06:44:20 <ynpvisitor10> No Grand yet? Will it go 6 hours?
06:50:44 <ynpvisitor101> 7 of 30 SB intervals this year were longer than the current one .... only one was in the 8 day range so it won't change much today
06:51:42 <ynpvisitor101> ~9 days before we hit the longest 17d+ in April
06:52:20 <ynpvisitor22> GRAND
06:52:27 <ynpvisitor22> NOT
06:53:59 <ynpvisitor10> SB is not doing anything anytime soon. Last year’s disturbance it was 20 days before it came back
06:55:05 <ynpvisitor101> yep ...... question is if it can come back in 17 ... no clue about that. intervals in disturbances have been 14 to 20 days
06:55:11 <ynpvisitor10> The 17 days in April was from a tiny disturbance. This one seems major.
06:55:12 <ynpvisitor101> so far :
06:55:15 <ynpvisitor101> :)
06:56:07 <ynpvisitor10> The 20 day interval was followed by more long intervals
06:56:34 <ynpvisitor101> they were 14 to 17, yes. we have little data to project on
06:57:09 <ynpvisitor101> even this years one had intervals of 14 and 17 days ....so in the same ball park
06:57:16 <ynpvisitor10> Could finally be done too
06:57:18 <ynpvisitor101> just last year had twice as many
06:57:28 <ynpvisitor101> i hope not
06:59:46 <ynpvisitor10> 20, 14, 14, 17 last big D before going back to 5s
07:01:01 <ynpvisitor10> Labor Day gazers will have to find other geysers to wait on
07:05:19 <ynpvisitor83> grand ie
07:08:20 <ynpvisitor101> could still erupt sometime ... 34 days would be LD
07:08:55 <ynpvisitor101> lets see if we get one more eruption
07:09:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand was waiting for OF
07:10:00 <ynpvisitor101> Maybe Morning will pick up too .. its is still stumbling along with a couple of eruptions every week or two
07:10:16 <ynpvisitor101> it needs to figur out how to have solo's again
07:13:42 <ynpvisitor53> Doesn't look like we have a body at Grand. Good the cam came up long enough to catch it.
07:14:11 <Dave from B™> Fountain Group will most likely be the LD focus this year
07:14:53 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:15:26 <Dave from B™> Hi CraigC
07:16:02 <Kent> Nice morning in the park. Wish aye was there :(
07:16:47 <Kent> Morning names, #s
07:16:56 <Kent> Dome 0716 static
07:17:15 <CraigC> hey Kent
07:17:46 <Kent> Joe got Dome at 0715
07:17:48 <ynpvisitor22> There was someone at Grand
07:17:59 <Kent> Excellent
07:18:14 <Kent> Fluff right on the cusp
07:18:28 <Kent> 17 or 18
07:35:12 <Cooper> Ug, I am stuck with having to get up early for a school thing, 1 week before school even starts
07:38:15 <ynpvisitor13> Good to see you Cooper. So yesterday's situation was resolved OK?
07:38:51 <Cooper> Thanks 13, but what happened yesterday?
07:39:27 <ynpvisitor22> Cam failed 50 times in the past two hours
07:39:34 <ynpvisitor13> Strange person outside your house?
07:39:46 <Cooper> oh I thought you meant on here
07:39:53 <Cooper> Yes, it was resolved
07:39:58 <Call Me Al> Good
07:40:00 <Cooper> Police did well
07:40:14 <Cooper> 3 Minutes before they had him at gun point
07:40:37 <Call Me Al> Given recent events, glad to hear that
07:40:47 <Cooper> Thanks
07:41:46 <Cooper> can someone order a lightning strike at SB, maybe it could fibrillate(shock) SB back to life and out of this ZAP
07:45:51 <Cooper> Lion looks happy
07:46:16 <CraigC> aurum
07:46:22 <Cooper> .
07:46:22 <Cooper> .
07:46:23 <Cooper> .
07:46:23 <Cooper> .
07:46:35 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
07:46:55 <Call Me Al> Got it
07:47:54 <ynpvisitor22> Too bad could not get control
07:48:07 <Call Me Al> It's OK, variety
07:49:29 <CraigC> Call Me Al, your name in reference to Paul Simon song?
07:50:33 <Call Me Al> Yes, but it's also the symbol for element 13
07:51:51 <ynpvisitor22> I have been called away, controls are released, for any cam-op to take the cam, shift open until 1000 thanks
07:51:58 <ynpvisitor22> >
07:52:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I can take it
07:52:41 <ynpvisitor22> thank you
07:52:45 <CraigC> good, I was going to, but I need to do dishes and stuff
07:52:57 <CraigC> cya later, Joe
07:53:26 <Cooper> bye Joe
07:55:58 <ynpvisitor...> "but you doesn't have to call me Johnson." Never mind... My mind does wander.
07:56:11 <ynpvisitor...> Dome
07:56:35 <CraigC> dome
07:56:52 <CraigC> when Betty gets here, the song will be complete
07:57:15 <Call Me Al> :thumbsup: hadn't thought of that!@
07:57:35 <Call Me Al> never mind the @
07:58:46 <Dave from B™> haha Kent
08:03:27 <JarnoO fka 999> morning all
08:04:01 <JarnoO fka 999> also, morning alumin(i)um. Feeling lightweight today?
08:05:44 <Call Me Al> Lightweight and ductile too!
08:06:24 <Cooper> Hi and Bye Jarno, bbl
08:07:26 <JarnoO fka 999> I think I've got some positive news today regarding Norris. Constant logger data shows that Whirligig has been increasing its frequency of minors, which it also did after this winter's disturbance passed. Echinus seems to show more spikes than in the past week. This may mean that this disturbance is nearly over
08:16:33 <Call Me Al> I keep wondering if that strange seismograph (that I contended was related to the storm and lightning activity) was actually something hydrothermal.
08:16:57 <JarnoO fka 999> Steamboat 0732 note: SV channel moist with some pooling, shoulder area wet, no runoff. NV wispy jets to 15-20'. Low splashing to just over ET from SV. Light but steady trickly making it past bridge. Through mostly full, 2"(?) of stick exposed
08:18:10 <CraigC> there is a stick coming out of some gravel in a pool at the foot of the bridge where the runoff flows. Gravel is laid down during an eruption
08:18:40 <CraigC> no wait, it is washed away during the eruption , then it builds up from minors
08:21:17 <ynpvisitor101> we blew past the 5.5 year point since the last Giantess :(
08:22:29 <JarnoO fka 999> sad
08:24:35 <CraigC> I wonder if that is Gem Pool steam to the right of Arty steam
08:25:42 <Call Me Al> Plus les choses restent les mêmes, plus elles changent
08:25:57 <Call Me Al> (to coin a phrase)
08:27:34 <JarnoO fka 999> from this view, Gem is to the right of Arty.
08:28:46 <CraigC> isn't that what I said? LOL
08:29:57 <JarnoO fka 999> probably worth noting is that Seismic is located to the left of Arty. In case it ever erupts again
08:30:23 <JarnoO fka 999> might be that plume we see from time to time there
08:32:23 <JarnoO fka 999> Churn steaming
08:40:46 <Call Me Al> Sprinkler, since we are looking in this direction
08:41:08 <Call Me Al> Spider! (not a geyser)
08:42:11 <JarnoO fka 999> we should make a site called 'CreatureTimes'. This way we can also log spiders :)
08:42:42 <Call Me Al> and other wildlife
08:48:44 <Call Me Al> Hey, Old Faithful
08:49:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you need a chainsaw to log spiders?
08:51:07 <Call Me Al> Spiderfest!
08:55:36 <ynpvisitor...> Spiderstock! It is the anniversary.
08:55:47 <JarnoO fka 999> Daisy ie
09:07:29 <JarnoO fka 999> Dome ie
09:07:57 <JarnoO fka 999> South ie
09:13:24 <JarnoO fka 999> AB
09:13:44 <JarnoO fka 999> AL
09:31:41 <JarnoO fka 999> AB
09:33:30 <JarnoO fka 999> AL possibly starting on static frame
09:40:23 <Cooper> YUM, A nice iced coffee in the morning
09:44:17 <Call Me Al> I have a caramel latte creamer with whipped cream.
09:44:37 <Call Me Al> (not a real caramel latte with whipped cream, but close enough)
09:44:53 <Cooper> Yum
09:45:11 <Cooper> Now I need to make some caremal
09:48:35 <ynpvisitor103> caramel Call Me Al?
09:48:56 <Cooper> Dome
09:48:59 <Cooper> ?
09:49:05 <Cooper> maybe
09:49:32 <JarnoO fka 999> yes, Dome 0947 ie/ns
09:51:44 <ynpvisitor21> pump
09:51:59 <ynpvisitor21> I thought
09:56:05 <ynpvisitor4> anemone
09:57:13 <JarnoO fka 999> which one of the two, #4?
09:57:47 <ynpvisitor4> not sure.
09:58:01 <ynpvisitor4> everything is too little
10:03:48 <JarnoO fka 999> South ie
10:08:01 <Betty> morning all, evening Jarno
10:08:53 <JarnoO fka 999> evening Betty
10:09:06 <Cooper> Guten Hi Betty
10:09:27 <Cooper> Jarno's freind's must have control of his computer, as he is away
10:17:00 <ynpvisitor4> I hope they did not order the parts to fix the cam on Kevin's amazon account. They may never see them.
10:18:04 <Betty> hehehe
10:25:37 <ynpvisitor4> This circle x has me dizzy.
10:28:23 <Cooper> wait, it was moving
10:28:34 <Betty> OF
10:49:03 <Casey> Morning
10:50:24 <Cooper> Hello Casey
10:50:42 <Casey> Hi Cooper
10:50:45 <Betty> morning Casey
10:53:14 <Casey> Hi Betty
11:02:51 <Betty> BH splash
11:03:10 <Cooper> That could be a start
11:03:14 <Cooper> Nice sized
11:03:25 <Betty> nope
11:03:26 <Cooper> nope
11:04:43 <Dave from B™> Maybe Eric is on his wat to YNP to help fix the cam:)
11:05:08 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
11:05:17 <Cooper> Morning Dave
11:08:32 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty and Cooper
11:08:47 <Dave from B™> This room is sure boring with inoperable cam
11:08:57 <Betty> yep
11:08:58 <Cooper> that is is
11:09:27 <Cooper> at this point I would pay the NPS's 1 day shipping fee's
11:09:38 <Cooper> make it get here faster
11:09:54 <Cooper> vs. the we ordered the "7" day free shiping.
11:18:35 <JarnoO fka 999> Lion ie presumably ini
11:19:05 <Betty> nice
11:19:42 <Cooper> Jarno's friends hijacked his computer again
11:20:29 <JarnoO fka 999> how so?
11:21:27 <JarnoO fka 999> when I'm marked as 'away' it in reality usually means that I take longer than usual to respond. So I'm not really away, but in another tab or window
11:21:39 <Cooper> oh
11:37:45 <JarnoO fka 999> Dome ie late
11:45:37 <JarnoO fka 999> South ie
11:50:25 <JarnoO fka 999> AB 1150 early
11:54:06 <Dave from B™> I feel sorry for people who are traveling to SB about now to try to catch it when it could be another week or more
11:55:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Is Becca going to get it before she leaves?
11:55:55 <Dave from B™> Nope...we will try to get one if things return to normal in October
11:56:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Bummer
12:01:56 <JarnoO fka 999> Lion likely within half an hour or so
12:02:57 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some strange sport on ESPN2 today. Virtual golf now but school bus figure 8 race and lawnmower races coming up.
12:04:36 <Call Me Al> almost time for Little League World Series
12:10:17 <ynpvisitor101> helo on washburn cam
12:10:23 <ynpvisitor101> big birdie
12:12:09 <JarnoO fka 999> Dome ie late
12:24:52 <JarnoO fka 999> Grand in window, Daisy past window
12:25:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy erupted
12:26:33 <JarnoO fka 999> South around 20m intervals it seems. Don't think Bee will be soon, so I think we can safely pan in such way that both Lion and Grand are in window
12:26:42 <JarnoO fka 999> are in frame*
12:28:24 <JarnoO fka 999> Deep Blue has high water, so that vents around it are now submerged. Happened since 8/6/2019 1335
12:28:44 <JarnoO fka 999> not sure in what way I should read that date
12:31:45 <Casey> I'm assuming August 6, 2019 since Yellowstone is in the USA
12:37:57 <JarnoO fka 999> Bee soon. South interval of 13m
12:38:36 <Betty> would bee nice
12:40:13 <Dave from B™> Kevin, Dodger game is free today on youTube...starts in 30 minutes
12:41:28 <Kevin L™🌵> That is strange
12:43:48 <Dave from B™> MLB does that a few times a year
12:45:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion is going long
12:45:51 <JarnoO fka 999> I'm thinking end of series
12:47:28 <JarnoO fka 999> Dome ie
12:53:34 <JarnoO fka 999> I'm calling Lion end of series. No eruption seen since 1118
12:55:20 <JarnoO fka 999> NPS updated their Grand prediction to 1815
12:55:27 <JarnoO fka 999> so looks like we've missed it
12:55:49 <JarnoO fka 999> guess we can pan back to Bee
12:57:29 <Cooper> 9 min BSB int
12:57:30 <JarnoO fka 999> HK caught Grand. 1235 G1Q | 10m07s
12:57:35 <Cooper> Bee is immenent
12:58:48 <Betty> there´s the Grand watchers coming
13:00:05 <JarnoO fka 999> Indy
13:00:06 <JarnoO fka 999> .
13:00:07 <JarnoO fka 999> .
13:00:08 <JarnoO fka 999> .
13:00:08 <JarnoO fka 999> .
13:00:09 <JarnoO fka 999> .
13:00:17 <Cooper> .
13:00:26 <Cooper> I had to get one
13:01:22 <ynpvisitor2> Cooper broke Lion.
13:02:12 <Cooper> I will take the blame for that, but since I caused Bee to start indy can we call it even?
13:02:20 <JarnoO fka 999> has a text been sent?
13:02:34 <Katie> No text yet. Are you sending or should I?
13:02:46 <JarnoO fka 999> you do it, please
13:02:49 <Cooper> I would send, but am not Admin
13:02:56 <JarnoO fka 999> just making sure, as I can't send one :)
13:03:45 <ynpvisitor42> Woot
13:03:50 <Katie> Text sent
13:03:51 <ynpvisitor42> Working cam and BHI!
13:03:51 <ynpvisitor2> Someone rescue Kevin from his pile of paperwork.
13:03:57 <CraigC> cam has been working for about 90 minutes straight?
13:04:09 <Cooper> Hey Eric
13:04:11 <Eric> Hi all :-D
13:04:12 <CraigC> hey Eric, long time
13:04:17 <Cooper> How are you doing? been a while
13:04:19 <JarnoO fka 999> afternoon Bee watchers :)
13:04:26 <Eric> Summer has been busy :-D
13:04:37 <Betty> hi CraigC and Eric
13:04:43 <CraigC> hey Betty
13:04:43 <ynpvisitor2> Lots of people watching that little geyser.
13:04:45 <Dave from B™> I don't remember an Eric.
13:04:49 <Eric> I am doing well...
13:05:11 <CraigC> Eric, you havent missed hardly anything here, cam is down way more than up
13:05:12 <Eric> I just can't stand the cam going up and down continuously :-(
13:05:23 <Betty> you met him before, Dave
13:05:24 <CraigC> I check in occasionally
13:05:30 <Eric> Yep, one of the reasons I have been gone so much
13:05:31 <Dave from B™> I figured that had you frustrated. It is bothering us all
13:05:34 <Kitt> yay, finally get to see a bee
13:05:46 <Eric> Hopefully Kitt!
13:05:48 <Betty> hi Kitt
13:05:59 <CraigC> Kitt, when did you leave the park?
13:06:00 <Eric> Nice looking BHI
13:06:00 <Betty> you not in the park?
13:06:13 <Cooper> and a reliable one
13:06:17 <Kitt> Saturday
13:06:17 <Eric> Looks really tall
13:07:18 <Kitt> Brian has a really good handle on south bubbler, west bubbler, and when bee is getting ready
13:07:35 <ynpvisitor2> pump
13:07:39 <CraigC> looks like i have at least 2 trips back up there in the next month, once with my trailer for labor day, then taking my mom back up again
13:08:02 <Eric> Would love to see brian's analysis
13:08:16 <Eric> Sounds like an excellent sput writeup
13:08:22 <JarnoO fka 999> am I seeing things or has BHCCI joined in on the fun too?
13:08:45 <Kitt> he was timing between the start of West Bubbler and the start of South Bubbler
13:08:53 <Eric> Mothra on Washburn NE
13:08:55 <CraigC> nice
13:08:57 <Dave from B™> CraigC, are you sure your mom wants to go even though I won't be there?
13:09:06 <Eric> haha :-D
13:09:14 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I havent broken that to her yet, shhhh
13:09:24 <Eric> Nice Kitt...is it pretty consistent right now?
13:09:43 <Kitt> it shortens from about 4 minutes to about 2 minutes
13:10:17 <Kitt> South Bubbler interval shortens and its duration lengthens
13:10:43 <Eric> Brian is an awesome "process" guy...if it's the same brian who loves Grotto
13:10:45 <CraigC> so if cam ever gets running right, we should start logging west bubbler too
13:11:08 <Eric> West is really hard to see from the cam I think
13:11:10 <Betty> Eric, we decided to stay in Days Inn in Gresham frm Aug 22-25
13:11:20 <Kitt> so you get about 10 minute or less interval for South that lasts longer than 5 minutes plus the water in indy slowly rises
13:11:37 <Cooper> c-mon Bee
13:11:50 <Kitt> if we get waves on indy then usually we will get Indicator starting
13:11:53 <ynpvisitor2> 3 days in Gresham?
13:12:08 <ynpvisitor2> More waves?
13:12:16 <JarnoO fka 999> so now Indy has copied Grand's pre-eruption action?
13:12:18 <Betty> Prtland East
13:12:34 <Eric> That area is a little sketchy
13:12:39 <Kitt> otherwise Beehive starts before the waves on indy point, so S. and W. Bubbler are our only clues
13:12:56 <ynpvisitor2> I could think of better places to spend 3 days.
13:13:03 <Betty> we stayed there last time we were in Prtland
13:13:15 <Cooper> Hey Kat
13:13:19 <CraigC> hey Kat
13:13:20 <Eric> ok...as long as you know what you are getting into :-D
13:13:23 <Betty> my o is broken
13:13:23 <Kitt> these waves can be seen while sitting on the benches below Beehive
13:13:25 <Kat> Ho all!
13:13:32 <Kat> Hi Ho all!
13:13:37 <Eric> ohhh, maybe a different days inn than I am thinking
13:13:37 <Kat> :)
13:13:41 <JarnoO fka 999> afternoon Kat
13:13:45 <Cooper> :bee:
13:13:47 <CraigC> bee
13:13:47 <Eric> BH
13:13:47 <JarnoO fka 999> :bee:
13:13:48 <Cooper> .
13:13:48 <Cooper> .
13:13:49 <Cooper> .
13:13:52 <Cooper> BOOM
13:13:57 <Kitt> yay Beehive
13:13:57 <Eric> Nice!
13:14:12 <Kat> Baboom! Just in time!
13:14:20 <Kat> :bee::bee::bee:
13:14:35 <ynpvisitor2> Speaking of hi ho. Did you hear they found Snow whites grave stone?
13:14:41 <Cooper> So Eric, have you done St. Helens yet?
13:14:53 <JarnoO fka 999> I think Bee has been reading the book "101 Ways to Start an Eruption" and then chapter 4: Great Fountain
13:14:58 <Kat> :thumbsup:
13:14:59 <Cooper> Tilted and Tiny
13:15:10 <Eric> Betty, I am actually taking time off from work that week and doing some vacationing with the family...so would love to hike/drink/dinner while you are here :-D
13:15:11 <Kitt> This view makes bee look small
13:15:23 <Eric> Haven't done Helens yet...couple more weeks
13:15:31 <ynpvisitor2> It does look short
13:15:53 <Betty> that would be great
13:16:03 <JarnoO fka 999> looks about average if you'd ask me
13:16:07 <Kitt> we have had some really tall eruptions when the air is calm
13:16:16 <ynpvisitor2> It is growing.
13:16:19 <Cooper> it looks nicer now
13:16:35 <JarnoO fka 999> bye Indi, thanks for being reliable today
13:16:39 <JarnoO fka 999> Indy*
13:16:44 <Kat> Wow Bee!
13:16:54 <Cooper> Here Here to Indy
13:17:08 <Betty> we planned to be in Portland the 23rd, and Mt. Hood the 24th
13:17:08 <Cooper> Shower
13:17:56 <Kitt> lately we get one or two pre Beehive indicators and the rest are after Bee starts or no indy
13:18:27 <Kat> Bee can give me a shower any day any rime!
13:18:29 <Cooper> Wait a Minute, the cam stayed up for a WHOLE Eruption
13:18:35 <Kitt> well that was nice
13:18:48 <Cooper> That can not be possible, a live cam
13:18:50 <JarnoO fka 999> it was. Very good start
13:18:58 <Kat> That was awesome!
13:19:01 <Betty> not for me :-( only frames
13:19:10 <Cooper> Oh, Sorry Betty
13:19:17 <Cooper> I got it from Indy to End
13:19:30 <Betty> great
13:19:33 <Cooper> First Time in a Looooonnnnngggggggg Time
13:19:42 <Cooper> OF window
13:20:26 <ynpvisitor2> Betty, when on hood, you need to go to Little Crater Lake.
13:23:23 <Betty> thx, ynpvisitor2, I´m thankful for all hints
13:24:53 <ynpvisitor2> The Forest Service Compound next to Timothy Lake is interesting also.
13:25:19 <ynpvisitor2> Well, off to other things.
13:25:39 <Cooper> Bye #2
13:25:46 <JarnoO fka 999> cya #2
13:25:49 <Betty> cya
13:27:25 <Cooper> Who else is watching Cardinals at Dogers
13:27:35 <Cooper> Dodgers**
13:32:56 <Cooper> is Joe on here?
13:35:28 <Dave from B™> not me...I'm at work
13:36:40 <Cooper> OF
13:36:43 <Cooper> ie Static
13:39:48 <ynpvisitor101> Good chance for 5 Grands today
13:40:28 <JarnoO fka 999> would be the first one in quite some time
13:41:08 <Dave from B™> wow 5hr 1 minute yesterday
13:42:47 <Betty> it knows you´re not near ;-)
13:43:00 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. I have a couple of errands to do today. Have a great evening everyone!
13:43:07 <Dave from B™> haha Betty
13:43:11 <Cooper> Bye Dave, Enjoy
13:43:16 <JarnoO fka 999> also an 8m57s two-burst today
13:43:17 <Betty> bye Dave
13:43:26 <JarnoO fka 999> cya Dave
13:50:51 <JarnoO fka 999> This picture looks almost like a painting, such a perfect composition of Mammoth: https://i.redd.it/ygab5o25apc31.jpg
13:52:07 <Cooper> you'll take a picture like that soon
13:52:18 <JarnoO fka 999> define soon
13:52:29 <Cooper> next 10 years
13:52:59 <Cooper> once you are done studying IT, or if you Go and Work In YNP
14:00:37 <Betty> time to head out. Enjoy the 5-Grand day
14:00:50 <Cooper> Bye Betty
14:01:07 <JarnoO fka 999> cya Betty
14:09:11 <JarnoO fka 999> NPS has a Daisy tiem
14:09:13 <JarnoO fka 999> time*
14:12:56 <CraigC> wow, has something being fixed on the cam?
14:13:34 <Katie> I'm wondering that, too. No communication from NPS staff to cam team, but Dave is out this week, so maybe... ???
14:13:35 <CraigC> has it really been up steady since 1119?
14:14:03 <CraigC> who is camop right now?
14:15:49 <JarnoO fka 999> question now, of course, is whether or not the cam will stay up (that is, no more redicilous numbers of outages like we've had) for the remainder of the day
14:16:16 <CraigC> whoa
14:16:23 <Cooper> is that Yellow cord new?
14:16:33 <CraigC> it looks used to me
14:16:39 <Cooper> And is that them putting in new poles
14:16:55 <Cooper> I think they fixed it
14:16:58 <JarnoO fka 999> I don're recall seeing yellow cord lying around there
14:17:04 <JarnoO fka 999> don't*
14:19:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure what that was all about.
14:20:52 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, have you heard of anything being done with the cam today?
14:20:57 <Katie> Looked like an extension cord.
14:21:35 <Cooper> did it just need a little Electrical Boost
14:22:15 <Katie> Nah - if it was a voltage problem, that would have been easy to identify.
14:22:21 <Kevin L™🌵> No.
14:22:41 <CraigC> maybe the radio got replaced
14:23:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I hope so.
14:23:11 <Katie> That was the plan. :) Hopefully this is a make/model/frequency that likes this home. The other, decidedly, did not.
14:23:31 <CraigC> it hasn't run 3 hours straight in a long time
14:23:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I was locked on control screen.
14:24:01 <CraigC> Joe will be elated
14:24:50 <JarnoO fka 999> how long would it take to replace a radio?
14:25:16 <Katie> About an hour or less
14:25:39 <CraigC> we hadn't been made aware that it had even been shipped yet
14:26:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe the guys on the roof hit something.
14:26:21 <CraigC> LOL
14:26:35 <Kevin L™🌵> It is much better
14:26:42 <CraigC> the "ALWAYS ON" button
14:27:14 <JarnoO fka 999> that guy probably hit the save power button in such way that it is always turned off :)
14:27:23 <CraigC> was that a raven flying up to the workers to beg for treats?
14:29:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Beg? They just kick the worker's butts and take what they want!
14:29:50 <Katie> There seems to be a raven nest up there. We see the raven fairly often. Dave has even mentioned them in emails - the raven techs or the resident ravens
14:30:02 <Cooper> Don't saw the cam off
14:31:18 <Katie> I have a suspicion (good suspicion) that they did a temp mount for new radio to test it for a while and are now working on permanent mount.
14:31:44 <JarnoO fka 999> test went very good
14:32:31 <JarnoO fka 999> and I bet they've noticed it too
14:33:31 <JarnoO fka 999> I also didn't see that loose piece of duct tape hanging when the cam swung towards the cam cables
14:35:20 <JarnoO fka 999> also, wildfire spotted on August 3 near Pollux Peak, dubbed 'Pollux Fire': https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/080619.htm
14:36:13 <Katie> They will be looking at Tx and Rx RSSIs (signal strengths both direcitons), SNRs (signal to noise ratios), Jitter (interference) and some other stuff on the radios (both sides), too. Quite a crew, actually. We'd have one-two guys doing that job (and me monitoring and reporting those monitored values) back at the office.
14:37:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe someone put another quarter in the machine.
14:37:24 <JarnoO fka 999> regarding that fire, no immediate threat to buildings, trails and campsites, so it'll be monitored
14:39:31 <Katie> I said usually less than an hour - my boss and I did work on one for almost 3 hours yesterday. It was at the edge of our broadcast arc. He moved the AP a bit to move the arc and then I had to monitor all the other subscriber modules and compare their present stats to baseline. But that was a situation with a dozen or so radios involved, not just 2. But... I'd rather they be thorough!
14:39:33 <JarnoO fka 999> Bulger and Hole
14:39:51 <CraigC> wowow
14:39:55 <JarnoO fka 999> OT ie/ns
14:39:58 <CraigC> and OT
14:40:16 <CraigC> mini trifecta
14:41:58 <Cooper> Bulger Hole
14:42:02 <Cooper> Bulger and OT
14:42:04 <Cooper> NICE
14:42:08 <Cooper> Well Bbbl.....
14:42:11 <Cooper> My brothers car...
14:42:18 <Cooper> is steaming radiator fluid
14:42:19 <Cooper> ..
14:42:20 <JarnoO fka 999> interesting, Katie. Thanks
14:42:28 <CraigC> I hope some gazers are there catching this
14:42:36 <Cooper> and I think I might need a fire extinguisher now
14:42:42 <Cooper> okay, FIRE
14:42:45 <Cooper> bbl
14:42:52 <JarnoO fka 999> you seem to have some bad luck this week, Cooper
14:43:02 <CraigC> fyi, in case of fire, get off the internet and put out fire
14:44:04 <CraigC> Kevin, thanks for the awesome cam work to see that
14:44:50 <Cooper> okay, no more fire
14:44:57 <Cooper> Now it is back to steam
14:45:34 <Cooper> I am waiting for it to become a geyser, it is intermittently putting out steam in big puffs
14:45:43 <JarnoO fka 999> lol
14:46:06 <CraigC> throw some soap in it
14:46:25 <Cooper> and according to walkies talkies(FRS Radios) it is misting with the big steam puffs
14:46:38 <Cooper> We had to use water to put it out
14:46:58 <Cooper> So there is likely going to be a predictable geyser in my brothers car in a few minutes
14:47:19 <JarnoO fka 999> doesn't your brother's car have a fire extinguisher?
14:47:34 <Cooper> it does
14:47:44 <Cooper> but we did not want to get in the car to grab it
14:47:58 <Cooper> as we thought it was going to go BOOM
14:48:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Lot of customers at Aurum.
14:48:40 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, wondering is SS and HK
14:48:42 <JarnoO fka 999> nice Aurum splashing
14:48:42 <Cooper> so we used a squirt bottle, and Garden Hose
14:48:45 <Kevin L™🌵> big splash
14:49:10 <JarnoO fka 999> how's your mother doing, by the way, Cooper?
14:49:36 <Cooper> she is doing better
14:49:49 <JarnoO fka 999> good to hear
14:49:50 <Cooper> Her memory is improving rapidly
14:50:07 <Cooper> and she is going back to teaching once the "kids" start
14:50:14 <JarnoO fka 999> that's some nice progress
14:50:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Great!
14:50:34 <CraigC> I like to sit at doublet and feel/hear the thumps while waiting for Aurum
14:50:40 <Katie> That's great news, Cooper! So glad to hear it.
14:50:48 <Cooper> For a while there we thought she was going to be a vegetable, but she beat the odds( according to doctors 1/100000)
14:50:52 <Cooper> Thanks Everyone!
14:50:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Very fun place Craig.
14:51:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Another good splash
14:51:40 <Cooper> Man have we all spent a long time waiting for Aurum, IRL
14:51:58 <Cooper> Every Geyser Gazer loves their Aurum
14:52:04 <CraigC> last trip, I had to ask(suggest) to a private tour guide to give her doublet speech further away from doublet so that she doesn't drown it out for those of us there listening for it
14:53:00 <Cooper> maybe one day Doublet will have a large eruption
14:53:00 <Kevin L™🌵> My Brother loved that one. He never did get an Aurum.
14:53:58 <CraigC> Artemisia wins on thumps, though
14:54:09 <CraigC> then Black Sand Pool
14:54:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes it does.
14:54:39 <Cooper> Oh, Black Sand Pool, LOVE IT
14:54:53 <CraigC> uh oh
14:55:10 <Cooper> NO
14:55:11 <Cooper> NO
14:55:12 <Cooper> NO
14:55:13 <Cooper> NO
14:55:13 <Cooper> NO
14:55:14 <Cooper> NO
14:55:15 <Cooper> NO
14:55:16 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
14:55:25 <Cooper> NO
14:55:26 <Cooper> NO
14:55:28 <Cooper> NO
14:55:32 <Cooper> YES
14:55:33 <Cooper> N
14:55:35 <Cooper> O
14:55:38 <CraigC> I have to leave anyways, green waste dump opens in 5 mins
14:55:49 <Cooper> Bye Craig
14:56:58 <JarnoO fka 999> I think they're now permanently putting the new radio in place
14:57:18 <Cooper> If they are not, then NONONNOOO
14:57:30 <Cooper> Maybe I should invent a Teleporter
14:57:40 <Cooper> And go to YNP when ever I want
14:58:19 <Cooper> I would keep it mostly to myself though
14:58:34 <Cooper> Maybe give a few gazers some, and my family but that would be it
14:58:37 <JarnoO fka 999> I could use a teleporter, too, though
14:59:23 <Kevin L™🌵> And now a word from our sponsor....
14:59:35 <Cooper> Jarno, I will make you a deal, If I invent a teleporter you get one for free.
14:59:49 <JarnoO fka 999> accepted
15:00:08 <Cooper> AND, if anyone else invents a teleporter, I will give one to you
15:00:37 <Cooper> Deal?
15:00:40 <Cooper> OF
15:00:42 <JarnoO fka 999> yeah, sure
15:00:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam is down but ESPN has lawn mower racing.
15:00:57 <Cooper> Post the link
15:02:03 <Cooper> Well, back to the old dead life of the cam
15:04:33 <ynpvisitor64> Jsteamy
15:05:55 <Kevin L™🌵> If you are looking for lawn mower racing it is on ESPN2
15:07:22 <Cooper> thanks
15:17:23 <JarnoO fka 999> thought I saw a Rocket jet
15:17:56 <JarnoO fka 999> morning Graham
15:18:01 <JarnoO fka 999> afternoon*
15:18:11 <Cooper> Afternnon Graham
15:18:18 <Cooper> Afternoon**
15:20:11 <GO OBLONG> nice to see BH is tied for the most eruptions logged in a single year .. 22
15:20:23 <GO OBLONG> hello there
15:21:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave
15:22:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Smith is racing lawn mowers
15:32:29 <ynpvisitor3> only 22 beehives this year?
15:32:55 <Cooper> I think he means Bulger's Hole
15:45:53 <GO OBLONG> 1 more Bulger's Hole (BH) and it will be the buig hit of the season :)
15:47:03 <JarnoO fka 999> by the way, the cam was stable for a good couple of hours before you came on here, Graham
15:52:55 <JarnoO fka 999> can the cam dome be rotated once an opportunity arises?
16:11:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you get the cam Graham?
16:13:19 <GO OBLONG> yes
16:13:22 <GO OBLONG> Bulger
16:15:05 <JarnoO fka 999> OT ie
16:15:08 <GO OBLONG> if by "get" you mean have the controls for a few seconds
16:15:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate
16:22:29 <GO OBLONG> at least it let me move the cam to OF
16:50:39 <GO OBLONG> a 1h59m interval for Daisy, nice
16:51:06 <JarnoO fka 999> yup
16:56:45 <GO OBLONG> bulger
16:57:31 <JarnoO fka 999> major
16:58:37 <JarnoO fka 999> how many Holes are needed before it surpasses the 2011 performance?
16:59:31 <JarnoO fka 999> Hole!
16:59:53 <ynpvisitor113> Wow hole is really erupting
17:00:16 <GO OBLONG> yeah
17:00:56 <JarnoO fka 999> Minafuku caught both Bulger and Hole :)
17:03:07 <JarnoO fka 999> might be worth zooming out when the cam comes back up. Daisy is nearly at the 2h point and seen the most recent intervals it might go in the next 10 or so minutes, if not sooner
17:03:52 <JarnoO fka 999> Bulger done
17:08:38 <JarnoO fka 999> OT ie
17:12:44 <JarnoO fka 999> Daisy
17:16:39 <Cooper> Back
17:16:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Front
17:16:56 <Cooper> I see that the 3 hours of constant up was a random occurence
17:18:07 <LindaG> Hi all
17:18:22 <JarnoO fka 999> I think (or wishfully think) that today was testing of the new radio, with hopefully tomorrow or the day after the permanent installation of the new radio
17:18:26 <JarnoO fka 999> afternoon Linda
17:18:30 <LindaG> That was some show by bulger and its hole 😃
17:18:39 <JarnoO fka 999> yup, two nice eruptions
17:18:39 <Cooper> Hey Linda
17:18:56 <LindaG> Cooper, hi there
17:31:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Castle ie
17:31:36 <Cooper> :castle:
17:39:39 <JarnoO fka 999> not really convincing
17:48:04 <GO OBLONG> grand
17:48:39 <GO OBLONG> setup for 5 eruptions today
17:50:30 <ynpvisitor41> I can’t see anything
17:50:49 <ynpvisitor41> How do you see it?
17:53:50 <ynpvisitor41> 5 hrs 12 minutes, it took its time!!
17:58:01 <Cooper> b1 done
17:58:25 <ynpvisitor41> You saw the end of b1?
17:58:42 <GO OBLONG> bulger
17:58:56 <Cooper> well, I say the non-erupting Grand
17:59:00 <GO OBLONG> dont you cound bursts when the cam stops and restarts?
17:59:10 <Cooper> after the cam came back
17:59:54 <ynpvisitor41> Bulger looked happy
18:01:07 <ynpvisitor41> Looks done
18:01:22 <Cooper> oops
18:01:31 <Cooper> I don't think Grand has initials
18:01:42 <ynpvisitor41> GO OBLONG, it was a 10 burst??
18:02:24 <ynpvisitor41> No one posted Bulger
18:06:47 <ynpvisitor41> HK is back to being at every Grand for now
18:11:17 <GO OBLONG> i expect he will be out for the 5th one today
18:24:42 <Cooper> OF
18:53:38 <Cooper> Nice SB note
18:57:02 <CraigC> I'll guess SB erupts within 5 days now
18:58:08 <Cooper> I say the 11th at 0921
18:58:14 <Cooper> OT
18:58:59 <GO OBLONG> at least things are getting better
19:00:10 <GO OBLONG> I am going with the 14th
19:01:22 <GO OBLONG> maybe the same day as Morning
19:01:42 <CraigC> who's on first
19:23:13 <Cooper> Lion 1903 ini
19:26:23 <Cooper> Hey Linda!
19:26:27 <Cooper> Daisy
19:26:31 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
19:31:16 <GO OBLONG> hi Linda. did you get some nice storms today?
19:39:43 <ynpvisitor27> .
19:54:28 <Cooper> OF
19:58:38 <GO OBLONG> goodnight from me
19:58:50 <GO OBLONG> looks like Cam has gotten worse again
20:02:58 <Cooper> night ye who are left
