05:39:54 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning all
05:40:10 <ynpvisitorCC> Joe how was the outages last night?
05:40:16 <Joe> Hi CC
05:43:06 <Joe> I had 6 last night, but yesterday there were at least 100 failures
05:43:49 <Joe> well into 22-2300
05:44:27 <ynpvisitorCC> wow on yesterday
05:45:39 <ynpvisitorCC> Off to teach today...hope a reset will work
05:46:34 <ynpvisitorCC> few peeps up early
05:46:51 <ynpvisitorCC> have a nice day
05:47:01 <Joe> I hope, I think they have to seperate the wifi and VHF antennas further
06:01:51 <ynpvisitor999®> oh... so the cam doesn't like me now. How disappointing
06:01:57 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:19:19 <ynpvisitor999®> well... looks like it's going to be a static day
06:50:59 <Joe> Hi Kevin, Jarno broke the camera
06:52:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Can't trust these kids now days.
06:53:29 <Kat> Morning. Guess there's no cam ??
06:54:38 <Kevin L™🌵> It is on furlough.
06:54:49 <Joe> Hi Kat, yes there is no kamera
06:55:05 <Joe> camera*
06:55:55 <Kat> I'll be watching the computer. Thanks Joe!
06:56:41 <Joe> The radio to the cam is up but the cam itself is down
06:59:59 <Joe> Unless it heals its self, I don't think there will be human intervention this week at all.
07:01:11 <ynpvisitor8> That is sad news Joe
07:01:55 <ynpvisitor8> Hopefully these ongoing issues will lead the powers that be to return the cam to its old spot
07:02:19 <ynpvisitor8> Before winter sets in and we are truly screwed
07:04:56 <ynpvisitor8> Joe I see it was up at 550, did you just determine it is down for good?
07:08:22 <Joe> It went down at 0600 waited for it to come back up but it has not, I checked the radio link status and it is good, so a trip to the roof is in order :( unless it heals its self>
07:10:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe someone in the basin can count the number of poles on the top of the Inn.
07:13:43 <Joe> I have sent E-mail to D and T, but D is out of the office this week.
07:15:16 <Joe> Maybe a Raven will try to have spiders for lucch and peck the cam hard enough to 'repair' it
07:16:07 <Joe> lunch*
07:16:09 <LindaG> Good morning, I think
07:16:15 <Joe> Hi Linda
07:16:40 <LindaG> Joe, hi, down for the count again huh?
07:17:10 <Joe> looks like
07:17:42 <LindaG>
07:18:08 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
07:18:14 <ynpvisitor999®> 0716, that is
07:45:10 <ynpvisitor39> dome static
07:45:38 <ynpvisitor39> or not
07:54:25 <Joe> The streaming cam was very popular when it was in the tree. PROOF: You would see many people on their phones looking at the cam and waving to friends and family, the were aware of it and used it for that purpose, many groups would do something on cam, it was all very interesting, how many of those visitors have we lost? Yes its purpose was for Old Faithful, but many vacationers got used to it for
07:54:46 <Bill> Morning
07:55:01 <Joe> Hi Bill
07:56:49 <Joe> end of rant above: social purposes, and now that all is now gone
07:57:42 <ynpvisitor39> Dome
08:02:23 <ynpvisitor91> Hey, give me a chance already!
08:03:11 <Joe> It does not like you :)
08:05:27 <I'm Protactive> aka Jimbo Protactinium
08:05:50 <Joe> :)
08:14:52 <ynpvisitor39> Just noticed the West entrance headed into the p;ark cam is back!!
08:23:22 <ynpvisitor66> Protactinium. Sounds like a continuing education class for a doctor.
08:33:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome static
08:52:24 <Dave from B™> What happened to the camera NOW?
08:52:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I broke it when I came on
08:53:21 <Joe> Hi Dave, yes Jarno killed it at 0600 mt
08:53:29 <ynpvisitor999®> how was your trip, by the way?
08:55:05 <Dave from B™> It was fun. Not a lot of gazing but a really good trip to the park. Saw 8 bears on mon/Tues
08:57:07 <Dave from B™> Spent another 20 hours staring at dirt, too
08:57:20 <ynpvisitor999®> lol
08:57:26 <ynpvisitor118> :thumbsup:
08:57:47 <ynpvisitor118> bet it wasnt as painful this time
08:59:38 <Dave from B™> I actually walked to Cistern and Steerage at least 5 or 6 times and out to the car twice
09:00:45 <ynpvisitor118> next time you can walk round back basin
09:03:03 <Joe> lc posted an Aurum at 0821
09:03:36 <ynpvisitor999®> can confirm on static on 0822 frame
09:05:43 <Dave from B™> Aurum has been remarkably consisent for this time of year and lots of gazers in the field are enjoying it.
09:07:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Personally I think it's due to an influx of water in that area - maybe it was presaged with that ES eruption last September
09:10:53 <ynpvisitor118> Aurum rupted every couple of hours after Ear Spring erupted, so we know it was impacted in that disturbance
09:10:53 <Cooper> Morning Everyone
09:11:13 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Cooper
09:11:40 <ynpvisitor73> Dave is back. Does he remember what to do at work?
09:12:23 <Cooper> Strong Tropical Storm in the pacific-https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_ep2+shtml/143753.shtml?cone#contents
09:12:40 <Cooper> scrool down to find wind catagorys
09:12:53 <Dave from B™> Not sure which pile to attack first. Next vacation is Sept so I have time to get caught up:)
09:13:05 <Cooper> Oh Hi Dave, welcome back
09:13:15 <Dave from B™> Hi Cooper
09:13:58 <ynpvisitor73> First thing to do is sign your paycheck. Second thing to do is take the morning off.
09:14:21 <Dave from B™> It is still pretty wet around the aurum area. Things are slow to dry out this year. Boiling river is also still closed.
09:18:31 <Cooper> How long has the cam been down?
09:20:11 <ynpvisitor999®> since ~0600
09:33:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand 0926 T--
09:34:49 <ynpvisitor73> Maybe the same person that designed this did the cam? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5E_M0FFV8A
09:35:41 <Cooper> HAHA
09:35:51 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
09:36:51 <ynpvisitor12> Was there an improbable note yesterday? Don't see it
09:37:34 <Cooper> Wait, I thought I added one?
09:38:27 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C
09:44:13 <ynpvisitor999®> well, Cooper, looks like the cam has become immune to your punishes
09:44:30 <Cooper> seems like it
09:45:51 <ynpvisitor999®> I really hope this isn't the result of yet another power surge
09:46:21 <Cooper> that would not be good
10:01:25 <ynpvisitor118> i see the afterburst has gone from yesterdays post
10:01:38 <Cooper> I'm off for a bit, enjoy the (live) streaming cam
10:07:03 <Sam> Is that :bee: steam on static?
10:07:25 <Dave from B™> Yep 1004 per GT
10:07:25 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
10:07:26 <Sam> Yes it is. Thanks Kitt in-basin:)
10:07:59 <ynpvisitor51> :(
10:08:02 <Dave from B™> BH has been remarkably consistent for the last 8 eruptions
10:13:51 <Dave from B™> Also, FYI....any Artemesia wc post should include ie. Often, the first couple of minutes of an eruption aren't visible on the cam
10:15:58 <Dave from B™> This was a discussion among a few gazers in the park last week
10:17:14 <Eric> Morning Dave
10:18:14 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
10:18:20 <Eric> BTW...GT will take what it can get on the Artemesia eruptions....people in the basin are lucky to have anything :-P
10:19:42 <Dave from B™> There was much discussion about the inaccuracies coming from this chatroom. I'm trying to help fix the situation.
10:19:46 <Eric> and as far as ie/ns/wc goes, if an entry is labeled as wc, you have to make assumptions that is ns/ie by default, that is why it's labeled wc
10:20:00 <Joe> Any geyser that you can't see completely such as Riverside, Artemesia and othere should be at least WC IE
10:20:14 <Dave from B™> Inaccurate informaation such as erroneous Little Squirt posts confuse gazers in the field
10:21:02 <Eric> well, I agree that incorrect posts are not good, but all things labeled "wc" have some assumptions associated with them, that is why we label them correct?
10:21:33 <Eric> But I have seen incorrect posts from inbasin too.
10:21:38 <Eric> They are just as confusing.
10:22:14 <Dave from B™> I just wanted to warm posters here to be careful if they don't see water. Don't always assume steam is an eruption from something
10:22:20 <Dave from B™> warn*
10:23:24 <Eric> Yep...notes are better if you don't actually see the eruption.
10:23:32 <Eric> wrong is bad.
10:23:41 <ynpvisitor118> Depression is another tricky one as the heavy pushes send up a lot of steam sometimes
10:24:37 <Sam> Start of OF on static?
10:25:00 <Joe> Depression, if you do not see steam in the runoff channel it probably has not erupted
10:25:46 <Joe> statr of of on statie s/b always ie
10:25:47 <Eric> Has anyone seen the Beehive south bubbler referred to in a TSB or GOSA article?
10:26:29 <Joe> wou I can't type today
10:26:38 <Joe> wow*
10:26:38 <Sam> Apparently OF went.
10:26:39 <Dave from B™> Yes, I have seen it and it isn't a bubbler. It is a geyser!!
10:26:53 <Eric> static shows start around 1019
10:27:12 <Eric> Where did you see it listed Dave?
10:28:17 <Dave from B™> Wait...reread your question. I don't know if it is in any publication but it's eruption is thick compared to a "bubbler"
10:28:23 <ynpvisitor118> its both a bubbler and a geyser
10:29:00 <Dave from B™> Good pushes with overflow can create steam in Depression runoff channel as well
10:29:22 <ynpvisitor118> also Joe - Depression isnt alwyas erupting when theres steam down the runoff chanel, heavy poshes in steamy conditions wil put up a big trail of steam too
10:29:38 <Eric> If we are going to put it in GT as a thing, I wanted the most accurate name as possible.
10:30:30 <Dave from B™> Good idea Eric. I would ask TSB
10:31:22 <Eric> Ok...I will ping him
10:32:20 <ynpvisitor118> supposedly theres a map with names for the bubblers .. probably sent to old listserve so maybe lost
10:32:23 <Dave from B™> I was shocked at the size of south bubbler
10:32:47 <Dave from B™> How about Indy's indicator?:D
10:33:03 <Dave from B™> or L:ittle Indy?:D
10:33:27 <Dave from B™> I'm only joking
10:33:49 <Rice (17)> Junior
10:34:46 <Dave from B™> haha. I like it
10:36:21 <Eric> Yes, it is quite large eruption Dave, that is why I have been concerned with BHI activity, as I assume this hole could affect it.
10:36:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Personally I'd name it 'Beehive's Southern Indicator'
10:36:59 <ynpvisitor999®> or at least something along those lines
10:38:03 <ynpvisitor118> or Beehive South Bubbler since thats what it is being called .... you can argue over whether there needs to be an 's
10:39:25 <Dave from B™> 118, I would agree. That makes the most sense. It's odd to me that it is so consistent right now with the South Bubbler being active
10:40:58 <ynpvisitor118> is that why we had a no indi BH today?
10:41:43 <Dave from B™> Who knows. We had south bubbler and a 10-15 minute indy on Saturday
10:42:29 <ynpvisitor999®> might be that water is still flowing into Indicator, quenching some of the Indicators
10:42:40 <ynpvisitor999®> as well as lengthening Bee's intervals
10:43:37 <Dave from B™> Jarno, I discussed the water into indy issue with some gazers and I'm not sure that is why we are having longer intervals this year
10:43:58 <Dave from B™> Maybe, it is south bubbler who is at fault?
10:45:24 <Dave from B™> lc stated that there have been some years with water flowing into indicator and short intervals
10:46:51 <Dave from B™> I have another question I should post to the GG. Are longer interval Turbans MORE likely to lead to a higher % of Grand starts since Grand doesn't want to "weait" for Turban?
10:59:51 <Cooper> Huh, no bhi today
11:03:38 <Dave from B™> I did manage to run over a squirrel east of the park last week..no deer
11:05:43 <Eric> Dang...Dave 2 wildlife 1
11:07:00 <Eric> I could find no beehive map in the email archives
11:07:05 <Dave from B™> We saw a fox and a wolf carrying lunch
11:07:18 <Eric> Nice
11:07:47 <Dave from B™> Eric, I would reccomend a GG post to see if you can dig up a BH area map
11:09:20 <Eric> I am going to wait to see if I hear back from TSB, then I might take that route
11:17:26 <Eric> Never mind...I just posted on GG list :-D Figured someone might have some useful info :-D
11:19:50 <Dave from B™> Anything we can do to help wake up the GG is great.
11:20:19 <Eric> Yes, been over a month since the last post
11:20:29 <Cooper> What is GG
11:22:16 <Eric> GOSA email message board...link is over to the right
11:22:53 <Cooper> oh, thanks
11:26:24 <Eric> Does Mark or Dave or whatever the person in charge of the cam know it's down?
11:29:10 <Joe> Eric, Yes I have sent Dave and his supervisor an E-mail
11:29:21 <Eric> Thanks Joe
11:29:39 <Eric> So I have not read up...do people believe that Norris is in disturbance mode now?
11:30:06 <Joe> Unfortunately Dave is out until 7/8
11:30:41 <Joe> I dont know if his super is a roof of the inn type
11:31:19 <Rice (17)> The usual indicator of Norris Distrubrance is a big drop in PorkChop temp, but that has not been seen.
11:31:40 <Joe> The radio link is working, there is a camera problem again
11:32:30 <Dave from B™> Eric, I know there were some odd things going on in the Back Basin the day of the last eruption but it doesn't like we are in a D
11:38:26 <Eric> Ok...thanks.
11:40:32 <Dave from B™> I know the changes scared me enough that I wasn't going back on Saturday...I wanted a day in UGB
11:52:02 <Katie> Sheesh. I haven't been served a summons or a subpoena for IP evidence in several years and today I have one for sure and perhaps two coming - both relating to child porn. :(
11:52:33 <Dave from B™> fun:(
11:53:02 <Katie> Detective is 99% sure one is a child and that the result will be education contact and she might have enough without what I can provide, but the other she is already working on warrant.
11:58:09 <Katie> Should clarify - we are ISP. As such, we are in possession of information that can be needed by law enforcement and when served a subpoena or a summons, we must turn it over.
11:59:27 <Joe> It is not funny, but porn is big business, our Mc Donalds usted to be packed with people and their computers, they got wise and restricted the prom (how"), now there are almost no one in there with their computers.
12:00:51 <Joe> No one does "porn" but it is a billions of dollars business
12:02:38 <Cooper> OF
12:03:48 <Cooper> Yes I know it is ie, frogot to click it, it is fixed now
12:08:32 <Katie> MANY years ago, when we had a computer store/repair place as sister company, I was doing repairs on a computer assigned to a local principal/superintendent (small district), owned by the district, and discovered child porn on the computer. that really made me sick. Of course, law enforcement was contacted immediately. He was arrested and suspended from job pending investigation before day's end
12:10:19 <Dave from B™> Unfortunately, my wife has had to deal with this issue a couple times in her school district job
12:17:25 <Katie> In that case, members of the school board suspected, so I had been asked by the district, as computer owner, to check browser history while it was in for repair.
12:18:01 <Dave from B™> I was going to ask. You couldn't report in that case unless you were asked to look?
12:18:40 <Dave from B™> It's amazing how stupid peoiple who are using school computers can be
12:19:16 <Katie> When I found it, I called the internet crimes detective and the school board president both and reported what I found and LE came and seized the computer. He had been doing it on school time on school property with school computer - idiot as well as...
12:20:12 <Cooper> Dave from B™, it is true, quoting many kids in middle school "they wont catch me, if i delete it from my browsing history no one can ever find it"
12:20:23 <Katie> I wouldn't have been snooping if not asked to do so, but accidental discoveries would be reported - working with GEM (government, education, medical) sector, we are (were) mandatory reporters, agreed to when under contract
12:22:22 <Eric> I hope they catch them Katie...while I am not a big fan of ISP keeping these historical records, these are the few cases where I am glad they do!
12:23:09 <Katie> We actually don't even keep logs, per se. But we do do static IP assignments so I know who an IP was assigned to as long as it was recent enough.
12:23:15 <Eric> The real bad ones use VPN and tunneling, which the ISP records won't help with :-(
12:24:28 <Katie> I keep mail server logs for about 2 weeks, just long enough to be useful for technical troubleshooting and then I trash them. The amount of disc space I'd need for even a few years' of mail server logs would be staggering.
12:25:49 <Katie> There as a time about 15 years or so ago, when wi-fi was really taking off but many people weren't securing wi-fi access points, that we had a rash that were all bad guys parked on the street.
12:27:15 <Katie> During that time, the sheriff (a customer and a neighbor of mine) called and asked me to swing by his house and make sure his was secured. I said "we set yours up, and I did it personally, it was secured, but I'll swing by in case your son changed it."
12:27:28 <Eric> Yep, and wifi routers use to come with stupid administrative credentials by default, expecting end user to change them....thankfully they have fixed that.
12:29:07 <Katie> and they come with pre-configured wi-fi encryption now, too. But default admin passwords are still easy to find. We configure all customer routers here with their static IP and change the admin password and wi-fi key.
12:30:58 <Katie> (and we always have, but some people do remove wi-fi encryption because they "have no neighbors")
12:37:00 <Katie> so, the "big players" (YouTube, Snapchat, etc) have detection software and automated law enforcement reporting now, with content filters scanning. They report to LE based on location of record for an IP. That's where the tips the detective is working on came from.
12:37:36 <Katie> If you ever for a second thing big brother isn't watching...
12:38:10 <Rice (17)> If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about.
12:38:44 <Rice (17)> If they want to search my internet records and see the time I spend on this chat board I am fine with that.
12:39:30 <Katie> Nothing to worry about from law enforcement, anyway, but there are bad guys out there, too, expert at exploitation
12:39:50 <Eric> Meh, I am not a big fan of public surveillance. There is some fine line between overreach and getting the scum bags who deal in child pornography.
12:40:26 <Katie> Agree, Eric
12:42:09 <Katie> But I'm still putting a camera up at my house very soon. :)
12:42:15 <Rice (17)> So any bets on what day snow will be gone from Washburn? I say 7/28
12:42:39 <Katie> I'll take Aug 3
12:42:41 <Eric> Hey..I have one on my roof :-P
12:43:44 <Eric> Pointing right at my neighborhood mailbox. We had some mail thieves hitting our box.
12:44:11 <Rice (17)> They can also search all my planning for my corss country road trip, maybe they can find that hotel in Vegas that I canl't seem to find again
12:44:32 <Eric> What hotel are you looking for Rice?
12:44:44 <Cooper> Yuck, bad weather in Colorado Springs
12:44:57 <Cooper> bbl
12:45:06 <Eric> I stayed at Planet Hollywood for cheap and it's very nicely located in the center of the strip if you want a good location.
12:45:30 <Rice (17)> My problem is there are 6 of us, and most Vegas rooms only sleep 4.
12:45:47 <ynpvisitor39> I've got 4 Cameras outside of my house, how many inside? I do not know everything can have a camera embedded in it nowadays
12:45:51 <Eric> Yep, it will require 2 rooms for 6 people
12:46:25 <Rice (17)> Suites are too damn expensive, and two rooms make it hard also. I found a holiday inn express, sleeps 6, $134/night.
12:46:29 <Eric> Many of the vegas hotels can put 2 rooms together to form adjoining suites.
12:46:50 <Eric> You aren't really going to be doing much in your room in vegas :-P
12:47:10 <Rice (17)> But they can't guarantee ajoining rooms, so we could be floors seperated so I dont want to do that.
12:47:12 <Eric> Just get a couple rooms at the same hotel and run with it if you are all adults
12:47:32 <Eric> Vegas is all about being out and about
12:47:33 <Rice (17)> 2 adults, 4 kids, so cant do that.
12:47:40 <Eric> ahhh
12:48:09 <Eric> well, vegas is not kid friendly...so outskirt hotels like holiday inns might be your better option
12:48:12 <Rice (17)> We are good, got a pool, a place to do laurndry, and breakfast. Then off to death valley in July.
12:48:12 <Dave from B™> put them on the floor
12:48:28 <Eric> Nice...I like death valley a lot
12:48:30 <Dave from B™> We stuffed our family of 5 in rooms of 4 all the time
12:48:43 <Katie> Luxor has roll-away beds.
12:48:59 <Katie> MGM Park does NOT have roll-away beds
12:48:59 <Rice (17)> Done that before Dave, but after sleeping in our pop up camper for 1+ week, I wanted them to have beds.
12:49:52 <Rice (17)> I was really surprised how hard it was too find a reasonably priced room, for the family.
12:49:57 <Dave from B™> I understand Rice
12:50:26 <Rice (17)> Oh yea, and all those hotels with fancy water parks, pools close at 5 pm, whats up with that.
12:50:40 <Eric> Vegas is NOT kid friendly!
12:51:27 <Eric> They turned off that family vacation thing about 15 years ago...I assume circus circus will be demolished here pretty soon.
12:52:15 <Rice (17)> The waterslide in the pool in Mitchell SD, was open till 10 pm. I hear you Eric.
12:52:55 <Dave from B™> Tell them you're a high roller and your 2 rooms are free:)
12:53:41 <Dave from B™> I find it hard to believe no one can guarantee connecting rooms
12:54:05 <Dave from B™> 2 rooms at Excalibur wouldn't cost you much unless kids like to play games in their basement
12:54:08 <Rice (17)> I even tried one of my coworkers, Timeshare places. Nothing for 6, so two rooms needed, and still have to sit through 90 min preso, and pay full price for 2nd room. Nope on that.
12:56:11 <Rice (17)> Battery died in Van Saturday, so I got that out of the way before we left.
13:03:13 <Katie> That reminded me to call and check on my Wrangler. And good thing, too. They guy who made the appointment thought I'd come in to check it in so didn't have service order written up. I dropped it off last night. They were wondering what to do with it.
13:04:44 <Rice (17)> Your Welcome
13:06:09 <ynpvisitor12> Katie, I've had that happen too. "We thought you would call us"
13:07:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the reminder...need to check on my Deer Mowing SUV
13:08:00 <Katie> ...and I suggested last week that they order tires last week. Oh well. Not an emergency. 3 weeks ago they thought my tires would last the summer but they didn't know I'd put 5,000 miles on in 2 weeks. Now they aren't staying balanced.
13:08:54 <Katie> Wranglers don't ride like a Cadillac to be begin with, so anything that makes them ride worse (55MPH shimmy-skakes now) can push them to intolerable
13:09:21 <Katie> Now I'm driving our 2019 Tundra, and it does ride like a Cadillac, so a few days of it will have me completely spoiled.
13:10:13 <Eric> Yes, that is a nice truck Katie :-D
13:11:14 <Eric> I am thinking about looking for an old/cheap 4x4 to drive and leave at trailheads while I hike
13:11:36 <Dave from B™> My Highlander will be done wednesday:)
13:11:53 <Eric> I don't want to leave a nice vehicle there, as they get busted into and sometimes vandalized
13:12:02 <Eric> Nice Dave...glad they are getting it done
13:12:18 <Dave from B™> I wasn't expecting it for another week or so
13:12:52 <Dave from B™> Eric, just ride your bike to the trailhead for more exercise:)
13:13:42 <Katie> Good plan, Eric.
13:13:55 <Katie> Good news, Dave.
13:14:29 <Eric> Dave, my bicycle wouldn't make it to some of the trailheads I "drive" to :-P
13:14:30 <Dave from B™> And, I've decided to slow down from now on
13:14:47 <Dave from B™> You or your bicycle?:D
13:14:58 <Eric> Plus, I don't need any more exercise then I already plan on getting while hikiing
13:15:56 <Eric> If I have energy left over after the hike, I didn't push myself far enough :-D
13:17:59 <Dave from B™> I did enjoy our two 5 mile round trip hikes in YNP: Slough Creek to first meadow and Hellroaring Trailhead to Hellroaring Creek
13:19:05 <Eric> Nice...did you get to see any wildlife?
13:19:40 <Eric> I really wish we would have driven up to hellroaring for our hike instead of doing that hike at OF, but oh well...I still enjoyed the company :-D
13:20:41 <Dave from B™> Yep, I hope we get a chance to do much more hiking together
13:21:45 <Dave from B™> We saw 8 bears, a fox and a wolf carrying lunch in its mouth, bighorn sheep, plus lots of elk in velevet and bison
13:22:23 <Dave from B™> And, tons of wildflowers. Michelle and I are already talking about getting back to the northern part of the park next year
13:25:58 <Eric> Sounds like a good plan...the North end seems like a great place in the spring
13:26:16 <Eric> Probably get's a little hot/dry later in the year
13:28:03 <Dave from B™> Yeah, it does.
13:40:08 <Casey> Sooo... Dave's fault?
13:45:25 <ynpvisitor39> Casey, It is always Dave's fault
13:46:16 <Casey> Good. I haven't been on much lately. Glad protocol hasn't changed.
13:47:30 <Dave from B™> 39 didn't get the memo
13:47:40 <Dave from B™> Jarno already admitted to this one
13:47:59 <Dave from B™> Craig gets home shortly. Maybe he ran into the camera
13:48:19 <ynpvisitor39> He is young, what does he know :)
13:49:38 <ynpvisitor5> Yellowstone rules of thumb: It’s always a red-tail, it’s always Mt. Holmes, It’s always a coyote and it's always Dave’s fault :)
13:50:34 <Dave from B™> and, it's usually a black bear too
13:50:57 <ynpvisitor5> :)
13:51:12 <Katie> and a ground squirrel (not a weasel) and a marmot (not a wolverine)
13:52:39 <Dave from B™> There was someone next to me that though a juvenile marmot was something else because it was TOO small
13:52:47 <Dave from B™> at
13:52:48 <Dave from B™> grand
14:01:59 <Dave from B™> At this pace, SB sets a new annual calendar year record by Sept 1
14:02:15 <Dave from B™> I probably just jinxed it
14:26:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Not much from Steamboat so far, Cistern full and overflowing with boil
14:28:20 <Dave from B™> Next SB is a 4th of July celebration...about 6 am
14:31:19 <ynpvisitor999®> it's about time the Labor Day eruption gets a successor
14:34:05 <Cooper> From NPS about webcam, "July 1, 2019: The live-stream webcam is currently offline. We are working to get it back online. Thanks for your patience."
14:34:26 <ynpvisitor999®> well, at least they stated the obvious
14:35:18 <Dave from B™> This has been a long season already for the webcam dept
14:35:36 <Cooper> at they are somewhat observent
14:35:53 <Cooper> I am not counting on any streaming in the winter
15:01:35 <ynpvisitor33> it's hard to have any sympathy for the web cam dept. They had a perfectly good cam (still in place btw) and instead installed this disaster. They should admit failure and return to what works
15:15:18 <ynpvisitor92> no one could have foreseen this webcam disaster, but in 12 days it will have been a disaster for three months, a decision has to be made, but with Yellowstone Forever involved the camera may get the short end of the stick
15:17:25 <LindaG> Joe, wow just saw huge hail theat happening ing in your town. Hope it missed you.
15:17:50 <LindaG> *that's happening in your town
15:19:00 <ynpvisitor92> Yes, thanks my place was on the edge of it, lucky again
15:19:16 <LindaG> 👍
15:22:58 <ynpvisitor92> Emergency Management sent out tornado warnings, we got everything that comes with tornado's except for the tornado
15:26:14 <LindaG> Well that's good
15:26:51 <LindaG> Riverton weather posted pics of hail
15:28:34 <Eric> Visitor33....ahhh, yes, many people warned against this cam being wireless right up front. It was a bad idea and foresaw the failure coming.
15:29:27 <Eric> Elk on static at mammoth parade...many visitors way too close
15:31:02 <Dave from B™> I did see a bison psaw the ground with a visitor too close...and he was standing behind an open car door
15:31:13 <Dave from B™> the visitor, that is
15:42:02 <ynpvisitor50> If they ever fix it the cam will work great.
15:44:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand 1540 T--
15:47:58 <Eric> I see the National Park Service is going to spend part of their budget on an expanded 4th of July parade!
15:48:25 <Eric> Probably enough budget to fix every boardwalk in the park.
15:49:21 <ynpvisitor999®> sad
15:49:47 <Eric> His North Korean style armored vehicle parade to be included!
15:50:03 <Eric> He always has been a little jealous of Kim Jong Un
15:50:34 <ynpvisitor999®> also with people running besides it?
15:50:42 <Eric> Isn't it good that we contribute part of the park service budget for this?
15:51:00 <Eric> I hope so....lot's and lot's of miliary people running beside his limos
15:51:09 <Eric> The biggest and bestest of parades!
15:51:22 <Eric> woops...hold on, let me change my screen name
15:51:35 <Ed Anger> MAGA!
15:51:53 <Ed Anger> Mary is my friend...
15:52:04 <Ed Anger> She pointed me to your great website.
15:52:10 <Dave from B™> I can't remember the last parade I went to
15:52:22 <Ed Anger> I heard the supervolcano was going to blow!
15:53:05 <Ed Anger> Well...you should go to DC and celebrate america with Trumps "Salute to America"
15:53:24 <Ed Anger> America's favorite president will be there!
15:54:14 <ynpvisitor999®> I have a different opinion on that - but I won't mix myself that much further in that discussion
15:56:40 <ynpvisitor69> Ed Anger, is he using park money for that farce parade?
15:56:57 <Ed Anger> Yep...everything is coming out of National Park Budget
15:57:25 <Ed Anger> We need to have tanks on the streets of Washington DC so America can be Great!
15:57:31 <ynpvisitor69> The whole cost?
15:57:36 <Ed Anger> yep
15:57:47 <ynpvisitor69> Wow, sickening
15:58:15 <Ed Anger> But the greatest president ever will be there to speak...it has to be special.
15:58:33 <ynpvisitor69> Campaign rally.
15:58:43 <Ed Anger> We don't need fixed webcams or boardwalks that work....sacrifice!
15:58:44 <ynpvisitor69> I will not tune in
15:58:53 <Ed Anger> MAGA!
15:58:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C | 9m05s
15:59:14 <Eric> Ok...that was painful enough :-(
15:59:32 <ynpvisitor69> Too funny Eric
16:01:15 <Dave from B™> Do Canadians complain about their gov't as much as we do?
16:01:21 <Eric> Ed Anger, the same guy who said migrants speak "chili-pepperese" Racist/Crazy Garbage is what he spouts.
16:01:33 <Eric> But he loves Trump!
16:01:57 <Eric> and it's not surprising
16:04:15 <Dave from B™> Wher's Kevin today?
16:08:50 <Cooper> Grrr, still down
16:15:21 <Dave from B™> I'm outta here. Have a great evening everyone!
16:15:35 <Cooper> Bye Dave
16:16:35 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Dave
16:22:50 <Katie> Anyone want to buy a kidney? I need tires (no surprise), ball joints and alignment
16:23:56 <Katie> It's the ball joints (and labor) that wasn't entirely expected. I planned on alignment getting new tires and also felt it was pulling (ever so slightly, but there) to the right (and I always get alignment when I spring for new tires)
16:24:53 <ynpvisitor999®> please keep the kidney yourself
16:27:35 <Eric> What kind of jeep, I might buy it off you for cheap :-P
16:29:24 <Katie> 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Sahara edition - but I'm keeping it 2 more years
16:29:53 <Katie> Oh, and I need a new rear differential, too (but that's just annoying and my mechanic friends say if I just turn up the awesome sound system I won't notice anymore)
16:30:37 <Eric> Sounds perfect :-D I need something with some character for my trailhead runs.
16:30:49 <Eric> But bummer on two years...oh well
16:31:40 <Katie> She's pretty. Too pretty to leave as trailhead bait.
16:32:06 <Eric> ohh, I want ugly
16:32:21 <Eric> ugly but mechanically sound is better.
16:32:34 <Eric> old landcruiser or CJ jeep would be good
16:32:51 <Eric> maybe even beat up cherokee
16:34:30 <Katie> She will be mechanically sound, have new trail shoes (that's the biggest $$ - $1500), and be pretty again by Wednesday. Rear diff is just noisy and has been that way for a year...
16:35:46 <Eric> I saw a lot of gambler 500 trucks coming back from Gambler 500 Oregon
16:35:53 <Eric> Yesterday
16:43:55 <Katie> I put 55,000 miles on the shoes she's wearing now. So I got my money's worth. Ordered a new set of the same tires to replace them.
17:01:37 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
17:12:22 <CraigC> nice webcam
17:13:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1711, visible on static
17:15:19 <CraigC> hey Jaqrno
17:15:22 <CraigC> Jarno
17:15:29 <CraigC> yep, Aurum
17:17:09 <ynpvisitor999®> hi Craig
17:52:05 <ynpvisitor93> For the record for the cam bashers. Radio was up this morning but cam down. Read the log.
17:53:07 <ynpvisitor93> Katie, new tires are nice, but I have a good outlet for used tires and can put new used tires on every year for like 200 bucks.
18:10:07 <ynpvisitor34> Phil Landis included a map of the various little vents around Beehive in his 1988 report. Perhaps someone should check that map.
18:18:30 <ynpvisitor999®> that Phil Landis map is likely the one I'm looking for. No idea where I saw it, but I have seen it.
18:25:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off. Enjoy watching the static
18:35:23 <ynpvisitor19> Of ie
19:55:27 <ynpvisitor95> It's alive!!!!!
19:59:06 <ynpvisitor3> Whooohooo
19:59:15 <ynpvisitor100> Yay
20:00:47 <LindaG> I wonder why it healed

20:16:02 <Joe> Was there a Lion at 2002

20:33:17 <Joe> LC
20:34:56 <ynpvisitor1> Anyone call the bell desk and ask if thy can take a duster up in the morning and take care of our friends home?
20:36:33 <ynpvisitor1> One of these. data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQAAAQABAAD/2wBDAAoHBwgHBgoICAgLCgoLDhgQDg0NDh0VFhEYIx8lJCIfIiEmKzcvJik0KSEiMEExNDk7Pj4+JS5ESUM8SDc9Pjv/2wBDAQoLCw4NDhwQEBw7KCIoOzs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozv/wAARCAEeASwDASIAAhEBAxEB/8QAHwAAAQUBAQEBAQEAAAAAAAAAAAECAwQFBgcICQoL/8QAtRAAAgEDAwIEAwUFBAQAAAF9AQIDAAQRBRIhMUEGE1FhByJxFDKBkaEII0KxwRVS0fAkM2JyggkKFh
20:36:44 <ynpvisitor1> Wow, that id not work
20:37:51 <ynpvisitor1> How about this. https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/a0c57ae2-a176-473b-b518-9015a42958b6/svn/ettore-dusters-31028-64_1000.jpg
20:38:24 <Joe> that will work
20:38:58 <ynpvisitor1> Kevin, I hope your pop is making it easy for you. Hard enough to deal with all the red tape these days.
20:39:55 <ynpvisitor1> I seem to recall some late night product pusher had a electric one once.
20:40:25 <ynpvisitor1> Did they do anything to the cam, or it just started to work?
20:40:57 <Joe> no idea here
21:03:56 <Joe> Bulger
21:09:05 <Joe> Turban
21:17:33 <Joe> first cam fail
21:22:23 <Joe> 2nd
21:27:47 <Joe> third fail
21:32:13 <Joe> fail
21:36:51 <Joe> fail
21:40:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. I was so tired I fell asleep on the keyboard with the iPad on my lap!
21:40:57 <Joe> fail
21:44:05 <Joe> Riverside and Grand ie
21:44:50 <ynpvisitor89> Kevin, at least you did not quit.
21:45:43 <Kevin L™🌵> I just ran out of gas.
21:46:16 <ynpvisitor89> Better then hiting a rock
21:46:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a deer.
21:47:03 <Joe> the OF may have been a short but with the cam fail, who knows?
21:47:06 <ynpvisitor89> You remember to feed the chickens today?
21:47:25 <ynpvisitor89> Deer are Dave's thing.
21:47:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. They dumped their water again. :P
21:48:08 <ynpvisitor89> Mine did that when one tried to roost on it.
21:53:07 <ynpvisitor89> Stupid birds. If they did not taste so good and make good deserts out of the eggs, they would go extinct in a few weeks.
21:53:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I think you are right
22:01:00 <ynpvisitor89> Time to watch tv show on odd birds. Seen it but worth the repeat.
22:02:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Sound fun. I am almost through High Sierra. Good Bogart film.
