01:57:45 <CraigC> Mornin, Joe
01:58:13 <Joe> hi Craig
01:59:01 <CraigC> riverside looks good for this time
02:00:48 <Joe> Yes I was hoping to catch OF, but need to keep watching Bee and Grand
02:17:41 <Joe> Got it
02:18:28 <ynpvisitor117> Pretty impressive knighttime video.
02:18:37 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
02:19:15 <Joe> Must be Kevin
02:19:28 <ynpvisitor117> Yep
02:21:17 <CraigC> old people that can't sleep
02:21:42 <Joe> :):)
02:21:53 <CraigC> grand?
02:22:39 <Joe> Not yet I think
02:22:49 <CraigC> just normal nighttime steam?
02:23:24 <Joe> Looked like a Turban?
02:26:13 <Joe> If those clouds cover the moon we wont see nothing
02:27:36 <Joe> Grand
02:27:42 <Joe> .
02:27:44 <Joe> .
02:29:30 <Joe> Hard to get the cam to move just a little bit
02:30:22 <ynpvisitor106> Wish there were minor adjustment buttons.
02:37:30 <ynpvisitor106> This should set Grand up for the start of my shift.
02:37:57 <Joe> And now the dilemma, Castle or Bee?
02:39:28 <ynpvisitor106> I think I would go for BH. Way due and shorter duration than Castle.
02:43:16 <ynpvisitor106> It appears this cam does dark better than the tree cam.
02:58:46 <LindaG> Good morning
02:59:18 <Joe> Hi linda
02:59:29 <LindaG> Hi jow
02:59:36 <LindaG> Or Joe lol
03:00:12 <CraigC> hey Linda
03:00:29 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
03:01:00 <LindaG> Werent we just here?
03:08:50 <Rice> Anything exciting happen overnight?
03:09:25 <CraigC> Joe caught lots
03:15:33 <LindaG> Oh maybe a daylight bee
03:19:20 <LindaG> CraigC, we saw grove steaming last night around sunset
03:20:28 <Joe> Castil ie, (I think)
03:22:01 <CraigC> LindaG, how cool, I will watch for it now that I know where
03:22:45 <CraigC> this new viewpoint of GH has me way more addicted to this than before
03:24:01 <LindaG> 😊 seems we can see more they are just smaller. If they can fix zoom it would be very cool!
03:24:14 <CraigC> and I am learning about features that I have walked past countless times without giving a second thought
03:25:27 <LindaG> Poor OF must feel left out
03:29:06 <Joe> Next Daisy ~0605
03:29:57 <Joe> It will be missed If OF takes it"s time
03:32:30 <LindaG> I think the next to the last OF last night was a short I had as long. The next OF went at beginning of window. Should I change it or just leave it?
03:34:20 <Joe> Can't tell much about Castle, might just be steaming
03:35:20 <LindaG> It's so small now it makes it harder. To me it looked like steam.
03:41:03 <Joe> Steam lower right on river, what is that?
03:41:59 <CraigC> Blue Star maybe
03:42:54 <CraigC> or do you mean further right at edge of screen?
03:43:36 <Joe> No it is what you said or Chinese spring?
03:43:43 <CraigC> maybe I am off and the furthest right is blue star and the closer is Chinese
03:44:58 <Joe> OF window
03:45:32 <CraigC> good timing
03:46:08 <Joe> pure luck!
03:46:35 <Joe> Now we will catch Daisy.
03:46:45 <LindaG> Pretty
03:52:29 <Joe> 10 min to Daisy
03:53:03 <Joe> Bee is alive!!
03:53:32 <LindaG> 😊 kind of you to give it up
03:55:27 <LindaG> Joe did you see my comment above about OF?
03:56:06 <Joe> No what?
03:57:13 <LindaG> New t to last OF last night I think was short but I had as long. Should I change it. Next OF went off at beginning of window.
03:57:25 <LindaG> *next
03:57:35 <Joe> My chat keeps going blank
03:58:17 <LindaG> Looks like castle now
03:58:30 <LindaG> Castle
03:59:12 <Joe> It is good as a long 1h 28min interval is a long
03:59:45 <LindaG> Ok
04:00:04 <LindaG> Just entered castle
04:02:12 <Joe> Daisy in ~4min
04:07:17 <Joe> Daisy
04:07:55 <Joe> Linda, are you camop today?
04:14:12 <Joe> LC ie
04:16:16 <Joe> Looks like we will have a daytime BEE!! :)
04:17:21 <Joe> I am done controls released for next camop
04:21:08 <LindaG> Ok
04:21:29 <LindaG> Yes I next
04:21:39 <Joe> good
04:29:39 <ynpvisitor30> Good time for an NG I guess
04:30:57 <CraigC> marmot cave might be going
04:31:39 <LindaGp> Yup
04:31:42 <CraigC> yeah
04:31:50 <CraigC> that was a cool burst
04:31:57 <LindaGp> It was
04:32:30 <CraigC> grove is steaming
04:33:28 <CraigC> is grove erupting?
04:33:51 <LindaGp> I think so
04:34:10 <LindaGp> Dont think erupting it goes pretty high
04:34:42 <CraigC> I don't know it but in the gosa video of the one that Graham entered, that is about all it looked like
04:34:53 <LindaGp> Like I could see it on old cam across GH
04:34:54 <CraigC> I am going to enter it
04:35:20 <LindaGp> Ok
04:37:21 <LindaGp> Bubblers!
04:37:31 <CraigC> yeah!
04:37:50 <CraigC> they look good on this cam
04:37:50 <LindaGp> First I've seen them
04:38:22 <LindaGp> I wasn't sure how they would look
04:40:03 <CraigC> pump
04:40:17 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
04:40:21 <CraigC> hey Dave
04:40:46 <Joe> Hi Dave, I left Bee for you!! :)
04:41:03 <ynpvisitor106> Penguin in the store today?
04:41:55 <Dave from B™> Penguins are free to go golfing today
04:42:13 <Dave from B™> I haven't seen BH from the new cam yet. Thanks, Joe!
04:43:29 <Joe> Lock your self in the office don't answer the phone, keep watching :)
04:43:37 <CraigC> has Dome ended its series?
04:43:48 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, good morning
04:44:24 <LindaGp> I think dome is just steaming
04:44:34 <LindaGp> Static is working today
04:45:01 <CraigC> just opened static, saw someone walking their dog :)
04:45:27 <LindaGp> Haven't seen bee live, watched on Gosa rerun
04:46:52 <CraigC> Joe, easier to tell those features by the river in daylight now
04:47:50 <Joe> I have seen Bee live on this cam a few times, right Dave.
04:48:09 <LindaGp> 😊
04:48:15 <Joe> Thanks Craig
04:48:50 <LindaGp> Marmots happy
04:49:16 <Dave from B™> I wonder if we will be able to see osprey along the river with this cam
04:49:19 <CraigC> yeah
04:49:36 <LindaGp> That would be cool
04:50:45 <Dave from B™> I've seen them catch fish along the firehole in UGB at least 3 times. It is fun to watch.
04:51:22 <CraigC> cool, I have always wondered if it was too warm through there for the trout
04:52:26 <LindaGp> Hope we dont have bee OF conflict
04:55:14 <CraigC> lot of steam at grove again
04:55:32 <LindaGp> Yeah i see it
04:55:48 <Joe> One of the anemone was ie

05:07:28 <CraigC> we can see edge of indy on static
05:07:49 <CraigC> if BH goes during OF, can you pan back and forth?
05:09:04 <LindaGp> When I go to OF keep an eye on Indy I will return asap
05:09:14 <CraigC> in the of window now
05:09:57 <CraigC> I'll keep close eye on edge of static
05:10:04 <LindaGp> Nice light
05:10:06 <CraigC> hey Kevin
05:10:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning. I think.
05:10:21 <LindaGp> Its been going early

05:25:23 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:25:50 <CraigC> and wind has turned in our favor for seeing it better
05:26:09 <LindaGp> OF is taking its time
05:28:32 <Chancellor> Good Morning all
05:29:33 <LindaGp> Morning
05:29:37 <CraigC> hey Chancellor
05:29:59 <ynpvisitor63> so Chancy for short
05:30:11 <Dave from B™> Craig, is this the first camper you have owned?
05:30:26 <Chancellor> no, definitely, not Chancy
05:30:53 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yeah
05:31:17 <Chancellor> I was hoping to be in the Park this weekend, but looks like it will be impossible
05:31:18 <LindaGp> For goodness sakes, do it OF
05:31:32 <Dave from B™> What's getting in the way, Chancellor?
05:31:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke OF
05:31:54 <ynpvisitor63> fluffy saw everyone enjoying the wait and it is cooperating
05:32:28 <Chancellor> too many other things this weekend, might have to wait a couple of weeks
05:32:37 <LindaGp> Bee is active
05:32:59 <J. Tennessine> Morning all
05:33:04 <Chancellor> Maybe over Memorial Day weekend
05:33:25 <Dave from B™> My first trip will have to be mid May as well. I have a staff member leaving so have to do interviews and all that jazz
05:34:12 <CraigC> Dave from B™, hope you aren't parked at SB that whole time, it would be cool to catch up in UGB area
05:35:52 <LindaGp> Someone broke OF
05:35:52 <ynpvisitor63> see Linda, fluffy heard you say it has been going early
05:35:54 <Sam> No OF yet?
05:36:06 <LindaGp> No
05:36:09 <Sam> Thanks
05:36:30 <LindaGp> Gotta be soon
05:36:36 <Sam> Yup
05:36:45 <Joe> Linda, not Dave broke it
05:37:04 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor63, I should whisper 😉
05:37:11 <ynpvisitor63> yes
05:38:41 <Sam> It hasn't had a 1hr50min interval for a while
05:38:45 <Sam> It was time
05:39:28 <LindaGp> OF
05:39:37 <ynpvisitor63> Fluffy
05:40:03 <Sam> Ugh I'm on a delay
05:40:19 <Sam> There it is for me
05:43:15 <CraigC> I like the steam on the channel
05:44:11 <ynpvisitor63> so is the chat timeline off? since we had Old Faithful at 0739, but it was put in gt for 0738ns?
05:45:06 <Joe> Linda Sees it on controls a few secondes eariler than the GP
05:45:59 <ynpvisitor63> but her time is a minute later than the ns
05:47:22 <Joe> Her posted time is 0738 should be exact, she always puts in ns or ie
05:48:03 <Joe> Her time on chat is when her hands quit shaking and she can enter :)
05:48:22 <ynpvisitor63> ok
05:49:35 <Joe> camops always see things seconds earlier than the public stream
05:50:13 <LindaGp> Joe, lol
05:50:14 <Dave from B™> Anyone else feel like we are watching a pot that isn't ready to boil?:) Any chance it was missed yesterday/overnight?
05:50:42 <Dave from B™> That is not a statement to move the cam it is just a feeling I have in my stomach.
05:50:50 <Joe> BH was not missed last night
05:51:35 <LindaGp> Thwre are bubblers
05:51:58 <Kat> MOrning - bubblers :)
05:52:05 <Joe> bubblers started a bit ago when Linda called them
05:52:20 <LindaGp> Kat, morning
05:53:04 <Joe> after bubblers BH 0 to many hours :)
05:53:24 <Kat> Hey Linda!
05:53:43 <Sam> Steamboat today? :)
05:53:56 <Ryan> Nope
05:53:59 <Chancellor> I don't think I have watched Beehive on the new cam
05:54:11 <LindaGp> 0 to many 👍
05:54:23 <Joe> stick around then :)
05:54:24 <Kat> I haven't either - I bet it looks smaller
05:54:42 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a pretty good view
05:55:08 <LindaGp> I watched Gosa it looks good
05:55:17 <Kat> Great!
05:55:52 <Ryan> I dont think SB will be for a few more days. I will behappy to be wrong though
05:56:24 <J. Tennessine> Don'tworry, behappy
05:56:24 <Joe> I would say I watched it live, but I don't want to rub salt on Dave's wounds
05:56:40 <Chancellor> probably does look smaller. Personally, I like the idea of watching it while watching the river in front.
05:58:59 <Joe> next Daisy ~ 0830
06:01:51 <LindaGp> Cam freezing
06:06:27 <LindaGp> Better
06:07:52 <LindaGp> Then maybe not
06:08:24 <Sam> I haven't noticed anything yet
06:12:23 <Ryan> CraigC, this weekend was my 399th cave trip. Wondering where special 400 will be this weekend....
06:14:47 <CraigC> find a cave in YNP
06:15:31 <Ryan> Theres several, none of which I will ever see
06:15:41 <CraigC> Lion fooled us
06:15:59 <Dave from B™>
06:16:11 <LindaGp> It did
06:16:40 <CraigC> Ryan, I'm also impressed that you know exactly the number
06:17:23 <CraigC> any downsides to your OCD? :)
06:18:14 <Ryan> Yeah it spars with how depression and anxiety expresses itself in me: namely by stopping me from doing anything.
06:18:47 <CraigC> relatively, you seem to do more than most everyone
06:19:44 <Joe> comet
06:20:01 <Joe> ie
06:20:08 <Ryan> I mean, I still go through the motions. But when mental illnesses start setting in the result is lack of documentation, lack of processing previous documentation, and thus things start backing up which is really a problem.
06:20:45 <CraigC> I get that, and sorry
06:21:11 <Ryan> Thats usually precipitated by having too much to do.
06:21:27 <CraigC> I've dealt with anxiety, adn my best medicine is teasing myself in a Monty Python voice LOL
06:21:51 <Joe> BA
06:23:15 <LindaGp> Meditation helps with that
06:23:25 <CraigC> yup
06:23:35 <LindaGp> Cam froze
06:23:48 <Joe> not here
06:24:09 <LindaGp> Moving
06:24:19 <CraigC> Molecules of Emotion was a great read, about thoughts and how they affect neurotransmitters and peptides
06:24:40 <Ryan> I havent found much help with meditation. Probably because I cant make consistent time to do it properly.
06:24:57 <Ryan> Theres only been one thing thats ever really, really, helped
06:25:11 <LindaGp> Main objective is to detach from thoughts for a while
06:25:48 <Ryan> Thats what caving does :D
06:25:58 <Joe> Mary Jane helps
06:26:05 <CraigC> LindaGp, true true... one of my best accomplishments was training my mind to tell itself "stop it" or "shut up" :)
06:26:07 <LindaGp> 👍
06:26:23 <CraigC> Joe, :)
06:26:41 <Ryan> I dont even hide the reality of my brain anymore. I spent several years fighting a brain that fought every forward motion I tried.
06:26:47 <LindaGp> There will always be thoughts we just don't have to listen to them 😁
06:27:19 <CraigC> Ryan, that's huge... for too long people were afraid of sharing
06:27:52 <CraigC> I love that I see friends on FB sharing mental health memes
06:28:02 <Ryan> There were three things that helped: I stopped drinking (and I wasnt a light drinker), I had friends who never left, and I saw Steamboat.
06:28:39 <LindaGp> Nature is very therapeutic for me
06:28:53 <CraigC> me too, fishing, mtn biking
06:29:18 <Ryan> The lack of drinking let me actually deal with the problems properly, friends kept me safe when things got scary, and after several years where a LOT of things redefined "sadness" "depression" and "bad" for me Steamboat was the first, and only event, that has ever redefined happiness and joy for me.
06:29:31 <Joe> one more minute on daisy
06:30:11 <Ryan> If anyone wonders why I can start on about SB and not stop its because it literally reminded me how to be a human again. The effects that morning have had on me have still been showing up.
06:30:14 <CraigC> Ryan, glad you have worked thru a lot and can talk about it
06:31:26 <CraigC> I bet people are out there that hear you wherever you discuss it, and it makes them feel better that it isn't only them
06:31:30 <LindaGp> Daisy
06:31:30 <Joe> there it is
06:32:10 <LindaGp> Im impressed joe
06:32:11 <Joe> Thanks Linda
06:32:33 <Ryan> I can say with certainty that at least four other people have shared similar stories about SB.
06:32:49 <Joe> I am very anal when it comes to Daisy
06:33:03 <Ryan> Daisy
06:33:03 <CraigC> TMI
06:33:19 <Joe> :)
06:33:44 <LindaGp> Castle is a pest though
06:33:52 <Ryan> Dont sit on it Joe
06:34:56 <Joe> I have had my fun for the day, places to go, enjoy BH
06:35:12 <LindaGp> Thx
06:35:20 <Dave from B™> Ryan, thanks for sharing. I admire your openness. Just know that your adventures bring happiness to many. I love seeing your caving photos. And, because of you, I never use the word spelunking:)
06:36:29 <Joe> BA
06:36:41 <Ryan> :D I will try to figure out how to get photos to FB without using FB, Dave.
06:36:44 <LindaGp> Bye joe
06:37:08 <CraigC> BA?
06:37:18 <Ryan> FB is the current source of many of my issues. Its a far more addictive and influential substance than alcohol was.
06:37:27 <Joe> Big Anemone
06:37:29 <LindaGp> Bye again i think
06:37:33 <CraigC> ahhhh
06:37:49 <Ryan> I have falling in the same trap like so many of my generation where theres too much self worth derived from social media
06:37:51 <LindaGp> Lol that i wouldnt have guessed
06:38:04 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I would tend to agree. Peeling myself away from my phone and its countless apps is very difficult but necessary for me.
06:38:39 <CraigC> Ryan, you're right about that part of FB, but I see something VERY positive; when I see pics from others' adventures, it inspires me to do more, and in turn, I share all I can of my adventures hoping to do the same for others
06:38:44 <Ryan> I came to that conclusion after last weekend. I turned my phone off while in an area with no cell service and then when driving home I found myself on FB for almost an hour straight.
06:39:26 <LindaGp> Lc
06:39:50 <Dave from B™> Even though I'm not a caver, people like you, CraigC and Eric motivate me to get off my bu** and do stuff.
06:39:55 <Ryan> I wont get rid of it because too many people see my stuff that way... I have a friend who is changing my FB password and not telling me until at least May 17
06:40:06 <CraigC> LOL
06:40:11 <ynpvisitor17> FB never ends, so there is no satiation. I finally figured that one out. :)
06:40:19 <Dave from B™> All of us can be more active
06:40:35 <LindaGp> Its addictive no doubt about it
06:40:35 <CraigC> Eric inspires me a lot, too
06:40:59 <Ryan> Its also the primary vector by which I open more opportunities regarding my photos and caving. So its difficult to balance...
06:41:12 <CraigC> I started doing exercises here at home since joining this dashboard because of Eric
06:41:22 <Ryan> I may start a blog in return. More personal and less impulsive
06:41:34 <CraigC> good idea
06:41:53 <CraigC> cathartic, also
06:42:07 <LindaGp> This is weird cam keeps freezing but you guys aren't seeing that
06:43:20 <Ryan> Lots to write about, things that run the gauntlet from as impersonal as a cave description to as personal as being at SB and thinking for the first time that "the last five years were worth all of it"
06:44:22 <Dave from B™> So, back to the q that started all of this.......
06:44:38 <Dave from B™> Where are you going for #400?
06:45:12 <CraigC> Ryan, I just added you on instagram
06:46:42 <CraigC> There are a lot of people on my Facebook that I wish would only connect with my on IG, so they wouldnt get all upset about my political views :)
06:48:25 <Joe> BA
06:48:32 <Ryan> A cave in WV, whos name I wont post here. It has native american remains in it, some big vertical pits, and I discovered the western half of the came.
06:48:32 <Joe> and LA
06:48:34 <Ryan> cave*
06:49:17 <CraigC> is Improbable the other one steaming?
06:49:30 <Joe> yes
06:50:21 <LindaGp> Cam is freezing for 30 seconds at a time
06:50:30 <Joe> I haven't left yet, can't seem to tear myself away
06:50:56 <Joe> Linda I think it is your ISP
06:51:05 <LindaGp> I guess
06:51:36 <LindaGp> I just lost stream on phone also
06:51:57 <Joe> That being said cam down
06:52:53 <Joe> there is always something that comes along and proves me wrong :)
06:53:19 <LindaGp> Lol dont take it personally
06:53:44 <Joe> I do < I Do
06:53:56 <Joe> back up
06:54:08 <LindaGp> Im not
06:54:27 <Joe> oops I said I do 54 years ago
06:54:31 <LindaGp> Rebooting
06:55:12 <Dave from B™> Today is your anniversary, Joe?
06:55:48 <Joe> two more months
06:56:33 <LindaGp> Still not on cam
06:56:36 <Joe> two months in 54 years, small potatoes
06:57:02 <Joe> Stream is down again
06:57:03 <CraigC> wow
06:58:11 <Joe> I have learned many life saving things in 54 years :)
06:58:34 <Dave from B™> Yes, dear...whatever you want?
06:58:56 <Joe> those were the first two
06:58:57 <LindaGp> I say that to my husband
06:58:59 <ynpvisitor98> wondering if it is the power is down or the wireless connection
06:59:46 <Joe> probably power statis also stopped
06:59:55 <LindaGp> Joe do you want to try and take cam?
06:59:55 <Joe> static*
07:00:15 <Joe> static*
07:03:44 <LindaGp> Cam not working
07:03:47 <Dave from B™> I feel the biggest decision in life is picking your life partner. My wife and I have shared many many memories. We are always excited for what lies ahead. There is always sadness in my heart when others aren't able to find that right person.
07:07:14 <Joe> Sharing both good and bad memories with the right person is always nice.
07:08:09 <Dave from B™> Yep. Knowing someone else is there to pick you up when you are down and vice versa
07:08:38 <Joe> LInda, you may miss Old Faithful, whatever will you do?
07:09:39 <LindaGp> 😊 I cannot get in to cam. Neither my tablet or desktop so I'm assuming it's just not me. If someone wants to try go ahead.
07:10:17 <Joe> no static back up either, you will lose a days pay for sure!
07:10:49 <Joe> Everything is down no one can get in
07:11:04 <LindaGp> Ok
07:11:33 <LindaGp> Bee don't do anything explosive!
07:12:19 <Joe> If you need help missing a days pay, I can help make up that loss :)
07:13:03 <Sam> Well shoot. Shame about the cam
07:13:59 <Sam> Hopefully it comes back soon
07:14:12 <LindaGp> Joe, 🙄
07:22:33 <LindaGp> Same msg on NPS as before,video file not found
07:25:21 <Sam> So what happens when the cam goes down and no one is in the park? Is there a message we send out?
07:27:42 <ChrisO> what is YMV hitting this morning? I want some :)
07:29:49 <Sam> EQs?
07:31:47 <ChrisO> looks more like it got ran over by a truck
07:32:32 <Joe> They have people stationed there
07:33:24 <Joe> They will call the power company and get things going again
07:34:35 <J. Tennessine> While the cam is down, sunlight is hitting Yosemite Falls right now
07:49:05 <ynpvisitor33> OK Joe in your spare time we want both the leight sesitivity and the clock on static cam fixed :)
07:59:19 <ChrisO> is there a park wide power outage? Cant get the seismographs to update.
08:00:55 <ynpvisitor14> Ryan still here, I have a cave question.
08:01:46 <Ryan> Still here, and kind of stunned. Someone knocked my phone out of my hand in the hallway just now and the screen got destroyed. It was in a case and everything
08:02:19 <ynpvisitor14> Bummer, got insurance, or they paying for it?
08:02:47 <Dave from B™> ouch
08:03:05 <ynpvisitor14> Cave question, in the 399 have you ever done the tour of Lewis and Clack Caverns in Montana by the park?
08:03:51 <Ryan> No insurance, and no, they just kept walking.
08:03:57 <ynpvisitor14> I read they have 3 differen toptions
08:04:01 <Ryan> No i havent been to Lewis and Clark
08:04:05 <ynpvisitor1> Well have a good day, I'm done. I'll check in later for bee.
08:04:50 <ynpvisitor14> For a real caver, probably not fun. Thought maybe it was one of your first.
08:05:33 <ynpvisitor14> I think you can get the glass replaced if it is a newer phone and worth the effort.
08:06:10 <ynpvisitor14> Or you can make up a good story about how it got shattered.
08:06:57 <Dave from B™> 14, I have been to L&C Caverns a couple of times
08:07:10 <Ryan> glass is fine. Its the LCD
08:07:16 <Ryan> All caves are fun
08:09:02 <ynpvisitor14> Know someone headed that way and they are thinking of stopping by. Not sure they have the time for the 2 hour tour.
08:10:15 <Dave from B™> Tours start May 1
08:12:43 <Ryan> So without a phone I now cant access anything requiring dual login
08:12:51 <Ryan> Shit. I have a really serious problem right now.
08:13:14 <Eric> Yes, the problem of making your phone the authenticator
08:13:17 <Eric> Hi all
08:14:06 <Ryan> I hated doing it.
08:14:19 <Ryan> I hate DFA. I resisted switching until I had no choice.
08:14:30 <Ryan> specifically for this ******* reason.
08:14:41 <Ryan> oh shit, sorry, I forgot where I am.
08:18:53 <ynpvisitor14> Sorry, can not help, I do not have nor do I ever want a smart phone.
08:20:05 <Dave from B™> Eric, do you have any advice for Ryan?
08:20:32 <ynpvisitor753> What's the issue at hand?
08:20:41 <ynpvisitor753> Need to get text tokens for Multi Factor Auth?
08:21:11 <ynpvisitor14> With a broken phone
08:21:42 <ynpvisitor14> Sounds to me it is a trip to the phone store.
08:22:22 <ynpvisitor753> Just a broken screen?
08:22:27 <ynpvisitor753> Phone totally dead?
08:22:28 <ynpvisitor14> Unless one can just transfer the sim to a different phone, you know that old one in the sock drawer.
08:22:31 <ynpvisitor753> Need to get MFA tokens?
08:22:46 <ynpvisitor14> his screen got smashed
08:22:54 <Dave from B™> LCD damage
08:22:59 <ynpvisitor753> OK, you can get the screen replaced
08:23:15 <ynpvisitor753> Swap the SIM to another phone (iPhone->iPhone or Android->Android)
08:23:53 <ynpvisitor90> What's the deal with the cam this morning
08:23:58 <ynpvisitor90> ??
08:24:13 <ynpvisitor14> Kevin ran over a transformer?
08:24:21 <Dave from B™> Not exactly sure but could be a power outage
08:24:43 <ynpvisitor90> Oh, thanks - I thought it was ME!!!
08:25:19 <ynpvisitor14> If it is you, you are causing the rest of us the same problem.
08:26:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought it was a rock.
08:26:53 <ynpvisitor9> Just noticed the static cam was out too. That oddly makes me feel better.
08:27:31 <Casey> Oops, it's me btw
08:28:49 <ynpvisitor65> black helicopters seen evacuating Yellowstone! this is it! be sure to cancel your Memorial Day reservations, please!
08:29:20 <Casey> Please do. I'll be calling shortly to get my Memorial Day reservations then.
08:29:34 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
08:29:44 <ynpvisitor14> No, cancel reservations at Madison for rv spots on the 20th and 21st.
08:29:47 <Lori S> Hello all
08:30:25 <ChrisO> i thought the magma chamber was 15% non-eruptable mush...and the rest was solid rock :)
08:30:44 <ynpvisitor14> Kevin, don't feel bad they hide those big green transformers under artificial rocks.
08:30:49 <Lori S> Both cams down, YNM seismo has gone blank at 8 days 13 hours and counting.
08:31:00 <ChrisO> YMV is down to
08:31:14 <Lori S> of dear
08:31:17 <Lori S> OH
08:31:50 <ynpvisitor14> Check cnn, for news updates on the mega volcano.
08:32:21 <Dave from B™> YNM is still recording. Back data will show up when power returns
08:32:39 <ynpvisitor14> Dave from b is an alias, billings has been wiped off the map.
08:32:42 <Casey> You know the gov't owns the media. CNN will tell us squat.
08:32:53 <ynpvisitor753> Guessing park internet/uplink is down
08:33:22 <Dave from B™> Maybe I just moved to Boston, Baltimore or Boise
08:33:24 <ynpvisitor14> No, the left owns the media. The government just owns FOX.
08:33:26 <Lori S> Dave, that's good. We will at least know if it went then.
08:33:27 <ChrisO> not to worried about this big baby erupting any time soon...OF isn't down to 20 minute eruption intervals yet
08:34:19 <Lori S> 3. earthquakes in the area...Townsend, Manhattan again
08:34:30 <ynpvisitor14> Bangladesh or Beijing?
08:35:45 <ynpvisitor14> Well got to go the sun came out and have stuff to do. Hope Ryan finds a fast easy cheep fix for his phone problems.
08:36:10 <Lori S> I was reading back through chat history from this morn. I went off grid for a few days in early April. First thing I did when I got a signal was cehck the YNM on 4/7. Then FB.
08:36:14 <ynpvisitor753> Smashed phone screen, replace the screen or get a new phone
08:37:13 <ChrisO> still want to know what the red lines are and what caused it on YMV
08:40:19 <Lori S> Just read abt Ryan's phone. That's awful they kept walking.
08:41:22 <Lori S> Where is the YMV?
08:42:41 <Lori S> I mean, it says Mammoth, but where there?
08:43:33 <ChrisO> just south of Gardiner
08:43:53 <Lori S> Thanks Chris
09:04:33 <Eric> I would assume one of the basements of the buildings there Lori
09:16:27 <Eric> Apparently, according to GIS information, the YMV seismo is in this cement structure:,-110.6894053,168m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x534fd40d89a83eb9:0x44a8af0104efe1cd!8m2!3d44.9763742!4d-110.7017138
09:16:33 <Eric> in the middle of the map
09:16:44 <Eric> Which looks like a vault :-D
09:19:42 <Casey> Or a bunker?
09:22:44 <ynpvisitor1> So NPS Internet is down and its affecting the cam.
09:23:27 <Eric> It's probably power
09:23:53 <Eric> The internet is run by centurylink and most likely has battery backups
09:24:07 <Eric> and a generator
09:27:33 <Lori S> Wonder why it's in a bunker/vault.
09:27:57 <Lori S> What did we all do before the internet.
09:28:26 <Lori S> Watched TV with a clicker remote. LOL
09:40:21 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I WAS the remote for my Dad...
09:50:38 <Dave from B™> How about the days BEFORE a remote?
09:51:48 <ynpvisitor47> Must be anti cell phone day. i just got an email saying I need to replace my perfectly fine old flip phone. The options are not any better after all these years.
09:52:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I may be getting one of those too then.
09:53:00 <ynpvisitor47> Depends on how old your phone is. I am 2g, real old.
09:53:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I think mine is 3g
09:54:39 <ynpvisitor47> 3G is not effected. At least now.
09:54:58 <ynpvisitor47> So you may outlive your phone.
09:55:07 <Dave from B™> 47, you can always go back to a landline
09:55:36 <ynpvisitor47> What phone do you have, how long will it stay charged, and will it survive getting dunked in a mud puddle?
09:56:26 <ynpvisitor47> I have one of those, just not a long enough cord, and my wireless phone will not make it past the driveway.
09:57:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a Samsung that does stay charged. Never dumped it in a mud puddle though. Think It is about 8 years old.
09:58:39 <ynpvisitor47> Acctually my phone has survived dunkings in water several times. Did not survive being left on the lawn over night with the sprinklers running though.
10:00:02 <ynpvisitor47> The screen fogged up and I cooked it trying to dry it out. Fixed that by buying 2 on that action site and replacing the radio so i do dnot have to reactivate or anything. No sim in this baby.
10:01:14 <ynpvisitor47> No gps, no camer, just a phone when I need it. And that is not often, so may just dump it.
10:01:16 <Kevin L™🌵> We had one once that got dunked. Put it in a bag of rice and that absorbed the moisture and it worked fine.
10:01:28 <ynpvisitor47> Save me all of 8 or 9 bucks a month.
10:03:21 <ynpvisitor47> I did not do that as I was impatient and it had a big bubble behind the lcd. Phone worked, just could not read the screen.
10:04:58 <ynpvisitor47> I guess I need to go shopping and do some searching to see what phone I can use. They only gove 2 choices and one has terrible reviews and the other has the camera button in the wrong place.
10:05:21 <ynpvisitor47> Work fast to fix the internet connection.
10:06:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck with that.
10:15:31 <lc> hey everyone
10:15:32 <Dave from B™> Hi, lc
10:15:47 <lc> cam is down or is it just me?
10:15:48 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
10:15:57 <LindaG> Its down
10:16:00 <LindaG> Hi
10:16:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Were down too.
10:16:18 <Dave from B™> We're thinking power outage
10:16:54 <lc> just noticed someone here 'J. Tennessine', you in TN?
10:17:17 <Kevin L™🌵> According to sources it may not be up until tomorrow. :(
10:17:41 <lc> thanks
10:17:46 <LindaG>
10:19:05 <LindaG> lc, j. Tennessine is jimbo and he likes elements
10:19:22 <lc> Dave, good news/bad news here, Nathan is moving, bad news they will still be in NJ.
10:19:44 <lc> thanks linda, that was over my head.
10:19:54 <Dave from B™> Why the move?
10:20:16 <lc> wife got new job
10:20:56 <lc> only about 20 miles away from where they live but I guess traffic is BAD.
10:21:19 <lc> or maybe 30 miles
10:21:44 <Dave from B™> Yeah...that could be a 2 hour commute in NJ:)
10:22:04 <Dave from B™> A move up for his wife?
10:22:26 <lc> yes
10:22:43 <Dave from B™> That's good
10:23:23 <lc> she will be heading up a new division.
10:25:10 <Dave from B™> Have you been up to visit them in NJ?
10:26:29 <lc> what is the guess on SB, another 14 day interval?
10:26:39 <Eric> I believe they were correctly the time on the static cam and it created a time vortex that has destroyed the basin :-(
10:26:45 <Eric> correcting
10:26:48 <lc> no we have not Dave.
10:27:34 <Eric> I will guess that SB will erupt today
10:27:51 <Kevin L™🌵> But we may never know.
10:27:56 <ynpvisitor53> they created a black hole, Eric?
10:28:02 <Dave from B™> lc, 14 day interval seems close. I hope it doesn't go longer than that.
10:28:21 <Eric> More of a time vortex, that loops infinitely for 3 minutes
10:28:46 <CraigC> Dave, wth did you do while I was away???
10:28:47 <ynpvisitor53> wormhole? SG1?
10:28:57 <lc> I hope for a shorter interval.
10:29:20 <Betty> oops, was still a number
10:29:24 <Eric> Statistics say shorter interval LC
10:29:30 <CraigC> hey Betty
10:29:33 <Dave from B™> I'm hoping for 10-12 days for SB
10:29:34 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:29:36 <Betty> hi all
10:29:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
10:30:39 <lc> sure hope it stays active, maybe I can be half as lucky as last year.
10:32:16 <CraigC> is there an answer to the cam situation if I scroll thru todays logs
10:32:31 <Eric> 42
10:32:36 <CraigC> LMAO
10:32:44 <CraigC> "what was the question?"
10:33:01 <Dave from B™> power outage...come back tomorrow
10:33:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Internet issues
10:33:02 <CraigC> so long, and thanks for all the fish
10:33:21 <Kevin L™🌵> He sells penguins now too.
10:33:40 <CraigC> live penguins?
10:33:44 <Dave from B™> I'll be selling CAPS next week:)
10:35:03 <Kevin L™🌵> We had a lot of caps here a few days ago.
10:38:41 <Dave from B™> Buy a fedora; I hear they fly further
10:39:11 <Kevin L™🌵> More lift
10:42:35 <ChrisO> so is it a power outage or are they hiding stuff again :)
10:43:39 <lc> I'll check back tomorrow, have a good day everyone.
10:43:51 <Betty> bye lc
10:43:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye
10:47:27 <Dave from B™> bye lc
10:52:19 <ynpvisitor10> Kevin, look for a email or text about your 3g phone someday. 3g is going away also. Sooner for some then others.
10:53:32 <Dave from B™> I thought 3G's = $3,000
10:55:48 <Kevin L™🌵> If you want this phone for $3000, I will sell it to you Dave.
10:59:12 <Dave from B™> I bet you would
11:12:01 <Eric> looks like washburn cams are out too
11:12:08 <Eric> along with lake
11:12:23 <Eric> oh well, lunch time!
11:12:57 <Dave from B™> Park wide upgrade?
11:13:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Park wide failure
11:51:46 <ynpvisitor33> I am surprised Lake is out. I thought it was solar and cell phone.
11:57:58 <ynpvisitor9> I think Micah did it by plugging in too many chargers when he moved in. Phone, computer, radios, big freaking flash light, electric socks, and what ever else he has.
12:08:27 <LindaG> Uh-huh no geysers
12:12:42 <ynpvisitor9> Lots of geysers, they are just hiding.
12:17:27 <Dave from B™> Linda, you have missed at least 5-10 LC eruptions
12:19:58 <Ryan(> still out :(
12:20:33 <ynpvisitor9> The marmots are running free.
12:43:32 <Dave from B™> That's who chewed through the line?
12:44:25 <CraigC> and just like that the prediction board is nearly bare
12:46:50 <Eric> So what the heck is happening that the park loses internet/power at Washburn/Lake/UGB/Norris?
12:47:26 <Eric> Mammoth, Gardiner entrance and West Entrance all seem to be connected
12:47:32 <Dave from B™> See above, Eric. Marmot chewed thru the line:)
12:47:46 <Eric> Must have been one huge marmot!
12:47:51 <Dave from B™> Major issue somewhere in the interior
12:48:07 <Dave from B™> I would guess contractor induced
12:48:39 <Eric> No official word?
12:49:08 <Dave from B™> Kevin said he heard it would be down until tomorrow, I believe
12:53:20 <Eric> I am using the power of social media to get an official response...let's see if that works :-D
12:56:23 <GO GIANT> why is there an X
12:56:35 <Sam> Cam's been down most of the day
12:56:47 <GO GIANT> its not even marking where Giant is
12:57:22 <GO GIANT> argh ... SB could be eruptimng and we dont even know it
12:58:11 <Sam> Exactly :( Did we find out if this is actually a power outage?
12:58:14 <Eric> Yep...sad to say :-( I wonder if they are cutting over to new equipment at washburn and had issues?
12:58:39 <Eric> Washburn, Norris, UGB & Lake are all showing signs of being down
12:59:15 <LindaG> I was getting ready for am daylight bee...and then...
13:00:34 <Sam> At least the park opens on Friday
13:01:18 <GO GIANT> lookslike internet isues in the park
13:01:44 <LindaG> Yes, they didnt say power outage
13:02:21 <CraigC> Eric, I saw your comment, you communicate very well. No whining or *****ing in your post. :)
13:03:22 <GO GIANT> looks like i get the night off :)
13:04:20 <Sam> :thumbsup:
13:04:31 <GO GIANT> would be nice if CAPS were playing tonight ... and winning :)
13:04:52 <GO GIANT> I see your birthday broom worked well Dave ... it is one time use only tho
13:05:23 <Sam> Well, it's unlikely the internet will be restored before tonight, so I'm logging off. See you all tomorrow, with *fingers crossed* a working cam! :)
13:05:44 <GO GIANT> bye Sam
13:06:41 <Dave from B™> GG, They had a 3 for 1 sale on brooms. I can't let them go to waste.
13:07:11 <GO GIANT> didnt you wish for 4?
13:08:46 <GO GIANT> shocking the lightning lost 4 straight after how dominant they were in the regular season
13:09:32 <Dave from B™> Graham, it is only the second playoff series we've won in 25 years. Why get greedy?
13:10:05 <GO GIANT> 4 and you would have won the cup
13:10:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I think they were already lined up to get the Stanley Cup and forgot they had more games to play
13:10:45 <GO GIANT> i hope CAPS figure out how to play the game again
13:12:17 <Dave from B™> 3 shots in last 40 minutes doesn't cut it
13:17:52 <ChrisO> :i::i: hmmmm
13:18:18 <Dave from B™> Time to go home. It's time to turn the water and pray that everything works. Have a great evening everyone!
13:18:37 <ChrisO> have a good one Dave :)
13:18:51 <GO GIANT> bye Dave
13:18:55 <Eric> Totally forgot Dave...HAppy Belated Birthday!
13:19:03 <Eric> and goodnight
13:19:17 <Dave from B™> Thanks. Birthday dinner is tomorrow tonight!
13:21:22 <GO GIANT> i hope the cam comes back soon so we can get some times on the board for opening day Friday
13:22:02 <Kevin L™🌵> I am still bummed about the daylight BH
13:22:24 <GO GIANT> i bet it was nice
13:22:38 <LindaGt> Ohnthere were bubblers
13:23:00 <LindaGt> Geez cant type. Oh there were bubblers
13:23:29 <GO GIANT> maybe they are still bubbling ... wouldnt be the first time ... but unlikely
13:25:03 <ChrisO> thats what geysers do...they bubble :)
13:25:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Well if it comes back you can take it Graham. I have to run.
13:25:35 <Eric> daylight BH? I see nothing logged
13:32:13 <Joe> Eric, there was not a daylight BH before the cam went out, there was steaming and bubblers early this morning.
13:32:48 <Joe> no Bh overnight also
13:35:10 <Eric> ahhh
13:35:21 <Eric> Maybe it's still waiting for us....
13:35:47 <Joe> possible :)
13:51:22 <LindaGt> So since the cam is down I've been kn Facebook. Just found out that Jeremiah Johnson was a real person, actually born in New Jerey. He is now buried in Cody. They called him liver eating Johnston. Because he ate the liver of those he killed. Ewwwww
