06:02:39 <ynpvisitor89> there has not been a Old Faithful short since Oct. 3rd at 1214.
06:44:51 <ynpvisitor16> Early bird gets Bee today
06:45:47 <ynpvisitor41> Is bhi ie or just bee steam?
06:46:10 <ynpvisitor16> Looks like it is ie.
06:46:34 <ynpvisitor16> Here we go...
06:47:05 <ynpvisitor16> Beehive @ 0646
06:48:00 <ynpvisitor89> fuzzy
06:49:36 <ynpvisitor16> Not excactly an eruption to remember
06:54:17 <ynpvisitor41> A little less fuzzy at end of eruption
06:54:54 <ynpvisitor89> any Bee is a nice Bee
06:55:46 <Dave from B™> Grrrrr.....that's what I get for sleeping in
06:56:17 <ynpvisitor89> You snooze you lose
06:56:33 <ynpvisitor89> :)
06:56:42 <ynpvisitor89> Morning Dave
06:56:51 <Dave from B™> Morning Joe
06:57:24 <Dave from B™> Seems you are always 89. What's the signifcance?
06:58:27 <ynpvisitor89> none, I just haven't signed out since I became #89
07:09:16 <Dave from B™> Sept visitation numbers still haven't been released
07:15:01 <ynpvisitor89> steam at Rside area but I expect a larger plume at this temperature
07:16:42 <ynpvisitor89> Daisy
07:18:40 <Micah> Good Morning everyone! I'll be spending the day in the basin with my dad, but I'm putting the computer away and checking out of my dorm this morning.
07:18:52 <Micah> I'll be back on in a few days when I get back home!
07:18:56 <Micah> GO GIANT!
07:19:23 <ynpvisitor89> Hi Micah enjoy Giant!
07:19:37 <Dave from B™> Enjoy your last day Micah!
07:20:46 <ynpvisitor89> NG
07:21:41 <Micah> Yay! NG!
07:21:53 <Micah> Keep an eye out for me! I won't be able to get up there until later.
07:22:03 <Micah> Toodles!
07:28:05 <J. Technetium> Made it in time for the pink hues of sunrise
08:00:09 <ynpvisitor71> Wonder how far they got on the Washburn cell upgrades before the summit got totally socked in with snow
08:00:56 <Dave from B™> Good question, 71
08:01:31 <Dave from B™> I did hear that Dunraven is going to stay open another 4 weeks until Nov 5 becuase of Fishing Brodge area and Norris-Mammoth road permitting
08:02:27 <ynpvisitor71> I'm sure a lot of folks have been disappointed in the sheer number of closures in the park last couple years
08:02:55 <ynpvisitor71> Washburn closed to hiking, Inspiration point, Fairy falls last year, most of the stuff on the Norris-mammoth road
08:03:14 <ynpvisitor71> So hoping they are quick with Washburn
08:03:40 <Dave from B™> Inspiration Point is open and they did a fantastic job
08:03:58 <ynpvisitor93> This is cool
08:04:37 <ynpvisitor93> I agree, Inspiration was well done.
08:05:29 <Dave from B™> I can't wait to see the Upper Falls/Uncle Tom's area when it opens
08:06:25 <ynpvisitor93> Uncle Tom's has been a loss. It will be good to have it back.
08:07:12 <ynpvisitor89> I would like to do Uncle Tom's one more time.
08:07:39 <ynpvisitor89> stream and controls are down:thumbsdown:
08:07:43 <Dave from B™> The brink of Upper Falls is slated to be the next closure...if it's not closed already
08:08:00 <ynpvisitor71> Glad to see them do those as they were getting quite bad
08:08:42 <ynpvisitor89> stream up controls too
08:08:45 <Dave from B™> Yep....nice to see the improvements
08:09:11 <Dave from B™> It was fun finally seeing the new GPS overlook too
08:09:22 <ynpvisitor71> I remember the first time we went to inspiration point I was like.. ummm.. this is sketchy
08:09:44 <Dave from B™> You can tell NPS still doesn't want a lot of people there....signage is very limited
08:10:01 <Dave from B™> I agree 71
08:16:29 <Dave from B™> Giant seems stuck
08:19:12 <Mike J> Good slighty-snow-dusted morning to all
08:19:32 <J. Technetium> Hi - sure beats storm surge
08:19:47 <ynpvisitor89> Hi Mike, how is the foot?
08:21:18 <Mike J> Progressing, I guess 89. No pain. However, I did get the chance to schlep it around the Albuquerque Ballon Festival this weekend.
08:21:27 <Mike J> If that didn't destroy it again, nothing will.
08:21:50 <ynpvisitor89> lets hope not
08:23:49 <ynpvisitor89> I haven't been to the festival, since I left Springerville (early 80s)
08:24:30 <Mike J> First time I've been in 30 years. Me and 70,000 of my closest friends. But still an amazing event.
08:25:56 <Dave from B™> Wow....Mike, you have a lot of friends....not quite rock star status but you're getting there!
08:26:58 <Mike J> And none of them "friends" enough to give me front of the line priviledges. Guess I need to get a new 70,000 friends
08:28:46 <Dave from B™> Never let your wife pick your ringtone on your new phone...loud barking dog scared the #$%#$ out of me
08:31:42 <ynpvisitor89> You need the HAL2000 "hello Dave" ringtone :)
08:32:36 <Dave from B™> hahaha
08:32:50 <J. Technetium> This one is a little long, but could be adapted
08:33:21 <J. Technetium> HAL is free on Zedge
08:34:07 <Dave from B™> haha Jimbo. I love it
08:34:17 <J. Technetium> Never mind, wrong Dave (on Zedge)
08:34:34 <Dave from B™> So, can you make any audio picee a ringtone?
08:34:48 <J. Technetium> I believe it's possible
08:34:53 <ynpvisitor89> Yes
08:35:18 <J. Technetium> My voicemail notification is Jarvis
08:35:46 <J. Technetium> found these, not vouching for quality
08:36:38 <ynpvisitor89> Use Audacity, with it anything can be made.
08:38:23 <ynpvisitor89> I wonder if the fellow in green jacket is Micah next to his dad?
08:40:56 <ynpvisitor48> nice OF to start the day; great light
08:44:31 <ynpvisitor89> Riverside
08:47:54 <ynpvisitor89> GRAND
08:48:16 <Dave from B™> I must be lagging
08:48:23 <Dave from B™> there it goes
08:50:11 <J. Technetium> Sure is easy to see where they are this morning
08:55:11 <ynpvisitor89> 8min
08:57:11 <ynpvisitor89> 10min
08:59:10 <J. Technetium> Need the IR cam this morning
08:59:37 <ynpvisitor89> looks like ending with Turban
09:00:47 <Bill> Morning
09:02:07 <ynpvisitor89> Morning Bill
09:02:10 <Bill> Quick update then i'm heading out. I have a temp sensor to hopefully fix Steamboat's USGS logger, and I'm going to stop by the new feature in UGB today.
09:03:05 <Dave from B™> Have fun, Bill
09:03:21 <J. Technetium> You can turn on the Giantess valve while you're there, Bill (oh I'm sorry sssshhhh I forgot I won't tell anyone)
09:03:37 <ynpvisitor89> nice we will try to keep the weather nice for you
09:04:01 <Bill> J. Technetium, I would have to divert the pipe from Steamboat. Cool with that?
09:05:06 <Bill> Have a good day, all!
09:06:07 <J. Technetium> Make sure you tell Dave from B before you do that so he doesn't waste a trip
09:07:14 <Dave from B™> Sun forecast of Hi 30 and Lo 10 doesn't have me excited to go
09:07:55 <J. Technetium> Steam will keep you warm >(
09:09:12 <Dave from B™> :)
09:16:52 <Craig Laptop™> Brr looks chilly
09:17:59 <J. Technetium> Winter Is Coming
09:18:19 <Craig Laptop™> Is that still grand?
09:18:37 <Craig Laptop™> because wow i forgot how fluffy it looks when its cold
09:19:31 <ynpvisitor25> Hey Dave from B™, at least it won't be too hot for you. Can't complain about that!
09:24:02 <Dave from B™> hahaha. Have I complained about the heat before?:)
09:25:04 <ynpvisitor25> one or two mentions, :D :D
09:33:07 <Dave from B™> Man, I have to stop complaining about the always comes back to bite me.
09:34:05 <Mike J> Speaking of heat - starting to be the time of year when I can start bragging again. High today - 80.
09:35:00 <ynpvisitor89> :-[
09:35:27 <Mike J> makes up for us have the fourth highest number of days over 100
09:44:36 <Dave from B™> No bragging here for at least 7 months
09:49:19 <ynpvisitor89> Daisy
09:50:00 <BSK> Sugarcoating makes everything prettier...
09:51:14 <ynpvisitor6> Causes cancer.
09:57:59 <ynpvisitor89> I have used most of the geysers, have a great day:)
09:58:48 <Dave from B™> Joe, that is just like you!:D
09:59:15 <ynpvisitor89> I did press the restart button on all :)
09:59:57 <Kevin L™> I can use the sleep Joe, thanks!
10:00:14 <Kent> Split Cone major in the cold
10:00:49 <Kevin L™> Do not like this wind direction.
10:01:07 <BSK> *knocks on wood*
10:06:16 <Kevin L™> Not good
10:09:26 <Kevin L™> Looks like we dodged a bullet
10:10:56 <Kent> This will continue to be a problem when we get our new static :)
10:12:44 <BSK> There really is no way to eliminate the possibility without placing a cam so far away we can't "reach" anything.
10:14:58 <BSK> Hopefully the wiper system works well
10:15:29 <Dave from B™> It wrked pretty well on the previous cam
10:15:45 <Dave from B™> Will new cam have a heater as well?
10:15:52 <Kevin L™> I think it is supposed to have deicing fluid.
10:16:08 <Kevin L™> Not sure about heat.
10:16:18 <BSK> Given the operating temp of the cam winter temps, there must be something to generate at least a little heat.
10:16:59 <Kevin L™> This one has a heater to keep the electronics happy buy not clear the dome.
10:17:22 <Kent> I don't know that there are any plans for a new static. Wishful thinking on my part.
10:23:34 <Kevin L™> I think I saw the Amtrak logo on the Chama train. Left 19 minutes late. Worst I have ever seen. I will sure miss the morning train whistle when it shuts down for Winter.
10:34:57 <Dave from B™> 19 minutes late is great for Amtrak
10:35:37 <Kevin L™> Yes it is. The other day the Southwest Chief was 16 hours late to Chicago from LA.
10:38:47 <ynpvisitor> 16 hours late, or 4 hours late, or 8 hours early? Depends on how often it leaves.
10:38:58 <ynpvisitor> Sorry I guess trains depart
10:39:44 <Kevin L™> It was supposed to take about 30 hours from LA to Chicago. It took about 46.
10:40:08 <ynpvisitor> The Hooterville train keep to a tighter schedule.
10:40:22 <Dave from B™> I wish we had more train service in this country
10:40:41 <ynpvisitor> SO more people coul dbe late?
10:41:42 <Kevin L™> Train service in the west does not make sense. Costs way more than air for slower service. Sort of like taking a ship from NY to London now.
10:41:50 <ynpvisitor> Would be a bummer if you were going for a scheduled event.
10:42:17 <ynpvisitor> Dave would ride the train to SB.
10:42:40 <Dave from B™> Trains are definitely a step back in time.....only for those not in a hurry.
10:42:59 <Kevin L™> Eastern corridor it works well as it does in Southern california.
10:43:58 <Kevin L™> If they had trains like cruise ships where the journey was the destination then it would make sense. That has been tried though and didn't work well.
10:45:47 <ynpvisitor> Trains are like a restaurant I knew of. They had fewer customers so closed earlier and earlier. Soon they never opened.
10:46:13 <ynpvisitor> If trains provided a service people liked, they would ride them.
10:46:29 <Kevin L™> Trains like the Silverton, the Cumbres & Toltec, Grand Canyon Railway, and some other various ones around the country are great.
10:47:46 <Dave from B™> Let's bring the railroad back to Gardiner!
10:48:07 <Kevin L™> Ugh. "Heads up. Windows is going to make a better experience by updating. We will remind you when we are ready to restart." :P
10:49:18 <ynpvisitor> If Dave could put a box of fish on the train to Bozeman, and know it would get there still frozen, he would think about it.
10:49:29 <Kevin L™> The one to West would probably work good now. Too bad the removed so much of it. It has a shortline operator (Eastern Idaho RR) and it could be a great trip.
10:50:44 <ynpvisitor> I would ride a diner train up on the pass in
10:50:48 <ynpvisitor> Butte
10:52:01 <ynpvisitor> It would be fun shooting at train robbers and indians out the windows.
10:52:36 <Dave from B™> Take the Charlie Russell choo choo and you will get robbed
10:53:10 <Dave from B™>
10:54:01 <ynpvisitor> Just not right a robber on horse back and a diesel locomotive.
10:55:45 <Dave from B™> Better than nothing?
10:56:09 <ynpvisitor> And if you can not shoot back, how can you save the day, win the girl, and ride off into the sunset?
11:05:55 <Kevin L™> For a Vegas guy $100 for a prime rib is a robbery even if they throw in a free train ride...
11:06:25 <Dave from B™> Is that the cost now? I did it once over 20 years ago
11:06:27 <ynpvisitor60> Even in the east, train not so useful - a visitor from DC is flying rather than tale the train, got $220 round trip BWI/Bradley, train to New Haven would have been $250 or more
11:06:51 <ynpvisitor60> But, at least for train you don't have to deal with airports
11:07:53 <ynpvisitor> But do you need to get to the station 2 hours early, pay for baggage, and get your junk squeezed, to ride the train?
11:11:13 <Kevin L™> I think you have to pay extra for more than one bag on Amtrak.
11:11:39 <Kevin L™> No doubt about this Depression!
11:13:37 <ynpvisitor> I get a security warning from the Amtrak site, so if other chat on google is correct you get 2 carry on and possibly 2 checked bags.
11:13:48 <ynpvisitor> 20 bucks each after that.
11:14:37 <ynpvisitor> So the steamer trunk with grandma hidden in it may cost you 20 bucks extra.
11:14:42 <Kevin L™> And if you arrive 2 hours late you still usually make the train...
11:15:09 <Kent> :)
11:15:57 <Dave from B™> haha. My inlaws rode the train from Bellingham to Seattle and enjoyed it...$16 per person
11:16:00 <ynpvisitor> I will stick to my global warming vehicle pulling my house. I could use some warming this morning anyway.
11:16:17 <Kent> I wonder why. Honest question. European and Asian trains run to the half minute.
11:16:49 <ynpvisitor> Because they want to or need to.
11:16:54 <Kent> Some European trains. Not Italian ones :)
11:17:11 <ynpvisitor> I also think the tracks may be owned by the passenger line
11:17:36 <Dave from B™> freight traffic is the issue in the US
11:17:48 <Kevin L™> Trains in Europe and some Aisian areas make sense since things are so close together and the population density is there.
11:18:02 <Kent> Lots of Amtrack rails are owned by Amtrack.
11:18:22 <ynpvisitor> We have lots of dense people in the USA.
11:18:31 <Kevin L™> Place a to scale map of Europe or Japan over a map of the US.
11:18:34 <Kent> :)
11:19:10 <Dave from B™> I know Empire Builder is on almost all freight rails
11:20:25 <Kevin L™> Freight trains here have strict schedules with penalties from shippers if they are late. They take priority over passenger service which is a money loser for all involved.
11:20:38 <Kent> I may have misspoke. Rails down from me are owned by local transit company, not Amtrack.
11:22:40 <ynpvisitor> Distance does not keep people from driving now. I bet Betty would have taken a train if she could have gotten one from Yellowstone to Zion.
11:24:48 <ynpvisitor> The cold makes burps look like something is happening.
11:25:28 <Kent> A very different view once the cold arrives
11:25:52 <ynpvisitor> I get used to it about April
11:26:12 <Dave from B™> Yep...I've driven between 800 and 1000 in a day 3 times in the past year
11:26:38 <ynpvisitor> Will not be long and we will think we are looking at San Francisco.
11:34:00 <ynpvisitor> Well enjoy people watching. Dave will be doing lots of that when he sets up his new webcam.
11:37:30 <Dave from B™> I'll be upgrading to 2 larger monitors or going to 3
11:40:30 <Kevin L™> Here is a well traveled baseball for you Dave:
11:46:47 <Dave from B™> haha
11:56:20 <ynpvisitor2> They did not go very high. The rcord is 53 km.
11:57:47 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I'll have to admit I was very tempted to go to Dodgers Brewers Games 4 and 5 next Tues and Wed
11:59:05 <Kevin L™> I assume they are in LA
11:59:47 <Dave from B™> yep
12:02:01 <Kevin L™> I am still ticked at them. They used to let Cox show their games with the padres and diamondbacks but this year they even pulled the plug on that. I cannot see how come the Vegas market is blacked out for an LA team.
12:02:55 <Dave from B™> for the almighty dollar
12:08:48 <Kevin L™> I would think they would make more money by showing them. Vegas has always been a big Dodger market and it isn't like we are going to make a trip on a whim to see them. I know a lot of people that have gone to their games but now aren't since they don't seem to want us ass fans.
12:09:35 <Kevin L™> Boy did my Dave keyboard bite me there. I guess that is how they feel about us anyway.
12:14:13 <Dave from B™> They had the second highest attendance for a year in history this year. They dare doing fine. It's the trend of everything going to cable or you having to subscribe to MLB that is driving the TV dollars
12:14:41 <Dave from B™> 2nd highest attendance isn't just for them...all teams
12:15:36 <Kevin L™> My friend subscribed to MLB and they were still blacked out!
12:15:58 <Dave from B™> I didn't think that was possible...hmmmm
12:16:28 <Kevin L™> Neither did he! He was able to get a refund.
12:17:16 <Kevin L™> I have too many other things I can watch for free or on my cable. Don't need to pay for anything else.
12:17:24 <ynpvisitor70> Daisy
12:18:09 <Dave from B™> Yep...I've been reducing my cable bill every year for the last few
12:18:11 <Kevin L™> Big plume on Daisy
12:19:02 <Kevin L™> I can get over 80 channels over the air of which about 30 plus have something worth watching to boot.
12:44:46 <J. Technetium> That's some pretty good steam
12:45:20 <J. Technetium> Grotto, right?
12:45:26 <Kevin L™> Probably a Rocket major
12:45:30 <J. Technetium> Oh
12:46:03 <Kevin L™> Hot period at 1204
12:46:12 <Kevin L™> Grotto 1159
13:48:04 <ynpvisitor64> Lion window is open, prediction is 16:05 +/- a whopper
13:48:36 <ynpvisitor64> Last 5 initial where within 2.5 hours of prediction, so maybe Lion has settled down?
14:18:10 <Betty> hi all
14:19:25 <Kevin L™> Do you have your NoDoz®?
14:19:53 <Betty> uhmmm, no
14:20:27 <Kevin L™> Been one of those zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz days
14:26:45 <Betty> Grand
14:26:55 <Betty> not no doz
14:28:04 <Kevin L™> I was really lagged
14:28:40 <J. Technetium> Half hour early than the center of the prediction window
14:37:51 <Betty> was that a 2nd?
14:38:39 <Kevin L™> No clue
14:39:15 <Betty> hopefully Micah is near
14:41:06 <Betty> yeah, Heinrich got it
14:41:22 <Betty> a 1b
14:51:45 <Betty> Daisy
14:52:54 <Kevin L™> Gänseblümchen ist heute sehr schwer zu sehen
14:53:21 <Betty> ja, fast gar nicht
14:54:45 <J. Technetium> Der Winter kommt
14:55:17 <Kevin L™> Nur Schattierungen von Weiß
14:57:16 <J. Technetium> I just discovered that Google Translate refuses to translate the phrase "Game of Thrones" into "Spiel die Throne".
14:58:45 <Kevin L™> What is really funny is seeing how closed caption translates.
15:00:28 <Kevin L™> It really stresses on the closing theme from WKRP
15:01:06 <ynpvisitor64> in Cincinnati?
15:01:16 <ynpvisitor89> Riverside
15:01:22 <Kevin L™> And the sensor function is funny too. I like the description on westerns "Gun XXXXing"
15:01:31 <Kevin L™> Yes 64.
15:01:45 <Kevin L™> Good eyes 89
15:02:26 <ynpvisitor89> I only have one that works, so thanks :)
15:03:44 <Kevin L™> I can relate 89. If I was a horse I would be a bottle on the shelf at Lowes with "Elmers" on the label.
15:04:22 <ynpvisitor89> same here!!
15:04:34 <ynpvisitor64> Guess we all have something in common. Right eye is 20/20, but only 30% of view is useful
15:05:12 <Kevin L™> I do have one of those plastic lenses in one of my eyes.
15:06:00 <ynpvisitor89> right eye=OK left eye=0
15:06:24 <Kevin L™> I wish they could do the same with ears.
15:06:32 <ynpvisitor64> Left eye remains uncorrected but 100% of field. We should buy eyeglasses together, Kevin!
15:06:46 <ynpvisitor64> And '89, also
15:06:59 <Betty> you want a plastic lense in your ear?
15:07:22 <ynpvisitor64> I want to visit that guy from Bladerunner, who only makes eyes
15:07:43 <Kevin L™> Who knows, it may help.
15:13:32 <ynpvisitor89> If they coul connect a camera to your optic nerve, I would have them put a really good camera in my left
15:14:03 <Kevin L™> Zoom with IR?
15:14:32 <ynpvisitor89> pan, tilt, zoom, IR, the works
15:14:56 <ynpvisitor64> Ghost in the Shell had eyes with those functionalities
15:18:20 <Dave from B™> Is this a medical chat page?:)
15:18:47 <ynpvisitor64> More like a scar-comparing page
15:19:00 <Dave from B™> I'm deaf in my left ear so I guess I'm in the right place
15:20:58 <ynpvisitor64> Ear humor
15:21:34 <Kevin L™> Well with my right ear we have a set.
15:21:59 <Kevin L™> 79° and sunny. Did I ever mention that I like living in the desert?
15:22:16 <ynpvisitor89> my ears and elbows are the only parts of my body without problems
15:22:56 <Betty> :-)
15:22:57 <Dave from B™> 89, don't say that too loud....that got me in trouble with my truck earlier this week
15:23:12 <Kevin L™> Did you get it home?
15:23:15 <ynpvisitor89> oh..oh
15:23:51 <Dave from B™> nope...a mechanic in Belgrade is working on it....fried some wires by them rubbing together
15:25:08 <Dave from B™> phone just rang and the ID says "Potential Spam". Now why would I answer that?:D
15:26:25 <ynpvisitor89> did the dogs bark?
15:26:27 <Dave from B™> 41 GHP's since last Giant
15:26:31 <ynpvisitor64> Maybe someone wants to offer you a spam sandwich, or spam on rye, or span on crackers
15:26:33 <Dave from B™> Yes, the dogs barked
15:27:12 <Kevin L™> I don't even answer the phone anymore. Politicians and polls.
15:30:02 <Dave from B™> I only answer if a name I recognize comes up. For work, my daughter and my assistant are my firewall.
15:32:53 <ynpvisitor> 7.3 in Papua New Guinea
15:33:21 <ynpvisitor> Was that the red spike?
15:35:40 <ynpvisitor89> Cistern spring should have been full and overflowing very early yesterday if not the evening before, so how many days to Steamboat?
15:36:22 <Kevin L™> Depends on when Dave is going there.
15:36:38 <Dave from B™> I would expect we will get a report on GT later today or tomorrow
15:36:41 <ynpvisitor89> :thumbsup:>(
15:41:05 <ynpvisitor89> I wonder how long Micah and his Dad will sit at Giant before leaving today?
15:42:18 <Kevin L™> Longer than I would have.
15:42:30 <Kevin L™> I would be in Rexburg by now.
15:42:52 <Dave from B™> Isn't that too far north for you in October?
15:43:20 <Kevin L™> Even worse in November.
15:43:47 <ynpvisitor> Kevin is Reptilian. Or cold blooded.
15:44:00 <Dave from B™> My fresh manager is going to Calgary the first weekend in November to watch a hockey game. I told him he is crazy
15:44:26 <Dave from B™> haha. I read that as a political party at first
15:44:32 <Kevin L™> It should be warm. They are the Flames after all.
15:46:49 <ynpvisitor89> Betty is back
15:47:02 <ynpvisitor89> wb Betty
15:47:55 <ynpvisitor> Is he paying for the trip with boxes of fish?
15:53:20 <Betty> I´m headed out, enjoy the snow
15:53:31 <LETS GO CAPS> what happened to the view?
15:53:31 <Betty> hi and bye Graham
15:53:32 <Kevin L™> Knight Betty
15:53:39 <LETS GO CAPS> was it something I said Betty?
15:53:58 <LETS GO CAPS> i guess the weather is telling Micah to leave early
15:54:12 <Betty> lol, no. It just is midnight :-)
15:54:27 <ynpvisitor> Micah leave because of a little snow?
15:54:52 <ynpvisitor> I thought this view may be a little hard on tiered eyes.
15:54:57 <LETS GO CAPS> and he is being kicked out as the Inn has closed
15:56:04 <ynpvisitor> It will take them at least a week to find him camping out in the dorms.
15:56:41 <ynpvisitor> The more Kevin shivers, the worse the view gets.
15:57:09 <ynpvisitor> Enjoy
15:57:19 <LETS GO CAPS> Kevin will be frozen out tonight
15:57:26 <Kevin L™> I am not shivering. It is 78° here right now.
16:04:18 <Dave from B™> yuck yuck yuck
16:04:39 <Kevin L™> :):):)
16:04:53 <Kevin L™> I need a cactus emoji

16:12:03 <ynpvisitor89> control shift u1f335

16:13:59 <Kevin L™> That didn't work.
16:14:26 <Kevin L™> u1f335
16:14:34 <ynpvisitor89> 🌵
16:14:34 <Kevin L™> Nope.
16:14:59 <Kevin L™> Do you hold one down while typing?
16:15:16 <Dave from B™> hold control and shift
16:15:25 <Dave from B™> You need 3 fingers:)
16:15:41 <ynpvisitor89> hold down control and shift type u1f335release control shift
16:15:57 <Kevin L™> Still can't get it.
16:16:33 <Dave from B™> Doesn't work for me either
16:16:43 <ynpvisitor89> let me see if I can find the code for windows
16:17:04 <Kevin L™> That may help!
16:17:31 <LETS GO CAPS> 102days till geysers for me
16:18:01 <Kevin L™> Well you do have your snow already.
16:19:13 <BSK> :cactus:
16:19:38 <BSK> (just seeing if shortcodes works here - apparently not)
16:19:40 <LETS GO CAPS> i think they will get more
16:20:03 <ynpvisitor64> Lion? SC? LC? NG? who knows????
16:20:07 <LETS GO CAPS> need a Stanley Cup emoji too
16:20:31 <Kevin L™> For Pittsburgh?
16:20:50 <LETS GO CAPS> did you sleep through last season Kevin?
16:21:02 <ynpvisitor89> try alt 127799
16:23:20 <Kevin L™> I get a 7
16:23:40 <Kevin L™> Last season is over.
16:23:41 <LETS GO CAPS> not many peeps waiting for OF
16:23:59 <ynpvisitor94> But DONT try ctrl-alt-shift 127799 as I just did for shits and giggles.
16:24:07 <ynpvisitor39> Looking cold and wet out there!
16:24:44 <ynpvisitor94> My entire display on every Window is now flipped upside down and left on right. Seriously.
16:24:50 <Dave from B™>'s going to be hard to talk my wife into sitting in this over the weekend...maybe I just won't tell her
16:25:10 <Dave from B™> haha 94...want happens if you do it again?
16:25:11 <ynpvisitor39> Snow, snow, snow!
16:25:55 <Dave from B™> It's easier just to type Cactus
16:27:03 <ynpvisitor89> 94 try control alt uparrow
16:27:22 <ynpvisitor89> to flip your screen
16:27:40 <ynpvisitor39> OF 1624
16:27:52 <BSK> I googled it (I was the one who did that, chatted from another device for a moment). I must have hit ctrl+alt+ up arrow instead of 1.
16:28:00 <LETS GO CAPS> OF didnt hang around
16:28:30 <ynpvisitor14> Much better on static
16:34:26 <Kevin L™> 🥨
16:35:12 <BSK> :castle:
16:35:32 <Kevin L™> 🌾
16:35:40 <BSK> Okay, some shortcodes do work. That's how I got castle. So it must be that the shortcodes have to be added to the chat.
16:35:46 <Dave from B™> castle is showing as 1523 ie
16:36:09 <Kevin L™>
16:36:29 <Dave from B™> I need a magnifying glass
16:37:33 <Kevin L™> 🏜 I found one
16:37:43 <ynpvisitor39> Me too!
16:38:24 <Kevin L™> They don't work too good. Hold Windows key and semicolon and they pop up.
16:38:43 <ynpvisitor39> Winter watching has arrived! Fun Fun, Fun!
16:38:46 <Kevin L™> 😎
16:39:00 <BSK> 🎃

16:45:37 <BSK> Kevin, I'm going to be in Vegas weekend of Nov 30
16:46:26 <Kevin L™> Convention?
16:47:16 <BSK> No. Fleetwood Mac. :) Going to Fleetwood Mac on Friday and Hell's Kitchen on Saturday and then some invite-only party at the Luxor (Sue's birthday or something like that).
16:47:55 <LETS GO CAPS> looks like tat tree branch has moved ... had a clearer view of the cabins before
16:48:00 <Kevin L™> Sounds like fun.
16:50:41 <ynpvisitor64> Sure wish I was there!
16:50:47 <LETS GO CAPS> peeps didnt get the OF already went memo?
16:51:46 <ynpvisitor64> I guess not!
16:51:58 <BSK> That looks like a good place to wait for the next 80 minutes to me.
16:52:13 <ynpvisitor64> Not!!
16:53:45 <ynpvisitor64> May just be taking in the view!
16:58:37 <Kevin L™> Must b e from Canada
16:59:04 <ynpvisitor110> kevin,what keystrokes for the cactus?
17:00:03 <Kevin L™> Hold the Windows key and the semicolon and an emoji list will come up.
17:00:49 <Kevin L™> It is near the bottom of the pizza slice
17:00:58 <ynpvisitor110> thanks
17:01:04 <Dave from B™> ✔✔
17:01:07 <LETS GO CAPS> clearig up now
17:02:09 <Kevin L™> I figured it would be under travel. Not too many people eat cactus but I do like prickly pear jelly.
17:03:17 <Dave from B™> 🚍 oncoming bus...look out!
17:04:28 <Kevin L™> 🚂 beats a bus
17:31:33 <Dave from B™> Time to finish up in the market. Have a great evening everyone!
17:31:58 <Kevin L™> Good Knight Dave.
