05:27:26 <GO FUND ME> traffic will be spread out all weekend and thru tuesday
05:27:50 <GO FUND ME> how was big ears?
05:29:11 <GO FUND ME> No lion reports yesterday or last night?
05:29:58 <Kevin L> We are going there shortly. Pretty nasty traffic all the way from Vegas yesterday.
05:30:30 <Dave from B™> Only 1 day at Disney?
05:30:35 <GO FUND ME> ah, have fun and chill out
05:30:57 <Dave from B™> C'mon're supposed to be in line 40 minutes before Opening!
05:32:06 <Kevin L> One will be all we can take with a 5 year old and an 8 month old. One day more than I wanted to do.
05:34:01 <GO FUND ME> remember, its the second happiest place in the world
05:35:28 <Kevin L> I will be happy when I see the welcome to california sign in the rear view.
05:36:51 <LindaG> Kevin L, good luck and enjoy
05:38:51 <Dave from B™> Kevin, remember, don't look into the eye on Indiana Jones
05:39:02 <Kevin L> The oldest Granddaughter is pretty excited.
05:41:20 <LindaG> Daisy? Something is happening out there
05:44:02 <Dave from B™> Sadly, at least 2 of my kids, maybe 3, would pick Disneyland over YNP
05:44:38 <LindaG> Lion ie
05:47:33 <GO FUND ME> about time Lion showed up
05:48:01 <GO FUND ME> now we wonder when the initial happened
05:48:37 <LindaG> It was pretty strong, but I'm not certain what constitutes an intial
05:50:05 <GO FUND ME> 6 or 7 min duration is whats different and of course the long gap before it erupts
05:50:17 <Joe> Lion has been threatining to erupt for the past few hours, this is the inital
05:50:21 <GO FUND ME> looks like this one is still going so it might be the initial
05:50:50 <LindaG> It was already going when I noticed it.
05:50:56 <GO FUND ME> yeah, lots of splashing before it erupts too
05:52:08 <LindaG> Last initial i saw was similar. Very strong wide column
05:57:41 <GO FUND ME> some of the other eruptions in a series can look as strong, but dont last as long
05:57:58 <LindaG> Ok
05:58:27 <LindaG> Thx
06:02:58 <GO FUND ME> of
06:02:59 <Dave from B™> OF ie
06:40:59 <Dave from B™> Did Giant from yesterday ever get confirmed?
06:41:26 <ynpvisitor47> Wasn't it an in-basin report?
06:42:42 <Dave from B™> It was a road drive by
06:42:53 <Dave from B™> A ? at best
06:43:36 <Casey> Ahh. I never read the not. Just saw an "ie" report without the "wc"
06:43:39 <Casey> *note
06:46:57 <GO FUND ME> lc
06:47:58 <ynpvisitor47> Joe Riverside has an in basin time posted from you
06:48:33 <GO FUND ME> Joe moves fast like Santa
06:50:03 <Joe> It has been fixed :)
06:51:27 <GO FUND ME> cam having problems?
06:52:02 <Joe> yes
06:52:46 <GO FIX ME> sigh
06:53:10 <GO FIX ME> maybe CenturyLink will notice and fix it as its a workday for them
06:53:32 <Casey> Back up for me
06:53:46 <Joe> Stream has stopped dead, It did this three times last night for ~10 min each time
06:53:52 <Joe> Stream has stopped dead, It did this three times last night for ~10 min each time
06:55:35 <Joe> I have it back for now
06:55:50 <GO FUND ME> back here too

06:56:40 <Dave from B™> Lion
07:13:15 <BSK> I was going to say "good morning," but in light of the most recent chat posts... well, it's working at the moment *knocks on wood*

08:13:40 <Joe> Daisy

08:14:52 <LindaG>

08:16:29 <ynpvisitor91> Riverside ie ???
08:17:53 <Joe> es 1009
08:24:06 <Betty> morning guys
08:24:30 <Joe> Hi Betty
08:24:38 <LindaG> Good morning Betty
08:24:45 <Steph> Hi!
08:24:47 <Betty> hi Joe and Linda
08:24:48 <GO FUND ME> looks like Snow has been furloughed
08:25:02 <Betty> hi Steph and Graham
08:25:04 <GO FUND ME> good afternoon betty
08:25:48 <Joe> Yes, snow was used as a seat and footrest the other day.
08:26:17 <LindaG> Poor thing
08:26:33 <GO FUND ME> lc
08:27:44 <GO FUND ME> we should report the child abuse
08:28:08 <LindaG> Lake looks pretty nice right now
08:29:12 <Joe> bbl, have fun
08:29:33 <Betty> later Joe
08:54:50 <Betty> hope we will see Grand in the whiteout
08:59:13 <Betty> Lion
09:05:23 <Betty> OF
09:21:32 <GO FUND ME> the view is disimproving
09:22:18 <Betty> seems OF slimed the cam earlier
09:23:29 <Steph> See ya'll! Have a great day!
09:23:54 <Betty> same to you
09:42:20 <GO FUND ME> are we seeing NG boils? looked like one a minute ago
09:43:11 <Betty> no idea, did not have a look
09:58:15 <ynpvisitor91> Lion
09:59:10 <LindaG> GO FUND ME, about an hour ago I was wo dering the same thing. Seemed like NG was steaming
10:00:08 <LindaG> *Wondering
10:19:29 <ynpvisitor89> I wonder if the dome will stay clean on top of the Inn
10:20:03 <Dave from B™> That camera will be old technology by the time it gets turned on.
10:23:16 <Betty> guess we missed Grand
10:26:04 <GO FUND ME> the wind rarely blows towards the inn plus it will be higher so less spray would reach it
10:28:15 <ynpvisitor89> We need to GO FUND a couple of spared domes so the VC can change them out for cleaning
10:32:28 <GO FUND ME> i am still hoping the cam doesnt get setup there ... this view is much better
10:33:11 <BSK> It's already mounted... Just awaiting Internet connection cut-over
10:34:31 <GO FUND ME> I know, i have seen it there. still hoping it never happens
10:36:08 <GO FUND ME> i think the cam can catch all the down basin predictable geysers if its left pointing down there. won't see Geyser hill or OF tho
10:36:54 <GO FUND ME> i assume thatswhere VEC will want it pointed so they get predictions in the morning. OF can be picked up whenever it erupts
10:37:35 <GO FUND ME> will be tough for BH, Lion, and Aurum lovers overnight
10:37:35 <BSK> That's a pretty good crowd!
10:38:20 <Betty> OF
10:38:35 <Dave from B™> We need 2 cameras from the Inn
10:39:15 <GO FUND ME> of
10:39:33 <GO FUND ME> keep one here. you would need 3 to cover the same view as this one
10:41:20 <Dave from B™> I'm going to be anxious to see what the wide open OF view looks like and how much of GH we can see at the same time
10:42:00 <GO FUND ME> be ready for not much view ... i took some shots and only got Plume in view with a reasonable view of OF
10:54:44 <Joe> Betty, your Lion and Little Cub are exact start times.
10:55:37 <Betty> thx
10:55:56 <Betty> and thanks for finding Grand :-)
10:56:07 <Joe> Yw
11:09:12 <Joe> I was watching Riverside Sprinkler and Daisy and totally missed Grand the first time but on fast playback Grand stood out like a sore thumb :)
11:30:10 <ynpvisitor65> castle
11:43:40 <Joe> Betty, 1329:54 Castle exact start.
11:44:15 <Betty> :thumbsup:
11:45:35 <GO FUND ME> major too
12:12:13 <ynpvisitor999> was that Dep a few seconds ago?
12:12:38 <ynpvisitor999> OF
12:15:09 <GO FUND ME> eveningDG
12:15:13 <BSK> Oh, yuck
12:15:23 <GO FUND ME> DG's fault
12:15:30 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon all, evening Betty
12:16:15 <GO FUND ME> thanks for cleaning up NG data on GT - one left on 11/6
12:17:33 <ynpvisitor999> I know, not really sure what to do about it - as 1140 is ie, while 1141 is an electronic exact time.
12:17:55 <BSK> I wonder if we can get a concessionaire to clean the dome.
12:18:52 <GO FUND ME> i would just add your time as a comment
12:19:06 <GO FUND ME> i think ll the E times are a bit late
12:19:55 <GO FUND ME> we should get rid of the 1min interval
12:20:11 <ynpvisitor999> deleted 1141:37 E, data for NG should now be clean
12:20:24 <GO FUND ME> i was a Mara in-park report too, so it would be good
12:20:34 <GO FUND ME> thanks
12:21:18 <ynpvisitor999> we're 18 short of 500 NGs in a year :(
12:21:21 <Betty> evening DG
12:21:41 <GO FUND ME> 482 this year if we believe them all including the 4min interval
12:21:50 <GO FUND ME> lc
12:23:09 <GO FUND ME> good year for NG. I keep hoping it will have series again but it seems to do singles now and not very often
12:24:17 <ynpvisitor999> 4m interval is between two in-basin entries, one by Kyle and one by Micah (latter one alse observed by Moose)
12:39:23 <ynpvisitor999> apparantly Dome has a logger. So far it seems it only catches the initial
12:45:11 <GO FUND ME> still good to know when the initial happens
12:45:21 <GO FUND ME> saves you having to enter a lot of times :)
12:45:30 <ynpvisitor999> I wouldn't mind at all :D
12:55:17 <Dave from B™> Kevin waited 3 hours and 20 minutes in line for 1 ride
12:55:44 <Betty> ugh
12:59:21 <GO FUND ME> thats like waiting for Aurum, he should have been fine. wait hours for 1min of excitement
13:00:46 <ynpvisitor999> that hourglass emoji fits well now
13:00:59 <ynpvisitor999> 'lovely' white X
13:01:05 <ynpvisitor95> Cam down again?
13:01:09 <ynpvisitor999> for me it is
13:01:27 <Betty> yes, cam is down
13:01:56 <Betty> you can read it in "settings"
13:02:07 <Betty> bah
13:02:43 <GO FUND ME> reports are that the shutdown will last past 3 Jan when the new congress is seated
13:04:15 <Betty> any news if it really was Giant yesterday?
13:05:38 <GO FUND ME> no in park reports. Janet left and stopped to see SB steam phase
13:07:49 <ynpvisitor999> Giant yesterday sounds plausible, seen Giant's assumed shortening intervals over the last few weeks (excluding the 1d19h, though; wouldn't be surprised if it was Giant as well)
13:09:29 <ynpvisitor999> also, with that GHP a day earlier with a Mastiff surge to presumably 20 feet, I think it was then a case of 'not quite ready yet'
13:30:12 <GO FIX ME> back to my bad old nick
13:37:42 <Betty> Aurum on static?
13:38:36 <ynpvisitor999> can't see anything which looks like it on static
13:38:53 <Betty> it´s gone
13:42:56 <Betty> looks like Aurum now :-p
13:43:34 <Betty> OF
13:45:09 <ynpvisitor109> BAH HAMBUG
13:45:38 <Dave from B™> Must be Kevin
13:46:50 <ynpvisitor109> I wonder what’s going on lately
13:47:26 <Joe> That is what I get for taking a nap, I show we lost everything at 1448
13:47:51 <ynpvisitor109> Maybe it’ll come back
13:47:59 <ynpvisitor999> conspiracy theorists trying to DDoS the cam. They're actually somewhat successful in it, unfortunately
13:48:09 <ynpvisitor109> It’s not a holiday
13:48:39 <32> that is a sad thought DG
13:49:14 <32> now it will be the cams fault that I miss Grand. :)
13:49:23 <32> cam's
13:49:31 <ynpvisitor999> nah, blame Mary Greeley or whatever she's called
13:49:40 <32> I do wish we had cams, yet not now.
13:49:47 <Joe> The techs at Century Link need to wake up and reset everything, there are numerous reports of outages in Century links system
13:50:02 <32> I bet Joe, the weather has been cold and windy
13:50:22 <ynpvisitor109> Fortunately it’s not 5:00 yet, maybe they’ll reset before then
13:50:24 <32> Is it Century Link in the park? I thought it was Northwest Tel
13:50:39 <32> I like that thought 109
13:50:55 <32> Betty, any snow for the holidays in Germany?
13:51:06 <Betty> no
13:52:03 <32> well dry roads are nice.
13:52:47 <32> any verification of Giant, Dave from B?
13:54:13 <Joe> Century Link is the T1 provider.
13:56:34 <Dave from B™> 32, not that I know of. Many of us have been asking that same question today
14:13:11 <GO FIX ME> i dont have the x any ore, just the spinning circle
14:13:46 <Dave from B™> Maybe it's an X but it's spinning so fast that it looks like a circle?
14:14:00 <Betty> hahaha
14:14:05 <ynpvisitor999> :)
14:14:38 <32> Thanks Joe and Dave for the info
14:14:38 <Dave from B™> Let the record show that I have a stationary "X"
14:14:46 <Joe> Dave, Dave, Dave :)
14:14:51 <GO FIX ME> refreshed and now i getthe static X
14:15:18 <32> will someone text if the cam comes back up?
14:16:18 <Joe> I will
14:16:41 <32> thanks
14:17:43 <Dave from B™> Time for this old man to go home. Have a great evening everyone!
14:18:06 <Betty> bye Dave
14:18:32 <ynpvisitor999> bye Dave
14:19:34 <Dave from B™> Joe, Joe , Joe what did you trip on?
14:20:01 <Dave from B™> wb, Joe
14:20:27 <Joe> :) Dave you are not old :
14:21:43 <Joe> My enter key stuck!
14:35:51 <ynpvisitor999> Grand ie static from
14:35:55 <ynpvisitor999> frame*
14:50:48 <ynpvisitor34> it is interesting how we lose the streaming cam around December or January each year
14:52:32 <ynpvisitor999> I think it has to do with the massive amount of christmas and new year wishes that are sent around that time, which in return causes the network to struggle a bit...
15:03:58 <ynpvisitor112> Hopefully we can see it happen in the next 20 minutes on static
15:04:03 <ynpvisitor112> OF that is
15:07:51 <ynpvisitor999> hmm... looks like the Dome logger filled completely a month prior to its data being pulled :(
15:12:44 <ynpvisitor99> Of static
15:20:06 <ynpvisitor999> I'm off for today. Have fun watching that darn white X
15:20:40 <Betty> night DG. I´m out too
15:46:49 <ynpvisitor95> Century Link is out statewide
15:47:14 <ynpvisitor95> And many other states too. Much bigger problem than the cam.
15:47:39 <ynpvisitor95> Google it, I heard it made National News
15:47:56 <GO FIX ME> we saw the outage report this morning but the cam was still working then
15:48:20 <GO FIX ME> it was good until about 2h ago
15:55:02 <ynpvisitor95> Century link was in and out until then
15:55:26 <ynpvisitor95> Now out with everywhere else
