05:35:55 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
05:36:42 <Joe1> Hi Craig, cam is bad, how are you?
05:37:04 <CraigC> good, sorry about cam
05:37:33 <CraigC> glad they got one of the steps done on getting radio
05:38:06 <Joe1> Yes!! I hope it gets there quickly
05:38:27 <CraigC> quickly = this year?
05:40:32 <Joe1> This month??
05:40:54 <CraigC> hopefully, I'll try to be optimistic
05:42:41 <Joe1> If it works it will be nice, once again
05:46:29 <Joe1> Craig, where are you??
05:51:08 <Rice> Morning Guys.
05:51:26 <Joe1> Hi Rice
05:52:49 <Rice> The radio you guys keep talking about, Is that the wireless signal to the VEC?
05:53:46 <CraigC> hey Rice
05:54:17 <Rice> Craig, I see you caught Steamboat again yesterday.
05:54:39 <CraigC> Joe, I am at the Grizzly RV in West, where my sis works. My mom stayed with her again last night, and will spend today with her, then the next 2 with me
05:54:55 <CraigC> Rice, yep :)
05:55:16 <CraigC> it seemed a lot taller, but I can't verify that
06:01:50 <Joe1> Rside ie
06:11:44 <CraigC> Cooper, I'll make a deal with you(in public), next time you throw a tantrum, do it in private, not here, and I will keep my response private in return.
06:12:00 <Cooper> ok
06:12:10 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:14:46 <GO SOMETHING> morning. whats todays plan Craig?
06:15:05 <Cooper> wait Craig, you are still in YNP?
06:15:15 <CraigC> GO SOMETHING, morning, I am sitting here trying to decide which SOMETHING to go try and see
06:15:53 <CraigC> I will probably load my bike on, and go hit Lone Star to check the log books
06:16:02 <CraigC> Cooper, yeah, for another week or two
06:16:14 <CraigC> ooops, wait, for another SB or two.....fixed
06:16:28 <Joe1> :):)
06:17:43 <LindaG> Good morning, reporting for duty 😃
06:17:48 <Cooper> Hi Linda
06:17:57 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
06:18:10 <Joe1> Hi Linda, its about time :)
06:18:27 <CraigC> hey Linda
06:19:04 <Joe1> After 8 in NJ
06:19:40 <LindaG> Joe1, yes, am I late?
06:19:58 <Joe1> Just kidding :):)
06:20:26 <LindaG> Running slow today ☺
06:21:08 <LindaG> Well I'm in, but it froze
06:21:32 <Joe1> I'm slow every day, but that is another matter :)
06:22:19 <LindaG> 🙄
06:23:09 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
06:28:15 <Joe1> I think OF erupted during one of the many minute outages, now we have the static for OF, hard to catch it live.
06:28:49 <Cooper> off for school. bbl
06:28:52 <LindaG> Ah the irony if it all
06:29:04 <LindaG> Cooper, bye
06:33:37 <LindaG> Lion
06:37:48 <GO SOMETHING> i like that the only prediction missing is OF
06:38:51 <CraigC> hey Kevin
06:39:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning.
06:39:12 <LindaG> Oh i guess I should go over there and see if we can catch it
06:39:21 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, morning
06:40:21 <Joe1> You can point at It, but the cam won't let you see it :)
06:40:35 <LindaG> I'm stuck
06:41:13 <LindaG> Joe1, probably better to watch static
06:41:26 <Joe1> Yep :)
06:42:45 <Joe1> I pointed at it for over an hour when it should have erupted but the many minute failures hid it
06:43:01 <CraigC> later, folks
06:43:13 <ynpvisitor65> CraigC, later dude
06:43:17 <GO SOMETHING> yeah my countdown is at 10
06:43:19 <Joe1> bye Craig, have fun
06:43:19 <ynpvisitor65> OF
06:43:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck today Craig.
06:43:31 <GO SOMETHING> bye Craig, god luck with Lne Star
06:43:32 <Kevin L™🌵> OF ie static
06:43:34 <CraigC> thanks
06:44:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Look for berries along the trail.
06:45:34 <GO SOMETHING> Look for bear'ies along the trail
06:45:49 <Kevin L™🌵> That too!
06:47:44 <ynpvisitor65> So,what dome think, long on OF?
06:48:00 <ynpvisitor65> *do we
06:48:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Looked like a long
06:49:01 <ynpvisitor65> Ok
06:51:28 <Joe1> last , so yes #660646 was still going
06:52:45 <Joe1> static at 0646 was still going, so yess, #66
06:53:50 <LindaGt> That was me and I did enter as long
06:54:42 <Joe1> I have also
07:07:08 <LindaG> Morning dave
07:07:33 <Dave from B™> Morning Linda, Joe
07:07:48 <Joe1> Hi Dave
07:10:13 <LindaG> In the time is took me to refresh and choose down basin, it froze
07:11:18 <LindaG> Ah ha success
07:18:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Now I know why Dave hit that deer:
07:19:18 <LindaG> I guess that is frozen water down there, strange to see in august
07:20:00 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:20:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Well Christmas is only 4 days away.
07:20:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Dave.
07:20:24 <Dave from B™> Linda, I'm fairly certain that isn't frozen water. What is the temp in UGB?
07:20:35 <LindaG> 35
07:21:23 <Joe1> Yep Kevin, this is the first year in forever that I will not be in YNP for Christmas :(
07:21:46 <LindaG> 🙁
07:22:23 <Kevin L™🌵> After Hams left it isn't the same anyway.
07:23:22 <Joe1> The past many years have been disappointing
07:25:57 <LindaG> Just steam at bee
07:26:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Hot honey and biscuits. Sounds good.
07:26:55 <LindaG> LC ie
07:28:46 <LindaG> Dave from B™, by the way, my efforts last week only backfired and I found myself singing you know what all day
07:29:33 <LindaG> Daisy
07:30:20 <Joe> This was the most that was done last year at the Inn,
07:31:05 <Dave from B™> haha Linda. Serves you right:D
07:31:28 <LindaG> When I caught myself doing, I had to laugh
07:31:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I loved Upper Hams with the decorations and Christmas music.
07:31:34 <Dave from B™> So, are Xmas in Aug decorations only up for 1 day?
07:32:00 <LindaG> Joe, nice
07:33:10 <Joe> Last year Upper Hams had one little tree, barely visible, and no music
07:34:15 <Dave from B™> Do you suppose staffers get tired of answering tourist questions about xmas trees in August?
07:34:23 <LindaG> Love Christmas music
07:35:08 <LindaG> Marmot cave
07:35:41 <Joe> You should see the looks on tourist faces when you wish servers and cashiers Merry Christmas :)
07:36:27 <Joe> especially now with minimal decorations
07:37:30 <LindaG> Looks like aurum could go also
07:37:43 <LindaG> Lion
07:37:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I hate to see longtime traditions die.
07:38:47 <Dave from B™> Probably an area I shouldn't tread but do you think influx of foreign staffers has kind of changed this or is it corporate big wigs making the deicsions?
07:39:55 <lc> morning
07:40:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I think corporate. Hams had the tradition. Once Delaware North got it they probably had no idea about it.
07:40:07 <LindaG> Well I Prob a ly shouldn't either but a Christmas tree is really more pagan than christian
07:41:38 <lc> Joe, sure looks like Ma in that picture. :-/
07:41:57 <Kevin L™🌵> The Christmas tree was evergreen symbolizing the eternal life of Christ.
07:43:01 <LindaG> I guess what I'm saying is it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people
07:43:28 <Joe> lc I have never met MA so I do not know
07:43:53 <Joe> Ma*
07:44:24 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, that's interesting Kevin I had never heard that
07:44:27 <lc> I just called her to look at it and ask who does that look like and she said "me".
07:45:07 <Joe> Nice
07:46:48 <Dave from B™> lc, how often does Ma sit in the Inn?
07:47:15 <lc> not very.
07:47:37 <lc> don't you think it looks like her?
07:48:25 <lc> I don't remember ever seeing a Christmas tree there.
07:48:41 <Joe> They still close the Restaurants and Grills early and have Christmas meal and gift exchange in the evening for the staff, at least they did last year
07:49:05 <Dave from B™> Yes it does look like her
07:53:16 <Joe> I have always left the hotel/cabin 'maids' something, and always receive very nice Christmasy notes in return :)
07:54:06 <LindaG> Joe, 😊🎄
07:55:14 <Dave from B™> Joe, you are a kind wonder you have been married for so long:)
07:56:22 <Joe> Thanks Dave, I don't think that is my wife's opinion tho :)
07:57:05 <lc> Ma and married 52 years two days ago.

08:30:56 <LindaG> LC ie
08:31:12 <Dave from B™> Wow...8 years and you haven't hit a rock while driving:)
08:31:35 <Cooper> Hey Everyone
08:31:41 <LindaG> Hmm wonder if I missed lion
08:31:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:31:52 <Cooper> at school, in my TA calss, so I will be on- and off
08:32:00 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
08:32:12 <Plug Nickel> What's TA?
08:32:31 <Cooper> Hi Lidna, Kevin
08:32:36 <Cooper> Linda*
08:32:38 <Cooper> oops
08:32:43 <Cooper> TA= Teacher Assistant
08:33:11 <Plug Nickel> Thanks
08:35:57 <LindaG> Bulger
08:35:59 <Cooper> Bulger
08:36:06 <Dave from B™> Morning Cooper. What is a smart kid like you doing wasting a class on TA'ing?
08:36:20 <Cooper> Hey Dave ....
08:36:49 <Cooper> I am with my 7th Grade Science Teacher, I took this class to spend some time on here, and to see him.
08:36:56 <Cooper> As he is the Best Teacher ever
08:36:59 <Cooper> + I get free food
08:37:12 <Cooper> + an Easy A+
08:37:48 <Cooper> So A+, Seeing my Science Teacher, and Free Food= Good Class, and I need energy for my Algebra 2 Class, and French 1
08:40:09 <Cooper> and I mean Geez, I am 13, I get tiered quikly of Algebra 2, French, 9th Grade Science.
08:40:31 <Cooper> But this year, I have a normal schedule, a first.:)
08:40:51 <Cooper> Otters at Oblong!!!!!!!
08:41:15 <GO SOMETHING> nice, dont see them very often
08:42:42 <LindaG> Too bad we can't zoom in closer than what we have
08:43:17 <LindaG> Have a feeling lion might be done
08:46:02 <Dave from B™> Cooper, a good night's sleep is the key to learning
08:47:06 <Cooper> that always helps ...
08:47:21 <Cooper> But, I have a before school science club
08:47:47 <Cooper> and once my foot is better, I will transition to running, both start at 0700
08:48:08 <Cooper> he also has a nice comfortable couch that I get all to my-self
08:48:10 <LindaG> Have to go to bed earlier
08:48:15 <Dave from B™> And, as far as this room have your entire life to be here
08:48:26 <Cooper> I got to bed at 2100
08:48:31 <Cooper> 9 PM
08:48:45 <Cooper> I do
08:48:46 <LindaG> 👍
08:49:33 <Cooper> Anytime I do not have something to do, I get on here, and I have a large screen, so I can work on school stuff on 1/2 and this on the other 1/2
08:50:10 <Cooper> It calms my nerves most of the time, and I always love watching geysers, even if they are just snippets.
08:50:29 <Cooper> So right now I am also studying Vocab
08:51:29 <LindaG> Ng
08:51:30 <LindaG> .
08:51:30 <LindaG> .
08:51:30 <LindaG> .
08:51:31 <LindaG> .
08:51:37 <Cooper> WOho
08:51:39 <Cooper> AWESOME
08:51:49 <Cooper> Good Eye
08:51:56 <Cooper> NG heard me
08:51:56 <LindaG> That was quick
08:52:03 <Cooper> Minor
08:52:17 <LindaG> Yay
08:52:27 <Cooper> Maybe we have a series coming on, I would like that.
08:53:27 <Plug Nickel> Otters!
08:53:47 <Plug Nickel> (not visible on the cam, but noted)
08:53:54 <Plug Nickel> (not visible on the cam, but noted)
08:54:27 <Cooper> I love NG IRL
08:54:45 <Cooper> like I love Sawmill *sniffle* *sniffle*
08:55:05 <Cooper> Sniffle= Tearing up
08:56:12 <LindaG> Cooper, I think everyone missed NG except for you and I
08:56:26 <Cooper> *Sniffle*
08:57:22 <GO SOMETHING> yeah, i guess GO GOGGLE was the something I was looking for
08:57:37 <Cooper> yup
08:57:52 <Cooper> your name strikes again:)
08:58:08 <LindaG> 😃
08:58:27 <GO SOMETHING> only 1h14m after the last Lion. Oh well, i guess my advice to check 1-2 hors after Lion still holds
08:58:27 <LindaG> I haven't seen an NG in quite a while
08:58:49 <Rice> Is river level still High? If so that would explain no F&M this year..
08:58:50 <LindaG> So thatb was nice
08:58:55 <Cooper> me neither, I missed the one a fe wdays ago
08:59:49 <GO SOMETHING> al,most 4 days since the last report, and then much longer intervals
09:00:34 <GO SOMETHING> 68th logged this season, way ahead of the other interesting ones
09:03:12 <Cooper> Hey Jake
09:03:32 <LindaG> Hi jake
09:03:40 <Jake> my new geyser for the last trip was UNNG-GHG-16 I think I just saw it on here
09:04:27 <ynpvisitor50> should NG have a minor designation on it?
09:04:31 <Cooper> Hey Joe
09:04:58 <Joe> NG, here is NG for those that missed it
09:06:43 <Jake> after watching Joe's video, that NG needs an extra-minor designation. nice catch!
09:07:20 <LindaG> About 20 seconds
09:07:25 <LindaG> I'll marknot
09:07:35 <LindaG> I'll mark it
09:08:31 <Joe1> Attach the video to your post so future lookers can see it :)
09:08:32 <Jake> ok, tallest geysers with shortest duration eruptions? go....
09:08:32 <ynpvisitor50> Xmin - haha
09:09:35 <Cooper> Hi Katie
09:10:06 <Cooper> Bye Everyone, I am off to my next class be back on later.
09:10:19 <Katie (in&out)> Have a good morning, Cooper.
09:10:51 <LindaG> Ok I attached
09:12:13 <Joe1> tks
09:12:55 <Dave from B™> Aurum for your q, Jake
09:13:10 <Dave from B™> What else is big under 2 minutes?
09:13:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand
09:13:39 <Cooper> Haha, I read my time wrong
09:13:56 <Cooper> "Passing" period starts, not ends at 9:15
09:14:03 <Cooper> oh, Hey Grand
09:14:05 <Jake> Plume was tall and quick, Atomizer minors, NG minor, Aurum
09:14:14 <Cooper> Thanks for going a minute before I leave
09:14:26 <Cooper> Now I have to leave
09:14:31 <Cooper> bye Everyone, and Grand, NG
09:14:50 <LindaG> Lkitt entered grand
09:14:58 <LindaG> *kitt
09:17:54 <Jake> Vixen some years would also make that list
09:18:43 <Jake> Plume was more satisfying than NG minor though. NG minor is just so dang quick. Can't even enjoy it!
09:19:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Plume also had repeats
09:19:29 <LindaG> Jake, yeah just fun trying to catch it
09:19:33 <Plug Nickel> ~8 minutes
09:21:29 <LindaG> Up
09:22:05 <Plug Nickel> Still going
09:23:06 <Plug Nickel> !!
09:23:44 <LindaG> 11 min!
09:23:53 <LindaG> Pause
09:24:46 <LindaG> I wonder if there was a second in there
09:30:11 <Plug Nickel> Need boots on the ground
09:31:25 <LindaG> Kitt was there
09:32:08 <LindaG> Daisy time again
09:32:10 <ynpvisitor50> she was at 'beehive
09:33:00 <LindaG> Maybe arty
09:34:38 <LindaG> I say yes to arty
09:35:45 <Dave from B™> Dean has it at 928
09:36:07 <LindaG> Ok
09:36:17 <LindaG> I'll remove mine
09:36:47 <Dave from B™> Bbev SB report also posted
09:38:14 <LindaG> OF
09:38:32 <LindaG> ON static
09:39:09 <LindaG> Static 10:37
09:40:57 <LindaG> OF looks like a lightening bolt on static
09:41:50 <ynpvisitor39> I guess the sun is over the yardarm somewhere? :)
09:42:50 <LindaG> Bulger
09:43:25 <LindaG> Momentary bulger
09:48:49 <LindaG> Daisy
09:49:44 <LindaG> Well it's a two daisy morning
09:49:51 <LindaG> Hi kent
09:51:39 <Kent> Hay Lindag
09:51:47 <Kent> or Hey :)
09:51:58 <LindaG>
09:54:18 <LindaG> Kevin gets beehive today...maybe
09:57:02 <Dave from B™> BH hasn't been as consistent the past week
09:57:32 <Dave from B™> It should be within 150 minutes
09:57:53 <LindaG> Getting ready for winter 😊
09:58:15 <Kent> Bite your tongue!
09:58:21 <Kent> :)
09:58:28 <LindaG> Lol
09:58:51 <Kent> Aurum has had a wonderful summer
09:59:31 <LindaG> Sure has, ita great on this cam
10:00:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. Got the cam on the first try!
10:01:23 <LindaG> Congrats! Enjoy. There was an NG earlier
10:01:51 <LindaG> Bye everyone
10:02:12 <Kent> Computer/Cam question I am honestly a total Sgt. Shultz on this.
10:02:21 <Kent> Cam fixed. Regardless of the position and degree of zoom features are always in the exact same place as to coordinates from the cam?
10:02:54 <Kent> Would it be possible to have a “Layer” tab on chat with some sort of overlay that could pop up on the current image with the sputs named or numbered
10:04:02 <Kent> I'll go was breakfast dishes now.
10:04:12 <Jake> yes, it would be a lot easier to accomplish if the settings of the camera are known. angle and zoom level
10:04:53 <Jake> otherwise, an image classifier could be trained to identify features but that's a lot more work
10:05:20 <Jake> a good project for someone though! especially if the cam isn't going to move back to the tree
10:05:26 <ynpvisitor...> Stuff below Grand pretty much a mystery. Would be fun to pick them out. Also major sputs for people not familiar with the UGB
10:05:54 <Jake> below Grand means between Grand and cam?
10:06:44 <ynpvisitor...> Grotto area is a black hole for me
10:08:11 <Kevin L™🌵> You would probably have to use the same preset. Once you tweak it the name would be gone.
10:12:09 <ynpvisitor...> Eric, come home and splain this me.
10:12:35 <ynpvisitor...> I was th
10:13:02 <ynpvisitor...> I was thinking a layer unconnected to the image
10:14:09 <Jake> think of the cam as the center of a compass. Beehive is due east. Castle is due North. If a computer knows that the cam is facing North, it can make an image to overlay on the stream that has the word "Castle" in the center
10:15:37 <ynpvisitor...> So the overlay would have to be image specific. One linked to absolute coordinates would not work for all cam positions?
10:16:07 <Jake> if the computer doesn't know which way the cam is facing, because that data is not available, then an algorithm would need to be written to analyze the image to compare it to known images to find which way the cam is facing
10:16:48 <Jake> absolute coordinates would work for all cam positions. would have to do some calculations using spherical geometry
10:17:18 <Jake> luckily, Copernicus and some other people worked all of that out ;)
10:17:33 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks Jake. I will give this some thought and see if I can get a handle on it. My mind works, but only on occasion.
10:18:03 <Jake> most tend to think of geometry being on a flat plane. two coordinates, x and y, describe position
10:19:57 <Jake> but the cam is a the center of a sphere. to describe position, you need 3 coordinates: radius (ie distance to geyser), angle (ie N S E W), angle up/down (called azimuth, I think)
10:21:25 <ynpvisitor...> I took P & S geometry but over a half century ago which is scary. I have a thought experiment to perform.
10:22:19 <ynpvisitor...> I will get back to you on this. Thanks
10:32:36 <ynpvisitor...> OK, what I am thinking of is a pop-up layer on chat unconnected to the current image. It would be like having little dots or numbers on the cam dome itself.
10:32:57 <ynpvisitor...> Wouldn’t these correspond to the correct location of any spot regardless of cam position of zoom level?
10:33:18 <Kevin L™🌵> They should
10:33:39 <ynpvisitor...> I'll go wash dishes now.
10:33:53 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:33:53 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:33:54 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:33:54 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:33:54 <Kevin L™🌵> .

10:33:56 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:33:56 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:34:21 <Joe1> Nice BEE
10:34:22 <Kevin L™🌵> BH ie
10:34:28 <Dave from B™> I didn't even see BHI post on GT
10:35:22 <ynpvisitor...> GO KIT - Sorry Graham :)
10:35:57 <Rice> Look a frozen Bee
10:36:55 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
10:43:52 <LindaGt> Super bummer I missed bee
10:44:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Half a Bee
10:45:40 <GO SOMETHING> so SB had a shorter duration eruption than some .. maybe we will get a quick refill too
10:47:47 <GO SOMETHING> Craig picked the wrong time to go to Ftn ... should have been at Artie
10:48:06 <LindaGt> Arty looked nice
10:49:14 <GO SOMETHING> Craig might have seen the steam cloud
10:57:32 <ynpvisitor110> no line at West Gate.
10:57:47 <ynpvisitor110> everyone is going to come next week
11:03:39 <ynpvisitor110> cool, Craig must have gotten a ride up Lone Star
11:07:38 <Dave from B™> He has an e bike
11:08:48 <ynpvisitor110> really, his rides are all with an E bike?
11:09:03 <ynpvisitor...> I wonder if battery scooters are legal in the park?
11:09:25 <Dave from B™> e aided still lots of pedal power involved
11:10:11 <ynpvisitor110> nice to have the E when you need it
11:10:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Lone Star trail is pretty flat.
11:10:57 <ynpvisitor110> is there talk now of moving the cam back???
11:11:04 <Dave from B™> He's lost 30# this year so there is work involved
11:11:11 <Kevin L™🌵> No
11:11:20 <ynpvisitor110> oh, too bad
11:11:23 <Cooper> In my science class, I finished everything, so he told me I could whatever
11:11:26 <Cooper> Hi Everyone
11:11:35 <Cooper> OF ie
11:11:41 <Cooper> I see Bee went!
11:11:47 <Cooper> Was it on Cam?
11:11:49 <Kevin L™🌵> OF ie
11:11:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Sort of
11:12:07 <ynpvisitor...> I think the tree cam infrastructure was removed.
11:12:20 <Cooper> so there was a snippet at usual.
11:12:56 <Kevin L™🌵> About half in 3 acts.
11:13:22 <Cooper> blah
11:13:27 <ynpvisitor110> they could easily install a pole and put it back in same area as before
11:13:41 <Cooper> NPS said that they orderd the new radio on the 19th
11:13:47 <Cooper> ordered*
11:13:58 <ynpvisitor110> of August?
11:14:42 <Cooper> yes
11:14:47 <Cooper> on their web-site
11:15:00 <ynpvisitor110> it will be weeks then
11:15:52 <ynpvisitor110> and it won't change anything
11:16:31 <Cooper> that is likely
11:16:37 <ynpvisitor...> I wish the problem was understood
11:17:03 <ynpvisitor110> some gazers think it will never work with a radio feed
11:17:13 <GO SOMETHING> i am glad we are so optmistic here
11:17:19 <ynpvisitor110> and since the Inn cannot be hard wired, it is destined to fail
11:17:44 <ynpvisitor110> well it would be good to plan before winter to get a working cam
11:18:10 <Cooper> I would like that
11:18:20 <Cooper> otherwise we have no chance
11:18:38 <ynpvisitor110> and GS, they were not being pessimistic, the said they were being realistic
11:19:34 <GO SOMETHING> this sounds pessimistic to me 11:15:52 ‹ynpvisitor110› and it won't change anything
11:20:10 <Dave from B™> there won't be a pole installed anywhere in UGB. What about putting it on VEC?
11:21:02 <GO SOMETHING> or a drone cam?
11:21:34 <GO SOMETHING> i dont think theres a good sight line for OF and down basin from the VEC
11:21:57 <Cooper> Me Neither, and the GH View is not ass Great
11:22:13 <GO SOMETHING> the likly permanent mount place is under the eaves at the entrance to OF Lodge registration
11:22:22 <Dave from B™> So, someone needs to sneak into the Inn in the middle of the night and install some wires?:)
11:22:41 <Cooper> Maybe Craig?
11:22:57 <Dave from B™> GS, I think Lodge is too far away from downbasin
11:23:35 <GO SOMETHING> no, not much further than the old streaming cam - agree its a bt further
11:26:46 <ynpvisitor...> Could satellite Internet be an option. No idea how much bandwidth is required for a cam. Would require a little dish on top of the Inn.
11:27:10 <ynpvisitor110> Satellite would be worse than radio
11:27:19 <ynpvisitor...> :(
11:27:21 <ynpvisitor110> It needs to be hard wired
11:28:04 <Cooper> is it not?
11:28:07 <GO SOMETHING> Satellite dish wouldnt like snow ... but it can certainly send that type of data
11:28:58 <Cooper> get it an umbrella:lol:
11:29:26 <ynpvisitor...> We need a fiber cable to the UGB. I know, this is not profound.
11:29:58 <GO SOMETHING> would that help without direct wire?
11:30:01 <ynpvisitor110> cooper, the Inn cannot be hard wired
11:30:02 <Dave from B™> Kent, now you're really dreaming!
11:30:08 <ynpvisitor110> that is why we are dealing with radios
11:30:08 <GO SOMETHING> wire/fiber
11:30:47 <GO SOMETHING> the radio is to get it off the roof down to the ground ... fibre or copper wouldnt make a differecne
11:31:18 <GO SOMETHING> would it? or have we just switched topic to general needs .... like wifi everywhere?
11:32:10 <Dave from B™> I think we switched topcs
11:32:59 <GO SOMETHING> i am slow to catch on Dave :)
11:33:32 <Dave from B™> Must have gotten hit by a hockey puck at some point?:)
11:33:43 <GO SOMETHING> the rocks at SB did it
11:34:10 <Dave from B™> Shhh.don't tell anyone!
11:34:33 <Cooper> Dave has deer, Graham has Hockey Pucks
11:34:41 <Cooper> I have baseball bats
11:34:59 <Dave from B™> baseballs don't like me, either
11:35:24 <ynpvisitor...> SB did leave a very nice seismo trace this time. I am told trace has noting to do with the quality of the eruption though.
11:37:09 <Cooper> That was a nice NG this morning, minor, but nice
11:42:14 <ynpvisitor110> big trace seems to go along with bigger, stronger STEAM phase
11:43:44 <Cooper> Hi CLoud
11:43:48 <Cooper> Hey Kat
11:45:29 <Kat> Cooper, Just an FYI - the NPS update was posted on the 19th. An e-mail told the camops that the radio vendor is waiting on payment then will ship. Hopefully that won't take too long.
11:45:43 <ynpvisitor92> YVO Steamboat temp chart is interesting
11:46:21 <ynpvisitor92> no big spike from Steamboat for the eruption
11:46:47 <Cooper> TIme to go
11:46:50 <Cooper> Thanks Kat
11:46:53 <Kat> Bye
11:49:46 <Dave from B™> Payments from the gov't ccan take awhile
11:50:09 <Kat1> It's from Yellowstone Forever.
11:50:25 <Kat1> Not sure how long that can take.
11:56:17 <ynpvisitor85> Daisy ie
12:55:25 <Cooper> Omn Omn Nom, Lunch
12:57:52 <Cooper> Hmm. Vault Note is interesting
13:16:17 <Cooper> Tornado Warning North of Boston
13:17:08 <Cooper> and time for next class, math, bbl
14:19:12 <ynpvisitor56> Is that snow?
14:19:32 <ynpvisitor56> I guess not at 82 deg.
14:25:11 <ynpvisitor38> Wow, 34 F this morning to 82 F now.
15:17:05 <Kevin L™🌵> G r a n d
15:23:20 <Kevin L™🌵> How about GO CAM?
15:23:41 <GO CHURN> i am playing the odds
15:24:10 <Kevin L™🌵> IN that case GO GIANTESS.
15:24:13 <GO CHURN> did Betty make it through Death Valley?
15:24:23 <GO CHURN> i am playing the odds still
15:24:38 <GO CHURN> maybe we will get a Vault series
15:25:16 <GO CAM (kent)> Is Micah at the Inn. I seem to remember he is doing something dif this summer.
15:25:37 <GO CHURN> he is driving busses from OF
15:25:49 <GO CHURN> he got his CDL so can drive the big ones too
15:25:55 <Kent> Thanks G
15:26:10 <GO CHURN> i gather he is enjoying it ..... but I guess it has its bad days too
15:26:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Haven't heard from Betty for a couple of days.
15:26:41 <Kent> This time of year DV lives up to its name
15:26:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Right. Now the cam works. :P
15:27:48 <Kent> :) OK, so I am childish!
15:29:51 <GO CHURN> are you going to a class Kent or just hanging out this weekend?
15:30:04 <Kent> If I'm carrying a fishing pole am I legal anywhere in the backcountry?
15:30:17 <GO CHURN> if you have a license
15:30:41 <Kent> My class was cancelled so I am at the Inn for three nights. Happy Happy
15:30:41 <GO CHURN> and probably need to be near a river or lake
15:31:03 <GO CHURN> oh nice ..... going to waste any time at SB?
15:31:15 <GO CHURN> nice to be at Inn .. not so nice about class
15:31:42 <Kent> Norris, but not SB specifically. I don't want to jinks other people.
15:32:03 <GO CHURN> if it erupts while you are at Norris you can hear it fine
15:32:43 <Kent> Something strange with the class but since it is The Forevers I won't ask. They have enough problems.
15:33:41 <GO CHURN> not enough people signed up?
15:36:05 <Kent> "Yellowstone Restored" I think problems in addition to # of people but don't know. I chatted up the ranch people the first of the month and all was fine.
15:37:06 <Dave from B™> Kent, if you're fishing, you need to be near fishable water:)
15:37:28 <Dave from B™> oops...sorry, Graham...didn't see your response
15:37:52 <GO CHURN> or youcan say the bear chased you wherever you are
15:38:23 <GO CHURN> so how many cam ops are headed to the park or in the park? at least 4
15:38:48 <GO CHURN> Craig Tom Kent and I
15:39:19 <Kent> Cam should probably be left pointed at The Geyser until after Labor Day.
15:39:30 <GO CHURN> must be the guys gone wild trip
15:39:32 <ynpvisitor84> but what will happen if the non-operable cam has no operator?
15:39:45 <Kent> :) :)
15:39:48 <GO CHURN> all my shifts are covered ... thank you ops
15:40:13 <GO CHURN> i will have the flashlight to light up Giantess when it erupts
15:40:33 <GO CHURN> and one for Craig too
15:42:38 <Kent> I went out to Dead Savage last trip and 17 people told me I was going to hell. DS is right next to the crick. I was actually looking for the Japanese bridge.
15:44:06 <Kat> I covered Tom's Saturday and Craig's Saturday this week! :)
15:44:31 <Dave from B™> I wish I knew what you were talking about, Kent:)
15:46:16 <Kent> I think TSB4 mentions Dead Savage. I'll check. Lee has a great little article on the kids from the internment camp building the bridge.
15:47:52 <Dave from B™> The Heart Mtn internment camp?
15:48:46 <Kent> I think so. Old men from California came back for a reunion and Lee wrote it up.
15:49:40 <Dave from B™> A quick google of Dead Savage Yellowstone brought up all kinds of grisly events
15:50:37 <Kent> This one was an employee going hot-potting jumped in the wrong pool. Nasty.
15:56:19 <Kent> DIY page 15 has the story
15:59:07 <Kevin L™🌵> It is all yours Graham but good luck in getting it. :P
15:59:36 <GO CHURN> yeah, static cam it is for OF
15:59:56 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kent. I'll take a peek tonight
16:00:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I got one OF today.
16:04:40 <GO CHURN> of
16:10:29 <Cooper> Afternoon Everyone
16:12:11 <GO CHURN> isntit supposed to go from Recovering to Up?
16:13:18 <Dave from B™> It was a Faulty Recovery
16:13:40 <ynpvisitor84> is like the guy in Monty Python who says he's not dead yet, then they club him
16:13:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Capricorn 1 recovery?
16:14:12 <GO CHURN> woohoo
16:14:14 <GO CHURN> up
16:15:12 <ynpvisitor84>
16:21:10 <Kent> old, sick and funny :)
16:22:03 <Dave from B™> You could be talking about any number of people:)
16:22:34 <Kent> I don't know that I am funny
16:22:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Me included.
16:23:11 <Kent> I guess two out of three isn't bad
16:29:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Kill the camwa....
16:29:16 <GO CHURN> i missed 30s of Up time there
16:31:34 <Dave from B™> If your wife thinks you're funny; that's all that matters
16:32:24 <GO CHURN> Glacier has a new webcam, maybe we should watch it instead
16:32:52 <Dave from B™> Is it a streaming cam?
16:33:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably more movement from a glacier...
16:33:37 <Kevin L™🌵> My favorite train cam has also been out now for over a month. :P
16:34:09 <GO CHURN> probably not Dave, like this one
16:40:42 <GO CHURN> moving steam
16:41:20 <GO CHURN> just missed Aurum too
16:44:52 <GO CHURN> i cant decide if this is an Onion post or not: Trump calls off Denmark trip after its leader declines to sell him Greenland
16:45:08 <GO CHURN> its on Washington post ... they must have been hacked
16:48:25 <Cooper> Bulger
16:50:23 <GO CHURN> stayed up long enogh to see its a major
16:52:23 <ynpvisitor40> did we miss Daisy?
16:52:42 <GO CHURN> i hope so
16:52:51 <ynpvisitor40> why is that?
16:53:28 <GO CHURN> or its gone way long
16:53:56 <ynpvisitor40> looks like steam back there
16:55:06 <ynpvisitor40> it went 2 hr 45 on Aug 18
16:58:05 <GO CHURN> thats ghe one with the 1h51m interval before it.......i suspect the earlier time was wrong
17:01:36 <Cooper> Graham, are you heading back into YNP this year?
17:01:48 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Sounds like my wife has had a tough afternoon. She says she is thirsty. Have a good evneing everyone!
17:01:55 <GO CHURN> in 10 days i wil be there
17:02:00 <Cooper> Bye Dave
17:02:02 <Cooper> Nice Graham
17:02:14 <GO CHURN> bye Dave, enjoy the wine
17:02:42 <Dave from B™> BTW, my wife also says we need a name for our new, I will take any suggestions that don't have deer in them
17:02:44 <GO CHURN> i will be there thru 9 Sept
17:02:45 <Cooper> So Graham, where are you staying?
17:03:31 <Cooper> I can not wait till next summer.
17:03:57 <Cooper> Wow is R-Side?
17:05:28 <Cooper> How**
17:05:31 <Cooper> not Wow
17:06:04 <Cooper> OT
17:07:19 <GO CHURN> Olf Faithful Lodge Cabins
17:08:04 <Cooper> Nice
17:48:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Gee. OF streaming!
17:53:03 <Cooper> Lion??
17:53:24 <Michael> Yes, late in the eruption.
17:53:27 <Michael> Good catch.
17:53:28 <Cooper> near end
17:53:28 <GO CHURN> good catch
17:53:48 <GO CHURN> lc too
17:54:04 <Cooper> thx
18:15:45 <ynpvisitor82> Bulger
18:19:23 <Cooper> :daisy:
18:22:00 <Cooper> oh, hey Kat
18:26:06 <Cooper> Castle
18:26:18 <Cooper> Exact time: 18:26
18:26:19 <ynpvisitor87> :castle:
18:37:27 <Cooper> very nice Castle
18:43:47 <Cooper> Nice Steam Phase
18:46:37 <LindaG> Nice lighting on castle
18:49:12 <LindaG> Hi all
18:49:35 <Cooper> Hello Linda Hello
18:49:37 <LindaG> Looks cool backlit
18:49:48 <LindaG> Cooper, hi

18:59:29 <Cooper> wb
18:59:38 <Michael> what did I miss?
19:00:43 <Cooper> Lion
19:00:50 <Cooper> no you did not, besides castle
19:01:13 <LindaG> Yay
19:01:36 <Cooper> lc too
19:06:00 <Michael> Go Giantess. Please?
19:06:15 <Cooper> there was an interesting Vault note earlier
19:06:38 <Cooper> I wonder whether that was a small push with higher water levels
19:20:42 <Cooper> of
19:30:23 <ynpvisitor12> Sprinkler ie
19:37:04 <GO CHURN> ooh 40min Ftn duration
19:37:43 <GO CHURN> i hope someone goes out tonight
19:38:02 <ynpvisitor12> Go Morning!
19:38:08 <Cooper> *Cough* Craig *Cough*
19:38:34 <GO CHURN> William was at last one with Craig, Dean, Kitt
19:39:03 <GO CHURN> will be after midnight, Tara may try too
19:39:07 <Michael> Moon should be up in time.
20:03:54 <GO CHURN> cam is up and down, i am quitting. enjoy Lion Daisy Grand
20:04:08 <GO CHURN> at least we had a bit of up-time this evening for Castle and Lion
20:04:15 <GO CHURN> goodnight
20:04:19 <Cooper> Bye Graham, see you later. thx for driving
20:04:26 <GO CHURN> and GO MORNING
20:04:35 <Michael> Goodnight, Graham.
20:09:44 <Cooper> Lion
20:21:45 <Michael> Daisy
20:21:57 <Cooper> yup
20:38:27 <ynpvisitor37> Is Mike G in the basin?
20:39:13 <Michael> Nope. I'll fix that.
20:43:55 <Cooper> test.
20:44:04 <Cooper> .
20:44:15 <Cooper> test again
20:44:17 <Cooper> ahah
20:44:24 <Cooper> there I go
20:55:58 <Cooper> OF Window
20:58:25 <Michael> Not sure if there's a cam driver after Graham left.
21:04:59 <Cooper> Night All
21:05:22 <Michael> Goodnight.
