08:04:35 <Bill> Morning
08:05:27 <ynpvisitor39> mornin'
08:07:40 <ynpvisitor81> saw that new unng near pump at 0605, (i think)
08:48:52 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a large Bee surge
08:52:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
08:52:47 <Kevin L™> Wow. Big burst
08:57:10 <ynpvisitor999®> HK uploaded a video of the Geyser Hill disturbance on 16-19th on his blog

09:00:06 <Kevin L™> Nice plume on it
09:00:23 <Kevin L™> Good statice shot too
09:00:37 <ynpvisitor39> is HK using the term disturbance?
09:00:54 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, for Geyser Hill
09:01:40 <ynpvisitor39> interesting - will check it out
09:07:24 <Bill> Woo! Finally caught a timelapse of Cistern filling during the day! 9/19/2018
09:08:30 <ynpvisitor999®> nice!
09:08:52 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like OF is in for a celebration :)
09:10:05 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, if you were at Cistern this morning, how full is it roughly?
09:10:37 <Bill> I wasnt. Yesterday it was completely drained. I imagine if it's not full right now it's darn close
09:10:49 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks anyway :)
09:11:39 <ynpvisitor39> Great Bill! Glad it was in daylight. :)
09:12:46 <Bill> Me too! It's been frustrating to only see it drain on timelapse. Honestly a lot of that was user error with the cameras lol
09:13:30 <ynpvisitor39> haha - glad it was successful this time. :thumbsup:
09:13:47 <Bill> I have a good system going at Ear and the new feature that I may implement at Steamboat and Cistern. Saves a lot of battery life.
09:14:52 <ynpvisitor39> good job
09:17:11 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
09:25:44 <Bill> It's time for Good News, Bad News from Bill!
09:26:14 <Bill> Just got a call from our media guy and he wants to do a facebook live broadcast from UGB talking about all the new activity at some point.
09:26:30 <Bill> Bad news is, I dont think there's any way we have good enough conductivity to make it happen.
09:26:48 <ynpvisitor39> and the bad news? You have to leave in 1 min?
09:26:55 <ynpvisitor53> conductivity = connection bandwidth speed?
09:27:14 <Bill> sorry, connectivity is what i mean
09:27:18 <Bill> and yeah
09:27:37 <Bill> We have the signal strength (bars) but there's just not enough bandwidth do to anything down there
09:27:58 <ynpvisitor999®> well... at least I hope the media guy knows what is what on the Hill, so it won't become a second Yellowstone Live
09:28:15 <ynpvisitor39> some gazers have done some FB live posts - but I don't know how long they attempted them
09:28:41 <Bill> I'm gonna try it out tomorrow and report back during different times of the day
09:28:49 <Bill> We'll go from there.
09:28:56 <ynpvisitor999®> the only FB live ones I know of have been done in the winter
09:29:01 <ynpvisitor39> Sept is better than July, for sure!
09:29:27 <Bill> for sure!
09:31:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:44:57 <ynpvisitor81> Many people waiting for beehive I think beehive is waiting for.... who knows
09:46:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's waiting for Indicator, though I wouldn't be surprised if Bee's patience with Indy is running out
09:48:36 <ynpvisitor53> Waiting for Godot
09:51:33 <Eric> Waiting for me :-) Good morning..
09:51:43 <Bill> Morning
09:51:47 <Kevin L™> It wants to go on my shift
09:52:09 <Eric> What is that steam on the right side?
09:52:12 <ynpvisitor81> BHI and BH like you Kevin
09:52:19 <BSK> I was wondering about that steam, too.
09:52:28 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
09:52:29 <Eric> Thats not borah peak, is it?
09:52:40 <BSK> Just OF and breeze coming from unusual direction...???
09:52:42 <BSK> Yup
09:52:52 <Kevin L™> I see what it is. Going into a Grand window now. Wants to torture the people in the field.
09:53:08 <Eric> No, I don't think that is borah peak
09:53:52 <Eric> So has the feature right in front of the bench at sponge changed at all?
09:54:06 <Eric> It was dead, dead, dead in mid august.
09:54:33 <Eric> It had a nice breakout last year and threw debri onto the boardwalk, they even removed the bench for a while.
09:55:05 <Bill> https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HWMHC-olItRLow6F6df0byxuoRphRcuy
09:55:09 <ynpvisitor69> still dead in Sept.
09:55:27 <Eric> New Norris I presume
09:55:41 <Bill> New data for: Echinus, Steamboat, Steam Valve, Cistern, Un-named ones above Steamboat, OF...
09:55:51 <Bill> Constant
09:56:03 <Eric> Thanks Bill
09:56:07 <Bill> I think that's it.
09:58:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks Bill. You made my data-loving part happy :)
09:58:49 <Bill> Hah, happy to help
09:59:29 <ynpvisitor39> Steamvalve still doing nothing?
09:59:56 <Bill> Be a little careful if you're adding data to GT. Especially with Echinus. I moved one o the loggers from the Tantalus Creek / Echinus interface to only being in Echinus runoff. It's denoted as the "New Location" folder in the Echinus folder
10:00:02 <Bill> Yeah, still doing nothing.
10:00:18 <ynpvisitor81> There you go Kevin, press the Bee button
10:01:08 <Kevin L™> Will try
10:01:10 <BSK> The :bee::bee::bee: are sleeping in.
10:01:40 <Eric> Thanks
10:02:17 <ynpvisitor49> Bees are waiting for it to warm up a bit.
10:02:29 <ynpvisitor39> where is the new Echinus lgger/
10:02:45 <ynpvisitor39> I mean "logger?"
10:04:04 <Bill> https://gyazo.com/c530eca4fd3b145dbbf06cf77a7a7c34 around there
10:04:43 <Eric> I have a 10:15 meeting, bee is waiting for me to stop watching :-P
10:05:28 <ynpvisitor39> Thanks Bill - just wondering where it could be without washing away IF it erupted again
10:06:55 <Bill> Hmm... maybe i should add more rocks!
10:07:13 <Bill> I don't have a good reference of how much water it puts out since it hasnt gone off during my time here
10:11:13 <ynpvisitor39> add more rocks - made me chuckle :D
10:13:39 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, based on the data points, the September 24 SB lasted 1h15m
10:17:28 <Jimbo O2> Did the Beehive prediction expire?
10:17:41 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
10:17:49 <Kevin L™> Looks like it.
10:18:08 <Jimbo O2> Thanks, I'll keep watching. Hi all
10:18:28 <Kevin L™> MOrning
10:18:37 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
10:19:23 <Bill> Morning Jimbo
10:29:32 <Kevin L™> Grand
10:37:55 <Kevin L™> 8m
10:46:28 <ynpvisitor53> not even Grand could make Beehive go
10:48:43 <Eric> Hmm, neither could my meeting!
10:48:54 <Eric> BH must be dormant now
10:50:02 <ynpvisitor53> it's just waiting for the NEXT Grand or the next next
10:53:01 <ynpvisitor39> is the new thing less active today, or is it just not being watched?
10:53:11 <ynpvisitor999®> probably the latter
10:53:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I think most gazers are at F&M today
10:57:52 <ynpvisitor999®> OF late ie
10:58:39 <Bill> Eric and Kevin, can you send me a PM? For whatever reason I can't send you one
11:01:58 <Eric> try /quit and then /connect Bill
11:02:17 <Eric> I cannot send you a PM because the chat thinks you don't exist.
11:02:51 <ynpvisitor53> incognito ergo no sum?
11:02:54 <Bill> Test
11:02:59 <Eric> You are back :-D
11:04:23 <Kevin L™> bhi
11:04:24 <Kevin L™> .
11:04:25 <Kevin L™> .
11:04:25 <Kevin L™> .
11:04:58 <ynpvisitor49> I think Kevin is seeing things in his crystal ball.
11:05:09 <ynpvisitor53> huh, look at that
11:05:11 <Eric> Woot...Love me some BH
11:06:30 <GE ©> TY for the text
11:06:53 <Kevin L™> Lion looks happy too
11:06:57 <ynpvisitorCC> Just happen to be at the computer....thanks for the txt
11:06:59 <Kevin L™> yw
11:10:34 <Bill> Morning, fishynp
11:13:44 <ynpvisitor49> Kevin, does your crystal ball work for Aurum?
11:14:03 <Kevin L™> Not really
11:15:38 <GE ©> nice crowd
11:17:09 <fishynp> good morning Bill
11:18:44 <Jimbo O2> slow rise
11:19:14 <Kevin L™> Rainbow
11:19:47 <Jimbo O2> The rainbow flag flies
11:20:53 <Jimbo O2> This is gorgeous
11:21:31 <Eric> Hey fishynp...you been up to the UGB hill since the outbreak?
11:21:34 <ynpvisitorCC> the next best thing to being there in person
11:22:11 <ynpvisitor49> I thought that was VISA
11:23:29 <Kevin L™> Nice one
11:24:20 <GE ©> back to work for me. Bye
11:25:28 <fishynp> no but I will be there this Sunday to place a bunch of seismometers on Geyser Hill in response.
11:25:31 <Eric> bye GE
11:25:45 <Kevin L™> bye ge
11:26:03 <Eric> Nice...has your data from Norris been made available publicly yet?
11:28:12 <fishynp> Not yet. Still working through that dataset. I'll let you know when we get through it.
12:08:11 <Kevin L™> Daisy
12:08:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy ie
12:35:24 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie
13:23:01 <Eric> So why in the world was there a pyrex funnel in ear spring?
13:24:03 <Jimbo O2> Walter White was such an evil genius!
13:24:09 <Kevin L™> I was wondering that myself. It looks very old, perhaps a scientific problem that went wrong?
13:24:55 <ynpvisitor40> Why was there a piece of a concrete block in Ear Spring and how long was it there?
13:25:31 <Eric> I assumed the block was some construction at some point. They use to wash laundry in pools like this :-P
13:26:16 <ynpvisitor39> boardwalk supports is my guess
13:26:31 <Eric> The amazing part to me is the pyrex funnel looked like it was still all in one piece. Being swallowed by a geyser and then spit back out.
13:26:35 <Kevin L™> They used to use concrete block as a base for the bw. I think there was a piece left out there and someone threw it in.
13:27:10 <Eric> That is some durable glass!
13:27:23 <ynpvisitor999®> as for the pyrex funnel, I think there were some guys in the past filtering some solution and used Ear Spring as their 'deposit'. Maybe the one holding the funnel accidentally let go of it and saw it swallowed by ES.
13:27:39 <Kevin L™> I am thinking the funnel may have been use to pour something in and the one holding was surprised when it reacted.
13:28:57 <ynpvisitor40> The organics like the cigarrette butt must be recent which means people are still throwing stuff in.
13:33:57 <ynpvisitor...> Where you guys seeing photos?
13:36:19 <Kevin L™> Bill had a link a few days back. I think it is also on the usgs volcanoes facebook thing.
13:36:38 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks. I'll go look
13:37:04 <Kevin L™> Castle
13:39:09 <ynpvisitor40> There is also a time lapse on USGS facebook of Drifters the new Under the Boardwalk feature.
13:44:39 <Jimbo O2> Drifters -- ohh, that's good
13:45:58 <Kevin L™> Gen x and me types would not understand that one
13:52:33 <Kevin L™> It almost looks like Plume relocated.
13:53:51 <ynpvisitor27> and that is not the name...no name has been given to it
13:54:35 <Jimbo O2> But it's a good one
13:54:46 <ynpvisitor53> sounds like a name was given to it
13:54:58 <ynpvisitor27> when?
13:55:24 <ynpvisitor53> 13:39:09 "Drifters"
13:56:01 <Kevin L™> May not be official but it is a name.
13:56:10 <ynpvisitor53> under the good authority of the esteemed ynpvisitor40
13:56:35 <ynpvisitor27> where did that come from? Seems like an odd geyser name
13:56:57 <Jimbo O2> "Under the Boardwalk" was a hit song by the musical group The Drifters
13:56:59 <ynpvisitor27> it's not a plural geyser, is it?
13:57:03 <ynpvisitor53> only needs 20 more people to say the name out loud before the NPS makes a log sign for it
13:57:29 <ynpvisitor27> those days are long gone
13:58:58 <ynpvisitor999®> "Undercut" is my favorite, but I've said that before...
13:59:10 <Kevin L™> Hey if they can call a Kawasaki Mule a Cushman in the Flagstaff cam, we can name a geyser on this page. Nobody may pay attention but it is fun anyway!
13:59:12 <ynpvisitor999®> that is, for that feature under the boardwalk
13:59:40 <Jimbo O2> "Under the Boardwalk" blurry black and white video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKmKezVBdOQ
14:00:07 <ynpvisitor27> 999, it's no longer under the boardwalk, and soon, will be far away from any new boardwalk.
14:01:49 <ynpvisitor999®> still, it refers to where it initially appeared and also (indirectly) points at the reason why the boardwalk was removed there
14:01:50 <Kevin L™> But I don't see a sea....
14:01:51 <ynpvisitor27> Graham posted a photo of it yesterday and the burst was very nice. He said you can see it from Marmot Cave
14:02:06 <ynpvisitor53> that's when the Drifters name will really hit home, double whammy
14:03:02 <ynpvisitor27> there will not be any explanation posted when the bw moves
14:03:25 <ynpvisitor27> think long term
14:04:17 <Eric> I like it :-D
14:05:36 <ynpvisitor999®> what if an information sign is placed explaining what happened in September 2018 at the start of the new boardwalk? It doesn't require more than a sentence to explain the feature's name and that the boardwalk therefore was moved
14:05:46 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
14:06:28 <Kevin L™> It will be long term before it gets a name and nobody will remember this conversation
14:06:48 <ynpvisitor999®> we'll see what happens in the future with it. It may as well quit tomorrow and become an empty hole, soon filled with gravel and such
14:07:03 <Eric> I will remember it :-D
14:07:21 <Eric> The Drifters hole?
14:07:24 <ynpvisitor...> Do we have a crack in the dome?
14:07:59 <ynpvisitor999®> no, it's the remnants of a mosquito in a cobweb
14:08:14 <ynpvisitor...> good
14:09:08 <ynpvisitor27> hard to believe we've gone all summer with this damaged dome. What does it take to get a new one?
14:09:34 <ynpvisitor999®> ask Split Cone :)
14:09:41 <ynpvisitor27> and 999, when you finally get to Yellowstone, you will see that signs are few and far between
14:10:35 <ynpvisitor...> Rangers have made a good effort. The problem is to do it right requires heavy equipment. There are plans afoot.
14:11:12 <Kevin L™> I think you will see a new dome soon.
14:11:18 <ynpvisitor27> about the cam Kent, or something else?
14:11:26 <ynpvisitor...> Dome
14:11:36 <ynpvisitor27> that is good news Kevin. I hope they take advantage and change it out before winter comes.
14:19:57 <Kevin L™> I hope so. With all the events going on staff has been pretty thin.
14:21:40 <Kevin L™> And with a Superintendent named Cam she should take an interest. :)
14:21:48 <Kevin L™> He
14:21:52 <Kevin L™> :P
14:21:53 <ynpvisitor27> ha ha
14:22:31 <ynpvisitor27> I am fairly sure they have to come from Mammoth to do any changes to the cam. First, they have to order the part in. That would be the first step.
14:23:13 <ynpvisitor27> Is it IT that does that? Social media? Not sure whose flagship that falls under.
14:23:45 <ynpvisitor27> while they are at, order a POLE! (just a new cover would be great, yet imagine a pole that does not sway...)
14:24:11 <Kevin L™> There has been a lot of changes in staff. The new guy is great. I think they have to work with it and with maintenance crews.
14:24:59 <Kevin L™> I can relate on that one. Some days I get really woozy after a shift!
14:30:32 <ynpvisitor27> on a pole, they could fasten it with an adjustable bracket, so they could lower it down the pole to clean.
14:31:30 <Kevin L™> Maybe one of those high mast lighting poles?
14:34:42 <ynpvisitor27> we can dream. I will be very happy with a new cover.
14:50:40 <Bill> Sorry, late to the convo. We talking about the camera at OF?
14:51:46 <Kevin L™> Yes. Do you know when or if we will get more time lapse on the new thing?
14:52:02 <Bill> I have two more days, but it's boring
14:52:11 <Bill> actually i have 3 more days of it
14:52:31 <Bill> it expands a bit more, but generally not as exciting to look at as the first video.
14:52:40 <Kevin L™> The hole at the end sure looked interesting. Just wondering how it was progressing.
14:52:44 <Bill> I'll be back down tomorrow to grab the sd cards and replace batteries.
14:53:08 <Kevin L™> You sure picked a fun year to start!
14:53:26 <Bill> Seriously!
14:54:47 <Bill> I feel like my baseline for what to expect in the future may be skewed.
14:55:25 <ynpvisitor98> Definitely. The last 7 months have been exceptional.
14:56:11 <Kevin L™> Yellowstone is always fun somewhere though! Beats those other "static" parks.
15:01:00 <Bill> Let me look into the camera situation.
15:01:37 <Kent> Are Bill's cam poles visible on this cam? Both the one at Ear and below Pump are fairly tall.
15:04:50 <ynpvisitor27> we were talking about a new cover for this web cam. Do you talk to the IT people ever Bill?
15:04:50 <Bill> my fancy boardwalk planks? haha
15:05:09 <Kent> They do stick out :)
15:05:17 <Bill> I'm going to do some poking around. I dont think IT deals with that here, but i'll do some investigating.
15:05:33 <Bill> I think that's a good thing, Kent. No one has been back in that area. They'd get caught on camera.
15:05:37 <ynpvisitor27> thanks Bill. We have even offered here on chat to pay for a new one
15:05:54 <ynpvisitor27> it needs replacing before winter sets in
15:18:12 <Bill> OK someone is going out to clean it right now and we'll re-evaluate if we need a new cover or not
15:18:40 <Bill> It'll be a good cleaning with cleaning solution and such.
15:18:54 <Kent> !
15:21:44 <ynpvisitor27> believe us, it needs a new cover
15:22:21 <ynpvisitor27> this one has been silica slimed too many times
15:22:28 <Bill> I do believe you. I can see the gunk on there. The interp person i talked to said it's likely geyserite on there
15:23:02 <Bill> Which there's no good way of getting off, unless it's a class cover (which im sure it's just plastic)
15:24:02 <Kevin L™> It is plastic
15:24:27 <Kent> We may have more luck with plastic. I think the silica in geyserite fuses with glass. It will be fun to see what can be done.
15:25:05 <Bill> You can use glass polish to buff it out of glass though
15:26:46 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe a bit extreme, but how about some aqua regia on the dome if it's glass? Should hopefully get rid of the geyserite
15:26:57 <ynpvisitor81> If they do it with cleaning solution, it will make a big difference
15:28:07 <ynpvisitor27> they usually get the bottom half OK, yet the top half never really gets clean
15:28:21 <ynpvisitor27> not enough pressure in the cleaning up top
15:28:42 <ynpvisitor27> Aurum?
15:28:59 <ynpvisitor27> yep
15:29:07 <ynpvisitor27> thanks cam op
15:29:40 <ynpvisitor27> that was nice
15:29:41 <ynpvisitor81> two problems, !. thirty foot pole, 2. target that moves when you put pressure on it.
15:29:43 <Kevin L™> And a lot of OF steam.
15:30:09 <ynpvisitor27> 81, that is why I suggested the adjustable bracket on a real steel pole
15:31:24 <ynpvisitor81> Yes very good idea, make it look like a tree and it will be a done deal!
15:31:24 <Kevin L™> Need ot put the bottom side of the pole in a hole hawg and hit high speed. More power!
15:31:44 <ynpvisitor81> yes Tim
15:32:18 <ynpvisitor81> :)
15:32:59 <Kevin L™> Binford model HH128.
15:33:08 <ynpvisitor81> :)
15:34:02 <ynpvisitor27> 81, I don't get why it has to look like a tree. It is a service pole, for a service, the cam. The basin can handle one pole.
15:34:33 <ynpvisitor27> it's not like it is in a high viewing area. Folks are looking at OF, not at the pole
15:36:41 <ynpvisitor20> rotating the plastic dome is more feasible for the winter
15:38:28 <ynpvisitor27> that might work, though it might have already been done
15:38:39 <Bill> it's the claw!
15:39:32 <ynpvisitor98> Has anyone besides me read the novel Dust? Every time the cam enclosure is cleaned I think of that novel.
15:39:35 <Kevin L™> Looks like a B movie monster.
15:39:48 <ynpvisitor27> still see spots
15:39:55 <ynpvisitor98> Wait! The novel is Wool1
15:40:21 <Kevin L™> Must be the cleaner.
15:40:45 <ynpvisitor27> not the right cleaner? Is that what you mean Kevin? I think the spots have bonded
15:41:18 <Kevin L™> No the last thing didn't have the padding.
15:42:46 <Kevin L™> It does look better
15:43:48 <ynpvisitor27> better yet not good
15:46:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Yay! Webcam cleaned!
15:46:53 <Kent> Even with a new dome this would be an ongoing problem.
15:47:21 <ynpvisitor27> it's true Kent, yet for $150, replacing it every now and again would be VERY nice
15:47:46 <ynpvisitor27> it takes a while for it to build up to where it will not clean
15:47:47 <Kent> Yes
15:47:50 <ynpvisitor81> a few more cleanings and it will be fine
15:48:12 <ynpvisitor27> that is not how it works 81
15:48:20 <Bill> just got a call. they're going to go out and scrub it again
15:48:31 <Bill> with more solution
15:48:42 <BSK> It was just cleaned a few days ago. It doesn't take long for geyser spray to muck it up with an unfavorable wind.
15:49:14 <BSK> Thanks, Bill.
15:50:10 <ynpvisitor81> a few days ago they rubbed it with a dry mitt it needs cleaning solution every time
15:50:45 <ynpvisitor999®> there it comes!
15:51:09 <Kevin L™> I have it wide so they can see what they are doing.
15:51:19 <Eric> cleaner is back!
15:51:46 <Bill> Can you tell if it's helping any?
15:52:13 <ynpvisitor27> I would say some, yet not all of it.
15:52:19 <ynpvisitor27> see the dots on the sky?
15:52:25 <Bill> Yeah
15:52:34 <Bill> Is it less than before though?
15:52:53 <ynpvisitor20> I saw streaks from the cleaning fluid that dried
15:52:59 <ynpvisitor81> i'll bet their arms are getting tired
15:52:59 <ynpvisitor999®> to really clean it, you'd need a person to get up there and scrub it off without using the pole
15:53:37 <ynpvisitor27> I think it is better
15:53:51 <ynpvisitor27> yet as you can see, along the green trees and the sky there are still dots
15:54:05 <ynpvisitor27> it needs a new cover
15:54:06 <Kent> Geyserite is tough stuff
15:54:10 <ynpvisitor20> improving, keep going
15:54:11 <ynpvisitor27> can it be rotated?
15:54:16 <ynpvisitor20> 5 more minutes should do it
15:54:28 <ynpvisitor27> not sure it would 20
15:54:30 <Eric> drill attachment!
15:54:35 <BSK> It is better. It was out of focus earlier because the spots were messing with focus. There are still spots, but it's better.
15:55:11 <ynpvisitor27> I would look into rotating it. If not possible, a new cover
15:55:50 <Eric> put this on a pole :-D https://www.amazon.com/Drill-Brush-Cleaning-Bristles-Drillbrush/dp/B06VYFC8FY
15:57:28 <Kevin L™> I have some stuff I polish pens with that would probably work.
16:00:42 <Kevin L™> Controls released
16:04:42 <ynpvisitor10> Tomorrow we will try climbing up to it to clean it by hand. We use CCTV lens cleaner. Not sure why it is so bad lately. We'll see what a hand cleaning can do tomorrow.
16:05:10 <Kevin L™> TY 10
16:05:42 <Eric> You are awesome 10! We truly appreciate your efforts.
16:06:02 <Bill> Thanks mysterious 10 user!
16:07:06 <ynpvisitor10> I think that the cover is scratched too. It wasn't doing any good to scrub with our pole.
16:07:45 <ynpvisitor10> Still looks pretty bad. After they move it to the top of the Inn we won't be able to clean it at all.
16:08:44 <ynpvisitor20> dome replacement schedule would be good then or train a raven to clean
16:10:12 <ynpvisitor81> Have the person that raises and lowers the flags clean it morning and night, when the park is closed it will just have to do
16:11:33 <ynpvisitor81> where it will be mounted it will be easy to do
16:13:00 <ynpvisitor20> is this cam really moving? not a second being added?
16:13:24 <ynpvisitor81> don't know for sure
16:13:53 <ynpvisitor92> Not enough IP addresses for another cam?
16:14:27 <ynpvisitor81> addresses ok, bandwidth no
16:15:25 <ynpvisitor92> My understanding of why we lost the old static was that there were only so many IP address available in the UGB?
16:16:45 <ynpvisitor20> that sounds odd but I don't know enough
16:20:15 <Eric> IP addresses would be a silly reason...bandwidth is the most likely case.
16:20:51 <Kevin L™> I know they could not keep the static on the pole because of the address.
16:20:58 <Eric> They are running this camera on old copper wires.
16:22:07 <Eric> Well, that is just poor technical know how...you can virtualize addresses and still route to them.
16:25:32 <Jake> Grand
16:28:21 <Kevin L™> I guess Graham isn't going to run it today. I am multi tasking so may not be great
16:28:31 <Jake> all lined up for another ho-hum 4 Grand day
16:33:29 <Jake> I see they cleaned the dome? looks clean to me! isn't this getting to be setting sun time when the dome spots all show up?
16:34:05 <BSK> Just cleaned - twice - in last hour.
16:34:46 <Jake> I am curious to find out more about this new cam location too. What sources are saying that? Bill and I assume visitor10 was VEC someone (cam cleaner)?
16:35:31 <Jake> I thought the Inn was off limits because they don't want to run modern cables.
16:35:47 <Jake> not sure who "they" might be in that case, Xanterra, NPS or both
16:38:06 <ynpvisitor81> all done
16:41:25 <Eric> Wireless is magic Jake :-D
16:42:40 <Eric> If it is moved to the Inn, it will be interesting to see if the bandwidth improves.
16:45:58 <ynpvisitor81> If it is moved to the inn, Geyser hill view will be very nice, but down basin will be a challenge, and at night you would probably have only Geyser hill
16:46:35 <ynpvisitor999®> strong GHP 1620
17:13:59 <ynpvisitor999®> OF and Daisy ie
18:45:46 <baw> of
18:46:52 <Kevin L™> Great static shot
18:47:19 <6> Morning solo!! Nice.
19:24:58 <Kevin L™> Nice Sunset color
19:50:43 <Kent> Did the dome look cleaner before sunset? I hope!
19:52:03 <Kent> Daisy 1951 iwc ie
19:53:40 <Kevin L™> Yes it did
19:55:41 <Kent> Very good
21:14:09 <ynpvisitor38> The camera don't need cleaning it is out of focus.
21:14:49 <Kevin L™> Must be the alcohol in the cleaner.
21:15:00 <ynpvisitor38> What don't they want us to see?
21:15:25 <Kent> As I get older I tend to like fuzzy sputs!
21:15:43 <Kevin L™> Must be the lava from that new thing.
21:16:37 <Kent> The magma pouring out was impressive!
21:18:47 <ynpvisitor61> They also turned the moon off.
21:22:48 <Eric> lion?
21:23:12 <Eric> looks like it
21:24:06 <Kevin L™> Yes
