03:37:43 <ynpvisitor37> unusual geyser in the list today :)
03:41:28 <Joe> A New Zeland geyser... strange.
03:42:04 <CraigC> Pohutu
03:42:23 <ynpvisitor37> Demetri there and Mara too based on FB post
03:43:12 <Joe> Zealand*
03:58:10 <Joe> Grand
04:59:17 <STS - phone> Interesting to see Pohutu
05:04:59 <Art> Someone is in New Zeland?
05:07:24 <Joe> Demetri and Mara
05:22:39 <Joe> Daisy
05:27:39 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
05:28:35 <Dave from B™> First ever Pohutu entry
05:29:00 <Joe> Hello Dave, stare at lines time?
05:30:38 <CraigC> hey Dave, how's it going?
05:32:12 <Dave from B™> My eyes are still going buggy after staring at them all day yesterday
05:33:07 <Dave from B™> Hey, Craig. It's a good day. I put up all my vacation days on the calendar at work
05:33:12 <STS - laptop> Hoping SB will go this morning sometime
05:44:09 <CraigC> wow, look at that bank of steam being blown from behind the trees
05:46:06 <Dave from B™> from Castle or Grotto?
05:47:03 <CraigC> I'd guess from Grotto area, since wind is pushing southish
05:47:11 <STS - laptop> It could be Castle, but it's a little early
05:47:55 <Dave from B™> My first gut was Grotto
05:48:02 <Mike J> Back again. My computer seems to have the Monday morning blahs
05:48:54 <STS - laptop> Yeah, looking at it, Castle doesn't make sense.
05:49:40 <STS - laptop> We could always enter Grotto with a (?)
05:50:58 <Joe> something in the grotto area was erupting, but what?
05:52:24 <Joe> right now just normal early morning down basin steam
06:02:00 <LindaG> Good morning all
06:10:59 <Dave from B™> Good morning Kevin, Linda
06:11:20 <LindaG> Hi Dave
06:11:40 <Dave from B™> It's nice to know my SB prediction skills are the same this year as last year
06:12:39 <LindaG> It's just messing with you.😉
06:13:05 <CraigC> lol, past my 12-hour window 2 hours ago
06:13:11 <CraigC> passed
06:15:18 <Dave from B™> I sure hope it doesn't lenghten its interval too much
06:15:45 <Art> The interval has definitely been increasing since late September
06:16:03 <Art> Occasionally it will dip back down (12/25)
06:17:40 <Dave from B™> It's been a real gradual trend since the 3 long disturbance intervals
06:17:58 <Art> https://i.redd.it/sch6c4e9oea21.png
06:18:38 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Art. Still pretty consistent intervals
06:20:32 <Art> Besides the disturbance this thing has been really consistent all year
06:20:49 <Art> It's trends are pretty linear
06:30:48 <LindaG> Lake is pretty
06:37:21 <Art> So if trend continues, which it sure looks like at the moment, maybe 9d 22h to 10d 2h.
06:39:47 <LindaG> OF ie
06:41:20 <ynpvisitor11> Wow that was nice....
06:42:24 <LindaG> Always looks stunning in cold weather
06:44:58 <LindaG> Well we won't see the basin for a while
06:49:20 <ynpvisitor37> :( longest SB interval since the disturbance
06:51:35 <ynpvisitor11> Tis the season
06:52:00 <Art> "It does that"
06:52:38 <Art> Interval just seems to be increasing slowly since August
06:52:45 <Art> https://i.redd.it/sch6c4e9oea21.png
06:52:47 <Kevin L™🌵> I wouldn't come out in this weather eaither.
06:52:56 <ynpvisitor11> I think when the spring hits that it will jump back again
06:53:06 <ynpvisitor37> the biggest jump in "longest interval" has been about a day and a half ...hope it doesnt lengthen that window
06:54:11 <CraigC> I'm hoping/guessing the temps has an effect, and it will lessen towards March-May
06:54:16 <Dave from B™> The question I have is....will it take a disturbance to shorten the interval again? I know intervals get longer after a disturbance but then last year they settled into a shorter interval
06:54:36 <Dave from B™> after that
06:55:12 <ynpvisitor11> Well, there was a graph recently sent to the list serv showing that each active phase, (1960s and 1980s) had a spike in activity but did not in-fact reach its peak until the year after the phase began.
06:55:26 <ynpvisitor11> Indeed, there seems to always be a surge, slow down, and then the main active phase.
06:55:42 <ynpvisitor11> I personally think we have not actually seen the main part of this active phase.
06:55:59 <CraigC> main part?
06:56:26 <ynpvisitor11> Let me see if I can get that graph (Art, its the one I shared in messenger)
06:56:51 <Art> This one?
06:56:52 <Art> https://i.redd.it/v6z76j7v9f921.png
06:57:24 <Dave from B™> 11, I hope you're right. We shall see
06:57:29 <ynpvisitor11> The active phases in the 1960s and 1980s seemed to be split into three main phases: a buildup lasting the first third of the active phase (1-2yrs) and then the middle really active part (lasting about a third) and then a gradual tail off over the next couple years.
06:57:55 <ynpvisitor11> Based *purely on numerical statistics* it looks like we are still in the first third of that curve.
06:58:06 <ynpvisitor11> No, I will upload it, Art.
06:58:18 <Art> Thanks
07:01:17 <ynpvisitor11> https://imgur.com/a/01tJqDy
07:01:18 <ynpvisitor11> This one
07:01:46 <CraigC> Castle?
07:01:51 <Art> Ahhh yes.. the number of eruptions in a 12 month period
07:01:55 <ynpvisitor11> Note that is essentially an averaged, smoothed, curve showing the rate of eruptions during an active phase.
07:02:08 <ynpvisitor11> So, a spike may not exactly mean regularity, just increased averaged frequency
07:02:38 <ynpvisitor11> When you standardize the curves you find the shapes of the 60s and 80s curve are almost identical.
07:02:47 <ynpvisitor11> I think we are in for a very nice active phase.
07:02:58 <ynpvisitor11> Or - it could die and never erupt again. It is a geyser
07:03:22 <Dave from B™> Well if it stops now....you will get the blame:)
07:03:46 <ynpvisitor11> Eh, my days in the park are far and few between.
07:03:54 <ynpvisitor11> And I am used to being blamed for stuff ;)
07:04:19 <Dave from B™> But you have seen Sb and you will be back for more!
07:04:38 <ynpvisitor11> Well, I *have* seen it. Don't know if I will make it back again.
07:04:58 <ynpvisitor11> My ability to go is limited - unless its regular and under 8 days I dont know if I can make it.
07:05:05 <ynpvisitor11> (Wow, I just said that about Steamboat.)
07:05:59 <Dave from B™> Yeah, there are a lot of statements made about SB that would have seemed strange only a year ago
07:07:45 <Ryan> Weird, my chat thing started off by having my name - then changed back to 11.
07:09:49 <Dave from B™> I knew it was you:)
07:10:16 <Art> Does anyone know if the 1960 and 1980 active periods were fully monitored in winter months?
07:10:33 <Kevin L™🌵> How do we know it is really you Dave?
07:10:50 <Dave from B™> not again please
07:11:13 <Ryan> Art, they werent.
07:11:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think anything was fully monitored it the 60's and 80's Art
07:11:28 <Art> Thanks
07:11:32 <Dave from B™> When did seismo start at Norris Museum?
07:11:38 <Ryan> See recent emails - there are two, maybe three, eruptions that Rick H. missed but inferred their occurance.
07:12:00 <Ryan> For historical statistics I can't in good faith put those in there.
07:12:16 <Ryan> We have no proof other than a couple layers of ice in the snow pack.
07:12:33 <CraigC> are you Ryan the photographer and spelunker?
07:12:39 <Ryan> I am.
07:12:56 <Kevin L™🌵> And rocket scientist.
07:13:01 <CraigC> well, I hope you work it out to get back in the park, your pics are amazing
07:13:26 <Ryan> Kevin, that is a very poltie way of saying "pyromaniac" ;)
07:13:38 <Ryan> Thanks, Craig! It sure is lots of fun.
07:14:11 <Kevin L™🌵> :) Been there, done that, have ashes of T shirt...
07:14:40 <Ryan> The only difference between a redneck playing with fire and me is that I write down what happens.
07:15:47 <Ryan> (As someone from rural Appalachia I approve the redneck comment. :) )
07:19:05 <Joe> Riverside
07:23:40 <Dave from B™> I hope we don't get to 10 days on SB
07:24:01 <CraigC> Joe, did you see castle area around 9:00?
07:24:52 <Joe> Yes no Castle yet
07:25:03 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:26:08 <ynpvisitor16> I think it would be more interesting to have an interval change on SB but that might not be a popular idea :P
07:27:42 <Dave from B™> Sounds like something Graham would say
07:28:40 <ynpvisitor16> all we can do is ride it out
07:29:25 <Dave from B™> Is there SB doom and gloom on FB yet today?
07:30:10 <CraigC> no, Dave
07:43:00 <Joe> morning Eric
07:47:50 <Joe> Castle
07:48:07 <Eric> Morning Joe
07:48:43 <Eric> hopefully this all clears up for our noon bh :-D
07:49:09 <Joe> Yes, too much fog
07:50:55 <Eric> I see we are in the SB window too...maybe get a dual BH SB
07:52:16 <Joe> Dave would like that, better than watching lines
07:52:54 <Eric> Don't let dave fool you, he loves watching those lines!
07:53:10 <Joe> :)
07:54:01 <Dave from B™> Not quite as much fun as SB minors or babbling brooks
07:55:16 <CraigC> hey Eric, how's it going
07:56:07 <Eric> Hi Craig, it's going ok for a Monday morning. How about you?
07:56:56 <CraigC> nice sunny weather here... I don't want to end up sitting here the whole day watching YNM and then regret it later
07:58:39 <ynpvisitor5> It’ll happen when it happens. If it happens
07:59:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Or your money back!
07:59:10 <CraigC> yeah, whether I am watching the monitor or not
07:59:23 <ynpvisitor5> Will it make any difference if you find out hours later?
07:59:40 <CraigC> 5, nope, that is what I have to convince myself
07:59:40 <Dave from B™> 5, we have to know as it happens!
08:00:12 <ynpvisitor5> Someone could send a text alert
08:00:41 <Eric> We are gazers...we want the start :-P
08:01:30 <Eric> At least for me that is true...I don't feel as satisfied coming down for a Giant if I missed the hot period.
08:01:34 <CraigC> and we want to cheer at our screens together LOL
08:02:06 <ynpvisitor5> This is not that Eric
08:02:27 <Eric> We don't have an applause icon at the bottom!
08:02:37 <Eric> That needs to be fixed!
08:02:44 <ynpvisitor5> Seeing a line move on the seismo is not like being there
08:02:44 <Eric> plus a nice steamboat :-D
08:03:16 <CraigC> I haven't seen SB erupt live yet, is it better than the YNM lines?
08:03:22 <Eric> But the mental state of catching the start for me is synonymous. Might not be true for all.
08:03:31 <Eric> About the same Craig
08:03:36 <Ryan> I feel like a text alert for SB this time around may be warranted
08:03:59 <ynpvisitor5> Synonymous? Not possible.
08:04:00 <Joe> Castle is a major
08:04:17 <Eric> Thx Joe
08:04:36 <ynpvisitor5> I hope it happens for y’all!
08:05:03 <Dave from B™> I agree, Eric. I have to see the lead up to an eruption for it to count (I hope a certain Norris gazer isn't reading this:))
08:05:47 <Eric> Sometimes the lines can be better Craig, you don't get wet, too hot, too cold, sunburned.....
08:05:49 <CraigC> Has anyone seen Peaceful Warrior? There is a scene where they climb up the mountain, and Nick Nolte has got this kid all excited about something he said he will see....
08:07:09 <Eric> I still count those eruptions...but to me, the build up and the process that gets me there is good, if not better than an eruption sometimes.
08:07:11 <CraigC> then there ends being nothing out of the narmal, and the kid gets all upset, and Nolte points out that the antipication excitement is real, and having that is what matters
08:07:40 <Eric> Exactly Craig!
08:08:13 <CraigC> that scene was an epiphany fo rme
08:08:23 <Dave from B™> Yep. I love GHP's
08:09:03 <Dave from B™> I get excited when Bijou stops erupting.
08:09:18 <Art> Maybe there should be like a separate text group to subscribe to for "Major Geysers"
08:10:02 <Joe> Daisy
08:10:02 <Art> Or feature enhancement to the GeyserTimes App to "Subscribe" to certain geysers
08:10:26 <Art> So you can get like a push notification when someone logs Steamboat or Giant, or BHI
08:11:58 <Eric> I kinda feel like if you are into enough to get texts about a daily geyser like BH, you probably don't mind a few extras about SB or Giant.
08:12:48 <Art> I'm de-sensitives to the BH texts
08:12:50 <Ryan> I wish GHP texts could be sent from the basin
08:13:00 <Art> So when they come in I often miss the "GIANT"
08:13:03 <Eric> :thumbsup:
08:13:04 <Ryan> Would be nice to have a heads up to turn the camera.
08:13:06 <Art> Like oh it wasn't BH
08:13:26 <Eric> ahhh, I see....so it's not the extra txts, it's you want something special for Giant/SB
08:13:42 <CraigC> This SB deal feels different to me, like more about the duration of the interval trend, and excited and nervous about which way it goes, and can't wait for the next one each time
08:14:36 <Dave from B™> I agree Craig. We all want it to continue and be "predictable"
08:14:53 <Ryan> Eric - yeah. I have the BH one saved in my contact as Beehive. But, on the other hand its easy enough to just look. A quick glance will tell you if its BH or something else
08:15:52 <Joe> Daisy now
08:16:11 <Art> On the flip side I'm sure there will be people who are like why are you texting me about SB, yeah it erupted in the middle of the winter when no one can get there. It does that..
08:17:12 <Art> Point of the BH text I thought was so that folks can jump on webcam or run down basin to make it
08:17:29 <Ryan> I am sure, but I lean to Eric there. If you can stand daily texts about BH, or the cam being up or down, then why not once a week about SB or Giant?
08:18:04 <Ryan> SB, I can see, because we cant see it. We can see Giant on the cam and a warning about a hot period would not be bad
08:18:43 <Dave from B™> Early on there were people who complained about multiple texts becuase they didn't have an unlimited plan. Is that still a valid concern today?
08:19:07 <Joe> Keep an eye on indy/BH I have to leave for now :(
08:19:21 <Art> Not as much but there are still some lower cost plans that limit out texts
08:19:30 <Eric> I would say that SB is exceptional and a txt about it isn't a bad thing.
08:20:07 <CraigC> This might sound weird, but even though we missed eruptions at SB, we had the excitement of the minors and "possibilities", and since that, I have felt similar excitement simply seeing others posts and pictures afterwards of catching the eruptions, and even from YNM eruptions. Does that make sense?
08:20:14 <Eric> I assume if you are getting daily BH txt, you probably don't fall into that issue Art, but that could be a bad assumption I guess.
08:20:41 <Eric> Bye Joe
08:21:05 <Art> Still think cool option would be a push notification from the GeyserTimes app to the Geysers you "Subscribe to"
08:21:09 <Eric> Elk on mammoth cam
08:21:24 <Art> Put it in the "backlog" :p
08:21:31 <Eric> I like the idea Art
08:21:53 <Eric> Especially if you are in basin or travelling toward that geyser
08:22:13 <Eric> sometimes txt or push notifications can reach you when email cannot
08:22:39 <Dave from B™> Good idea Art....can I subscribe to "Waves on Grand"?
08:22:51 <CraigC> where do you get burner phones for UGB reception?
08:23:10 <Eric> Does anyone have a Jim recording of that Dave?
08:23:15 <Art> Radios are still the best in basin tool
08:23:41 <Art> CraigC, Walmart, anywhere selling prepaid
08:24:06 <Eric> I just bought a cheap target verizon prepaid phone Craig
08:24:22 <Dave from B™> Eric, I would think at least 1 clip of Jim S's call is on one of Will's annual geyser tributes
08:24:28 <CraigC> Art, and which ones work? My family plan that piggybacks off Verizon doesnt get good signal there, I always have to update GT before I leave the hotel outside in WY
08:24:33 <Eric> I think it was less than $50 and I pay like $40 to activate it for the month
08:24:34 <Ryan> Biggest issue I see arising: social conflicts from people not getting alerts they thing they are guaranteed by people in the basin who may not be able or willing to send them
08:24:48 <ynpvisitor7> Sometimes there are 2 texts for BH, sometimes they are wrong even. I don’t think people who signed up mind if a SB text goes out! Almost all text plans are unlimited
08:25:49 <ynpvisitor7> We received SB texts before, and Giant ones.
08:26:02 <Eric> OF
08:26:06 <Eric> 1025
08:26:32 <Art> I'm sure SB texts would help folks in the park in the summer, where data doesn't always work but cellular data does
08:26:42 <STS - laptop> Got it Eric
08:26:47 <Eric> Elk herd on mammoth cam now
08:27:07 <Ryan> Off to class - later yall
08:27:27 <Eric> STS, type /quit and then /connect STS - laptop
08:27:40 <STS - laptop> :thumbsup:
08:28:01 <Eric> Now /connect STS - laptop
08:28:06 <Art> CraigC, Verizon works best in the park
08:28:11 <STS - laptop> Neat
08:28:12 <Eric> Their ya go :-D
08:28:17 <STS - laptop> Thanks Eric :D
08:28:30 <Art> But you're seeing issues with VZ?
08:28:37 <STS - laptop> I'm not especially tech savvy
08:29:07 <Eric> Verizon is as good as it gets in the park Craig...but you have to make sure your phone has the right radio frequencies for verizon
08:29:21 <CraigC> Maybe because it is secondary, I don't know. I can get texts in some spots, but I can't refresh GT in UGB
08:30:07 <STS - laptop> Every time I refresh YNM I keep hoping to see something UGH
08:30:08 <Eric> They might block secondary carriers from their YNP antennas
08:30:21 <Dave from B™> Verizon struggles between 900 and 2100 during summer at OF
08:30:23 <CraigC> maybe so
08:30:40 <Art> CraigC, is it just a Verizon Family Plan
08:30:50 <Eric> or exactly what Dave said....nobody gets GT very well during summer daytime hours
08:30:53 <CraigC> Art, no, walmart family plan
08:31:05 <Art> or is it a MVNO (Like Cricket or Straightalk)
08:31:17 <Eric> I thought walmart family plan was through tmobile
08:31:21 <BSK> During those hours of data network congestion, texts usually go through. But loading data from apps & websites can be slow and require re-tries.
08:31:35 <Eric> :thumbsup:
08:31:49 <Dave from B™> Yep and that is why I like the SB text idea
08:31:53 <Art> Tower upgrades on Washburn should help when complete
08:32:01 <BSK> So... SMS alerts rather than push notifications would be more useful, in my opinion.
08:32:03 <Art> Eric, hadn't though about the various LTE/CDME bands being an issue
08:32:14 <CraigC> at the store thay told me it was through verizon. I had t-mobile for work phone, and my walmart phone had better reception
08:32:19 <Art> Most likely it's what you suggest with them not having priority on the tower if it's an MVNO
08:32:25 <Eric> Yes, Tmobile is notorious for dropping and switching bands often
08:32:31 <Eric> Not sure about Verizon
08:33:00 <Art> We've got Verizon and an ATT Prepaid and the ATT Prepaid might not work for a week and then one day it just lights up
08:34:52 <Art> Here's a good comparison chart of all the pre-paid plans
08:34:53 <Art> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TjeuoGCWvnvMZIfqI5V5P9jNkrEnU44jND8u_VVc9IM/edit?usp=sharing
08:35:37 <Art> It's color coded based on carrier
08:35:41 <Art> Red = Verizon
08:36:21 <Eric> I didn't realize xfinity mobile used verizon
08:36:40 <Art> Looks like Straightalk uses all 4 telcos
08:38:15 <Eric> Have you ever tried red pocket Art?
08:38:28 <Eric> A little cheaper and more data then the normal verizon prepaid
08:44:56 <CraigC> everything I see looks like my walmart plan is through T-mobile... dang
08:46:15 <Eric> Yes, cell phone sales people will tell you anything to get you to pay them and walk out the door
08:48:12 <CraigC> :(
08:48:32 <Dave from B™> Craig, my keyboard company cells prepaid cell phones!
08:48:53 <CraigC> I'm gonna head up the canyon, there are eagles migrating through, less than an hour away... bbl folks
08:49:35 <Dave from B™> Have fun, Craig. Thanks for being our SB sacrifice
08:49:55 <Dave from B™> Should we hold the celebration until you get back?
08:50:06 <Joe> Last year I took Erics advice and went to my local verizon store got a mot g4play on sale $35, $40 prepaid plan $77 and change out the door. Worked great in Yellowstone
08:50:29 <CraigC> hahahaha, I'll leave my name in here still to be able to check back if it erupts
08:51:57 <Eric> Glad that worked for you Joe
08:52:08 <Eric> Enjoy the eagles Craig
08:58:57 <Art> @Eric, Haven't tried that one yet
08:59:06 <Art> Verizon does have a new "secret" MVNO call Visible
08:59:10 <Art> It was invite only for a while
09:00:04 <Art> https://www.visible.com/sign-up
09:03:24 <Eric> looks like limited speed on visible: 5 Mbps (fast) & 480p resolution (crisp)
09:03:44 <Eric> But unlimited, limited :-D
09:05:55 <Eric> You could stream this page all day, everyday on your phone.
09:15:55 <Dave from B™> 5 "noontime" Bh's in a row
09:16:57 <LindaG> Going for 6!
09:17:41 <LindaG> Looks like bubblers are active e on the static
09:19:02 <Eric> :sb:
09:19:15 <Eric> Anyone else see a steamboat icon?
09:19:35 <Eric> If you refresh it's after the indy icon now
09:19:59 <Art> Yup
09:21:04 <LindaG> Is that depression making all that steam out there?
09:21:07 <Eric> Now I just need some clapping icon
09:21:15 <Eric> Looks like it linda
09:21:19 <Eric> Thanks Art
09:24:21 <LindaG> I see a steamboat icon
09:26:35 <Ben VL> nice
09:27:30 <Ben VL> you could also do a mario mega mushroom for Giant maybe...
09:30:29 <Eric> Haha...I like the idea Ben :-D
09:33:03 <ynpvisitor37> or the jolly green giant
09:35:21 <ynpvisitor100> Speaking of icons... What is the 2nd one (between smile and bee?) I get the rest.
09:35:50 <LindaG> I think OF
09:36:07 <LindaG> but then maybe not lol
09:36:30 <ynpvisitor16> it's always looked like a hobo with a backpack to me but I think it's supposed to be GT
09:37:22 <Eric> It's a geyser erupting....the GT favorite icon
09:37:40 <ynpvisitor100> I'm not sure what it actually is supposed to be - looks vaguely like a telescope
09:37:40 <Eric> Well, their old icon
09:37:47 <Ben VL> I think it's the geyser logo in the banner on the top of GT
09:38:02 <Ben VL> ^
09:38:08 <Eric> hence the gt as it's shortcut
09:38:30 <Eric> if you put your mouse over it, you can see it says gt
09:38:47 <LindaG> Bubblers still bubbling
09:38:59 <ynpvisitor16> what is the BHI one?
09:39:12 <LindaG> Eruption is predicted for 12:03 today for beehive
09:39:21 <ynpvisitor100> That is not how it displays on my tablet. It looks kind of like a telescope
09:39:56 <LindaG> If you enlarge it looks more like geyser
09:39:58 <Eric> That is indian jones aka "Indy"
09:40:02 <Eric> indiana
09:40:43 <Eric> if people have better 16x16 icons, send them my way :-D
09:40:53 <LindaG> Not that beehive cares
09:41:20 <Eric> It's really hard when you only have 256 dots!
09:42:20 <ynpvisitor100> I like the icons - they are all crystal clear (except the 2nd.) Thank you. It makes sense now.
09:42:50 <Eric> Yes, I just grabbed that second one from GT as it was their icon at the time...I could now replace it with their most recent icon
09:48:01 <Eric> :gt: This should update to the latest GT icon at some point
09:48:16 <Eric> It seems to still be cached in my browser as the old one
09:58:54 <ynpvisitor69> Grand
09:59:01 <LindaG> Grand
10:01:48 <Eric> there we go, now I see the most recent GT icon as the second one.
10:01:50 <ynpvisitor69> Old Faithful
10:02:43 <Eric> a lot of steam near BH too
10:02:52 <Eric> But I don't see it onn static
10:03:20 <LindaG> Yes been watching but no indy yet
10:03:55 <LindaG> It getting there
10:04:39 <LindaG> Dean OF
10:04:51 <LindaG> *darn
10:05:20 <LindaG> Inthink inday maybe very woon
10:05:33 <LindaG> I think indy
10:05:44 <Dave from B™> That's even bad for my keyboard
10:05:57 <Eric> I thought you were speaking Elmer Fudd there :-D
10:06:52 <LindaG> A lot of steam on static
10:07:00 <Eric> 8m into Grand
10:07:14 <Eric> ohh, that looks indy linke
10:07:15 <Eric> like
10:07:36 <LindaG> Indy
10:07:48 <LindaG> .
10:07:48 <LindaG> .
10:08:47 <Eric> You mean :bhi: :-D
10:09:04 <Dave from B™> I don't think it is indy
10:09:26 <Kitt> I do
10:09:26 <LindaG> Oh no
10:09:47 <Dave from B™> Yeah...I couldn't see BH cone. That's what was confusing me
10:09:49 <Eric> Shows on static
10:10:00 <Kitt> Beehive
10:10:02 <Eric> BH
10:10:09 <Eric> :bee::bee::bee::bee::bee:
10:10:16 <Eric> Good call Linda
10:10:18 <LindaG> Looks strong now
10:10:22 <Dave from B™> That's more than indy
10:10:35 <sparekitty> major delay for me
10:10:44 <LindaG> Bingo BH
10:10:52 <Eric> Static is awesome
10:10:58 <ynpvisitor23> just in time
10:11:24 <ynpvisitor23> BH has been so regular
10:11:41 <ynpvisitor100> At least a few folks stuck around
10:12:05 <Eric> Yep, it helps that it's sitting on a 24h cycle at noon!
10:12:15 <LindaG> Static isnawewome
10:12:24 <LindaG> Awesome
10:12:31 <Eric> Yes, the initial eruption on static was really impressive
10:16:07 <LindaG> Nice one!
10:16:35 <ynpvisitor23> they've all been nice lately, we've had a lucky streak
10:18:51 <LindaG> Sure have
10:19:42 <ynpvisitor100> Noon, clear skies, and minimal fog = perfect viewing! Good job Bee!
10:20:16 <ynpvisitor23> now Grand's turn
10:20:48 <Dave from B™> Grand's turn for what?
10:21:11 <ynpvisitor100> No one's posted Grand or of
10:21:23 <ynpvisitor23> bummer, so I missed Grand
10:21:26 <ynpvisitor23> oh well
10:21:33 <ynpvisitor23> yeah, nothing on GT
10:22:04 <ynpvisitor23> slackers
10:22:15 <ynpvisitor100> They were back to back
10:23:03 <Eric> Feel free to pick up the slack!
10:23:13 <Dave from B™> You are all welcome to enter times you see here
10:23:26 <LindaG> Gotta do something else, see ya later
10:24:46 <ynpvisitor100> I've got to run too. Have a great rest of the day!
10:30:41 <ynpvisitor37> BH will stay at noon this week and then change to nights for Graham
10:32:53 <ynpvisitor37> you could put bee at 1209 since Kitt had it at 12:10:00 chat comment
10:38:37 <Dave from B™> So, was that a short indy or just really hidden?
10:38:52 <Eric> short indy
10:39:10 <Eric> not hidden at all, the current static image shows indy nicely
10:40:01 <Eric> The angle helps separate it from the OF runoff
10:40:18 <Dave from B™> There won't be any confusion from the Inn
10:41:13 <Eric> Nope...but only if we are pointing towards indy
10:41:40 <Eric> This would be a horrible situation if they had switched cams and we had no camops!
10:41:55 <Eric> We would only be seeing OF :-(
10:44:12 <CraigC> I guess I wasn't gone long enough, no SB yet.... sorry
10:44:35 <Eric> You get to see Eagles?
10:44:47 <CraigC> yeah, 20 or so
10:45:06 <Dave from B™> Eric, that is true. I'm hoping Law gets passed were shutdowns are permanently eliminated
10:45:10 <CraigC> going to go thru pics now see if any are worth editing
10:45:13 <Dave from B™> where*
10:45:45 <Dave from B™> It's not fair to penalize gov't workers for something they have no control over
10:45:54 <Eric> I would like to have the president, leader of house and senate in shackles until resolved :-D
10:46:09 <Dave from B™> At your house?
10:46:23 <Eric> Sure...I have a room we could use :-P
10:47:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Lock them in the capitol building and feed them nothing but Taco bell bean burritos until they hammer it out.
10:49:58 <LindaG> So there was 44 seconds between kitt weeing beehive and me. Making calling things hard. Eric you were seeing more than me on indy. I keep forgetting about my delay.
10:50:18 <LindaG> **seeing lol
10:50:47 <CraigC> never wee on the beehive... bad consequences
10:51:04 <Dave from B™> Linda, I'm gonna have to write you a ticket
10:51:42 <LindaG> I cant type on this tablet
10:52:10 <Eric> I just would have left it 1210, but I really don't think it matters muuuch
10:53:14 <LindaG> That's Joe's entry
10:54:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Now Aurum is a different story Craig...
10:57:49 <LindaG> Took screenpri t of aurum at 1:27 eruption? http://imgur.com/gallery/usDwi0C
10:59:50 <Kevin L™🌵> That is hard to tell. Lot of steam but not sure if it is drifting in.
11:00:39 <LindaG> Ok thanks for looking
11:02:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I tried zooming it but it was still too hard.
11:04:22 <Joe> If you are talking about 1127 I saw steam at Aurum area bot nothing more
11:04:27 <LindaG> Daisy
11:05:55 <LindaG> The aurum screen print above at 1:27
11:06:14 <LindaG> Well I guess it's the same thing
11:06:36 <Joe> I saw that and assumed 1127mt
11:06:44 <LindaG> Thx
11:21:35 <Dave from B™> No other geyser reports from New Zealand?:)
11:22:20 <CraigC> I only made it up the canyon, wasn't quite to NZ
11:22:25 <Joe> slackers:)
11:23:25 <CraigC> saw this one, though: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10158997982054572&set=a.74722409571&type=3&theater
11:23:27 <Dave from B™> 20 eagles....sounds fun
11:23:36 <Joe> nice column from Aurum
11:24:12 <Dave from B™> I remember Bald eagles at Lake McDonald in Glacier in early 80's. there were hundreds there for kokanee salmon
11:24:51 <Dave from B™> in October
11:28:14 <ynpvisitor37> were you stealing their fish Dave?
11:30:29 <Dave from B™> no. I saw them 2 Octobers in a row then salmon dropped off and they disappeared after that
11:30:49 <Dave from B™> It was quite a sight. White heads in the trees everywhere you looked
11:33:22 <CraigC> Dave, my aunt and uncle that lived in MT used to go up that way, and told us about watching them swoop down and grab the fish from the lake, sounded amazing
11:34:49 <Dave from B™> Yep...it was a real treat. We actually watched them about a quarter mile downstream from the lake. We stood on a bridge and watched them dive into the creek
11:35:19 <Joe> Lion
11:38:38 <Dave from B™> I was only 19/20 at the time. I didn't realize it was a big deal
11:41:40 <Joe> OF
11:45:10 <Dave from B™> So, if we satre at the seismo long enough, we will start seeing things hidden in the lines?
11:45:50 <Joe> Yep, I see dancing bears
11:46:54 <CraigC> if you Sartre at the seismo, you will see everything and nothing
11:51:29 <ynpvisitor16> :thumbsup:
11:54:13 <Dave from B™> Hey, if you're gonna make fun of me; spell you mispelling correct!:D
11:54:21 <Dave from B™> your*
11:54:30 <CraigC> :)
11:54:53 <Dave from B™> I use to like seismographs
12:09:01 <Dave from B™> ''''''''''
12:10:28 <ynpvisitor37> ~~~~~~~~
12:11:18 <Kevin L™🌵> 🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓
12:12:03 <Dave from B™> :sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb:
12:13:01 <Kevin L™🌵> You mean 🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬🐬?
12:13:10 <ynpvisitor37> is that a prediction Dave? 3 min to the next slice
12:13:27 <Dave from B™> haha
12:16:11 <ynpvisitor37> nope
12:26:15 <ynpvisitor37> nope
12:36:09 <ynpvisitor37> nope
12:40:52 <ynpvisitor81> 41, that temperature gauge needs a REAL FEEL next to it perhaps. No way it is 41
12:44:30 <Dave from B™> My weather app ahows 28F for OF...feels like 28F
12:44:41 <Eric> might be getting hit with the sun
12:44:58 <Eric> Not sure exactly how the guage is setup
12:46:03 <ynpvisitor37> nope
12:46:58 <Dave from B™> 37, you will most likely wears those keys out before SB erupts
12:47:22 <Dave from B™> wear*
12:48:18 <ynpvisitor37> sill waiting to say yep
12:48:25 <Eric> I wouldn't be surprised to see SB go in the next couple hours
12:49:18 <ynpvisitor37> just over an hour before we get to 10 days
12:52:38 <ynpvisitor81> you guys are hysterical, I hope it goes for you.
12:53:35 <Eric> I just hope it goes :-P
12:56:06 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:04:31 <BSK> Lion ie
13:05:58 <Kevin L™🌵> ?????
13:06:17 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:06:37 <BSK> hmmm... and I lagged? will refresh
13:06:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Who is moving it?
13:07:11 <BSK> Yeah!
13:07:34 <Dave from B™> Shutdown is over?
13:07:50 <CraigC> whoa
13:08:05 <ynpvisitor37> i didnt know it could move
13:08:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Not supposed to have controls until at least a day after shutdown is over.
13:08:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be le.
13:09:04 <Eric> I guess someone decided to grab control.
13:09:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a hacker
13:09:32 <KittyM1> Wow, panning!
13:09:42 <BSK> 24 hours after shutdown AND camops receive notice.
13:10:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I just hope the reset it back to wide
13:10:18 <Dave from B™> This is one thing I shouldn't be blamed for
13:10:41 <Eric> Someone back from vacation and didn't get the memo maybe?
13:11:06 <CraigC> doesnt seem like someone that is comfortable with the controls
13:12:37 <Joe> It is not me
13:12:54 <Eric> hackers!
13:12:57 <Joe> They missed old faithful
13:13:21 <Dave from B™> Someone angered by the long shutdown has snapped
13:14:22 <Eric> wish they would have snapped during BH earlier and given us some zoom :-P
13:15:28 <Joe> I hope they dont leave it there, we will miss Daisy and Riverside
13:16:02 <Dave from B™> I'm assuming CC will not be happy
13:16:11 <BSK> and Castle & Grand & Giant
13:16:30 <Dave from B™> On the other hand, there might be a volunteer position available
13:16:52 <ynpvisitor37> Dome is in view, must be Betty or Graham
13:17:24 <Kevin L™🌵> They way it was moving we would have missed BH. Right now if it doesn't get reset we will miss Grand, Daisy, Castle, etc
13:17:36 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:18:59 <Joe> I sent a message to CC
13:19:30 <BSK> I emailed the group, too.
13:20:13 <BSK> Tami & David are furloughed and won't see email, but...
13:22:01 <Kevin L™🌵> LE does have the ability to move the cam if they are looking for something.
13:22:21 <ynpvisitor65> It is back.
13:22:42 <Dave from B™> Somebody earlier did say Elmer Fudd was around
13:24:14 <Dave from B™> Hi CC
13:24:19 <Joe> Hi CC
13:24:24 <ynpvisitorCC> I am thinking it must have been law inforcement that moved the cam]
13:24:32 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi everyone.
13:24:55 <BSK> Hi CC - there was concern it could be a hacker. Hope it WAS LE.
13:25:06 <ynpvisitorCC> Thanks Kevin for moving it back
13:25:45 <Dave from B™> Howdy Kent
13:25:46 <CraigC> when the camera is being operated, is the chat screen showing, or is that optional?
13:26:04 <Dave from B™> It's a different program
13:26:10 <ynpvisitorCC> I will contact Le andsee if it was them. If it was a hacker I can't do anything about it until park opens
13:26:15 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:26:29 <Kent> Nothing like a little afternoon excitement
13:27:49 <CraigC> is excitement better than delight?
13:28:09 <ynpvisitor66> Sixes
13:28:23 <Dave from B™> Box cars
13:28:35 <CraigC> yeah, I'd rather be watching the seismo than doing THAT
13:28:39 <Kevin L™🌵> When camops are on Craig it will move on this page.
13:29:36 <Dave from B™> Time to go get some new spectacles. Old eyes need more help. Have a great evening everyone!
13:29:43 <ynpvisitorCC> SenT a message to LE. Waiting for their response
13:30:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight Dave. Better to watch for falling baseballs.
13:30:34 <CraigC> cya Dave, SB will wave to you after you're out the door
13:30:38 <Eric> Night Dave
13:30:45 <ynpvisitorCC> Wondering if it was Century testing thenewcam?
13:31:01 <Dave from B™> Yeah...I'm going to take a 90 minute break from staring at lines
13:31:26 <Kevin L™🌵> I would not think Centrylink would have access to the codes.
13:31:30 <BSK> It was this cam.
13:32:54 <Kevin L™🌵> It was moving everywhere like someone who didn't know how to use it. No preset appeared to be used. It should show up when Dave posts the day stream later tonight.
13:33:21 <Kevin L™🌵> And it did it during OF
13:33:41 <ynpvisitorCC> Interesting
13:33:43 <BSK> In fact, we were looking at the ground below the camera during OF.
13:33:45 <Kent> That's the way I normally drive :)
13:34:01 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
13:34:13 <Kevin L™🌵> That is how I walk.
13:34:46 <ynpvisitorCC> I sent an email....maybe a phone message would be better.
13:34:48 <Kent> Too close to the truth for me anymore also
13:35:32 <Kent> I hope we don't lose the image cuz of it
13:35:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I was at the museum looking at their new engines and tripped over a rail. Have two black and blue knees now. :P
13:36:23 <Joe> Ouch!!
13:36:31 <Kent> Nails in the boardwalks have started grabbing em
13:36:38 <Kent> me
13:36:55 <CraigC> ouch
13:37:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I have had a few issues like that too.
13:37:36 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:39:24 <Kevin L™🌵> You get any of that snow CC?
13:40:24 <Joe1> this is how I get around https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQvYz-x1z0R_hU-e-VH8GN57Pog3YM4j8L5bGyViBItCxcnSzIQ fell too many times
13:41:02 <ynpvisitorCC> No snow Kevin
13:41:59 <Kevin L™🌵> That was looking pretty nasty that direction.
13:44:53 <STS - laptop> I miss all of the excitement!
13:45:02 <Joe> wb STS
13:45:08 <STS - laptop> Thanks Joe
13:45:23 <ynpvisitor37> i see west gate has a second lane used today ... did they put staff on the gate?
13:45:31 <STS - laptop> I'll be around for a little while now that I'm done for the day
13:46:03 <ynpvisitor37> nope

13:49:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Will Do. Thanks CC
13:56:05 <ynpvisitor37> nope
13:59:09 <ynpvisitor37> one more slice and we hit 10 days
14:01:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. It was sunny here this morning and I just went out to a slow drizzle.
14:05:59 <ynpvisitor37> nope ... 10h now
14:06:41 <ynpvisitor37> or 10d
14:06:58 <LindaG> Oh I missed all the excitement. Out at doctors so it wasnt me on the cam 😊

14:32:07 <ynpvisitor23> looks nice there
14:33:54 <ynpvisitorCC> Just to let everyone know it was LE that wasmoving the cam.
14:34:07 <BSK> Glad to hear it. Thanks!
14:34:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks
14:34:18 <ynpvisitor23> Nice they have it to help
14:36:22 <ynpvisitorCC> I sent Joe a PM..please make sure he knows it was LE.

14:36:56 <Eric> Will do CC
14:38:03 <ynpvisitor23> beautiful
14:48:39 <ynpvisitor37> nope
14:48:49 <BSK> thanks for clarifying, 37. At some point today, when a "nope" seemed completely random, I almost asked what you were "nopeing."
14:49:07 <ynpvisitor37> :)
14:49:31 <ynpvisitor23> "They've got the Steamboat blues..."
14:49:34 <ynpvisitor37> looking at the slice every 10 min at 6 after...been a bit distracted recently
14:49:40 <ynpvisitor23> singing longingly
14:49:41 <Eric> It's to help us line adicts!
14:50:01 <ynpvisitor37> its been going n for a few hours
14:50:05 <BSK> I'm watching it, I just didn't connect it to the "nopes." :)
14:52:09 <STS - phone> No OF yet?
14:52:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Nope.
14:52:55 <BSK> *laughs*
14:53:21 <ynpvisitor23> 1638ie
14:53:50 <ynpvisitor23> it was erupting when I made the beautiful comment
14:53:57 <STS - phone> 23, OF was ie at 1638?
14:54:12 <ynpvisitor23> yes
14:54:22 <ynpvisitor23> when CC was on chat talking about LE
14:54:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. I missed it.
14:54:40 <STS - phone> Thank you for clarifying. No one has input it
14:54:46 <ynpvisitor37> that was the "beautiful" comment
14:54:51 <Eric> Group fail
14:55:03 <Eric> <== :-(
14:55:22 <STS - phone> I was in Walmart lol
14:55:24 <ynpvisitor23> I came in late, I wish I was around for the cam moving
14:55:30 <ynpvisitor37> get ready ....
14:55:39 <Eric> I was super exciting...went right AND left!
14:55:40 <ynpvisitor37> nope
14:55:59 <Eric> up and down too!
14:56:05 <Kevin L™🌵> And up and down.
14:56:18 <CraigC> and showed some gravel
14:56:21 <ynpvisitor13> You guys are so weird
14:56:48 <ynpvisitor37> i liked the view in the trees
14:56:51 <Eric> You expect something different from people who sit out for days on end waiting for water to erupt from the ground?
