22:37:09 <Michael> Looks like everyone took the evening off from real-time posting to GT. There will be a lot of gaps to fill in from webcam captures.
22:48:35 < Joe´> my captures are now posted

03:35:09 < Joe´> Rift report in basin JimS
03:36:29 <Rice> I think it is warmer in UGB than in Upstate NY this morning!
03:40:11 < Joe´> Chilly in the East? It is 66° in my part of WY
03:42:51 < Joe´> Norris seismic monitor shows no activity
03:53:26 < Joe´> OF
03:54:37 <Rice> This weekend we are suppose to have record heat, and I am leaving my pool, and going to the amusement park with my family.
03:54:50 <Rice> What is wrong with my head.
03:59:44 <Dave from BH> Good morning everyone
04:06:26 < Joe´> Hi Dave at BH
04:07:12 < Joe´> You had a good day yesterday?
04:07:44 < Joe´> had=have*
04:14:30 <Rice> Sun is starting to poke through on the hill west of the basin
04:49:11 < Joe´> DAISY
05:41:17 <Betty> I like "Dave from BH" :-)
05:41:42 <Betty> please wave to us Dave
05:42:21 <Rice> We lost him, not sure if he is back
05:42:57 <Betty> No BH yet, so I think he´s still there. Morning Rice
05:43:27 <Rice> Afternoon, Betty.
05:44:32 <Rice> ANy discussion yesterday about the data loggers not working?
05:45:21 < Joe´> Yes it was noticed by Eric
05:46:46 <Dave from BH> Was at grand now back at bee
05:46:47 <ynpvisitor73> BH knows Dave is there. Maybe it was waiting for Kevin to show up too
05:47:05 <Dave from BH> I have 1 point:)
05:47:09 <Betty> wave
05:47:17 <Dave from BH> Kevin is here
05:48:03 <Dave from BH> Some are having problems with gt this morning
05:48:04 <Betty> what did you do to Steamboat?
05:49:04 <Dave from BH> Blame that on the disturbance
05:49:13 <Betty> will do
05:49:41 < Joe´> Gt has been flakey/slow to respond for at least a day
05:50:02 <Betty> need to hurry to the train, good luck with BH. Say Hello to Kevin+Becca. bbl
05:50:14 < Joe´> that is on Android
05:51:05 < Joe´> Computer interface works just fine
05:53:48 <Dave from BH> Thanks
06:14:11 <Dave from BH> Close to cone just started bubbling
06:21:33 <Dave from BH> Water in indy
06:25:39 <ynpvisitor2> LC
06:30:44 <Betty> Yay
06:30:53 <ynpvisitor39> So which one is Dave
06:33:47 <Betty> I think left hand of jim
06:34:17 <ynpvisitor39> Which one is Jim?
06:34:56 <Betty> Haha
06:35:06 <ynpvisitor2> Is Becca the girl in red with back pack and Dave behind
06:35:27 <Betty> Directly at bh cone
06:35:38 <ynpvisitor2> yep
06:35:58 <rice2> Thanks. Nice to put a face with names
06:36:27 <Betty> You can see faces ?
06:36:52 <rice2> Well not really
06:37:22 <rice2> Especially now!
06:38:04 <Betty> I think becca has a green backpack
06:38:30 <Jimbo Bismuth> This start has a lot of character
06:38:36 <Betty> Just in time before the tunnel
06:39:12 <ynpvisitor43> Good crew for the first thing in the morning.
06:42:38 <ynpvisitor43> Thanks for the text as always.
06:45:35 <ynpvisitor94> bummed to miss BH!
06:46:45 <Betty> :-( 94
06:47:14 <ynpvisitor70> maybe another before dark
08:04:30 <Eric> Morning
09:07:28 <ynpvisitor87> North entrance cam. Are they now preventing people from butting in line by cutting through the admin area?
09:08:53 <ynpvisitor87> Also looks like they have turned both lanes of the Arch Road into inbound lanes
09:09:31 <ynpvisitor87> Nope, I see the buttinskies have returned
09:23:27 <ynpvisitor70> I resemble a buttinski
09:27:20 <Rice> I am so glad I come in the east entrance from Cody.
09:28:32 <ynpvisitor70> they should cover up the employees and deliveries only sign at North entrance they are giving conflicting messages there!
09:38:42 <Eric> castle
10:04:52 <Betty> hi all
10:05:21 <Betty> OF
10:06:09 <ynpvisitor39> Did they ever finish the new boardwalk?
10:06:42 <Betty> I think it is done
10:06:52 <Betty> there are even benches
10:08:46 <ynpvisitor87> Good evening Betty. Always good to see you pop up (Kent)
10:09:00 <Betty> hi Kent
10:09:52 <Rice> Any idea why the loggers in Norris are not working?
10:10:39 <Betty> nope
10:10:54 <ynpvisitor87> Good summer crowd. Static packed
10:31:02 <Betty> new Steamboat note on gt
10:32:55 <Joe´> SB is not finished yet!! :)
10:33:30 <Betty> hopefully not!
10:41:15 <ynpvisitor47> do not put too much into that note
10:41:54 <ynpvisitor47> cistern is not in full overflow from other reports, more like drooling
10:42:30 <ynpvisitor47> I am glad to hear Barbara is seeing improvements, yet it could be a LONG wait
10:47:03 <Eric> Per Barbara: Cistern boiling and in overflow
10:47:36 <ynpvisitor47> one person's overflow is another person's drooling is all I'm saying.
10:47:38 <Eric> But sounds like it's definitely not in the constant push like it was doing previously
10:47:56 <ynpvisitor47> the overflow is a result of the boil, not any true overflow
10:47:59 <Eric> Thanks 47....I appreciate your observations :-D
10:48:27 <ynpvisitor47> observations of Steamboat watchers that were passed on in conversation
10:48:48 <Eric> Got it....hmm, I am curious if the logger will detect any of this push/pull of cistern
10:49:04 <ynpvisitor47> craziest thing today is TSB on the Google group saying there may have been a 3 day interval once back in the day
10:49:26 <ynpvisitor47> Barbara has not seen Steamboat
10:50:02 <ynpvisitor47> did you see that Eric, from TSB?
10:50:52 <Eric> Yes....Wonder if it could have been like the restart behavior we have seen during this series...where it goes back into water phase, but just taking longer to do that.
10:52:02 <ynpvisitor47> since it was off logger data and not observed, maybe so
10:52:37 <Betty> nothing on Bill´s wildlife cam?
10:52:43 <Eric> I would be curious to see the actual logger data
10:53:10 <ynpvisitor47> This is from years ago Betty
10:53:34 <Betty> oh, thx
10:53:55 <ynpvisitor47> you should become part of the Google group
10:54:01 <Eric> 2003
10:54:36 <ynpvisitor47> they have been discussing missing GT eruptions, possibly, of Steamboat in years gone by
10:55:02 <Betty> I see
10:56:29 <Emily> time for grand
10:56:47 <Emily> hi
10:57:00 <Betty> hi Emily
11:05:28 <Betty> LC ie
11:15:47 <Eric> SC was active a few times yesterday....keep your eyes open there.
11:16:27 <Betty> I did not see even steam out of it today
11:17:15 <Betty> we need to watch for Lion too
11:18:12 <Eric> grand
11:18:14 <Eric> booom
11:18:23 <Eric> Not in the OF window either!
11:18:30 <Betty> I´m lagged
11:18:36 <Betty> now
11:18:39 <Eric> :-D
11:21:51 <Joe´> very windy back there
11:22:11 <Joe´> maybe
11:22:56 <Rice> Been a nice day to be in he Basin, Beehive, Daisy, Castle and Grand, all spaced nicely.
11:24:17 <Emily> steamboat is sort of recovering now that the disturbance also seems to be slowing I wonder what that means
11:29:45 <Betty> LC
11:35:04 <Betty> OF
11:52:26 <ynpvisitor70> ambulance
11:52:55 <Betty> not good
11:55:58 <Betty> time to get some sleep, night all
11:56:18 <Joe´> night Betty
12:26:46 <ynpvisitor...> I see static still like its afternoon crash
12:58:59 <Eric> Faisy
12:59:19 <ynpvisitor60> Sideways
13:18:22 <Eric> OF ie
13:50:22 <ynpvisitor59> Lion ini
13:51:55 <ynpvisitor999®> quite wind-blown
13:52:27 <Eric> Everyone must be a norris
13:54:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Next Lion @ 1710 ± 10m if series continues
13:56:36 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
13:58:34 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, it seems Lion's intervals in series follow an inverted exponential function, especially in the case of minors
13:59:38 <Eric> Would love to see the graphs on that
13:59:56 <ynpvisitor999®> so if that formula can be found, I think Lion will be quite predictable during series
14:00:46 <ynpvisitor999®> as for the graph, you can find it in the Advanced Statistics part of Lion in the GT app
14:01:39 <ynpvisitor999®> (I do have to note I downloaded 1 year of additional data)
14:04:00 <ynpvisitor999®> meaning the last date in my data is somewhere end April/half-way May 2017
14:04:53 <Eric> Are you saying the number of eruptions follow the function?
14:05:52 <ynpvisitor999®> the duration of the eruption determines, with a margin of ~10m, the following interval
14:07:57 <ynpvisitor999®> so during a series, the following interval can be determined using the function when the duration is known (and if Lion continues its series)
14:30:33 <Eric> Hmmm, can't you predict it within about 5 minutes with pretty good margin of error by just saying it's an hour?
14:32:05 <ynpvisitor999®> pretty much, yeah, but for minors it could be nice to have some kind of predictability if you have the duration
14:33:17 <Eric> So the same function can be used when you have a minor?
14:33:57 <ynpvisitor999®> yes. Hold on for a sec, going to grab my phone in the hope I can find the formula using the data points
14:37:08 <Joe´> OF
14:43:12 <ynpvisitor57> ynpvisitor999 that would be a great write up in the sput or on the listserve!
14:43:18 <ynpvisitor57> for Lion that is.
15:08:18 <ynpvisitor84> Lion ie
15:39:28 <ynpvisitor84> daisy
15:51:33 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... according to Google Spreadsheets, the (flawed) exponential function for Lion would be 0.0845 + 0.0215 ln(x)
15:52:45 <ynpvisitor40> What is that a formula for?
15:52:52 <ynpvisitor999®> where x is the duration converted to regular numbers
15:54:03 <ynpvisitor999®> that is roughly the formula for Lion's interval following an eruption which has been timed
15:55:16 <ynpvisitor40> Hold on, I'd better read the chatlog and get caught up.
16:00:51 <ynpvisitor40> OK. I'm still in the dark about the units involved, but I have some idea of what the interval vs. duration data should look like.
16:01:32 <ynpvisitor999®> It's still vague for me (as I am terrible with maths), but hopefully it clears up for me soon-ish
16:01:35 <Eric> So is x = duration minutes?
16:02:44 <Eric> ohh, no durations on the last few lions :-(
16:03:58 <Eric> alright...gotta take off, have a good evening
16:10:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll work on it tomorrow, hopefully.
16:15:30 <ynpvisitor40> Lion
16:15:58 <ynpvisitor4> Time it for 999
16:16:21 <ynpvisitor999®> was grabbing some food, so I couldn't start the timer :(
16:16:48 <ynpvisitor4> My stream is froze, so I am no help
16:17:38 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
16:19:51 <ynpvisitor40> Lion was 2 minutes and about 50 seconds.
16:22:27 <ynpvisitor999®> now it's waiting on the next Lion. If the series continues, it's a usable time, else it's useless, as the formula doesn't work then
17:21:35 <ynpvisitor40> All right Grand, it's showtime!
17:54:44 <ynpvisitor21> Beehive in the moonlight tonight
17:56:59 <ynpvisitor23> Will Dave from B be there?
17:58:00 <ynpvisitor40> If Dave plans on waiting for a moonlight Beehive, it might go early instead.
17:58:16 <ynpvisitor21> :)
18:23:37 <ynpvisitor40> grand
19:27:31 <Dave from OF> Good evening everyone

19:40:22 <Joe´> Yes, barely but I'm good now:)
19:41:03 <Dave from ynp> We can hear old faithful crowd right now from our room
19:41:36 <Dave from ynp> And we are5 or 6 cabins away

19:47:54 <Joe´> While we were chatting with you in Livingston F&M erupted, I bet you thought I was pulling your leg
19:48:23 <Dave from ynp> Haha I checked gt
19:48:55 <Dave from ynp> That’s my luck with the big 3 this year
19:49:40 <Joe´> 5 days left anything can happen

20:16:30 <ynpvisitor84> :bee:
20:47:09 <ynpvisitor91> What? No in basin BH report? Dave is slacking! I thought a moonlit BH was on his bucket list? No Kitt?
20:47:32 <ynpvisitor91> No Donnie? Hmmm
20:52:10 <ynpvisitor76> Figured Kevin would be out looking for bears.
