04:48:23 <Rice> Eric, You must be an East Coat Person also?
06:43:54 <Dave from B> Morning Rice....Eric is a left coaster...He forgot to log off last night
06:57:44 <Rice> I was one of only 4 people on this morning. It is lonely here in the AM.
07:00:58 <Rice> Where are you from Dave?
07:12:13 <ynpvisitor25> Rice, Dave is from Billings MT.
07:21:24 <ynpvisitor25> OF 0719
07:21:46 <Dave from B> Sorry, Rice...was on the phone
07:29:42 <Dave from B> Rice, are you in the way of the Nor'Easter today?
07:37:54 <Rice> I am in upstate NY, Binghamton, we are just on the edge, getting 2-4" of snow.
07:44:33 <Dave from B> Today is the last day of the Boston Seafood Show and thousands of people will be trying to leave Boston today and tomorrow
07:44:48 <Dave from B> They are supposed to to get a foot
07:45:53 <Art> We're suppose to get 20" here today, good skiing, terrible shoveling
07:45:55 <Art>
07:48:28 <Dave from B> Art, it hasn't been a fun 2 weeks for you. Another one coming next week?
07:52:25 <Rice> Grew up in NY, spent my life with "winter", but I am tired of it this year. It is March, time to move on.
07:54:01 <Dave from B> I hear ya, Rice. That's the way I felt until about 10 days ago. Spring is finally arriving in the Northern Rockies.
08:02:54 <Art> Looks like a week of below average temperatures coming up next
10:08:20 <Kevin L™> Been out getting the coolers ready. Supposed to hit 80° today.
10:09:07 <Dave from B> nice!
10:12:05 <Kevin L™> Something down basin. Probably Grotto.
10:18:34 <ynpvisitor24> OF 1017 wc ie
10:52:35 <Eric> Morning
10:52:43 <Eric> is Grand ie or is that just really steamy?
10:52:53 <Kevin L™> Steamy
10:52:59 <Dave from B> Turban?
10:53:09 <Kevin L™> Probably Turban
10:53:40 <Kevin L™> Grand and Castle should be soon.
10:53:50 <Kevin L™> BH has been splashing a bit.
10:54:03 <Kevin L™> Film at 11.
10:57:52 <ynpvisitor85> is that a prediction? 11?
10:59:04 <Eric> BH 16:07 +- 25m
10:59:25 <Kevin L™> I think Grand will be closer to 1130
11:00:32 <Eric> Averages over last 4 say Grand @ 11:28 +- 20m
11:10:27 <Kevin L™> Looks like Grotto now.
11:10:42 <ynpvisitor85> Little Cub ?
11:10:52 <Kevin L™> I think everything is waiting to go at once.
11:11:09 <Eric> yep...another nice LC!
11:11:12 <Kevin L™> Yep
11:11:32 <Kevin L™> Graham had it twice last night,
11:11:52 <Eric> Nice! I hope it sticks around and erupts more
11:12:45 <Kevin L™> Good splashes on BH too.
11:13:12 <Eric> oblong might be ie as well
11:13:50 <Eric> Looks like a good day for a sunburn at the park.
11:13:52 <Kevin L™> Either that or Turban.
11:14:09 <Eric> Seems a little large/long for turban
11:14:27 <Kevin L™> 20m since the last thing that looked like Turban.
11:23:22 <Eric> that looks like turban to me
11:28:45 <Kevin L™> Castle
11:31:17 <ynpvisitor27> Grand
11:31:31 <Eric> boom
11:35:35 <ynpvisitor27> I never get tired of watching that plume rise up
11:37:03 <Eric> It's pretty awesome
11:37:20 <Eric> Trying to decide if I am going to drive or fly into bozeman and rent a car...hmmmm
11:37:54 <ynpvisitor603> How many days Eric?
11:38:10 <Eric> 7 on this first trip in May
11:38:27 <Eric> I missed last making up for it with a couple trips this year :-D
11:38:40 <ynpvisitor603> I'm looking at rental rates right now, which is why I ask.
11:38:59 <ynpvisitor27> Graham saw LC 4 times yesterday btw
11:39:06 <Eric> ahhh, I always book my car through costco
11:39:42 <ynpvisitor27> it would save you 2 days time Eric
11:40:04 <ynpvisitor27> depends on time vs money
11:41:00 <ynpvisitor27> nice 2nd!
11:41:12 <ynpvisitor27> that was tall
11:41:20 <ynpvisitor603> I'm seeing around $30 - $47 with my corp rate
11:41:25 <Eric> well, it's about 13hour drive....2.5 hours of flying
11:41:38 <Betty> at least the 2nd burst
11:41:43 <Jimbo Tellurium> great 2nd
11:42:00 <Betty> Dome ie
11:42:01 <ynpvisitor27> yes, Eric, I figure 13 hour drive each way takes away two full days
11:42:01 <Jimbo Tellurium> about 9.5 minute mark
11:42:07 <Eric> Actually it's 9 days total...not 7 :-P
11:42:37 <ynpvisitor27> oh, hmmm, that changes it up a little
11:42:40 <Betty> hi all, btw
11:42:50 <Eric> $275 for 9 days or about $30/day
11:42:55 <Eric> Hi Betty
11:43:07 <ynpvisitor603> Unlimited mileage?
11:43:09 <ynpvisitor27> when you get a car through Costco, is it still picked up at airport?
11:43:18 <Eric> free extra driver if I want
11:43:27 <Eric> airport
11:43:33 <ynpvisitor27> where are you staying in May?
11:43:48 <Eric> I have done a lot of car rentals....I never really check anybody but costco now
11:43:51 <Betty> hi Eric
11:43:53 <Eric> cabins
11:44:08 <ynpvisitor27> so you would need 2 more days reservations?
11:44:27 <Eric> No...I have 5/25-6/3 booked
11:44:48 <Eric> I do need try and ask for a front cabin though
11:44:56 <Eric> Not one of the newer ones
11:44:59 <ynpvisitor27> so Memorial Day time...
11:45:05 <Eric> Yep
11:45:13 <Eric> OF
11:45:31 <ynpvisitor27> sounds like flying might not be so bad, is the flight reasonable?
11:45:55 <Eric> I can do the flight for I am thinking this would be a smart move :-D
11:46:00 <ynpvisitor27> you can hardly drive for $275 plus wear and tear on the car
11:46:19 <Eric> Not sure if wife is coming or not yet
11:46:19 <Betty> Daisy
11:46:23 <Eric> daisy
11:46:25 <Eric> :-D
11:46:33 <ynpvisitor27> cost wise, it sounds like it. Your own car holds more stuff, there is that
11:46:41 <ynpvisitor603> Eric we'll be there 5/26-6/4
11:46:41 <Betty> again all at once
11:46:52 <Eric> Awesome!
11:47:08 <ynpvisitor27> 603, when are you gazing?
11:47:12 <Eric> I now have a NUC setup :-)
11:48:03 <Eric> I really want to get one of the cheap chinese radios with detachable antennas to use in my room.
11:48:37 <ynpvisitor27> why in your room?
11:48:49 <Eric> Put a suction cup mount antenna on my window.
11:49:09 <Eric> Better range for picking up broadcasts....regular radio is fine for carrying around.
11:49:24 <ynpvisitor27> you think you will miss something with your regular radio?
11:50:35 <Eric> Maybe....when inside cabin the range seems super limited on those radios.
11:50:51 <ynpvisitor27> I've never heard anyone had issues
11:51:48 <ynpvisitor603> Any radio where you can swap the antenna is gonna have some better range from say down by F&M then a rubber ducky GMRS/FRS radio
11:52:16 <ynpvisitor603> Baofeng is now making a GMRS/FRS radio that is certified
11:52:36 <ynpvisitor603>
11:53:13 <ynpvisitor27> people have been listening to F & M calls in their cabins for years with the old ones
11:53:42 <ynpvisitor603> Without a need for "relay" calls?
11:53:50 <ynpvisitor27> that's a good price on that radio
11:54:16 <ynpvisitor27> oh, that is true 603
11:54:19 <Betty> Dome
11:54:33 <ynpvisitor27> sometimes they do need relays, depending on who is calling the cycle
11:55:03 <Eric> They must have made the antenna non-removable...I think the only way it could be certified.
11:55:33 <ynpvisitor603> With the right radio/antenna combo you can transmit from Fountain observation platform to UGB when the stars align right ;)
11:56:19 <Eric> That is what I was hoping for with external antenna in the cabin...being able to receive really, really well :-D
11:56:53 <ynpvisitor603>
11:57:59 <ynpvisitor603> Looks like it might be antenna upgradable as well
11:58:07 <ynpvisitor603> "Although upgraded antennas are readily available, I found the included antenna performs very well.'
11:58:39 <Dave from B> Being able to hear LGB reports would be really nice. GF overflow reports would be great
11:59:25 <Eric> Just being able to hear the bottom part of UGB would be awesome :-D
11:59:26 <Betty> Castle is a major
11:59:48 <ynpvisitor21> I use to relay calls in the middle of the night, because the lower portion of the cabin area couldn't hear calls from F & M and Giant
11:59:52 <Eric> unless it's wills radio...I rarely could make out calls from down basin
12:00:16 <Dave from B> What does will use?
12:00:21 <ynpvisitor39> It does not look all that great. You can not send texts, call to order pizza, or look up stuff on the net when waiting for Aurum.
12:00:26 <Eric> bofang I believe
12:01:04 <ynpvisitor603> UV-5R with the extended battery
12:01:20 <Eric> there ya go :-D
12:01:27 <Dave from B> Does gosa store sell radios and flashlights?
12:01:30 <ynpvisitor21> Hi Will
12:01:35 <Eric> Those high wattage radios suck the batteries
12:01:57 <Dave from B> 603 is not Will
12:02:53 <ynpvisitor21> Hi Art
12:03:09 <Art> So the new GMRS-V1 is what folks should get if they want a high powered radio (5 watts) and be 100% FCC compliant ;)
12:03:35 <Art> It's the ability to output at 5 watts plus the better antenna that gets you that "little extra" range
12:03:42 <Art> Hi Kitt :)
12:04:43 <Kitt> Hey Dave our front lawn is clear
12:04:59 <Kitt> back lawn still has up to 2 feet in the shaded area
12:05:06 <Art> We use a Baofeng UV-82C (Commercial) which looks identical to the UV-82 and UV-82HP since we also broadcoast on a business band frequency at times
12:05:07 <ynpvisitor39> Mine has weeds
12:06:38 <Art> This is the long distance antenna
12:06:40 <Art>
12:07:07 <Kitt> so Beehive went before I got back on the computer last night and posted the 2327ie Grand
12:07:32 <Kitt> there were several numbers in the chat room, but they weren't posting anything
12:08:10 <ynpvisitor27> sometimes people are signed on, yet not there
12:08:37 <Art> I contemplated writing an article about radio tech stuff for the SPUT but it's kinda of a weird grey area....
12:08:54 <ynpvisitor27> you should
12:09:11 <Kitt> I want to get the regular length, since the long whip is too long
12:09:21 <Eric> I think people would enjoy reading it Art.
12:09:46 <Kitt> look at all of the research you did on flashlights Art
12:09:59 <Art> I have these too for just kicking around the basin:
12:10:14 <Dave from B> Now that "everyone" is here, I have a couple of Yellowstone Gazetta article links to post....brb
12:10:32 <Art> That new flashlight is so much fun :)
12:11:02 <Dave from B>
12:12:03 <Art> I forget exactly which color variant Will has but it's basically a UV-5R with an extended battery in a different color
12:12:04 <Art>
12:12:28 <Kitt> now how do you fly with your radio?
12:12:30 <Art> Extended battery is a nice feature for long days in basin
12:12:46 <Kitt> do you have to put it in your checked bag, but carry on your battery?
12:12:54 <Dave from B>
12:13:01 <Art> I bring all the tech carry on
12:13:25 <Betty> Dome
12:13:27 <Art> They never have had a problem with the flash light, I separate the batteries and put them in a separate case
12:13:45 <Art> Same thing with the radio and even the "weird radio device" I made last year which looks super sketchy
12:14:07 <Art> However, I did get my bag searched because I had an IR temperature gauge last february
12:14:19 <Art> Didn't realize how much like a gun/stun gun it looks
12:15:25 <Kitt> this year when we flew United and Alaska Air, it showed radios were not permitted
12:15:31 <Kitt> I was just wondering
12:19:48 <Art> So never had an issue, fingers crossed, checking on some of the HAM radio message boards folks have never had issues either
12:23:00 <Art> Thanks Dave for the links
12:23:51 <Art> We get a free checked bag on Delta so we're pretty flexible about where gear goes if needed though... So if they change the rules we will put it in checked bagage
12:24:10 <Dave from B> You bet...sorry to butt into your conversation but wanted to put them here before I forgot.
12:24:46 <ynpvisitor39> Art, you are not kidding radios are confusing. This date, that date, future date. Removable antenna, different powers.
12:25:26 <ynpvisitor39> Time to scrap the old ones I have that hardly work.
12:25:32 <Art> For 99% of Gazers a super simple "bubble pack" GMRS/FRS radio is perfect
12:25:44 <Eric> That certified GMRS radio art linked looks pretty sweet, if I can confirm the antenna is removable...going to grab one before my trip.
12:26:05 <ynpvisitor39> As long as it was made after 2017?
12:26:53 <Art> But if you want to get a little more range, flexibility, battery life, etc, then a Baofeng or other radio is a nice gadget
12:27:01 <Eric> is removable
12:27:49 <Art> With the "fancier" radios you can program them to basically act like a scanner so you can listen (not transmit) to other things like Park rangers, NOAA weather, wolf watchers, etc.
12:28:07 <Dave from B> Art, you should do a radio article for the sput. It may encourage a few people to upgrade....I can see us communicating between LGB and UGB already
12:28:45 <Art> Biggest issue is "line of sight"
12:29:02 <Art> But I can usually hear the LGB up to Mallard Creek
12:29:07 <ynpvisitor19> No one posted Grand
12:29:11 <Art> Then don't pick it up again for a little while
12:29:40 <ynpvisitor39> I do not have to worry about baggage, checked or carry on. i did elect not to drive through the Los Alamo proving grounds.
12:29:52 <Art> There's a huge hill/mountain just east of Midway that blocks anything transmitted from say Great Fountain
12:30:29 <Art> But from the Fountain platform/overlook you can (With the right antenna/radio) hit the UGB
12:31:26 <ynpvisitor39> The gazette does not like me. Like I would read the adds and by stuff from Billings?
12:32:31 <ynpvisitor39> I can just see gazers walking around with directional antenna on a stick looking like wolf trackers.
12:33:02 <ynpvisitor39> Are wolf collars in the scanner range?
12:33:28 <Art> No and it's "illegal" to track them if you could

12:36:12 <Betty> I´m really lagged
12:36:20 <ynpvisitor39> :bee: is the one you were looking for
12:36:39 <Betty> woot
12:36:42 <Dave from B> Betty, try some coffee...that will get you back up to speed
12:36:53 <Kitt> Hello Bee
12:36:53 <Jimbo Tellurium> Early and no INdy, eh?
12:36:56 <Eric> wowza...didn't expect that!
12:37:02 <Betty> I already had one
12:37:06 <Eric> thanks for the txt
12:37:10 <Kevin L™> .Rainbow
12:37:35 <Betty> man, this one looks great
12:37:38 <Eric> 13.5h BH
12:37:39 <Kitt> Rats missed start
12:37:55 <ynpvisitor39> Lion would be a nice addition
12:37:57 <Kitt> was looking at regulations for radios on planes
12:38:05 <Kevin L™> Eric can rewind it for you Kitt
12:38:24 <Kitt> at least I am lagged so still enjoying it
12:38:48 <ynpvisitor39> Now indy show up
12:38:50 <Kevin L™> I was looking at it and got a big splash then it kept getting bigger!
12:39:08 <ynpvisitor39> Kevin broke it
12:39:14 <Eric> dang....the stream repeater I have up keeps crashing :-(
12:39:15 <Kitt> indy
12:39:26 <Eric> and it's gone now
12:39:39 <Jimbo Tellurium> A little late to the party, pal
12:40:00 <Kitt> it pays to be lagged
12:40:05 <Kitt> still enjoying the bee
12:41:13 <Eric> Going to be a boring afternoon!
12:41:32 <Kitt> I thought maybe bee would shorten up
12:41:45 <Eric> It sure did!
12:41:51 <Kitt> I put off going on my walk
12:41:57 <Kitt> but now I am free
12:42:13 <Kitt> have a nice day all
12:42:28 <Kevin L™> You too Kitt
12:42:31 <Kitt> it is in the 40's outside
12:42:46 <Betty> Dome
12:54:00 <Jimbo Tellurium> Signing off to attend a Webinar
13:18:01 <ynpvisitor2> you should send those links to the gazer group listserve whatever they call it Dave from B
13:23:10 <Betty> OF
13:24:02 <Kevin L™> Did you get a start on that Betty?
13:24:40 <Betty> my lag is about 30 sec and it was in full height
13:25:01 <Betty> early 1322 I think
13:25:05 <Kevin L™> I had it ie at 1322
13:25:42 <Kevin L™> I dropped my stylus and when I came back up it was ie.
13:26:02 <Kevin L™> Early 1322 is probably right
13:28:06 <ynpvisitor39> I just read the park rules.
13:28:23 <ynpvisitor39> We brake a few of them.
13:29:45 <ynpvisitor39> What is a "pack-like container" in regard to food at thermal areas?
13:31:15 <ynpvisitor39> And don't get caught eating a salad.
13:32:24 <Kevin L™> I have eaten wild strawberries and raspberries. I bet there is a rule against that.
13:34:06 <ynpvisitor39> The rule about plants and plant materials is so poorly written it should apply to salad.
13:34:53 <ynpvisitor39> I did not see anything about collecting in the supers rules, I bet it is in the general fed rules.
13:36:35 <ynpvisitor39> I correct myself. Obsidian Cliff is listed specifically for collecting artifacts. I guess the rest of the park is under the general rules.
13:37:48 <Kevin L™> Little cub
13:37:56 <ynpvisitor39> I know I have violated the 25 yard rule. I have been close to birds lots of times and not turned to leave.
13:38:17 <Art> No smoking in all thermal areas
13:38:32 <Eric> Thank goodness!
13:38:37 <ynpvisitor39> How far are the marmots at Grand?
13:39:07 <Betty> I usually get close to Bees
13:39:13 <Kevin L™> I had marmots under my cabin once. Should I have moved?
13:39:33 <Eric> 153ft
13:39:49 <Eric> from the front bench in the center :-D
13:39:57 <Art>
13:40:00 <ynpvisitor39> I think they leave out insects. Yes Kevin, you werei n violation.
13:40:02 <Eric> You are double the necessary distance.
13:40:12 <Art> "always remain at least 100 yards (91 meters) from bears or wolves, and at least 25 yards (23 meters) from all other wildlife."
13:40:15 <Eric> woops...nope
13:40:38 <Eric> ohh, yes I was right the first time.
13:42:57 <ynpvisitor39> I feel better now about the marmots. If they could just keep the ravens 75 feet away, that would be half the battle.
13:43:52 <Kevin L™> And those pesky chipmonks.
13:44:41 <ynpvisitor39> Chipmunks are not animals, they are entertainers.
13:47:26 <ynpvisitor39>
13:47:29 <ynpvisitor39> Got to go
13:49:02 <Betty> Riverside
14:27:12 <Ryan> Kevin - she flew great
14:27:25 <Kevin L™> Daisy
14:27:28 <Betty> Daisy
14:27:30 <Ryan> 25,540ft, Mach 2.02. Let me get you a link to a photo of the bird going transonic.
14:27:33 <Kevin L™> Great Ryan. Video?
14:27:35 <Ryan> I got the vapor cones!
14:27:42 <Kevin L™> :)
14:27:49 <Kevin L™> :thumbsup:
14:28:50 <Kevin L™> We were just talking about you the other day.
14:29:10 <Ryan> Anything bad you said is completely true.
14:29:18 <Betty> congrats, Ryan
14:30:14 <Kevin L™> We were talking about pictures and I was telling them that I knew a guy who still used flashbulbs.
14:30:49 <Ryan> Oh, well thats good - maybe its not true!
14:31:28 <Ryan>
14:31:40 <Dave from B> Ryan, what's next up in your space/rocket future?
14:31:50 <Ryan> Freebird at 2,700ft (roughly) and passing through Mach 0.85 (roughly).
14:32:00 <Kevin L™> I always wondered what those railroad engineers thought when they hit O Winston Link's array of flashbulbs.
14:32:00 <Ryan> Work somewhere in Huntsville Alabama and go caving :)
14:34:03 <Kevin L™> That is a pretty cool shot. Bet it was loud. Love the flames.
14:35:11 <Kevin L™> How tall is that rocket?
14:35:46 <Ryan> Very loud - 13.5ft long and 105lbm at launch
14:37:03 <Kevin L™> Fun to see all that work finally go into action. I take it the recovery also went well.
14:38:31 <Eric> lion
14:38:40 <Dave from B> Lion 1438
14:38:48 <Betty> yay
14:39:32 <Jimbo Tellurium> Nice to see Lion
14:39:45 <Kevin L™> BTW Ryan, we have been getting Little Cubs the last few days.
14:40:20 <Ryan> I dont think anyones caught a vapor cone on an amateur rocket before...
14:40:22 <Ryan> I saw that!
14:41:12 <Kevin L™> I have never seen that.
14:42:08 <Betty> OF
14:42:17 <Betty> on static
14:42:43 <Betty> or my view is frozen
14:42:46 <ynpvisitor44> we missed it
14:42:53 <ynpvisitor44> no, it is mostly over
14:43:23 <Eric> All I seem to see are ads on the image you linked :-(
14:43:39 <Dave from B> you talking about my links?
14:43:56 <Kevin L™> You selling sausage now Dave?
14:44:13 <Eric> Ryan's image link
14:44:39 <Dave from B> nope, no links here
14:45:34 <Kevin L™> Cajun shrimps sausage. You could start a new trend!
14:47:15 <Dave from B> Must be spring...first live crawfish order arriving Friday
14:47:45 <Kevin L™> Crawfish would go good in the Cajun sausage too!
14:48:19 <Kevin L™> Do you have a big market for crawfish Dave?
14:49:49 <Dave from B> Not really. Customers can order it online from the same vendors I use.
14:50:39 <Dave from B> We do have a lot of petroleum industry workers around here from the South so we do get requests.
14:50:52 <Dave from B> 3 refineries in the county
14:51:22 <Kevin L™> That would make sense. Those guys seem to just love their crawdads!
14:55:58 <Kevin L™> We had this big Indian that would carry a 4x4 on the firing point. Next thing you knew he was in hot pursuit of an armadillo. He would smack the thing and then pop it out of its shell and BBQ it on a fire pit he made.
14:56:52 <Graham> hello
14:57:04 <Graham> ooh Dome is active today, nice
14:57:20 <Kevin L™> I asked my coworker if anybody said anything to him about it. His response was "Would you?".
14:57:32 <Kevin L™> Hi Graham.
14:58:22 <Eric> Alright car and flight booked...woot :-D
14:58:28 <Graham> i have eaten crawfish, you pull of the head and throw it away, pull off the tail and throw it away, then order a steak
14:59:02 <Graham> for when Eric?
14:59:13 <Kevin L™> Sounds like my thinking Graham.
14:59:17 <Eric> 5/25-6/3 9 days in the cabins
14:59:32 <Kevin L™> That's Indy 500 weekend.
14:59:35 <Dave from B> Graham, there isn't much to eat, that's for sure
14:59:39 <Graham> nice. hope the snow has gone then
15:00:04 <Eric> Never know....have to bring shorts and snow jacket.
15:00:40 <Graham> i am still hoping for a Mem Day trip but depends on work
15:01:02 <Kevin L™> You have to do that in July too Eric!
15:01:15 <Eric> I am doing it again in August :-D
15:01:26 <Eric> Can't do it every month or I would
15:02:11 <Graham> may not need shorts in Jan tho
15:02:50 <Eric> Just really thick socks Graham
15:06:09 <Graham> was it a no indi BH today?
15:06:29 <Kevin L™> Yes
15:07:00 <Kevin L™> Indy did make a showing but late
15:07:21 <Betty> oh, forgot to mention that
15:07:28 <Graham> ok. hopefully Betty can add that comment to it
15:07:47 <Betty> already done :-)
15:08:05 <Graham> thanks
15:08:16 <Graham> dome
15:09:08 <Graham> dome initial is on my wish list this year
15:21:06 <Dave from B> I wish there was a trail to Dome
15:28:09 <Kevin L™> Click your heels three times and repeat "There's no place like Dome".
15:29:19 <Betty> Dorothy from B? :-D

15:30:38 <Graham> dome should be coming up
15:30:44 <Kevin L™> Your dog looks like Toto.
15:30:48 <Betty> hahaha, no, not at all
15:31:20 <Dave from B> haha Kevin...I suppose my dogs are closer to Toto than I am to Dorothy
15:32:03 <Dave from B> I can't believe we're even talking about dog #3....might as well start a new business
15:32:52 <Kevin L™> Is Becca coming back for Spring break?
15:34:12 <Dave from B> She is home now...been here since Saturday...leaving Saturday

15:35:24 <Kevin L™> That is an early Spring break.
15:35:46 <Dave from B> Only 28 days of school remaining when she returns
15:36:48 <Kevin L™> Wow. That was a quick first year.
15:37:48 <Dave from B> Sure was
15:43:14 <ynpvisitor44> do you know how many dogs you can have Dave?
15:43:30 <ynpvisitor44> and it is crazy, if you think about it, how little college students really attend class
15:45:40 <Graham> we are ready for the Aurum Dome dual
15:48:42 <Dave from B> 44, I don't know how many dogs I'm allowed
15:49:18 <Dave from B> For Becca's 19 credits she attends 24 hours of instruction per week

17:42:40 <Eric> The predictable geyser that is totally unpredicatable :-D
17:43:26 <Eric> It had a really late weird second the other day
17:44:31 <Graham> how late?
17:45:00 <Eric> like 11 or 12 minutes like this one
17:45:24 <Graham> dome
17:45:45 <Eric> But my data is pretty limited compared to yours :-D
17:46:32 <Graham> some years it doesnt do tham that lats, bt its good now
17:46:43 <Graham> short intervals dont matter for extra bursts
17:47:03 <Graham> would be nice to see more 3b
17:47:16 <Graham> and 4 and 5
17:47:22 <Eric> I don't remember seeing seconds after 10 minutes before these ones
17:47:36 <Eric> The norm seemed to be around 8 minutes last year
17:47:56 <Graham> yeah 7 or 8 and its pretty much a sure bet
17:48:09 <Graham> of
17:49:38 <Graham> this winter when the pool was full it would erupt ... last year it didnt mean anything
