22:30:22 <Joe> Hi Michael
22:30:29 <Michael> Hi Joe, I thought maybe Grand was 1155 on replay.
22:31:07 <Michael> That's about when I'd want to see it, so my judgment was biased by that...
22:31:40 <Joe> You may be right, and it fits, I'll have another look thanks
22:33:40 <Michael> I've got to head out again. Best of luck seeing anything tonight.
22:35:15 <Joe> 1155 looks like a possible
22:37:43 <Joe> and the activity through 1213 looks good
22:43:03 <Joe> But it is still hare to tell
00:50:01 <ynpvisitor47> Something going on. No idea of what. Lion perhaps?
00:50:24 <ynpvisitor47> Ah, GT says Lion. Thanks
00:52:11 <ynpvisitor57> looks to far back for bee
02:52:40 <999 on phone> I've seen the daytime captures. Indeed not Grand. Wanted to delete it, but can't from the app. Feel free to double-flag it
02:55:32 <ynpvisitor57> illw remove the flag see if you can delete it then
02:58:55 <Joe> flag is gone
03:00:48 <Rice> Good Morning
03:02:12 <999 on phone> Tried, to no avail. Guess I'll have to do it from my laptop instead and file a bug report to the devs
03:03:25 <999 on phone> I did look for Grand on the captures. 1158 looks very promising
03:04:51 <Joe> OK Jarno, yes I just could not be sure
03:05:26 <999 on phone> If so, 1228 would fit with post-Grand V&T ie, with Joe's now-deleted 1223 as restart time
03:07:31 <Joe> After looking at GOSA replay I did not feel the 1223 was Grand either, but I do agree on the V&T
03:13:29 <Joe> After today we may not see many Grands :(
03:18:51 <LindaG> Hi
03:19:58 <LindaG> I saw the grand last night just at dark and posted
03:22:13 <Joe> Linda,If you mean the 2035 it was not Grand
03:22:50 <Joe> It was Spasmodic
03:22:52 <LindaG> What was it?
03:23:08 <LindaG> Ok I'll delete
03:23:43 <LindaG> Done
03:23:52 <Joe> It only had a 3h 11min interval
03:25:16 <LindaG> Ok sorry
03:26:04 <Joe> When Jarno deletes his then there will be behive197"s which is flagged
03:26:21 <Joe> Jarno's is gone
03:26:23 <LindaG> I deleted mine
03:28:33 <Joe> I'm sure there was a 5th grand before midnight as I saw indications of Turban and Vent after midnight
03:30:27 <LindaG> Visibility disappeared very quickly at nightfall
03:31:45 <Joe> snow on dome prevented us seeing the 5th grand, also I did not see Bee at all last night, I'm pretty sure my lone lion at 0246 was actually Lion
03:34:29 <LindaG> It was weird after dark bee just disappeared. Itvwas really bubbling and then nothing. I watched for a while but didnt see it.
03:35:29 <Joe> It may have erupted while the dome was snow covered
03:36:28 <Joe> Linda, have fun being the last operator of this cam :)
03:39:06 <LindaG> would you like to do it joe?
03:39:43 <Joe> No, thanks I have had my fun :)
03:40:22 <LindaG> Ok. I'll get on as soon as its light enough. Thx
03:41:13 <LindaG> I will now OF is due
03:42:04 <ynpvisitor66> When is the cam shutting down again
03:43:22 <Joe> I have appointments to go to, when I come back the new cam will be up.
03:43:55 <Joe> ^^ about 9am or so
03:44:12 <Joe> #66
03:44:47 <LindaGp> Hope so. Ok. I had the feeling it might be down most of day but time will tell.
03:44:49 <ynpvisitor66> Thanks. I'm leading a seminar and I love to put the cam on the screen during the breaks. Wanted to know if it would be worth it.
03:45:02 <CraigC> hey Joe and Linda
03:45:13 <LindaGp> CraigC, hi
03:45:19 <Joe> Hi Craig
03:46:21 <LindaGp> I think they are bringing cam down before 10.
03:46:59 <Joe> # 66 the plan is to move the T! at 10am they plan to move the router about 9am to facilitate a quick change over
03:48:15 <Joe> Craig, how are things old man :)
03:48:53 <CraigC> you sure you want to open that door and hear me start whining? LOL
03:49:05 <Joe> :)
03:49:11 <Joe> OF
03:49:40 <LindaGp> Might be last OF ON CAM ENJOY
03:49:57 <CraigC> I discovered last night that Microsoft made changes with converting music files in their media player, and so now I am having to re-rip all of my cds into my hard drive in mp3 format.... this is going to take several weeks
03:50:49 <CraigC> just so I can be able to sync my music onto USB flash drives to play in the cars
03:50:50 <Joe> They never leave things alone
03:51:29 <CraigC> I have 5 big boxes of cds sitting here in my office now.... :(
03:52:58 <Joe> Many years ago when they made changes to media player I changed all mine to cds, it was many many hours of work.
03:53:40 <Joe> to mp3s,
03:54:05 <CraigC> last year it worked just fine
03:54:39 <CraigC> since i am taking my mom to the park in May, I wanted to make some playlists of stuff she would like...
03:54:55 <CraigC> ughhh
03:55:45 <CraigC> #2, cleaned my coffee maker last night, now my coffee tastes like vinegar LMAO
03:56:38 <LindaGp> Oh yuck
03:57:05 <Rice> Craig is having a terrible horrible no good very bad day.
03:57:36 <LindaGp> Rice, hi
03:57:51 <CraigC> yes, these are problems of the most serious magnitude! ;)
03:58:14 <Joe> I made the mistake of cleaning the coffee pot on my first ship in the Navy, thet darn near threw me overboard.
03:58:34 <Joe> they*
04:00:37 <Joe> Old Faithful actual start time was 0548, anyone care to post
04:00:52 <LindaGp> I will
04:01:13 <Joe> it was a long
04:07:55 <Kat> Good morning!
04:09:48 <Joe> Hi Kat
04:10:22 <LindaGp> Kat, good morning!
04:11:41 <CraigC> hey Kat
04:11:56 <Rice> when did YVO start having a web camera at Biscuit basin?
04:12:47 <CraigC> link?
04:12:55 <LindaGp> Been there quite a while, I think at.least a year
04:13:07 <Joe> That was years ago, do they have another?
04:13:31 <Rice> Looks like last pic was June of 2017, guess it is old. Sorry
04:13:33 <Rice> https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/monitoring_map.html
04:14:16 <LindaGp> Lol then I looked at it quite a while ago
04:15:08 <Rice> Wonder why they are not using it anymore?
04:15:47 <Joe> That camera is now the Yellowstone Lake Cam
04:16:50 <Joe> Before Biscuit it was on the other side of the lake
04:17:17 <Rice> Huh, I like the lake cam, but I would have liked the Biscuit cam also.
04:17:44 <Rice> Other side? As in looking North?
04:18:50 <Joe> In both other places it was solar powered, cell phone connected, and took a picture every 5 min I believe.
04:20:21 <Joe> give me a minute I remember the location vaguely
04:20:42 <ynpvisitor34> It started out on Lake Butte Overlook. The NPS will only allow the USGS to have one camera operating in the park at any one time. It is part of their self made-up policy.
04:22:16 <Joe> Thanks #34 Lake bute it is :)
04:22:32 <Joe> Butte
04:23:30 <ynpvisitor34> Biscuit Basin was the second site. We were hoping for Norris but no cell phone coverage.
04:23:59 <Rice> Well lets write our congressman and complain about that!
04:25:15 <ynpvisitor34> Congress is every bit as much anti-science as PEER. I doubt many of them vaccinate their kids.
04:25:33 <Joe> 34, at the present location on the tower, is it still solar and cell?
04:26:47 <ynpvisitor34> To my understanding yes. It is near the new cell tower in the Lake government complex I think.
04:27:12 <Joe> Thanks
04:27:43 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
04:27:56 <Joe> Hi Jarno
04:28:00 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor999®, good morning
04:31:08 <ynpvisitor999®> so - today is moving day for the cam - any news on how long it will hopefully take?
04:31:58 <Joe> Next Grand will be ~ 1000-1200 we will most likley miss it as the new cam will be pointed away, is my guess
04:32:07 <LindaGp> LC I think
04:33:03 <LindaGp> Shame
04:33:13 <LindaGp> Morning Kent
04:33:20 <Kent> One last look from the old cam
04:33:25 <Joe> Jarno router move ~ 0900, T1 move ~1000, cam up ~ 1030 :)
04:33:39 <Kent> Morning Linda
04:33:49 <LindaGp> 😊I think there will be a lot of that
04:35:24 <LindaGp> Oh no not a wind shift
04:35:40 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully they can do it faster than an hour and a half, but on the other hand, it's better than waiting a whole week :)
04:35:59 <ynpvisitor999®> I wish them good luck
04:36:36 <Kent> Me too. This has been a thorn in Dave's side
04:36:38 <Joe> I hope they bring the keys to the building ;)
04:38:13 <LindaGp> Inguess we have to look at the dead machinery, dint want to miss anything
04:38:56 <Kent> Are we getting new benches?
04:39:03 <ChrisO> morning all :)
04:39:28 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Chris
04:39:36 <LindaGp> Kent, don't know, I was wondering why they took them away. Would make sense.
04:39:43 <CraigC> hey Chris and 999
04:39:49 <ynpvisitor57> Good morning all. So They are changing the camera today?
04:40:02 <Kat> Router to be moved bu 10AM....so we will loose this cam a little before that. Then the settings, pre-sets need to be done and verified. Don't know how long that will take.
04:40:09 <LindaGp> That is the plan
04:40:10 <Joe> I think so Kent, they put in new ones when they redid the first part of the BW
04:40:29 <LindaGp> ChrisO, hi
04:40:44 <Kat> *by 10 AM
04:41:48 <LindaGp> Looks calm
04:42:03 <Kat> Hoping for a smooth transition! :) We will see as the day unfolds!
04:42:07 <ynpvisitor3> no overnight Grand time?
04:42:22 <ChrisO> visibility was crap last night
04:42:25 <ynpvisitor3> before or after midnight?
04:42:31 <Joe> Linda can you see to the left what they have done to the bw so far?
04:42:45 <Kent> Looks like we have lost Daisy also
04:42:56 <ynpvisitor3> ok..... so not sure if it had 5
04:43:17 <Joe> thanks got some boards removed
04:43:51 <Kat> It does look like they are replacing some benches..
04:44:02 <LindaGp> Anybody see bubblers on bee?
04:44:10 <LindaGp> I couldn't tell
04:44:16 <Joe> I did/could not see Daisy at all last night
04:44:30 <Kat> Not yet! Wouldn't it be awesome to have 1 more Bee here!
04:44:55 <LindaGp> It would be nice
04:45:10 <Kent> New views may take a little getting used to.
04:45:24 <LindaGp> Talk about pressure 😉
04:45:36 <ynpvisitor999®> One of the first things to do, would be making a map
04:45:38 <Kat> :)
04:46:09 <Joe> I'm guessing Bee erupted while the dome was snow covered, if so Bee late this eve?
04:46:23 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor999®, yes they are going to work on map and presets
04:47:21 <Kat> I would think it went yesterday - last entry was 4/8 2047
04:48:55 <LindaGp> It was bubbling up a storm at nightfall
04:50:32 <LindaGp> Static looks nice
04:50:55 <Kent> I am hoping for better weather opening weekend.
04:51:33 <Joe> Yes shortly after dark the dome was covered with snow I barely saw the 2212 oF
04:51:41 <LindaGp> A little sunshine would be nice
04:52:49 <Kat> Love the snowy trees on static
04:54:24 <LindaGp> Looks nice
04:55:53 <LindaGp> One last look
04:58:22 <LindaGp> Ng
04:58:42 <LindaGp> Sorey
04:59:15 <ynpvisitor999®> that looks very NG-like
04:59:23 <ynpvisitor999®> because it is
04:59:29 <LindaGp> Yea ng
05:00:05 <LindaGp> Got so excited lost control lol
05:00:15 <ynpvisitor999®> still going :D
05:00:24 <Kent> Excellent
05:00:29 <Kat> Nice !!
05:00:33 <Joe> intermediate
05:00:42 <LindaGp> Darn of
05:00:50 <ynpvisitor999®> could you co-operate once, OF
05:01:18 <ynpvisitor999®> well, if Lion hadn't ended its series by now, it most likely has ended now
05:02:44 <ynpvisitor999®> that was fun
05:03:09 <Kat> :)
05:04:07 <Joe> Lion was a one off ini I saw nothing after that
05:04:41 <LindaGp> Lc
05:05:04 <LindaGp> Don't see bubblers
05:10:18 <LindaGp> And where was Craig? I think he missed another ng
05:11:29 <Kat> :(
05:11:50 <ChrisO> what is ng?
05:12:05 <LindaGp> North goggle
05:12:13 <ChrisO> thank you :)
05:12:20 <Joe> Sorry folks I took a better look at my Lion 0246, i now believe it was Beehive
05:12:28 <LindaGp> Did you see it a little while ago?
05:12:51 <Joe> Yes 0658
05:13:23 <LindaGp> Oh i meant chrisO
05:13:38 <LindaGp> He asked what NG was
05:13:39 <Joe> sorry
05:13:56 <LindaGp> No problem
05:15:00 <LindaGp> Oh well won't see bee this morning
05:15:12 <Dave from B™> And, this is why it takes 3-5 days to remove snow on the bw
05:15:20 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
05:15:45 <Joe> Hi Dave
05:15:58 <LindaGp> Hi dave
05:17:49 <Kat> Joe, just looked at overnight and I agree - 0246 - Bee
05:17:57 <Kat> Hi Dave
05:18:15 <ChrisO> no, i didnt see it. Im still learning the names of all the geysers
05:18:24 <Joe> Some one look at the overnight, 0246 ontime I see Bee the other I see lion, which on do you think it was
05:18:49 <Joe> It was not both
05:18:52 <ChrisO> morning Dave
05:19:00 <Kat> :)
05:19:20 <Joe> time says Bee or a very early Lion
05:21:14 <Joe> It looks way back in Lions place
05:21:37 <LindaGp> Looks close I vote beehive
05:22:06 <LindaGp> Hehe every body see something difderent
05:22:18 <Joe> I'll leave it as Beehive
05:24:51 <Dave from B™> Maybe Kevin can break the tie
05:25:05 <Joe> There was steam in area ~15min before like bubblers not defined like indy, but who knows?
05:25:29 <Dave from B™> What time do the lights go out today?
05:25:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll check soon - currently paying more attention to a press conference about the first image of a black hole
05:25:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I can't get youtube to work
05:25:44 <Joe> ~0900
05:25:52 <ynpvisitor999®> really? Black Hole is a geyser?
05:27:03 <Joe> So Dave, oink oink, my last hogging of Beehive :)
05:27:30 <ynpvisitor999®> oh yeah - I forgot I had seen some Black Hole entries last summer
05:27:48 <Kat> OF
05:27:51 <LindaGp> Of
05:28:19 <LindaGp> Fuzzy wuzzy
05:28:44 <Dave from B™> haha Joe

05:31:10 <Kat> Wind is definitely going the wrong way this AM
05:38:24 <LindaGp> LC
05:39:30 <LindaGp> Very quiet
05:39:39 <Joe> Where is Go SOMETHING this morning ?
05:40:02 <Joe> GO*
05:41:10 <LindaGp> Wondering same thing. Missed Ng. Maybe he can't face it, the change. Or hes working. 😉
05:45:25 <Dave from B™> Maybe he is GO TO WORK this morning?
05:46:42 <LindaG> Work always interferes with fun!
05:46:56 <Chancellor> Good Morning all
05:47:08 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Chancellor
05:47:29 <KittyM*> Good morning
05:47:36 <Chancellor> looks like a couple inches of snow over night
05:48:16 <LindaG> KittyM*, good morning
05:48:42 <Dave from B™> We have a partially white lawn this morning
05:49:03 <Chancellor> lots of rain in Great Falls
05:49:58 <Dave from B™> Yeah. here too.. puddles everywhere
05:50:38 <LindaG> Sprinkler
05:56:31 <Joe1> this will be a nice view in a few hours https://imgur.com/a/zowzvRL
05:56:47 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm. My connection to GT seems to be troubled, or they started working on moving the cam already
05:56:57 <ynpvisitor999®> lovely white X
05:57:05 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, no white X now
05:57:13 <LindaG> It will
05:57:15 <ynpvisitor999®> and a livestream again
05:57:17 <Eric> smooth here
05:57:19 <Eric> good morning
05:57:24 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
05:57:27 <LindaG> Eric, ho
05:57:37 <LindaG> Lol hi
05:58:13 <Kat> Hi all!
05:58:32 <Kat> I'm going to miss this view! :(
05:58:34 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kat
05:58:37 <LindaG> I think all the geysers are protesting
05:58:50 <Kat> Me too Linda!
05:59:17 <CraigC> hey Eric
05:59:30 <LindaG> Marmot cave
05:59:30 <Eric> Hi Kat, Linda, Jarno & Craig
05:59:43 <Joe> https://imgur.com/a/zowzvRL can you name all the geysers in this view?
05:59:54 <LindaG> See it Kat?
06:00:15 <Kat> Indeed!!
06:00:26 <LindaG> Big one
06:00:34 <CraigC> cool shot
06:00:41 <Eric> and what year, day and month it was taken
06:01:06 <Eric> Go..winner gets free webcam viewing!
06:01:31 <Kat> Haha Eric!!!
06:02:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Solitary, Lion, Little Cub, Lioness, Big Cub, Sponge, North Goggle, Goggles Spring, The Dwarfs, Scissors, Beehive, Beehive's Indicator, Pump, Doublet Pool, Giantess, Anemone-Big, Anemone-Little, Aurum; Vault?
06:02:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Just some of them
06:02:53 <ynpvisitor999®> and those are the obvious ones, there are many, many more
06:02:59 <ynpvisitor47> How will it look like towards Grotto/Giant?
06:03:10 <Eric> how are you seeing marmot cave Linda?
06:03:43 <ynpvisitor999®> you can acutally see the foot of Dome's cone
06:03:50 <ynpvisitor999®> actually*
06:04:37 <Eric> There are quite a few holes on the backside of the ridge where marmot cave is...not sure anyone can confirm a marmot cave eruption from the webcam?
06:04:44 <LindaG> Eric, zoomed in before. Steam
06:05:22 <Eric> I would love to see some video of what we are assuming is a marmot cave eruption.
06:06:09 <LindaG> Stopped now.
06:06:43 <ynpvisitor999®> almost forgot I had to do some daytime and overnight captures reviewing
06:06:51 <LindaG> I had talked with Graham about it recently. He felt that if it was steaming it was a viable entry.
06:06:58 <LindaG> Daisy
06:06:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Will look for the assumed 0246 Beehive
06:07:44 <Kat> Marmot has been posted on wc in the past.
06:08:04 <Kent> Now we have a time to work off of
06:08:34 <Joe1> https://imgur.com/a/Gbh78bh towards down basin not quite the same angle as what will be
06:09:35 <Kent> This is going to be fun but probably a whole new set of challenges.
06:09:45 <CraigC> see BSB
06:09:59 <ynpvisitor47> Thank you , Joe1
06:10:04 <ynpvisitor999®> can confirm 0246 Beehive - duration is 5 minutes, latter steam clearly originates from a place lower than Lion
06:10:33 <Joe> Thanks Jarno
06:11:15 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it either had a very brief Indicator of ~1m or no Indicator at all
06:11:35 <LindaG> Lc
06:11:44 <ynpvisitor999®> doggie
06:11:59 <LindaG> Doggie
06:12:13 <Kat> His last pic on the cam!!
06:12:23 <ChrisO> coooool
06:12:26 <Kent> That's a lot of meat!
06:12:44 <Joe> Yum, Yum
06:12:50 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a hazard I never had on any of my jobsites.
06:12:59 <Kent> :)
06:13:18 <Kat> He's headed to the Inn to check out the new cam!
06:13:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Soon the cam will bear a 'Bison Approved' sticker :D
06:13:44 <Kent> He's not headed there for the buffet
06:14:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I gave up on youtube on my computer but tried it on iPad. I agree on the BH for 0246 also.
06:14:10 <Kent> Static bison
06:14:22 <Kat> That's for sure Kent!!
06:14:29 <ChrisO> just standing there on static lol
06:14:58 <Kat> He's saying - where is everyone?
06:21:37 <LindaG> Hard to believe it took beehiventhat.long to go off, but inthink that is bee also
06:21:46 <CraigC> maybe they're doing prep work at Norris
06:21:54 <LindaG> *beehive that
06:22:25 <LindaG> CraigC, you missed another NG 😯
06:22:45 <CraigC> I saw that :(
06:22:55 <CraigC> been doing tasks here
06:23:05 <LindaG> Another big one
06:23:34 <CraigC> cool for those of you that caught it
06:24:14 <LindaG> Might be another, dont move and dont avert eyes from screen. Lol
06:24:17 <Kat> There will be more just from a different angle...
06:25:21 <CraigC> haha, watching my stock trading screen and converting files on another
06:25:42 <LindaG> 😊

06:30:54 <Kent> This ain't no Swiss watch. If we have an image by quitting time I will be grateful! :)
06:31:37 <LindaG> Supposedly they are taking down at 9
06:32:08 <CraigC> just had a funny image come up on my FB memories, before I had ever started coming to this dashboard....
06:32:13 <ChrisO> atleast they only have a few inches to shovel today rather then feet
06:32:27 <ynpvisitor999®> we're counting down towards 0900 - every additional time is an extra bonus for us :D
06:32:30 <CraigC> here; https://imgur.com/xkCXh9p
06:32:31 <Kent> OK~~~~~ I'm just being cynical
06:32:48 <LindaG> Kent, and rightly so...
06:33:09 <CraigC> I had labeled the photo; "crytpozoologists measuring alleged Sasquatch prints at Old Faithful"
06:33:50 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
06:34:02 <LindaG> CraigC, 😄
06:34:20 <CraigC> it was 4/10/15, I wonder what they were really doing
06:34:23 <ynpvisitor999®> how's that person seeing even a thing through the windshield
06:34:38 <LindaG> Cam is gone
06:34:51 <LindaG> In will try to reestablish
06:34:58 <ChrisO> and now we wait
06:35:00 <ynpvisitor999®> and it's back
06:35:17 <LindaG> Yup back
06:35:29 <ynpvisitor999®> I really thought that car's back didn't have any windows
06:35:35 <ChrisO> there he cleaned his windshield off for you
06:36:49 <Kent> That's a lot of boardwalk to shovel by hand
06:37:08 <ChrisO> yep, and theres a snow blower right there....
06:37:29 <LindaG> Yeah and slowly
06:37:44 <Kat> I know - use the blower..really??
06:38:36 <Kat> There goes the smart guy!
06:40:20 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm - needing three people to start a snow blower. Must've frozen solid overnight
06:40:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
06:40:27 <Dave from B™> What happens first? Cam up and operational or snow removed off the bw?
06:40:31 <LindaG> Dome erupting
06:40:43 <Dave from B™> Stay tuned NEXT week for the answer:D
06:40:44 <ynpvisitor999®> I think the latter, Dave
06:42:22 <ynpvisitor999®> By the way, during that 1h40m Lion interval yesterday, Lion had a minor almost indistinguishable (hope I wrote that right) from an extended roar
06:42:38 <ynpvisitor999®> 24s at max
06:42:56 <LindaG> Might have to send a peep on reconnaissance
06:43:12 <Kat> :)
06:44:06 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, it was like a loonngg roar
06:45:14 <LindaG> LC check
06:45:23 <Kat> :thumbsup:
06:45:26 <LindaG> LC
06:45:39 <Ryan> They pick great days to move, eh?
06:46:31 <ynpvisitor999®> well, it has to happen on some day, doesn't it?
06:46:53 <Kat> Sprinkler
06:46:53 <Kat> Sprinkler
06:47:02 <Ryan> i meant the active snowing lol
06:47:04 <Kat> That was wierd!
06:47:28 <LindaG> Twitchy finger
06:47:31 <Kat> My cam has stopped
06:47:40 <ynpvisitor75> Cam still workign here
06:47:41 <ynpvisitor75> working
06:47:50 <LindaG> Refresh its up
06:47:53 <Kat> It's back!!
06:48:15 <ynpvisitor75> Wonder how many times they will have to reshovel the boardwalk
06:48:46 <LindaG> It's like doing dishes, they never stop
06:48:53 <Kat> :lol:
06:48:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T-11m
06:49:27 <LindaG> Will we see OF, hmmmmm
06:49:55 <Kat> Yes
06:50:03 <LindaG> Well it's been nice knowing everyone 😉
06:50:16 <Kat> I am not sure it will be exactlyn 0900
06:50:26 <Kat> *exactly
06:50:48 <CraigC> I'm not going to expire when the cam does. I hope.
06:50:48 <ChrisO> they say 9, what the really mean is sometime between 9 am and 5pm
06:50:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
06:51:00 <LindaG> Lol
06:51:42 <CraigC> I did my dishes though.... but no snow to shovel
06:51:47 <ynpvisitor75> Groblong steam?
06:54:03 <ynpvisitor59> I thought it was going down at 10?
06:54:27 <Ryan> CraigC, do you live in SLC?
06:54:48 <CraigC> Ryan, about 60 miles north, in North Ogden
06:55:18 <ynpvisitor999®> T-5m
06:55:19 <LindaG> Camera atn10, but they have prep work before then
06:55:22 <Ryan> Ah, I have family in Cottonwood Heights and Sandy I will be visiting around July 4.
06:56:14 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like snow didn't cover the cam this night, but it was a whole lot of OF gunk that did that
06:56:43 <Ryan> If I find my way north we should grab a cup of coffee or something...
06:56:50 <CraigC> I was born in SLC. Any adventures while you are out here?
06:56:55 <ynpvisitor59> At least new cam spot will not have gunk
06:57:00 <LindaG> Yeah its a love/hate relationship between OF and camera
06:57:46 <ynpvisitor59> more like the wind and the cam
06:57:53 <Ryan> Nine mile canyon, Strawberry, the Cottonwood Canyons, etc... We visit every other year or so
06:58:10 <CraigC> Nine Mile down by Price?
06:58:37 <Ryan> Yup
06:58:52 <CraigC> I still haven't been there
06:59:14 <LindaG> Come on OF one more time
06:59:32 <Casey> 30s
06:59:40 <ynpvisitor999®> chance exists they'll let OF go before the cam is taken down
06:59:53 <ynpvisitor46> Hello all, I am going to disconnect the T1 line in about a half an hour. At 10 AM the new webcam should come online in its location on top of the Inn.
06:59:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T-0
07:00:14 <CraigC> ynpvisitor46, thanks for the heads up
07:00:17 <Casey> Thanks 46
07:00:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks for the info, 46
07:00:18 <LindaG> Ok thx ynpvisitor46,
07:00:22 <ynpvisitor999®> so T-30
07:00:30 <ynpvisitor46> lol.
07:00:48 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 0900
07:01:05 <LindaG> Oh just when I'm leaving. Well Kevin will know where everything is
07:01:10 <ynpvisitor46> Just spread the word. Hopefully the infrastructure is in place this time and it will only be an hour or so lapse in time.
07:01:14 <LindaG> OF
07:01:30 <LindaG> NICE ON STATIC
07:01:52 <CraigC> that's one eager snow shoveler
07:02:01 <LindaG> There we go
07:02:17 <ynpvisitor999®> last time OF will be able to give the cam a shower
07:02:17 <LindaG> I think he was getting wet
07:02:43 <ynpvisitor46> Also Geyser Hill is slated to open with the road. The crew that you see in the cam will repair the GH boardwalk as well as replace the last half of the OF boardwalk.
07:02:59 <ynpvisitor999®> awesome!
07:03:02 <LindaG> Some more
07:03:33 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the info 46. Best of luck in cam switchover.
07:03:47 <CraigC> ynpvisitor46, are you referring to the section that was closed for the new thermal activity?
07:05:32 <CraigC> Dave from B™, what days are you going?
07:05:45 <Kat> Thanks 46 - exciting day!
07:06:14 <LindaG> I'm starving havent head breakfast
07:06:41 <Kat> i haven't either!!
07:06:49 <CraigC> nor I
07:07:00 <Kat> It's now lunchtime! :)
07:07:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I just cooked a biscuit & sausage with fresh eggs.
07:07:15 <LindaG> Geysers first, food later ha!
07:07:33 <Kat> Haha - what have we come to??
07:07:35 <Dave from B™> CraigC, my first planned trip is just after Memorial Day. I hope to get to Norris sometime after May 12
07:07:37 <ynpvisitor999®> That's a first - wasn't able to get any unentered data from the overnights
07:07:39 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, oh you!
07:08:15 <Kat> Kevin - making me hungrier!
07:08:17 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, now I'm even more hungry
07:08:25 <Dave from B™> CraigC, to answer your q for 46. Yes, the damaged section is being repaired but not rerouted
07:08:25 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I'm there on the 13th, if SB isn't in a window, you should try to meet us on GH
07:09:44 <CraigC> if we make it to West early enough that day, I'll try to head straight to UGB
07:09:59 <Dave from B™> CraigC, that's probably not likely since I have a late June trip as well but let's see what transpires in the next few weeks. I would like to meet you
07:10:11 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:10:53 <CraigC> I may do some quick trips during the summer, even though I hate battling the tourist season
07:11:33 <LindaG> Drops look like little erupting geysers
07:12:36 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, are you excited youll be the first operator on new cam
07:13:06 <Kat> It will be fun Kevin!!
07:13:37 <LindaG> He's eating, I know it!
07:13:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Sort of like driving a new car for the first time.
07:14:08 <Kat> That's a LOL for sure!! :lol::lol:
07:14:39 <Kat> Just don't crash it! :)
07:15:01 <LindaG> Well I'll be glued to the screen so on Friday I know where everything is, or at least OF. hehe.
07:16:00 <Dave from B™> CriagC, come do a 2 day SB sit with me. You don't have to deal with traffic then
07:16:48 <LindaG> Lc
07:16:58 <ynpvisitor48> Bison roaming on Electric Peak static
07:17:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I am supposed to set up some rough presets today.
07:18:06 <LindaG> That will help for sure
07:20:29 <Kat> I'm not driving until tomorrow evening, I'll be watching and learning too!
07:20:38 <LindaG> Right after my first visit to yellowstone I found this cam and have watched it everyday since.
07:21:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, if I can work out getting a trailer in the next couple of months, then I would probably go up and camp at Norris during a window
07:22:13 <Dave from B™> We need snow to melt first
07:22:39 <CraigC> it will :)
07:22:49 <Eric> Here to watch the camera stop :-P
07:23:15 <Dave from B™> ERic, about like watching paint dry
07:23:42 <Casey> Get a big trailer Craig. I'm sure you will have plenty of visitors.
07:24:01 <CraigC> Casey, haha, then nope, the opposite ;)
07:24:05 <LindaG> Eric, why not? Hehe
07:24:50 <Dave from B™> I was already going to invite myself. Way to ruin it Casey:D
07:26:27 <LindaG> *Craig mysteriously disappears from chat, never to be heard from again
07:26:41 <CraigC> :i::i:
07:27:25 <ynpvisitor999®> T-3
07:27:44 <Dave from B™> haha
07:28:14 <Eric> It's true Jarno :-P
07:28:38 <ynpvisitor999®> T-2
07:28:40 <Eric> T-1 only provides about 750Kbps
07:28:46 <LindaG> I think the pressure is getting to us
07:28:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T-1
07:29:13 <Eric> I think they have 1.5Mbps I believe...
07:29:17 <Kat> Your making me nervous here! :p
07:29:26 <Eric> Still live!
07:29:29 <ynpvisitor999®> T-30s
07:29:41 <Dave from B™> Sayonara old view. It's been fun
07:29:44 <ynpvisitor999®> T-15s
07:29:49 <ynpvisitor999®> T-10s
07:29:53 <ynpvisitor999®> T-5s
07:29:56 <Eric> Good Luck YNP...I hope to see you on the flip side with a shiny new cam!
07:29:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T0
07:30:01 <LindaG> He said about
07:30:05 <DB-Cooper> TI-30 calculator?
07:30:05 <Casey> T+5
07:30:17 <Eric> TI-994a
07:30:18 <Ryan> I prefer the TI36x
07:30:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I has a Ti-51
07:30:24 <DB-Cooper> LOL
07:30:30 <Eric> I prefer HP :-P
07:30:34 <Casey> Is that DB-Cooper or DB-Copper?
07:30:34 <Kat> :D
07:30:42 <Ryan> 6061-T6 anyone?
07:30:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Give me an HP 11C anyday!
07:30:55 <DB-Cooper> I think the TI-30 is what we used in HS in mid 70s, they are still a thing?
07:31:00 <Ryan> Yes
07:31:01 <ynpvisitor999®> T+1
07:31:11 <Eric> I loved my chicklet Timex Sinclair :-D
07:31:20 <Dave from B™> WE will even get to use the wipers on Day 1.
07:31:31 <DB-Cooper> Casey, Cooper, the guy that parachuted out of a jetliner over Oregon
07:31:34 <ynpvisitor999®> one last zoom I guess
07:31:36 <Dave from B™> Will this be like before where you have to contact CC to do a wipe?
07:31:48 <Eric> Maybe Dave...the new cam is pretty well covered from above I believe
07:31:50 <Kat> It's been Grand ! Will miss this space!
07:32:03 <LindaG> I like this view
07:32:10 <Kat> :)
07:32:13 <Dave from B™> RIP, cam tree
07:32:20 <Eric> Pan wide while we can!
07:32:32 <Eric> bye cabins
07:32:41 <Ryan> goodnight john boy
07:32:58 <Eric> I love that cabin
07:33:07 <Casey> Ok, DB-Cooper. I'm familiar with the event. To a guess at your real identity but was clearly wrong. I shouldn't be surprised with D.B. Cooper though.
07:33:08 <DB-Cooper> last thing we saw was a tree branch
07:33:16 <Casey> Just a guess
07:33:30 <Eric> We need a good view for the frozen frame
07:33:48 <LindaG> How's that
07:33:53 <Eric> preferrably not the start of a giantess eruption :-P
07:33:54 <Casey> Ahhh. Craig
07:34:03 <Casey> I was thinking the same thing Eric
07:34:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion-Beehive-NG would be my preference
07:34:15 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, same
07:35:05 <Eric> I assume CenturyLink will yank the cord
07:35:14 <LindaG> Duck
07:35:25 <Casey> Goose?
07:35:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Swan
07:35:37 <LindaG> Any requests?
07:35:38 <Kat> What??
07:35:52 <CraigC> Lion area
07:35:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion-Beehive-NG area
07:36:15 <ynpvisitor999®> perfect
07:36:28 <Kat> Down basin but not too far in
07:36:30 <Eric> something without the construction guys
07:36:34 <Casey> Any view without the heavy machinery
07:36:38 <CraigC> agree
07:36:42 <Eric> I liked the hill shot
07:36:58 <Eric> Nice!
07:37:19 <Eric> and we are deaqd
07:37:21 <LindaG> Hard to get rid of them
07:37:29 <Eric> Camera is on the move
07:37:38 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:37:42 <ynpvisitor999®> well - stillframe is just wide :(
07:37:45 <Casey> Just in time
07:37:46 <CraigC> breakfast time :)
07:37:46 <LindaG> Camera not responding
07:37:57 <Ryan> Still have it here
07:37:59 <Ryan> For now
07:38:03 <Ryan> there it goes
07:38:06 <Kat> me too
07:38:12 <Rice> Wanna bet Giantess erupts while cam is down!
07:38:17 <Kat> not now!
07:38:24 <LindaG> Gone
07:38:24 <Fingers Crossed> You people with delays should be frozen about now
07:38:28 <ynpvisitor999®> we still have static :D
07:38:28 <Katie> Hush, Rice!
07:38:37 <ChrisO> it down
07:38:38 <Casey> At least it would still be ie when the cam comes back on
07:39:34 <Casey> I'm going to need a new one of these http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
07:39:44 <GO WEBCAM> I hope Giantess erupts, dont confuse the geysers by telling them not to erupt
07:39:44 <ynpvisitor999®> T+7m~19s
07:40:33 <LindaG> Well got to get breakfast
07:40:35 <ynpvisitor999®> they wanted to have the cam up and running around 1000?
07:40:37 <ynpvisitor59> No Giantess until the park is open and the bw fixed!
07:40:54 <GO WEBCAM> Giantess now and again after opening please
07:41:04 <Fingers Crossed> Too bad you cannot add the ini tag to your gt entry Jarno :-P
07:41:11 <Casey> Took the words right out of my mouth Graham
07:41:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I actually can add an ini to that entry, FC
07:41:52 <Fingers Crossed> But this is the second in the series :-P
07:42:08 <Fingers Crossed> The ini was a minor
07:42:08 <Jimbo Lanthanum> First let them get the cam up, then they can go fix the Giantess valve.
07:42:41 <ynpvisitor999®> that failed move? That was the initial - this is a series within a series if you think about it :P
07:42:56 <Ryan> Dead Cam 0942ie?
07:42:58 <Fingers Crossed> :-D
07:43:03 <Fingers Crossed> 9:37
07:43:11 <Fingers Crossed> exact
07:43:56 <Fingers Crossed> But feel free to log your observations :-P
07:44:01 <Casey> Giantess's activity drastically dropped once webcams were introduced. Sounds like the observer effect to me. Now should be prime Giantess time.
07:44:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Such a thing actually happened when the cam was down due to a lightning strike
07:45:24 <Casey> Giant's first eruption in a long time was during that outage, right?
07:45:25 <ynpvisitor999®> it was actually very close to eruption then - I recall seeing a note of the whole pool boiling
07:45:32 <Fingers Crossed> Lot of banging around happening at Norris today
07:45:47 <Fingers Crossed> wonder if maintenance is up there getting the BWs ready :-D
07:46:30 <Ryan> I remember our excitement over 2ft boils in 2014 - Graham responded with a photo of a 40ft boil ;)
07:46:49 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
07:46:50 <Casey> 40ft boil? Yikes
07:47:45 <GO GIANTESS> I think you exagerate a little Ryan ... probably no more that 15'
07:47:49 <ynpvisitor48> I'm so used to the swaying that the final image is moving for me :p
07:48:12 <GO GIANTESS> that was a big boil :)
07:48:38 <Fingers Crossed> Any Odes to the old cam?
07:49:07 <LindaG> Well I think ita appropriate that my last entry was LC
07:49:32 <Fingers Crossed> :thumbsup:
07:49:56 <Ryan> GG it was the start of an eruption IIRC
07:49:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T-10
07:50:35 <Fingers Crossed> The old cam was great, but it couldn't negate, the need for are very nice view, so we built a new spot and got what we got, but some don't find the new cam hot!
07:51:00 <Fingers Crossed> :-D
07:51:48 <Fingers Crossed> I know others can do better....
07:51:50 <LindaGt> 😊
07:51:55 <Casey> Scott's book has Giantess intervals at 0-41 years, but I don't see data to support that. Was it completely inactive during early years of the park?
07:52:25 <ynpvisitor48> We can each do one line of prose: I watched the cam by day and by night...
07:52:26 <Casey> I know early expeditions saw it erupt
07:52:33 <LindaGt> If only we could have two, oh what a view!
07:52:34 <GO GIANTESS> it was the start of the 13 Sept 2011 eruption
07:52:46 <ynpvisitor48> On occasion we saw quite a sight...
07:53:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Or a total white-out
07:53:22 <ynpvisitor48> Bison chasing tourists around; but we never ever heard any sound
07:53:57 <LindaGt> Bears lurking but nary a growl...
07:54:39 <GO GIANTESS> the Jake eruption: "whats that big steam cloud on Geyser Hill?
07:55:50 <Fingers Crossed> The view, like a ship, we peered through the fog
07:56:34 <ynpvisitor48> The Cam Ops always on the job :D
07:56:53 <Fingers Crossed> Nice :-D
07:56:56 <LindaG> Upon the plain of eruptions , we're such hogs
07:57:44 <Fingers Crossed> It's getting better!
07:58:12 <Fingers Crossed> Still wish someone would fix the darn clock on the VEC static cam!
07:58:47 <Fingers Crossed> 2 minutes and we should see the new cam...right?
07:58:51 <Fingers Crossed> :-P
07:59:09 <ynpvisitor999®> T-1
07:59:16 <ynpvisitor48> Passing weeks and days while all did gaze
08:00:11 <ynpvisitor48> Farewell old friend...
08:00:32 <ynpvisitor118> This is all Kevin's fault. I came in vor one last look cause he said 10 was the time.
08:00:42 <LindaGt> You guys are going to make me cry
08:01:02 <Fingers Crossed> Farewell....
08:01:12 <Rice> When was this cam installed?
08:01:36 <Fingers Crossed> Good Question Rice...we really need a webcam wiki with a history page
08:01:46 <LindaGt> How about...thanks for the memories...
08:01:53 <Rice> That might be a little too much
08:02:20 <Kat> :)
08:02:28 <LindaGt> Eric could link to it
08:02:39 <Fingers Crossed> wikis are awesome and easier to build
08:03:00 <ynpvisitor48> In the meantime, enyou Yosemite Falls https://www.yosemiteconservancy.org/webcams/yosemite-falls
08:03:04 <Fingers Crossed> I might add one at some point, that we can use for a more dynamic way to include long term information here.
08:03:06 <ynpvisitor48> *enjoy
08:03:43 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor48, check out see jackson hole
08:04:28 <Ryan> 999, random, did you have a chart of data regard Lion stuff?
08:04:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I do
08:04:43 <Rice> How about Steamtown, The Steam part is correct. https://www.earthcam.com/usa/pennsylvania/scranton/?cam=steamtown
08:04:55 <Ryan> can i see it? c:
08:05:09 <ynpvisitor118> Think those workers are tiered of standing there yet?
08:05:10 <ynpvisitor999®> https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Na_MN5TMGaaizoKfZTYVjsx6FlhrLoHS
08:05:42 <Casey> They weren't moving much when the cam was on either
08:06:16 <Casey> That's actually not true. They seemed pretty active today. Yesterday was a perpetual lunch break.
08:06:21 <Ryan> thats really cool
08:06:21 <Rice> I hope Yosemite Falls has that much water when I am there in August
08:06:23 <Dave from B™> This camera replaced a camera in the lightning strike...whenever that was...3 or 4 years ago?
08:06:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 1½ year ago if I recall correctly
08:06:54 <Casey> If that was more than 2 years ago I'd be shocked
08:07:03 <Dave from B™> Rice, sorry...much quieter in August. Many of Y's falls are almost dry in August
08:07:27 <Casey> We've had a cam at this location far longer than that though
08:07:33 <Dave from B™> wow....time doesn't fly after all
08:07:35 <Rice> dave: Yea I expect that but , maybe it will rain fo the week before I get there!
08:08:25 <Dave from B™> I've been here at least since May 22, 2011.
08:09:01 <ynpvisitor118> They actually got a lot done Tuesday. Quite a few yards of the old boards puled up. They were just working off cam.
08:09:19 <Casey> I'd believe that, 118
08:10:17 <Dave from B™> Thanks 118. I didn't know
08:10:29 <Casey> This reminds me of the Truman Show. "We're getting higher ratings for this graphic than we've ever had on this show."
08:10:57 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Looks like Porkchop's temperature dropped even further overnight
08:11:00 <Dave from B™> That was a good movie
08:12:00 <Casey> First positions everybody. No one tell Dave that this is all fake and we're paid actors.
08:12:51 <Dave from B™> haha..and I forgot to tell you I work for the government and have been undercover for 8 years
08:13:21 <Dave from B™> There will be some major gazer arrests coming bvery soon
08:13:43 <CraigC> arrest THIS
08:14:15 <Casey> Only if you want your government secrets about what is really happening at Yellowstone to "leak"
08:14:44 <Dave from B™> CraigC, is that how you talk to authority?:)
08:14:55 <LindaGt> Lol
08:15:10 <Casey> I guess GT does a pretty good job leaking what is really happening at Yellowstone anyway. I got nothing.
08:15:21 <ynpvisitor48> There is no new thermal area, its just fake news from MSM
08:15:42 <ynpvisitor51> There is no new thermal area, its just fake news
08:16:09 <Rice> The cam is down, the volcanoe is erupting.
08:16:40 <Casey> I wonder what kind of story the Pizzagate originators could come up with if they tried to decode our messages on here
08:16:41 <LindaGt> I should see the cloud arriving soon
08:17:57 <ynpvisitor51> What is Dave hiding in SB?
08:18:17 <Casey> We know Jimbo's naming conventions are encoded messages for only the insiders to understand after all
08:18:30 <ynpvisitor51> He was only there when it *wasn't* erupting
08:18:47 <Casey> Dave is Steamboat. There's a reason you haven't seen both of them at the same time.
08:19:02 <Rice> Good one
08:20:49 <Dave from B™> haha Casey
08:21:05 <CraigC> LOL
08:21:11 <Casey> I'm going to have to walk away from the screen. Hopefully I'll be back when the new cam comes on. Otherwise I'll be looking for a text.
08:21:13 <CraigC> that is really funny
08:22:14 <Dave from B™> I use to be as wide as SB but not anymore
08:23:00 <Ryan> Dave, SB is pretty tall and proportionally very well built - I'd love looking like it!
08:23:21 <Ryan> Though the south half of your body would be half the size of the north half lol
08:23:33 <CraigC> ha
08:23:42 <Kent> A text when the new cam comes online would be great!
08:23:51 <ynpvisitor999®> sounds a bit painful during an eruption...
08:23:52 <CraigC> change name to Ilene
08:25:20 <Dave from B™> Let's cut in on the Century team communications....@#$%%#$^ about right now
08:26:19 <Dave from B™> That would be me anyway. That doesn't fir in there. Give me a hammer!!
08:27:44 <CraigC> LOL
08:27:58 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns static
08:28:40 <ynpvisitor28> Kent, we'll send one, prcided it doesnt come up in the middle of the night 😉
08:28:41 <ChrisO> want to see some more doggies
08:28:56 <ynpvisitor28> *provided
08:29:03 <ynpvisitor...> That's not funny!
08:29:05 <Dave from B™> There are usually bigger repairs needed after I start a project. Kind of like the kid who takes something apart and can't get it back together.
08:29:09 <ynpvisitor...> :)
08:32:31 <ynpvisitor118> It only has been an hour. IT probably pulled the router before the Century Link tech left the restaurant.
08:33:07 <ynpvisitor59> What restaurant?
08:33:38 <Dave from B™> BYOBBQ
08:34:05 <Dave from B™> Probably the Running Bear in West
08:34:34 <ynpvisitor59> Not open, it’s the off season
08:34:34 <ynpvisitor118> Dave got it.
08:35:19 <ynpvisitor118> They could be in line for pastries in Three Forks.
08:35:40 <ynpvisitor59> It will be a while then
08:36:34 <Jimbo Lanthanum> Hey Rice, saw your earlier message about Yosemite Falls. I was there in July a couple years ago. Yosemite Falls was dry.
08:37:21 <Rice> Jimbo: I hope not, but that is the chance I am taking by going in the summer.
08:37:36 <ynpvisitor59> I’m still expecting the old cam view will be back after a few hours
08:38:05 <Rice> We are doing, Arches, Zion, Bryce, Grand, Death Valley Sequia's Yosemite, and Redwoods.
08:38:17 <Rice> Gonna be a busy trip West
08:38:31 <ynpvisitor59> Bring sunscreen
08:38:53 <Rice> Dont worry, my wife can get burnt sitting inside, she wont forget it.
08:39:31 <Rice> Just cant make a stop in Yellowstone work on the way home, I keep trying but not enough days.
08:39:47 <ynpvisitor59> Death Valley in July...it should be uncrowded at least
08:40:14 <Rice> Our plan for Death Valley, is go to visitor center, go to badwater basin, and get out.
08:40:22 <CraigC> you going to Canyonlands with Arches?
08:40:27 <Rice> Yes
08:40:42 <CraigC> how many days in Moab?
08:40:49 <Rice> 3 days
08:40:49 <ynpvisitor59> Sounds like a very hot yet fun trip
08:40:57 <CraigC> awesome
08:41:35 <Fingers Crossed> webcam is still down?
08:41:49 <CraigC> one of the funnest things I have done in Moab is a guided tour on RZRs where you drive your own and follow the guide on Hell's Revenge
08:41:53 <Fingers Crossed> I was promised 10am :-P
08:42:37 <ynpvisitor118> Well the webcam is most likely up, network is what is down.
08:42:39 <CraigC> you rent the RZR and drive it yourself
08:42:59 <Dave from B™> Rice, Yosemite is beautiful even if water levels are low
08:43:57 <ynpvisitor59> Just very crowded
08:45:08 <Rice> Yosemite will be a new park for me, Yellowstone is crowed also, but still love it.
08:45:14 <Dave from B™> Just like any park, you can get away from the crowds with early and late touring. But, it is crowded in the valley. Think city touring
08:45:57 <Rice> We are camping in most of the parks, so we can take advatage of early and late.
08:46:04 <ynpvisitor118> Dave you make me want to go there. One less person to trip over.
08:46:05 <ynpvisitor28> I hope to get to yosemite soon. Glacier this june.
08:46:23 <Rice> Also early and late will be cooler, so we can do some hikes then.
08:50:07 <ynpvisitor51> Don't miss sunrise at Sunrise Point in Bryce (and sunset at Sunset Point) - there is a reason these are named so
08:50:25 <ynpvisitor51> It is worth getting up at 5:00 am
08:50:54 <CraigC> there's another point for sunrise, is it Inspiration Point?
08:51:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Bryce udner full moon is incredible.
08:52:09 <ChrisO> that a whole area at night is probably incredible. We have to much light pollution here to see even half of what you can out there.
08:53:34 <ynpvisitor51> I did Death Valley during the full moon, go out to Zabriskie Point - the whole valley lights up under the moonlight, and no stray light.
08:54:09 <ynpvisitor51> Set your camera to f/2.8 and let the exposure go about 30 seconds to two minutes for some excellent images
08:55:50 <ynpvisitor...> Death Valley worth a visit (in the winter). I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Dante's View gets my vote.
08:58:06 <ynpvisitor...> :) All digits crossed perhaps?
08:58:18 <ToesCrossedToo> Yep
08:58:39 <ToesCrossedToo> Digits, Legs...all of it!
08:58:49 <CraigC> eyes
08:58:52 <ynpvisitor51> A trip to Ubehebe crater and then on to the Race Track is also recommended, if you have a whole day in DVNP
08:58:56 <Dave from B™> I've been to Yosemite twice. We will be going back again in 2-3 years. It's hard to go to during waterfall season because the high country isn't open
09:00:53 <ToesCrossedToo> I really enjoyed the slot canyon I hiked in DV when I was there
09:00:57 <ToesCrossedToo> Don't remember the name
09:02:25 <ynpvisitor118> Dead mans canyon? Got to make sure it is not going to storm when walking those.
09:02:33 <ToesCrossedToo> I was there 2 days after the last major flood...it was crazy
09:02:48 <Rice> I am looking for ward to Arches, never been there.
09:02:51 <ToesCrossedToo> I was super paranoid about that 118
09:03:23 <ynpvisitor51> Also in DVNP, getting into the sand dunes at sunset is very nice - basically you can't go wrong anywhere in the park
09:03:30 <Rice> I want to hike the Narrows in Zion, My parents would let me do that 30 years ago, and I resent them to this day for it.
09:04:00 <Rice> Not really, I swore that day, I would go back and do it.
09:04:10 <Rice> And I am
09:04:21 <ToesCrossedToo> I think is was mosaic canyon I did
09:04:31 <ynpvisitor51> Yup, go for it, narrows is a great hike. I also tried to hike up to Angel's Rest, but chickened out in the last stage
09:05:04 <ToesCrossedToo> You guys are making me want to head to utah and get hiking!
09:05:08 <GO WEBCAM> hope there are no thunderstorms Rice - they will close the Narrows if there are
09:05:28 <ToesCrossedToo> I need to spend a couple weeks there just hiking around
09:05:46 <Kevin L™🌵> The Narrows was the most awesome hike I will never do again.
09:05:54 <Rice> That will be my luck.
09:06:06 <Rice> Kevin: Why?
09:06:21 <GO WEBCAM> cant you swim Kevin?
09:06:27 <Katie> In Death Valley?
09:06:45 <Rice> katie, We are talking about Zion.
09:06:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I did it in my 20's and it about killed me then. No way I could do it again but I highly suggest it.
09:07:40 <Rice> We will be prepared for the water, with my kids we wont do it all, but enought to get the feel.
09:07:51 <CraigC> my neighbor does The Subway every year, just outside Zions. I've never been in good enough shape to go
09:07:56 <Kevin L™🌵> We went in from the east side of the park and hiked along a COLD creek to the river then down.
09:08:03 <ToesCrossedToo> the subway?
09:08:25 <CraigC> ToesCrossedToo, google it
09:08:37 <CraigC> amazing repel into hike, one day
09:08:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Water was high so we rod air mattresses a lot of the way down. Killed my knees on the rocks.
09:08:58 <ToesCrossedToo> just did...looks awesome!
09:09:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Views there are stunning.
09:09:30 <ToesCrossedToo> I might try that next year Craig
09:09:50 <CraigC> you'll need to get the permit early in the year
09:10:42 <CraigC> and you need to shuttle from the drop-in to the take out
09:11:07 <Kevin L™🌵> We got to walk the tunnel when we were kids too.
09:11:36 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, it was built back then?
09:12:07 <Kevin L™🌵> The mortar was still wet.
09:12:12 <CraigC> ;)
09:13:30 <Kevin L™🌵> My Uncle was one of the senior rangers there so he took us to a lot of places that I don't even know the names of.
09:14:01 <Kevin L™🌵> And Zion under the full moon is also spectacular.
09:14:56 <ToesCrossedToo> Do we have a betting pool yet on the cam coming back?
09:15:08 <Kevin L™🌵> We need one.
09:15:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I'll take 1145. Do we need to specify a day?
09:16:04 <Kevin L™🌵> A lot of my relatives helped do this bridge: https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBD_enUS810US810&biw=1434&bih=929&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=cSSuXMPTKZHB-wSDkbD4DA&q=stone+bridge+at+zion+national+park&oq=stone+bridge+at+zion+national+park&gs_l=img.3...7735.12773..13589...0.0..0.146.1182.11j3......1....1..gws-wiz-img.wXwn5e2Cggo#imgrc=hfC2RkRIFmFgnM:
09:18:48 <ToesCrossedToo> angels landing looks like a beautiful easy hike
09:19:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Only if you have a death wish.
09:19:33 <CraigC> easy?
09:19:46 <ToesCrossedToo> haha...1500ft of elevation is now my warmup!
09:20:01 <ToesCrossedToo> Jog to the top :-P
09:20:01 <CraigC> seems like 3 to 5 people die there every year
09:20:16 <Kevin L™🌵> But straight down is not fun!
09:20:32 <ToesCrossedToo> I am going to hike mount defiance this year....now that will be a killer hike!
09:20:38 <ToesCrossedToo> I don't mind heights
09:20:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Requires a full pack of Pampers®
09:21:05 <ToesCrossedToo> 5000ft of elevation in 11miles
09:21:09 <Rice> We are going to stay away from Angles landing
09:21:23 <CraigC> I need pampers just to watch some of the Youtubes of the last section with the chains
09:21:44 <ToesCrossedToo> As long as there isn't super strong winds...I am good.
09:23:27 <CraigC> ToesCrossedToo, if I were in that good of shape, I would be climbing routes in the Tetons
09:23:46 <Kevin L™🌵> An easy fun trail is the canyon overlook. Trailhead is just at the east end of the tunnel.
09:24:03 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, I am going to do that one next time
09:24:26 <Rice> Angles Landing hike You Tube - Holy Shit, not gonna happen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy6K0KoMrco
09:24:38 <ToesCrossedToo> Tetons sound nice too...my training ground is the cascades and Columbia River Gorge
09:25:01 <Steph> Hi all! And Angel's Landing IS scary, and hard!
09:25:33 <Kevin L™🌵> We tossed a paper airplane off that one when I was a kid. It went straight up. Took us about 45 minutes to get back to the parking lot and the airplane was just coming down there.
09:26:14 <CraigC> hahaha
09:26:19 <ynpvisitor118> Litter bug
09:26:29 <LindaGt> Looks like Machu Picchu and that guy in green is a showoff
09:26:49 <CraigC> a family was doing it last year or before, and turned around and their daughter wasn't there.... they found her at the bottom
09:27:08 <ToesCrossedToo> Yes, I saw that Craig...sad
09:27:32 <ToesCrossedToo> I would not take anyone that wasn't confident in their ability to climb/balance
09:27:57 <Steph> Or anyone not patient
09:28:00 <ToesCrossedToo> I have always had extremely good balance...genetic thing I guess
09:28:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Frankly I am amazed it is still open.
09:28:15 <ToesCrossedToo> Yes, that is why I want to go soon Kevin
09:28:21 <ToesCrossedToo> Before they close it
09:28:31 <Steph> The buses look like tic-tacs from up there
09:30:06 <Kevin L™🌵> My favorite time to go there was in the fall. Very pretty and cool.
09:32:07 <Casey> I was there in March. Weather was fantastic and not a lot of crowds (other than the Angel's Landing trailhead). The shuttles were not running yet.
09:33:39 <ToesCrossedToo> Is October a good time Kevin?
09:33:41 <ynpvisitor118> Almost the 2 hour mark. Think they have finished the planning session and have an idea what wires to hook up yet?
09:33:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes it is. Can get a bit chilly.
09:34:29 <Rice> Round Wire, into Square Hole...... damn it, we need an adapter......
09:34:58 <ToesCrossedToo> CenturyLink guy needs to drive back to Jackson Hole to find the round to square adapter Rice
09:35:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought YOU were going to bring the screwdriver.
09:35:35 <Rice> have to order from Best Buy, 2 day delivery
09:36:12 <ChrisO> i could drive out there in 2 days
09:36:14 <Teri> gm all; camera switch day or just the server?
09:36:22 <Rice> Why is this power supply rated 480V?
09:36:28 <ToesCrossedToo> Hi Teri, Camera Switch day!
09:36:29 <CraigC> what a geographical oddity, this place is 2 days from everywhere
09:36:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam switch
09:36:41 <ToesCrossedToo> haha...now that is a powerful camera Rice
09:37:00 <Teri> cool; hope we like the new one (!)
09:37:16 <ToesCrossedToo> I hope we get to see the new one :-P
09:37:24 <Teri> lol
09:37:52 <Rice> Maybe they found the secret ranger room with all the buttons to control the geyers!
09:38:02 <CraigC> lol
09:38:03 <ToesCrossedToo> shhhh
09:38:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Radio link is trying to do it with morse code?
09:38:10 <ToesCrossedToo> now it's not secret!
09:38:31 <CraigC> buttons? I thought they were those big round valves like in Poseidon Adventure
09:38:36 <ToesCrossedToo> technically that is pretty much how it works Kevin :-P
09:38:40 <ToesCrossedToo> 0101010101111011101010101
09:39:02 <Kevin L™🌵> True.
09:39:03 <ToesCrossedToo> Just super fast morse code
09:39:55 <Teri> Craig - just skimmed the day's post; Microsoft breaks things on every update; convert to FLAC and USB it on your own; mp3's aren't lossless (if you have to re-rip)
09:40:11 <ToesCrossedToo> 32 people watching the camera be down and chatting :-D
09:40:36 <CraigC> Teri, that was like a foreign language, I don't know what you mean
09:40:58 <ToesCrossedToo> :-D Muggles :-P
09:41:00 <Rice> The problem with the secret room is all the labels are missing from the buttons, so no one knows what geyser goes off when you press it.
09:41:33 <ChrisO> so no one would get mad at me if i kicked the magma chamber...since the secret rooms controls the geysers?
09:41:52 <Casey> The person who pushes the OF button has gotten slow in his old age.
09:41:59 <ChrisO> lol
09:42:41 <Teri> search online - FLAC files won't be degraded from your source but smaller than the .wav files on the cd's; mp3's lose quality (the smaller the file, the more you lose); FLAC is getting to be more prevalent;
09:42:57 <ToesCrossedToo> I am amazed we have so many people on here continuously and the room is so well moderated...thanks to you all!
09:43:27 <Teri> headed out for some outside work before the rain comes; will ck in later (Tacoma, WA)
09:43:29 <CraigC> ohhh, well, I have already ripped about 40 or 50 cds to mp3 since yesterday..... hmmm
09:43:36 <ynpvisitor6> There is no moderator
09:45:07 <Teri> CC - if the recorded source isn't hifi - like historic jazz; you won't notice in the car; more modern full-range recordings may sound better; experiment; all depends on your audio systems
09:45:12 <Ryan> ive been out for an hour, any updates?
09:45:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Not yet.
09:45:49 <GO WEBCAM> our moderation approach is to bore people into leaving
09:46:03 <ynpvisitor118> Hiking in Zion can be hazardous to your health.
09:46:19 <ynpvisitor118> That is about all you missed
09:46:43 <ToesCrossedToo> technically there is a moderator...we have a group moderation process.
09:46:44 <GoldenStatium> Speaking of boring, the tidal bore is coming in this afternoon on the Shubenacadie River in Nova Scotia
09:46:47 <GO WEBCAM> GO ISLES and KNIGHTS
09:46:56 <ynpvisitor6> I can attest to that GO WEBCAM, especially when hockey is the topic
09:47:02 <Kat> Love the tidal bore in NS
09:47:06 <ynpvisitor118> And they run out of water someplace in caulifonia.
09:47:21 <GO WEBCAM> we aim to please #6
09:47:35 <ToesCrossedToo> Yep...tidal bore is cooool
09:47:36 <Casey> Ok. I have to leave again. Enjoy the new cam when it comes up. I hopefully I'll be back while the sun is still up.
09:47:47 <ToesCrossedToo> bye Casey
09:47:51 <LindaGt> Casey, bye
09:47:56 <GO WEBCAM> wow the new cam view is AWESOME
09:47:58 <ChrisO> still seeing aftershocks from the 4.4 yesterday
09:47:59 <ynpvisitor6> Which can will it be?
09:48:02 <Kevin L™🌵> I will text when new cam comes up.
09:48:11 <Dave from B™> haha Graham
09:48:18 <GoldenStatium> Tidal bore cam: https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/fundy-tidal-interpretive-centre-south-maitland/
09:49:08 <ynpvisitor118> Depending on who wins the driver poker game, the first views may be dizzying.
09:49:11 <GO WEBCAM> does the tidal bore happen every high tide or is today special?
09:49:34 <Dave from B™> almost time for a lunch break for the crew
09:49:59 <ynpvisitor118> No lunch till the cam is working
09:50:10 <ChrisO> good luck with that
09:50:51 <LindaGt> Old faithful due soon
09:50:59 <GoldenStatium> Happens every high tide, but the higher the tide the bigger the bore wave
09:51:09 <GoldenStatium> Sometimes it's just foamy
09:51:40 <GO WEBCAM> so today should be a bigger bore than usual, so to speak?
09:51:55 <GoldenStatium> Hang on a sec
09:52:00 <Ryan> whats its eta
09:52:19 <LindaGt> 12:04
09:52:52 <Ryan> ah i have a static image right now
09:52:59 <LindaGt> So now we can all stare at static 😊
09:53:00 <GoldenStatium> today is just average. The biggest waves are new and full moons
09:54:49 <CraigC> hey Micah
09:54:56 <Micah-Packing> Good Morning.
09:55:16 <GO WEBCAM> don't pack too many rocks Micah
09:55:39 <Micah-Packing> No rocks but I'm packing four different backpacks.
09:56:04 <GoldenStatium> Tidal bore in Truro is a little before the cam; today it's 1643 ADT, so 1543 EDT and 1343 MDT
09:56:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Thought this would interest you Graham: http://operawire.com/utah-opera-commissioned-four-operas-for-150th-anniversary-of-golden-spike/
09:56:54 <Dave from B™> Micah, how many days will you have at YNP before you have to start working?
09:57:13 <Kevin L™🌵> They fired the Big Boy yesterday Craig. Still have some tickets for the ride out.
09:58:16 <Micah-Packing> Dave from B 0
09:58:32 <Micah-Packing> I arrive in Gardiner on the evening of the 17th and then officially start training on the 18th.
09:58:33 <Dave from B™> That's a low number!
09:58:46 <Ryan> im confused - when is it going?
09:59:21 <Dave from B™> Have a safe trip to the park. Hope to see you in May. I gotta leave right know. Ears are too high. Hope cam is up when I return.
09:59:41 <GO WEBCAM> good operas kevin, are you going?
10:00:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I really wanted to do the train. That isn't going to happen.
10:01:28 <Rice> Foam is getting too thick for me to be around the Big Boy. To many crazy railfans.
10:01:41 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, you mean ride in a car behind the Big Boy from Wyo to Utah?
10:02:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Best thing to do is find a good vantage spot early.
10:02:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Just see it but I would love to ride it.
10:03:22 <CraigC> I guess I'll probably end up surprised at how many people will be watching
10:03:58 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie static
10:04:02 <Kevin L™🌵> I had the ticket they gave the Governor to ride from Caliente to Las Vegas behind the 844 but my Daughter had to poor taste of being born that day.
10:04:16 <Rice> I made the mistake of joining the UP SteamClub Facebook page, oh my the crazy rail fans.
10:04:23 <CraigC> world superbike came to Utah 3 years in a row and hardly anyone went, but an old train comes.... :)
10:06:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I was there when the Challenger did the SLC to Provo runs. It was nuts back then. I can imagine what it will be now.
10:06:52 <CraigC> will the new cam image start by itself on our screens or will we need to refresh?
10:06:53 <Ryan> something that looks like a bore is coming up
10:07:22 <ynpvisitor118> Kevin, your daughter would have never remembered.
10:07:31 <CraigC> ynpvisitor118, hahaha
10:07:51 <Ryan> Tghe tidal bore is rolling through
10:07:54 <ynpvisitor118> refresh and still down.
10:08:18 <GoldenStatium> so much for my times
10:08:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Hope this helps. See you later
10:08:36 <ynpvisitor118> Did you pick a day?
10:08:36 <Micah-Packing> Anyone got a link for that bore cam?
10:08:40 <Ryan> thats really cool
10:08:40 <GoldenStatium> That's the bore
10:08:46 <Ryan> https://www.novascotiawebcams.com/en/webcams/fundy-tidal-interpretive-centre-south-maitland/
10:08:49 <Ryan> Not much today
10:09:26 <GoldenStatium> far shore wave
10:10:04 <Ryan> i saw the turnagin arm on in alaska in 2011. it was cool
10:10:08 <Micah-Packing> Getting distracted by those rocks on the near shore
10:10:59 <GoldenStatium> pretty good waves
10:11:33 <ynpvisitor118> We should start asking they put the static cam on the day lodge. Maybe in 5 years it will move.
10:12:18 <Katie> Here's one of the cams we serve bandwidth to over our wireless network: Dunrovin Ranch osprey nest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PPM0NbS_Ak&feature=youtu.be
10:12:57 <ToesCrossedToo> Nice Katie
10:13:44 <Katie> I check in on the long-eared owl nest that we serve bandwidth to, but looked like no one was home. https://explore.org/livecams/owl-research-institute/long-eared-owl-cam
10:13:46 <GoldenStatium> My one trip to Nova Scotia I tried to see it, but it was as low as it gets. You just become aware that the flow has reversed.
10:14:08 <ynpvisitor118> Now we want sound!
10:18:52 <ToesCrossedToo> Cool stuff Katie, thanks for sharing
10:20:18 <ynpvisitor118> Well my tolerance level has been depleted. Hope they get it working before I leave for the park in mid May.
10:20:59 <Micah-Packing> I'm sure they're doing their best. Snowy conditions probably don't make it any easier.
10:21:08 <Micah-Packing> Not to mention the Inn is all locked up and everything for the winter.
10:27:01 <ynpvisitor46> Trouble is with Century Link now. The router and switch have been moved. Waiting on troubleshooting with the company.
10:27:27 <Katie> Par for the course
10:27:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks 46.
10:27:34 <ynpvisitor46> The router is not in the OF Inn.
10:27:51 <Micah-Packing> They probably can't mount it there at the moment.
10:28:09 <Micah-Packing> I'm sure there's some sort of special permit needed by both the NPS and whoever runs historic sites.
10:28:13 <Eric> It's mounted in the VEC Micah
10:28:31 <Micah-Packing> Makes sense.
10:28:34 <Eric> Well, they mounted that camera up there without much fanfare
10:28:50 <Micah-Packing> True.
10:29:22 <Katie> That's ideal - it can be accessed if there is need when the Inn is closed.
10:30:02 <ynpvisitor46> Heading over now to troubleshoot with Mammoth folks on the phone.
10:30:12 <Katie> good luck!
10:30:15 <Eric> Good Luck 46!
10:30:18 <Eric> Thanks for the update
10:30:24 <Steph> May the force be with you!
10:31:31 <ynpvisitor6> Ha, unbelievable yet believable !
10:50:18 <ynpvisitor50> https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HWMHC-olItRLow6F6df0byxuoRphRcuy
10:50:23 <ynpvisitor50> new Giant data
10:51:20 <Eric> woot...you rock!
10:51:54 <Bill> the logger died mid Feb
10:55:09 <Eric> ohhh, bummer :-(
10:55:30 <ynpvisitor23> any eruptions we did not have?
10:55:38 <Eric> I would try to graph that data if I wasn't about to go into a meeting
10:56:02 <Eric> My computer would chug if I did it right now
10:56:11 <Bill> https://gyazo.com/9b89e2669fcd6691a696712f9c4c4c74
10:56:38 <Eric> Nice
10:56:48 <Eric> that should give a good estimate with the image
10:58:35 <ynpvisitor23> we are missing one eruption I think on GT
10:58:37 <ynpvisitor75> Eric can you just put up a video of lava erupting whenever the webcam is down?
10:58:53 <ynpvisitor23> too bad we will never know about the one on March 16
10:59:01 <ynpvisitor75> I think that will go over well
10:59:12 <Steph> It would be awesome!
10:59:47 <ynpvisitor23> so glad it barely snowed at OF
11:04:45 <ynpvisitor751> Shows 12/1 was good but not the one a day earlier
11:04:52 <Ben VL> Looks like 3 missed eruptions from the Giant data
11:06:10 <ynpvisitor88> Lunch should be over, they can plug in the cable now and make it look like they were working hard.
11:06:27 <Ben VL> I was looking at Transactions X, looks like Giant did actually have intervals shorter than 1d 19h 22m in the 50's
11:07:56 <ynpvisitor751> Those were the good old days....oh wait, SB was dormant, never mind.
11:08:20 <Ben VL> Yeah.
11:08:46 <Ben VL> I would rather SB being active than Giant on 2-day intervals
11:08:49 <Kevin L™🌵> But you could drive to F&M
11:09:30 <LindaG> Bbl
11:09:56 <Dave from B™> Thanks Bill
11:10:41 <ynpvisitor23> did you get the Morning logger data Bill?
11:14:14 <Dave from B™> I feel bad for the camera changeover crew
11:16:08 <ynpvisitor23> Well you would think they would have checked for a router in the Inn before going forward
11:16:20 <Joe> I'm kinda slow, reading the Giant csv file how do I tell an eruption on a certain date?
11:17:08 <Kevin L™🌵> The router is in the VEC and it works. It is the T1 line that is the issue.
11:17:27 <ynpvisitor23> I thought 46 said it was the router
11:17:38 <Rice> Look for spikes in temp, 3rd column
11:17:57 <Katie> 46 said it was a CenturyLink issue
11:18:35 <Kevin L™🌵> 46 said it is not at the Inn. It isn't supposed to t be at the Inn.
11:18:59 <ynpvisitor23> OK they said on a comment, the router is not at the Inn. Did not realize the context
11:19:35 <Kevin L™🌵> The cam is on the Inn and will transmit via radio signal to the VEC.
11:20:21 <Joe> Thanks i'll try to find 20 dec2018 @0752
11:20:30 <ynpvisitor23> I'm curious how a signal will work from that building to the Inn?
11:21:04 <ynpvisitor23> Maybe we will get to find out, I wonder if it will be days though
11:21:11 <Katie> 23 - not an issue (that's my line of professional work). Wireless radios can cover miles (10-20 miles)
11:21:31 <ynpvisitor23> good to know
11:23:11 <ynpvisitor46> Wireless is running...cam is not responding.
11:23:43 <ynpvisitor46> Will go over to the Inn after lunch to try to power down and up again.
11:24:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Go fix it Katie!
11:24:20 <ynpvisitor46> and I think that the cam is hard wired...I pulled the switch and plugged a cable.
11:24:28 <ynpvisitor46> Not Katie.
11:24:43 <ynpvisitor23> that's a chat joke 46
11:24:53 <ynpvisitor23> I hope it is fixable
11:24:54 <ynpvisitor46> ahhh. I'm slow sometimes.
11:25:05 <ynpvisitor46> Me too. I want the cam to be up and running.
11:25:05 <Dave from B™> 46, sorry it hasn't been easy
11:25:06 <ynpvisitor23> late lunch for you, thanks
11:27:04 <Katie> I can't do any better wrangling with CenturyLink thank 46 can. That is a challenging situation, and one I don't envy. I know the challenges, and know the pressure - I sympathize and empathize and wait patiently know people are doing the best they can under trying circumstances.
11:27:09 <ynpvisitor46> Wading through waist deep snow to move the router was the hard part. The rest now is up to the CSS guys in Mammoth.
11:27:24 <Katie> I was just saying that a wireless link between the camera to the router at the VEC isn't a problem.
11:27:36 <Kevin L™🌵> We do appreciate your efforts!
11:27:52 <Joe> Rice I see a jump in temperature one hour later than the webcam posted time on 20 dec 2018 at 0853 one hour after the webcam post is the logger on some other time than the GT database
11:27:53 <Katie> Yes, we do, 46. Thank you!
11:29:19 <Dave from B™> Just do use my fix if something isn't working (Use a bigger hammer)!:)
11:29:24 <Dave from B™> don't*
11:29:49 <ynpvisitor46> Router is at the ranger station...I wish it were here at the VEC.
11:30:03 <GO WEBCAM> logger might be on MDT
11:30:18 <ynpvisitor75> Just duct tape a phone up there and launch Periscope, done ;)
11:30:33 <ynpvisitor46> lol
11:30:57 <Micah-Packing> I can enter in Giant E times from Logger if everyone's ok with that. I have the file open on my computer.
11:31:08 <Micah-Packing> Feb 6 eruption occured at 1023 pm
11:31:13 <Micah-Packing> 2223 Military
11:31:22 <ynpvisitor75> How many eruptions did we miss?
11:31:23 <GO WEBCAM> NDT or MST?
11:31:27 <GO WEBCAM> MDT?
11:31:27 <Joe> thanks Graham, I now know what I'm looking for, I am really weak when it comes to databases
11:31:42 <Micah-Packing> Good question, standby.
11:31:47 <Micah-Packing> Let me cross reference with a webcam visual.
11:31:52 <Micah-Packing> I was just about to do that.
11:31:53 <Ben VL> Looks like 3
11:32:00 <GO WEBCAM> 2223 logger time would be 2123 MST
11:32:26 <Dave from B™> Pfew. I thought North Dakota had their own time zone for a second
11:32:56 <Joe> great that is what I found 0753 cam time is 0853 logger!
11:34:07 <Micah-Packing> Logger appears to be set in MST. GMT-6 right?
11:34:14 <GO WEBCAM> now Micah is going to be late leaving!
11:34:34 <GO WEBCAM> MST is GMT-7
11:34:37 <Micah-Packing> AH.
11:34:43 <Micah-Packing> Well that explains a little bit.
11:34:47 <GO WEBCAM> so its set to MDT
11:34:48 <Micah-Packing> I'll get on putting these guys in.
11:35:26 <Micah-Packing> I'll let other Giant authorities look at the hot period data.
11:35:39 <GO WEBCAM> and we need to check for false ones too ... Eric has one to delete 29 Nov
11:35:59 <Micah-Packing> I'll have a list to post here in a little bit.
11:36:06 <Eric> ohhh man!
11:36:23 <Eric> was it the following steam stack we saw?
11:37:11 <GO WEBCAM> 12/1 was the real deal
11:37:27 <GO WEBCAM> all you had to do was read my comment on it :)
11:37:31 <ynpvisitor75> I had a feeling there was at least one that looked kinda suspect but at the end of the day figured logger would set things straight ;)
11:37:59 <Joe> I found one that I posted 29 Jan 2019 @1443 as real, thanks all for your help :)
11:38:12 <Micah-Packing> Eruptions at 11/14, 11/21,
11:38:26 <Micah-Packing> 12/01
11:38:36 <Micah-Packing> 12/07
11:38:43 <Micah-Packing> 12/14
11:38:52 <Micah-Packing> 12/20
11:38:59 <Micah-Packing> 12/30
11:39:07 <Micah-Packing> 01/12
11:39:13 <Micah-Packing> 01/20
11:39:22 <Micah-Packing> 01/29 that joe mentioned
11:39:28 <Rice> 2/6
11:39:29 <Micah-Packing> 02/06
11:39:32 <Micah-Packing> Then the logger failed.
11:39:35 <Micah-Packing> But not bad.
11:39:42 <Micah-Packing> I'll be entering those asap
11:39:47 <Micah-Packing> When I get an opening.
11:40:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks Micah
11:40:12 <Eric> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vSO7xD_MAR3REiVEmxLp3kvg7ybZuTr88xFjy0PCl1w5MNKRvoS2lCit1XDgCGug9ZORUBlen56G7bP/pubchart?oid=957080232&format=interactive
11:40:16 <Joe> thanks Micah
11:40:18 <Eric> Giant interactive chart
11:40:56 <Joe> You Guys can teach old dogs new things :):)
11:41:42 <ynpvisitor75> So missed a couple then
11:42:03 <ynpvisitor75> Also 1/10 is wrong then?
11:42:06 <ynpvisitor75> 1/12 instead
11:42:43 <GO WEBCAM> so 1/10 was wrong also
11:42:49 <Rice> amazing how we have kept a chat going all day, with no web cam!
11:43:23 <GO WEBCAM> comment says it was still gojng well after Giant should have ended, probably Grotto
11:43:50 <Eric> did I already get flagged to death :-P
11:44:54 <Rice> Bill did youget the logger working again for Giant?
11:45:04 <Eric> Nevermind...I found and deleted it
11:45:20 <Eric> Someone going to enter those E times?
11:45:58 <ynpvisitor...> Just saw reports from VC. Thank you.
11:46:32 <Eric> OF visitors on static
11:46:39 <Eric> employees already at UGB?
11:46:56 <ynpvisitor...> Fluff 1345 static but I was not paying attention
11:47:06 <ynpvisitor...> ie
11:47:10 <Bill> Sorry, busy with interviews. I got the broken logger to download
11:48:18 <Bill> There's a new bluetooth logger on it now
11:49:07 <Joe> I'll delete my 01/10 1821 giant
11:50:04 <Micah-Packing> Eric I'm entering them, sorry, got distracted.
11:50:40 <Kevin L™🌵> I bet those things take a beating.
11:50:42 <Joe> no quit
11:51:20 <Micah-Packing> Kevin, can confirm.
11:51:21 <CraigC> Tantalus?
11:51:29 <Micah-Packing> My loggers at Mickey got the crap beat out of them.
11:52:49 <Eric> Google interactive chart is sucking it on my browser :-(
11:58:28 <Kevin L™🌵> That Nova Scotia river is full now.
11:59:01 <Eric> FYI...cam is still down
11:59:34 <Eric> 3.5 hours in....
12:00:08 <Eric> When I said it would go smooth today...I this I might have been wrong.
12:00:32 <Micah-Packing> lol.
12:01:08 <Dave from B™> You mean I got a prediction right?
12:01:16 <Dave from B™> I'm batting .050
12:01:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I do get half pay for stand by.
12:01:26 <Eric> think...not this
12:02:09 <Eric> But linda did frame up the still image nicely :-D
12:02:26 <Eric> Alright...grabbing some lunch, txt if the cam comes back on
12:02:41 <LindaG> Gee thanks. 😊
12:04:36 <Joe> Kevin I was told they are paying triple time to camops today
12:06:16 <Dave from B™> Kavin salary is like one of those math problems on FB...
12:06:53 <Dave from B™> Salary = 1-1+2-2+0*1,000,000+2-2
12:07:54 <Kevin L™🌵> https://eventhorizons.wordpress.com/2008/04/09/dont-piss-off-an-engineer/
12:08:07 <CraigC> is the answer 'yellow'?
12:08:09 <ynpvisitor100> IT people need to be half good a table tennis.
12:08:27 <ynpvisitor100> If you can ping the router the T1 is working
12:08:51 <ynpvisitor100> Next you check to see if the router is seeing the first antenna.
12:08:56 <Dave from B™> haha Craig
12:09:01 <Kevin L™🌵> But if it pongs it isn't?
12:09:18 <Micah-Packing> Alright. Giant Entries are entered
12:09:18 <ynpvisitor100> Then you check to see if the antenna has traffic or signal from the other antenna.
12:09:53 <Dave from B™> Thanks Micah
12:10:12 <Dave from B™> Kevin, did bank accept that check?
12:10:17 <ynpvisitor100> I bet it is an ip address problem and the router is looking for the cam at the old IP address and the antennas are in the way.
12:10:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't know Dave but I like it.
12:12:30 <ynpvisitor100> What I am interested in knowing is... Will we know when a helicopter lands at the ranger station because it blocks the antenna?
12:13:18 <ynpvisitor999®> how useless
12:13:49 <ynpvisitor100> Sorry if you spent your time in arcades playing pong, that experience will not help with networks.
12:15:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I see Bill has uploaded logger data. Yay!
12:15:38 <ynpvisitor46> Final webcam verdict...someone has to come down and plug a computer into the webcam to reprogram it.
12:15:44 <Dave from B™> The pong sound was hypnotizing
12:16:19 <ynpvisitor46> So until they can get here from Mammoth the webcam will remain black.
12:16:28 <ynpvisitor999®> :/
12:16:29 <ynpvisitor46> Bill is great that way.
12:16:33 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the update. I hope it is soon
12:16:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks for the info, 46
12:16:45 <ynpvisitor46> I'll let you know as soon as I find out.
12:16:56 <ynpvisitor46> I tried to get him to come down here tomorrow
12:16:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess I get the rest of the day off.
12:17:12 <ynpvisitor46> Maybe.
12:17:30 <ynpvisitor46> you could watch the static cam and get OF's lol.
12:17:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill, if you're here, how was Norris?
12:18:10 <ynpvisitor46> :p have to work now...
12:18:13 <ynpvisitor100> They never listen when we say you need an IT person on site when doing cut overs of network stuff.
12:18:20 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess static cams are better than nothing, 46. By the way - if there's some time left - could you maybe try to fix the static cam's time in the upper-left corner?
12:18:44 <ynpvisitor100> over and out.
12:18:53 <ynpvisitor46> I don't have access to that. All I can change is the OF prediction.
12:19:08 <ynpvisitor999®> hm - thanks anyway
12:19:24 <ynpvisitor46> Chau chau
12:26:43 <Dave from B™> New item in our market today...insulated cooler bag with our logo
12:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder if they would let me take that into the races.
12:28:08 <Dave from B™> Only 1 way to find out:)
12:30:05 <ChrisO> piss poor planning leads to piss poor perfomance
12:30:11 <ChrisO> be back later
12:35:11 <ynpvisitor23> reprogram the web cam...let's hope that works, and that someone comes before next week
12:37:23 <ynpvisitor80> Darn so were out for a few days?
12:37:31 <ynpvisitor23> Graham's 2/6 Giant post also now makes no sense. He should delete it and have Micah's be primary
12:37:50 <ynpvisitor23> we have no idea really 80, depends on Mammoth
12:38:30 <Dave from B™> 23, staff will more than likely give us an update tpmorrow on the time frame
12:39:02 <ynpvisitor23> right now we have no idea
12:39:53 <ynpvisitor23> sure wish the logger on Giant would have worked through March
12:40:43 <Micah-Packing> It's looking like the March 16 eruption was the last one anyways.
12:40:54 <ynpvisitor23> how is that Micah?
12:41:04 <ynpvisitor23> and we do not even know if that happened, very short interval
12:41:17 <Micah-Packing> We've had experienced folks venture in basin to look at the platform. And by experienced I mean 20+ years of watching Giant.
12:41:43 <ynpvisitor23> I'm guessing March 16 did not happen
12:41:52 <ynpvisitor23> and yes, I remember now that Andrew was there
12:42:02 <ynpvisitor23> yet he reported that quite a while ago
12:43:14 <ynpvisitor103> Well the results of the pool are in for when the cam will be moved. Good news and bad news.
12:43:42 <ynpvisitor103> The winning choice was "not today" at even money.
12:44:05 <ynpvisitor103> No one selected that option, so the house gets to keep all the bets.
12:44:25 <Dave from B™> hey hey hey...did you lose my wager?
12:44:41 <ynpvisitor103> Thank you, and we can not wait for the opportunity to serve your needs next time.
12:45:32 <ynpvisitor103> Who would bet 1 for 1 odds? You taxes would make it a loosing bet.
12:45:58 <Dave from B™> I always bet on the favorite
12:46:38 <Eric> Dang...who in their right mind doesn't take the opportunity to travel to a geyser basin when they get the option :-P
12:46:56 <ynpvisitor103> As soon as I receive your post dated check, I will pay off the bet.
12:47:36 <Dave from B™> Here's my check
12:47:38 <Dave from B™> https://eventhorizons.wordpress.com/2008/04/09/dont-piss-off-an-engineer/
12:47:44 <Eric> My IT hiring application @ YNP: When asked to be on location for an IT project, do you:
12:47:56 <ynpvisitor103> Eric, I refrain from answering that.
12:48:08 <Eric> A) Check GT to coordinate your Route with possible geyser eruptions?
12:48:28 <Eric> B) Verify your destination is in a Geyser Basin?
12:48:47 <Eric> or C) Stay where you are at because you don't care about geysers.
12:49:18 <Eric> One of these is a no-hire for sure :-P
12:49:33 <ChrisO> D) When doing a valuable service to people who help pay your salary, go to the site regardless
12:49:55 <Eric> Meh, they might have had other projects that were just as valuable or as important
12:50:00 <Eric> We don't know
12:50:09 <Micah-Packing> ^
12:50:17 <Micah-Packing> Let's just be patient with them folks.
12:50:58 <Eric> I must say, I really, really like "If I ran the Zoo" from Dr. Suess :-P
12:51:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Big problem is distance, staffing, and Priority. Normal business issues will outweigh webcams.
12:51:41 <Eric> I thought it was the IT guy not being there :-P
12:51:42 <ChrisO> my giant football balloon i had left over from a superbowl party finally died last night
12:51:46 <ynpvisitor23> and they don't work weekends, so hopefully it will get done before then
12:52:22 <ynpvisitor23> just too bad we cannot switch back to old cam, like with the other SNAFUs
12:52:55 <ChrisO> well, since we dont have a cam to watch, might as well watch the seismos.
12:53:01 <Eric> Yep, I think 46 already trudged through the snow one to grab the router today...not likely to trudge back.
12:53:06 <Eric> once
12:53:20 <ynpvisitor103> I do not buy any argument. They have known about this for a long time, and had 2 previous chances to mess it up. You would think any intelligent person would have done anything possible to not mess it up the third time.
12:53:40 <ynpvisitor103> But we are talking about government people.
12:53:53 <ChrisO> lol, i wasnt going to go there
12:54:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I had times at NDOT that it took a person 8 hours of driving to get a 30 minute job done. Travel time in the park is also a killer.
12:54:20 <Eric> Multiple parties involved here...no need to talk smack about people.
12:54:33 <Eric> They are doing what they can with what they got
12:54:43 <Steph> Even in the private sector stuff always takes a while to set up and work out all the bugs.
12:54:46 <ynpvisitor23> don't have to worry about travel time this time of year
12:54:48 <ChrisO> they should have had the network in place before the move...and that is all i will say on it
12:55:15 <ynpvisitor32> So, no Nov 29 giant eruption?
12:55:25 <ynpvisitor103> Multiple parties sounds like a frat boy excuse.
12:55:27 <Eric> Nope...I nuked my entry 32 :-(
12:55:36 <Eric> Sad
12:55:46 <ynpvisitor32> Sad. I was hoping we'd be surprised by that actually being true.
12:55:47 <ChrisO> so where the "doggie" name for bison come from?
12:55:50 <ynpvisitor23> reality is harsh sometimes
12:55:54 <Eric> Me too
12:56:11 <ynpvisitor103> same place as cows?
12:56:12 <Eric> I think that is Kevin's fault Chris
12:56:18 <ynpvisitor32> At least the logger survived long enough to clear that up
12:56:32 <Eric> Yep...I hoped it would
12:56:35 <ynpvisitor103> they are all bovines.
12:56:46 <Eric> Glad it was there to "see" for us
12:56:54 <ChrisO> the only reference i could find was "red dogs" for baby bison
12:57:47 <ynpvisitor103> They did have the bison ranch, I am sure it came from the wranglers the hired.
12:58:24 <ynpvisitor103> they
12:59:49 <Eric> Got all the parts for my backcountry bear bag today
13:00:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I am the one that first used it here. Inspired by this ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEgxQ9iWmp8
13:00:05 <Eric> smell/water proof hang bag
13:02:02 <Eric> Hopefully tomorrow morning this will get resolved
13:02:36 <Dave from B™> We will ALL Survive no matter how long it takes
13:03:00 <Dave from B™> Some of you need to read Micah's letter in the new sput
13:06:27 <LindaG> I do feel bad about not talking to lc, so if anyone sees him on here, please let me know
13:07:30 <GO WEBCAM> so its 12 9 8 2 - although 5-Grands may have 9 also if it went before midnight
13:08:32 <GO WEBCAM> also 29 Giants for last year
13:08:48 <Dave from B™> Linda, did you get the lc's confused?
13:09:06 <LindaG> Yes, lol
13:09:23 <Eric> Speak for yourself Dave, I might not survive!
13:09:57 <LindaG> He wanted to ask me a question and I didnt know who it was.
13:10:05 <Dave from B™> That is why the geyser is LC and the fantastic geyser guru is lc:)
13:10:40 <Dave from B™> He's usually on in the morning as a number. You can apologize then:)
13:10:51 <LindaG> Ok
13:11:39 <Joe> Graham, Based on the turbine and Vent that I saw shortly after midnight I can safely say that grand did erupt before midnight
13:12:01 <Joe> Turban*
13:12:05 <GO WEBCAM> ok, thanks Joe, I will count it
13:12:14 <Eric> ok...so BW or Webcam fixed first?
13:12:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably
13:12:41 <Eric> Note...these guys are working amazingly fast on the BW!
13:17:27 <GO WEBCAM> do cam ops get furlough pay with the cam down?
13:18:32 <Katie> Of course. Standard pay. :)
13:18:45 <Eric2> Double pay!
13:18:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Half pay
13:19:10 <Kevin L™🌵> And we are all right!
13:19:11 <Eric2> I will supplement with 3x bonuses!
13:19:14 <Katie> No, not double. Actually, no pay. We are paid in satisfaction. No satisfaction now.
13:20:11 <Joe> If IT in Mammoth knows the IP address of the new camera and they already have the software installed on their computers they can just connect to the camera on their Network, change the IP address to the old address and do whatever programming they need to do on the network and have it going
13:20:26 <GO WEBCAM> who are you working for Katie?
13:22:20 <Eric2> My guess is the webcam was setup with a static IP and there is some issue with it connecting to the Router/Modem over the wireless. But that is just total conjecture.
13:22:32 <Katie> Well, IF we have a cam, tomorrow morning I'll be working for satisfaction operating it. :)
13:24:07 <Joe> I"ll be getting satisfaction watching it, right now "I can"t get no satisfaction"
13:24:22 <Eric> Katie, Katie, whats your function, hookin up cams and makin'em function :-P In the toon of schoolhouse rock.
13:25:03 <Katie> ha ha. Nope. That's above my pay grade.
13:25:54 <Eric> Well, maybe not here...but your other cams are impressive
13:26:10 <Eric> I like the osprey one a lot!
13:27:16 <Katie> We just serve up the bandwidth. But for that osprey one, we had to get creative. That line of cottonwoods obstructs line of site to our closes access point. Their radio is on a pole on the other side of those trees.
13:29:08 <Katie> Cat6 underground burial cable, in a conduit, is buried a few inches underground, going to a shop where there is a power over ethernet injector, then to a wireless router. Our responsibility ends there. I don't even know if the camera link to the router is wired or wireless. They actually have 4 streaming cameras.
13:30:31 <ynpvisitor21> Fluffy ie :)
13:30:44 <LindaG> Wow big
13:30:47 <Katie> The long-eared owl one has a big solar panel charging a bank of deep cell batteries in a big metal box. The switch, router and whatnot is also in that box. Radio is mounted to the trailer the box sits upon. 2 wired cameras there. Cable in conduit across a ditch and into the willows where the owls hang out.
13:32:53 <Katie> BTW, I went out for "lunch" and was so hoping for a "new cam up" text while I was away.
13:33:38 <Dave from B™> Eric, how will we now the bw people are done without a cam?
13:34:11 <Katie> If the project is complete when the cam comes up, we'll have the answer.
13:34:51 <LindaG> I dont see anything from bee
13:35:33 <Joe> Keep watching :)
13:35:59 <GO WEBCAM> so we are going with 12 9 9 2 for the counts
13:36:23 <Joe> Great!
13:38:01 <ynpvisitor...> So we have no idea where we are right now?
13:38:25 <ynpvisitor...> Just "something not working"?
13:38:54 <GO WEBCAM> i hope you know where you are
13:39:07 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks :)
13:39:39 <Dave from B™> Kent, cam will be done until IT guy comes from Mammoth. We don't know when then it is. We're hoping and praying it is this week.
13:39:53 <Dave from B™> down*
13:40:16 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks Dave
13:40:25 <Dave from B™> yw
13:40:55 <GO WEBCAM> i keep trying to steer the static cam but its not working
13:41:34 <ynpvisitor...> I try to steer West Entrance on occasion
13:42:05 <GO WEBCAM> trying to move the other cars out of the way?
13:42:38 <ynpvisitor...> Mostly trying to zoom
13:42:46 <Dave from B™> Time to get out of here and watch some hockey. Have a great evening everyone!
13:43:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
13:43:26 <Dave from B™> Happy Isles to you
13:44:19 <GO WEBCAM> GO ISLES
13:44:33 <Eric> Night Dave
13:46:17 <Steph> Bye guys! See you tomorrow with fingers and toes crossed!
13:55:18 <Bill> OK, I'm back for the evening.
13:55:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you know how to reprogram a camera?
13:56:06 <Bill> /reprogram_camera
13:56:12 <Bill> Nope
13:56:26 <ynpvisitor999®> How was Norris?
13:56:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Well it was worth a try
13:56:33 <Bill> I can send Rebecca Roland a message
13:56:44 <Bill> I didn't go out today. Not great weather
13:57:15 <ynpvisitor999®> oh well, next time better
13:57:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I think she had to send one to IT in Mammoth.
13:57:28 <ynpvisitor...> Tell Rebecca to tap static cam slightly to the left :)
13:58:02 <GO WEBCAM> I think you mean "Ask Rebecca" and Please.
13:58:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam switchover didn't go well. We are blind now.
14:12:17 <Eric> I bet maintenance was at norris today
14:12:31 <Eric> Someone was bouncing up and down on the seismo all day
14:25:29 <LindaG> Solitary
14:48:53 <Eric> BH
14:48:56 <Eric> I think
14:49:56 <LindaG> Really I've been watching
14:50:06 <Eric> Looks like the static camera got bumped to the right slightly
14:50:17 <Eric> Maybe it's lion
14:50:22 <Eric> something is going over there
14:53:22 <LindaG> I wonder if that's aurum
14:53:53 <LindaG> Good chance it is
14:54:06 <LindaG> Gone
14:55:24 <Eric> Well, it wasn't BH...not sure what I saw
14:56:09 <LindaG> Geyser ghosts 😊
15:00:16 <ChrisO> anyone seen any doggies on the static?
15:04:40 <LindaG> Inthink may lion nowneric
15:06:22 <LindaG> * i think lion maybe Eric, but gone now
15:10:01 <GO WEBCAM> of
15:10:05 <LindaG> OF
15:14:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I figured you might be GO BLUEJACKETS toKnight.
15:40:09 <ynpvisitor48> Those workers are stacking up the overtime today.
15:40:34 <Katie> Indeed. Except they aren't getting much done... ;)
15:40:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I think they want it done by Memorial Day.
15:41:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Going faster than last year.
15:41:45 <ynpvisitor48> They are decoys. Meanwhile at the real work sight....
15:43:05 <ynpvisitor48> Any good news today?
15:43:37 <ynpvisitor999®> they've isolated the webcam issue
15:44:01 <ynpvisitor999®> so now it should^tm be fixable by means of an IT guy
15:44:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Should have it working by Labor Day.
15:44:24 <ynpvisitor102> Now now
15:44:33 <ynpvisitor48> I read enough, they admit the problem is between their ears?
15:44:56 <Katie> I was kidding about not moving much - frozen view and all. They have been working hard and fast.
15:45:45 <ynpvisitor48> I just wonder if the new boards have shown up yet? At the rate they tore them up Tuesday, they will need them soon.
15:45:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the biggest problem is distance and not a lot of staff.
15:46:41 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way - in the 1993 OFVCL-EV logs, I read there was a pause of ~2m between two Grand bursts. Would that second burst count as an afterburst or just be treated as burst from an 'extended pause'? Grand code in the log is D3/G2C, duration 12m04s
15:47:46 <ynpvisitor48> I don't do grand codes, but would think 2 min is a second.
15:47:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I think that would be extended pause. As I understand it an afterburst comes after a drain.
15:48:20 <ynpvisitor999®> okay, thanks
15:48:54 <ynpvisitor48> Well, we call lots of seconds and have no way to see the pool.
15:49:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Those are fun since nobody expects them.
15:49:44 <ynpvisitor999®> On that same day (May 16, 1993), Grand had apparantly a 5-foot false start
15:49:45 <ynpvisitor48> A second, after a drain, or a pause?
15:49:49 <Kevin L™🌵> The one he has is from a Visitor Center log 48
15:50:08 <ynpvisitor999®> http://www.geyserstudy.org/ofvclogs/log1993.txt
15:50:23 <ynpvisitor999®> publicly accesible, may as well throw it in here
15:50:29 <Micah-Packing> ynpvisitor999 I've seen a couple of those. It's taught me never to call grand until it actually starts jetting.
15:50:55 <Micah-Packing> True shame is calling Grand and then having to redact it lol.
15:51:07 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting - thought until now that was a one-off
15:51:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand is a great fooler.
15:51:31 <Micah-Packing> Nope. It can still trick you.
15:51:36 <Micah-Packing> It's definitely uncommon, but it can happen.
15:51:55 <ynpvisitor48> A 5 foot mini followed by a second.
15:52:31 <Kevin L™🌵> My favorite was a 4b followed by an afterburst.
15:52:56 <Micah-Packing> David Schwartz has an 11 burst on Youtube with an Afterburst too I believe.
15:53:06 <Micah-Packing> That would be wild.
15:53:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I recall it was a 10+1
15:53:20 <Micah-Packing> But with the intervals these days.....3 is all I hope for.
15:53:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I am happy with 2
15:53:43 <ynpvisitor48> And Dave can not get a one burst boat.
15:54:03 <Kevin L™🌵> But I love the short wait. those 7 to 12 hour intervals were not fun.
15:54:10 <ynpvisitor999®> 1993 was apparantly also the year when they started with electronic logging, but also the year where it seems they took the IR rig down
15:54:52 <ynpvisitor48> Well, enjoy the circle. I am not holding my breath.
15:54:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Some Opal Pool action happened that year too
16:05:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off, have fun watching a white X
16:06:06 <Micah-Packing> Goodnight, J

16:07:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
16:07:38 <Micah-Packing> Does anyone else think this feature in Oregon screams "I might erupt" ?
16:07:49 <Micah-Packing> I've been collecting photos of it for years.
16:08:53 <Kevin L™🌵> It looks like it wants to.
16:09:13 <Micah-Packing> It's located at Borax Hot Springs, South of Mickey Hot Springs.
16:09:26 <Micah-Packing> I never did get around to going there, but there has been confirmed geyser activity there in the past.
16:09:34 <Micah-Packing> Not that specific spring though.
16:09:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I used to drive by a pretty good hot spring just east of Tonopah on US6 at the north end of the ET Highway.
16:11:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is a location: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.1890009,-116.3724561,788m/data=!3m1!1e3
16:12:39 <Micah-Packing> Ah yes, I have that one down in my archives.
16:12:54 <Micah-Packing> Not sure if it would have any geyser activity, but it is curious.
16:13:17 <Micah-Packing> There's a couple locals in Nevada I suspect can still support small geysers, but they're either protected by private property, or way out in the wilderness.
16:13:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I know the water crossing US 6 can be downright hot.
16:13:40 <Micah-Packing> It's a shame we'll never again see life from the dead husks of Steamboat Springs and Beowawe
16:14:35 <Micah-Packing> https://www.flickr.com/photos/92353756@N02/15680261079/in/faves-92780651@N04/
16:14:42 <Micah-Packing> Her's a nice shot I saved of Opal Pool erupting.
16:15:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes, that really ticks me off. Have you seen the Nevada Map cover with the Steamboat Springs Geyser on it?
16:15:17 <Micah-Packing> I haven't.
16:15:33 <Micah-Packing> I do have the full Dr. White Color report on Beowawe though and man that's depressing.
16:15:44 <Micah-Packing> Those geysers, while only modest in size, looked super fun.
16:15:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. Great OP shot!
16:16:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Let me find the link. BTW Suzanne and Paul used to spend some time there before they totally killed the geysers.
16:16:43 <Micah-Packing> Yup.
16:16:45 <Micah-Packing> And Heinrich.
16:17:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Here it is: https://www.nevadadot.com/home/showdocument?id=1223
16:18:21 <Micah-Packing> That's gotta be 40W erupting in that shot.
16:30:08 <ChrisO> since there is only a few of us here tonight, gonna have some fun
16:32:28 <LindaG> This place sure did empty out
16:32:47 <ChrisO> yea, people are bummed that the cam wont be back tonight
16:32:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Not much you can do at this point.
16:33:06 <ChrisO> i can kick it again :)
16:33:23 <Kevin L™🌵> At least it didn't get hit by lightning.
16:33:44 <LindaG> Just gotta go with the flow
16:33:49 <ChrisO> was watching a lightning video earlier where somewhere out near Grand got hit
16:34:34 <Kevin L™🌵> The tree got hit and killed an earlier cam. Down 6 weeks.
16:34:55 <LindaG> Wow 6 weeks !
16:35:06 <ChrisO> wow
16:35:09 <LindaG> What would we do!
16:35:40 <ChrisO> well in 9 days you would drive out there :)
16:36:42 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the strike about 30 seconds before the one that hit the cam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmqLh93SNB0
16:37:30 <ChrisO> yea thats the one
16:37:41 <ChrisO> i am still learning the geysers sorry
16:37:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I was driving when that ne happened.
16:37:59 <LindaG> Yikes!
16:38:37 <Micah-Packing> That lightning strike also pulverized the split cone logger that was there, if I recall
16:38:59 <LindaG> SC looked wounded
16:39:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it did
16:39:32 <Micah-Packing> Nice reminder that lightning can hit real close to OF.
16:39:54 <Micah-Packing> There are rangers at OF that remember when lightning hit a bench back in 2006.
16:40:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the VEC uses a still from that to show what can happen.
16:40:19 <ChrisO> copper infusion a few 100 feet down?
16:40:28 <Micah-Packing> Blew everyone off the bench and rendered a child dead for a couple minutes before he was resuscitated.
16:41:37 <Micah-Packing> I remember lightning striking the ridgeline across the highway while watching Steamboat's Steamphase back in 2013.
16:42:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I was down by Artemesia when one of those small but intense cell came by. Our hair would stand on end and we would get the flash and bang at the same time.
16:42:43 <Micah-Packing> Yikes.
16:43:06 <Micah-Packing> I've always heard if you're hair is standing on end, you should hit the deck immediately because it's either striking you or somewhere too close.
16:43:11 <Kevin L™🌵> It was terrifying. We hid down at the base of the wall.
16:44:04 <Micah-Packing> I remember hauling back from Fan and Mortar escaping a monster storm that came barreling over the mirror plateau.
16:44:24 <Micah-Packing> Lightning 360 degrees as I pedaled like a bat outta hell.
16:44:37 <Micah-Packing> Would not like to do that again.
16:44:57 <Kevin L™🌵> It is not fun and there is nowhere to hide.
16:46:33 <ynpvisitor34> Theres always the pit
16:47:15 <CraigC> where is the pit?
16:47:24 <Micah-Packing> By Riverside now.
16:47:29 <Kevin L™🌵> By Riverside now
16:47:33 <Micah-Packing> Jinx.
16:47:55 <Kevin L™🌵> That was too far away from us anyway.
16:48:14 <ynpvisitor51> Of yet?
16:48:15 <CraigC> oh, the outhouse LOL
16:48:25 <ynpvisitor51> Or am I still good?
16:48:30 <Micah-Packing> ynpvisitor51 Cam's still out.
16:48:37 <ynpvisitor34> Closer than biking up to of
16:48:45 <Sam> Hi everyone btw
16:49:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi. Changeover didn't go as planned.
16:49:33 <Sam> Oh shoot. Oh well.
16:49:33 <CraigC> hey Sam
16:50:53 <CraigC> Kevin, you probably know where Deseret Land is above Lost Creek? We were fishing up there on their private ponds when a sudden snow storm came in really fast. We were holding graphite rods, and we could send electrical arcs at each other about 1/4 inch away
16:51:56 <Sam> 4 potential 1hr40min intervals for OF. I don’t remember the last time that’s happened
16:53:47 <Kevin L™🌵> It looks like OF went at the 1840 static shot but I know that isn't the real time.
16:54:06 <Sam> It’s 3 minutes ahead I think?
16:54:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep
16:55:19 <LindaG> I was wondering if I missed it
16:55:36 <Kevin L™🌵> You do know that you can review the static shots by holding CTRL and moving the wheel on your mouse.
16:55:51 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a pretty shot
16:56:13 <LindaG> Not on my tablet
16:57:12 <LindaG> Or at least I havent figured out how
16:57:50 <Kevin L™🌵> There is probably a way. Ask a 1st grade kid to show you.
16:58:03 <CraigC> LOL
16:58:22 <LindaG> 😋
16:58:28 <Kevin L™🌵> iPad instruction book: "We know how it works so you should too!"
17:06:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Micah, here is another good hot spring but it does take a bit of hiking: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3310434,-112.9562603,221m/data=!3m1!1e3
17:10:39 <Micah-Packing> Kevin interesting! Thanks.
17:10:45 <Micah-Packing> Not sure if there's actually surface features there.
17:10:52 <Micah-Packing> Have you been?
17:16:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I went a LONG time ago. It is an incredible hike and those hot springs felt great.
17:21:11 <Kevin L™🌵> There is a spot there that is about 50' wide and 2000' high.
19:16:34 <ynpvisitor106> Why did the camera stop and the forecast stopped?
19:22:13 <ynpvisitor3> What?
19:28:33 <ChrisO> camera is in the process of being moved, still down due to network issues
