06:21:27 <Joe> south and west bubblers going since seen at 0559
06:21:37 <KittyM> Good morning, Joe
06:22:00 <Joe> Hi KittyM
06:27:07 <Joe> I was not quick enough to move much further :(
06:27:52 <KittyM> looks like its been failing a lot
06:28:41 <Joe> 172 times since 2135 last night
06:28:55 <KittyM> oh my
06:30:01 <Joe> @4 hour period before that had 352 failures
06:30:13 <Joe> 24 hour*
06:30:34 <KittyM> wow, do you think it's getting worse?
06:30:56 <Joe> Yes I Do
06:31:32 <KittyM> :(
06:40:10 <BWaggs> Do the lodge guest have access to WIFI internet?
06:41:14 <BWaggs> I ask because if they do, and they are using the same internet feeds as the camera, then the cameara issue is almost certainly due to bandwidth issues.
06:41:54 <KittyM> When we stayed at that lodge on the lake we did not, but I don't know about the ones around OF
06:42:47 <Joe> I think they do, but there is a daily fee to use it
06:43:05 <BWaggs> Curious, it would make sense. I work in IT and see this sorta stuff often
06:44:55 <BWaggs> I know the kids now stream shows and music on their phones like they are TVs. That cuts into the available bandwidth and causes drops. If a streaming camera drops, it will take time to reconnect.
06:45:03 <Joe> The camera has been up since 0631 without fail, I think I'm going to pass out :)
06:45:56 <BWaggs> Lol... Joe, Was that 4 hr period with the high drops in the middle of the night or in the evening?
06:46:07 <Joe> south bubbler is on again
06:47:30 <Joe> Pretty much spread out during the 24 hourd
06:48:51 <Joe> There were some periods like now that the cam did not fail
06:51:03 <KittyM> don't speak too soon about "now" LOL
06:51:07 <Joe> we are at 20 minutes without a failure
06:55:29 <BWaggs> fingers crossed!
06:56:01 <Joe> Everyone in the lodges must be at breakfast with phones off :)
06:56:43 <Joe> Hi Jarno
06:56:49 <ynpvisitor999®> now that would be a miracle on its own these days, Joe :)
06:56:50 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:57:28 <Joe> Hi Kat, Have fun today
06:57:28 <BWaggs> Morning
06:57:36 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kat
06:58:32 <KittyM> Morning
06:58:49 <ynpvisitor999®> and it goes down again... Going to be a fun day :(
06:58:51 <Joe> ARGH!!!
06:58:52 <Kat> Hi Joe, Jarno, BWaggs. Knowing what the cam has been doing the last few days, I hope this morning is not too bad!
06:59:06 <Joe> FAIL!!!
06:59:18 <KittyM> dang
06:59:23 <Kat> But.....:thumbsdown:
06:59:26 <Joe> did not make 30 min
06:59:43 <Kat> Hey Kitty
06:59:46 <ynpvisitor999®> I do hope we've reached the top of cam outage insanity yesterday
06:59:58 <KittyM> Hey Kat
07:00:05 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie
07:00:09 <ynpvisitor999®> no, ns
07:03:06 <ynpvisitor999®> fun to see the West Bubblers showed some action too in company with South
07:04:16 <Joe> west still active
07:07:19 <Joe> I sent an email to DaveK asking him to speed up the control view watching that pulsing every second is driving me crazier
07:07:55 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:08:10 <Joe> AL
07:08:57 <Kat> All of it drives me crazy! LOL
07:12:57 <Joe> Last night for the 9 hours that I was watching There was an average of 20 fails per hour
07:13:28 <Kat> Thats awful!
07:13:56 <Joe> I think Bee will erupt during your shift Kat
07:15:12 <Kat> I think so too, we'll see! Hope that the same thing won't happen as happened yesterday! Cam went down!
07:16:27 <Joe> Yes I was Driving for DaveM, not a fun day
07:17:19 <Kat> I would have put it on OF and called it day ! LOL
07:18:31 <Joe> I know DaveK does not want anymore reports, but I sent the past few days and last nights anyway
07:19:02 <Joe> AB
07:19:10 <Kat> Saw some frustrations posted on FB
07:20:55 <Kat> MC
07:21:07 <Joe> I don't do FB so I miss those
07:24:09 <Joe> No CraigC this morning? must be practicing sleeping in his trailer
07:24:51 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
07:25:07 <Kat> :)
07:28:01 <Kat> LC
07:28:27 <Joe> Only two fails the past hour, Kat you are magic!
07:29:11 <Kat> Shhhhh! Don't tell the cam!
07:29:47 <Joe> The cam and I are not on speaking terms
07:30:30 <Kat> :) Folks hanging out at Bee already!
07:31:09 <Kat> or not...
07:36:11 <Kat> Uh Oh
07:36:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe, I think you'd be better off not commenting on the cam's performances for the next little while :P
07:36:59 <Kat> :D
07:37:59 <Joe> yes people may throw rocks my way
07:40:54 <Kat> Here we go!!
08:04:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
08:04:23 <Kat> :daisy:
08:04:26 <lori lurking> Cancelled OFL Frontier and the first night to go was Sept. 11. It was the hardest for me to get in the OFSL Frontier. Weird.
08:04:51 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin, Lori and Mike
08:04:59 <Kat> Hi All!
08:05:00 <lori lurking> good morning all
08:05:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:07:43 <Joe> Hello everybody Hello
08:08:31 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
08:09:06 <Kevin L™🌵> About time you woke up.
08:11:21 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
08:11:27 <Dave from B™> Warehouse mgr is out for a few days...playing downstairs earlier
08:21:25 <Mike J> Good morning everyone. (Sorry for the delay - a lot of in and out of the room giong on.)
08:22:30 <Kat> Hi Mike
08:25:48 <Kat> L
08:25:51 <Kat> LC
08:39:19 <Dave from B™> haha
08:46:59 <Kat> OF Finally!
08:51:39 <Kat> Riverside
08:53:28 <Katie> Good morning
08:54:13 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Katie
08:55:08 <Kat> Hi Katie
08:56:06 <Kat> LC
08:58:49 <Kat> South Bybblers
08:58:57 <Kat> bubblers*
08:59:21 <Kat> stopped already
08:59:25 <Kat> :)
08:59:42 <Kat> nevermind!
09:09:34 <Kat> Bee splash!
09:16:52 <Kat> Who's got the fly swatter?
09:19:03 <ynpvisitor30> for the Bee?
09:20:13 <Kat> For that stupid bug that's been all over the cam this AM.
09:20:44 <ynpvisitor999®> South ie (possibly late)
09:20:54 <ynpvisitor999®> nevermind on that last part I think
09:21:06 <Kat> South and splash
09:23:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Does anyone know what feature on 19 September 1994 may have been known as "Opal Spring"? The duration was 51m, so I think it's unlikely that it was Opal Pool.
09:27:02 <Kat> Why such the Grand prediction difference for GT and NPS?
09:28:35 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely it's a calculating error
09:28:49 <ynpvisitor999®> calculation*
09:28:57 <Kat> Uh Oh
09:29:14 <ynpvisitor999®> sometimes also happens for Castle
09:29:30 <Dave from B™> NPS window makes more sense
09:29:39 <ynpvisitor12> I think NPS is using a last 5 average to be a little more dynamic, but I could be wrong
09:30:22 <ynpvisitor12> last 5 or so*
09:31:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
09:32:38 <ynpvisitor999®> tour guide, please turn the people's faces you're guiding towards Lion
09:35:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I just saw an MC splash
09:35:16 <Mike J> Love when I come back to the page to something as beautiful as this Lion
09:35:33 <Eliseium> And you can watch it for a few seconds
09:35:45 <Kat> Yeah Lion!
09:36:35 <ynpvisitor12> Failure rate is down to 5 per hour, "that is a good thing"
09:36:59 <Kat> How do people walk away from beautiful eruption?
09:37:09 <ynpvisitor999®> well, it's better than 20 times an hour, #12...
09:37:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Kat, it's probably "This is not Old Faithful and the duration is way too long. I'm outta here, need to shop at Walmart."
09:37:54 <ynpvisitor999®> South ie
09:38:39 <Mike J> I can't count the number of times I've heard someone say about almost any other geyser "This is better than Old Faithful"
09:38:50 <Mike J> Yes it is! That's how you get addicted.
09:38:55 <Kat> Bye Jarno!
09:39:35 <ynpvisitor12> well now...I can tell martha back home " saw Lion geyser" now lets go get something else
09:39:35 <ynpvisitor999®> no, I'm not going away. I was quoting what the usual OF tourist would say after being persuaded to walk around the basin
09:40:03 <Kat> Hahahaha Jarno - sorry!
09:40:32 <ynpvisitor999®> plus, I don't recall that we even have a Walmart here in the Netherlands, so there's that :)
09:41:20 <ynpvisitor999®> though if we do, it's probably at Schiphol, some 2½-3 hours or so away from me by train
09:41:23 <Kat> Laughing about that too Jarno!
09:42:10 <Kat> I have really good wolf watching friends from Netherlands!
09:42:39 <Kat> Kitt is in the house!
09:43:14 <ynpvisitor999®> oh yeah, wolves. They were in the news about 1-2 months ago, as they had settled in and had pups
09:44:01 <Kat> They come to the Park alot
09:49:09 <Cooper> Good Morning Everyone
09:49:18 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Cooper
09:49:26 <Cooper> Glad I did not miss Bee, and got into a Lion Series. :)
09:49:43 <Cooper> Jarno, is it the afternoon in the Netherlands
09:49:56 <ynpvisitor999®> late afternoon, 1749 as of typing
09:50:58 <Cooper> How's the cam been
09:51:07 <ynpvisitor999®> improving
09:51:18 <Cooper> Good
09:53:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban 0949:31
09:56:50 <Cooper> AB
09:58:12 <Kat> Katie - do you have the cam?
09:58:27 <Katie> I logged in, but then realized it wasn't time and released
09:59:22 <Kat> No problem - I've been alternating down and hill for Grand and Bee.
10:00:00 <Kat> You can take - I was hoping for a Bee but not to Bee...LOL
10:02:11 <ynpvisitor46> Don't know what it is, but it is nice
10:02:28 <Eliseium> Is that a Rocket or a Grotto start?
10:03:33 <Kat> Looks closer to Rocket to me..
10:04:52 <Casey> Morning
10:04:53 <Katie> This outage looks like Pixelcaster - controls are up
10:04:56 <Cooper> Hey Casey
10:05:03 <Casey> Hi Cooper
10:05:53 <Katie> I'm trying to watch static for Indy...
10:07:04 <ynpvisitor46> OF Static
10:07:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket ie
10:07:14 <Katie> crap!
10:08:44 <Cooper> Meh, it's OKAY Katie, ti was not even in window
10:08:52 <Cooper> it***
10:08:53 <Kat> Quick!
10:10:47 <Katie> Now OF is in window. ha ha
10:11:05 <Kat> :)
10:11:39 <Kat> Either you and wait for OF or it's ie when you go there! :)
10:13:19 <Kat> should say wait and wait!
10:17:08 <Cooper> Grand
10:17:09 <ynpvisitor19> :grand:
10:17:12 <Cooper> 10:17:00
10:17:29 <Kat> Wow!
10:21:54 <Kat> Awesome Grand - wish I was there!
10:22:38 <ynpvisitor12> Hey Kat, I see you did a YNP flyover
10:22:49 <ynpvisitor61> No place to park, lines at the bathrooms, I like may, even though it is getting crowded.
10:23:03 <Kat> I may have! I'll fix it!
10:23:10 <ynpvisitor12> :)
10:23:47 <Katie> I want that teleporter that Kat has
10:24:09 <Eliseium> Nice action
10:24:54 <ynpvisitor999®> 8m
10:24:54 <Kat> It's funny - sometimes I don't check wc and it's posts as wc and sometimes not! It's fixed! Thanks for the heads up!
10:25:01 <Cooper> 8 Minutes
10:25:06 <Kat> Katie - I'll lend it to you! LOL
10:25:42 <Kat> I guess I was really wanting to be there! :p
10:26:46 <Eliseium> ...
10:26:58 <ynpvisitor999®> 10m
10:27:01 <Cooper> 10 Minutes
10:27:28 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
10:29:08 <Eliseium> No surprises
10:29:11 <ynpvisitor999®> -1C so far
10:30:14 <Cooper> Time for Bee
10:30:16 <ynpvisitor999®> G1C based on Turban 1017 and Grand 1016 (both in-basin)
10:30:48 <ynpvisitor61> Yes it is, I have to go. Enjoy Lions, Bees and Aurums.
10:30:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto quiet
10:31:29 <Katie> Pump pumping
10:32:14 <ynpvisitor999®> cya #61
10:32:15 <Cooper> BSB?
10:32:20 <Cooper> bye 61
10:32:29 <Cooper> Yes
10:33:36 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G1C | 10m19s
10:34:31 <ynpvisitor999®> going to be a relatively quiet hour now (provided Bee doesn't go, that is)
10:34:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion is actually up next (some 20 minutes away max)
10:39:57 <Katie> Bee was splashing a moment ago
10:41:29 <Katie> We could be setting up for a Lion/Bee dual. That would be fun.
10:41:53 <Kat> That would be awesome!
10:42:11 <Katie> there was one during my shift a few weeks ago. :0
10:42:45 <Kat> Splash Spalsh!
10:44:17 <Eliseium> Splish Spilsh!
10:45:25 <ynpvisitor88> I am holing out for pump
10:45:39 <Kat> hahaha Just noticed my mistake!
10:45:52 <Kat> Thats even funnier!
10:45:58 <Eliseium> Sound FX
10:46:01 <Cooper> LC
10:50:34 <Cooper> Lion
10:51:05 <Cooper> BSB
10:55:00 <Cooper> BSB Quit, had good response from Bee
10:55:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Watch for an Aurum BH dual.
10:55:16 <Cooper> Good, Tara is at Bee
10:56:07 <Cooper> The wind needs to make a 180 Degree Flip
10:56:25 <Cooper> Looks like Bee might go in OF window
10:56:47 <ynpvisitor88> Cooper broke Pump.
10:56:56 <ynpvisitor88> There he is part of the group now.
10:57:14 <ynpvisitor88> Dang now it goes
10:57:25 <ynpvisitor88> But it was short
10:58:00 <Dave from B™> wow....lots of people on GH
10:58:07 <ynpvisitor88> Well, enjoy bees
10:58:20 <Cooper> I did break Pump, I also Broke Giantess, the first time I ever got onto the webcam(I did not know chat or GT), was the Day after Giantess went, and it has not gone seince
10:58:51 <Cooper> bye 88, thanks for Beeing the Bee Sacrifice
11:00:00 <Cooper> Looking closer at my Lightning Picture last night, I realized just now that the lighting is individual strands
11:06:27 <Cooper> Hey Jake
11:08:26 <Cooper> BSB
11:09:13 <Eliseium> I Bee back
11:11:29 <Jake> wow, what a pre-Bee crowd! the more people that stand on the boardwalk there, the longer Beehive waits to erupt because of the differential in the hydrostatic pressure gradient interacting with the subsurface fracture complex
11:11:57 <Katie> ha ha Jake
11:12:15 <Eliseium> That's jargonese for "fickle"
11:14:46 <Jake> um, it's called "science"
11:14:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Morning was high and boiling well prior to Fountain and overflowed during Fountain
11:15:47 <Cooper> WB Jarno
11:16:03 <Dave from B™> Morning seems to be getting close...I would say 1 of next 2 Fountains should include a Morning and maybe more
11:16:16 <Dave from B™> As in a Trifecta
11:16:52 <Cooper> Depression 1106
11:17:30 <Eliseium> Science: https://phys.org/news/2015-10-zeno-effect-verifiedatoms-wont.html
11:18:38 <Cooper> Okay Cam, we get it you do not like Depression
11:18:45 <Cooper> up
11:21:42 <Cooper> Lion went at 22:35 Last night
11:21:42 <ynpvisitor23> Trifecta? There has been little to no activity out of Morning’s Thief. I would not think a Trifecta is imminent.
11:22:02 <Katie> Now that Bee doesn't have time to complete performance before OF window, I want it to wait.
11:22:30 <Cooper> it heard you, and did not like it
11:24:13 <Katie> I'll try it this way: Bee, don't let OF upstage you! Let OF be the opening act!
11:25:28 <Cooper> I bet we miss Aurum while on OF
11:26:05 <ynpvisitor45> Is there a rule that you have to show OF?
11:26:30 <Katie> yup
11:26:44 <Katie> It's the Prime Directive.
11:27:13 <ynpvisitor45> I see.
11:27:19 <Cooper> The 2nd Prime Directive: I must fail and make the people who watch me mad
11:28:05 <ynpvisitor45> Yes, it has been pretty frustrating lately. Especially yesterday during Bee!!!
11:28:12 <Cooper> BSB
11:29:50 <ynpvisitor112> cant we have both in the frame?
11:30:36 <ynpvisitor113> FYI Mornings Thief did erupt yesterday, forst report in 6 days
11:30:46 <Katie> 112 - nope
11:34:43 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Lori
11:34:46 <Cooper> Hey Lori!
11:35:08 <Lori S> Hello Everybody Hello!
11:35:26 <ynpvisitor50> The circle violates the Prime Directive, those responsible need to be held accountable.
11:35:27 <Katie> hello hello
11:35:45 <Lori S> This is not the Bee I was looking for. LOL
11:36:31 <Katie> I asked Bee to let OF be the opening act and not get upstaged.
11:40:59 <Jake> https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v-ZaP92pjhS6xThXnL85M6TtVJfqGpJzp1F2XpZB9y0/edit?usp=sharing
11:41:10 <Jake> ^ webcam uptime chart
11:42:28 <BWaggs> cool tight shot....
11:42:29 <Cooper> OF
11:44:14 <Jake> bbl
11:44:32 <Cooper> Bye
11:45:50 <Cooper> Okay, Bee/Aurum time
11:52:42 <Katie> Lion
11:54:29 <Betty> hi all
11:54:33 <Cooper> Hey Betty
11:54:45 <Betty> hey Cooper

11:55:15 <Betty> no, lasts till sunday
11:55:57 <Betty> I´lll leave in about 20 min
11:56:42 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
11:56:50 <ynpvisitor86> What is the fair for? Celebrating an occasion?
11:56:57 <Betty> evening Jarno
11:58:36 <Lori S> Hi Betty.
11:58:51 <Lori S> Off to lunch so I'm sure Bee will go. BBL
11:59:16 <Cooper> Bye Lori, thanks for Being the Bee sacrifice today:)
11:59:39 <Betty> the Count of my county initiated it 217 years ago as a cattle and horse market
11:59:57 <Betty> hi and bye Lori
12:00:01 <Cooper> BSB
12:00:49 <ynpvisitor86> I bet they don’t sell cattle and horses there now.
12:00:59 <Betty> nope
12:01:11 <Dave from B™> Based on last 2 BH intervals we are close real close
12:01:12 <Betty> but there still is a horse race
12:01:22 <Betty> bubblers
12:01:42 <ynpvisitor86> Sounds like a County or State Fair in the US
12:02:21 <Cooper> YUM, Nachos for lunch
12:02:47 <Betty> think it is about the same.
12:03:11 <Betty> it´s a small version of the Oktoberfest :-)
12:03:22 <Betty> bee splash
12:04:18 <ynpvisitor86> Good food, lots of people. Do they do pig races?
12:04:57 <Betty> no
12:09:40 <ynpvisitor86> The pig races are really funny. A crowd favorite here.
12:14:43 <ynpvisitor86> Pig race: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lnjJm4DU7-c
12:15:11 <Betty> bubblers
12:16:17 <Cooper> that is hilarious
12:16:40 <Cooper> Betty, you want to enter it
12:16:55 <Betty> they are in
12:17:10 <Cooper> oh, thanks
12:17:23 <Betty> Craig entered
12:17:42 <Cooper> Hey, He went back
12:17:53 <Betty> seems so
12:17:59 <Cooper> he should wave
12:19:57 <ynpvisitor86> Hope Craig gets his SB
12:20:04 <Betty> off to the fair, enjoy BH
12:20:14 <Cooper> Bye Betty
12:21:59 <Casey> Hi Craig
12:22:33 <Craig ugb> Hey
12:22:34 <Cooper> Wave again
12:22:44 <Craig ugb> Sitting at bh
12:23:07 <Cooper> on the bench closest to Bee
12:23:19 <Craig ugb> Yeah
12:23:24 <Cooper> sitting closest to Bee?
12:23:30 <Craig ugb> On my phone
12:23:44 <Craig ugb> Green shirt
12:23:48 <Cooper> When are you planning to go to SB
12:23:55 <Cooper> Wave again!
12:24:06 <Katie> wait until cam is back up, though. ;)
12:24:12 <Craig ugb> Probably tomorrow evening
12:24:14 <ynpvisitor999®> waving won't be useful now :P
12:24:29 <Katie> but I think that's him to the left of the stroller at the end of the bench
12:24:44 <ynpvisitor86> Have fun
12:24:53 <Craig ugb> Doing chat only, reception is weak
12:25:14 <Cooper> so you are sitting on the Bench, and you are the closest to Bee
12:25:43 <Craig ugb> Might ride my bike to lone star today
12:25:53 <Cooper> is there any water in BHI?
12:26:09 <Craig ugb> Yes, north west of the cone
12:26:39 <Cooper> When are you planing to head to Bee
12:26:57 <Cooper> to SB. Sorry
12:27:52 <Craig ugb> Probably tomorrow evening
12:28:04 <Cooper> Bubblers
12:28:11 <Craig ugb> S bubb
12:28:26 <ynpvisitor86> Looking for a mailbox?
12:31:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:31:52 <Cooper> Daisy
12:35:32 <Cooper> LC
12:35:34 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
12:38:38 <Cooper> Craig, are you still here?
12:38:50 <Cooper> Aurum looks ready
12:39:56 <Cooper> WOW, Big BSB
12:40:32 <Dave from B™> Just took my old clunker to the auto auction which is on Wednesday. Hope it sells
12:41:08 <Cooper> Bee Splash
12:44:22 <Cooper> Aurum
12:44:27 <Cooper> Wait
12:44:34 <Cooper> that is a person wearing a white shirt/coat
12:44:38 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, white shirt
12:44:38 <Cooper> oops
12:44:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum would take off like a rocket
12:45:02 <ynpvisitor999®> and generate more steam
12:45:07 <Katie> so many disregard ny prohibition on white clothes in the UGB...
12:45:19 <Cooper> Well it looked like water for a second
12:50:29 <Cooper> BSB
12:51:20 <Craig ugb> I am at the lion bench
12:51:43 <Cooper> Nice
12:52:30 <Cooper> I wonder if Lioness, or Big Cub will put out a small bucket of water
12:54:13 <ynpvisitor86> How did Depression look Craig?
12:56:13 <Dave from B™> Craig, you couldn't stay away? When does your Pile of Dirt Prison sentence start?
12:56:16 <Katie> I'm going to go heat up some lunch. Speaker volume is on high, so ding me ding me if I need to hurry back to move cam.
12:56:45 <Cooper> Bye Katie
12:57:46 <Cooper> Craig, I hope you get SB this time, you deserve to get it
12:58:15 <Katie> Oh, I'm not going anywhere, just stepped away from computer for a moment
12:58:31 <Cooper> oh
12:58:50 <ynpvisitor86> Camop TV dinner
12:58:58 <Cooper> Craig, do you think you are going to get wet when Lion goes
12:59:05 <Cooper> BSB
12:59:27 <Dave from B™> Craig, I heard Baker's Hole Cg has a plague on your campsite since you have been there so much this year!
12:59:28 <Cooper> Bee is getting quite annoying, come on
12:59:41 <Dave from B™> haha...not the plague!:D
13:00:13 <Craig ugb> LMAO at plague
13:00:18 <ynpvisitor31> lol
13:00:28 <ynpvisitor86> Is Becca trying for the next SB Dave?
13:00:30 <Katie> Well, now we need it to wait until after OF - again
13:00:59 <Dave from B™> Not sure, 86. We are going camping on Friday so probably not this go around for Becca
13:01:54 <ynpvisitor86> So Craig has a good chance this time if he survives the plague.
13:02:07 <Craig ugb> Indy
13:02:15 <Katie> Then he might get a plaque
13:02:17 <Cooper> NO
13:02:22 <ynpvisitor999®> now if only the cam were to be up...
13:02:24 <Katie> GRRRR
13:02:27 <Cooper> We have to miss Bee for OF
13:02:30 <ynpvisitor999®> there we go
13:02:42 <Cooper> Unless, maybe you "walk away" or frogot about OF
13:03:41 <Dave from B™> What happened to Norris seismo?
13:04:04 <ynpvisitor999®> it went offline
13:04:07 <Cooper> Katie, on mutany against the prime directive is no big deal
13:04:25 <Casey> Indy
13:04:36 <Casey> Oops
13:04:41 <Casey> I guess everyone has already seen that
13:05:10 <ynpvisitor999®> fishynp said they will be repairing it this week, not sure on the day
13:05:20 <Cooper> up
13:07:09 <Katie> I'm not in active mutiny - but there isn't even any real steam activity at OF yet
13:07:26 <ynpvisitor999®> from the bright side, camop can use these outages as excuse for not being on OF during the window :)
13:07:27 <Cooper> good
13:08:10 <Katie> The connection, on the other hand...
13:10:48 <ynpvisitor35> not following rules is why they do not let 13 year olds operate the cam :)
13:11:25 <Cooper> well, they said that when a spot opens at some point I get to operate it!
13:11:50 <Kat> Hey all!
13:11:51 <ynpvisitor35> :)
13:12:04 <Cooper> Hi Kat
13:12:13 <Kat> :)
13:14:25 <Cooper> The cam has to die now
13:16:13 <ynpvisitor999®> well... I really hope this outage is the result of maintenance rather than the cam not being able to connect in its entirety
13:16:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Beehive ie
13:16:33 <Cooper> YAY it is up
13:16:35 <Cooper> Bee
13:17:03 <ynpvisitor999®> and gone
13:17:49 <Kat> Static down too?
13:17:58 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems that way
13:18:02 <Katie> Seems so
13:19:07 <Jake> Google doc with webcam hourly & daily uptime data: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v-ZaP92pjhS6xThXnL85M6TtVJfqGpJzp1F2XpZB9y0/edit?usp=sharing
13:19:27 <Jake> if you thought yesterday was bad, it was. 64% uptime for the calendar day
13:21:08 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Jake
13:21:14 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting chart
13:24:32 <ynpvisitor35> Is the value the number of minutes up for the hour?
13:25:51 <Jake> not quite. 60 is 60 minutes up. 0 is 30 minutes up. -60 is 0 min up
13:29:36 <ynpvisitor35> is that actual minutes up or number of good pings, I think eric pings once a minute
13:29:52 <Jake> now it is number of minutes. I just changed it
13:33:58 <ynpvisitor999®> sad that there is no single day in there which has 60 in every timeslot
13:35:11 <Jake> I added another chart. recent days haven't had any more than 5 (of 24) hours of full uptime
13:36:48 <Cooper> I can not stand this anymore
13:37:26 <Jake> found an error in the counting. have to count "59" minutes as a full hour because of the way the counting is done, so there were days of 24 hours w/o downtime back in May
13:37:31 <ynpvisitor12> That chart and my recording time is pretty close, 2100 last night was miserable
13:37:38 <Cooper> I wonder if I should email spam NPS about this
13:37:48 <Katie> the last hour has been miserable, too
13:38:25 <Cooper> if we all spam them maybe they will pay attention
13:40:16 <ynpvisitor12> They look at Ip address to value unique visitors so they would recognize your spam right away
13:41:09 <Cooper> I have to play solitaire to keep myself entertained , usually I just have to watch the cam to keep myself entertained
13:46:33 <ynpvisitor45> Can Great Fountain be seen from the cam?
13:46:55 <ynpvisitor45> Sorry if that is a stupid question!
13:46:57 <Katie> No, Great Fountain can't be seem from this cam
13:47:03 <Jake> you have to squint really *really* hard
13:47:15 <ynpvisitor45> I didn't think so looking at the map.
13:47:24 <Katie> No apology necessary. :)
13:47:26 <Jake> it is 8 miles away so no
13:47:47 <Jake> if there were no mountains or trees, probably could see it
13:47:51 <Dave from B™> Only people who can see thru hills can see it....that leaves me out
13:49:51 <ynpvisitor45> 45 goes back to lurking. Thanks to all. I used to lurk more consistently and knew these things. It is slowly coming back to me thanks to all of you.
13:51:13 <Dave from B™> no problem 45. Glad to have you back.
13:51:36 <Jake> there's Grotto Fountain which can be seen by steam cloud (not water)
13:52:17 <Jake> not confusing at all Great Fountain, Grotto Fountain, Fountain, South Grotto Fountain
13:52:31 <ynpvisitor45> Is an eruption only called when you see water? I think that was the it was a few years ago.
13:52:59 <ynpvisitor45> Can we take up a collection for cam repairs?
13:53:14 <ynpvisitor45> We need a go fund me.
13:53:16 <Jake> an eruption is when the feature is ejecting water, the time of "calling" the eruption as having started varies by geyser
13:53:34 <ynpvisitor86> They would spend it on coffee for the office.
13:54:18 <Jake> some geysers pass a "point of no return" with overflow prior to actually ejecting water
13:54:27 <ynpvisitor86> Riverside has always been called by steam. Grand was at times before the new view.
13:54:47 <Katie> Giant, too
13:54:55 <Jake> maybe we should send them coffee
13:55:57 <Cooper> Send them coffee everyday, and once they start to love it go on sending them coffee strike, and they will fix the cam
13:55:57 <ynpvisitor86> Waste of coffee.
13:56:52 <ynpvisitor86> If I were Cannon USA, I would demand they take my name off the NPS cam page.
13:56:56 <Jake> research shows people do respond more strongly to a negative stimulus (i.e. taking something away)
13:57:08 <Cooper> If anyone on here becomes the US president, issue an executive order and fix it
13:57:27 <Cooper> Jake, exactly, but in order to take something away they have to get something to start with
13:59:06 <ynpvisitor86> Lets just assume they have no idea how to fix it, and no money to hire a outside firm to fix it. So maybe go after yellowstone for never.
13:59:41 <Cooper> Haha, was that intentional 86
13:59:49 <Cooper> the "Yellowstone for Never"
14:00:16 <ynpvisitor86> pump
14:01:38 <Cooper> So maybe do the coffee thing for Yellowstone Forever
14:02:12 <ynpvisitor86> Just go back to the prime directive coment that was posted earlier. They considder this as part of their marketing of OF. Someone needs to be held accountable for poor marketing.
14:02:43 <ynpvisitor86> But the park and boardwalk are full, so maybe they do not care about the marketing either.
14:03:33 <ynpvisitor86> If so, it is time to toss the prime directive.
14:04:08 <ynpvisitor86> Off to other things. More lions for you.
14:04:12 <Jake> I'm still unclear on who is responsible for the maintenance of the cam.
14:04:30 <Dave from B™> NPS could take away the webcam; never to replace it.
14:04:55 <Cooper> Well maybe you can go on OF strike, and not put the cam on OF, and say "make the cam stay up, and we will put the cam on OF"
14:05:26 <Cooper> If that were the case, someone in the NPS would get a black eye
14:06:15 <Jake> that strategy is easily defeated, but keep thinking!
14:07:02 <Katie> ...as would the camops. We signed an agreement when we signed on. Honor and trust are involved.
14:08:34 <Katie> The better approach could be "what can we do to assist you in solving this problem?"
14:08:48 <Cooper> well, you could go to YNP and beg
14:09:49 <Cooper> Katie, I like that idea
14:13:54 <ynpvisitor45> If there is a non-profit involved they would have to spend the money for the designated purpose or risk losing their non-profit status.
14:16:33 <ynpvisitor45> Beg the gov and they'll just say they are working on it and not work on it.
14:16:46 <ynpvisitor45> Who owns the cam?
14:16:48 <Cooper> I wonder if someone could get them on miss-informing the public(fraud) for this, "We sometimes experience problems with the webcams. Know that when a webcam goes offline, experiences a disruption in service or image quality, we are working to fix the problem." and then they would be forced to fix it. I hate to be the mean pearson, but they could use tgat
14:16:54 <Cooper> that* not tgat
14:17:41 <ynpvisitor45> Yes, Cooper, I read that today and laughed.
14:18:29 <Cooper> Maybe someone should try that
14:18:47 <ynpvisitor999®> well, they could cover themselves with changing "sometimes" to "frequently" and removing the latter statement about that they are working on fixing it
14:19:01 <Eliseium> Beehive happened 12 minutes after my meeting started :(
14:19:20 <ynpvisitor999®> well, you wouldn't be able to see anything of it, so you didn't miss anything
14:19:21 <Jake> and you saw almost as much of it as I did here!
14:19:34 <Eliseium> Oh that's good :thumbsdown:
14:20:30 <Jake> I saw some tweet: "everyone's *****ing about the hottest summer in the last 125 years and I'm here enjoying the coolest summer in the next 125 years. the glass is half-full!"
14:20:46 <Cooper> or ask, "I saw(insert my quote above), and I would like to know and receive a detailed list of outages, who worked to resolve them, and how they resolved it" after I have taken a screen shot of the quote, and then maybe they will be forced to fix it, (Backing them into a corner"
14:21:23 <Katie> It's been unseasonably cool here (Western Montana) while most of the rest of the country melts.
14:23:53 <Dave from B™> Same here, Katie but thing change tomorrow...nearing triple digits for the rest of the week
14:23:58 <Cooper> time to take my mom for a walk, be back in a few minutes
14:24:35 <Katie> Warming up here, too. I closed the blinds before I left home for the day today. Until today, I haven't really bothered with energy saving measures.
14:25:33 <ynpvisitor4> Is Craig C back in the park?
14:25:43 <ynpvisitor12> yes
14:25:45 <ynpvisitor4> Still seeking SB?
14:25:51 <Katie> yup - he was between Lion and Bee earlier today
14:26:01 <ynpvisitor4> I hope he finally gets one
14:26:08 <Dave from B™> Yep.....Mr SB has returned
14:26:36 <ynpvisitor4> Pretty soon he’ll have your rep Dave
14:26:43 <Jake> Mr SunBurn'd?
14:26:58 <ynpvisitor4> Hours put in vs not seeing SB
14:27:16 <Jake> has he not seen one?
14:27:25 <ynpvisitor4> He has not
14:27:49 <Katie> Is there a merit badge for that? time invested without having the right timing?
14:27:51 <ynpvisitor4> Picked the wrong day to stay the night last time
14:27:53 <Dave from B™> I have 1 eruption for 100 hours of sitting
14:28:12 <Dave from B™> But, there are others who have had much longer sentences
14:28:16 <ynpvisitor4> I heard someone was working on 300
14:29:01 <ynpvisitor46> They need to move the bleachers from Echinus and put backs on them and furnish blankies and pillows.
14:29:17 <Cooper> back from my walk
14:29:41 <Cooper> I would not get that badge, I have 1 SB for 15 Minutes of sitting
14:30:51 <ynpvisitor999®> YNM is back up
14:31:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto ie
14:33:32 <Dave from B™> 4, that would be a park employy from Canyon.
14:34:02 <ynpvisitor12> Katie the 1300 hour must have been fun, I show 20 camera failures that hour
14:34:46 <Katie> Yeah, that was a blast. And we missed both Bee and OF during that period.
14:37:06 <ynpvisitor45> Riverside and Daisy due. Prime directive in effect.
14:38:44 <ynpvisitor12> With the old cam we would catch all three without a move If left on wide
14:39:02 <Lori S> Hello again. Well that explains the no txt for Bee. (webcam down) :(
14:39:27 <Katie> Yes, Lori S, we spared everyone the frustration of not being able to see it on cam. :)
14:39:28 <Jake> top google result for "prime directive": http://prescientscifi.azurewebsites.net/wp-content/uploads/Star-Trek-Prime-Directive.jpg
14:39:38 <ynpvisitor46> We could use both cams
14:39:48 <Lori S> ynpvisitor46, :thumbsup:
14:40:07 <ynpvisitor45> OMG! They're gonna get wet.
14:40:19 <Katie> And yes, 12, we could see just about everything from the old cam all at once, but I do like this perspective (high). If we could have high and solid where the other was... alas.
14:40:44 <Katie> I like seeing the river and colors as we do from this view.
14:41:04 <Lori S> Katie, Thanks for that.
14:41:21 <ynpvisitor999®> the current view is, in my opinion, good - it's the cam outages which ruin it
14:41:28 <Lori S> I mean for not txting
14:41:37 <Katie> :)
14:41:50 <ynpvisitor46> WebCam 12 step program meets every Thursday in the Employee Rec Hall
14:41:50 <Lori S> Graham, the cam goes out? ;)
14:41:57 <Katie> I had the text page up and ready, but when the cam failed, I didn't hit the enter button
14:41:58 <Lori S> Sorry, Jarno
14:42:24 <ynpvisitor45> That's why I'm a bit confused. I thought the view is different from when I lurked a few years ago.
14:42:36 <Katie> It was a dual with OF, too, so had I been able to operate the cam, the prime directive would have compelled me to move it to OF
14:42:58 <Katie> yes, 45, the view changed dramatically in April
14:43:13 <Lori S> Oooo, YNM is back up :)
14:43:52 <ynpvisitor45> Thanks, Katie, I thought I was just getting old and senile!!!
14:48:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1445
14:49:34 <Katie> Or course it did...
14:50:36 <Dave from B™> WE can catch the end after OF:)
14:51:27 <ynpvisitor45> So everyone needs to send an email to Canon U.S.A., Inc. asking them if all their cameras work like the Old Faithful cam. I make a generous donation to Yellwostone Foever every year. I'm going to email them, too!!
14:52:06 <ynpvisitor45> Sorry for the typos. You know what I mean.
14:52:27 <Lori S> ynpvisitor45, good idea
14:53:00 <Katie> It's not the camera, it's the communication link to the router, which is a microwave wireless radio link between the cam on Old Faithful Inn to a router connected to a T1 at the ranger station. But, Canon might not want that perception, so go for it.
14:53:06 <Lori S> Do we suppose it is at all related to the YF "issues" afoot?
14:53:09 <ynpvisitor46> 45, I suspect if Canon got on this it would be resolved within a matter of hours.
14:53:56 <Cooper> back from my 1 mile run
14:54:04 <Dave from B™> I don't feel this has anything to do with YF issues
14:54:18 <Lori S> OF up, OF down, OF up... :)
14:54:35 <Lori S> Dave from B™, OK
14:54:45 <Lori S> Hi Cooper
14:54:51 <Katie> I don't think so, either. YF is in the red and in some turmoil, but has made more than its usual financial contribution to programs in the park.
14:55:26 <Lori S> And all the microwave ovens in the Inn have been checked for coorelation to the outage times?
14:55:42 <Dave from B™> Triple checked:)
14:55:49 <Cooper> hey Lori
14:56:04 <Lori S> How about the espresso machine? :)
14:56:32 <Katie> and if microwave ovens were that much of an issue, no one would have working wi-fi and none of the hundreds of customers the company I work for (a wireless ISP) would have connectivity. :) those are everywhere
14:57:01 <ynpvisitor46> We need a fiber optic cable to the UGB!
14:57:04 <ynpvisitor45> Yes, Katie, I don't think it is Cannon's fault, but they might be an ally in getting it fixed because, as you say, they don't want the perception.
14:57:06 <Lori S> **eyes roll as Lori asks about things that have been tried and tried again**
14:57:22 <Katie> ha ha, same with espresso machines. Ironically, my boss owns two business: Centric Internet and Break Espresso.
14:57:39 <Lori S> hehe
14:58:29 <Lori S> There is always the press. Anyone call KBZK?
14:58:37 <ynpvisitor12> You also have to think nighttime, there are as many outages in the night as there are in the day
15:00:08 <ynpvisitor45> "Eyes on Yellowstone is made possible by generous annual grants from Canon U.S.A., Inc. to Yellowstone Forever. Canon is the single largest funder of wildlife conservation and research in Yellowstone National Park, providing financial and technical support for the following programs:"
15:00:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside ie
15:00:36 <ynpvisitor45> Eyes on Yellowstone is made possible by generous annual grants from Canon U.S.A., Inc. to Yellowstone Forever. Canon is the single largest funder of wildlife conservation and research in Yellowstone National Park, providing financial and technical support for the following programs:

15:01:48 <ynpvisitor45> Sorry for the repeat posts. Had some issues here.
15:02:25 <ynpvisitor45> Who is KBZK?
15:02:52 <Lori S> The local TV news. newstips@kbzk.com
15:02:59 <Dave from B™> Bozeman TV station
15:03:06 <Cooper> wait, isnt that puff where F & M are
15:03:30 <Cooper> wait, maybe it is just wind
15:03:43 <ynpvisitor12> I think it is some type of interference to the radio but, I would make sure it is not the camera or power supplyfirst by putting any test IP camera and power supply in place of the present cam, ps, housing, it does not have to have controls just a viseo source.
15:03:53 <ynpvisitor45> Ok. Thanks.
15:04:58 <ynpvisitor45> Cannon, who is advertised as providing technical support, should surely be able to advise and/or fund.
15:05:01 <ynpvisitor12> It would be a shame to make changes and find the problem still existed
15:06:25 <ynpvisitor12> NPS has many IP cameras, they could even use the one from the VEC to test with
15:08:30 <ynpvisitor12> The best is, Stop pointing fingers and run a few simple tests by substitution
15:08:34 <ynpvisitor45> I'm not saying it is a problem with a Cannon Camera. It most certainly is not. I'm saying they would have a vested interst in solving the problem given the 'technical support' statement.
15:09:28 <ynpvisitor45> I understand, 12, but no one seems to be doing it!!!
15:10:16 <ynpvisitor12> I do not think it is the camera, but I have seen power supplys cause many problems
15:11:42 <ynpvisitor12> To prove the radio link is the fault you have to substitute vinput device
15:12:05 <ynpvisitor45> I don't think so either, 12. But Cannon would be a good ally to enlist since they provide 'technical support' and it is implied that their cameras are in service.
15:12:30 <Cooper> Rain
15:13:01 <Dave from B™> Time to take off and enjoy one of the few nice summer days this year without rain. Have a great evening everyone!
15:13:13 <Lori S> Bye Dave!
15:13:13 <Cooper> Bye Dave
15:13:42 <Lori S> KBZK has been sent an email...
15:16:09 <Katie> 12 - we had a faulty power supply cause jabber, and hence packet loss, across our network just last week. Took a couple hours to isolate the cause - and then a couple minutes to resolve it.
15:16:35 <Cooper> they need to hire you Katie
15:16:40 <ynpvisitor12> MY point exactly
15:17:09 <Lori S> Cooper, :thumbsup: I third that
15:17:36 <ynpvisitor45> Yellowstone Forever as also been sent an email.
15:19:38 <Katie> My boss is the field tech. I'm the inside tech. They need my boss.
15:21:07 <ynpvisitor12> Yellowstone forever had a streaming camera at the north entrance that anyone could sign in to and control it was there for many years it went bad when the new construction was going on and they decided not to spend the money to replace it it does not exist anymore and not very many people remember it I hope the same thing does not happen with this camera
15:21:31 <Katie> that issue is one that was observable on our monitoring system (random alarms), then we settled in to manual troubleshooting. Only 1 out of hundreds of customers even noticed a slow down before we had it fixed. We strive to be proactive. That's a lot of what I do - I'm monitoring, troubleshooting, doing tech support and maintaining the servers and dispatching him for actual hands-on
15:23:56 <Lori S> Canon U.S.A. has received a "Contact Us" form email.
15:24:07 <ynpvisitor12> I have over 30 years experience troubleshooting and repairing problems like this and one thing that I have learned is that you do not fixate on one apple in the bag
15:25:54 <Katie> Exactly, 12 - last week we considered an ARP issue (ruled out because packet loss was on both private and public IP's), a switch producing jabber, a router producing jabber, and it turned out to be a radio with a bad power supply doing it. And sometimes, often, there is more than one issue.
15:26:27 <Lori S> This is an automated response, please do not reply.   Dear Canon Customer,   Thank you for your email. Your message has been received. We will reply to your inquiry in 8-12 hours. We look forward to helping you "See Impossible."  Best regards, Canon Customer Care 1-800-652-2666
15:26:31 <ynpvisitor12> agree
15:31:56 <Cooper> hey Graham
15:31:59 <GO MORNING (40)> bulger at some point
15:32:09 <GO MORNING (40)> hello ... have you fixed the cam yet?
15:32:19 <Lori S> Hi Graham. No.
15:32:30 <Lori S> Sent some emails, though.
15:32:39 <GO MORNING (40)> i see Craig got pulled back again
15:32:53 <Lori S> pulled back?
15:32:53 <Cooper> yup
15:33:27 <Lori S> Oh, to the park
15:34:13 <GO MORNING (40)> yep Sb pulled him back again
15:34:26 <GO MORNING (40)> hope he gets it tomorrow
15:34:52 <GO MORNING (40)> no report today .. not sure what that means
15:35:22 <GO MORNING (40)> norris seismo seems to have a narrower trace now its back online
15:36:04 <ynpvisitor999®> probably due to the red spikes at the beginning of the trace
15:37:36 <Lori S> GO MORNING (40), Why do you think SB will play tomorrow?
15:43:31 <Lori S> Is Craig here by himself and how long is he staying?
15:44:05 <Cooper> I don't know, sorry
15:44:20 <Cooper> but man, if anyone deserves an SB it is him
15:45:05 <Lori S> Cooper, I so agree!
15:49:36 <ynpvisitor12> I have been watching the YNP stream and see why there are not many complaints, I have seen a frozen screen with Grotto erupting and four little black dots (barely seen) spinning in the trees, I have not seen any downs and ups as we have seen the past few minutes, therefore the public is not aware
15:50:23 <ynpvisitor12> even now it changed to another down basin picture
15:52:15 <ynpvisitor12> I think Pixelcaster has a builtin buffer that sees no good frames so it freezes until it gets good frames again
15:52:54 <GO MORNING (40)> so Eric is to blame forour depression because he put all the up downs in the log?
15:53:01 <GO MORNING (40)> he is a busy guy typing them all
15:54:11 <ynpvisitor12> Yes and we are not seeing the actual pixelcaster stream but are seeing one before their buffer
15:54:12 <Cooper> he needs to program a system that auto records them, and does all of the analyzing for him
15:54:42 <Katie> I'm sure he has written a script for that. :)
15:55:38 <ynpvisitor12> I record the main stream before it goes to pixelcaster and that is what Eric is showing us
15:56:39 <Cooper> maybe they will put it back where it was
15:57:06 <GO MORNING (40)> i see we are missing a Daisy on GT
15:57:39 <ynpvisitor12> pixelcaster gets that same stream but bufferes it somehow
15:58:07 <ynpvisitor12> Daisy most likely erupted during OF
15:58:21 <GO MORNING (40)> nobody posted in park either
15:58:42 <ynpvisitor12> nope
16:00:03 <ynpvisitor12> It was reported to NPS though
16:00:20 <ynpvisitor12> they have a prediction
16:03:50 <GO MORNING (40)> time to work i guess
16:04:20 <GO MORNING (40)> no Turban reports ... what is Craig up to?
16:04:37 <Katie> We *think* he went to SB
16:05:27 <Lori S> May have gone to GF ?
16:05:47 <Cooper> or Ftn are
16:05:51 <Cooper> area***
16:06:56 <ynpvisitor73> cell service might be down
16:07:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle in window
16:08:33 <ynpvisitor76> I think the NPS sometimes predicts Daisy on a double interval if one eruption gets missed.
16:11:39 <ynpvisitor12> I don't lto input something I haven't seen
16:12:07 <ynpvisitor12> not good for the database IMHO
16:12:49 <GO MORNING (40)> there are probably more eruptions on GT that were entered by someone that didnt see them .. thena the reverse
16:13:50 <ynpvisitor12> Yes you are right, just not my way of doing things
16:13:53 <GO MORNING (40)> also thats what the A is for
16:14:43 <GO MORNING (40)> its all part of building a database, not a problem really
16:14:55 <ynpvisitor12> A is good but I have seen otherwise
16:16:20 <GO MORNING (40)> vr's are good to capture too
16:16:41 <Cooper> Grotto note on GT
16:17:56 <GO MORNING (40)> when Allan started his database he was interested to see everything logged including multiple entries for analysis of what people were doing too I think
16:20:04 <GO MORNING (40)> I dont enter as many times now as others enter them before me
16:20:46 <Cooper> Ha, take that NPS
16:20:57 <Cooper> Wait, Jarno, are you still here
16:21:27 <ynpvisitor999®> possibly, Cooper
16:22:20 <ynpvisitor12> I enter all I see at night, but for the most part let others do the day
16:22:32 <Cooper> you are studying IT correct?
16:22:47 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
16:23:05 <Cooper> what do you think is going on with our friend the cam?
16:25:45 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I'm studying the software part of IT, so I can only speculate
16:26:07 <Cooper> then what do you speculate?
16:26:59 <ynpvisitor999®> but it wouldn't surprise me if the cam's signal is interfered by another signal or due to wind blowing the antenna into different directions, cause outages
16:27:26 <Cooper> interesting
16:27:27 <ynpvisitor999®> software IT isn't really the hardware IT
16:27:35 <Lori S> What could interfere with the signal?
16:27:51 <ynpvisitor12> Graham are there any deaths in Wednesdays opera?
16:27:59 <Lori S> Could a physical object block it?
16:28:08 <ynpvisitor999®> radios being used in the area between the sender and receiver
16:28:16 <GO MORNING (40)> um .. unfortunately no...but there are fireworks
16:28:42 <Lori S> Could those littlw two way radios do it? The ones people use to talk between vehicles while traveling?
16:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> depends, Lori. If it's a by radiowaves non-penetrable surface, like some kind of metal, it can block the signal
16:29:36 <GO MORNING (40)> Ariadne auf Naxos.....commedy about an opera performance and commedy troup scheduled to perform .. but they run out of time so have to do both at the same time
16:29:53 <GO MORNING (40)> has to finish before the foreworks start
16:30:58 <GO MORNING (40)> pretty much like whatching our political circus these days
16:33:22 <Lori S> So, like a tour bus parked in the back lot?
16:33:57 <Lori S> Or an RV
16:35:43 <Katie> Just had a delivery from a new FedEx driver for our route. He says "Hey, long time!" Huh? Then he told me his name and where I knew him from - like 15 years ago. He used to work in purchasing for St. Patrick Hospital - and I worked in sales, they were a huge customer for us back in the day when we had sister company doing computer/network/hardware sales.
16:36:08 <Katie> totally would NEVER have recognized him in a FedEx uniform. He could tell by my "huh?!" expression. ha ha
16:36:25 <Lori S> Katie, small world. :)
16:36:36 <GO MORNING (40)> must mean you have not aged in 15 years :)
16:37:10 <Lori S> I once gave a tour in Alaska and this couple came up to me saying they took my tour in Yellowstone the prior year. They said they recognized my laugh.
16:37:41 <Lori S> Katie, what Graham said. :)
16:38:42 <Katie> I wish! And as I think on it more, it was more like 20 years ago! But he did remember my name and the last package he delivered here, when I wasn't here, was addressed to me.
16:39:50 <ynpvisitor12> Lori ONE reciever transmitter with integrated antenna is on the roof of the inn, the other antenna is on a tripod mount on the roof of the ranger station, pretty much line of sight
16:39:52 <Katie> that's great, Lori
16:39:54 <Katie> Castle
16:40:46 <Lori S> BTW Katie, the robin re-nested in a tree about 20 feet from the nest we knocked down (no eggs). It has comntinued to fly into our office wondow and I watch it take worms up to its nest.
16:41:56 <Lori S> ynpvisitor12, so a bus wouldn't be tall enough, presumabaly
16:42:03 <ynpvisitor12> although I do not like the way the cable at the ranger station just v"dangles"
16:42:25 <Lori S> *presumably
16:42:33 <ynpvisitor12> No no buss blockage
16:42:40 <Lori S> hehe
16:42:55 <ynpvisitor12> bus*
16:43:05 <Lori S> Aliens landing in the back lot at 2 am?
16:43:30 <Lori S> I will stop wildly guessing now. ;)
16:44:09 <Lori S> Can we get a Daisy to go woth that Castle?
16:44:37 <Cooper> can we go wide, so we get Grand, Castle, and Daisy in the same veiw?
16:46:26 <Lori S> Cooper, The web cam says no.
16:46:41 <Cooper> Hey Kevin
16:47:01 <Lori S> Hi Kevin
16:47:12 <Cooper> How is your Dad?
16:48:47 <Kevin Driveway> Looked a bit better today. He was more interested in eating than directing the construction crew that wasn’t there.
16:49:15 <Cooper> Well, eating is good
16:50:18 <Lori S> Kevin Driveway, so he has gotten used to the food?
16:51:33 <Kevin Driveway> Not really but I guess if you are hungry enough you will eat anything.
16:51:57 <Lori S> Kevin Driveway, true
16:52:26 <Lori S> Cooper, I forgot to ask how your Mom is
16:52:37 <Kevin Driveway> I learned that with C Rations.
16:53:21 <Cooper> she is doing a lot better every day
16:53:45 <Lori S> Bob said in boot camp (way back when) he got used to eating C Rations with sand in them.
16:54:14 <Lori S> Cooper, is her memory coming back?
16:54:32 <Cooper> Slowley, but yes
16:54:51 <Lori S> Cooper, :thumbsup:
16:54:58 <Cooper> Grand
16:55:00 <Cooper> .
16:55:01 <Cooper> .
16:55:01 <Kevin Driveway> That is great Cooper. I can relate to the sand Lori
16:55:03 <Cooper> .
16:55:03 <Cooper> .
16:55:11 <Lori S> Kevin Driveway, USMC?
16:55:37 <Lori S> All we need now is Daisy
16:55:39 <Kevin Driveway> US Army.
16:55:50 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
16:56:49 <Lori S> Daisy and a wroking cam...
