22:20:35 <ynpvisitor66> person off BW walking towards OF LE notified
22:51:44 <ynpvisitor102> How rare is a 5 Grand day?
22:52:24 <ynpvisitor102> Lion
22:53:35 <ynpvisitor102> Straight and tall
22:54:22 <ynpvisitor55> should be ini
22:56:05 <ynpvisitor55> there have not been many 5 grand days that i know of
23:37:33 <ynpvisitor51> There were some 5 Grand days back a few years ago. In Sept and Oct.
01:16:06 <ynpvisitor102> Lion ie
01:20:36 <ynpvisitor102> OF
02:26:49 <ynpvisitor102> Lion ie
02:27:05 <ynpvisitor102> And Castle seems to be going
05:12:39 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
05:12:48 <Dave from B™> Joe, you have been busy!
05:23:24 <ynpvisitor66> Hi Dave, not much sleep last night, this gives me something to do for those loooong hours :)
05:24:53 <ynpvisitor66> I also record the stream so I can look back to see what I missed'
05:32:36 <ynpvisitor100> yeah 5 Grands yesterday, first time this year I think.
05:33:22 <Dave from B™> Woohoo...6 consecutive ints under 6 hours
05:34:28 <ynpvisitor66> The one at 2445 took me by surprise, was not expecting it
05:34:30 <Dave from B™> It's starting to throw in intervals around 5.5 which helps in trying to get 5 in a day
05:34:46 <ynpvisitor66> 2345*
05:48:13 <ynpvisitor66> Lion 0744
05:49:16 <Dave from B™> That seems like a long interval this late in the series
05:51:51 <ynpvisitor100> interesting to have the NG intermediate so early in a series too
05:52:15 <Dave from B™> Might we get another NG this series?
05:52:35 <ynpvisitor100> why not?
05:58:19 <ynpvisitor5> We had time to spare on the 5th Grand. I was thinking 0007 or something just to be annoying.
05:58:26 <Dave from B™> Graham, with 31F highs next week and better than 50% chance of the white stuff, I think I'm calling an end to my attempts at Steamboat this year.
05:58:55 <ynpvisitor5> Good morning Fluffy
05:59:45 <Dave from B™> Yeah for another Morning!
06:00:16 <Dave from B™> a Triple yesterday
06:01:52 <ynpvisitor5> A long but not one of Fluff's better efforts.
06:02:08 <ynpvisitor100> you know that means the weather will clear up and SB will erupt in the sun on Wed
06:02:37 <Dave from B™> of course, I do. I will keep an eye on the forecast.
06:02:50 <ynpvisitor66> Riverside
06:07:10 <ynpvisitor100> Grand had 5 eruptions a day every 5 days or so back in 2012 or so starting in Sept and went through Oct. It took 4 or 5 days before the times moved slowly back so the first would be just after midnight and the 5th just before midnight. I dont think its done 5 in a day since then until yesterday, so its rare
06:07:54 <Dave from B™> Are you sure we didn't have at least one earlier this year?
06:08:15 <ynpvisitor15> calendar day,yes. I think we had 5 in 24 hours earlier this year though
06:08:28 <ynpvisitor100> its done quite a few 5 in 24 hours this year but it didnt do it long enough to get them in one day
06:09:17 <ynpvisitor100> and they were usially starting at 2,3,4 am and kept having longer intervals to prevent them starting just after midnight
06:10:51 <Dave from B™> Doesn't Morning "normally" take a rest after a triple?
06:13:01 <GO SOMETHING> Heres the first 5 Grand in a day, 1 sept 2012 http://www.geysertimes.org/date.php?date=2012-09-01
06:13:18 <ynpvisitor66> The overnight capture posted, can someone look at the 0425 Castle, I'm not sure major or minor?
06:13:28 <GO SOMETHING> Dave - yes - Trifects Lable day weekend 2013 pretty much killed it
06:13:43 <GO SOMETHING> or Labor Day :)
06:14:33 <GO SOMETHING> i think other trifectas ended up with 5 day delays or more?
06:14:37 <Dave from B™> Graham, loook at who was at the first 2 Grands that day:)
06:15:09 <Dave from B™> Rain chased me away from the last 2 that day
06:15:34 <GO SOMETHING> you were out late :)
06:15:45 <GO SOMETHING> I prefer this day http://www.geysertimes.org/date.php?date=2012-09-04
06:16:53 <Dave from B™> Yep. I wanted catch 5 in a day but you had more willpower than me
06:17:25 <GO SOMETHING> got lucky with that last 5h10m interval
06:19:45 <Dave from B™> How do I look past the last 100 intervals for Grand this year?
06:20:45 <ynpvisitor15> &n=x
06:24:17 <Dave from B™> Remember the 80+ consecutive Grand intervals under 6 hours?
06:29:57 <Dave from B™> Morning Jimbo
06:30:12 <Jimbo Sulphur> Hi Dave
06:31:18 <Dave from B™> 215, from what window do you use the &n=x?
06:31:26 <Dave from B™> 15*
06:32:20 <ynpvisitor...> Looking at UGB intervals the number of wc entries is very large. We would be much lagged and very dependent on the iffy loggers if not for the cam. Some thermals would be completely in the dark.
06:39:12 <Dave from B™> Kent, streaming cam has really helped gazing
06:40:08 <Dave from B™> I was talking to a couple gazers at prison about how GT has changed gazing habits
06:40:38 <Dave from B™> Not as many gazers go out at night because Joe and other wc watchers catch night eruptions
06:41:33 <Dave from B™> The first thing I do when I wakeup at OF is check GT and plan my day
06:42:03 <Dave from B™> Kitt has even mentioned she loves getting BHI texts in the middle of night so she can go see BH
06:42:52 <GO SOMETHING> Dave - get the list or 100 up, and then add &n=200 to the URL to see 200, like this http://www.geysertimes.org/geyser.php?id=Grand&n=200
06:44:45 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Graham.
06:52:31 <ynpvisitor...> LC 0851 0851 ie wc
06:57:27 <ynpvisitor66> steam in F&M area
06:59:31 <ynpvisitor66> probably left over Riverside
07:00:46 <ynpvisitor15> sorry, I was afk - glad Graham answered you. Here's a fun one - http://www.geysertimes.org/geyser.php?id=Steamboat&n=180
07:01:56 <Dave from B™> My son Parker was born 34 eruptions ago. :)
07:02:51 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 15. nice list
07:02:55 <ynpvisitor15> you won't forget that date!
07:03:07 <Dave from B™> nope
07:03:37 <Dave from B™> That was almost a 9 year interval!
07:04:06 <ynpvisitor15> big news!
07:04:15 <Dave from B™> I hope we can beat the record of 29 in a year this year
07:06:16 <ynpvisitor...> NPS needs to plow the road to Norris as long as Steamboat is erupting :)
07:19:27 <BSK> Good morning
07:26:02 <Dave from B™> Morning BSK and Kevin
07:27:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Dave. Bad Knight last Knight.
07:28:19 <Dave from B™> So, when are you going to unplug the camera again and frame me for it?
07:29:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess there were some electricians working in the area yesterday and they shut off power.
07:30:26 <ynpvisitor...> Daisy 0929 wc
07:30:51 <LindaG> Good morning
07:31:23 <ynpvisitor...> Morning Linda
07:35:03 <Dave from B™> Many contractors work in the park this time of year when it is slower. My stainless steel friend has been in the park a few times in the last month
07:38:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Has he seen Steamboat?
07:40:49 <Dave from B™> No. He has no interest
07:42:26 <ynpvisitor15> that's funny
07:43:03 <ynpvisitor...> Zion parking https://www.sltrib.com/news/environment/2018/10/25/washington-county-pays-m/
07:43:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I can see this now. "Dave I was driving by Norris and there was a big steam column. Do you know what that was?"
07:43:52 <Dave from B™> Yeah, Kevin, you'll probably see Steamboat before me and you're not even trying.
07:50:28 <Dave from B™> Hard to believe Zion gets more visitors than YNP. 4.7 million and they are #3 on most visited list
07:54:35 <ynpvisitor66> LC
07:54:47 <Dave from B™> My staff is finally beginning to figure out how big a deal Steamboat is. When you say it has only erupted 167 times in history and you tell them about high flying rocks they begin to listen
07:59:35 <Kevin L™🌵> SR9 through Springdale gets so crowded that residents have a lot of problems getting to their houses. It is a mess.
08:00:57 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the idea of a P&R in Rockville. Lots more room there.
08:01:04 <ynpvisitor66> BH is waiting for you Kevin
08:02:13 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be nice. Just wish we had some light on it for a rainbow.
08:03:43 <ynpvisitor66> F&M or Grotto
08:03:53 <Dave from B™> How far is Rockville from Springdale?
08:04:04 <ynpvisitor66> looks like F&M
08:06:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Just a few miles Dave.
08:06:27 <Jimbo Sulphur> Definitely something strong over there
08:08:19 <ynpvisitor66> we will see how it acts over the next 20 min
08:10:05 <ynpvisitor66> now we need a logs rolled checker
08:11:12 <Dave from B™> Get the car started, Joe!
08:11:30 <ynpvisitor66> I'm ready!
08:12:57 <ynpvisitor66> there is the ~12minpause
08:16:31 <ynpvisitor66> Defiantly F&M based on its action, I'll remove the ? mark
08:17:28 <Dave from B™> Woohoo!
08:19:48 <Dave from B™> F&M is back in the lead
08:19:51 <ynpvisitor66> That was fun! wokr me up again :)
08:20:09 <ynpvisitor66> Woke*
08:20:46 <Dave from B™> Some years its hard to find the top 5 geyser stories of the year. This year we have the 4 biggies plus Ear Spring incident
08:21:21 <Dave from B™> Am I forgetting anything?
08:21:30 <Dave from B™> Fungoid?
08:24:17 <Time for BH> I think your bad luck makes honorable mention.
08:24:32 <Kevin L™🌵> For sure.
08:26:23 <GO SOMETHING> here we go again .... 25 24 19 11+
08:27:42 <GO SOMETHING> Oblong for dishonorable mention?
08:28:21 <Kevin L™🌵> The new thing by Doublet?
08:28:35 <GO SOMETHING> Grand says "what about me with 5 a day?"
08:28:49 <Dave from B™> I disagree...there are other gazers like Holly from Fort Collins who are more worthy:)
08:29:01 <Time for BH> Goggle in that list?
08:29:16 <GO SOMETHING> that counts as the Ear Spring event, along with NG and 2h Aurums
08:29:17 <Dave from B™> I was lumping the Ear Spring Incident all together
08:29:45 <Dave from B™> I bet Morning has erupted more than F&M this year
08:30:11 <Time for BH> Bison wrestling, and of looker?
08:32:43 <GO SOMETHING> could have Dave although it got a late start and 2013 when it was going all summer it only had about 60 eruptions and most were observed ... so may not have reached 26
08:35:51 <GO SOMETHING> 52 eruptions logged that year
08:39:05 <GO GIANT> I guess Giant is the only likely big geyser left
08:44:42 <Dave from B™> Graham, you're comments on Morning make sense. You thinking missed are probably less than 10 then?
08:45:08 <Dave from B™> Time for BH, I don't consider those gazing stories
08:45:59 <Betty> I´m here, BH can go :-)
08:46:00 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
08:46:07 <Betty> hi Dave
08:46:14 <Betty> morning all
08:46:55 <Time for BH> Only if they fixed the loose wire to your button.
08:47:48 <Betty> at least the webcam is working again
08:48:45 <ynpvisitor...> Early?
08:49:27 <Dave from B™> Who has a geyser addiction? When writing up an order for a customer who begins with the letter "O", I put Oblong:)
08:51:01 <Eric ☔> Good Morning
08:51:09 <Eric ☔> I am ready for some BH please
08:51:32 <Dave from B™> Eric, talk to Betty, she's in charge
08:53:03 <ynpvisitor66> I mashed all the buttions...BH would not start :(
08:53:17 <ynpvisitor66> buttons*
08:53:52 <GO GIANT> Dave - I dont know how many were missed, I wouldnt be surprised if half have been missed. Just noting that in 2013 Morning had some sluggish spells. in 1990s it was much more frequent but active periods were shorter
08:54:02 <ynpvisitor12> Geyser addiction - smart phone storage completely filled with screen captures from the Webcam, all nicely organized, of course.
08:56:59 <ynpvisitor66> OF
09:01:57 <ynpvisitor66> Adios have a great day!
09:02:08 <Time for BH> Castle gets no respect.
09:02:30 <Dave from B™> It would get a lot more here if we could see it better
09:02:45 <Dave from B™> Bye Joe
09:09:33 <ynpvisitor...> I think new position will be a whole new world. Not feeling optimistic about down basin though.
09:11:38 <Time for BH> Just looked at Google map. The 60 degree lens angle is right.
09:11:56 <Time for BH> So we will see OF and maybe Giantess to Dome.
09:12:09 <Time for BH> BH to Grand?
09:12:21 <Time for BH> and Castle to Grand?
09:12:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought a 90° was right
09:12:55 <Dave from B™> Castle will still be behind the trees
09:13:21 <Time for BH> Using the very scientific method of a piece of paper folded to about 60 degrees and put on the computer screen.
09:14:31 <ynpvisitor...> Default may have to have OF towards the center
09:14:36 <Time for BH> Yes, but we will have a much better view of it and see more water.
09:15:31 <Betty> SC
09:15:34 <Time for BH> Unless they do something odd, no more default view of what we have now.
09:16:43 <Time for BH> I doubt they will do it, the best would be to move static to this view and do a update like every 10 seconds.
09:19:15 <Time for BH> But all will change when Dave wins the lottery. I m sure he has his powerball ticket now.
09:19:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I think a static on the Inn pointing downbasin would be more possible.
09:19:29 <Dave from B™> nope. no Powerball ticket
09:20:13 <Time for BH> Static on the inn would only get OF. Nothing else
09:20:17 <Dave from B™> I heard a story this morning of a good professional athlete who bought 120 Mega Millions tickets
09:20:42 <ynpvisitor...> I think it was mentioned that the current cam can be converted to a static in seconds. I do not think statics use a lot of bandwidth but I ain't no computerologist. New cam will be wireless.
09:21:11 <Time for BH> One last week blew 2 or 20 grand, can not remember as I do not care what they do with their money.
09:21:11 <Dave from B™> Wireless...hmmm.didn't know that. Thanks, Kent
09:22:25 <Time for BH> Wireless, one more thing to go wrong.
09:23:25 <ynpvisitor...> Supposedly it will transmit to the ranger station. Router should be accessible year around.
09:24:43 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Kent. Do you have anny idea when the change will occur?
09:25:32 <ynpvisitor...> No, just that it is currently being worked on by IT. I think this is common knowledge on the middle platform :)
09:27:17 <Betty> LC
09:27:34 <Dave from B™> haha
09:27:40 <Time for BH> Well if it is like the irrigation ditch people it will take forever. It took at least 2 of them more then a day to cut down one tree this week. I doubt it would make 1/4 cord of firewood.
09:28:49 <Time for BH> Enjoy BH, back in half an hour.
09:29:16 <Ben VL> I've always thought it would be interesting to get a cam in the castle area, it would be easier to see downbasin.
09:29:58 <Eric ☔> grand
09:30:30 <Dave from B™> Ben, there is a great view of many features from Castle
09:30:53 <Dave from B™> Dasiy
09:31:32 <Eric ☔> I didn't see daisy
09:31:37 <Betty> where´s Daisy??
09:31:38 <Dave from B™> nevermind
09:31:38 <ynpvisitor...> That was a good catch Dave.
09:31:43 <Eric ☔> I think you saw castle :-D
09:31:48 <Dave from B™> yep:(
09:32:07 <Dave from B™> I make that mistake if I look quickly
09:32:43 <Eric ☔> Yep, especially when the camera is panning and zooming
09:32:53 <ynpvisitor...> I saw a burp there too. It obviously wasn't Daisy :(
09:34:19 <Betty> what is that behind your name Eric? I cannot recognize it
09:34:49 <Dave from B™> Looks like a treehouse
09:34:57 <Eric ☔> Rain on an umbrella
09:35:08 <Betty> ahh
09:35:27 <Betty> looks like an elephant head
09:36:37 <Eric 🎃> That better?
09:37:03 <Betty> hahaha, looks more like you lol
09:37:05 <Eric 🎃> Let's see if this works.
09:38:00 <Eric 🎃> 8m
09:39:14 <Dave from B™> When I go to SB next, I shold take an offering and put it on the middle platform. What should I bring?
09:39:21 <Eric 👾> I like this alien better :-D
09:41:23 <Eric 👾> I think we have a 1 and done
09:42:30 <Time for BH> Cheese-its
09:43:06 <Eric 🎃> I think you leaving is the offering that SB accepts most often :-P
09:43:39 <Eric 🎃> I suggest wearing a disguise next time.
09:43:54 <Dave from B™> Duh, Eric. That is why I'm trying to offer SB something better!!!!
09:44:23 <Eric 🎃> https://www.amazon.com/Clown-Costume-Circus-Glasses-Accessories/dp/B0773NYY2C
09:44:44 <Eric 🎃> SB might not recognize you.
09:44:53 <Betty> lol
09:45:05 <Betty> and the fishy smell?
09:45:54 <Eric 🎃> "Perfect for fancy dress parties, beach party, hen night, stag night, festivals and hiding from vindictive geysers"
09:47:09 <Dave from B™> Maybe I'll hang a piece of fish on the railing. Do you think NPS would be okay with that for 2 days?
09:47:38 <Betty> you only would attract bears
09:48:09 <Dave from B™> Yep...that's not a good idea
09:50:44 <ynpvisitor...> Black bears have denned. I think most grizzlies will follow this weekend. :$:
09:54:07 <Time for BH> Try this. data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQAAAQABAAD/2wCEAAkGBxMTEhUTExMWFhUXGRoaGRgYGBoYGBcYGhgXGBgXGCAeHSggGBolHR0YITIhJSkrLi4uHSAzODMtNygtLysBCgoKDg0OGxAQGy0lHyUtLS0tLS0tLTUtLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLf/AABEIAPAA0gMBIgACEQEDEQH/xAAcAAACAgMBAQAAAAAAAAAAAAAEBQMGAAIHAQj/xABJEAABAgQDBQUFBAYHBwUAAAABAhEAAyExBBJBBVFhcYEGEyKRoTKxwdHwBxQjQiRSYnKS4RVTc4KisvEzNFRjs8LSFk
09:54:23 <Time for BH> What an uggly link
09:56:47 <Betty> LC
09:57:26 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure I want to click on that
09:59:08 <Betty> Daisy
10:01:21 <Dave from B™> Betty, do you travel much in Europe besides for skiing?
10:01:43 <Betty> not too much
10:02:07 <Betty> mostly in Germany
10:04:35 <Dave from B™> Have you made a decision on YNP for 2019?
10:04:51 <Betty> nope
10:07:04 <Betty> my nephew was interested in coming with us, but he wants to do a professional development. Not sure he will have time for going with us
10:08:41 <Betty> If you ask ME, sure I have a plan ;-)
10:09:04 <Eric 🎃> a nice 1h slice of the seismo in detail from the latest SB eruption: https://service.iris.edu/irisws/timeseries/1/query?net=WY&sta=YNM&cha=HHN&start=2018-10-24T01:20:00&end=2018-10-24T02:20:00&output=plot&width=1400&height=600&loc=01
10:09:33 <Betty> cool
10:10:22 <Eric 🎃> That is the North/South shake graph, but East/West and Up/Down look similar
10:11:16 <Betty> bah
10:11:24 <Betty> white X
10:11:28 <Eric 🎃> I am curious what the webcorder shown on this page shows
10:11:47 <Betty> :$:
10:12:02 <Eric 🎃> :star:
10:14:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Is it just me or is streaming down again
10:14:35 <Betty> it´s down
10:17:50 <Eric 🎃> boo
10:18:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke it
10:20:07 <ynpvisitor12> The spinning circle, round and round and round and... :p:p:p
10:21:19 <Kevin L™🌵> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFEewD4EVwU
10:23:15 <Dave from B™> really?
10:23:20 <Betty> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGNiXGX2nLU
10:23:22 <Eric 🎃> no
10:23:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes Dave, just play innocent....
10:24:14 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I've told you not to stick thinks in outlets
10:24:20 <Dave from B™> things*
10:25:15 <Eric 🎃> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpf5jBhjapo
10:25:38 <Eric 🎃> I only see an X
10:25:43 <Eric 🎃> no spinning circle here
10:25:47 <Betty> good one too, Eric
10:26:05 <ynpvisitor12> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP-MbfHFUqs
10:26:29 <Dave from B™> no moving or stationary letters here
10:26:52 <Eric 🎃> I get a big white X
10:27:03 <Eric 🎃> X X X
10:27:07 <Betty> same here
10:27:53 <Eric 🎃> I bet you they are working on getting the network setup for the new camera
10:28:03 <Eric 🎃> That has to be done at some point
10:28:48 <Dave from B™> I'll go with yesterday's reason
10:30:23 <ynpvisitor12> OF ie static WC
10:30:45 <Eric 🎃> You might even be able to see BHI on static now
10:30:47 <ynpvisitor12> NIce crowd, I may add
10:32:39 <Time for BH> I am back, what did Dave do now?
10:33:02 <Betty> back
10:33:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Its alive!
10:35:51 <Time for BH> Not sure how the have it all wired, I would think having the old equipment in one place and the new stuff in the ranger station would present difficulties.
10:36:48 <Dave from B™> From a security standpoint, ranger station makes more sense
10:37:20 <Eric 🎃> depends on how they are configuring it. By "ranger station" I assume we are talking about the VEC?
10:38:21 <Dave from B™> Isn't ranger station and end of OFI parking lot across from OFSL?
10:38:24 <Eric 🎃> The Century Link building in the UGB has a camera behind it as well...I would love to see that feed :-D
10:38:29 <Dave from B™> at*
10:39:43 <Time for BH> I doubt gossip at a geyser would confuse the 2
10:39:53 <Eric 🎃> Anyone know a high up century link employee that might have access or know someone that does?
10:41:03 <Eric 🎃> Also, it would make sense to put the communications stuff in the VEC since the foundation already has a presence with their gift shop there.
10:41:12 <Time for BH> From my experience, they know nothing. I think they have the same last name, Schutlz.
10:42:58 <ynpvisitor12> That would explain all of the "escape holes" on Geyser Hill
10:42:58 <Time for BH> I find that out 2 or 3 times a year when someone rips out my phone or dsl wires someplace in the system.
10:44:31 <Eric 🎃> Wake me up when BHI starts....
10:44:35 <Time for BH> I think they need some kind of tower to put the wirelsss stuff on. Already have it at the ranger station.
10:45:17 <Time for BH> Too far to not use some point to point antenna.
10:46:10 <Time for BH> Also would have to look at my pictures, I do not think there is a clear line of sight from the flag pole to the vec.
10:47:16 <Time for BH> wrong. they could put one on any of the eves.
10:48:44 <Time for BH> Or possibly behind the glass above the desk.
10:52:20 <Time for BH> Yosemite claims 2 more. Interesting how they handle people in the different parks.
10:53:11 <ynpvisitor12> Fortnite dance in progress

11:00:41 <Time for BH> Well, no bee today. Enjoy a long string of LC's.

11:03:08 <Betty> thanks Joe
11:03:34 <ynpvisitor66> yw Betty.
11:03:44 <Betty> indy on static too
11:04:41 <Betty> I like tihs view of static
11:05:19 <Dave from B™> Guess I won't go to lunch
11:09:01 <ynpvisitor28> hey, a few BH watchers
11:10:04 <Betty> too many walk away
11:10:32 <ynpvisitor66> puff from Marmot
11:10:44 <Betty> yep, saw that too
11:13:02 <Betty> Lion is ready too
11:16:10 <Jimbo Sulphur> Got back to this screen Just In Time
11:16:22 <ynpvisitor66> Bee
11:16:23 <Betty> poof
11:16:30 <ynpvisitor28> too bad the sun is not out there
11:16:39 <Betty> nice Jimbo
11:16:48 <ynpvisitor10> Delay is nice.
11:17:08 <Jimbo Sulphur> Work is so distracting
11:17:29 <Jimbo Sulphur> Nice whips
11:17:46 <ynpvisitor10> Work, you are not talking about Dave are you?
11:18:00 <ynpvisitor28> other people work 10
11:18:00 <Jimbo Sulphur> No, just me
11:18:18 <Dave from B™> Kevin, outfield seats are down to $500
11:18:38 <ynpvisitor28> what's a plane ticket to LA cost? And then hotel?
11:18:48 <ynpvisitor10> That is a lot to see your team loose.
11:18:50 <ynpvisitor28> you can't camp out there like at SB
11:19:33 <ynpvisitor28> SWEEP ahead maybe
11:19:34 <ynpvisitor10> I thought LA was like San Francisco.
11:19:45 <ynpvisitor...> Not a bad eruption even without the sun
11:19:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Still can't believe they pulled the pitcher when they did.
11:19:59 <ynpvisitor28> Dave likes his teams loose
11:20:15 <ynpvisitor10> Too bad they do not play the best of 3, it would be all over but the riots.
11:20:16 <ynpvisitor28> unfortunately loose pitchers, not such a great thing...
11:21:04 <Jimbo Sulphur> They gotta learn to breathe through their eyelids
11:21:41 <ynpvisitor10> Well, that was fun.
11:26:00 <Dave from B™> What does a loose pitcher have to do with anything. That's his own business.
11:26:29 <Eric 🎃> Dang...txt came in way late :-(
11:26:32 <Betty> sure, sun now :p
11:26:50 <Betty> dang, Eric
11:27:43 <Betty> LC
11:37:26 <ynpvisitor76> Do we know it there are watchers at Fountain/Morning?
11:39:17 <Betty> Aurum
11:39:18 <Betty> .
11:39:28 <Betty> oooops, NO
11:39:51 <ynpvisitor76> I saw that too but it didn't last.
11:39:56 <Betty> too far right
11:40:17 <Kevin L™🌵> I was wondering if I needed an eye exam
11:40:45 <ynpvisitor76> Yes. but not because of Aurum :)
11:40:55 <Betty> think it was sunlight on Giantess steam
11:41:57 <Betty> I´d buy a Giantess eruption...
11:42:44 <Betty> 4 years 269 days since the last
11:42:53 <Betty> it is due
11:43:08 <ynpvisitor76> I am afraid Giantess has passes away. This was the year but it didn't happen.
11:43:19 <Betty> true
11:44:25 <Betty> I made fun with some visitors at Steamboat when they asked if it is supposed to erupt soon
11:44:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I think Dave broke it
11:44:47 <Betty> I sais yes, it is in its window
11:45:26 <Betty> they asked about the window, and I said window is 4 days to 50 years :-)
11:46:05 <Betty> but then I said chances were good to have it day 5-8 since the last
11:46:50 <Betty> but reactions first were great
11:47:20 <Betty> some I got hooked
11:47:34 <Betty> especially Nancy
11:47:40 <ynpvisitor76> :)
11:47:52 <Betty> hi Nancy, if you are here
11:51:26 <Dave from B™> How long have you been waiting is the most popular question
11:52:55 <Betty> we sure heard this one too
11:56:39 <Dave from B™> So, do any of you have friends who think you are plain "wacko" for liking geysers?
11:58:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Some think I am wacko but geysers have nothing to do with it.
11:58:27 <Betty> Riverside
11:59:11 <Betty> friends? Brothers!
11:59:35 <Dave from B™> :D but he goes with you every trip!
11:59:47 <Betty> not that one :-)
12:00:00 <Kevin L™🌵> My Brother thought I was a bit strange but now that he has been there he enjoys them, even the wait.
12:00:41 <Betty> may 2 elder brothers shake their head about us
12:00:47 <Dave from B™> People's views do change if you can get them to a big geyser
12:00:52 <Betty> my
12:04:23 <Betty> OF
12:12:40 <Betty> OF was a long
12:13:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Missed the button
12:18:38 <ynpvisitor66> ffmpeg logcheck
12:19:02 <ynpvisitor66> oops wrong computer
12:19:20 <Dave from B™> wb, Joe
12:19:56 <ynpvisitor66> Hi again Dave
12:32:44 <Kent> Kevin you have a forwarded email from me.
12:35:26 <Kent> Good looking pooch
12:40:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Interesting Kent
12:41:14 <Kent> I like pooches a lot more than bears right now :)
12:41:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy
12:41:38 <Betty> Daisy
12:41:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Would have been handy to have a pooch with you at that point.
12:46:18 <Dave from B™> Kent, with all the hiking you do is this your first bear encounter?
12:48:56 <Betty> .
12:48:56 <Betty> .
12:48:57 <Betty> .
12:48:57 <Betty> .
12:48:58 <Betty> .
12:49:02 <Betty> Aurum
12:49:39 <Kent> No doubt this time
12:49:51 <Dave from B™> I missed it
12:49:53 <Betty> good to have it back on static
12:50:09 <Kevin L™🌵> All I saw was OF steam.
12:50:54 <Kent> Yes, static deserves a cookie
12:53:45 <Kent> Dave, by far my closest grizzly either hiking or in a vehicle. Strange that this would happen now that I can no longer hike distances. I have seen bears out hiking but they have always been a ways away.
12:55:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Good thing this was not your last encounter.
12:55:16 <Kent> :)
12:56:18 <Dave from B™> Glad you survived. Bet you never forget your flashlight or bear spray again
13:03:35 <Dave from B™> Kent, are you coming back for Closing weekend?
13:05:44 <Dave from B™> wb, Graham
13:06:18 <GO GIANT> thanks, at home now and wrapping up work.....i dial int meetings on the drive home :)
13:06:43 <Betty> hi and bye Graham, time for sleep
13:06:49 <Kent> I don't think so. I have reservations, but the forecast is terrible.
13:06:51 <Betty> night all
13:06:52 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
13:06:57 <Dave from B™> say hi to Thomas
13:07:00 <Kent> Night
13:07:05 <Betty> will do
13:07:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Betty
13:08:24 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how is the overcrowding at Grand Canyon with over 6 million visitors a year?
13:09:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't been there for a while but I understand that there is a lot of foot and vehicle traffic on the south rim. North rim isn't as bad.
13:23:15 <Eric 🎃> Kevin, don't forget to log your daisy
13:23:35 <Dave from B™> What about my Daisy?:)
13:24:09 <GO GIANT> FYI Trifectas in 2013 were followed by 5, 6, 9, 55 day + intervals
13:24:36 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Graham. So, no one should be at Morning then
13:24:43 <Dave from B™> GO GIANT
13:25:18 <GO GIANT> seems unlikely that Mrning will go quickly .... but who knows. This is 2018 :)
13:26:25 <Dave from B™> If I get asked if all the big geyser activity is a sign of the Supervolcano eruption is soon one more time, I'm gonna scream
13:27:01 <Jimbo Sulphur> Tell 'em yes, it will be soon on the geological timescale
13:27:36 <Dave from B™> This was our snarky remark to when SB was going to erupt next when on the platform
13:27:43 <Dave from B™> That*
13:28:20 <GO GIANT> 2012 has NG, Morning, and 5 Grands a day
13:28:55 <Eric 🎃> Hey Dave, is all the big geyser activity a sign of the Supervolcano eruption soon?
13:29:00 <Dave from B™> Is this best gazing calendar year in history
13:29:07 <Kent> :)
13:29:16 <Eric 🎃> Waits for scream :-D
13:29:22 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric:)
13:29:35 <Kent> Nothing like a little salt in the wound
13:29:45 <Eric 🎃> Can you do it in the freezer, I would like Ice Scream :-D
13:29:55 <Dave from B™> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiQZ0dGQuIA
13:30:06 <Dave from B™> :D:D
13:30:14 <Dave from B™> I love you guys
13:30:16 <GO GIANT> 2012 was exciting at the time, but missed the two biggest geysers ... so it must have really been a disappointing year
13:31:06 <GO GIANT> we shd stay away as the next decade will be an underperforming time
13:31:26 <Eric 🎃> I hear you about sitting on the SB platform...only so many times you can answer the same question without getting frustrated.
13:32:01 <Eric 🎃> I liked F&M sit...nobody really bothers you there.
13:32:29 <Dave from B™> Eric, F&M is too far away for most visitors
13:32:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Back in the 80's they made a sign with the most common questions and answers. The tourists thought it was pretty funny, Rangers not so much.
13:32:39 <Eric 🎃> Other than having to tell chinese tourists to get off the features!
13:32:48 <Dave from B™> Besides, everyone knows that is a homeless camp, anyway
13:33:04 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
13:33:35 <Kent> I remember that. An inside joke but a good laugh.
13:37:43 <Dave from B™> So, a youth instructor was with his class of kids at the SB middle platform. He told his kids there is an easy way to remember what is around most geysers. ...
13:38:12 <Dave from B™> Just remember "Guys are right"
13:38:13 <ynpvisitor31> of
13:41:12 <Dave from B™> Well that does it....if you're not going to laugh at my jokes, I'm outta here. Have a great evening everyone!:)
13:41:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight Dave.
13:42:25 <Eric 🎃> Night Dave
15:07:51 <ynpvisitor28> a few hearty souls still in the basin
15:09:00 <ynpvisitor85> The way it looks it will soon be GO GIANT's kind of weather.
15:11:46 <ynpvisitor28> He may be GO GIANT for quite a few days before it erupts, the Sox will have won by then
15:13:54 <ynpvisitor85> OF 1713 wc
15:13:59 <ynpvisitor28> Daisy
15:14:17 <ynpvisitor28> will Grand go over 6 hours?
15:15:08 <ynpvisitor28> one more Turban...
15:17:09 <ynpvisitor28> do we have a cam op?
15:18:31 <Eric 🎃> Grand will go in the next 5 minutes
15:29:23 <ynpvisitor28> it just made it Eric
15:29:27 <ynpvisitor28> one minute to spare
15:29:31 <ynpvisitor85> Grand 1728 wc
15:29:32 <ynpvisitor28> Grand 1728
15:35:35 <Eric 🎃> No I missed it...should have gone by 17:23! Bad Grand!
15:36:31 <ynpvisitor28> hahaha
15:36:42 <ynpvisitor28> flirting with 6 hours...
15:36:46 <Eric 🎃> But it did make it under 6h
15:36:48 <Eric 🎃> Yep
15:37:21 <Eric 🎃> SC looks hot
15:39:19 <ynpvisitor28> would we know if it paused?
15:39:59 <ynpvisitor28> is that a 2nd?
15:40:09 <Eric 🎃> I don't think so
15:40:17 <Eric 🎃> 1 and done again....
15:42:56 <ynpvisitor85> I entered start
15:44:19 <Bill> Evening
15:44:46 <ynpvisitor85> Hey Bill
15:46:05 <ynpvisitor28> any more news about logger for Morning? It would have been nice to have yesterday on there...
15:46:20 <Bill> I have it ready to deploy..... next week
15:46:35 <Bill> today was UGB. I put a logger out at giant today and did a whole bunch of data collection
15:46:37 <ynpvisitor28> do you know where you will put it?
15:46:52 <Bill> Nope, but i have a 17m cable to work with
15:47:16 <ynpvisitor28> back side run off channel might work best
15:47:42 <ynpvisitor28> you can see where the water has been going
15:48:02 <ynpvisitor28> thanks so much for getting one out there
15:48:54 <Bill> Yeah, happy to!
15:50:48 <ynpvisitor28> will you be checking them through the winter?
15:51:35 <Bill> Negative
15:52:02 <ynpvisitor28> so it will get checked in the spring?
15:52:36 <ynpvisitor28> I hope your time away was nice.
15:52:58 <ynpvisitor85> Bill, you are going to be with us through the winter?
15:53:47 <ynpvisitor28> your job is full time, correct?
15:59:10 <Bill> ynpvisitor28, correct about the spring time and correct about full time!
16:00:31 <Bill> I'm technically considered "term" but it should be for a 4 year period. I won't have to deal with the furlough either.
16:03:19 <ynpvisitor28> nice Bill, it must be good to be settled for a while
16:05:23 <ynpvisitor28> will you grab Fountain data while you are out there?
16:06:46 <Bill> We only got to UGB today
16:07:25 <Bill> Probably mid-late next week
16:07:29 <Bill> I need a day to do NGB as well
16:07:40 <ynpvisitor28> I get that, I mean when you are putting Morning logger out there, will you read FTN logger?
16:08:02 <Bill> yup!
16:08:21 <Bill> Sorry, it's been a long day. Downloading some data before i head home for the night
16:08:31 <ynpvisitor28> awesome, sorry for the barrage of questions
16:08:53 <Bill> No worries, it's why i jumped on here :)
16:09:10 <GO GIANT> nice as ftn logger will give people interval data to speculate on Morning and durations for duals and trifectas
16:12:22 <ynpvisitor17> If we're lucky, Fountain durations might give advance warning of when Morning wants to go.
16:12:46 <ynpvisitor17> Did that work some of the time in 2012-13?
16:13:09 <ynpvisitor28> it has been debunked as significant, yet a few times, it did seem to work
16:13:30 <ynpvisitor28> this whole thing with Morning now is MUCH different than 2012-13
16:13:46 <ynpvisitor28> no 11 hour intervals with multiple Morning's Thiefs
16:13:55 <ynpvisitor28> no 50 minute FTNS
16:14:01 <ynpvisitor28> very different
16:23:39 <ynpvisitor17> Thanks for the info. I'm definitely a novice with Morning.
16:24:55 <GO GIANT> ftn durations did get longer late season tho and i think short durations did not lead to Mormning in 2013
16:24:57 <GO GIANT> Dep
16:25:27 <GO GIANT> when ftn got up to 40min you had better chances for Morning next time I think
16:26:14 <GO GIANT> and ftn intervals got longer in the fall, went up from 5 to 8h or so
16:27:48 <GO GIANT> but since the logger is looked at months later, its checking intervbals thats interesting. a 12h interval might mean Morning erupted afte 8h
16:28:25 <GO GIANT> lonhg durations may mean a dual
16:28:33 <GO GIANT> very long may be trifecta
16:34:09 <Kevin L™🌵> 6,8 eq in Greece rang the OF seismo
16:49:36 <ynpvisitor45> Is that the jagged line on the seismo?
16:50:48 <ynpvisitor17> More the wiggles starting around 5:45pm.
16:51:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.

20:39:51 <Kevin L™😥> You would think that under a full moon a team with a wolf mascot could at least score.
