03:52:40 <Joe> "Dark Shadows"
03:52:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> OG window opens at 0615 so you have some time to roam :)
03:53:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF
03:53:17 <LindaGt> U missed dome
03:54:23 <Joe> It will have to be another camop now
03:55:45 <LindaGt> I can take for about 30 min

03:58:36 <Joe> I must now hit the Yellow Brick Road, a wizard will be waiting for me and he is miles away. see you all later
03:58:39 <LindaGt> Assuming this is ok till OF window
04:00:02 <CraigC> hi and bye Joe
04:00:08 <CraigC> hey Linda
04:00:15 <ynpvisitor74> Bye
04:00:35 <ynpvisitor74> Hi craig
04:00:45 <ynpvisitor74> Lx
04:00:48 <ynpvisitor74> Lc
04:00:56 <CraigC> hey 74
04:01:18 <LindaG> Lion maybe
04:02:18 <LindaG> Just a roar
04:02:49 <ynpvisitor82> Daisy is up soon
04:03:01 <LindaG> Ok I have cam till OF
04:03:10 <CraigC> dang, I have been up and online, I wish I had signed in earlier, I have never seen Dome
04:03:40 <LindaG> Good thing is it will be back I about half hour
04:04:04 <CraigC> Dome will erupt again in half hour?
04:04:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> could be under 20m intervals if it just started
04:04:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> then it will slowly get longer intervals through the day
04:04:27 <LindaG> Ok
04:04:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> usually 40m to an hour the second day
04:05:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats why i keep logging them as its interesting to see them lengthen
04:05:38 <LindaG> 👍
04:06:51 <LindaG> I'll switch to OF when it's in window and then I've got to go. So then kat will be here by 7:00
04:06:59 <CraigC> ok, just read TSB's description on Dome
04:07:19 <LindaG> Here goes craig
04:07:30 <LindaG> It's starting
04:10:15 <CraigC> so you don't label the first one as "ini"?
04:10:30 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, dome looks real nice on this cam
04:11:37 <LindaG> CraigC, oh I don't know. But I also don't know if it's the first one
04:12:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes it does :)
04:12:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> the first eruption has a lot of water and lasts longer, but we usually dont catch it
04:12:42 <BWaggs> Morning
04:12:47 <LindaG> Lion maybe
04:12:56 <LindaG> BWaggs, hi
04:12:58 <CraigC> hey BW
04:13:03 <LindaG> Nope
04:13:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> i saw one start last year from the hill, but of course the trail was closed so I couldnt get close
04:13:22 <CraigC> hey Chris
04:13:30 <ChrisO> Morning :)
04:13:51 <LindaG> Gotta move to OF soon
04:13:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> the others in series dont put a lot of water out but they are fun to see close up and you hear all the noises of the splashig in the dome too
04:14:31 <LindaG> Cool. So if you catch first one do you mark ini?
04:15:20 <LindaG> I'm going to play safe and go to OF
04:15:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes Linda, firt one gets the ini if we know its the ini
04:16:21 <LindaG> Sorry. Ill leave cam here. Ive got to go out.
04:16:23 <CraigC> can you pan it to catch OF and Dome?
04:16:40 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, ok
04:17:19 <CraigC> sweet
04:17:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> extra wide view might see OF and Dome
04:17:36 <CraigC> that covers it
04:18:00 <LindaG> Is it ok to leave like this, I'm siging off
04:18:02 <CraigC> thanks, Linda
04:20:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks good Linda
04:20:51 <LindaGt> 👍
04:21:13 <LindaGt> I'm off cam
04:21:25 <CraigC> OF
04:21:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> btw - I am not watching the streaming cam while working, it doesn't run on the VPN
04:30:07 <CraigC> thanks, Joe, I deleted my OF entry
04:32:51 <Joe> I was just leaving and did not see yours, do you want to post? I'll delete mine
04:33:09 <CraigC> is Dome erupting now? I don't know what you look for to tell it is not just steam
04:33:14 <LindaGt> Dome
04:33:38 <Joe> Yes Craig You will have to post that one
04:33:43 <CraigC> Joe, yours was more accurate, I was a minute late on mine
04:34:19 <Joe> OK, Bye now for sure :)

04:36:34 <LindaGt> And there she is
04:36:41 <Kat> I do
04:36:57 <CraigC> cool, viewing here is more enjoyable when the driver is also here in the dashboard
04:37:11 <Kat> Were you on LInda? Sorry I signed in alittle early
04:38:05 <LindaGt> No I was off. Joe had to leave so I took for short time. Enjoy I'm leaving g soon
04:38:32 <Kat> Another snowy morning. :(
04:38:44 <LindaGt> Glad u signed on early, things are happening 😊
04:39:15 <CraigC> Kat, Dome is in active phase
04:39:54 <Kat> What is the interval?
04:40:27 <LindaGt> I think daisy is in the window
04:40:36 <CraigC> I read 20-30 mins.... this is first time I have seen it
04:40:59 <Kat> Sprinkler
04:41:20 <LindaGt> So many geysers not enough cameras hehe
04:41:46 <CraigC> How well were you able to see Dome on last cam?
04:42:28 <Kat> Is the best preset for Dome -Giantess or Aurum?
04:43:01 <LindaGt> Imthink giantess
04:43:17 <CraigC> is that Daisy?
04:43:34 <Kat> I think so
04:43:41 <CraigC> or is that in front of the trees?
04:44:00 <CraigC> isnt daisy behind the 2nd set of trees?
04:44:03 <LindaGt> I think in back k of castle
04:44:09 <Kat> I can't tell now
04:44:34 <CraigC> I'm still a little disoriented on some things with this cam
04:44:46 <Kat> Me too :)
04:45:04 <LindaGt> It is in back of Castle. Between castle steam and weather we may not see
04:45:20 <Kat> Sprinkler was my 400th entry today!
04:45:20 <LindaGt> That's it in upper left
04:46:15 <LindaGt> See it?
04:46:33 <LindaGt> To left up amlittle
04:46:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> Kat, :thumbsup:
04:47:28 <LindaGt> GO STEAMBOAT, daisy is hard to see but I believe it went off
04:47:53 <Kat> This is Daisy preset - why would it be up on left?
04:49:13 <LindaGt> Its behind castle, but elevated in trees a bit
04:50:50 <LindaGt> Sorry Im not helping. I'll see u later.
04:51:28 <Kat> It's fine - hard to see!
04:52:25 <ChrisO> does it ever stop snowing lol
04:52:31 <CraigC> LindaGt, yeah you are, just really tough seeing conditions over there
04:53:20 <LindaGt> I remember commenting that you wouldn't be able to see daisy it castle was going.
04:53:43 <CraigC> yeah
04:53:51 <Kat> That would bed a shame!
04:53:56 <Kat> *be
04:54:07 <CraigC> can we go wide to see Dome, also
04:55:23 <CraigC> ie
04:56:01 <LindaGt> I'm going to enter daisy with ? Mark. I think I saw it. This tablet is good with shades of white. We can delete if daisy doesnt show.
04:56:17 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
04:56:39 <Kat> Sounds good Linda!
04:56:54 <CraigC> I noticed that if I push my browser to my smaller tablet screen there is better contrast
04:57:45 <Kat> Great Dome view!
04:57:57 <LindaGt> Yeah I saw a grand a while ago that not one could see. Had to send Joe screen print.
04:58:30 <CraigC> hey Dave
04:58:52 <Dave from B™> Morning Craig
05:02:44 <LindaGt> Hi dave
05:03:32 <CraigC> LC?
05:03:43 <Kat> Hi Dave
05:03:56 <CraigC> thought it went just as yhou moved
05:04:00 <Dave from B™> Morning Linda and Kat
05:04:27 <Kat> I had it at 0702
05:04:36 <CraigC> cool
05:06:10 <Kat> I need a really clear day so I can get my bearings better!! :p
05:06:25 <ynpvisitor87> I don't see the 0645 Daisy on the recording
05:07:32 <Dave from B™> ChrisO, yes, it does stop snowing in YNP. It can snow any month of the year. I've been a part of 8" at OF on Memorial Day weekend before
05:07:37 <LindaGt> It was a fleeting g image. My tablet picks up whites real well
05:08:05 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor87, is this joe?
05:08:25 <Dave from B™> I think he is hiding from me for some reason:)
05:09:39 <LindaGt> He had to to see the wizards
05:10:29 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize wizards started work so early
05:10:52 <LindaGt> I guess it's a long drive
05:17:12 <CraigC> Dome
05:17:53 <LindaG> Well i really am leaving. I'll check in on my daisy entry
05:19:16 <Kat> See you later!
05:20:09 <CraigC> dome shows on static
05:30:14 <ynpvisitor54> :p Snow
05:30:38 <Kat> :0
05:30:48 <Kat> :)
05:32:13 <CraigC> woaaaaaa
05:32:18 <CraigC> NG?
05:32:28 <CraigC> .
05:32:29 <CraigC> .
05:32:30 <CraigC> .
05:32:30 <CraigC> .
05:32:31 <CraigC> .
05:33:31 <Dave from B™> I missed it?
05:33:49 <CraigC> NG is right next to that bench, right?
05:34:14 <Dave from B™> To the right of Lion from this perspective
05:34:21 <Dave from B™> left of bw
05:34:31 <Mike J> Definitely looked like the right kind of steam. (Spoken by someone with next to no expertise.)
05:34:40 <CraigC> yep, that was NG
05:38:05 <Chancellor> Good Morning all
05:38:25 <CraigC> hey Chancellor
05:38:30 <Kat> Morning
05:38:57 <Chancellor> looks like it is snowing hard, nice
05:40:13 <Kat> Dome
05:40:14 <CraigC> Dome
05:40:48 <CraigC> and now on static, too
05:41:05 <Kat> :)
05:41:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> was NG a short duration minor or multiple minutes?
05:41:56 <CraigC> short
05:42:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, please make it a minor on GT
05:42:36 <CraigC> jjust did, thanks for reminding me
05:42:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> and good job catching it while watching for Dome :)
05:42:59 <CraigC> :)
05:44:35 <CraigC> cool that we can see Dome on static
05:44:49 <Kat> Have to watch the static for now Craig :)
05:45:01 <CraigC> OF
05:45:28 <Kat> Wow - I caught it!
05:45:29 <CraigC> I never kept static on with the old cam, but now it is in place of YNM right to the side
05:45:55 <CraigC> I keep it in large view for Lion and BH steam
05:57:28 <ynpvisitor55> this new camera focus is garbage. What's the problem? It was clearer the first day.
05:58:08 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham
05:58:44 <Kat> Has a lot to do with the weather.
05:59:06 <ynpvisitor55> how so?
05:59:16 <CraigC> did static just die?
05:59:28 <ynpvisitor55> my phone has better focus even in bad weather.
05:59:31 <Kat> Don't think so
05:59:49 <CraigC> came back
06:00:03 <Kat> That was for Craig -sorry
06:01:03 <Kat> Just seems worse in this weather - when it clears the focus improves. That's not to say it doesn't need some work.
06:01:03 <CraigC> sometimes my phone has better shots than my 2500 dslr/lens... if my adjustments are right :)
06:01:28 <CraigC> arent'
06:01:53 <ynpvisitor55> Well it is a S-9 phone lol
06:02:27 <Dave from B™> Staffer who can work on focus is out of the office until May per chat log a day or two ago
06:03:06 <CraigC> I think I read May 4 or 5
06:04:24 <ynpvisitor55> Yeah I still havent had time to figure out how to take video's with my Sony camera. Easier with my phome
06:05:08 <CraigC> I just put on "Auto" for video, I haven't learned anything for video either
06:05:38 <CraigC> except that a tripod is almost ALWAYS necessary
06:06:07 <CraigC> has Dome been going? I wasnt paying attention
06:07:07 <Kat> Just started - I was watching
06:07:18 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:07:30 <ynpvisitor55> Yeah it's a heavy camera. But motion picture still come out very good, even when I shake. I don;t think I need a trypod except is I was doing a selfie.
06:08:44 <ynpvisitor55> Oh well, thanks.
06:09:12 <CraigC> even when I use my super wide 10mm lens, it bugs me when I get home and watch any shake at all
06:10:17 <ynpvisitor55> This camera has a built in wide angle, you pan was you take the picture.
06:10:41 <CraigC> cool, is it the mirrorless kind?
06:10:48 <ynpvisitor55> kind of a cool thing.
06:10:57 <ynpvisitor55> it's digitl.
06:11:14 <Kat> Hi Kevin
06:11:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
06:13:13 <ynpvisitor55> I have had Kodak mirror in the past, split screen focus, The problem is with abuse the mirror gets banded and then the focus is bad.
06:13:55 <ynpvisitor55> Had all the lens, filters etc. I like this digital so much better.
06:17:03 <ynpvisitor55> the abd thing about digital compare to film cameras, is the pictures. Now those in black and white were printes with a silver emulsion so the photos would last for almost ever. Where color fades in about 50 year to noting left.
06:18:30 <CraigC> I took lots of slides in my early days of photography... huge regrets, they aren hardly salvageable now
06:18:38 <CraigC> are
06:18:49 <ynpvisitor55> Yeah.
06:19:15 <CraigC> I bought a good sony scanner, and they ended up looking like crap, all the dust
06:19:32 <Dave from B™> I know practically nothing about cameras. But, don't digital zooms distort the view a lot more?
06:19:38 <J. Tennessine> I wanted to be Tennessine Williams, but it was too long.
06:19:47 <CraigC> LOL
06:19:51 <ynpvisitor55> I took picture of the kids in black and white just so the would keep. Something that could be handed down from generation to generation.
06:20:45 <ynpvisitor55> The zoom on my came is great. But it sure drains the batteries.
06:20:47 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I believe so, only thing I won with digital zoom is an older camcorder, than had lens zoom, then double with digital and I rarely went past the lens zoom cuz of quality
06:20:49 <ynpvisitor55> camera
06:21:20 <Dave from B™> That has been my experience as well, CraigC
06:21:44 <Dave from B™> So, is that part of our issue with this cam? We are trying to zoom too close?
06:22:07 <ynpvisitor55> LOL my camcorder I had was so big it looked like something the news companies carried. It sat on your shoulder.
06:22:15 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I don't believe so, I believe it is tweaking. Last cam focused way better close up
06:23:42 <ynpvisitor55> You get what you pay for. Have to check how many pixels it is capable of. Most people don't check that out when puying a ditial camera
06:23:50 <ynpvisitor55> buying.
06:24:40 <CraigC> I understand this is the same series of cam as the last one
06:24:49 <ynpvisitor55> This Sony was on sale but the original price was over $400. I paid only a little more than half of that.
06:25:31 <CraigC> this cam is $10k, I believe :)
06:26:02 <Kat> well it should zoom better then! :)
06:26:11 <ynpvisitor55> LOL yep.
06:26:27 <Kat> Maybe some adjustments!
06:26:35 <ynpvisitor55> But you need to own stock in batteries. Ha ha
06:27:07 <Kat> Rechargeables is what use!
06:27:13 <Kat> *I use
06:27:48 <ynpvisitor55> Rechargeables I have but they seem to loose their charge faster I have found.
06:27:56 <ChrisO> anyone seen any doggies this morning?
06:28:16 <CraigC> hey Bill
06:28:27 <Bill> Good morning
06:28:57 <Kat> No ChrisO
06:29:41 <Kevin L™🌵> If Doggies are smart they will be down at Lower Hams drinking hot chocolate.
06:29:57 <CraigC> :)
06:30:17 <CraigC> dome?
06:30:51 <Kat> :)
06:31:57 <CraigC> Bill, have you seen any bears this season?
06:32:04 <Kat> :)
06:32:31 <Bill> Yeah, i saw a griz as i was passing MGB a couple weeks ago
06:32:40 <CraigC> awesome
06:33:18 <CraigC> we watched a mom and youngun near there last Oct
06:34:27 <ChrisO> the only bear i have ever seen was a black bear cub practically in my face on the blue ridge parkway.
06:34:56 <ChrisO> we both stared at each other for a second, then both turned and walked away
06:36:06 <CraigC> I'd need to change my pants
06:39:28 <Dave from B™> So, that is what fear smells like!:D
06:41:07 <GO DOME> Hi Bill. Any chance for more downloads soon, especially Ftn and Morning? Thanks for the Giant one before, it was nice to clean up the eruption speculation
06:54:17 <CraigC> how do you add the "Away" thing to your name?
06:54:58 <Dave from B™> slash away
06:55:21 <CraigC> thanks
06:55:29 <Kat> Dome
06:56:32 <CraigC> are there other things that can be added with the "/"?
06:57:37 <Dave from B™> slash back when you return
06:57:58 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:58:24 <CraigC> off for groceries, bbl
06:58:35 <Dave from B™> I don't remember how to do it but you can show GT data here as well. Ask Jarno or Graham
06:59:24 <LindaG> You guys are enjoying dome. Nice to be able to see so easily
07:02:07 <Dave from B™> We could get an Opening Day SB
07:02:35 <Kat> Not going to see much down basin...
07:06:49 <LindaG> It will be nice to see dome up close if it ever stops snowing
07:07:32 <Kat> Absolutely!
07:08:06 <LindaG> It has to stop. Right? 🙄
07:09:10 <Kat> Someday or not!:)
07:10:04 <Kat> Have to watch static fpr a few fpr dome
07:10:09 <Kat> *for
07:10:26 <Dave from B™> How's the bw project going?
07:14:43 <Dave from B™> Morning Chancellor
07:16:06 <GO DOME> Dave - yesterday they had the bw pulled up between VEC and old Cam entrance
07:17:33 <Dave from B™> Thanks. Not really in our view anymore
07:17:56 <Dave from B™> Is there any truth to the rumor that #8 is retiring from hockey and going into boxing?
07:18:42 <ynpvisitor999®> so, how was Dome?
07:19:37 <GO DOME> haha Dave - i was surprised it was only his 4th fight and a KO
07:19:48 <GO DOME> that will teach an upstart kid to pick on OV
07:19:59 <GO DOME> didnt do the team much good tho
07:20:12 <Dave from B™> Game 4 will be a big one
07:20:36 <Kat> Dome has nbeen rockin"
07:20:57 <Kat> *has been rockin'
07:21:37 <GO DOME> did we miss one?
07:21:40 <GO DOME> now?
07:22:13 <GO DOME> good luck tonight with the sweep
07:22:15 <Kevin L™🌵> He didn't do too well against Reaves.
07:24:31 <GO DOME> they lost track of the need to shoot the puck at the goal
07:25:18 <J. Tennessine> GO DOME, I noticed that.
07:25:26 <Dave from B™> 1 shot in the 2nd period isn't going to win any games
07:28:01 <Kat> OF
07:28:31 <Chancellor> nice
07:30:28 <GO DOME> i think they only had 2 in the third too, pathetic
07:31:59 <Kat> Where's the wiper?? :)
07:32:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Calgary Colorado was a pretty brutal game too. I think they are trying to chip in on the WWF action this year.
07:33:22 <Dave from B™> Tension mount in the playoff because by Game 3 you are already sick of seeing the same guy coming after you.
07:33:24 <GO DOME> if they get beaten up more, are the yallowed to bring walkers onto the ice?
07:34:12 <Kat> Diasy?
07:34:17 <Kat> Daisy?
07:40:41 <Dave from B™> I hope Isles can win tonight so we can get some rest
07:41:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Nikita Nesterov lost a skate blade in the game and looked like he had a walker getting off the ice.
07:44:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
07:45:10 <Kat> :)
07:46:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Could be that Whirligig is speeding up again. Hopefully that means the disturbance has almost passed or is done for already
07:50:22 <Kat> Can someone help me out? What is the best landmark for daisy?
07:50:50 <Ben VL> I would definitely like to see porkchop heat up again. It's still in a "valley".
07:50:59 <Dave from B™> Just to the left of the tallest tree in the Castle Forest
07:51:41 <BruceJ> What's that steaming thing over there? Comet?
07:51:56 <Ben VL> That helps... I was going to say it's behind some trees
07:52:04 <CraigC> how do I remove "away"? I tried "back"
07:52:25 <ynpvisitor999®> do /away again
07:52:35 <CraigC> thanks
07:52:38 <Kat> In this view left of the tallest tree in the foreground ?
07:52:41 <ynpvisitor999®> no problem :)
07:52:48 <CraigC> is time wrong on static for others?
07:52:56 <Kat> Yes - has been
07:53:08 <Dave from B™> yes
07:53:44 <Ben VL> I would love to see a list of all the chat commands and their syntax. Does anybode know if there is one somewhere?
07:54:10 <ynpvisitor999®> only /help exists
07:54:30 <ynpvisitor999®> which does nothing more than show a list of commands, no syntax whatsoever
07:54:31 <CraigC> on static, looks maybe a dome 32 mins ago
07:54:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Pretty sure the static is down at the moment
07:54:52 <Kat> So in Daisy preset which is this view it is way left instead of centered more. The tallest tree is at the left edge of this view.
07:55:15 <ynpvisitor999®> else it would show a time within about 5 minutes of the actual time
07:55:24 <CraigC> so scrolling back on static is off on the time?
07:55:28 <BruceJ> Kat - Yes, i think you need to go left some more Daisy.
07:55:41 <Kat> Thanks
07:55:55 <BruceJ> just a little bit
07:56:18 <ynpvisitor999®> pretty much, Craig. It probably shows the 'minutes' based on how many frames you actually scrolled back
07:56:35 <CraigC> ok, dang :)
07:58:57 <Kat> Dave from B™, Thanks for the help!
07:59:44 <Kat> Could have been missed while on OF
08:02:10 <Kat> Thanks everyone!
08:02:48 <BruceJ> Could be that Daisy was missed - or it could be shy today. That steam cloud could be Daisy fixin' to play.
08:04:06 <Kat> The previous Daisy was ? due to the heavy snow and fog. So time may be off some.
08:04:18 <LindaGt> Hi
08:04:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:04:37 <BruceJ> Lots of possibilities for Daisy on a day like this.
08:04:53 <LindaGt> Grand
08:04:53 <ynpvisitor73> Grand
08:05:57 <BruceJ> Wow - those controls are fast.
08:06:17 <ynpvisitor73> cam controls like trying to get a mitre saw at the right angle :D
08:06:33 <BruceJ> :D
08:06:54 <LindaGt> Grand?
08:06:58 <Dave from B™> My view isn't looking at Grand and I just refreshed. Where are you seeing Grand?
08:07:19 <ynpvisitor73> Grand started but then the cam moved
08:07:22 <LindaGt> At 10:04
08:07:26 <BruceJ> I see castle=Daisy
08:07:32 <Kat> Was on Grand as it started then moved off - I think.
08:07:48 <Kat> Can we move to Grand?
08:07:51 <LindaGt> Oh Kevin has it?
08:07:58 <Kat> Yeah
08:08:26 <LindaGt> Kevin grand going
08:08:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Admin has it
08:08:57 <LindaGt> Oh ok sorry
08:08:57 <CraigC> ;)
08:09:20 <LindaGt> Back there is daisy I believe
08:09:29 <Ben VL> Let's get Splendid instead...
08:09:32 <Kat> Oh...I posted it - won't know the details
08:09:35 <BruceJ> LOLZ!
08:09:42 <ynpvisitor73> there were some people walking on the boardwalk towards Grand
08:09:51 <ynpvisitor73> so. . . .
08:10:05 <ynpvisitor73>
08:10:12 <BruceJ> Privacy for those peeps is important!
08:10:15 <Dave from B™> Bigfoot again?
08:10:30 <ynpvisitor73> it was the bigfoot spot
08:10:36 <CraigC> they are filming a moon landing?
08:10:37 <BruceJ> "It's a TRAP!"
08:11:07 <ynpvisitor73> now is the perfect time for more bigfoot images because it's so blurry
08:11:55 <LindaGt> Now is perfect for daisy
08:16:50 <CraigC> bison?
08:17:25 <ynpvisitor73> no, bigfoot
08:17:48 <CraigC> I see it now
08:18:19 <ynpvisitor73> this researcher avoidance is annoying
08:21:26 <Kat> I'm going to make a note on Grand
08:21:47 <Kat> Does Admin still ahve the cam?
08:21:54 <Kat> *have
08:22:09 <Kat> Never mind...
08:23:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie?
08:23:58 <CraigC> solitary
08:24:32 <Eric> Morning all
08:24:39 <CraigC> hey Eric
08:24:46 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
08:24:49 <Kat> I have no idea on bursts for Grand, anyone?
08:25:08 <Eric> Hi Craig & Jarno
08:25:38 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:25:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Just leave that section blank. May want to comment about no view from the cam
08:26:14 <Kat> That's what I thought I should do, thanks!
08:27:38 <Dave from B™> Just put 6 down...no one will notice
08:27:51 <CraigC> ;)
08:28:04 <LindaGt> 😊
08:28:32 <Kat> I was going to Dave - but then the dreaded flag! hehe
08:29:09 <CraigC> we might have missed a Dome, hope we can go back on static at some point
08:29:09 <Kat> Now -I'm going to the pool be back soon!
08:29:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Is Dome in this view?
08:29:47 <CraigC> yes, Kevin
08:29:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I was thinking it was.
08:30:09 <LindaGt> On right in back
08:30:10 <Dave from B™> Kat, there is no pool talk allowed during snowstorms!
08:30:26 <Dave from B™> That's just rubbing it in:)
08:30:37 <Kat> :p
08:31:14 <Ryan(> Guess Steamboat is going long
08:31:20 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
08:31:21 <CraigC> hey Ryan(
08:31:28 <Ryan(> Morning
08:34:36 <CraigC> LC
08:35:45 <Eric> Steamboat Average over the last 12 intervals is 8d 3h 45m
08:35:59 <Eric> We are only at 7d 14h
08:36:22 <Eric> Not even past average yet!
08:36:29 <CraigC> Eric is a Steamboat apologist
08:36:49 <Eric> I am an averagist
08:37:39 <CraigC> dome?
08:38:09 <LindaGt> Yes its starting
08:38:11 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:38:58 <Kevin L™🌵> This is almost a better view than in the basin.
08:39:36 <LindaGt> It is
08:40:26 <CraigC> when people say "ski run", are they talking that open line in the trees to the right of dome?
08:41:05 <LindaGt> Looks like it's just steaming
08:41:08 <Dave from B™> OPEN LINE IN TREES
08:41:33 <Dave from B™> oops
08:42:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Is your wife going to make it back today Dave?
08:42:29 <Dave from B™> She made it in at midnight last night
08:43:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Oh how fun!
08:43:55 <Dave from B™> So, I slept for 2 hours woke up and had a hard time getting back to sleep
08:44:24 <CraigC> :i::i:
08:44:31 <LindaGt> Bee steaming
08:45:37 <CraigC> should I enter Dome?
08:46:37 <Dave from B™> Woohoo...A nice gourmet home cooked meal tonight:)
08:46:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes Craig
08:46:58 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:47:41 <LindaGt> Lion purring
08:48:09 <ynpvisitor> Nice of you to cook your wife a welcome home dinner. But wait, you are both on a diet, she going to like rice cakes and yogurt?
08:49:10 <Dave from B™> You caught me. Gourmet compared to the last 5 nights. Chicken for sure
08:49:29 <CraigC> rice cakes = carbs LOL
08:50:58 <CraigC> marmot cave erupting?
08:51:11 <Dave from B™> I stayed even while my wife was gone but long nights of watching TV led to too much chip and cheezit consumption
08:51:31 <CraigC> I swear focus was better the very first evening when we saw water jetting at Marmot Cave
08:51:34 <LindaGt> Yay marmot
08:51:34 <ynpvisitor> What is wrong with carbs? I eat them and do not have a weight problem.
08:52:19 <CraigC> hey Jake
08:52:33 <ynpvisitor> I thought those were banned from the house.
08:53:01 <CraigC> LindaGt, did it look like Marmot was erupting just now when it was zoomed in?
08:53:18 <Dave from B™> Almost...we installed an eyescan for the pantry but I have figure out how to crack it
08:53:26 <Betty> morning all
08:53:32 <CraigC> hey Betty
08:53:42 <Betty> hi CraigC
08:53:47 <LindaGt> I think so CraigC,
08:53:55 <Dave from B™> Hey Betty
08:54:02 <LindaGt> Betty, hi
08:54:15 <Betty> hi Dave from B™ and LindaGt
08:54:40 <Dave from B™> Betty, who you rooting for today in CL?
08:55:27 <Betty> Ajax and ManU
08:57:47 <Betty> VEC is stuck
08:58:08 <Betty> *cam
08:58:40 <Dave from B™> I'm half with you, Betty. I'm cheering for Barcelona
09:00:02 <ynpvisitor> What is the other half cheering for?
09:00:20 <Betty> Ajax
09:00:21 <Dave from B™> Ajax
09:00:40 <Eric> OF
09:00:50 <ynpvisitor> A dedicated fan?
09:01:11 <Betty> hi Eric and ynpvisitor
09:01:15 <Betty> no
09:01:16 <Eric> Hi BEtty
09:01:49 <ynpvisitor> What are we cheering about, a chess match?
09:02:06 <ynpvisitor> Hi Betty
09:03:14 <Dave from B™> kicking a round ball
09:03:23 <Kevin L™🌵> A cleanser.
09:03:36 <ynpvisitor> A rather unspectacular of', got to go, enjoy lots of' flowers.
09:03:38 <Dave from B™> powder flying everywhere
09:03:55 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
09:04:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
09:04:07 <Eric> wow...nice zoom
09:04:08 <Betty> have fun
09:05:14 <Eric> I gotta say...this camera has a nice viewpoint, but it is a LONG ways from everything
09:05:34 <Eric> Have we caught a mugwump or three sisters yet?
09:05:42 <Ben VL> That zoom looks clear
09:06:03 <Dave from B™> I see green grass
09:06:03 <Eric> It was blurry :-(
09:06:06 <Betty> Dome?
09:06:21 <Eric> Even this wide view is slightly blurred
09:07:35 <Eric> I haven't got to see a BH yet from the new cam...better or worse than the old one?
09:07:47 <Betty> did we have a sunny day with the new cam yet?
09:07:50 <CraigC> I liked the angle of the old one better
09:08:05 <CraigC> I like this angle for almost everything else
09:08:08 <Betty> Aurum is fun
09:08:26 <Eric> Yes, Aurum we can actually see now!
09:08:46 <CraigC> I think OF was better with the old one, no buildings in the background
09:15:44 <Eric> The cool thing is, they could really move the cam to anywhere there is power now
09:16:08 <Eric> They don't have to change any of the networking setup
09:16:30 <CraigC> Eric, where would be better than this or the previous spot?
09:16:59 <Eric> Not sure Craig...but it would be easier to move now
09:17:13 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
09:17:54 <Eric> I hope we can get a WC mugwump or three sisters recorded :-D It will be a first!
09:18:02 <Dave from B™> Whose that a flock of swallows or something flying around the roof?
09:18:11 <CraigC> I love this new view of GH. If they could be another static by the lodge that pointed out over everything, that would be ideal, IMO
09:18:54 <Eric> I like the no shaking camera!
09:18:59 <Eric> Bison
09:19:10 <Ryan(> Big pump
09:19:45 <CraigC> what just happended at depression
09:19:48 <Eric> Pumps have been pretty large and often Ryan...not sure how they compare to pre-2018 event
09:21:59 <ynpvisitor35> Ok hopefully this works. In red circle is what I think was daisy this morning http://imgur.com/gallery/iBw1ava
09:23:01 <CraigC> Linda, that seems left to me
09:23:36 <LindaGt> I wonder what it could be
09:24:14 <CraigC> separate chunk of steam from that below coming from Castle?
09:24:35 <Eric> stream down
09:24:51 <LindaGt> Possible, when I saw it looked real distinct
09:25:08 <CraigC> refreshed and back
09:25:30 <LindaGt> Ok I'll delete it
09:25:54 <CraigC> LindaGt, I'm still fairly new here, ask others
09:26:40 <LindaGt> It does seem left. I know it was in back of castle, hmmm
09:27:12 <LindaGt> We can let Joe look when he returns
09:27:32 <LindaGt> Lc
09:28:05 <LindaGt> No its lion
09:28:36 <CraigC> LindaGt, you didnt see that burst from depression?
09:29:30 <LindaGt> I wasnt looking ☹
09:30:21 <Eric> 3 more days until park opens?
09:30:44 <Eric> to public vehicle travel
09:30:50 <Betty> not Daisy, Linda
09:31:19 <LindaGt> Betty, ok I'll delete
09:31:45 <Betty> can you switch dowbasin?
09:31:46 <Dave from B™> I wonder how SB looks from the parking lot
09:31:49 <CraigC> wow, go pump
09:32:16 <CraigC> what is depression doing right now?
09:32:24 <LindaGt> Look at bee
09:32:58 <LindaGt> Nothing that I can see but on delay
09:33:23 <Betty> depression is quiet
09:33:29 <Eric> BH seems much further away from this cam view
09:33:50 <LindaGt> Without steam difficult to aee
09:34:14 <CraigC> am I looking at the right place, is depression straight in line with marmot cave?
09:34:53 <Betty> almost, yes
09:35:00 <CraigC> dome is about to go?
09:35:10 <LindaGt> Yup
09:35:15 <Betty> yep
09:35:55 <CraigC> see, I think this is a way more exciting view than the old cam
09:36:24 <LindaGt> Betty, any ideas about what that could have been. At time I felt it was distinct from castle, not carry over steam
09:36:58 <Betty> could you switch there for a second?
09:37:04 <LindaGt> Thinkmthose were swallows
09:37:19 <LindaGt> I'm not on cam, Kevin is
09:37:45 <Betty> bah
09:37:50 <Eric> Kevin is ZZZZZZZZZZZ
09:37:54 <Betty> is he asleep`?
09:38:00 <Eric> :-D
09:38:03 <CraigC> maybe he is feeding chickens
09:38:05 <Betty> lol
09:38:28 <Betty> I think we have indy maybe
09:38:43 <LindaGt> That would be nice
09:38:45 <Betty> no
09:39:07 <CraigC> Betty, looked like 2 steam trails, huh
09:39:52 <ynpvisitor40> Lc I think
09:40:28 <Betty> yummy,just had the rest of my wild garlic soup :-p
09:40:37 <CraigC> Betty, is one of the enemones or improbable going?
09:41:01 <CraigC> lol at my spelling
09:41:02 <LindaGt> Betty, 😆
09:41:12 <Betty> think improbable
09:41:39 <J. Tennessine> CraigC, I think enemones attract enemy insects
09:41:45 <Betty> wait, now looks like Big A
09:41:48 <CraigC> J. Tennessine, LOL
09:42:33 <Betty> I hate to be lagged
09:42:38 <LindaGt> Kevin L™🌵, can you switch down basin for a second
09:43:08 <Betty> shout louder, Linda, to wake him
09:43:24 <LindaGt> We may have to resort to calling an aurum,😉
09:43:24 <CraigC> use your camops walkie talkie
09:44:34 <LindaGt> This is my camops walkie talkie lol
09:45:32 <Betty> big A ie
09:46:57 <Eric> Bummer that grove has not been active
09:48:00 <CraigC> how many know when grove is erupting?
09:48:28 <Betty> he´s awake!
09:48:36 <CraigC> is it fairly obvious?
09:48:41 <LindaGt> Someone called it the other day
09:48:52 <LindaGt> There we go
09:48:52 <CraigC> graham did last entry
09:49:01 <Betty> thx
09:49:24 <Betty> that could have been Pyramid
09:49:38 <LindaGt> Wow
09:49:58 <Betty> but not really sure
09:50:24 <LindaGt> Looks like little mushroom cloud in pic
09:51:06 <LindaGt> So daisy is more to the right side of castle?
09:51:43 <Betty> yes
09:52:10 <CraigC> grove on gosa; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TdfRqyCL0U
09:53:10 <LindaGt> Grove is in the trees, I knew where itnwas on old cam sigh
09:53:15 <Betty> that could have been a double-push of Castle either
09:53:36 <Jake> I didn't think this cam could see the Round Group or Three Sisters. Which pole is the cam mounted on?
09:54:42 <LindaGt> I think it's attached to deck
09:55:26 <CraigC> we can see steam from Cliff Geyser
09:56:18 <CraigC> but I don't think we can see "The Ruins"
09:56:28 <Betty> little A ie
10:03:46 <ynpvisitor74> Cam Driver. If you get a chance will please show me Castle to Beehive just for a second.
10:04:27 <Eric> Jake, this cam can clearly see three sisters
10:05:39 <LindaGt> When you swing cam all the way you can see railing of deck above it
10:05:48 <Betty> Dome
10:05:49 <Dave from B™> Jake hasn't seen Sasquatch then
10:06:46 <Eric> If you draw a line along the rooftop of the inn, that is pretty much what we can see over there
10:08:45 <Betty> Big A
10:08:45 <LindaGt> bbl
10:10:36 <GO DOME> the cam is positioned off the edge of the roof, on the old Faithful corner, so it can see slong to the VEC and back to Snow lodge over tthe roof, and back to Myriad to see Three Sisters and a binch of uther unknown steaming holes back alonf the roofline
10:11:03 <GO DOME> wow lots of typos
10:11:12 <Betty> hi Dave

10:12:13 <Eric> That gives you an idea of the view line from the Inn
10:12:53 <CraigC> hominids
10:13:14 <ynpvisitor74> Is Sasquatch a hominid or a great ape?
10:13:53 <CraigC> hmmm, I'd guess hominid IF there are any
10:14:27 <Eric> I believe the edge is west trail geyser
10:15:46 <Eric> I wish this camera had a higher optical zoom than 20x
10:15:57 <Eric> Now that we are so far away
10:16:34 <ynpvisitor77> Did admin fix the zoom blur?
10:17:43 <Jake> thanks for the info
10:18:01 <Jake> cam is mounted higher than I thought it would be then to have clearance to see Three Sisters et al
10:18:27 <Jake> Sprinkler ie
10:18:37 <Eric> Yes and it's a nice view of that group too
10:19:27 <ynpvisitor69> The only way to get higher is to sign up to take the flags down, or get a job as a bell hop.
10:19:43 <ynpvisitor69> Drones ar enot allowed
10:19:46 <Jake> is the intent for the overnight view to be on Old Faithful?
10:20:10 <ynpvisitor77> Not so far
10:20:27 <ynpvisitor77> It’s on GH to Grand view
10:20:52 <ynpvisitor69> They need more grave yard cam ops.
10:20:58 <Kevin L™🌵> They are experimenting. When Joe is up he can move it.
10:21:46 <Jake> I'm trying to think of options to capture the most overnight eruptions or expand predictions to account for missing eruptions
10:22:00 <ynpvisitor69> Don't you have lights on your layout? Good excuse to stay up and play with trains.
10:22:18 <Jake> An automated overnight autopilot that swings back and forth every X minutes could be an option
10:22:42 <ynpvisitor69> Not if it missed OF'.
10:23:08 <Jake> but so far the intent has not been to show OF overnight?
10:23:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Joe did a totally awesome job last knight
10:24:11 <Jake> autopilot could be setup to not miss the pre-dawn Old Faithful but be free to roam prior to that time
10:24:31 <CraigC> can we check on dome?
10:24:35 <Eric> Yep, auto panning camera has been suggesteed
10:25:20 <Eric> OF is in window...
10:25:33 <CraigC> bummer static is down, dome shows on static
10:25:58 <CraigC> dome and OF can both fit in wide view of cam
10:26:17 <Eric> OF
10:28:10 <ynpvisitor69> After all the talk of' missed eruptions, I am surprised at how the list of' eruptions has grown. Daisy excepted.
10:28:53 <CraigC> ynpvisitor69, for me, it is easier to identify features erupting on geyser hill on this new cam
10:29:19 <ynpvisitor69> I am expecting to see the next sb listed as a wc.
10:29:52 <ynpvisitor69> Time to go, enjoy lots of flowers.
10:30:30 <Steph> Hi Everybody!!
10:30:32 <CraigC> hey Steph
10:30:51 <Betty> hi Steph
10:31:08 <Steph> CraigC, Betty, ya'll having a good day?
10:31:17 <Betty> yup
10:31:30 <CraigC> so so, another day of rain, another day of not biking
10:32:22 <Dave from B™> Is your bike made of paper or something else that melts in the rain?
10:32:36 <Steph> Dave from B™, :lol:
10:32:37 <CraigC> Dave from B™, trails get muddy in rain :)
10:32:57 <CraigC> it is bad form to ride in mud and cause damage that dries and hardens
10:33:42 <Steph> and mud feels gross splattered all over your legs. Blech!
10:33:50 <CraigC> yep
10:34:07 <Eric> Trails were super muddy here on Sunday
10:34:18 <Eric> Muck up to my ankles in places
10:34:18 <CraigC> I've used the car wash on my legs after washing my bike, and it hurts
10:34:49 <Eric> Try a pressure washer Craig :-P
10:34:54 <CraigC> here goes dome
10:35:01 <Betty> little A
10:35:15 <Eric> I don't see anemone
10:35:28 <Betty> I´m lagged
10:35:33 <Eric> ohhh :-P
10:35:42 <Dave from B™> CraigC, do you only ride on dirt trails?
10:35:46 <Betty> when I see it it is gone
10:35:55 <Eric> Makes sense
10:36:14 <Betty> I hate to be lagged.
10:36:25 <CraigC> Dave from B™, almost always.... sometimes I ride on a closed road up to Snow Basin ski resort for a simple cardio ride
10:36:30 <Eric> Then use a browser that has flash!
10:36:55 <Betty> I use ff
10:37:16 <Eric> Install Flash, then it should work I assume
10:37:37 <Eric> without delay
10:38:19 <Eric> dome
10:39:19 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a quick one.
10:39:28 <CraigC> Dave from B™, once in a while I ride from my house to a trailhead
10:39:37 <Betty> it started 1234
10:39:41 <CraigC> but I abhor riding near cars
10:40:13 <CraigC> I entered 1235, then deleted when I saw yours
10:40:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Car vs bike is never good for the bike.
10:40:59 <Dave from B™> I'm going to resist the urge to throw you under a bus and say I do understand cars make me nervous on a bike
10:41:19 <Dave from B™> You need an indoor bike
10:41:25 <CraigC> roadies assert they have legal right away, but then they lose to an illegal distracted driver
10:41:25 <Eric> I have been hit by a car on my bike
10:41:54 <Dave from B™> legal right away doesn't mean anything as far as your health
10:41:54 <Eric> I feel your nervousness. Most car drivers suck and have no clue how to be careful around cyclists.
10:42:12 <Kevin L™🌵> And vice versa
10:42:42 <Dave from B™> I real want to get a road bike and drive on the roads around my immediate area but some roads are narrow and not safe for a bike
10:42:48 <CraigC> to me it is like leaving your car unlocked with all your money on the front seat... if you think it shoudl be safe because it is against the law for someone to take it, you;re foolish :)
10:42:48 <Eric> If you are driving a car...be more careful!
10:43:08 <Steph> I've been hit by a car on my bike too.
10:43:18 <Eric> Ok...this zoom is NOT focused!
10:43:28 <Eric> Not even close
10:43:33 <ChrisO> we know
10:43:48 <Kevin L™🌵> They know also
10:44:01 <Eric> Do the controls show you how many X zoom this is?
10:44:15 <CraigC> pump pumping
10:44:17 <Kevin L™🌵> 10.53
10:44:37 <Eric> crazy...that is optical and should be sharp as a tack
10:45:10 <Betty> LC ie
10:45:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Trust me. Focus is being addressed.
10:45:24 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
10:45:42 <ChrisO> is that a doggie?
10:45:51 <Betty> yep
10:46:15 <ChrisO> :):)
10:46:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't see a doggie
10:46:33 <Dave from B™> Nice to see some color returning to the cam view
10:46:38 <CraigC> are there swallows swarming around?
10:46:42 <Steph> I agree!!
10:46:46 <ChrisO> right in front of the sign near the trail
10:46:59 <Betty> start of trail to BH overlook
10:47:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Still don't see it
10:47:49 <CraigC> lower left in trees
10:47:56 <Kat> Right in the trees below
10:48:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Was looking across the river
10:48:29 <Kat> :)
10:48:33 <CraigC> that is better forcus than we have seen
10:48:33 <Betty> :i::i:
10:49:06 <ChrisO> i think bison are my new favorite animal :)
10:49:08 <CraigC> just keep the cam pointed at the pathway until they can fix the focus
10:49:17 <Dave from B™> birds flying around the Inn may be a problem all the time. When I stay there, they are flying underneath the roof all the time
10:49:37 <Dave from B™> Quick...What does the sign say?
10:49:51 <ChrisO> stay on the trail, or perish in a boiling death
10:49:56 <Kat> Stay on the path hehe
10:50:13 <Dave from B™> Mileage sign, most likely, for GH and Grand?
10:50:17 <CraigC> Beware of Bison in Trees
10:50:24 <Kat> LOL
10:50:48 <CraigC> "You can't get to Beehive from here"
10:51:14 <Eric> Bunch of bison on mammoth static
10:51:30 <ChrisO> ty
10:51:31 <Dave from B™> haha Craig
10:51:49 <Dave from B™> That sounds like an old country song
10:51:51 <CraigC> Dave from B™, you tried too?
10:52:26 <Dave from B™> You can get to BH.....it's just a LONG ways
10:53:38 <LindaGt> Kat, it was determined what i thought was daisy was indeed to far left
10:54:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a short way if you don't mind getting wet.
10:54:13 <CraigC> LOL
10:54:18 <CraigC> or hnadcuffed
10:54:52 <Kat> I had a hard time identifying the landmarks. The preset is off and they will be working on it.
10:55:29 <LindaGt> It was rough. I was too far left but I agree preset is off
10:55:34 <Kat> Linda, not off - but needs adjustment...
10:56:01 <LindaGt> 👍
10:56:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Presets were guesses.
10:56:36 <LindaGt> Yeah it's in general area but could be tweaked
10:56:39 <Eric> We need a three sisters preset :-D
10:56:41 <CraigC> seems like they did a good job as a start
10:56:45 <ynpvisitor69> Nice collection of bison chips
10:56:59 <LindaGt> CraigC, I agree
10:57:01 <Kat> I'm sure, it was rush before Dave left. Appreciate all that was done!
10:57:01 <CraigC> Eric, there is, I understand
10:57:24 <Eric> Nice Pump
10:57:24 <LindaGt> Yes myriad preset
10:57:30 <Steph> Woot!
10:57:31 <Eric> very cool
10:57:46 <Steph> I wish I could hear the wumps too!
10:57:49 <Kevin L™🌵> There is a Myriad preset.
10:57:52 <Eric> Lion looks hot
10:58:44 <CraigC> so is Grove in a line from the line of the path next to Lion?
10:58:50 <Eric> Alright...lunch time, expect Bee now :-D
10:59:05 <Kat> :)
10:59:57 <LindaGt> Geez I don't know lost my bearing on it
11:03:49 <LindaGt> I would guess between lion and left most geyser steaming is where grove is.
11:04:32 <LindaGt> When it goes off it's sort of in the trees so easier to spot
11:04:57 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
11:05:11 <Betty> dome
11:05:13 <Kevin L™🌵> What we need is to have Bill bring a yellow smoke signal and setit off while he is standing by it.
11:05:14 <CraigC> dome
11:05:31 <LindaGt> That's my new favorite geyser
11:05:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Much more interesting when you can see it.
11:06:15 <Betty> it is
11:06:50 <CraigC> another cool one now is Old Tardy
11:07:10 <Steph> I love old Tardy!!
11:07:11 <CraigC> I've seen ti twice
11:07:20 <ynpvisitor31> Grand time in GT does not indicate WC
11:07:39 <ynpvisitor31> 1004ns
11:08:24 <CraigC> uh oh, back on double secret probation
11:08:48 <CraigC> Betty, what is this little one lower left
11:09:01 <LindaGt> I dont think I've seen old tardy yet
11:09:39 <Betty> I think improbable
11:12:04 <LindaGt> Vigil at Notre dame
11:13:57 <Dave from B™> Off to sweat again. That's the advantage of working out indoors. Enjoy BH
11:14:08 <CraigC> cya Dave
11:14:18 <LindaGt> Bye
11:14:22 <Betty> have fun, Dave
11:14:32 <Kevin L™🌵> bye
11:15:09 <Dave from B™> Trying hard to get to a 10 year low on the scale....1.5 to go
11:15:49 <ynpvisitor37> why do you think you will miss BH? Not even the window yet
11:16:46 <CraigC> joke
11:17:04 <CraigC> best stuff goes right after you leave
11:17:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Because Beehive does what it wants, more-or-less. We've had several unanticipated sub-10h intervals and many Bees outside its window
11:17:36 <ynpvisitor37> not lately 999
11:17:46 <Betty> LC ie
11:17:50 <CraigC> and SB wont go if Dave is around
11:17:53 <GO DOME> Dave is leaving, so it should be SB next
11:18:03 <CraigC> :)
11:18:31 <Betty> yeah
11:18:46 <ynpvisitor37> last 10 hr BH was March 5
11:19:21 <CraigC> guess it wasn't funny according to stats :)
11:21:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave was also in the dentist chair when the last Giantess went.
11:22:40 <CraigC> double pain
11:24:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Triple pain. Don't forget the bill.
11:24:29 <CraigC> yeah
11:24:52 <CraigC> nitrous might mitigate though
11:25:08 <Betty> what happened with the baseball attack?
11:25:14 <LindaGt> Grove sits in woods beyond pendant spring.
11:25:30 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a hot dog Betty
11:25:36 <Steph> Well I gotta run for a bit, hope to see you guys later today!
11:25:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye
11:25:48 <LindaGt> Steph, bye
11:25:48 <CraigC> cya Steph
11:26:16 <LindaGt> Do we know where pendant spring is?
11:26:28 <Betty> I don´t
11:26:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Click on it
11:26:38 <CraigC> LindaGt, looks like a tangent to the right of grove
11:26:59 <GO DOME> Grove is beyond NG from here
11:27:17 <CraigC> looking at gt map and the trajectories, I think Grove is due north of the cam
11:27:17 <Betty> ok, I do :-)
11:27:26 <CraigC> GO DOME, yes
11:27:29 <GO DOME> and pendant would be to the right but i dont think we can make it out from here
11:27:32 <LindaGt> Yeah it is really across from ear spring
11:28:19 <GO DOME> yes Linda, probably a bit to theright too
11:28:57 <CraigC> i saw steam from one of those 2 this morning, didnt know which
11:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> You can see Ear Spring as a white patch to the left of Lion. Inbetween Lion and Ear is Grove, forming a triangle, with Grove being the top
11:29:41 <GO DOME> Ear is to the right of Lion
11:30:10 <ynpvisitor999®> it's actually almost dead-center between Lion and Ear
11:30:33 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks for correcting, Graham. Indeed, Ear is to the right of Lion
11:30:54 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, I remember you pointing out that white patch the other day
11:31:44 <Betty> I like to see the river now
11:31:54 <CraigC> ear is just barely to the right of the bend in bw?
11:32:03 <GO DOME> i think its easy to find Gronve as beyond NG in the edge of the trees, its the only thing back there
11:32:17 <Betty> oppostie to the bench on bw
11:32:43 <GO DOME> ear is at the top of the rise from Lion headed toward Aurum. might be able to pick out the bench at Ear too
11:33:10 <LindaGt> Grove is obvious when it goes because it's in trees
11:33:40 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor999®, did you call it the other day, someone did
11:33:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Blurry Ear
11:34:00 <Betty> Graham did
11:34:45 <GO DOME> a column of steam back there would mean its erupting
11:35:32 <GO DOME> Dme time?
11:35:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Doublet Thumps.
11:36:07 <CraigC> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TdfRqyCL0U&t=8576s
11:36:54 <CraigC> grove is probably hard to pick out unless zoomed on lion area
11:37:18 <GO DOME> the steam column is quite obvious really
11:37:46 <CraigC> maybe for sasquatches :)
11:39:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
11:42:00 <LindaGt> Ah it was graham that called grove
11:49:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope this map helps a bit. Not quite sure about Pendant Spring and the exact location of Goggles Spring, but I do think the lines point to near their spot: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ar66qwip5R2QeW5ubXr_rFeqr2URXAts
11:52:17 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor999®, that's very helpful. Thanks so much
11:52:59 <GO DOME> i think Goggles Spring is just to the right of the two trees. have to watch for steam from it when theres an intermediate
11:53:58 <GO DOME> otherwise looks good ... not sure how far Pendant is along that boardwalk, but its out of sight and the eruptions are small splashes which will be below the boardwalk from here
11:57:08 <LindaGt> We are very close to old faithful Window!!!!
11:57:21 <GO DOME> Have the boardwalk repairs been done so the back side of GH can be opened?
11:57:44 <GO DOME> have you tried decaf Linda?
11:59:40 <ynpvisitor12> Sorry
12:00:52 <LindaGt1> I'll be calm...ommmm
12:01:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I've corrected GS' location, thanks for pointing that out
12:06:09 <GO DOME> yw Jarno, thanks for doing it. We should get GOSA to host some webcam views
12:06:31 <GO DOME> maybe one of the GOSA officials that visit here will see this
12:06:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope so too
12:07:20 <GO DOME> one is on his way to the park, so he might not see it
12:07:45 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd be already happy if it were to be a couple of static cams :)
12:08:33 <GO DOME> well i meant to host the webcam pointer views like you just produced.
12:09:00 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, that way around :P
12:09:06 <GO DOME> and advertise on their social media
12:10:14 <GO DOME> hostme webcams is beyond what they can do
12:11:21 <GO DOME> Dome?
12:15:54 <ynpvisitor999®> OF taking its time
12:16:26 <LindaGt1> I know ☹
12:16:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Either that or it went really early
12:16:59 <GO DOME> 30 people on chat, a lot for a snowy day
12:17:41 <GO DOME> 50% re numbers
12:17:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Boom
12:18:05 <LindaGt1> Yay
12:18:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice contrast
12:18:47 <LindaGt1> Pretty
12:18:58 <J. Tennessine> This one looks really good
12:22:08 <ynpvisitor999®> oh great - Lion ini near end
12:23:21 <ynpvisitor999®> likely started around 1415
12:23:32 <LindaGt1> ynpvisitor999®, how did you know that?
12:23:52 <ynpvisitor999®> because there weren't any signs of an eruption previously
12:25:21 <Betty> LC
12:25:36 <ynpvisitor999®> if there were, we'd have had an eruption around the time the cam was focused on Little Cub @ 1317, or at least very good attempts at going
12:27:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Graham, static has been stuck since 0844 this morning
12:27:55 <ynpvisitor999®> at least, that's what its time says
12:28:50 <GO DOME> haha shows how mych attention i have been paying. not able to watch streaming
12:28:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
12:29:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Anyway, I'm off for today. Have fun watching Lion
12:29:47 <LindaGt1> ynpvisitor999®, bye
12:30:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye
12:30:05 <GO DOME> bye Jarno
12:46:10 <Kent> Is the Beehive algorithm way out of whack?
12:50:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it is BH that is out of whack!
12:50:47 <Kent> :)
12:51:18 <LindaGt1> Dome
12:52:17 <Kent> K, can I see nightime default, Castle to Beehive? After Dome of course.
12:52:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Who would have thought that Dome would become one of the best geysers on the cam?
12:52:53 <Kent> My exact thought
12:53:42 <LindaGt1> Thatnwas kind of weak
12:53:42 <Kevin L™🌵> It only does reach Grand to BH.
12:54:25 <Kent> OK thanks
12:54:44 <Kevin L™🌵> This is roughly it.
12:55:35 <Kevin L™🌵> When Joe of DaveM are up they can move it which is the best solution. Joe did a great job last night.
12:56:12 <Kent> It's not that bad except for Castle Daisy & Fluff
12:57:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Best that can be done.
12:57:49 <Kent> Now if static can be made more light sensitive
12:58:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Looking at that option also
12:58:43 <GO DOME> How about a static cam on the lower Hams?
12:59:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I like it
12:59:01 <GO DOME> or the un-historic gas station
12:59:51 <GO DOME> or gopro on the hood of someones car in the lot
13:00:18 <Jake> the Beehive prediction is not very good. hasn't been updated all winter
13:00:42 <GO DOME> that requires a work request and maintenance agreement to change it
13:01:03 <GO DOME> beehive is not as frequent as it needs to be
13:04:00 <Art> Canceling some reservations if anyone needs them
13:04:14 <Art> OF Lodge Cabin without bath 2 Double Beds
13:04:26 <Art> 2 Nights - 5/25/19 & 5/26/19
13:05:02 <Eric> You still going to be in the park?
13:05:15 <Art> Yup
13:05:22 <Art> "Consolidating" reservations is the better word
13:05:37 <Art> I grab what I can and then dump overlap/extra
13:05:50 <Eric> Nice
13:06:17 <Kent> I have wondered about a downbasin static with a satellite internet connection. Way out of my depth here. All I know is what I hear on TV :)
13:06:20 <Eric> So did your reservations from the glitch actually go through and stick?
13:06:36 <Art> It did!
13:06:40 <Art> Confirmation and all
13:06:44 <Eric> Awesome
13:06:48 <Art> So I honestly don't think it was a glitch
13:06:58 <Art> I think the Calendar feature doesn't update as fast as the room finder
13:07:26 <Eric> ahh
13:09:25 <Betty> bulger
13:09:50 <Art> So people probably just cart'd the room, someone picked the room from the calendar finder and then freaked
13:10:08 <Art> OF Lodge Cabin without bath 2 Double Beds
13:10:21 <Art> Arrival Date 5/27/19 Departure Date 5/31/19
13:11:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Hmmm, notice how the video is wavy. I wonder if that is related to the focus problems.
13:11:52 <Art> OK those should be out in the wild if anyone needs them
13:12:20 <ynpvisitor19> Afternoon everyone.What is the consensus on the steam behind the hill directly behind Bulger? Atomizer?
13:14:20 <Art> Kevin L™🌵, My guess is there are some default settings they forgot to set and that the bit rate is to high on top of the focus issue. More employees, more cell saturation, idk, I'm making this all up so yeah ;)
13:16:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I would not be surprised. When the multimedia guy gets back I am sure that it will be adjusted.
13:16:43 <Chancellor> YNP 19 Solitary ?
13:17:20 <ynpvisitor19> I'm on delay and was typing during Bulger.
13:18:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think we would be able to see Atomizer from this cam but we will have to wait until that can be field confirmed. Could be some steam from Artemesia.
13:18:35 <LindaGt1> Chancellor, yes solitary
13:18:43 <ynpvisitor19> What I am asking about is left of Grotto and behind the ridge
13:19:11 <Dave from B™> Yes, my room went thru as well
13:19:40 <Eric> oblong is almost in alignment with bulger
13:19:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave came back.
13:19:50 <Eric> ohhh, WAY back there
13:19:56 <Eric> riverside?
13:20:03 <Betty> riverside
13:20:14 <ynpvisitor19> I was thinking Atomizer Arty, or what ever those streamside geysers past F&M.
13:20:18 <Dave from B™> I close tonight....2.67 hours to go
13:21:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Way back would be the Artemesia area. Just past the snow would be Oblong.
13:21:14 <Eric> wow...bulger is perfectly aligned with arty
13:21:22 <ynpvisitor19> Riverside is right of Grand...
13:21:36 <ynpvisitor117> I think that's Artemisia. I am not at all sure Atomizer is large enough to see any steam.
13:21:37 <Betty> OT ie
13:21:42 <Eric> Just did the map and if you draw a straight line from the cam to arty, it goes directly over bulger
13:22:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Oblong is not on this but Arty lines up with it. https://imgur.com/L8zzFNm
13:23:12 <ynpvisitor37> thought I needed glasses for a minute
13:23:44 <Eric> 19, I meant riverside was IE :-D
13:23:56 <ynpvisitor117> Oblong is not labelled but can easily be identified as a blue pool on the map.
13:24:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Sprinkler looks nice.
13:24:58 <Eric> can camop pan up just a hair?
13:24:58 <ynpvisitor117> Bulger, Oblong and Arty are all closely aligned.
13:25:19 <ynpvisitor19> Eric, I was pretty sure that's what you meant, but I didn't want anyone confused. It is way farther right than I imagined!
13:25:21 <Eric> Yep
13:25:38 <Eric> NP 19 :-D Just wanted to clarify myself
13:26:08 <Eric> that is arty steam behind the trees back there
13:26:28 <Eric> We should be able to easily identify arty eruptions now
13:26:36 <Dave from B™> Hey guys...Bijou is ie:)
13:26:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I think we had one a few days ago.
13:27:04 <LindaGt1> Where is bijou?
13:27:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I want to see an Oblong.
13:27:18 <Eric> right in line with Grand Linda
13:27:20 <Eric> behind it
13:27:31 <LindaGt1> Ok thx
13:27:34 <Dave from B™> We won't see the bottom but we should get a decent look at it
13:27:42 <Eric> That strong steam you see in the center
13:27:57 <CraigC> woohooo, I just got back from buying a trailer
13:28:14 <ynpvisitor19> I love Arty and it's my hubby's favorite. Catching it on cam is huge
13:28:32 <Eric> Arty is a pretty awesome geyser
13:28:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Best cone in the park.
13:28:59 <Eric> Cone?
13:29:14 <LindaGt1> CraigC, 👍
13:29:21 <Eric> Congrats Craig
13:29:30 <LindaGt1> What kind of trailer?
13:29:32 <ynpvisitor19> It was my dad's favorite too, so I've spent many hours there over the years
13:29:42 <CraigC> Jayco 23foot rear bath
13:29:48 <Eric> Nice
13:29:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Love the overlook.
13:30:00 <LindaGt1> My brother had a jayco
13:30:04 <Eric> I have a 33ft Forest River :-D
13:30:15 <ynpvisitor117> Well, Craig, you'll ever be bath-free again!
13:30:28 <CraigC> I have been watching Rockwoods, the 1905, but this was a steal, bank repo
13:30:36 <Eric> Nice
13:30:47 <Eric> Buy it at auction?
13:30:58 <CraigC> Eric, those forest rivers are great quality
13:31:07 <Betty> LC
13:31:14 <CraigC> Eric, no, from the trailer dealership, on consignment
13:31:19 <Eric> Nice
13:31:30 <Eric> I have liked my forest river pretty well
13:31:39 <CraigC> someone else was also there to buy it, I handed over my plastic before them
13:31:39 <Eric> Bought it from a rental company
13:32:51 <CraigC> hey Bruce
13:33:01 <Brucej> hey Craig!
13:34:04 <LindaGt1> Bee splashes
13:34:17 <Brucej> I assume we're watching that YNM trace out the corner's of our bloodshot eyes today...
13:34:27 <LindaGt1> Lion roar
13:34:48 <CraigC> Brucej, I keep scrolling down and checking
13:35:11 <LindaGt1> All the lines are so even
13:35:30 <Brucej> LindaGt1, that'll change...
13:35:41 <LindaGt1> Brucej, 😊
13:36:07 <LindaGt1> Usually there is some kind of little blip
13:37:05 <Brucej> LindaGt1, I think those blips are more often when someone or something is happening nearby. Once the park opens later this week, it may get much more lively.
13:37:42 <CraigC> :lion:
13:37:42 <Betty> Lion
13:37:52 <GO DOME> so where are you going Craig?
13:37:54 <LindaGt1> Delay
13:38:15 <CraigC> GO DOME, may try Moab first, then YNP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13:38:23 <Brucej> Zoom zoom?
13:38:27 <ynpvisitor19> I'm on a tablet and I keep scrolling up and down to the trace so quickly I keep hitting to high and navigating away from here.
13:39:28 <CraigC> what excites me is being able to park it at Norris campground and hang however long I feel like
13:39:47 <LindaGt1> I have mine so when tablet is sideways seismo is on right
13:39:51 <CraigC> or Madison if not in SB window
13:40:00 <Brucej> Craig - 14 days is the Norris limit, right?
13:40:19 <CraigC> 14 is longer than I would feel like :)
13:40:41 <Brucej> I tried 12 last summer. it DID get old :-)
13:41:23 <Ben VL> Are you able to get like a week at a time?
13:41:33 <Brucej> But I was living in a Toyota minivan, so that may have had something to do with it :-)
13:41:36 <CraigC> maybe I could check on storing the trailer somewhere in West for a bit so I could come back home and back up multiple times
13:42:02 <ynpvisitor19> Norris is 1st come. Madison takes reservations
13:42:08 <ChrisO> i think they should remove reservations and do first come first serve
13:42:23 <CraigC> I'd be for half and half
13:42:25 <Brucej> If you arrive at Norris nice and early AM, you can have anywhere from 1 to 14 nights. Payment up front. I suggest a 5:30 am arrival.
13:42:58 <Ben VL> Ok. That's kind what I thought.
13:43:34 <ynpvisitor19> I hate the uncertainty. I'm all for reservations. At least some. Stop in is nice, but 5:30 isn't practical for some.
13:43:43 <GO DOME> wow look at all that green on the prediction board
13:43:46 <Ben VL> My plan was to reserve a night at Madison, and head to Norris first thing the next morning to get the rest of the nights for a trip.
13:43:58 <ynpvisitor19> *drop
13:44:03 <LindaGt1> Ita goi g to get buay
13:44:03 <ChrisO> looks like the snow went poof
13:44:09 <Brucej> Ben VL, That would probably work.
13:44:22 <LindaGt1> Wow made no sense lol
13:44:22 <Betty> Daisy
13:44:34 <LindaGt1> Finally
13:44:42 <GO DOME> and Daisy isnt on the prediction board .. haha
13:44:52 <ChrisO> "Its going to get busy" :)
13:45:08 <LindaGt1> Yes!
13:45:17 <Brucej> Ben VL, are you coming for Norris specifically? If not, Madison might be a better choice - for geysers, it's almost 50% closer to UGB.
13:45:41 <ynpvisitor19> Poor little Daisy has been buried by snow and steam most of the day
13:45:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice to finally find it.
13:46:17 <LindaGt1> Ha! Screenprinted
13:46:19 <Brucej> So Daisy is just right of the tallest Castle tree. That steaming thing to the left must be Comet.
13:46:32 <ynpvisitor19> Madison is lovely. It has zero cell service.
13:46:56 <Ben VL> Oh, I'm all for SB. Giant, Morning, F&M etc... Only if SB is not expected.
13:47:11 <Ben VL> It's been my favorite since I was 7.
13:47:13 <ChrisO> is Yellowstone lake frozen right now?
13:47:20 <Brucej> ynpvisitor19, Norris is about as datablind as Madison.
13:48:10 <Brucej> Well, if camping out for SB is your bag, then Norris is it.
13:48:11 <CraigC> is all of Madison reservations?
13:48:12 <ynpvisitor19> Is it? I haven't even tried to stay there lately.
13:48:40 <ynpvisitor19> Yes Craig.
13:48:45 <CraigC> :(
13:48:51 <Brucej> I have yet to get any cell service near or in Norris, but others have had more success.
13:49:36 <LindaGt1> In OF window
13:49:51 <ynpvisitor19> My hubby is on Verizon and he has service in much of the park. Great for checking predictions
13:49:54 <Dave from B™> Hey...can you all stop talking so I can catch up on chat:D?
13:50:03 <ChrisO> nope
13:50:06 <ChrisO> :)
13:50:15 <Ben VL> Sure.
13:50:17 <LindaGt1> I have Verizon and it does well
13:50:24 <Ben VL> For how long?
13:50:27 <Brucej> I have verizon, for all the good it does me!
13:50:39 <Ben VL> Was that long enough?
13:50:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Window was open.
13:50:50 <Brucej> Ben VL, LOLZ!
13:50:54 <Ben VL> How about now... ?
13:51:02 <ChrisO> Verizon is good unless your in the middle of nowhere
13:51:22 <LindaGt1> Of
13:51:29 <ynpvisitor19> Growing up, family used to exclusively camp and Norris was our favorite
13:52:03 <Brucej> Castle is up next, I hope.
13:52:15 <Dave from B™> pfew...congrats on the camper Craig!
13:53:27 <CraigC> Dave from B™, thanks
13:55:50 <Dave from B™> Did you get an extra bed for me?
13:56:01 <Dave from B™> I am a stalker, you know.
13:56:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Put a cot on the roof Craig.
13:56:44 <ynpvisitor19> Grotto is approximately in the frame where Grand used to be. I keep, "Oh!....oh."
13:57:23 <CraigC> "we have a pool.... and a pond. The pond would be good for you"
13:57:36 <Brucej> Bijou is nice and active today. Fancy that..
13:59:42 <Dave from B™> It's definitely a steam polluter, Bruce
14:00:03 <Brucej> Wow! Just - wow! :-)
14:00:43 <Brucej> CraigC, do I detect Groucho?
14:00:56 <CraigC> Caddyshack
14:01:04 <Brucej> Ah, OK
14:01:07 <CraigC> LOL
14:01:49 <LindaGp> So changing of the guard I have cam. Feel free to remind me when OF is coming up.
14:02:11 <CraigC> bison ie
14:02:24 <LindaGp> Little bison
14:02:35 <Brucej> LindaGp, might be worth a quick swing toward :bee: every once in awhile.
14:02:56 <CraigC> has anyone heard anything about the static cam?
14:03:39 <LindaGp> Ok
14:03:52 <Betty> bulger
14:04:15 <CraigC> nice catch
14:04:22 <LindaGp> That bison is so small
14:04:24 <CraigC> and cool on the Old Tardy
14:05:28 <ynpvisitor19> We no longer have to squint between the tree for OT.
14:05:49 <Betty> maybe Turban
14:05:57 <CraigC> seems like we are going to be able to get more entries on more features with this cam, even though we may miss some on others that we didn't previously
14:06:17 <LindaGp> Is that out at end in center? Past bulger?
14:06:57 <Betty> what? turban?
14:07:10 <LindaGp> Sorry old tardy
14:07:43 <Betty> it is within the bw cicle
14:07:47 <CraigC> Old Tardy is just left of Spasmo
14:07:51 <Dave from B™> If you look at GT in 20 or so years, they will say Dome really picked up in its eruptions in April of 2019
14:07:53 <Betty> circle
14:08:05 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yeah LOL
14:08:08 <Dave from B™> LS will be recorded more as well
14:08:18 <CraigC> and Big Anemone
14:08:25 <Betty> sure
14:08:28 <LindaGp> Oh i thought that was bulger or are they together
14:08:35 <ynpvisitor19> I get a kick out of Spasmatic in person. Not so much on cam
14:09:12 <LindaGp> So bijou is going on right?
14:09:14 <ynpvisitor19> Bulges is on other side of BW.
14:09:21 <CraigC> ynpvisitor19, I do too, I can sit on the boardwalk there and watch all the changes in all the vents
14:09:44 <ChrisO> hey its my buddy again :)
14:09:47 <Brucej> LindaGp, yepp, that be bijou
14:09:52 <ynpvisitor19> Bulger*
14:11:26 <ynpvisitor19> Back in the 2 hour riff delay days, I did spend hours watching Spas
14:11:32 <Brucej> I see some steam over behind Bijou too. I wonder if Grotto Fountain might be getting ready to initiate Grotto.
14:13:23 <LindaGp> Castle starti g
14:13:28 <LindaGp> Castle
14:13:36 <LindaGp> .
14:13:36 <LindaGp> .
14:13:59 <CraigC> teh innerwebs are scary; now I am seeing ads for streaming cams from Canon similar to this one on my Facebook page
14:14:12 <CraigC> :castle:
14:14:38 <CraigC> sprinkler ie
14:14:54 <Dave from B™> Craig, Becca and I often take a steam bath at Spasmodic in the early morning on our way down basin. My favorite little geyser
14:15:17 <CraigC> I hope you wear clothes
14:15:44 <Brucej> I think we'll have a Grotto start really soon.
14:15:49 <ynpvisitor19> Yikes! Brain bleach
14:16:05 <Dave from B™> I take off my glasses as well
14:16:12 <CraigC> LOL
14:16:16 <Dave from B™> 19, that could explain a lot!
14:16:50 <Betty> time to head out, have a great evening all
14:17:13 <LindaGp> Night
14:17:17 <CraigC> cya Betty
14:17:30 <Eric> Night Betty
14:17:57 <LindaGp> Why does castle look small, weird
14:18:19 <Dave from B™> Nite Betty
14:18:38 <CraigC> significant angle change in perspective, closer and higher
14:18:41 <GO DOME> Bruce - not sure if thats steam from Giants cone
14:19:02 <ynpvisitor19> My image keeps freezing...
14:19:05 <GO DOME> all the geysers look smaller now Linda
14:19:30 <Dave from B™> Graham, you have your glasses on the wrong way
14:19:38 <Brucej> Bijou is at Giant's cone - I am looking to the upper left behind the trees...isn;t that Grotto? It was yesterday...
14:19:40 <CraigC> my feed is a little choppy, too
14:19:50 <CraigC> Dave from B™, hahaha
14:20:06 <ynpvisitor19> Forshortening. We are looking down. That's why the bison looks small
14:20:09 <LindaGp> Cam is choppy too
14:20:45 <GO DOME> Dave i am still sore from yestredays game
14:20:56 <Brucej> The steamcloud I am calling Grotto just began about 20 minutes ago.
14:21:04 <CraigC> can we do a quick look at BH and then back?
14:21:25 <Brucej> CraigC, Ditto on what Craig said.
14:21:43 <CraigC> thanks
14:21:52 <CraigC> that's all
14:23:06 <CraigC> with static we could have caught all the domes today
14:23:43 <Brucej> We might have another Lion lurking too.
14:24:19 <CraigC> sometimes the lion steam creeps into static, also
14:27:16 <LindaGp> How's that we can keep track of grand and lion nd watch castle
14:27:41 <ynpvisitor19> Linda, :thumbsup:
14:27:50 <Brucej> Looks like :castle: is a major
14:28:35 <LindaGp> Hard to line up
14:28:53 <CraigC> Kevin, are you here?
14:30:25 <Brucej> Castle is a major for sure. Hope someone posts it so the prediction for Castle can update.
14:31:26 <LindaGp> Ok updated
14:31:31 <Dave from B™> Graham, I'm hoping your series goes at least 6. Need to wear you guys out.
14:31:56 <Brucej> LindaGp, Thanks! :thumbsup:
14:32:31 <Dave from B™> CraigC, probably chicken feeding time
14:33:37 <Brucej> :bhi: anybody?
14:34:32 <Ben VL> Don't think it's due.
14:34:37 <Dave from B™> Is that a present for me, Bruce?
14:34:58 <Brucej> Ben VL, Beehive at 1658? getting close.
14:35:01 <ynpvisitor19> I'm off for a while. Enjoy the views!
14:35:27 <LindaGp> Bye
14:35:49 <Eric> I wouldn't count on the BH guess shown on this page.
14:36:17 <Ben VL> Last few have been close to or over 20 hours, and the last one was around 2 this morning. I'm thinking closer to midnight.
14:36:24 <Eric> Oh boy, we are going to get to see lots of Bison/Human interaction with this new webcam!
14:36:36 <Brucej> OK, will disregard. We saw some BH splashes earlier, but that can go on awhile. Roger on the midnight.
14:37:05 <Eric> Yep, currently at 14h, average has been around 24h lately
14:37:06 <Dave from B™> The earliest I would guess for BH would be 2130...but Ben's estimate makes more sense
14:37:36 <Eric> +- 4h
14:38:17 <LindaGp> How about inswitch to Bh to grand view
14:39:00 <LindaGp> How's That?
14:39:49 <Brucej> Once the park opens, it might be a kind gesture to redo the bh algorithm for a current interval.
14:40:10 <Brucej> LindaGp, That's a great view!
14:40:13 <Ben VL> However, I would not be opposed to a wintertime 9h no indy to get it going in the daytime sooner.
14:40:37 <ChrisO> where did that bison wander off to
14:41:32 <LindaGp> It's been nighttime for a few days time to come back to light soon I hope
14:42:36 <Dave from B™> First daytime BH will be on Opening Day?
14:43:55 <GO DOME> Joe has it programed to erupt on "his shift"
14:43:56 <Dave from B™> I can't wait to start receiving Fountain reports to see what's happening with Morning
14:45:12 <Dave from B™> I bet Maureen is itching to get there
14:46:31 <LindaGp> Lion
14:47:14 <ynpvisitor80> Yay Lion
14:48:10 <Dave from B™> :)
14:48:22 <Dave from B™> people at Lion
14:48:50 <GO DOME> not sure if Bill said he would get to download the Ftn and Morning loggers or not?
14:48:51 <Dave from B™> I love being able to see the bw on GH. It is much easier to know where you are.
14:49:01 <Dave from B™> I didn't see an answer
14:49:34 <Eric> Nice
14:49:41 <GO DOME> i wonder when maintenance will repair the boardwalk too so it can be reopened
14:50:04 <ynpvisitor80> I don't see people at Lion
14:50:07 <ChrisO> this summer sometime lol
14:50:15 <ynpvisitor80> I see signposts
14:50:32 <Dave from B™> I thought I saw 2 but it may be spots on my glasses
14:51:00 <Dave from B™> Linda, can I have a Lion zoom to see if I need to clean my glasses?:)
14:51:03 <ChrisO> so signs look like people, and bush's look like bison :)
14:51:17 <GO DOME> you are getting old Dave, time for new glasses
14:51:49 <Dave from B™> I just got new glasses!
14:51:56 <GO DOME> told you
14:52:00 <Eric> New Eye Doctor maybe?
14:52:01 <Brucej> :D
14:52:03 <Dave from B™> I need an even larger monitor
14:52:21 <Brucej> 3D immersive monitor
14:55:11 <ynpvisitor4> No Grand yet?
14:55:21 <ynpvisitor4> Did we miss it?
14:55:30 <Brucej> No :grand: yet!
14:55:37 <LindaGp> No grand yet
14:55:40 <ynpvisitor4> Thanks Bruce
14:56:23 <ynpvisitor4> Another 7 hour interval so soon
14:58:11 <ynpvisitor21> Dave broke grand' again
14:58:43 <Dave from B™> That usually happens a little closer to my trip to UGB
14:58:44 <ynpvisitor37> broken for opening day, boo
14:58:58 <Eric> I wonder if we missed it
14:59:10 <Eric> I would not be surprised
14:59:28 <ynpvisitor37> seems steamy there
14:59:36 <LindaGp> We've been watching since last OF
14:59:46 <ynpvisitor21> looks turbany
14:59:58 <ynpvisitor37> hopefully sign of full pool.
15:00:42 <ynpvisitor21> They need to put in a pool float on a pole. when the pool fills a flag goes up and we can see it.
15:00:50 <ynpvisitor37> good spot
15:01:13 <LindaGp> Now we can complain about castle steam
15:01:45 <ynpvisitor21> It like the lens though.
15:02:20 <ynpvisitor37> looking closer, it looks quiet
15:02:49 <Eric> or rifty
15:03:21 <ynpvisitor37> possibly Rift steam past bw
15:03:45 <LindaGp> Grand
15:04:01 <ynpvisitor37> YEAH
15:04:02 <ynpvisitor47> Nice start
15:04:24 <ynpvisitor37> my feed is choppy
15:04:52 <Eric> woot
15:04:57 <Eric> guess we didn't miss it :-D
15:05:21 <Eric> and I doubted you guys :-P
15:05:30 <ynpvisitor37> Wonder if that was a Grand start
15:05:49 <Eric> We can probably tell from this angle
15:05:56 <Eric> If the feed is smooth
15:06:05 <LindaGp> Cam is choppy
15:06:13 <ynpvisitor37> thanks
15:06:25 <Eric> But I missed the start
15:06:29 <ynpvisitor37> there will be people in the way before too long
15:06:35 <GO DOME> more likely we will know if its a turban start seeing it before Grand but much harder to tell if its a Grand sdtart
15:06:43 <ynpvisitor37> well you thought it had already gone Eric!
15:07:09 <ynpvisitor37> I did not see much steam, that was why I mentioned Grand start, lack of Turban steam
15:07:14 <Eric> I didn't think it had, I just assumed it could have
15:07:27 <ynpvisitor37> just kidding you
15:07:31 <Eric> :-D
15:07:41 <GO DOME> yes, but Turban might splash and then Grand goes up ... would be hard to know
15:07:49 <Eric> All good...such a learning process with a new camera position
15:08:04 <CraigC> is sprinkler going?
15:08:05 <Eric> True Graham
15:08:14 <ynpvisitor37> a lot of people hang out on that bw in summer
15:08:16 <Eric> Sprinkler is almost always going
15:08:22 <CraigC> yeah LOL
15:08:45 <ynpvisitor37> yes GO DOME, I was only speculating, I wonder if...from this particular situation
15:08:57 <ynpvisitor47> Good show
15:09:00 <LindaGp> Little clearer? Hate when out of focus
15:09:12 <ynpvisitor37> that is good
15:09:32 <ynpvisitor37> stay there and we can watch for the second if it pauses
15:09:39 <ynpvisitor21> I am holding out for sawmill'.
15:10:06 <ynpvisitor37> uncertain would be so fun from here
15:10:10 <GO DOME> hopefully sometime in the 2020's
15:10:14 <ynpvisitor37> come back Sawmill
15:10:14 <LindaGp> Looks so much better on your stream, cam doesn't look as good
15:10:42 <Eric> Yes, they should just remove the control cam view
15:10:46 <ynpvisitor37> this spot is in focus on stream
15:11:01 <Eric> They could have so much more bandwidth for a better streaming image!
15:11:12 <LindaGp> We will just make it for OF window
15:11:29 <GO DOME> the lag on stream is terrible when driving the cam tho Eric. been there done that dont want to again
15:11:30 <ynpvisitor37> is it easy to increase band width there?
15:11:46 <Eric> Ohhh, that makes sense Graham
15:11:58 <Eric> Easy Yes...cheap NO
15:12:30 <GO DOME> haha easy no cheap no
15:12:36 <ynpvisitor37> seems like a good investment
15:12:55 <GO DOME> pause ... early enoigh?
15:12:57 <Eric> Actually it would be pretty easy for them to tie more copper in the bundle
15:12:58 <LindaGp> 2nd
15:13:04 <Eric> boom
15:13:28 <ynpvisitor37> 2nd bursts are awesome from here
15:13:28 <Eric> I don't think the park service would have to do anything, other than pay centurylink more $$$$
15:14:15 <Eric> That is if centurylink even has the copper available to add more lines
15:14:29 <GO DOME> i dont know how their service is connected
15:14:32 <Eric> But I would be they do
15:14:37 <ynpvisitor37> well that was fun
15:14:49 <Eric> It's just T1 lines graham...copper wires
15:14:53 <GO DOME> willwe get a 3rd this year?
15:14:55 <ynpvisitor37> I would think increasing bandwidth around OF might become a priority
15:15:01 <ynpvisitor21> With the cry for more cell bandwidth, I would expect fiber to come in one day.
15:15:03 <Eric> The more you have, the fatter the bandwidth
15:15:08 <ynpvisitor37> yes, we will get 3 bursts this season
15:15:34 <Eric> I hope so 37
15:15:42 <ynpvisitor37> great timing for the move to OF too
15:15:44 <GO DOME> copper to where tho?
15:15:50 <ynpvisitor37> that worked out well
15:15:58 <Eric> I think they said that copper runs down to jackson hole
15:16:12 <GO DOME> do they hve any spare copper>
15:16:28 <GO DOME> thats a ong customer upgrade if not
15:16:39 <ynpvisitor21> If it is like mine, half of it is rotten.
15:16:42 <GO DOME> long
15:16:57 <Eric> Well, considering it use to be 1 phone = 1 copper pair, with digital communcations, they can do things much more efficiently now
15:17:16 <ynpvisitor21> On short runs.
15:17:53 <GO DOME> not sure how Xanterra and DN get their bandwidth either
15:18:00 <GO DOME> and YF
15:18:16 <Eric> I assume the same way as the cam
15:18:19 <GO DOME> and the gas company
15:18:27 <Eric> DSL or T1
15:18:42 <ynpvisitor21> Phone on copper, credit card readers on dish.
15:18:52 <Eric> or frame relay
15:18:53 <GO DOME> yeah all higher priorities for more bandwidth i bet
15:19:23 <Eric> I think a high bandwidth wireless carrier would be ideal for the basin
15:19:23 <GO DOME> Xanterra would probably like to sell more internet access
15:19:55 <GO DOME> i have not tried it in the snow lodge
15:20:17 <Eric> No wires or trenches in the basin
15:21:18 <ChrisO> speaking of no wires or trenches, really glad NASA got there idea slapped down...
15:22:15 <Lori S> I believe Bob told me Hughes Net is at the dorms. I am checking with him right now.
15:23:07 <GO DOME> need cheap satcom
15:23:32 <ynpvisitor37> hughes net is satellite right?
15:24:18 <Lori S> yes, satellite, waiting for him to text back
15:26:12 <ynpvisitor21> It sounds like Centrurylink has fiber in Gardiner and West Yellowstone. Found a document asking for permission to cross some river in Montana dated 2011.
15:26:26 <Lori S> He confirmed with a "pretty sure" that Delaware North dorms have Huges Net for internet and DirecTV for TV. He has no clue about Xanterra.
15:26:37 <ynpvisitor21> The purpose was to provide better service to the park.
15:27:39 <Lori S> Wait. I missed Grand? I looked away only briefly.
15:27:50 <Lori S> sigh
15:28:01 <Dave from B™> Have a great evening everyone! Time to close the market. GO ISLES!!!
15:28:06 <ynpvisitor21> Missed the first and second grand. it were a 2 fer
15:28:09 <GO DOME> cant text and gaze Lori, not safe
15:28:30 <Steph> Bye Dave! Have a good night!
15:28:41 <Lori S> Haha. I was actually on Facebook reading a response from Mr Quinn about the temp of the Inn lobby.
15:28:50 <LindaGp> OF
15:28:52 <ynpvisitor21> Enjoy your rice cakes and yogurt.
15:28:55 <Lori S> By Dave
15:29:33 <Lori S> of course it was a 2 fer since I missed it
15:29:54 <GO DOME> GO ISLES, hope you sweep up tonight
15:30:57 <LindaGp> I'll check on GH and then go down basin for daisy
15:31:10 <LindaGp> After OF
15:31:23 <Lori S> The 10 degrees factoid is NOT in the Commentary Handbook and he has heard it but does not believe it to be true. When I be wrong, I say I be wrong. :)
15:32:10 <Lori S> And now I will quit beating that dead horse. LOL
15:34:24 <ynpvisitor37> good to have confirmed Lori, always good to get other opinions
15:34:43 <ynpvisitor47> Thermal lag. Inside a closed building it can be considerably colder mid-morning and warmer after sunset than it is outside.
15:35:24 <Lori S> That's about what he said, only in three times as much detail.
15:36:02 <ynpvisitor37> of cours
15:36:07 <ynpvisitor37> course
15:36:10 <Lori S> Said he doesn't know where the factoid came from, which means it didn't come from Ruth. :)
15:36:35 <LindaGp> Ok lion and daisy watch
15:37:33 <Eric> rift?
15:38:20 <ynpvisitor37> there is Daisy
15:38:41 <ynpvisitor37> oops, forgot about Castle steam
15:39:21 <LindaGp> Might be hard to see daisy
15:39:23 <ynpvisitor37> glad storm is almost past
15:39:25 <Eric> Hi Lori
15:40:03 <LindaGp> When it gets closer maybe I'll move down closer to daisy
15:40:14 <Lori S> Hi Eric
15:45:06 <GO DOME> lc?
15:45:27 <LindaGp> Yed
15:45:31 <GO DOME> :)
15:45:50 <LindaGp> Plan u enter making dinner 😁
15:46:16 <LindaGp> *can
15:48:20 <LindaGp> Thx
15:52:18 <LindaGp> Lion
15:52:46 <LindaGp> Roar
16:06:41 <LindaGp> Daisy
16:07:50 <Eric> yep
16:07:58 <LindaGp> Hard to see with castle
16:08:15 <Eric> Bank is a frequent erupter out there too
16:08:24 <Eric> to the right
16:09:24 <GO DOME> dont tell Linda ...she wil have to catch them all too
16:09:45 <GO DOME> sprinkler, dome. lc, bank, solitary .. arghhhh
16:09:52 <GO DOME> mc
16:10:08 <GO DOME> bulger now
16:10:19 <Eric> old tardy?
16:10:27 <GO DOME> yes
16:10:38 <Eric> Nice eruption
16:10:56 <CraigC> awesome
16:11:06 <Eric> I always wondered how people could tell the difference between old tardy and bulger from the old cam
16:11:12 <CraigC> OT is one of my new faves
16:11:15 <LindaGp> Is bulger in middle over that little tree?
16:11:19 <Eric> They were both behind the same tree
16:11:25 <GO DOME> it quit
16:11:40 <GO DOME> bulger is omn other side of the boardwalk
16:11:45 <CraigC> bulger is left of the boardwalks
16:11:47 <GO DOME> near the Grand walkway tree
16:11:48 <LindaGp> 😔
16:12:06 <CraigC> Old Tardy is in themiddle of the boardwalk circle
16:12:25 <LindaGp> What do i have centered over little tree that is spouting
16:12:32 <CraigC> Old tardy
16:12:57 <GO DOME> yep, thats OT
16:12:57 <LindaGp> Oh thats it been looking for it
16:13:06 <CraigC> there is another boardwalk out of view to the right of Old Tardy
16:13:16 <LindaGp> Ok so then I know where bulger is
16:13:20 <GO DOME> it can be frequent, but not alwys
16:13:41 <CraigC> guess that bw to the right is in view
16:18:31 <LindaGp> Snow and lc
16:18:49 <LindaGp> And marmo
16:18:57 <LindaGp> Marmot
16:20:45 <LindaGp> Solitary
16:22:01 <LindaGp> Is this little squirt?
16:24:29 <LindaGp> DOME
16:24:59 <GO DOME> :thumbsup:
16:25:35 <LindaGp> Is that little squirt lower left
16:26:21 <CraigC> I think it is either Big Anemone or Improbable, but Betty knows them
16:26:50 <GO DOME> improbable
16:27:00 <LindaGp> Thx
16:27:03 <CraigC> ...and Graham
16:27:30 <GO DOME> LS is in line with Dome from here
16:27:38 <GO DOME> or in that direction anyway
16:34:15 <LindaGp> Did not quit
16:35:25 <LindaGp> Marmot reall active
16:35:33 <GO DOME> MC
16:36:19 <GO DOME> btw - improbably splashes up and down almost continuously, it didnt have a reportable eruption tho
16:36:35 <LindaGp> I entered one at 8:18 How often is it
16:36:45 <GO DOME> almost continuous
16:36:54 <GO DOME> if you see it going 6' then thats a big deal
16:36:59 <LindaGp> Ah
16:37:15 <GO DOME> its like Lion splashing for hours ... not reported
16:37:20 <LindaGp> 😊
16:37:28 <GO DOME> or the little LC spritzes
16:37:42 <GO DOME> you see water but not really erupting
16:37:50 <GO DOME> Improbablye eruptions are very rare
16:37:54 <LindaGp> Peep
16:38:24 <GO DOME> so it should have a comment on the entry or not be there
16:38:35 <ChrisO> thats the first time ive seen one of those :)
16:38:37 <LindaGp> I entered improbable
16:39:25 <LindaGp> What Kind of come t, that we saw water?
16:39:44 <GO DOME> that it was doing its normal small splashes
16:40:00 <GO DOME> otherwise people might think it erupted
16:40:14 <LindaGp> So I should delete
16:40:34 <CraigC> let me and Graham each red flag it
16:40:57 <LindaGp> Want to test your red flags
16:41:03 <GO DOME> i guess they have listed minors to 1.5'
16:41:04 <ynpvisitor38> If you see water to the height of a person then Improbable would be erupting
16:41:05 <CraigC> uh huh
16:41:28 <LindaGp> I'll delete
16:41:36 <GO DOME> just look at the historical eruptions logged
16:41:41 <LindaGp> Gone
16:41:53 <GO DOME> two flags would delete it Craig
16:42:23 <CraigC> GO DOME, yeah, the red flags seem like a more exciting way to get rid of it
16:42:40 <LindaGp> More dramatic hehe
16:42:45 <CraigC> LOL
16:43:03 <GO DOME> thanks Linda - if you see it surging much more than splashing them a minor would be good. theres a major with a 20-25' comment
16:43:10 <LindaGp> Almost OF time
16:43:19 <LindaGp> Bug
16:43:28 <CraigC> insect ie
16:43:59 <LindaGp> GO DOME, 👍
16:44:09 <GO DOME> SB almost at 8 days
16:44:23 <CraigC> what about the "ini" on Dome? wasn't the initial this morning?
16:44:52 <Steph> See you all tomorrow!
16:45:16 <CraigC> cya Steph
16:45:36 <LindaGp> Bye
16:46:12 <LindaGp> I entered do me first thing but it was first light so it could have been going in dark
16:46:52 <GO DOME> based on the intervals i dont think it was the initial. there are ususlly multiple in the teens
16:46:58 <LindaGp> *dome
16:47:15 <GO DOME> if you look at the last 140 dome times, on 9 Feb (page 7) you see an initial and long sequence
16:47:33 <LindaGp> Lc
16:47:53 <GO DOME> it was 5 or more hours before the intervals reached 22m
16:48:38 <GO DOME> use this link and go to page 7 http://geysertimes.org/geyser.php?id=Dome&n=140
16:49:33 <LindaGp> I'm slow I hit ini on dome instead of webcam fixed it
16:50:25 <GO DOME> Craig - did that make sense?
16:53:09 <CraigC> GO DOME, yes, I read about Dome in TSB's book this morning to understand the cycle, so that is why I asked about the "ini", and you clarified it
16:54:45 <CraigC> and now we're all good :)
16:54:58 <CraigC> thanks, Linda
16:55:37 <GO DOME> its interesting to see the data, how the intervals lengthen. we have some good long series captured on GT over the years but its hard to keep the runs going
16:56:18 <CraigC> if static hadn't gone down, we probably could have caught every Dome eruption today
16:59:28 <LindaGp> OF
17:05:06 <Art> GO DOME, TB is 20 mins from golfing
17:10:40 <ynpvisitor43> If they can’t get a puck in that big net, how will they get a ball in that little hole?
17:13:42 <LindaGp> Lion
17:14:40 <Michael> Nice!
17:14:52 <LindaGp> Is this an imo?
17:14:57 <LindaGp> Looks like it
17:15:18 <LindaGp> *ini
17:15:52 <Michael> It's not an initial. Based on GT, it's eruption #5 in the series (we must have missed eruption #4)
17:16:03 <LindaGp> Ok
17:16:21 <LindaGp> Maybe during of one went off
17:18:08 <GO DOME> Yellowstone Forever should know better "The Ear Spring eruption was part of a series of changes last summer in thermal features in the UGB, including a record number of eruptions by the fickle and inscrutible Steamboat Geyser"
17:18:18 <GO DOME> since when was Steamboat in the UGB?
17:20:18 <Michael> Ugh.
17:21:38 <Michael> I'd also say that neither Steamboat's resurgence nor the Geyser Hill surge happened last summer.
17:22:58 <Art> Y4Eva has become a sad joke
17:23:12 <Art> Name is beyond terrible
17:24:59 <GO DOME> agree the name is stupid
17:25:48 <Art> Maybe GOSA can hire the same PR firm. Change the name to Geysers 4 Life!
17:27:38 <Art> Board of directors has some interesting characters
17:27:39 <Art> https://www.yellowstone.org/who-we-are/board/
17:42:43 <LindaGp> Dome
17:43:20 <Michael> Anemone
17:44:32 <LindaGp> Nice light
18:03:54 <Michael> Camera down. Right in middle of Marmot Cave too.
18:04:05 <LindaGp> Yup
18:05:29 <LindaGp> Back
18:07:37 <ynpvisitor43> Looks like sepia
18:08:29 <Michael> Must be some sunset pink washing over the basin.
18:09:07 <LindaGp> I think maybe NG WAS just steaming
18:12:08 <ynpvisitor70> Woohoo
18:14:50 <LindaGp> Looks like grove back there steaming
18:15:52 <LindaGp> Grove
18:15:53 <Michael> Sure does.
18:16:08 <ynpvisitor19> I think the reason we haven't seen it lately is because it's behind a tree now.
18:16:09 <LindaGp> Yay
18:16:27 <LindaGp> I'm entering it
18:17:12 <Michael> I'm not sure it's erupting...everything gets kind of steamy in the evening.
18:17:38 <Michael> I keep thinking Depression is starting, but it hasn't yet.
18:18:00 <LindaGp> ☹ oh ok 😉
18:18:39 <LindaGp> Marmot s going good
18:19:10 <LindaGp> OF soon
18:19:24 <LindaGp> Well at least I know where grove is
18:19:40 <Michael> Then I hope Lion either hurries up or waits a while.
18:20:30 <Brucej> Hi, Guys - has anyone seen Aurum recently?
18:20:45 <LindaGp> No no havemt
18:20:55 <Michael> Not as far as I know.
18:23:08 <Brucej> The focus is really off. I wonder if the camera is set on manual focus and the thing is just maladjusted. If it were autofocus, or the manual focus were set on infinity or something like 500 meters, it should look much better at all magnifications and all lighting.
18:23:52 <Brucej> Grove certainly looks like it still has some energy in it.
18:24:02 <LindaGp> Gotta go to OF
18:25:45 <Brucej> Lotta steam over near Doublet pool a second ago.
18:26:14 <LindaGp> OF
18:26:23 <Michael> I hope focus can be fixed, and it's just a matter of someone being on hand to make the adjustment.
18:26:35 <LindaGp> Just made it
18:27:33 <Brucej> Pretty! Those Lodge lights certainly contrast with the muted twilight earthtones, eh?
18:31:04 <LindaGp> Lion
18:31:54 <LindaGp> The force is with me tonight 😊
18:32:24 <Brucej> I think we may have an Aurum about 5 minutes ago. There was massive steam just in front of it, and I;m not sure what else would have done that over there.
18:33:13 <LindaGp> Thatnsteam tonight?
18:33:32 <LindaGp> No that steam to right?
18:33:36 <Brucej> Is there a way to lok back at prior footage?
18:33:59 <Brucej> Might be Doublet - it just looked a lot heavier.
18:34:10 <LindaGp> I dont have that ability
18:34:28 <Brucej> Probably none of us do.
18:34:51 <Michael> I wait for GOSA to post them on Youtube late in the day.
18:34:54 <Brucej> BTW, you do a great job, Linda.
18:35:03 <LindaGp> Joe does because he records. Gosa rerun in morning
18:35:16 <Brucej> Michael, yeah. might be our only way.
18:35:20 <LindaGp> Brucej, thank you!
18:37:17 <Michael> Can we check on Daisy for a minute?
18:38:52 <Brucej> That's a mass of steam down Oblong way.
18:40:37 <ynpvisitor19> It sure is!
18:40:46 <Brucej> Everything's getting steamy now.
18:41:55 <ynpvisitor19> The light is gorgeous
18:42:34 <Brucej> sun just set.
18:43:08 <ynpvisitor43> Slow moving steam
18:43:21 <Brucej> Lotta moonlight tonight if the clouds cooperate.
18:45:31 <LindaGp> COME ON daisy
18:46:11 <Brucej> Looks like it's trying
18:46:42 <Brucej> Crested Pool really covers Daisy up.
18:46:54 <LindaGp> If that would you could leave on wide for by and grand
18:47:24 <LindaGp> *BH
18:48:33 <Michael> I'm happy to give up on Daisy if folks are getting antsy about BH and/or North Goggle.
18:49:16 <Brucej> I think DAISY is still awhile yet.
18:49:22 <LindaGp> Im eager to go ro bed. 😊
18:50:09 <Brucej> I'm OK witH anything you want to aim AT.
18:53:07 <LindaGp> I think thats it beehive to grand
18:53:25 <Brucej> Looks good. What time zone you in, Linda?
18:54:02 <LindaGp> Eastern time, have a good night
18:54:21 <Brucej> Good night! Sweet dreamns.
18:54:43 <LindaGp> Thx, of course bee is steaming
18:55:17 <ynpvisitor64> Thanks Linda
18:55:46 <ynpvisitor19> Good night, and thanks for being a cam opp!
18:56:23 <LindaGp> 👍thx
18:57:00 <Brucej> Good night, folks. I'm out in CA, but gotta get up oily. Bye.
18:57:46 <ynpvisitor41> is that grand ie?
18:58:51 <Brucej> ynpvisitor41, don't think so, window not open yet.
18:58:54 <ynpvisitor19> No 41. Everything is putting out enormous amounts of steam tonight.
19:03:24 <ChrisO> the red spot is back :)
19:05:42 <ChrisO> ...referring to a hot pixel lol
19:17:37 <ynpvisitor19> I love how the static decided to update now it is dark...
19:18:30 <Michael> Yeah. finally started working at 20:something. Pretty sure it was after Old Faithful had already gone.
19:19:55 <Michael> I'm heading out after Lion's next eruption or attempt. So Beehive should be good to go in an hour.
19:20:14 <ynpvisitor19> Truly better late than never.
19:21:49 <ynpvisitor19> I love these bright moon nights! I also love the longer daylight.
19:36:07 <Michael> Riverside ie.
19:50:32 <Michael> Lion
20:48:44 <ynpvisitor47> Looks Grand
20:48:51 <ynpvisitor47> ie
20:49:25 <ynpvisitor47> 4 min ago per gt
20:52:58 <ynpvisitor84> is that a 2nd on Grand?
20:53:27 <ynpvisitor47> sorry, not watching
20:54:12 <ynpvisitor84> ok - I think it is. The capture will tell if it is a second.
20:56:46 <ynpvisitor47> Daisy? or something else?
20:57:08 <ynpvisitor47> DOes not look far enough vback
20:58:15 <ynpvisitor84> I don't know. I am a casual viewer& not used to all the views on the new cam position.
21:02:06 <ynpvisitor47> That is lion or lc on the right
21:02:29 <ynpvisitor47> Lion per GT
21:02:49 <ynpvisitor47> Daisy was 8 min ago per
21:02:52 <ynpvisitor47> GT
21:03:07 <ynpvisitor84> Joe is the best at catching geysers at night!
21:03:32 <ynpvisitor47> I am hoping for a early bee'
21:04:44 <ynpvisitor84> that would be nice, since it seems to erupt once a day, at the moment.
21:10:34 <ynpvisitor47> It will be in daylight by Easter I think.
21:11:49 <ynpvisitor47> By the ay, it is fuzzy because focus is not working right yet, but on the very right is bee'.
21:12:19 <ynpvisitor47> I guess the tree points to it, I use the run off lines that also point to it.
21:12:34 <ynpvisitor84> We just have to wait a bit till the person who can fix it is available.
21:13:11 <ynpvisitor47> I hear they are in Aruba or some other place.
21:13:54 <ynpvisitor47> I find if I squint, it is better.
21:14:04 <ynpvisitor84> I am not sure. I read that they will be here around 21 of April.
21:14:47 <ynpvisitor47> Not sur eif we are getting steam, or just odd cam thing.
21:15:28 <ynpvisitor84> It looks like steam and if BH Indy goes off, Joe or someone else will catch it.
21:15:56 <ynpvisitor47> Being ignorant I would think being the same model cam, you would just clone the settings from the old one and fix the presets.
21:16:39 <ynpvisitor47> Could be bubblers? Or just wishful thinking
21:16:50 <ynpvisitor84> I'm ignorant too, but the presets on old cam were for a staight look downbasin. This is a different angle.
21:18:09 <ynpvisitor47> why I said fix the presets, but the cam programing one would think would be the same. But i remember somethign about the driving software was different, if it was a correct comment
21:18:41 <ynpvisitor47> It could be different firm ware so things are different.
21:18:52 <ynpvisitor84> I think you're right 47, if I remember right.
21:19:09 <ynpvisitor47> I am happy with it so no complaints. Other then poor Daisy'.
21:20:04 <ynpvisitor84> No complaints here either.
21:35:38 <ynpvisitor92> Amazing the sky is blue, it is black out west. Maybe a early sunrise?
21:36:27 <ynpvisitor84> No it's an amazing night vision camera. There is a 93% waxing moon shining birght.
21:36:39 <ynpvisitor84> *bright
21:37:50 <ynpvisitor92> One would think the stars would be brighter.
21:38:21 <ynpvisitor84> It's the moonlight that dulls the stars brightness.
21:46:08 <ynpvisitor92> Well, no bee' for me.
21:46:40 <ynpvisitor84> Take care and sleep well.
