22:07:00 <ynpvisitor58> Yes
22:07:18 <ynpvisitor78> :)
22:07:41 <ynpvisitor78> I was just about to shut the computer off and go to bed.
22:08:44 <ynpvisitor78> And that is BH!
22:14:49 <ynpvisitor58> Nice just for us
22:15:05 <ynpvisitor78> That was a good way to end a bad Knight.
22:15:28 <ynpvisitor78> See you tomorrow.

04:12:04 <ynpvisitor999> morning all
04:18:40 <ynpvisitor83> Hello DG
04:25:10 <ynpvisitor83> Daisy
04:42:34 <ynpvisitor83> Lion
04:51:51 <LindaG🎄> Good morning!
04:59:38 <ynpvisitor83> Hi Linda
04:59:57 <ynpvisitor83> bye Linda
05:02:12 <ynpvisitor83> Welcome Dave
05:02:24 <ynpvisitor999> morning Dave
05:06:00 <Dave from B™> Morning DG, Joe
05:08:35 <ynpvisitor83> anticipating a busy day Dave?
05:09:31 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure. First time we have ever been open on Xmas Eve. Only open 10-1 today. We missed a record day on Friday but Saturday we had our best day ever
05:09:35 <LindaG🎄> Hi Dave and 83 and 999
05:09:44 <Dave from B™> Hi Linda
05:09:55 <ynpvisitor83> Hi Linda
05:10:14 <ynpvisitor999> morning Linda
05:11:04 <ynpvisitor83> DG is it afternoon for you?
05:11:14 <LindaG🎄> So nice to see things moving
05:11:45 <ynpvisitor999> yes 83
05:12:07 <ynpvisitor999> I'm most of the year 8 hours ahead of Yellowstone
05:12:26 <ynpvisitor83> It has been steady no dropouts since it came back at 1000byesterday
05:13:00 <ynpvisitor83> Well then Good afternoon DG
05:13:20 <LindaG🎄> Knock on wood when you say that 😉
05:14:03 <ynpvisitor83> Yes I was almost afraid to mention that :)
05:14:46 <ynpvisitor999> Maybe a little christmas present for all of you: North Goggle(s) easily had 400 eruptions this year and we're probably going to make 500 as well. Worth of note is that, based on solely NG's logger files, it probably had its largests eruptions this year during a Lion series. Not surprisingly this almost invariably happened at night...
05:15:56 <ynpvisitor83> thanks DG
05:16:43 <LindaG🎄> Very nice, thanks for researching that. 🎁
05:17:11 <ynpvisitor999> I'm not done yet, though. Probably half-way-ish NG's first logger file
05:17:43 <ynpvisitor999> correction: almost done with logger file 1
05:19:09 <ynpvisitor999> unfortunately sometimes the temperature difference between eruption spike and ambient is so small, I simply cannot be 100% certain if there was an actual eruption
05:19:41 <ynpvisitor999> and thus I won't count it as an eruption
05:21:50 <ynpvisitor83> Do you think those small changes were a good boil
05:21:54 <GO SANTA> morning. I guess Santa is working his way round the eastern hemisphere already
05:23:43 <ynpvisitor83> I remember when Graham was there and reporting NG boils
05:23:46 <LindaG🎄> Thank goodness they set aside money in the budget for him! 😉
05:24:21 <ynpvisitor999> not sure, 83, but I do cross-check with GT for a live entry (wc or in-basin) and based on that I then can enter it as an E time. If even then the trace is too unclear, I don't enter it as E
05:24:23 <ynpvisitor83> The US has no control over Santa :)
05:26:32 <ynpvisitor999> 142 E times for NG's first logger file
05:26:34 <ynpvisitor83> Santa was doing his thing long before we became a nation :)
05:26:50 <LindaG🎄> 🤗 that's a very good thing
05:26:57 <ynpvisitor83> :)
05:28:52 <Dave from B™> I asked Santa for a live SB eruption for 2019
05:29:26 <ynpvisitor83> So have you been good?
05:29:33 <ynpvisitor88> you need more than one :)
05:29:52 <GO SANTA> thanks for going through the logger data DG. I logged boils the day Ear Spring erupted
05:30:00 <GO SANTA> they are notes on GT
05:30:38 <GO SANTA> i reprt them because when its having boils it can erupt on the rises
05:31:14 <ynpvisitor999> Thanks
05:31:41 <GO SANTA> agree the US doesnt control Santa. Its the UK that sets Santa's schedule because of GMT
05:32:48 <ynpvisitor83> agreed
05:33:48 <LindaG🎄> Santa transcends time 😆
05:35:10 <ynpvisitor83> The years that I have been good, Santa treated me very well :)
05:36:02 <ynpvisitor83> Unfortunatly there were not many times that I was good :)
05:36:22 <LindaG🎄> 🎅
05:37:51 <LindaG🎅> Of ie
05:37:59 <ynpvisitor83> Those Bad years atleast lightened Santa'd load
05:38:27 <ynpvisitor83> Santa"s*
05:38:44 <LindaG🎅> A good samaritan indeed😊
05:38:45 <ynpvisitor83> I can't type
05:39:14 <ynpvisitor999> looks like you got a Dave keyboard instead of coal this year :)
05:40:05 <ynpvisitor83> No DG, there is an idiot behind this keyboard :)
05:40:18 <LindaG🎅> I use a tablet and it's difficult typing on that
05:41:39 <ynpvisitor83> I need a keyboard that operates on thoughts...well maybe NOT
05:43:24 <GO SANTA> no extra NG eruptions on GT, didn't happen
05:43:53 <ynpvisitor999> I'm saving them up, Graham :)
05:44:29 <GO SANTA> its still not Christmas Day here, so you have time to get my gift ready
05:45:30 <GO SANTA> and i am in Yellowstone Time Zone, so you have more time
05:51:00 <ynpvisitor83> Graham, Denver?
05:52:17 <GO SANTA> yes
05:52:59 <GO SANTA> Lion
05:53:14 <ynpvisitor83> Nice, you get to spend tine with family again
05:53:27 <ynpvisitor83> time*
05:55:05 <GO SANTA> yes, its nice here. no snow tho :(
05:56:36 <ynpvisitor83> Its white here, snow left over from thanksgiving thereabout
05:58:21 <ynpvisitor83> Lion 8th in series if you count the minor
06:14:07 <GO SANTA> santa can't quit!
06:23:14 <ynpvisitor32> Geyser carol this year is cute.
06:23:53 <Dave from B™> Yeah, it was fun
06:24:54 <Kent> Good morning peeps and #s
06:25:33 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kent
06:25:38 <Kent> Even though I am not a gazer it has been an amazing year for Yellowstone. :heart:
06:26:28 <Dave from B™> Morning Kent
06:32:19 <GO SANTA> not a gazer, what do you mean Kent .. you are a gazer
06:33:14 <Dave from B™> He is in denial:)
06:33:30 <Dave from B™> Morning Craig
06:33:41 <Corless> morning Dave, and everyone
06:33:55 <Dave from B™> BTW, Craig, it would probably take me 3 years to grow a beard like yours:)
06:33:56 <Corless> maybe he meant that he is not a Geezer, like a lot of us here
06:35:41 <ynpvisitor41> No, he’s a geezer
06:35:49 <Dave from B™> haha
06:35:50 <Corless> growing a beard is easy.... jusr be lazy and do nothing at all :)
06:40:43 <Dave from B™> At what age do you become a geezer?
06:41:12 <Corless> when you get too lazy to shave...
06:41:32 <Dave from B™> hahaha
06:45:05 <ynpvisitor83> Craig, were you at SB June 6th?
06:46:09 <ynpvisitor83> Sorry June 10 th
06:46:54 <Corless> let me check my pics, hang on
06:47:36 <LindaG🎅> Santa back
06:47:49 <Corless> no, we were there May 18th and 19th
06:48:34 <ynpvisitor83> thanks
06:49:13 <LindaG🎅> Good Morning new gazers!
06:49:29 <LindaG🎅> Or geezers 😉
06:53:52 <Corless> HI Linda
06:54:59 <ynpvisitor58> white bugs
07:01:09 <ynpvisitor999> 142+56 = 198 E times for NG with first and second logger file done. #2 was a tough one
07:01:11 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
07:02:07 <ynpvisitor999> Tough in the way that there weren't clear spikes, even though it erupted after cross-checking with GT
07:03:21 <ynpvisitor999> of course you don't want us to see other geysers, OF
07:05:31 <GO SANTA> not sure where the logger is, the minors dont put out much mre water than some of the heavy overflows
07:06:32 <ynpvisitor999> it seems it's about 1 or 2 minutes away from NG's vent, so probably in some runoff channel near the boardwalk or so
07:07:50 <GO SANTA> how many were not on GT, were the numbers you listed not on GT?
07:09:59 <ynpvisitor999> No idea how many weren't on GT, Graham. This is just the number of likely eruptions the logger picked up (the logger apparantly only picks up eruptions, but if it picks up heavy overflow, it's indistinguishable from eruption spikes)
07:37:07 <ynpvisitor999> sigh... Only 6 confirmable NG's in its third (and for now, last) logger file
07:37:21 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
07:37:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
07:37:50 <LindaG🎅> Hi Kevin
07:38:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Linda
07:38:16 <ynpvisitor999> which makes 204 confirmable E times in total in NG's three logger files
07:46:20 <ynpvisitor...> Yellow on "Predictions" new? I like it.
07:46:57 <Kevin L™🌵> That means it is past the window.
07:47:23 <ynpvisitor...> Has the color always changed like that?
07:48:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure. Eric is good about upgrades.
07:48:13 <ynpvisitor...> I may just be confirming that I am a geezer.
07:49:16 <Kevin L™🌵> You may be right. I think geezer is more a condition of mind and body than of age.
07:49:34 <ynpvisitor...> Both true from me :(
07:56:28 <LindaG🎅> I've seen the yellow when out of window
08:01:36 <ynpvisitor999> if I recall correctly, predictions have always become yellow after the window ever since they were added
08:01:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Just saw a Have Gun Will Travel where Dan Blocker was the bad guy. Hard to imagine Hoss Cartwright as a bad guy!
08:01:57 <LindaG🎅> Not Hoss!
08:02:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember a Perry Mason where Burt Reynolds was a juvenile delinquent.
08:04:02 <LindaG🎅> For some reason that's easier to imagine
08:08:11 <Corless> was Ned Beatty with him?
08:08:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Not on that trip! :)
08:11:42 <Corless> good, Burt gets Ned in some bad situations
08:13:03 <Betty> happy Christmas Eve all
08:13:09 <LindaG🎅> Check out algae mtn view on glacier website
08:13:15 <ynpvisitor999> same to you Betty
08:13:20 <LindaG🎅> Or apgar mtn
08:13:29 <Betty> evening DG
08:13:30 <Kevin L™🌵> For sure. I liked the one guy that made the comment when they used that river for the Atlanta Olympics kayak run that is Ned Beatty couldn't make it, what chance did a Frenchman in bicycle pants have.
08:13:42 <Betty> morning Linda and Kevin
08:14:17 <LindaG🎅> Good morning Betty and happy Christmas eve to you too.
08:14:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Fröhliche Weihnachten. How is skiing?
08:14:22 <Corless> LOL
08:14:48 <Betty> skiing was fun
08:15:39 <Kevin L™🌵> You back now?
08:16:00 <Betty> yes. since yesterday evening
08:19:48 <Betty> Lion
08:20:19 <ynpvisitor999> #10 in series
08:20:19 <Betty> minor
08:20:21 <ynpvisitor999> minor so far
08:21:35 <ynpvisitor999> and a minor
08:35:54 <ynpvisitor999> keep going, Lion
08:36:23 <ynpvisitor999> boo
08:37:59 <LindaG🎅> Blue sky
08:41:45 <LindaG🎅> Of
08:47:22 <ynpvisitor999> looks like Bulger
09:04:38 <BSK> Good morning(ish)
09:05:26 <Betty> morning Katie
09:05:32 <LindaG🎅> Morning!
09:06:06 <ynpvisitor999> morning
09:12:30 <ynpvisitor41> Snow has become a photo mound
09:13:50 <Betty> ghg5
09:20:20 <Betty> NG?
09:20:59 <ynpvisitor90> yes on delay
09:21:23 <ynpvisitor90> 10 to 15seconds worth
09:21:24 <ynpvisitor41> I saw it!
09:21:37 <ynpvisitor90> don't blink!
09:22:27 <ynpvisitor999> guess I missed it :(
09:26:36 <Kevin L™🌵> It took Aurum lessons.
09:34:25 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
09:34:53 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
09:35:11 <ynpvisitor999> long interval for Grand
09:36:57 <ynpvisitor91> Not much of a Grand start
09:37:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Bee burp.
09:41:44 <ynpvisitor999> 7m
09:42:13 <ynpvisitor999> b1 done
09:42:23 <ynpvisitor999> 7½m!
09:42:32 <ynpvisitor999> 2nd
09:43:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Do I hear 3?
09:43:27 <ynpvisitor999> unsure, but there's a good chance
09:43:40 <ynpvisitor999> b2 done
09:44:35 <ynpvisitor999> 3rd
09:44:36 <ynpvisitor999> .
09:44:37 <ynpvisitor999> .
09:44:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Doesn't look like it
09:44:38 <ynpvisitor999> .
09:44:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Yea!
09:45:08 <ynpvisitor25> too bad we could not be up close, yet yeah for a 3b
09:45:58 <ynpvisitor999> 4th pretty please? :)
09:46:22 <ynpvisitor25> too late for a 4th
09:47:51 <ynpvisitor25> I see Show has become a plaything for tourists now.
09:47:53 <Betty> really? a 3b and I missed it? :-(
09:47:56 <ynpvisitor25> oops, SNOW
09:48:46 <ynpvisitor...> With all the benches he had to sit on our friend :(
09:49:18 <ynpvisitor25> I think recognizing him as a snowman of any type now would be very difficult
09:49:29 <ynpvisitor...> :)
09:51:21 <LindaG🎅> Two adults and kid posed on him so they could have a pic taken with OF in background. Kid had already destroyed him I think.
09:51:41 <ynpvisitor25> he got pummeled yesterday
09:52:08 <ynpvisitor25> too bad no one posted Grand from in basin!
09:52:34 <LindaG🎅> I guess I missed 3b also. 😔
09:53:22 <ynpvisitor999> I think Grand felt sad I missed NG, so it went for a 3b :)
09:53:38 <Betty> :-)
10:12:27 <ynpvisitor999> oh hi white bugs. It would be better for you to leave, though
10:15:16 <Betty> OF
10:15:32 <ynpvisitor25> somewhere out there...
10:18:24 <ynpvisitor25> North Entrance looks like springtime
10:20:01 <ynpvisitor25> I'm glad this squall waited until after Grand
10:20:19 <Betty> yep
10:24:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Betty brought the snow back with her.
10:32:00 <LindaG🎅> Cute
10:52:44 <LindaG🎅> Amazing it cleared!
10:54:32 <Betty> would be nice if this was Oblong
10:56:21 <Betty> or Mastiff
11:14:54 <GO SANTA> 547 NG logged, yeah. Thanks DG. Might need to clean up some since i see there was 1min interval
11:15:50 <ynpvisitor999> I'm busy doing that
11:16:31 <GO SANTA> ah, thanks. 6 Nov, 21 and 22 Oct...
11:17:00 <GO SANTA> might need to get a window put on GT so it will merge some
11:17:59 <ynpvisitor999> About 3m should do I think. Though it won't join current entries :(
11:19:30 <GO SANTA> yeah that should work. I think the shortest rise and fall cycles were 5min
11:26:16 <ynpvisitor999> how lame - GT doesn't even join ie and E for NG
11:29:51 <GO SANTA> gives you something to do. Are you putting them in as comments when the dont match?
11:30:17 <ynpvisitor999> yes
11:39:51 <ynpvisitor999> Joe, can you please either remove or mark this eruption as exact? It would help with NG's E times
11:51:26 <ynpvisitor58> DG. it is now exact
11:52:39 <ynpvisitor58> if that does not work let me know
11:53:02 <ynpvisitor999> thanks Joe :)
11:56:21 <Betty> OF
11:57:30 <ynpvisitor58> Hey Graham, I told you my furnace was broken, well $25 later ordering saturday from Amazon the ignitor arrived here at noon and I replaced it ant now I have heat :):)
11:58:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice!
11:58:25 <GO SANTA> good for you
11:58:33 <ynpvisitor999> that's nice
11:58:37 <GO SANTA> good for another winter or many
12:01:14 <ynpvisitor58> yes, i'm ordering another spare ignitor
12:12:53 <ynpvisitor58> Looked like indy for a moment
12:20:57 <Betty> Riverside
12:58:40 <LindaG🎅> Beehive is brewing out there
13:00:33 <ynpvisitor999> I've fixed all but one secondary-but-not-secondary entries. Conflicting one is 6 Nov. 2018 1140 ie in-basin with 1141:37 E
13:01:30 <ynpvisitor999> we need 17 for 500 recorded NG's in a year
13:06:14 <ynpvisitor58> Good job DG
13:24:42 <ynpvisitor999> I'm off for today. Have fun watching Bee
13:25:06 <LindaG🎅> Thanks, merry christmas!
13:25:37 <Betty> night DG
13:32:46 <Betty> OF
14:10:12 <ynpvisitor25> will it clear for Grand?
14:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't count on it.
14:16:49 <EVE> I'm thinking positive
14:17:06 <EVE> If BH wants to show, that would be nice too.
14:17:47 <LindaG🎅> It was really steaming not too long ago thé i
14:18:15 <LindaG🎅> *then it calmed
14:19:07 <EVE> I see blue sky.
14:19:40 <Betty> looks like Artemesia
14:20:20 <LindaG🎅> Clearing a little out there
14:21:14 <EVE> yeah. Now is only it would not be dark by Grand. Wondering what will happen after the 3 burst.
14:22:33 <EVE> Castle would be nice as sun sets too
14:22:57 <EVE> single NG again I see
14:23:45 <EVE> down basin steam seems closer than Artemisia to me
14:24:20 <Betty> F&M?
14:25:28 <Betty> Aurum?
14:25:48 <Betty> yep
14:25:54 <EVE> nice
14:25:55 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
14:26:20 <EVE> Nice of OF not to obscure it
14:26:49 <LindaG🎅> Geez I go away for 10 seconds...
14:27:09 <EVE> I've been there...
14:27:17 <Betty> bah
14:27:42 <LindaG🎅> I switched over to check email
14:27:57 <EVE> Hey Betty, Merry Christmas
14:28:03 <LindaG🎅> Lion is purring
14:28:25 <Betty> Merry Christmas :-)
14:28:25 <Kevin L™🌵> I think that is me snoring.
14:28:53 <EVE> no baking today Kevin?
14:30:27 <LindaG🎅> 😆
14:31:02 <LindaG🎅> EVE, its clearing for you
14:31:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I have been in the shop working on pens and a chair with a really bad attitude.
14:31:35 <EVE> I was just lamenting that I think the clouds will win, when the cam goes to dark. We may be in the MIDDLE time when Grand goes.
14:31:50 <EVE> you have a bad attitude Kevin, or the chair?
14:31:55 <LindaG🎅> Chair has bad attitude or you?
14:32:01 <EVE> ha ha
14:32:15 <Kevin L™🌵> We both do know. Needs tannerite.
14:32:18 <Betty> lol
14:33:15 <EVE> Blue sky in the basin for Christmas would be nice.
14:33:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Had a pen with a attitude problem too. Sitting on the lathe now with CA glue drying
14:33:39 <EVE> is the pen for Christmas? That is down to the wire
14:36:32 <Betty> looks like OT
14:37:19 <LindaG🎅> Neat
14:37:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Not for Christmas. One I am working on with my Son-in-Law for a friend. A bit different but it should look nice. Combining a couple of materials. Should look nice.
14:38:03 <Kevin L™🌵> OT. Don't want to hear OT anymore!!!!!
14:38:48 <Betty> what´s wrong with OT?
14:39:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Knights lost two games in two days in OT. :P
14:39:54 <Betty> :-}
14:45:59 <Betty> Daisy
14:57:34 <Betty> Castle
14:57:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish Bee would go before dark. I think Joe and I were the only ones to see it last Knight.
14:58:59 <Betty> yes, BH soon would be nice
14:59:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I was just shutting down the computer when Indy went.
14:59:40 <Betty> OF
14:59:44 <Betty> nice
15:00:47 <EVE> I just missed BH last night too
15:02:21 <EVE> a few folks out on static
15:02:33 <Kevin L™🌵> A pen I mailed has been out for delivery since 0819 this morning. Customer in in MDT.
15:03:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Last one I mailed her went through Pittsburgh!
15:04:07 <EVE> I hope she gets it
15:05:08 <Kevin L™🌵> At least this one is in the right town!
15:06:08 <Kevin L™🌵> This one went from Salt Lake to Provo to Santa Clara (St George area).
15:06:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Started in Vegas.
15:08:09 <EVE> Mine get crazy routes when they start with Fed Ex or UPS and end up with Smart Post.
15:08:46 <Kevin L™🌵> At least this one didn't get stuck in Phoenix for 3 days due to a sandstorm.
15:10:08 <EVE> wow, that would be nutty
15:10:51 <Kevin L™🌵> That happened to me about 3 years ago.
15:14:59 <EVE> Castle looks to be a major

15:23:01 <Betty> hope you get BH soon. Night all and Happy Christmas Eve
15:23:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Merry Christmas Betty.

15:25:50 <EVE> the middle time...
15:26:28 <EVE> Is that Grand?
15:26:51 <LindaG🎅> Might be
15:27:13 <EVE> not enough steam
15:28:44 <LindaG🎅> Bee is driving me nuts
15:30:08 <EVE> sorry Linda, chasing BH in the winter months is a tough one
15:30:48 <LindaG🎅> It steams, it doesn't steam, it steams.....
15:31:35 <EVE> it splashes, bubblers go, it goes without indy...
15:31:51 <EVE> the BH lament
15:32:35 <LindaG🎅> 😝
15:37:07 <LindaG🎅> Gotta eat dinner, so enjoy BH, cause you know it will go now.
15:39:41 <Kevin L™🌵> think we lost daylight
