06:09:00 <Cooper> Huh still no SB
06:23:45 <ynpvisitor29> Your magic secret method fail you?
06:23:56 <Cooper> Nope
06:24:01 <Cooper> not yet anyway
06:24:18 <Cooper> but the Double Secret Noodle is nearing the end the window
06:24:31 <Rice> It will got today.
06:24:51 <Cooper> If it does not go by 2pm then I failed
06:25:19 <Cooper> and if it goes by noon I will be happy
06:27:04 <ynpvisitor6> what is your prediction + or -
06:27:32 <Cooper> which one? I have 2 different methods and then an average
06:28:15 <ynpvisitor6> Oh make many then can't miss :)
06:28:20 <Cooper> Well... for most I keep them at +/- 6 Hours, but I could put it down at +/- 3 Hours
06:28:40 <Cooper> Most of the predicts are basically the same-ish
06:28:57 <Cooper> from like 6 to 12am is most likely.
06:31:34 <ynpvisitor53> do you mean 12p
06:31:40 <Cooper> oops
06:31:42 <Cooper> yes
06:32:36 <ynpvisitor53> would be a long window otherwise :)
06:32:45 <Cooper> :p
06:33:19 <Cooper> I want it to go at 1015, 915, or 1151
06:33:27 <Cooper> then I would get 0 Minutes
06:36:55 <Cooper> Time for me to leave
06:36:57 <Cooper> bbl
06:46:04 <Kat> Well, Happy Monday...another Monday full of cam frustration! :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:
06:47:22 <Kat> Really????
06:48:54 <ynpvisitor83> This is really getting old for sure.
06:59:14 <Kat> It is old...I'm going to the pool for awhile! :)
07:00:16 <Joe> Here is a screenshot (the only) of this mornings Grand https://i.imgur.com/ccdnC4C.png
07:03:41 <Kat> This is all so sad Joe! I e-mailed Carolyn this AM....something needs to happen!
07:06:49 <Joe1> I e-mailed DaveK asking if he could get the radio shop to expedite the radio link change out
07:12:19 <Kat> Thanks, we have lost a lot of people on this site! Thankfully, right now there many in basin gazers!
07:22:34 <KittyM> Thanks for doing that, Joe. I hope it works! The cam seems to be getting worse.
07:23:32 <Rice> I would think the Cam is very low on the NPS Priorty List of things to get done.
07:24:05 <Rice> It is important too a small group of us, but to the vast magority of Yellowstone Visitors have no idea it exists.
07:24:41 <Rice> I was one of those that didnt know about it for years.
07:25:27 <Joe1> YW, I could not gain control of the cam from 0231 on, until Kat managed to at 6ish
07:27:37 <Joe1> Many visitors knew of it when they could stand on the boardwalk and wave at friends and family on camera, but that is gone now, forever
07:29:37 <Joe1> The camera had a personal aspect to it then, now [u]not[/u]
07:30:58 <Joe1> OF static
07:33:13 <Joe1> ?? SB start on seismo, ?? will have to wait for next seismo update
07:37:10 <Joe1> nope just noise at SB
07:38:08 <Joe1> noise at Norris**
07:54:51 <I'm Bromine> Geez, touchy
08:20:42 <Cooper> Hi again everyone
08:21:14 <Cooper> Ok... SB, I am begging you to go in my window.
08:21:55 <ynpvisitor17> Your window is already past!
08:22:04 <JarnoO> morning all
08:22:09 <Cooper> 17, nope
08:22:13 <Cooper> Hi Jarno
08:22:25 <Cooper> Loris Prediction, the Double Secret Noodle Predict has past
08:22:25 <ynpvisitor17> You keep changing your predictions
08:22:28 <Cooper> mine has not
08:22:59 <JarnoO> FYI: solely based on Steamboat's E data, Steamboat tried to go @ 2222:38 yesterday.
08:22:59 <Cooper> 17, no, the Original Predicts for this Eruption was made 3 days ago
08:23:31 <Cooper> but 17, I do come up with new predicts as I discover new methods.
08:23:56 <ynpvisitor17> Nothing on seismo at that time Jarno
08:23:57 <Cooper> Jarno... you have a predict for SB
08:24:22 <JarnoO> no, #17, that's because it tried solely based on E data
08:24:48 <JarnoO> emphasis on 'tried' :)
08:24:54 <Cooper> haha
08:25:09 <Cooper> my predict based on the E Data was at 1118 pm
08:25:23 <Cooper> but that window past... so we are once again = with E Data Predicts
08:26:03 <Cooper> No my 3 methods left have it at 1015: for method one, 915: for method 2, and 1151:for method 3
08:26:17 <Cooper> Method 2 and 3 are new
08:26:31 <ynpvisitor17> If you have enough predicts, one will be right no doubt. Just stupid
08:26:32 <JarnoO> the spike at that time reached 59.5°C, or 139.1°F. The most recent eruption reached just above 60°C according to E data
08:27:00 <Cooper> 17, why is that stupid?....
08:27:11 <Cooper> in order to determine which method works the best...
08:27:21 <ynpvisitor17> Go to school and learn something
08:27:24 <Cooper> I am going top put them all against eachother using the same eruption
08:27:31 <Cooper> 17, I am in school
08:27:34 <Cooper> right now
08:27:40 <Cooper> sitting in my TA Class
08:28:26 <Cooper> and BTW.... I have predicted SB Very well for 3 so far with method 1, 54 mins ish, 120 mins ish , and 180 mins ish.
08:28:29 <ynpvisitor17> What kind of school allows a kid to be on his computer all day?
08:28:29 <JarnoO> either way, as far as my prediction is concerned, today @ 1434±12h or so. Am hoping I can narrow that window down as much as possible, but for now I feel comfortable with the 24h window
08:28:35 <JarnoO> Dilpidated ie?
08:28:44 <JarnoO> Dilapidated*
08:29:06 <Cooper> 17, a school that....
08:29:35 <Cooper> allows kids to get on their computer and do research when they are done with all of their work
08:30:06 <Cooper> and right now I am in my 1st Elective... Teacher Assistant,,, and unless Mr. Ortiz needs something I do SB Research
08:30:19 <ynpvisitor17> You tell them this is research?
08:30:30 <Cooper> I am multitasking
08:30:44 <Cooper> right now I am working on Data for patterns
08:31:13 <ynpvisitor17> In what world is an 8th grader a TA? The wheels are off the bus
08:31:24 <Cooper> They are not
08:31:36 <Cooper> I liked my 7th Grade Science Teacher.....
08:31:55 <Cooper> So I signed up to help him in TA...
08:32:23 <ynpvisitor17> There’s not some 5th grader that you could be assisting? How is being on a computer, by YOURSELF, assisting anyone?
08:32:36 <ynpvisitor17> Sounds like a joke to me
08:32:40 <Cooper> I help him by Grading some of the 7th graders homework.... organizing things.... and helping him get out supplies
08:32:45 <Cooper> 17, I help the teacher
08:32:48 <Cooper> not the kids
08:33:01 <ynpvisitor17> Total joke
08:33:03 <Cooper> and right now Mr. Ortiz does not need anything right now.
08:33:16 <Cooper> 17, please do not call what I like to do a joke.
08:33:46 <ynpvisitor77> This is a place to talk about geysers.
08:33:56 <Cooper> 77, my point exactly
08:34:06 <ynpvisitor77> Everyone please restrict yourselves to that.
08:34:21 <Cooper> I was trying to talk about SB... now how did we end up talking about school.. IDK
08:35:25 <JarnoO> anyway, Oblong @ 0824 ie
08:35:28 <Cooper> but yes... how long do you all think the SB Series will continue?
08:36:38 <JarnoO> morning Jimbo
08:36:43 <I'm Bond, coval> Didn't work :(
08:36:47 <Cooper> Hi Jimpo
08:36:53 <Cooper> Jimbo**
08:37:44 <Covalent Bond> Better, but it shortening it is regretful :(
08:38:19 <JarnoO> ah, now I get it...
08:38:27 <JarnoO> I feel stupid
08:38:30 <Covalent Bond> Apologies to my elemental friend
08:38:36 <Cooper> Haha
08:39:37 <I'm Bromine> I like it
08:40:03 <Covalent Bond> Radio week? I am hopeful:thumbsup::thumbsup:
08:40:22 <Cooper> I doubt.. they are not that nice
08:41:29 <Covalent Bond> They really are nice, just institutional
08:42:10 <Katie> Happy Mondy
08:42:30 <JarnoO> morning Katie
08:42:36 <Katie> ...and that about sums it up. Can't type Monday on a Monday
08:42:37 <Cooper> Hi Katie
08:42:47 <Covalent Bond> Steamboat Monday?
08:43:00 <Cooper> yes SB today
08:43:28 <Cooper> I can not wait till that spike on the Seismo
08:43:30 <I'm Bromine> Rdc yr nrgy cnsmptn skp vwls
08:43:43 <Covalent Bond> Close enough. DfB would give you full points.
08:44:23 <Cooper> haha... he could skip vowels
08:45:36 <Cooper> Is it odd that I have my predicts for this cycle taped to my Computer?
08:51:54 <Cooper> Dome ie
08:52:27 <Covalent Bond> I think that is more Dome than just the temp and high humidity
08:59:30 <Cooper> time for me to go to my next class
08:59:35 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT
08:59:37 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT
08:59:41 <Cooper> AND GO STEAMBOAT
09:07:25 <ynpvisitor113> odd colors
09:08:08 <JarnoO> seems like it's raining a bit
09:16:37 <JarnoO> Dilapidated seems to be doing something
09:16:46 <JarnoO> or not
09:16:52 <JarnoO> maybe it's trying
09:21:34 <ynpvisitor111> The Cooper cam is working
09:23:42 <ynpvisitor111> well it was
09:25:32 <Covalent Bond> Evening shift last night on the cam way my worst ever. I don't have much hair and now I have even less.
09:26:06 <Covalent Bond> I hope Dave's new radio does the trick.
09:26:43 <ynpvisitor66> Kent, I sure hope it will !!
09:32:29 <Covalent Bond> I do one relatively short shift a week. I have serious sympathy for those who do multiple long shifts. It is selfless service.
10:03:26 <I'm Bromine> Well, I'm going to switch to fish watching. I did see what Solstice Geyser looks like, though.
10:08:29 <Cooper> OK SB, go in 7 Minutes
10:09:21 <Cooper> any bets on whether SB goes by Non?
10:10:00 <Cooper> Noon** not non
10:10:15 <Dave from B™> SB will not go before noon
10:10:29 <Cooper> ok
10:10:37 <Cooper> Hi Dave, been a while
10:10:45 <Dave from B™> That's my bet...doesn't mean it's right
10:10:53 <Cooper> obviously
10:10:55 <Dave from B™> Yep...just returned from vacation yesterday
10:11:07 <Cooper> I say some time between now and 5 pm
10:12:24 <Cooper> I have until 551 PM to be in Window
10:12:26 <ynpvisitor12> You could not have been on vacation, you left the minnow home.
10:13:22 <Cooper> but c'mon SB go right now....
10:13:27 <Cooper> and then Graham might get it
10:15:08 <Katie> Any bets on when I'll be able to log in?
10:15:21 <Cooper> uhm.. not by noon
10:21:57 <ynpvisitor12> I heard Dave took the radio to Salt Lake, so maybe you will be able to log in in a week or three.
10:24:55 <LindaG> Good morning!
10:25:22 <Cooper> Hi Linda
10:25:39 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
10:26:24 <Cooper> how is your day going?
10:26:59 <LindaG> It's going ok, how is your day going?
10:27:14 <Cooper> Terrible......
10:27:22 <Cooper> the suspense of SB is killing me!
10:27:29 <Cooper> but other than that OK
10:27:51 <Cooper> not a lot but a little bit of Thickness on the YNM Seismo
10:27:54 <Cooper> likely nothing
10:28:24 <LindaG> In due time 😃
10:28:53 <Cooper> haha
10:28:54 <Cooper> yup
10:28:57 <Cooper> just wish it was now
10:29:29 <LindaG> 😃 you and a few others I'm sure
10:29:40 <Cooper> haha
10:29:46 <Katie> got logged in - but before I could even gain control it went down again
10:30:06 <LindaG> Katie, baby steps
10:30:07 <Cooper> if only I could time travel... I could go back in time and predict every SB perfectly.
10:30:43 <LindaG> Wouldn't you want to go forward for that?
10:31:11 <Cooper> and then backaward
10:31:14 <Cooper> Hello GMK
10:31:20 <ynpvisitor12> He knows when they went so going back, he could 'predict' te next one.
10:31:54 <ynpvisitor12> I guess he never heard one should not do that.
10:31:55 <Cooper> exactly
10:32:03 <Cooper> meh
10:32:14 <Cooper> then I would win and SB would lose
10:32:34 <LindaG> But going forward he would know all the ones that had happened. Lol, but true he couldnt predict them. 🤪
10:32:52 <ynpvisitor12> You could change the entire world.
10:33:00 <Cooper> meh
10:33:05 <Cooper> I win and SB looses
10:33:10 <ynpvisitor72> SB lose? Do you even think before you write?
10:33:21 <LindaG> You would really have to do a lot of traveling haha
10:33:30 <Cooper> My point 72
10:33:38 <ynpvisitor12> You do not win by cheating.
10:33:50 <Cooper> I can never win.. I have gotten Stalemated with SB but not win
10:33:54 <ynpvisitor72> You have no point is my point
10:34:14 <Cooper> Nevermind then
10:34:41 <ynpvisitor72> If only you could stop this drivel
10:34:46 <LindaG> Ok so we are back t waiting 😊
10:35:12 <ynpvisitor12> Look at that beautiful weather.
10:35:38 <Dave from B™> Could you imagine if you knew when Sb was going to erupt and you only spent 15 minutes at Sb for each eruption. You would be a pop hero sensation!:)
10:35:59 <Dave from B™> People would trult care when I was headed to SB:D
10:36:03 <Dave from B™> Truly*
10:36:10 <Cooper> haha......
10:36:22 <Cooper> now a days anytime you head to SB they go away:p
10:37:07 <Dave from B™> Not quite like that but I do get ribbed a bit
10:37:19 <Cooper> :p
10:37:31 <ynpvisitor12> SB will go when Dave parks the minnow in the parking lot.
10:37:43 <ynpvisitor12> With out a cover
10:37:56 <Cooper> haha... so true
10:37:59 <LindaG> ynpvisitor12, 😃
10:38:12 <Cooper> Dave.. what is it about you that makes it easy to make jokes about?
10:38:30 <Katie> Dave is a good sport. :)
10:38:38 <LindaG> Cooper, hes a nice guy
10:38:42 <Kevin L™🌵> You back home Dave?
10:38:57 <Cooper> Yes GMK
10:39:01 <ynpvisitor12> Kevin is getting too old to kid
10:39:06 <Dave from B™> Yep...got home about 1 pm yesterday
10:39:16 <Cooper> who is Kevin.. I only know him by GMK
10:39:17 <Dave from B™> I loved the 100-105 temps :)
10:39:23 <Kevin L™🌵> How was the trip?
10:39:32 <Cooper> GMK=Great Might Kevin**
10:39:38 <Kevin L™🌵> We saved them for you.
10:39:53 <Dave from B™> Yep...if you can't laugh at yourself, you can never really be happy
10:40:03 <Cooper> haha
10:40:36 <LindaG> Come on cam
10:40:43 <Dave from B™> Trip was fun...Vegas is the only place you can walk 42 miles in 4 days and GAIN 5#....too many slushy drinks and food
10:41:15 <Dave from B™> Elton John concert was the best concert I have ever been to. 17000 plus fans...was loud
10:41:23 <ynpvisitor12> You are supposed to cash in all the chips, not eat them.
10:41:38 <Katie> I headed there this weekend for Eric Clapton concert.
10:41:47 <Dave from B™> haha. We held our own at gambling
10:42:01 <Dave from B™> NASCAR playoffs are in LV this weekend
10:42:38 <Kevin L™🌵> They do burnouts on the Strip this week.
10:44:04 <Dave from B™> That would be fun to see
10:46:04 <ynpvisitor12> More fun if they did a Blues Brother's ride through town. Got any old malls you do not need?
10:46:30 <ynpvisitor12> After Sunday, Jimmy is qualified for the job
10:46:41 <ynpvisitor12> and a few others
10:47:41 <Cooper> Haha... I am checking SB Seismo so much that I put a sticknote over it so I can not see it
10:47:43 <Cooper> and bbl
10:47:47 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT
10:48:19 <LindaG> Anyone watch the Nadal tennis mat h yesterday? It was amazing.
10:48:49 <ynpvisitor12> Don't you have home work, or some extra credit you could be doing?
10:49:10 <ynpvisitor12> Is that the one where the kid beat the old lady?
10:49:32 <LindaG> No that was women's, this was mens
10:49:47 <LindaG> This one the old man beat the kid
10:49:51 <ynpvisitor12> Did the kid beat the old man?
10:51:32 <ynpvisitor12> Never been a tennis fan. I guess it is good neck exercise though. If you set in the right place that is.
10:51:34 <LindaG> No Nadal won
10:52:28 <ynpvisitor12> It should be more popular then base ball as they do hit the ball more.
10:53:57 <ynpvisitor12> Is it worth hitting refresh?
10:54:08 <Katie> nope
10:58:38 <LindaG> ynpvisitor12, this match lasted 5 hours and NJ it was very very intense. Dont know many athletes that could last that long
10:59:09 <Kevin L™🌵> That is brutal
10:59:17 <LindaG> Dont know where NJ came from
10:59:41 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, they get a little break but not much
11:05:20 <ynpvisitor12> Sounds like the triple overtime hockey gam I saw way back when in a Stanley cup final. Poor goalie played a 2 game shutout and got beat in the 7th period.
11:06:22 <ynpvisitor12> That was when they played full periods in overtime, not the fast get it done game they have now. They were beagging for people to come in for free to buy stuff from the vendors that had to stay open.
11:06:45 <Dave from B™> That can still happen in the playoffs
11:07:42 <ynpvisitor12> They went to penalty type shots after the first overtime didn't they?
11:10:35 <Dave from B™> Regular season ties have a 5 minute overtime where they play a man short to open up the ice. If it is still tied, then a 3 person shootout
11:12:34 <ynpvisitor12> I guess they didn't change the rules for the playoffs.
11:13:20 <ynpvisitor12> Odd, I thought I had seen games with the change in the playoffs. I guess because they play in summer, I do not see may playoff games these days.
11:14:18 <ynpvisitor12> I hit refresh and had 2 seconds of movement. Time to go.
11:19:29 <LindaG> Oh it's one of those days, bbl
11:50:07 <Lori S> Ah. So much for Bee or Grand BBL
12:22:12 <ynpvisitor113> I have a picture of bee I look at.
12:22:20 <ynpvisitor113> http://www.panna.org/sites/default/files/styles/blog_lead_image/public/user1/bees-kid-drawing-300.png?itok=Vx6cjCgU
12:23:10 <Katie> I have never gained control today. 2 and a half hours into shift..
12:35:22 <ynpvisitor113> Don't worry, the pay is the same. I doubt you will get docked for missing of.
12:35:47 <Katie> Oh, it's been aimed at OF all day - I can't move it
12:37:58 <ynpvisitor76> Of ie static
12:42:15 <Dave from B™> Katie, if you would upgrade your computer from the Commodore 64K maybe it would work:D
12:43:41 <Katie> Dave from B™, I'll work on that.
12:45:02 <Dave from B™> Guess what? I googled it and they are coming back out into the market. A little more memory than the one in 1982!
12:52:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Well you did get it to move. Was it Dave's C64?
12:52:37 <Katie> Yup. That did the trick!
13:28:52 <ynpvisitor116> still no SB
13:29:32 <ynpvisitor116> maybe in the next few hours???
13:30:09 <ynpvisitor116> any bets?
13:33:12 <Dave from B™> Not based on anything factual, but I won't be surprised if it's tomorrow
13:34:51 <ynpvisitor116> yeah
13:35:00 <ynpvisitor116> it has been having pushes
13:35:05 <ynpvisitor116> but really I do not know
13:37:06 <GO DELTA> Sigh, only one SB for me this teip
13:37:40 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Graham
13:37:49 <ynpvisitor116> Sorry Graham
13:38:01 <Cooper> Yay... just finished my next SB method
13:38:12 <Cooper> I am calling it the Pool Noodle
13:39:03 <GO DELTA> Craig was still at SB when i left, but he will be heading home soon
13:40:27 <Dave from B™> soon as in today?
13:40:34 <GO DELTA> Good trip, wonderful weather a d good company most of the time. Weather not so good now
13:40:50 <GO DELTA> He said tomorrow....not going to break camp today
13:41:11 <GO DELTA> But if SB hasnt erupt.....he might be unable to leave it
13:42:01 <Dave from B™> That's been known to happen to Craig:)
13:43:16 <GO DELTA> He has been working the geysers hard
13:43:29 <Dave from B™> I flew over SLC area and there was a huge "Come home, Craig C sign viewable from 35,000 feet.
13:43:45 <GO DELTA> I think he tries to keep up with William who is 30? years younger
13:44:14 <Cooper> BTW... MY new predict puts SB at a 6D 11H and 12M Interval, or about 1346 Today
13:44:33 <GO DELTA> At keast today is a slow day at SB sitting on upper deck
13:44:50 <Cooper> was it looking good before you left Graham?
13:45:07 <GO DELTA> Zo in the n3xt seismo update?
13:45:27 <GO DELTA> I think it will go Wed
13:45:35 <Cooper> WED?
13:45:41 <Cooper> So it was not looking good then?
13:45:47 <Cooper> no CNVVSVV?
13:47:11 <Cooper> WHY Cooper? why did you do your math wrong!!!!!! I clearly can not multiply 1*24
13:47:23 <Cooper> I wrote down 20*** haha
13:47:36 <Cooper> that changes everything about my Data!
13:48:17 <Cooper> WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????????/
13:48:25 <Cooper> Oh... that was easy
13:48:46 <Cooper> thank you Google Spreadsheets for using equations:)
13:49:08 <GO DELTA> Its had good water colume but few eposodes of vertical. Last eruption it didnt have the strong water. Maybe its using up its energy without erupting now
13:49:28 <GO DELTA> Peeps wont be happy if they are still there on wed
13:49:35 <Cooper> haha
13:49:40 <Cooper> I hope it goes soon
13:50:05 <Cooper> that mess up bumbs my SB Pool Noodle Predict up to a 7d 1h and 26m Interval
13:50:14 <GO DELTA> Yeah . Ben is there teying to get his first this week
13:54:22 <Cooper> ok.... looks like the rest of my simple math is correct:p
13:54:48 <Cooper> Graham, did you leave a note on GT?
13:59:55 <GO DELTA> My notes are not posting. Mot much to say this morning
14:00:45 <Cooper> :thumbsdown:
14:00:51 <Cooper> bad GT
14:00:54 <Cooper> Bad SB
14:01:01 <GO DELTA> I have 156 entries that still say they need to sync, not including notes
14:01:09 <Cooper> WOW!!
14:02:04 <Kevin L™🌵> You did a good job dodging Betty.
14:02:33 <Cooper> Graham, you did not meet Betty?
14:03:04 <GO DELTA> Haha i think we were bith at Grand one time
14:03:27 <GO DELTA> I didnt see her at SB
14:03:35 <Kevin L™🌵> And Steamboat.
14:03:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe even Aurum
14:04:26 <GO DELTA> Not at the same Aurum, few peeps there
14:04:57 <GO DELTA> I spe t a lot of time at steerage.
14:05:08 <GO DELTA> Maybe she didnt come down?
14:05:39 <GO DELTA> Maybe next year
14:08:58 <Cooper> so Graham... you home? or at the Airport?
14:12:59 <GO DELTA> In Idaho Falls airport, wont be home toll 1am or later
14:13:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't get lost in there!
14:14:00 <GO DELTA> Thay have 3 gates, very confusing
14:14:15 <Cooper> belck Graham
14:14:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Great selection of food from a vending machine.
14:15:26 <GO DELTA> They do have a bar with food now
14:15:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Apple Beer on tap?
14:15:53 <GO DELTA> Gate 1 makes it easy..there is a jetbridge
14:16:13 <GO DELTA> 6 taps and multiple bottles
14:16:51 <GO DELTA> Short hop to SLC, then to IAD
14:18:30 <Dave from B™> I dare you to ask someone for directions to Gate 2, Graham
14:19:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I can remember when McCarran had 4 gates. And the gates were chain link.
14:19:47 <Cooper> bye everyone, bbl
14:19:51 <Cooper> GO SB
14:19:56 <Cooper> Have a safe flight Graham
14:36:31 <JarnoO> good soccer match, winning with 4-0 from Estonia
14:43:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't that like a 48-0 NFL game?
14:44:04 <JarnoO> wouldn't surprise me, but I have no idea
14:44:59 <Dave from B™> Almost but not quite Kevin
14:46:06 <Kevin L™🌵> BTW why do you have an overtime if you can still tie a game?
14:46:32 <JarnoO> very entertaining nonetheless, although not as much as the 4-2 win against Germany on Friday
14:47:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Is Estonia the country west of Russia?
14:47:37 <JarnoO> yes
14:47:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I think my neighbor's kid is over there right now.
14:48:14 <JarnoO> it's part of the Baltic States, the other two being Latvia and Lithuania
14:49:35 <Kevin L™🌵> He has sent some pictures from the area. He was by the ocean for a while.
14:50:26 <Dave from B™> Jarno, great victory over Germany last week
14:51:10 <JarnoO> it was. Only caught the second half, though, because I fell asleep...
14:56:05 <Dave from B™> Time to go sign papers at the bank. Have a great evening everyone!
14:56:53 <JarnoO> night Dave
15:01:45 <JarnoO> 1158 Steamboat NV to 75' and granding, sustained vertical of SV
15:21:01 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy watching the seismo, as at least that one is a mostly reliable live feed
15:21:23 <I'm Bromine> Steamboat will go at night again. Have a good evening, all.
15:30:45 <ynpvisitor79> about 3h until we match last steamboat interval
15:32:07 <ynpvisitor79> does anyone know if that logger data is off by an hour?
15:32:17 <ynpvisitor79> steamboat logger specifically
15:32:25 <ynpvisitor73> Time for everyone to update their predictions so they can say they were right :)
15:32:39 <ynpvisitor79> Trying to match up Tara's note about the super minor and that spike on the graph last night.
15:32:59 <ynpvisitor79> I predicted a day early...so mine is already wrong :-(
15:33:37 <ynpvisitor79> It would make sense if they logger data is an hour behind
15:52:56 <ynpvisitor88> OF 1552
16:01:34 <ynpvisitor73> artesmisia ie
16:01:52 <ynpvisitor73> artemisia*
16:06:10 <Cooper> so SB had false start at 1159
16:11:29 <Cooper> Hi Linda
16:11:35 <LindaG> Ah nice arty
16:11:42 <LindaG> LindaG,
16:11:48 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
16:11:57 <Cooper> are you saying hi to yourself????:p
16:12:10 <Cooper> so SB has very good water levels but is just not going
16:12:20 <LindaG> Missed you and got me lol
16:12:41 <LindaG> It will
16:13:00 <Cooper> Did the cam get Bee at 1426?
16:13:22 <LindaG> No idea
16:13:34 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
16:14:19 <ynpvisitor73> cam was left on OF for 95% of the time today :(
16:15:54 <LindaG> When I was on earlier it just wasnt up, it gets to be impossible to move it.
16:16:10 <Cooper> :(
16:16:41 <LindaG> When it gets like that it's a waste of time to try
16:16:50 <ynpvisitor105> It is working, did they fix it?
16:17:37 <ynpvisitor105> Nope.
16:17:39 <LindaG> I don't think so probably just less interference
16:19:52 <ynpvisitor73> the +camera is operating normaly, nothing has changed, no fix in sight
16:31:50 <Cooper> No I meant I was back
16:35:55 <ynpvisitor73> Covering first, second and shortstop, home plate is covered by static
16:36:10 <Cooper> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
16:55:57 <Cooper> :daisy:
17:17:48 <Cooper> Hi Emily
17:17:52 <Cooper> still in YNP?
17:18:00 <Emily> hi
17:18:03 <Emily> No I am home now
17:18:46 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
18:01:21 <Cooper> oh. looks like we are using the Bunsen burners again tomorrow to make Glass Straws out of Straight pieces of glass.
18:09:21 <Kevin L™🌵> No Aurums posted today. :(
18:09:31 <Cooper> Sorry GMK
18:09:54 <ynpvisitor67> No way to see them. I am sure there were a dozen or more.
18:10:23 <ynpvisitor67> Plentiful as eggs in a chicken house
18:10:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Nobody in the basin to post them
18:10:52 <Cooper> Oh GMK, would you like me to call someone on your behalf? :p
18:13:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Just nice to know it is still alive. I really don't think I will be seeing it this year.
18:14:05 <Emily> Hi kevin
18:14:07 <Cooper> you are not going to YNP?
18:14:16 <Kevin L™🌵> No
18:14:21 <Cooper> sorry
18:15:37 <Emily> I finally got to really appreciate aurum this year kevin
18:16:48 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a really fun geyser.
18:17:20 <Cooper> Couldn't you just wait for hours, or one of the things I like to do is wait the whole interval once
18:17:38 <Cooper> for Aurum?
18:18:19 <Kevin L™🌵> This year, yes. Last year the intervals were 5 to 38 hours if I remember correctly.
18:18:32 <Cooper> haha
18:18:37 <Cooper> that would be bad... 38 hours
18:18:48 <Cooper> but this summer I waited a whole interval
18:18:57 <Cooper> that was when it was nearly predictable
18:19:11 <ynpvisitor69> Castle
18:19:19 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
18:19:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Another problem is they don't like you to sit on the edge of the BW now and there really isn't a good bench for it.
18:20:08 <Cooper> I like to sit at Aurum
18:20:16 <Cooper> ...
18:20:23 <Cooper> blash did I really just type that
18:20:32 <Cooper> I mean I like to sit at Doublet while waiting for Aurum
18:21:01 <Cooper> so Kevin, maybe next year?
18:21:02 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish they would put a pullout with a bench there and at Oblong. A bench at Depression on the pullout would be great also.
18:21:14 <Cooper> that it would
18:21:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Doublet is really fun in the morning when nobody is walking.
18:21:45 <Cooper> haha.. I get stepped on alot:p
18:30:45 <Cooper> Castle not promising
18:31:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like one of those duds.
18:31:52 <Cooper> yup
18:36:00 <Cooper> .
18:36:01 <Cooper> .
18:36:01 <Cooper> .
18:36:04 <Cooper> grand
18:36:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice start.
18:44:59 <ynpvisitor73> 2nd
18:45:08 <Cooper> yayay
18:51:42 <Cooper> Hi Michael
18:52:02 <Michael> Hi Cooper.
19:01:35 <Cooper> Thx Lori!!!!!!!!!!!
19:01:41 <Cooper> I made a huge mistake
19:01:53 <Cooper> which proves I can not tell time
19:02:19 <Cooper> as I got the days right.. but I can not tell hours from the dats:p
19:02:30 <Cooper> which makes sense why SB erupted in none of my windows
19:03:00 <Cooper> Yikes Korben/Cooper, now I have to redo my predicts
19:03:07 <Cooper> based on the ACCURATE Data
19:06:09 <Cooper> anyone want my predicts now that I fixed my data?
19:07:35 <ynpvisitor73> Just keep changing it you will get it right, :) if you don't then blame someone else:)
19:07:37 <Cooper> oh those predicts are very interesting
19:08:20 <Cooper> 73, like I said. the Data I entered on my last eruption into my spreadsheet is wrong
19:08:28 <ynpvisitor112> Yeah. Cooper, please stop making predictions
19:08:44 <Cooper> I am not changing them. just revising based on new research
19:08:47 <ynpvisitor112> You always have an excuse
19:08:57 <Cooper> and the fact that I can not do math:p
19:09:39 <Cooper> 112, 73. you do not want all of my Data which worked on the last 3 eruptions because I did not mess up my math, then whatever... your loss
19:09:54 <Michael> My prediction already came and went. I'd guess it goes soon-ish.
19:10:27 <ynpvisitor47> OF ie on static!
19:10:48 <Cooper> Michael tell me this, what is wrong in my next math: 2 Days 12 Hours=2.12 Days
19:10:56 <Cooper> because that is what I did the last eruption
19:11:12 <Cooper> Michael do you want my predict that is based on Accurate Data?
19:11:26 <Sam> Forgot to change my name...it's been a while
19:11:31 <Cooper> Hi Sam, and Terry
19:11:40 <Sam> Hello.
19:11:54 <Sam> You're compiling research Cooper? Neat.
19:11:55 <Michael> Hi Sam and Terry.
19:11:58 <Terry> Hey Cooper
19:12:15 <Cooper> Sam, yes I have been working for the past few weeks on it.
19:12:37 <Sam> It's been a few weeks since I've last logged into the chat room.
19:12:57 <Sam> Not really worth watching the cam anymore since it's so unreliable nowadays
19:13:12 <Michael> Nothing has changed in that regard.
19:13:51 <Michael> Some days I engage in wishful thinking that I'll see an entire eruption of Grand as it happens.
19:14:05 <Sam> It really is a shame. You'd think the technicians would have a solution. It's been, what, 5-6 months?
19:14:06 <Cooper> These Arguments are the exact reason why I keep my Spreadsheets and methods to myself.
19:14:12 <ynpvisitor112> 1 prediction allowed per SB eruption
19:14:42 <Sam> Anyway, I'm a grouchy grump about the cam.
19:15:04 <Cooper> 112, not with my multiple methods, and BTW, I think that anytime that I truly mess up math on my predict, I can change it?
19:15:52 <Cooper> Who else agrees that when I truly mess up math, like a complete idiot(where 2 D 12 H=2.12 days) I can get my predict adjusted?
19:15:54 <ynpvisitor112> Maybe you should be better at math since that is always your excuse
19:15:58 <Cooper> Daisy
19:16:42 <Cooper> 112, I am plenty good at math(8th Grader and am Taking Algebra 2) but one of the things you will notice is that the better at super complex math you are, the worse you are at easy math
19:17:59 <Sam> Cooper - I applaud you for taking initiative at such a young age, however, one should test hypotheses before publishing.
19:18:13 <Cooper> Thanks Sam.......
19:18:24 <Cooper> that is what I am doing.. I have not published anything yet
19:18:38 <Cooper> I plan to once I get 5 to 10 good eruption in my window
19:18:54 <Sam> I know that may come off as a bit harsh. But, have you found a mentor at school to help you?
19:19:15 <Cooper> crazy to think tho how a little bit of simple math, that I know how to do, but failed at that time can change all of my data
19:19:45 <Cooper> Me an Lori are working together so she is my Mentor on here, and at School I bound a lot of ideas of off my Science teacher
19:19:55 <Cooper> bounce** not bound
19:20:34 <Cooper> as you can tell, at this being my 4th eruption it is still a work in progress:)..
19:20:54 <Sam> I would assume making predictions for unpredictable natural phenomenon involves a bit more than Algebra 2. It involves algorithms, something you won't really dive into till high school.
19:21:02 <Cooper> once I get the kinks out of the way(like stupid math), it will be in full swing
19:21:14 <Sam> But keep your passion! It's refreshing to see - it makes my teacher heart happy.
19:21:22 <Cooper> oh I forgot to mention I am also taking Statistics
19:21:27 <Cooper> you are a teacher?
19:21:35 <Sam> Yes I am.
19:21:55 <Sam> Still at school as a matter of fact - taking a break.
19:22:17 <Cooper> but yes... I still have quite a lot of work to go, I need to get the Algorithms I have so far to update and self check themselves
19:22:24 <Cooper> that is nice to hear that you are a teacher.
19:23:19 <Sam> You'll get better. But I would recommend till you're more confident in your predicting abilities and have a more sound-method to keep your predictions to yourself.
19:23:25 <Sam> Keep practicing, and testing.
19:23:35 <ynpvisitor62> I feel like hk wrote this on his blog for people like you Cooper: 22) Being a member of a social media group does not make you a geyser gazer. It especially doesn't make you any sort of expert. No matter how much you have read there, you still haven't done any field work, and have no idea what you are talking about. All you have is enough knowledge to figureatively get yourself into trouble, but
19:23:42 <Cooper> it also sucks that a lot of people are discrediting my info just because I am 13, and sometimes I make a lot of mistake
19:23:56 <ynpvisitor62> Read above
19:24:42 <Cooper> Thx for the advice Sam, I appreciate assistance from people, especially nice ones, and even more so nice teachers
19:25:03 <Cooper> but 62, really, I do not think I am an expert, and I mean Really
19:25:23 <Sam> You're welcome. But I'd also agree with 62. Until you've been in the park, I don't think anyone can consider themselves a gazer.
19:25:47 <Cooper> I have been in the park... I go into the part for a few weeks per summer
19:25:53 <Sam> And you've done *extensive* research *in* the park.
19:26:16 <Sam> Do you do any of the summer programs? That'd be a way to get your foot in the door.
19:26:18 <Cooper> I have sat for a VERY long time at SB thinking
19:26:20 <ynpvisitor62> Oops, here’s the end of the quote: but not the knowledge of how to get out of the trouble you've made.
19:26:40 <Cooper> I have done quite a lot of "research"
19:27:08 <ynpvisitor62> A lot of time? I thought you had a walk up SB?
19:27:14 <Cooper> I did
19:27:25 <Cooper> but then after that
19:27:41 <ynpvisitor62> Read the whole blog. It’s at geysers.org/notes
19:28:03 <Cooper> 62, no thanks, not if it is going to insult me like you
19:28:05 <Sam> Back to work. Night all.
19:28:10 <Cooper> bye Sam
19:28:13 <Sam> Cooper, he's not insulting you.
19:28:19 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
19:28:26 <Michael> Making predictions is part of the fun of being a geyser gazer. Taking them too seriously is a good way to ruin the fun.
19:28:29 <ynpvisitor62> Are you now claiming your prediction was wrong because you can’t do simple math?
19:28:47 <Sam> Michael, :thumbsup:
19:29:13 <Cooper> I am not claiming, I did. I did not do hour to decimal conversions right.
19:30:08 <Sam> I'll say one last thing before I actually log off: Keep researching Cooper. You obviously have passion - but there's a lot of people on this chatroom who have years and years of experience in and out of the park.
19:30:19 <Cooper> but yes Michael, I enjoy predicting
19:31:13 <Cooper> which sometimes makes it suck when I make a simple math error so people then completely discredit my fun
19:31:17 <Sam> Stay humble, take criticism (99% of the time, they're not insults) and keep referring to your mentors for learning.
19:32:56 <Sam> Just don't view your predictions as exact science and try to play it off as an exact science. At the end of the day geysers will act like geysers "It does that sometimes"
19:33:12 <Cooper> yes
19:33:33 <Sam> Alright? Good. Now I'm actually off - have to finish lesson planning for the week.
19:33:36 <Cooper> but does anyone want to hear my accurate predicts? based on my accurate math
19:34:02 <Sam> Keep your predictions to yourself is my answer. :) Keep working. Good night.
19:34:35 <Michael> You can tell me in a side-chat.
19:34:47 <Cooper> pm me
19:47:49 <Michael> Oh well, the upper basin prediction board looks empty between now and dark. Go North Goggle!
19:48:22 <Cooper> Bye Michael
20:43:06 <Cooper> Goodnight Everyone
20:43:09 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT
