22:44:43 <ynpvisitor999> for anyone around: YVO logger data is in, and Echinus is still erupting regularly. Intervals are about 2-2½ hours long
23:24:26 <ynpvisitor999> OF 0124 ns
02:28:08 <ynpvisitor11> OF ie
05:00:16 <Ryan> Happy bubblers look happy
05:02:22 <Ryan> I think we will be seeing Beehive relatively soon this morning
05:03:50 <Dave from B> Morning Ryan. I hope we can see it when it does erupt.
05:08:23 <Dave from B> Morning, letter from a creek in the LGB.
05:15:21 <ynpvisitor12> how about NGB
05:18:17 <Dave from B> You are right 12. What is creek near Pink Cone?
05:18:41 <Ryan> White Creek I think
05:18:42 <ynpvisitor12> Tangled Creek
05:19:02 <Ryan> Or that XD
05:19:11 <ynpvisitor12> or both. :P
05:19:13 <Jimbo Tantalum> Tantalus Creek?
05:19:15 <Dave from B> Thanks, 12. I was thinking Tangled. Well, now I know the names of 2!
05:19:37 <ynpvisitor12> well they both start with "T"!
05:19:41 <Dave from B> haha
05:21:56 <Jimbo Tantalum> Isn't Tantalus Creek the one that fills up after an Echinus eruption?
05:22:42 <Ryan> yep
05:22:49 <Ryan> "fill" = floods
05:23:06 <Jimbo Tantalum> Well now I know why it got its name
05:30:23 <ynpvisitor12> just looked it up - Son of Zeus!
05:30:39 <Dave from B> Google doesn't have a good map of Tantalus creek. Looking for a good one now
05:31:37 <ynpvisitor12> East Fork drains Porcelain, South Fork drains Back Basin
05:36:31 <ynpvisitor12345> I am always amazed with the views from Washburn
05:36:55 <ynpvisitor12345> Southern view is so gorgeous right now
05:39:14 <Dave from B> Thanks for the geography lesson 12!
05:40:44 <ynpvisitor12> So Tantalum might be related, Jimbo Tantalum?
05:46:51 <Jimbo Tantalum> Related to me?
05:57:43 <ynpvisitor12> Tantalum, related to son of Zeus? = Tantalus?
06:04:23 <Jimbo Tantalum> Is there a Zeus geyser or hot spring in Norris? The reason I think they named it is the variable flow and depth -- the punishment of Tantalus was that he could never reach fruit that was just out of reach, and could never drink water that he was standing in -- because it would recede before he could bring his mouth to it
06:05:12 <ynpvisitor18> .
06:05:13 <ynpvisitor18> .
06:05:14 <ynpvisitor18> .
06:05:15 <ynpvisitor18> .
06:05:20 <ynpvisitor12345> yay
06:05:42 <Dave from B> Need a text sent?
06:06:03 <Jimbo Tantalum> The lighting is good for this one
06:06:35 <ynpvisitor999> yay
06:07:40 <Ryan> Yay!!
06:07:45 <Dave from B> I will check on name originas of Tantulus in Lee's Nomenclature tonight
06:08:44 <ynpvisitor12> Nomenclature just theorizes that it was because the water is unfit to drink
06:08:57 <Jimbo Tantalum> That works too!
06:09:01 <Kevin L™> Did I miss anything?
06:09:02 <ynpvisitor999> for anyone interested, Echinus appears to have been erupting regularly for the last week. Logger data came in twice - first one around 1800 yesterday, the second one near 0000
06:10:29 <ynpvisitor999> :bee::bee::bee:
06:11:01 <Jimbo Tantalum> Man, lateral blast action
06:11:18 <Dave from B> Thanks again 12
06:12:18 <Ryan> Holy crap
06:12:42 <ynpvisitor79> A hot mess!
06:12:46 <Ryan> So much for that lighting lol
06:12:58 <ynpvisitor999> this might mess up the view on the Lion group for a while
06:13:05 <Kevin L™> Good steam though
06:13:19 <Ryan> Jeez, I love when Excel crashes....
06:13:36 <ynpvisitor999> too much data?
06:13:41 <Ryan> Apparently
06:13:45 <Ryan> Wasnt even that much
06:14:10 <ynpvisitor79> Glad yesterday’s was good viewing
06:14:29 <Kevin L™> Isn't Excel a Microsoft product? And you don't expect it to crash?
06:15:34 <Ryan> I'd prefer MATLAB or C++.... but this particular application I need it to be in a format most people have
06:15:37 <ynpvisitor999> so far, the only Microsoft product that keeps on crashing quite frequently, is Windows Player. All the other ones run fine, though with some stutters time to time
06:16:06 <Ryan> Did Lion join in that mess?
06:16:51 <Kevin L™> I guess you don't use Edge DG
06:17:18 <Ryan> Nope
06:18:31 <ynpvisitor999> nope, I've been using Firefox for more than 4 years now
06:19:16 <ynpvisitor999> I used Chrome before that an basically almost always when I'm not on my own pc
06:20:06 <Kevin L™> Edge is not usable. Just ask Dave.
06:21:41 <ynpvisitor999> I actually had to convince my father that Edge caused problems with the site of our bank accounts and then had to teach him how to use Chrome...
06:21:52 <Dave from B> I'm now a happy Chrome...just celebrated my 1 week anniversary:)
06:22:02 <ynpvisitor999> :)
06:29:52 <Eric> Morning all
06:30:09 <Eric> Glad Chrome is working out for you Dave.
06:32:42 <Ryan> Crashed again
06:33:06 <Ryan> Glad I saved it. Sometimes I hate Autosave, this always happens when I try to do something during the autosave
06:33:35 <ynpvisitor999> can't you just disable the autosave?
06:44:54 <Dave from B> Just received my new costs for next years health insurance....up to over 31K per year:(
06:45:03 <Dave from B> That's for my family of 5
06:49:01 <ynpvisitor999> that's a lot
06:49:10 <ynpvisitor999> of money
06:49:23 <Ryan> off to class, later y'all
06:49:30 <ynpvisitor999> bye Ryan
06:49:56 <Ryan> Also, 999
06:50:24 <Ryan> I could turn off autosave, but I dont have nearly enough time to A) learn how and B) forget to turn it back on and catch hell from the next user of this computer
06:51:30 <ynpvisitor999> I see
06:52:13 <ynpvisitor999> Lion?
06:53:20 <ynpvisitor999> does kind-of look like it-ish
06:55:50 <ynpvisitor999> OF 0855
06:58:42 <ynpvisitor999> appears to still be going
07:40:09 <ynpvisitor77> why doesn't he just work on his own computer?
07:49:55 <Kevin L™> Probably a school computer.
08:00:25 <Eric> Is that steam or fog down basin?
08:00:44 <Eric> Seems very localized
08:01:08 <Kevin L™> Could be a combination
08:02:56 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
08:38:21 <Ryan> 77, I didn't use my computer because I was running Excel in conjunction with two other CAD programs that won't run on my computer.
08:38:43 <Ryan> Also, I think Oblong is very much ie at 10:37
08:39:06 <ynpvisitor33> That is Grand
08:39:29 <Ryan> Ah, I saw the Grand prediction still up
08:49:13 <ynpvisitor52> Kevin. Not all things Vegas are good. About to turn off Vega$, was watching when I had breakfast. What a poorly made show. Now I realize why I do not remember it.
08:52:10 <Kevin L™> Not the best for sure, but it is fun to see some of the vintage Vegas scenes. I remember when they were filming I came across a pretty beat up T Bird with the TANNA plates on it. We were surprised when we saw it thinking it looked much better on TV. Went around the corner and there was another one that looked like it came out of the showroom.
08:54:58 <Kevin L™> They had the entire series for $25. Worth that just for the memories. BTW the building used for the police station was really the police station. Now Zappos shoes.
08:56:28 <ynpvisitor52> They must have run out of Vegas scenes. This one is in San Fran. Even has Mrs Howell in it. I thought she was stuck on a island?
08:57:20 <ynpvisitor52> Not a good day for Aurum watching is it?
08:57:52 <Kevin L™> I remember that one. May have been done as a test for another show. I know there were several shows that did that.
08:58:35 <Kevin L™> No, Aurum is pretty hidden. Not a whole lot of time to watch though. Working on a car with a bad attitude today.
09:00:20 <ynpvisitor52> You been hanging out with Dave?
09:01:14 <Dave from B> ha
09:04:20 <ynpvisitor999> Lion trying
09:04:22 <ynpvisitor52> Thought of you the other day. A place I pick up pallets from had a truck out to take pictures. I am sure they were going to list it for sale. Would have been perfect for you. Right size box, lift gate, only thing wrong was no refer.
09:07:19 <Dave from B> And, probably 500,000 miles. I've decided to postpone purchase until the spring
09:07:31 <ynpvisitor52> Well enjoy the sunny day.
09:08:17 <ynpvisitor52> That will just give them the chance to put on another 50,000 miles.
09:22:09 <ynpvisitor77> coyote
09:22:42 <Jake> he went left
09:22:59 <Jake> had a bit of a limping trot
09:24:50 <Eric> on static
09:24:58 <Eric> using the footpath :-P
09:25:21 <ynpvisitor44> dep?
09:25:32 <ynpvisitor999> was thinking the same thing, 44
09:53:36 <Dave from B> Everything is fuzzy today:(
09:58:51 <Kevin L™> I think I got my car fixed Dave.
10:02:04 <Dave from B> That's great!
10:22:31 <Eric> daisy
10:22:33 <Eric> ie
10:31:14 <Dave from B> Eric, I was hoping for a Sounders-Timbers playoff match. What happened?
10:32:33 <Eric> Don't know dave...I don't really watch sports :-P
11:28:29 <Jake> OF ie
11:28:42 <ynpvisitor999> that's early
11:28:56 <ynpvisitor999> early as in, not in the window yet
11:29:19 <Kevin L™> At least the tourists won't yell at them today!
11:30:56 <ynpvisitor999> it'll be a long, as after 2 minutes OF didn't even try to do a short
11:35:36 <Kevin L™> Aurum keeps teasing.
11:36:10 <ynpvisitor999> and when it's about to go, Giantess suddenly blocks the view...
11:38:32 <Jake> I wonder if that's Artemisia down basin
11:39:12 <ynpvisitor999> wouldn't that be a thicker steam plume, considering it's 28°?
11:40:03 <Jake> I don't know it's farther away than Grotto
11:40:08 <Jake> Riverside 1339
11:41:04 <Jake> steam looks different than Grotto, more slowly billowing and it seems slightly right of the Grotto spot
11:41:45 <ynpvisitor999> I see
11:43:27 <ynpvisitor13> Oblong
12:44:26 <ynpvisitor91> aurum
12:53:04 <Kevin L™> It knows
13:06:22 <Dave from B> Sorry again, Kevin
13:11:45 <Kevin L™> Did you see northern lights last night Dave?
13:12:18 <Dave from B> Nope...eyelids were closed by 10 am
13:12:24 <Dave from B> 10 pm
13:12:44 <Betty> good afternoon
13:13:29 <Kevin L™> Thgey may have been going. More tonight. Pic from Wyoming:
13:14:19 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
13:14:35 <Kevin L™> Hi
13:14:42 <Betty> hi Dave and Kevin
13:15:26 <Betty> OF
13:19:59 <Betty> Daisy
13:29:18 <Betty> hi Jake
13:42:55 <Kitt> yay, pump organ project is complete
13:43:04 <Kevin L™> :)
13:43:20 <Kitt> was so tired I slept thru this morning's Beehive
13:43:26 <Betty> nice, Kitt
13:43:40 <Betty> not so nice, Kitt
13:43:48 <Kitt> I saw your comment about the Aurora
13:43:50 <Betty> :-)
13:43:51 <Kevin L™> My Mom had one of those. I think it is under a pile at my Dad's place.
13:44:09 <Kevin L™> Did you see them Kitt? More tonight.
13:44:16 <Kitt> no
13:44:33 <Kevin L™> They say they were best before moonrise.
13:44:35 <Kitt> but when I went to dump the trash I did notice the sky looked different
13:44:49 <Kitt> I thought we were getting fogged in
13:44:58 <Kitt> will have to watch for them tonight
13:45:11 <Kevin L™> Don't know where the Bighorn Mountains are in WY but the pic in the link was taken there.
13:45:31 <Kitt> have never seen a bunch of color when I have seen an Aurora
13:46:03 <Kitt> the Bighorn Mountains are between Worland (actually Ten Sleep) and Buffalo/Sheridan
13:46:34 <Kevin L™> We had some good ones one year I was at the park. All kinds of green and purple.
13:47:43 <Kitt> I will definitely go outside after dark tonight
13:48:42 <Eric> Driverless Shuttle Crashes 1 Hour After Introduction In Las Vegas
13:48:48 <Kitt> the person who took that photo was on the eastern slope of the mountain
13:49:03 <Kevin L™> My kid is in Calgary but I don't know if he went out.
13:49:18 <Dave from B> Eric, please send link:)
13:49:35 <Betty> hi Eric
13:49:48 <Kevin L™> Even the robots are lousy drivers in Vegas
13:50:28 <Eric>
13:50:59 <Eric> Apparently the crash was human error from a truck hitting the bus.
13:51:11 <Eric> But pretty funny still.
13:52:14 <Dave from B> Thanks
13:52:29 <Dave from B> Yep...not the computers fault!:D
13:53:46 <Kitt> Have a good day
13:54:00 <Kitt> Off to see what else I can do
13:54:01 <Betty> bye Kitt
13:54:14 <Betty> I´m out for sleep, too
13:54:14 <Kevin L™> Later Kitt.
13:54:24 <Kevin L™> Bye Betty.
13:56:41 <Dave from B> Bey Betty and Kitt
13:56:49 <Dave from B> By*...uggh
13:57:46 <Kevin L™> Wi taulk aDve Speek heir.
13:58:08 <Dave from B> :P:P:P
13:58:34 <Dave from B> It's even sadder that I can actually read that
13:58:49 <Kevin L™> :)
14:02:01 <Graham> hello
14:05:03 <Graham> turban?
14:05:29 <Dave from B> Good evening Graham
14:05:39 <Dave from B> Looks like turban
14:07:27 <Graham> did you get any snow?
14:08:53 <Dave from B> Yep..3 storms in last week...probably about 8-10"
14:09:08 <Dave from B> Already looking forward to Spring!
14:09:10 <Graham> oooh nice
14:11:45 <Graham> we should get our first freeze Friday
14:15:40 <Dave from B> Have a great evening everyone! Time to go home.
14:15:55 <Graham> bye Dave
14:18:14 <Eric> Night Dave
14:18:53 <Kevin L™> Night Dave.
14:19:16 <Kevin L™> John Boy, you can stay up a while.
14:22:12 <Graham> grand
14:22:15 <Graham> .
14:22:16 <Graham> .
14:22:16 <Graham> .
14:28:44 <Kevin L™> That was nice of Dave and Betty.
14:29:15 <Graham> whatare you doing here?
14:30:20 <Kevin L™> Relaxing after fixing leaks in car and drip system, and retofitting chicken coops for new feeders.
14:30:41 <Kevin L™> You should watch for Giantess tomorrow though.
14:30:52 <Graham> wow so Grand rewarded you
14:31:18 <Kevin L™> Sure did. Unlike that pesky Aurum. :P
14:32:49 <Kevin L™> Looks like a 1b
14:33:00 <Graham> yep
14:45:23 <Graham> of ie
15:20:35 <Kevin L™> Grotto
15:49:48 <Graham> goodnight
16:16:28 <kcmule> OF ie
16:43:08 <ynpvisitor...> Nice glow. Cool! The Star may have been in the east, but our glow is to the west.
20:30:25 <ynpvisitor4> Looks like Gand ie
20:36:42 <ynpvisitor106> And Daisy
20:47:55 <ynpvisitor63> Is that Lion or BH?
21:26:11 <ynpvisitor30> What did you decide? was it Lion or Bee?
21:32:28 <ynpvisitor63> Looked more like Lion.
21:40:40 <ynpvisitor30> Looks like splashing at beenow
21:40:52 <ynpvisitor30> bee now
21:43:11 <ynpvisitor30> let's try again , I was saying it looked like there was splashing at bee now
21:44:42 <ynpvisitor63> If it was Lion then we should get another in about 20m.
21:46:20 <ynpvisitor30> of course they could have both erupted at the same time and you would still get possibly get a 2nd lion
21:47:59 <ynpvisitor30> so visitor #4 thought they saw Grand at 2230 ie, but didn't put on GT
21:49:00 <ynpvisitor30> Old Faithful
21:49:23 <ynpvisitor30> 2348 wc
21:50:38 <ynpvisitor63> BH could go now and we wouldn't know if.
21:51:58 <ynpvisitor30> well hope it goes soon for you
21:52:12 <ynpvisitor30> have a meeting in the morning so it is time for bed for me
21:52:14 <ynpvisitor30> night
21:53:42 <ynpvisitor63> Bye
21:55:57 <ynpvisitor89> is that Daisy?
21:59:18 <ynpvisitor63> Looks like it could be.
