it was ready to go. Have you ever sat and watched Giantess try for hours (days) and then have the temps drop, and the winds pick up, and it just dies?
11:40:38 <Ryan> Its really sad, and frustrating.
11:40:57 <Dave from B> People actually sit at Giantess?
11:40:59 <Eric> will go when it's ready, regardless of temp.
11:41:04 <Ryan> Of course, I'd be happy to have Giantess prove me wrong.
11:41:36 <Dave from B> Could we move the Giantess bench to Oblong? That might make Giantess erupt.
11:41:49 <Ryan> Yeah, Dave, when it tries. In 2014 we sat on it for almost a day and a half. For several hours there was constant boiling with periodic surges every few minutes. Some were 2-4ft and made some nice floods.
11:42:01 <Dave from B> Aren't most Giantess eruptions from Oct-Feb?
11:42:51 <Ryan> Not sure, I've never watched the pattern. Only know the pattern of the last few years...
11:43:24 <Betty> the pattern of the last 3 years is dormacy
11:43:27 <Eric> Anyway...I have to go mow the lawn, watch for Giantess :-P
11:43:31 <ynpvisitor36> the pattern of the last few years is no eruptions. Not when it is windy, not when it is hot, not when it is cold, not when it is dry, not when it is raining
11:43:40 <Dave from B> 1 eruption in 6 years:(
11:43:47 <Kevin L™> Last one was in January
11:44:00 <Ryan> No eruptions, indeed. Doesn't mean it hasn't tried.
11:44:16 <Kevin L™> One before was in the Summer
11:44:31 <Ryan> No eruptions =/= no activity. It just means no eruptions - that kind of thinking is why geyser reactivations are usually a surprise.
11:46:09 <Dave from B> Mow the lawn? It is still growing, Eric?
11:46:44 <Betty> Thomas mowed the last week too
11:46:53 <Ryan> Personally, I blame Anemone for the reason Giantess is dead.
11:46:58 <Ryan> Or Morning - whichever makes less sense.
11:47:02 <Kevin L™> My lawn needs a thresher
12:18:05 <Dave from B> First measurable amount of snow for B coming this week:(
12:19:01 <Kevin L™> Only an 80% chance of snow for closing weekend.
12:19:37 <Betty> I thought for Vegas :-)
12:20:09 <Kevin L™> 80% chance of 80s for Vegas!
12:20:24 <Betty> haha
12:26:10 <ynpvisitor114> Here for a 6 hour BH.
12:26:33 <Dave from B> haha 114
12:26:44 <ynpvisitor114> So if it is Aurum's fault for Giantess, it is Kevin's fault, right?
12:27:37 <Kevin L™> May as well blame me. You will have to get in line though.
12:31:06 <Kevin L™> Love the color on the steam
12:33:28 <Betty> Depression
12:35:34 <Kevin L™> Looks like a push
12:41:18 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy ie
12:41:19 <Kevin L™> Daisy
12:43:14 <ynpvisitor114> :daisy:
12:43:35 <ynpvisitor114> What is that about old dogs?
12:45:49 <ynpvisitor114> Wonder if Dave has sold out of Octopus for Halloween?
12:48:45 <Dave from B> I still have some 114....How much did you need?:)
12:49:33 <ynpvisitor114> Don't think I can afford the over night freight.
12:49:42 <Kevin L™> Grotto
13:05:18 <ynpvisitor114> Well, I will have to come back to see the second 6 hour BH later today.
13:05:31 <Betty> Oblong?
13:06:09 <Kevin L™> could be
13:09:27 <Kevin L™> For the Dodgers Dave:
13:17:27 <Betty> OF
13:18:12 <Kevin L™> Not really. It's photoshopped.
13:18:44 <Kevin L™> Aurum
13:19:03 <Kevin L™> :p
13:19:46 <Betty> why now?
13:19:51 <Kevin L™> Yep. On static
13:20:01 <Kevin L™> @#$%$##%% OF!!!!!!!!
13:20:01 <Dave from B> I like it, Kevin
13:20:05 <Betty> I see it
13:20:22 <Dave from B> That is crazy...Aurum, you little devil
13:21:44 <Kevin L™> That is really annoying.
13:22:35 <Kevin L™> Can you remember the George Michaels Sports Machine Dave?
13:23:07 <Betty> Riverside
13:23:13 <Dave from B> No, I don't
13:26:44 <Kevin L™> It was a Sunday night sports wrap up show before the 10,000 sports networks. He used to do that one at the end of baseball season with the good, bad, and unusual catches along with the umpires and managers yelling at each other.
13:26:56 <Jimbo Cesium> I do. Michaels was local to DC.
13:27:36 <Kevin L™> It was a great show. Do you remember Catch Us If You Can at the end of baseball season?
13:28:17 <Dave from B> I don't remember that either:( What's my name?
13:30:56 <Kevin L™> I did find plays of the year:
13:36:37 <Dave from B> Time for me to head out and get some things done at home. Have a great evening everyone!
13:37:02 <Betty> enjoy yours, Dave
13:37:03 <Dave from B> 997,775 to go
13:37:07 <Betty> bye
13:37:09 <Kevin L™> bye
13:37:24 <Betty> haha
13:37:39 <Dave from B> Get to work on that, Betty!
13:38:08 <Kevin L™> Now that your ceiling is done
13:38:09 <Betty> where is the counter?
13:38:36 <Betty> ceiling cost me a bad knee :-(
13:39:15 <Kevin L™> Need a recap?
13:39:50 <Betty> no
13:48:42 <ynpvisitor999> looks like I haven't missed all that much - just an OF, Aurum and Riverside
13:49:03 <Kevin L™> Didn't miss much of Aurum.
13:49:27 <Betty> nice on static though
13:49:29 <ynpvisitor999> blocked by good 'ole fluffy?
13:49:42 <Betty> yup
13:50:11 <Kevin L™> Good is not the word I was thinking of but my word did contain 4 letters.
14:06:46 <Ryan2> evenin'
14:08:05 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon Ryan
14:15:20 <Ryan2> So, Kevin; this evening's gripe:
14:15:50 <Ryan2> Doing a symbolic FEA setup of two 2-D triangles. 8 sheets of paper and the final matrix took up 4 of them.
14:16:06 <Ryan2> You know, there's a reason why computers were invented before FEA was even considered possible...
14:16:20 <Kevin L™> :)
14:16:53 <Kevin L™> Ever design a freeway with a slide rule and a calculator?
14:17:06 <Ryan2> Like, seriously - we know the process. We will never, *never*, have to do an FEA run by hand. And if we do its because WWIII destroyed our infrastructure.
14:17:42 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a young engineer I once knew!
14:17:48 <Ryan2> No, but there is no way you could do an FEA by hand on stuff like that - it takes a computer (today) over an hour and a half sometimes...
14:18:34 <Kevin L™> Sort of like my Son when I tried to teach him woodworking using hand tools. "Dad, this is the 21st Century. We use power tools!"
14:18:46 <Ryan2> I mean - you *could* - but WHY would you? This simple problem has a matrix over 400x400 that we are writing out in pieces.
14:19:18 <Ryan2> I still woodwork by hand - *that* is possible and has its place. This? Hell, even Mercury used computers for THIS... that and a LOT of testing.
14:19:50 <Kevin L™> I can relate. They had us doing calculation by hand to the 1000th of a foot. Right. Like a grader operator is going to get it to 1000th of a foot?
14:20:49 <Ryan2> Exactly - all this is doing is taking many hours away from doing stuff that is actually helpful - like learning the actual software I will have to use someday.
14:21:17 <Ryan2> If someone asks me to run an FEA on a part I am NOT popping out paper, MATLAB, and a pencil.... ok maybe I will - but Ansys will be very close...
14:22:00 <Kevin L™> Sounds like you are ready for the real world!
14:23:19 <Ryan2> UGH... on a similar note I refuse to let the rocketry team manufacture some parts with CNC lathes... Milling, yes, on some parts.
14:24:20 <Ryan2> Somethings are just out of our ability on manual machines. But I make them machine our bulkheads with diak (or vernier!) calipers and a paper CAD drawing. Seven hours in front of a lathe for one part will certainly make them appreciate the risk of an explosive failure...
14:24:28 <Ryan2> dial*
14:25:49 <Ryan2> *That* I think is a very useful skill - the ability to walk into almost any machine shop and make a one and done prototype or custom part.
14:26:29 <Eric> Almost any machine shop now days will have a computerized CNC and they will just ask you for a cad file :-P
14:27:28 <Kevin L™> That would have been fun as a kid. We did balsa nose cones on a hand drill using sandpaper and a dowel to fit into the drill.
14:28:59 <Ryan2> The ability to just produce a CAD file and give it to a machine shop creates as problems as it solves.
14:29:03 <Eric> Yes, cnc that can carve up almost any type of material is awesome. You can prototype in cardboard :-D
14:29:50 <Ryan2> Assuming you've designed the part so it can be made that way.
14:30:23 <Eric> Just like all engineering...garbage in, garbage out
14:30:34 <Ryan2> Honestly, we have a CNC lathe and mill. The time to set it up to machine a rocket bulkhead, and then enter it and let it have at it is almsot as much time (if not more) than doing it manually.
14:31:32 <Kevin L™> They are better for multiple uses than just one
14:32:27 <Ryan2> Yeah - if we needed ten of them then yes I'd go for a CNC. But one or two? Nah - give me cutting oil and let me have at it. I'll be happier anyways...
14:32:56 <Kevin L™> Yep
14:33:49 <Ryan2> and have a giant grease stain like a strip up the middle of me :)
14:34:33 <Kevin L™> Been there!
14:56:22 <ynpvisitor999> ladies and gentlemen, take your seat for the upcoming eruptions of OF, Castle, Grand and Daisy
14:57:24 <Eric> Lot of green in the dashboard :-D
14:57:36 <ynpvisitor999> indeed :)
14:59:18 <ynpvisitor999> Castle within the next half an hour or so
15:00:40 <ynpvisitor999> first preplay of OF since big preplay few minutes ago
15:08:36 <ynpvisitor999> I'm not liking the two yellow bars at the top of the predictions tab
15:09:25 <Ryan2> OF is just having fun
15:09:27 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1709
15:11:18 <ynpvisitor999> Castle
15:11:23 <Eric> castle
15:11:31 <Betty> OF:castle:
15:11:40 <Eric> grand?
15:11:41 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
15:11:41 <Ryan2> OF
15:11:47 <Kevin L™> Grand
15:11:47 <Ryan2> Castle
15:11:50 <Ryan2> Grand
15:11:51 <Eric> yerp
15:12:04 <Eric> come on daisy
15:12:05 <Betty> :castle: OF :grand:
15:12:08 <Kevin L™> Where is Daisy?
15:12:27 <ynpvisitor999> soon™
15:13:01 <Ryan2> Holy crap! Sprinkler is erupting TOO!
15:13:16 <Eric> I don't see it
15:13:53 <Ryan2> *sigh*
15:14:50 <ynpvisitor999> Sprinkler? The only feature nearby that is ie, is the Terra Cotta complex
15:15:08 <Eric> nice BH burp
15:15:21 <ynpvisitor999> some more
15:15:37 <ynpvisitor999> a little more
15:15:50 <Ryan2> You guys have no sense of humor
15:15:57 <ynpvisitor999> BH!
15:15:58 <Eric> BH?
15:15:58 <ynpvisitor999> .
15:15:59 <ynpvisitor999> .
15:16:00 <ynpvisitor999> .
15:16:00 <Eric> .
15:16:00 <ynpvisitor999> .
15:16:01 <Eric> .
15:16:01 <ynpvisitor999> .
15:16:01 <Eric> .
15:16:02 <Ryan2> I guess BH could do a short
15:16:06 <Ryan2> Holy crap
15:16:07 <Eric> Woza
15:16:12 <Betty> hahaha, cool
15:16:18 <Ryan2> why not...
15:16:20 <Eric> mega awesome afternoon
15:16:25 <Eric> Go Giantess!
15:16:38 <Ryan2> I feel bad for anyone in basin haha
15:16:41 <Betty> 9h
15:16:48 <ynpvisitor16> WHAAAAAT
15:16:59 <ynpvisitor48> good job
15:17:00 <Ryan2> Yep
15:17:02 <Ryan2> 9h4m
15:17:03 <ynpvisitor48> everything at once
15:17:04 <Ryan2> Dang
15:17:14 <Kevin L™> Never seen this before!
15:17:31 <Eric> Go Daisy....
15:18:19 <Betty> hi Kitt
15:18:21 <Kitt> Enjoy every bee you get
15:18:24 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon Kitt
15:18:33 <Kitt> Bee is trying to break
15:18:48 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
15:18:54 <Eric> daisy
15:18:55 <Ryan2> Yeah!
15:18:56 <Eric> woot
15:19:05 <Betty> yeah
15:19:07 <Eric> BH, CAstle, Grand and Daisy!
15:19:22 <Eric> Not sure I have ever seen this.
15:19:34 <Kevin L™> The day Graham doesn't show up!
15:19:40 <Betty> what about a Lion?
15:19:49 <ynpvisitor999> not ready yet
15:20:01 <Kevin L™> I haven't and I have been running the cam for over 6 years!
15:20:06 <Betty> says who? :-D
15:20:10 <Ryan2> Just like BH wasn't ready :)
15:20:20 <Ryan2> This was a very much needed break from homework
15:20:25 <Kevin L™> Maybe Giantess?
15:20:29 <ynpvisitor999> Grand seems done for now
15:20:35 <ynpvisitor999> 2nd!
15:20:39 <Eric> booom
15:20:54 <ynpvisitor80> I've seen this once before about 15-20 years back. No sun that time though
15:21:08 <ynpvisitor80> I was in basin at the time
15:21:11 <Betty> I really do like this
15:21:13 <ynpvisitor999> I'm actually shaking a bit... lol
15:21:33 <Kevin L™> The supervolcano is going to blow!
15:21:35 <ynpvisitor80> me too
15:21:42 <Ryan2> We got one in 2014 like this. Except Penta was ie too lol
15:21:58 <Betty> go Penta
15:22:06 <Ryan2> Sun was out for that one
15:22:12 <ynpvisitor116> I'm pretty sure I have a capture of OF, Beehive,Grand and Giant
15:22:15 <Eric> Maybe sprinkler will go for you too Ryan :-P
15:22:17 <Ryan2> Same time of day. Didn't know where to look
15:22:33 <Ryan2> Heck with Sprinkler... Anemone all the way!
15:22:40 <Eric> Dreamer
15:22:43 <ynpvisitor999> Grand still seems to be going
15:22:55 <ynpvisitor999> not now
15:23:07 <Ryan2> 3b? Why not
15:23:19 <Kevin L™> Goal!
15:23:25 <ynpvisitor999> what about a fourth or fifth, or even tenth plus one?
15:23:41 <Ryan2> I am on a delay - is it actually?
15:23:54 <Eric> Well, now graham will really have nothing to see this evening.
15:24:17 <ynpvisitor999> no, just wishfully thinking :)
15:24:27 <Ryan2> oh
15:24:34 <Ryan2> back to matlab
15:24:36 <Ryan2> lol
15:25:47 <ynpvisitor999> real short interval on BH - just 9h04m
15:26:07 <Ryan2> Pretty sure we talked last time about how it likes shorts after longs...
15:26:40 <ynpvisitor999> could be, but I might not have been around at that time or my memory is just like a sieve
15:27:05 <Kitt> 4 - 10.5 hour intervals or less from Beehive since Oct. started
15:27:44 <Ryan2> Nah you were there, and I was getting a bit of poo for assuming two shorts - and called the evening eruption within 5min :)
15:27:49 <ynpvisitor999> I hope this is a good precursor for that other tall geyser near Beehive that just so happens to occupy a large pool
15:28:21 <Kitt> sure hope that is why Beehive is behaving this way
15:28:39 <ynpvisitor999> Castle major?
15:29:05 <Kitt> well thanks for the text
15:31:10 <Betty> Lion huff
15:31:50 <ynpvisitor999> if it does build to a full eruption, it is late to the party
15:43:12 <ynpvisitor999> SC ie
16:09:08 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
16:09:16 <ynpvisitor999> night Betty
16:09:22 <ynpvisitor100> Sweet Dreams Betty
16:09:24 <Kevin L™> Sleep?
16:20:25 <ynpvisitor999> I hope GT devs will have a look into GT not being able to render the graph of the downloaded data from the YVO
16:20:53 <ynpvisitor999> anyways, I'm signing off for today
16:36:50 <Will B> the problem lies with YVO
16:37:07 <Will B> where we get the data from their server is broken on their end
16:43:54 <Graham> Hello. So when I miss my shift BH gets excited and erupts in shirt interval?
16:44:09 <Graham> Was that the shortest of the year?
16:44:30 <Kevin L™> EVERYTHING erupted at the same time
16:55:47 <Eric> lion
16:59:45 <Kevin L™> Well, almost everything
17:06:00 <ynpvisitor31> what happened at 1711-1718?
17:07:02 <Kevin L™> EVERYTHING erupted at the same time
17:10:47 <Graham> Sigh, and I missed it
17:11:05 <Graham> Giantess didn't erupt, did it?
17:12:09 <Kevin L™> Came close
17:15:01 <Kevin L™> Looks like the Golden Knights may get their 2nd loss tonight.
17:18:21 <Kevin L™> 6.8 eq near Australia
17:21:26 <Kevin L™> Moonset tonight at 0232 with 80%
17:26:03 <ynpvisitor43> Was everything predicted to erupt that close together?
17:26:41 <Kevin L™> Nope. BH was undet 10 hours
17:28:36 <Kevin L™> I think the other 4 were in their window
17:29:59 <Kevin L™> We were lucky it was on wide view
17:39:35 <Kevin L™> Oh well. Our 2nd loss.
17:57:01 <ynpvisitor925> Daisy
20:24:19 <ynpvisitor29> fan & mortar??
20:32:29 <Kevin L™> It was in the right area but with 20° and a grainy pic it is hard to tell.
20:37:03 <ynpvisitor86> Daisy
20:37:45 <ynpvisitor86> 2236 ie
20:37:52 <ynpvisitor86> wc
20:54:57 <ynpvisitor29> Grand
