06:36:42 <Cooper> Good Morning
06:36:47 <Cooper> Oblong?
06:37:11 <ynpvisitor39> nope
06:37:24 <Cooper> ok
06:44:55 <ynpvisitor3> R-side
06:55:03 <ynpvisitor3> possible second but too much steam
06:57:23 <Cooper> last Aurum report 24 hours ago
07:02:15 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
07:02:42 <CraigC> nice catches overnight
07:02:50 <Cooper> Hi Craig
07:03:05 <CraigC> hey cooper
07:03:17 <CraigC> hey Kat
07:03:27 <ynpvisitor3> Good Craig just trying to figure out Grand lots of steam
07:03:27 <Kat> Good Morning all - Late for work! :)
07:03:42 <Cooper> BTW... Part of the USGS Cite are currently on either Lockdown, or they Broke Down, if you try to get onto you will likely get a privacy error
07:03:44 <Cooper> Hi kat
07:03:52 <CraigC> Kat, do you need any help this am, I am not going anywhere for a while
07:06:19 <LindaG> Good morning.
07:06:27 <CraigC> hey Linda
07:06:56 <LindaG> Kat I sent you txt. Kevin needs coverage at 10am. I can do it if you cant, or maybe Craig wants to.
07:07:02 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
07:07:21 <Kat> Craig and Linda, Thanks - I got it covered. :)
07:07:26 <Cooper> Hi Linda
07:07:33 <LindaG> 👍
07:07:37 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
07:09:03 <Cooper> Coordinated Attack on USGS's Servers, or did they just Crash? That tis the question
07:09:14 <Cooper> Hi Dave
07:09:58 <ynpvisitor103> Expired security certificates.
07:10:10 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:10:18 <Dave from B™> Good SB morning everyone
07:10:18 <LindaG> So right after I signed off last night oblong went off. I'll try not to take it personally. 😉
07:10:41 <Cooper> Dave, maybe
07:10:46 <Kat> CraigC, LindaG, ynpvisitor3, I need some coverage on the Thursday 1600 shift - I have to go to Orlando to the airport. I'll put out a text too
07:11:29 <Cooper> Likely sometime in the next 25.17 Hours
07:11:49 <ynpvisitor3> I can cover thursday 1600 to dark
07:12:19 <LindaG> ynpvisitor3, oh good, I have a bird club meeting that I just remembered
07:13:19 <Kat> Thanks ynpvisitor3, - Appreciate it!
07:22:05 <Kat> It looks cold - don't mind the temp but better if the sun is out!
07:25:21 <ynpvisitor3> Looks like Turban or Turban and Vent
07:25:52 <ynpvisitor3> maybe
07:28:23 <CraigC> bulger
07:28:35 <ynpvisitor3> yes
07:30:09 <ynpvisitor3> Wild Guess--Daisy in ~ 20 min
07:31:54 <Kat> Looks like a SB kind of day!
07:32:30 <Dave from B™> That's the attitude Kat!
07:33:04 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:33:23 <CraigC> cherries can roll anytime
07:35:06 <Kat> Too bad I'm not there - all snuggled in warm clothes sitting in my chair, under an umbrella, in the :snow: and:drizzle: - just like my May SB!
07:35:27 <CraigC> :(
07:38:21 <CraigC> I wish I were there, I could be, but have other priorities I need to work on
07:39:55 <ynpvisitor3> Craig, Is SB a 7 reel slot machine :)
07:40:30 <CraigC> ynpvisitor3, good point, I'd have to go along with the probability :)
07:40:41 <Kat> :)
07:47:10 <Kat> AL
07:47:41 <Dave from B™> I just realized prime rate went down almost 2 weeks ago...nice pleasant surprise:)
07:49:08 <CraigC> that is the only negative thing about retirement, is a pension looks worse on loan apps. I was going to do a refi
07:49:31 <ynpvisitor3> quick look at daisy please
07:49:51 <Dave from B™> Yeah....I was being selfish. When you borrow 7 figures, a quarter % is huge
07:50:18 <ynpvisitor3> thanks nothing yet
07:50:26 <Dave from B™> You can always pickup a 15 hour a week job:)
07:50:45 <Kat> yw
07:51:21 <CraigC> Dave from B™, no thanks, I would rather stick to my 4% rate ;)
07:56:29 <CraigC> "Another industrial ugly morning The factory belches filth into the sky."
07:59:15 <Zinchronicity> Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin' ?
08:02:23 <Kat> OF 0801
08:04:10 <Kat> Great backlighting
08:04:57 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I pay 5%:)
08:06:16 <CraigC> refi!!!
08:07:08 <Dave from B™> That's for my line of credit at work...not my house loan:)
08:07:21 <CraigC> ahhh
08:09:48 <ynpvisitor3> The stream and controls had two large gaps last night, the Radio Link status shows no failures since installation 12 days ago, The overnight capture confirms the gaps, looks like we had a Century Link problem last night
08:26:11 <Cooper> anyone else having USGS Volcano problems?
08:27:06 <Dave from B™> No eruptions here
08:27:31 <Zinchronicity> Yeah, that's an open-ended question...
08:27:51 <Cooper> to be more specific you get a privacy problem?
08:29:22 <Dave from B™> outdated certificate....probably take a few days for USGS to fix
08:29:24 <Zinchronicity> Yeah, I see that. More info on Firefox - their certificate expired today. (New fiscal year might cause that.)
08:29:34 <Cooper> Grrr
08:29:35 <Cooper> Thanks
08:29:54 <Cooper> makes it hard for SB temps to update
08:39:35 <CraigC> Sb temp logger is updated
08:40:35 <Cooper> USGS Online:)
08:42:44 <Dave from B™> An ALMOST 50F event at SB a few hours ago
08:43:45 <Cooper> looks like some OK minors
08:44:29 <Cooper> we somehow need for there to be a live Cam in Norris
08:46:51 <Kat> Craig still here?
08:46:53 <CraigC> I'm sure it goes without saying, but the temp is relative, since the rocks of the channel are colder than the week before, and the week before... :)
08:47:03 <CraigC> no, ar eyou?
08:47:27 <Cooper> Craig is not here, neither am I
08:47:35 <CraigC> need some help?
08:47:46 <Kat> Craig - going to go outside with sick puppy for few minutes - if cam needs to move, feel free :)
08:47:50 <Cooper> Hi Eric
08:47:52 <Kat> brb
08:47:52 <CraigC> ok
08:47:59 <Eric> The Hello
08:48:44 <CraigC> hey Eric
08:48:56 <Eric> Hello Craig
08:49:59 <Dave from B™> Mornign Eric
08:50:01 <Katie> Puppy is still sick. :(
08:50:11 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:50:18 <Dave from B™> CraigC, thanks for the reminder of what air temps can do to logger info
08:50:22 <Eric> I would be on high alert for a SB this morning!
08:50:40 <Dave from B™> I could leave now and get there in time!
08:50:50 <ynpvisitor113> Eric, that time already?
08:51:00 <Cooper> 113, Possibly
08:51:03 <Cooper> Hi Linda
08:51:04 <CraigC> Eric, between Cooper on hyper-high alert, and Dave and I, we balance out to extra high alert
08:51:09 <Eric> Not sure about that Dave
08:51:23 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
08:51:32 <Cooper> adios
08:51:35 <Eric> The temps are climbing and we are right at the point of the 2nd to last eruption.
08:51:50 <Eric> They will either have a false start of eruption this morning I bet
08:52:12 <Eric> The charts look perfect
08:52:34 <CraigC> the lever has been pulled....
08:52:49 <CraigC> c'mon cherries
08:52:49 <Dave from B™> We are waiting for Betty
08:53:07 <Eric> I heard they are working on installing a new wet bar and diving board down at morning glory.
08:53:21 <Dave from B™> I do predict a daytime eruption today
08:53:45 <Dave from B™> haha Eric....Onion is saying that?
08:54:10 <Eric> You know...the regular rumor mill
08:54:36 <Rice> Kool a diving Board.
08:54:44 <Eric> I suggest they add a helicopter pad near the pit toilet for easier medical evacs
08:55:54 <ynpvisitor3> Reel one stopped on a cherry
08:56:13 <Eric> Morning Kevin
08:56:20 <CraigC> ynpvisitor3, 6 more to go
08:56:25 <Eric> or Joe
08:56:38 <ynpvisitor3> yes
08:57:26 <Dave from B™> Jimbo, I like your album reference
08:58:58 <Dave from B™> 1983 was a good year
08:59:16 <Kat> Thanks Craig - I'm back. Poor pup looks at me with these begging eyes when I put him back in the crate! :(
08:59:57 <Eric> Washburn is beautiful this morning
09:00:08 <CraigC> Kat, YW
09:00:10 <Eric> Sorry about your pup Kat :-(
09:02:20 <Kat> Thanks Eric. He's been exhausting but what are you gonna them!
09:02:57 <Kat> Wow, the SW view is awesome!
09:04:41 <CraigC> interesting view
09:04:43 <Katie> Why are we looking at that car?
09:04:49 <Kat> ok- I didn't do that....
09:04:52 <Dave from B™> Remember...equal opportunity for warm locales...I like beach scenes
09:05:08 <Kat> could be LE
09:05:10 <CraigC> I'm not on controls
09:05:38 <Dave from B™> Could be the inebriant's car
09:06:02 <CraigC> my thoughts, too
09:07:35 <Dave from B™> Ok...I'm nuts...anyone else imagining that car blowing up right now?
09:07:51 <Kat> Checking on it...looks like I have controls but not sure, checking
09:07:52 <CraigC> you're nuts
09:08:18 <Dave from B™> Really? You're not going to support a friend?
09:08:41 <Eric> Does anyone have control?
09:08:46 <CraigC> a true friend is honest
09:08:55 <Eric> I agree with Craig
09:09:22 <Kat> I do Eric
09:09:48 <Eric> Thanks Kat
09:10:00 <Eric> Can you make giantess erupt too?
09:10:19 <Kat> Looked like it was grabbed for a minute - ???
09:10:50 <Kat> Yes I can! :lol::lol::lol::lol:
09:10:53 <Eric> You would think they had better protocols for handing off the cam to LE or Admin
09:11:06 <Dave from B™> Alright...I wasn't afraid to admit it...don't hold it against me.
09:11:16 <Eric> Like a chat page :-P
09:11:21 <Kat> They usually call CC
09:11:40 <Dave from B™> I wonder how burn victim is doing
09:11:53 <Katie> CC might have been unreachable.
09:11:55 <CraigC> there is that "you would think...." fantasy about the govt ;)
09:12:03 <Eric> The news article I saw said they were in critical condition
09:12:33 <Kat> I talked to her - LE was unreachable...not sure but it's done
09:13:15 <Eric> Glad to hear that the wireless link has been stable and we are now just dealing with Century Link issues
09:13:23 <Kat> Amazing to think he walked back to his room in that condition. Hope he does OK.
09:13:29 <Katie> And we are told that the only people who will take camera from us are LEO's, CC and NPS digital media managers. So... I usually ask if other ops and I have wires crossed on shift schedule (happens), but if that's not the case, then I assume it to be NPS, but do send an email just in case of a hack.
09:14:24 <Eric> You would have thought they would build in some type of login that shows who is taking/requesting control
09:14:40 <Eric> oh well, I don't get to design all the software in the world :-P
09:14:40 <Dave from B™> Kat, alcohol can mask a lot of pain, I guess
09:14:52 <Dave from B™> Mask Geyser?
09:14:53 <Katie> the UI is the manufacturer's UI. It is what it is...
09:15:03 <CraigC> he says "I guess", as though he doesn't know
09:15:18 <Dave from B™> LMAO!!
09:15:23 <Eric> Ohh, I thought they built a custom wrapper for you are just using the canon web interface?
09:15:23 <CraigC> ;)
09:16:06 <Katie> Yup. Settings, like pre-sets and frame rate, etc. have been configured, but it's not a custom GUI.
09:16:07 <Kat> Dave from B™, Oh I know it can, not personal experience of course - but ER nurse for many many years! LOL
09:16:08 <Eric> It took them like months to figure out how to have camops working the cam originally, they said it was because they were building a camop interface.
09:16:25 <Katie> Maybe way back then, with that camera, they did...
09:16:35 <Eric> No, this camera, just on the old tree
09:17:08 <Katie> Oh, well... I could be mistaken! But when they put this new camera up (they didn't move camera, they installed a new one), the UI didn't change at all.
09:17:25 <Eric> Yep, same it makes sense
09:17:38 <Kat> they put in a new one- that was my understanding
09:17:48 <CraigC> Eric, Eric, buddy, you need to let go of the tree cam... it is gone, we have to move on.
09:17:50 <Eric> Yep, new camera, same exact model
09:18:10 <CraigC> RIP tree cam
09:18:25 <Eric> I think you might be projecting Craig :-P
09:18:31 <CraigC> :)
09:18:37 <Dave from B™> haha
09:19:21 <Eric> I like the new view for the streaming cam...just wish they would re-mount the other camera under the eve of the lodge and send stills every 15 seconds or so of down basin and the hill.
09:19:49 <Eric> Would make everyones life and observation sooo much better.
09:20:15 <CraigC> How do you think the view would be if this cam were on top of the VEC?
09:20:39 <Eric> So I did some research on climbing Eagle Peak, it's a pretty technical climb in the middle of nowhere :-P
09:20:46 <Dave from B™> You wonder, with the increase of rule breakers these days, if it might mean an increase in cameras to help LE
09:20:48 <Eric> Bad Craig
09:20:51 <Katie> We have a working cam & link. Don't rock the boat! ;)
09:21:18 <Eric> Don't speak too soon there Katie :-P
09:21:22 <LindaG> Dave from B™, he'd have to be pretty drunk to mask that kind of pain
09:21:37 <LindaG> But then he'd have to be pretty drunk to domwhat hendid
09:22:03 <Kat> 3rd degree burns don't've burnt all the nerves
09:22:03 <LindaG> *do what he did
09:22:05 <Eric> Sorry, no good disco emoticons Craig
09:22:38 <Kat> Now 1st and 2nd degree - over the top pain!
09:22:51 <Dave from B™> Good to know, Kat
09:22:58 <Katie> You know, I've been pretty darn drunk now and then. I've even been drunk in the UGB. But so drunk as to blame alcohol on walking off boardwalk in a geyser basin? I've never been in that condition.
09:23:03 <Eric> 💃💃💃
09:23:33 <LindaG> They just dont understand
09:24:13 <LindaG> Chances are he would have done it straight, just using as an excuse
09:24:17 <Katie> But, then, I wouldn't even walk the boardwalk drunk... even that could be disastrous.
09:24:36 <CraigC> I suddenly want to coordinate my next YNP visit around Katie's
09:25:05 <Dave from B™> hahahaha CraigC
09:25:05 <Kat> I agree Katie - you would have to be stuporous (not sure that's a word)!
09:25:32 <Dave from B™> Dpends on what Katie's drinks of choice are
09:25:36 <LindaG> Hi BWaggs
09:25:53 <BWaggs> Hello
09:26:00 <Katie> I'm getting old, CraigC. Those days are going the way of the dinosaur. That's not to say I've given up drinking, but I am far more moderate these days.
09:26:02 <Kat> Mix of ETOH and drugs possibly
09:26:19 <Kat> BWaggs, Hi
09:26:33 <LindaG> Remember the drunk guy that challenged the bison
09:26:47 <Eric> This is why they are installing the diving board at Morning Glory
09:26:53 <Kat> Yes, that was crazy
09:26:57 <Katie> Beer & cocktails - no wine. Those are my drinks.
09:27:47 <Kat> Hey Linda, how are ya!
09:28:11 <LindaG> Kat, I m good!
09:29:11 <Kat> I had a flock of migrating blue jays and then mourning doves this AM.
09:29:15 <CraigC> speaking of substance use, are you guys seeing lots of Vaping problems in your areas? As in deaths and hospitilizations?
09:29:48 <LindaG> Kat, nice
09:29:59 <Kat> We have had some here in Florida. I know Jersey has had some right Linda?
09:30:11 <Kat> vaping issues that is
09:30:24 <Katie> I think there has been one case in MT. But I've sure been subjected to considerable nagging (I vape nicotine - have for 10 years - don't buy blackmarket or bootleg stuff and have purchased the same thing for 10 years)
09:31:27 <Katie> But, I buy from a place in Spokane and Washington state may have a big legislative change to that business coming up. So...
09:31:29 <CraigC> Katie, interesting. I was going to buy a vape.... but have been hesitant
09:31:44 <ynpvisitor33> It’s illegal THC cartridges involved in the deaths.
09:32:28 <LindaG> Kat, I've read about problems with vaping, not sure if it was Jersey
09:33:04 <Kat> My understanding is that dispensaries that are legit are OK. It's the black markets that are contaminated.
09:33:13 <Kat> I could be wrong Linda
09:33:38 <Kat> Long pause
09:33:47 <ynpvisitor33> overreaction on this issue. All black market cartridges responsible for deaths
09:34:43 <ynpvisitor33> Too bad gun deaths don’t get as big a reaction
09:34:56 <CraigC> ynpvisitor33, maybe it is overreaction, but it still scares me, this vaping trend is relatively new, so there hasn't been enough time to find out long term effects
09:35:13 <CraigC> gun deaths don't?
09:35:23 <Kat> I agree Craig but it's a personal decision
09:35:23 <ynpvisitor33> Healthier than smoking, they know that
09:36:00 <Kat> huh?
09:36:22 <ynpvisitor85> More deaths by dui than guns and vape combined.
09:36:30 <Katie> My allergy/asthma doc said if I wouldn't stop smoking, ecigs would be better. Not good. Better. I was undergoing allergy shots at the time, so my peak expiration was being closely monitored.
09:37:08 <CraigC> ynpvisitor33, for sure.... there is a good doc on Netflix about e-cigarettes, they did some research and testing
09:37:18 <Katie> The first month, my peak expiration improved by 20%. The second month, another 10% (over baseline). Next two months, 5% each. So, 40% improvement in 4 months. I plateaued there.
09:37:21 <ynpvisitor33> Agree 85, yet they will NEVER touch sacred alcohol!!
09:37:42 <LindaG> Everyone should quit. I did
09:37:49 <Mike J> I was about to jump into the dui, guns, vape debate and realized that is what I have Facebook for....and why I quit going there
09:37:55 <ynpvisitor33> That’s so interesting Katie
09:38:21 <Katie> I quit smoking twice, for periods of 5 years each, but I kept going back during "life events."
09:38:22 <Kat> Katie I totally misunderstood your "peak expiration" LOL
09:38:57 <LindaG> Katie, I know it's hard. I quit a couple of times
09:39:10 <CraigC> I didn't mean for there to be any "debate" about vaping..... just expressing some of my fears, as I wanted to try it
09:39:26 <Kat> That's awesome improvement Katie!
09:39:37 <ynpvisitor33> Mike J, you can sign out of here anytime
09:40:12 <CraigC> how about we chill on it, this is a geyser chatroom, afterall
09:40:17 <Kat> Ewww, be nice !
09:40:18 <Katie> I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone but a current smoker try it. I am as disturbed as any about how youth have flocked to it.
09:40:27 <Dave from B™> I agree Craig
09:40:28 <CraigC> OF
09:40:47 <LindaG> So predictions for SB?
09:41:01 <Kat> Later today LOL
09:41:06 <CraigC> LindaG, between now and 3 days out
09:41:11 <Katie> this evening, right before dark
09:41:41 <Kat> Yeah - what Katie said!
09:42:14 <CraigC> my guess is around 11 to 1
09:42:18 <CraigC> today
09:42:28 <CraigC> not a prediction, a guess
09:42:33 <ynpvisitor33> Seriously though, a lot of things are discussed here, tons of sports, weather events, I don’t see why this discussion gets shut down.
09:42:51 <Mike J> Didn't mean to stifle the vape discussion. I found it interesting.
09:43:00 <CraigC> ynpvisitor33, emotions..... comparing vaping to guns and other hot topics
09:43:15 <ynpvisitor33> Interesting group dynamic.
09:44:17 <LindaG> We have a new civility protocol 😀
09:44:19 <CraigC> geyser chat unspoken rules are avoid stuff like politics, religion, etc, try to have fun
09:46:00 <CraigC> I like hearing others' views and experiences about vaping, if we can keep it chill
09:46:09 <Mike J> CraigC Kind of what I was trying to say. Which I apparenty didn't do well. Damn these damnable fingers and their tendency to type what I'm thinking!!
09:47:14 <CraigC> my geyser friends are some of the most intelligent people I know, I value your views
09:47:50 <LindaG> CraigC, do you smoke cigarettes now?
09:49:17 <CraigC> LindaG, no, I want to vape 'something else'
09:49:32 <Katie> Craig, IF you decided to try vaping in lieu of smoking, buy from a supplier that has a GCC (general certificate of conformity) that has been in the business for a while, that requires proof of age, etc. I buy liquid from Smart Smoke.
09:49:39 <Kat> IS it legal in your state?
09:49:40 <CraigC> but I am also curious about nicotine, for appetite suppression
09:50:42 <LindaG> Being so eine who recently developed asthma, my advice would to not inhale these foreign substances.
09:51:09 <Dave from B™> How long do you want to suppress your appetite...Mike Tyson could help you with that:)
09:51:11 <Katie> If you are looking for "something else," same principles. I have bought "something else" at a Vegas dispensary. Once. But edibles might be the better alternative.
09:51:30 <Kat> If yes then I would make sure the dispensaries are monitored and certified like Katie says.
09:51:31 <LindaG> Katie, exactly
09:51:55 <LindaG> Lungs are delicate
09:52:03 <CraigC> Katie, I've researched that a lot, and edibles are ok, but higher cost, and way different delivery effect
09:53:23 <CraigC> maybe the "something else" isn't really a good topic here..... the vaping might be better to weigh out
09:54:52 <Eric> Glad that is all over....I can come back now :-P
09:54:56 <Kat> Solitary is busy today!
09:55:12 <Kat> :lol:Eric,
09:55:14 <LindaG> how about that SB
09:55:14 <ynpvisitor113> Was the guy who broke through the crust out on Old Faithful caught on cam
09:55:21 <CraigC> no
09:55:29 <Eric> We should bring up religion and politics too...make it a real crazy day :-P
09:55:45 <LindaG> Politics would do it
09:55:54 <Eric> and I don't think there is any conclusion that he broke the crust anywhere
09:55:58 <ynpvisitor113> Thanks
09:56:26 <Eric> He is reportedly in critical condition in a burn unit with burns on a large percentage of his body.
09:56:34 <CraigC> my guess is either preplay, or there is some hot spring fed mini pools along the cone
09:56:40 <Eric> I doubt that happens from a crust breakthrough
09:57:03 <Eric> I heard through the grapevine that it might have been East Chinaman Spring
09:57:42 <Eric> or whatever the newer name is for that spring
09:57:44 <ynpvisitor113> My info from housekeeping at the Inn. VC closed mouth.
09:58:26 <LindaG> ynpvisitor113, I'm smiling at your sources, not sure why
09:58:35 <Dave from B™> Maybe we should return to Camper School today
09:58:42 <Kat> Depending on the % of burn - he may not survive it!
09:59:03 <CraigC> they said he fell in Mouth? :)
09:59:20 <ynpvisitor113> Serious lower body Burns and beer cans involved
09:59:26 <Dave from B™> hahahaha CraigC
09:59:46 <Eric> He better not have hurt favorite geyser!
09:59:52 <Dave from B™> Is there a pool on the OF platform?
10:00:02 <Eric> Not a hot one
10:00:12 <Eric> That I am aware of
10:00:14 <LindaG> Wow aurum, 1d 2h and 42m
10:00:26 <Eric> Dave broke it!
10:01:04 <Dave from B™> Hey Hey......I was enjoying not being picked on today!
10:01:20 <LindaG> Give us time 😉
10:01:43 <LindaG> Dave from B™, how is the minnow? Any regrets?
10:02:29 <Dave from B™> Only regret is when I received my first loan p[ayment request in the mail yesterday
10:02:34 <CraigC> always thinking of yourself, Dave
10:02:42 <Mike J> Is there an official report (news source, whatever) on that latest indicent?
10:02:47 <Dave from B™> Yeah...that's me
10:03:29 <CraigC> Mike J, yeah, but you have to open Facebook :)
10:04:00 <CraigC>
10:04:00 <Katie> Missoulian, NBC Montana, every other Montana news outlet, CNN all have articles
10:04:07 <LindaG> What we saw on Facebook would be on theirmwebsite
10:04:11 <Mike J> CraigC Maybe an exception in this case
10:04:22 <Mike J> Thanks, I'll check for it.
10:04:31 <CraigC> I linked it
10:04:46 <Eric> Even people magazine has an article!
10:04:51 <Mike J> Sheesh, not awake. Thanks Craigc
10:05:19 <Eric> GF eruption...nice
10:05:35 <Katie> Good. The more people see this news the better.
10:06:16 <Eric> I hope a server at the Inn didn't serve him drinks :-|
10:06:25 <Dave from B™> Do pics from trepassers get destroyed?
10:06:35 <Dave from B™> Eric, me too
10:06:41 <ynpvisitor79> NPS release
10:06:44 <Katie> Seems like he was a BYOB sort
10:07:04 <Eric> Yes, but that doesn't mean he didn't have multiple sources
10:07:19 <Dave from B™> Why, did they find a paper bag near OF?
10:07:28 <Eric> But it does elviate a lot of the liability.
10:07:33 <Katie> that's true, but makes it less likely that a bartender at the inn could be charged with over-serving
10:07:37 <Eric> to wrap his beer can in Dave!
10:07:48 <Eric> Agree KAtie
10:08:25 <Dave from B™> Eric, that's called a Koozie:)
10:08:46 <Kat> paper koozie?
10:08:52 <ynpvisitor109> GIANT HAS HIGH WATER!
10:08:54 <Dave from B™> or something like that anyway...Real Montanans don't need Koozies
10:08:58 <Cooper> well, high ish water
10:09:10 <Cooper> Bijou on Strong, Mastiff splashing
10:09:43 <Cooper> and then Grotto turned on:(
10:10:36 <LindaG> Arty steam maybe
10:10:59 <Cooper> Possibly Linda
10:10:59 <Kat> Wonder what is happening with this cam :(
10:11:13 <LindaG> Am I the only one with a 10 second delay on movement?
10:12:51 <Cooper> Me
10:12:54 <Cooper> I have some delay
10:13:44 <Dave from B™> Giant has been known to wake up in the fall. I hope this is a sign.
10:13:53 <LindaG> I wouldn't exactly call it streaming 😉
10:14:04 <Kat> Me eother Linda
10:14:10 <Cooper> I agree there Dave, I want a nice GHP on the Webcam
10:14:10 <Kat> either*
10:14:51 <ynpvisitor3> Looks like Century Link is having network problems
10:14:56 <Cooper> wonder what a GHP would look like?! and what Giant would look like, I want to know!
10:15:47 <LindaG> Cooper, me too
10:16:23 <Kat> GHP? I should know but.....
10:17:00 <ynpvisitor3> Giant Hot Period
10:17:12 <Cooper> yes
10:17:25 <CraigC> SB?
10:17:33 <Cooper> checking Craig
10:17:38 <ynpvisitor20> yes
10:17:49 <Dave from B™> I'm not convinced
10:17:52 <Cooper> I do not think SB
10:17:55 <CraigC> me neither
10:18:07 <Kat> I wish people would not always use abbreviations - not all know them. sorry
10:18:34 <Dave from B™> Kat, just ask...We promise to not be snarky
10:18:36 <Cooper> to sputtered around
10:18:47 <Kat> I did - :)
10:19:13 <Cooper> Dave, who said we would not be snarky?:p *kidding*
10:19:40 <Dave from B™> Yeah...I should have just said I wouldn't be snarky....hard to control you other renegades:)
10:19:47 <LindaG> I'm bad with abbreviations, lack of imagination I guess
10:20:59 <CraigC> he said he won't be snarky, then calls us renegades....
10:21:16 <Kat> hahaha
10:21:28 <Cooper> True Craig
10:21:33 <ynpvisitor20> :P
10:22:05 <Dave from B™> got me CraigC...and lots of stares at work from my loud uncrollable laughing
10:22:12 <CraigC> LMAO
10:22:43 <Kat> good - laughing is healthy!! and Keeps them guessing
10:22:43 <Cooper> be warned, ynpvisitor20 is someone at school here who managed to get the URL Address, ignore all messages from him, please. just a warning
10:23:17 <CraigC> is 20 as annoying as.... nvm
10:23:34 <Cooper> haha Craig
10:23:37 <Dave from B™> Kat....laughing is a part of my everyday life. Life is too short not to enjoy it everyday
10:23:53 <Kat> totally agree Dave
10:23:58 <Cooper> Craig, heading back to SB?
10:24:46 <Eric> I can block your whole school problems :-P
10:24:55 <Cooper> We know Eric
10:25:03 <ynpvisitor106> Yes, please
10:25:08 <Cooper> Eric with his power!
10:25:23 <Eric> Is there water at giant?
10:25:25 <ynpvisitor20> :grand:
10:25:28 <Cooper> Eric, yes
10:25:32 <Cooper> 20, PLEASE STOP
10:25:37 <Eric> I thought grand too...but it's not in window
10:25:51 <CraigC> isn't this ironic.... hahahaha
10:25:59 <Cooper> yes
10:26:02 <Cooper> COOPER PLEASE STOP
10:26:04 <Cooper> Ok
10:26:09 <ynpvisitor106> Too funny really
10:26:40 <ynpvisitor20> ;)
10:26:41 <ynpvisitor106> Maybe a sign someone shouldn’t be on chat while at SCHOOL?
10:27:17 <Cooper> 106, when I have all my work done, I get on here, and ONLY when I have all my work done:) I am a Good Student
10:27:38 <Eric> 20 seems ok...welcome #20 :-D
10:27:54 <CraigC> maybe 20 will be willing to do a favor....
10:28:09 <Dave from B™> Everyone has a price
10:28:58 <Eric> I like 20, they don't say much :-D
10:29:13 <Cooper> anyone elses cam going down?
10:29:25 <Dave from B™> Ask Eric
10:29:45 <Eric> Ask Dave
10:29:58 <Eric> ohh, hold on...
10:29:59 <CraigC> Dave, what does Eric say?
10:30:01 <Eric> Ask Craig
10:30:06 <LindaG> Cooper, it's still freezing off and on
10:30:12 <Cooper> Thanks Linda
10:30:12 <CraigC> CraigC, what say ye?
10:30:17 <Eric> Hi yeet
10:30:48 <Cooper> This is the last time I open up this page without something covering the URL:):p
10:31:09 <Dave from B™> Cooper, whatever you do, do NOT use duct tape
10:31:25 <ynpvisitor20> what will be the next geyser to erupt
10:31:27 <Eric> Permanent marker works better
10:31:38 <Eric> Probably Old Faithful yeet
10:31:46 <Cooper> So use duct tape, ok, seems like a odd thing to use but ok, I might as well cover it with some sharpie:p:p:p:p
10:32:07 <LindaG> Is mercury in retrograde?
10:32:29 <Mike J> More importantly, is mercury in renegade????
10:32:36 <Dave from B™> I think Aurum is next
10:32:46 <Cooper> His Name is Jack(son), welcome Jack
10:32:47 <Eric> Is mercury rising?
10:32:48 <CraigC> LindaG, wrong chat room, Planet Chat is down to the left
10:33:04 <LindaG> Haha
10:33:25 <Eric> Right next to the moral and medical tribulations of vaping chat
10:33:26 <CraigC> so far if I had to choose, I would pic 20
10:33:27 <Dave from B™> This is a crazy page today...whatcha all be smokin"?
10:33:36 <LindaG> Maybe it's a new moon this g
10:33:43 <LindaG> *thing
10:33:52 <Eric> I prefer to eat Dave :-D
10:33:56 <LindaG> Dave from B™, exactly
10:34:01 <Eric> never liked smoking of any kind
10:34:06 <Cooper> you eat Dave? Cannibal:p
10:34:21 <Eric> Tastes like chicken
10:34:21 <Kat> Y'd think it was a full moon :)
10:34:39 <Eric> No, then the guy would have been able to see the damn hot spring!
10:34:40 <CraigC> commas are important
10:34:42 <Mike J> Commas. The most important meal of the day
10:34:50 <CraigC> LOL
10:34:54 <Cooper> Lets eat Craig:p Haha
10:34:59 <CraigC> Eric prefers to eat Dave
10:35:08 <Eric> You grammer guys are funny
10:35:12 <Cooper> haha
10:35:13 <Kat> Eric makes LOL
10:36:13 <Eric> We haven't had a wc geyser entry for over 2 hours...that is the issue!
10:36:27 <Mike J> Speaking of commas, I'm proofreading the Sput and find myself in the middle of a huge comma debate between Pat Snyder and Steve Gryc. Ah, the life of a grammar geek
10:36:31 <Eric> It's going to be a busy afternoon
10:36:35 <Dave from B™> Pay attention!!! Did you all miss Lion?:)
10:36:44 <LindaG> Kat, for sure
10:36:47 <Eric> Do they have a style guide Mike?
10:36:56 <Eric> That shouldn't be a debate if they do
10:37:24 <Mike J> Nope. No style guide. We just kind of follow the rules we come up with.
10:37:32 <Mike J> But, trust me, it's better than it used to be.
10:37:43 <Kat> Dave from B™, did I?
10:37:45 <Cooper> Well, I am going to go here, Bye Craig, Linda, Mike, Cannible, Dave, and Everyone
10:38:00 <Eric> First thing you learn in journalism school...follow the style guide for EVERYTHING.
10:38:01 <Kat> and Kat
10:38:11 <Zinchronicity> Always use the Oxford comma, MikeJ.
10:38:30 <Eric> Only if using the Oxford style :-P
10:38:53 <Mike J> Oxford commas rule!!!!
10:39:02 <Zinchronicity> I'm surprised AP style doesn't require it.
10:39:07 <CraigC> thus began the comma debate of 2019 on geyser chat
10:39:16 <Mike J> (That sentiment is not expressed by the editors of the Sput)
10:39:25 <ynpvisitor44>
10:39:28 <Kat> Craig - make it stop! hahaha
10:39:34 <Katie> Commas save lives!
10:39:57 <Mike J> My son is a journalism major. The debates are quite scintillating
10:39:58 <CraigC> Oxford commas aren't as bad as AR15s
10:40:16 <Mike J> No, CraigC, NO
10:40:21 <CraigC> my mom dated an Oxford comma
10:40:22 <Kat> Craig - did you have to?? LOL
10:40:26 <Zinchronicity>
10:40:26 <ynpvisitor17> Halley's is my favorite comma
10:40:36 <CraigC> 17 LMAO
10:40:54 <CraigC> comma comma comma chameleon
10:40:57 <LindaG> There is a comma butterfly
10:40:59 <Mike J> Grammar humor??? Oh, the humanity
10:41:02 <Zinchronicity> Commas are closed in this discussion.
10:41:16 <Kat> LMAO
10:41:29 <LindaG> And there is a question mark butterfly
10:41:34 <Zinchronicity> Oh, the humanity?
10:41:50 <Mike J> (Shoot, I missed the joke. should have been "Oh, the Humanities)
10:42:17 <LindaG> 😃
10:42:47 <CraigC> Something Wicked this way Commas
10:43:08 <LindaG> Huh?
10:43:19 <CraigC> really, Linda?
10:43:28 <LindaG> Really
10:43:47 <Kat> I have no comma....
10:43:47 <LindaG> Ok I get it
10:44:05 <CraigC>
10:44:05 <Zinchronicity> With much more of this I'm going to be commatose.
10:44:15 <CraigC> Zinchronicity, hahaha
10:44:16 <Kat> hahaha
10:45:00 <Zinchronicity> I'm here all week. Actually I'm not, I'm going to Boston Thursday. Down by the hahbuh.
10:47:15 <Mike J> And thus did the geyser dashboard come to an end, subsumed by the Commageddon.
10:47:48 <LindaG> 🤣
10:48:15 <Kat> :lol:
10:48:38 <LindaG> And aurum probably went during g that commation
10:48:42 <CraigC> Mike J, awesome
10:48:59 <CraigC> LOL
10:49:00 <Eric> Lion tryin?
10:49:17 <Kat> I think Eric
10:49:37 <LindaG> Therefore I am
10:49:38 <Eric> What style guides do scientific journals usually follow?
10:49:47 <Eric> AP or oxford or ????
10:49:57 <Zinchronicity> It varies, especially by country of publication.
10:50:29 <Zinchronicity> They will usually designate it in the Guide for Authors.
10:50:42 <LindaG> Bbl
10:50:50 <Kat> See you then!
10:51:55 <CraigC> Lion
10:52:17 <Kat> Craig that was very short
10:53:06 <Katie> I walk away for ONE minute...
10:53:11 <Dave from B™> wow..on the phone for 5 minutes and I missed the comma lesson...Oh; well:D
10:53:42 <Katie> No, you didn't, Dave. :)
10:54:10 <CraigC> I think we have some viewing issues, lags and missing some of the time
10:55:31 <Eric> Was that a full eruption?
10:55:41 <Eric> or just a minor?
10:55:44 <Dave from B™> It's not full any longer
10:56:03 <ynpvisitor17> Shame!
10:56:04 <Kat> I think it would be a minor
10:56:19 <Eric> Looks like MLA is one of the more common style guides in america for academic journal writing
10:56:36 <Eric> Might want to update your GT post then.
10:57:15 <CraigC> I was hoping there was an in basin observation on that Lion
10:57:39 <Eric> Nobody is there...everyone in the right mind is in Norris :-P
10:58:02 <Dave from B™> And that explains why we're not there
10:58:10 <Eric> I am guessing anyone in UGB is stuck there
10:58:19 <Eric> Agree with you there Dave
10:58:20 <Kat> I was watching closely - even with the stuttering it was extremely short - minor
10:59:11 <CraigC> Marmot Cave
10:59:19 <Dave from B™> "Today's webcam is brought to you by Mel Tillis"
10:59:20 <CraigC> AL
10:59:25 <CraigC> LOL
10:59:34 <Eric> Lion again
10:59:40 <Mike J> How many people would still get that reference?
10:59:43 <Eric> at least another big puff
10:59:59 <CraigC> Oct 1, 2019 will be known as Commageddon, thanks to Mike J
11:00:18 <Mike J> Finally!!! A geyser legacy
11:00:22 <Dave from B™> Mike J, that is why I threw it out there.
11:00:23 <Kat> puffing a lot
11:00:40 <CraigC> no Kat, not the vape chat again
11:00:59 <Kat> Noooooo will not go there!!
11:01:35 <Mike J> Why does this feel like a Friday conversation?
11:02:09 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure what has happened today but someone has to be at fault.
11:02:11 <Kat> Every day is Friday for some of us :)
11:02:24 <Mike J> Dave from B I'm old enough that I no longer care if anyone gets my references. Just as long as I do.
11:02:35 <Katie> I usually miss Friday conversations. I've been missing out! ha ha
11:02:59 <Dave from B™> Mike J, it is our way of educating those younger than us
11:03:00 <CraigC> how is Friday chat any weirder than other days here?
11:03:22 <CraigC> Dave from B™, isn't Cooper the only one younger than you?
11:03:29 <Dave from B™> Mike J, as long as my wife laughs, I'm good
11:03:36 <CraigC> and not by much
11:03:37 <Dave from B™> :D:D:D
11:03:50 <Mike J> I've noticed Friday seems to be the day for weirdness, puns, and frivolities.
11:04:15 <Dave from B™> There has to be many people here under 56.5
11:04:16 <Mike J> Dave from B My wife gave up on me long ago - just shakes her head and walks away
11:04:42 <Dave from B™> Mike J, she is laughing on the insise....she doesn't want you to see it.
11:04:56 <Eric> looks like they have the BW ripped up over there...I hope they can get new stuff back in before the snow hits big time.
11:05:15 <Mike J> No, I actually think she is reviewing those marriage vows - looking for a loophole
11:05:47 <Dave from B™> There is no FINE PRINT on wedding vows
11:05:59 <Mike J> Thirty-six years in November, and she's still looking
11:06:07 <Kat> Did you already look Dave?
11:06:10 <CraigC> isn't there a Cleave clause?
11:06:35 <Mike J> I thought there might be something related to sanity, but as we know, there is no Sanity Clause
11:06:42 <Mike J> (With a nod to the Marx brothers)
11:06:45 <CraigC> Santa's younger brother, Cleave
11:07:12 <Mike J> Dave from B How's that for an old reference
11:07:15 <Dave from B™> hahahaha Mike J
11:07:38 <Dave from B™> Mike J, that is before my you can laugh on your own:)
11:08:24 <Mike J> That's it!!! Get off my lawn!!!!!!
11:08:39 <Kat> :)
11:10:07 <CraigC> crap, I forgot to go watch the Big Boy train, I hate all of you for being funny
11:11:07 <Dave from B™> Can't you still catch it
11:11:35 <CraigC> I doubt it, lots of traffic around it, have to get a spot early
11:11:39 <Kat> It never ends! Love it!
11:12:54 <Kat> OF
11:14:23 <Kat> Hi Kevin - hope all went well! You have missed some very funny people this morning!
11:15:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning. I will have to check the log. Ready anytime to take it when you are.
11:16:18 <Kat> It's all yours. Glad to help out!
11:16:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Got it.
11:16:44 <Kat> :)
11:17:25 <CraigC> don't let Kevin know I forgot about the Big Boy
11:18:19 <Kat> I won't tell..sshhhhh
11:19:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Not due into SLC until 1340
11:21:27 <Dave from B™> CraigC....park aways away...take your ebike and squeeze through the, GET OUT OF HERE AND GO SEE WHAT A BIG BOY LOOKS LIKE!!
11:22:08 <Eric> He is waiting for SB...he can't resist
11:22:29 <Dave from B™> I promise I won't say anything funny until you return
11:22:32 <Eric> Probably sitting in a crappy camp chair
11:22:52 <Eric> outside on his laptop...get the real SB experience...virtually
11:22:59 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
11:23:07 <Eric> With the garden hose ready to fire
11:23:17 <CraigC> LOL
11:23:18 <Dave from B™> Eric, do you have a dell phone booster for your camper?
11:23:19 <CraigC> LMAO
11:23:21 <Dave from B™> cell*
11:23:39 <Eric> I don't, but Art swears by them
11:23:40 <Dave from B™> He has it kinked and ready?
11:23:43 <CraigC> that imagery, hahaha
11:23:47 <Eric> He can get signal at Norris with his
11:24:06 <CraigC> whoa, now I need to google cell boosters
11:24:13 <Dave from B™> We will go that direction. I want to be able to work when I'm off for 2 weeks in my van
11:24:28 <Dave from B™> CraigC, what are you still doing here?
11:24:33 <Eric> I think he loaned his old one to the beverlys so they can get cell signal easier
11:26:06 <Dave from B™> I'll have to ask Art when I get closer to buying one
11:26:08 <Kat> bbl all - thanks for all the laughs
11:26:36 <Dave from B™> Bye, Kat
11:27:30 <CraigC> wow, those boosters are 200 to over 500 on Amazon
11:27:47 <ynpvisitor21> 2 weeks in a minibego?
11:28:12 <ynpvisitor21> Get the cheep one on ebay from the chinese spy company
11:28:43 <Dave from B™> 21, I really don't mind tight living quarters as long as it doesn't rain all day and I'm stuck in it 24/7
11:29:31 <CraigC> I think I could live all the time in my trailer
11:29:41 <ynpvisitor21> You will not have room for food with the sat dish, cell booster, computer, and box of files to work on.
11:29:58 <ynpvisitor21> You will need to pull a trailer
11:31:01 <Kevin L™🌵> He needs a mobile fish tank
11:31:36 <Dave from B™> How about a commercial lobster tank in the aisle so I can make some money?
11:31:43 <ynpvisitor21> chest freezer full of free samples
11:32:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Sell lobster out your window?
11:32:36 <Dave from B™> I have a rear door:)
11:33:05 <ynpvisitor21> He will be easy to find in that camp ground with the deer poll strung between 2 trees. His camp spot will be the one with the 300 pound halibut hanging up.
11:33:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Do a tent attachment and you could have a dining room.
11:33:45 <ynpvisitor21> He has a awning, maybe it has the sides?
11:34:23 <Dave from B™> no sides on awning
11:34:52 <ynpvisitor79> Fishing Cone? I'm sure no one would notice...
11:35:08 <Dave from B™> You guys are giving me some good ideas. A hitch with some freezers on it:)
11:39:08 <ynpvisitor21> Bears Choice Seafood
11:39:36 <ynpvisitor21> Cub tested, mother approved.
11:41:27 <ynpvisitor21> Boo-Boo's best fish sticks.
11:41:45 <Eric> haha
11:41:55 <Eric> Yep..Dave, a grizzlies best friend
11:42:29 <Eric> Park that fish trailer at Fishing Bridge and see how long it takes the grizzlies to open it up like a tin can :-P
11:45:18 <Dave from B™> haha Eric
11:45:37 <Dave from B™> I commercial hauling in the park
11:46:41 <Dave from B™> Just like the true story of 7 identical white rental colors being driven from Jackson to Cody.....being brought through the park....A BIG NO NO
11:46:54 <Dave from B™> colors = cars stupid spell check
11:47:03 <ynpvisitor21> You can make deliveries. Everyone else does.
11:48:46 <Eric> Anyone here know Tom Carter...yellowstone guide?
11:49:03 <Eric> I want to hit him up for some Eagle Peak route info :-D
11:49:53 <Dave from B™> That's probably a MA question
11:50:34 <Eric> I know MA knows him :-D Her facebook told me that.
11:50:41 <Eric> Lori and Pat know him too
11:51:09 <Eric> Thought someone here might know him too
11:51:13 <Eric> NG
11:51:14 <Eric> .
11:51:15 <Eric> .
11:51:15 <Eric> .
11:51:16 <Eric> .
11:51:16 <Eric> .
11:51:16 <Eric> .
11:51:17 <Eric> .
11:51:27 <Eric> Wowzers
11:51:30 <Eric> didn't expect that
11:51:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice
11:52:43 <Dave from B™> Looks like Aurum is still in play
11:52:52 <Dave from B™> Nice catch. I missed NG
11:53:25 <Eric> maybe kent caught it
11:58:46 <Dave from B™> Eric, has your daughter narrowed her college list down to 10 yet?
12:07:04 <Eric>!
12:07:13 <Eric> She is sick today and in bed :-(
12:07:53 <Eric> It is FAFSA day though...yeeehaaa
12:08:04 <Eric> Happy October everyone
12:11:10 <Dave from B™> Halloween stuff is already up at our house
12:11:17 <Dave from B™> has been for 3 days now
12:11:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Tell her she has to pay for it Eric. That will narrow things down a bit.
12:13:34 <Dave from B™> Sounds like schools actually want her to come to school and they are willing to pay her for it
12:15:10 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a plus.
12:15:45 <Mike J> I'm outta here. Everybody have fun. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
12:16:00 <CraigC> what is Wang Chung?
12:16:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I am afraid to ask.
12:16:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey Mike, temps in the 50s here this morning!
12:16:39 <ynpvisitor99> Wang Chung is still a thing - I thought they went out with the 90's
12:17:04 <Katie> I owe Mike for that ear worm
12:17:19 <Dave from B™> hahaha. I got that reference Mike J
12:17:36 <CraigC> I got it, too :)
12:18:14 <Dave from B™> We just sing the words here. Google if you want to know why songwriters choose the words they do:)
12:23:46 <Eric> Not really worried about cost right now, just getting into the right school...she works her butt off all the time and deserves some good college payoff IMHO.
12:25:20 <Kevin L™🌵> I sent mine to school and she ended up with an MRS degree.
12:26:41 <CraigC> bulger
12:29:49 <ynpvisitor48> riverside
12:30:03 <Casey> Oops. Hi. Riverside.
12:30:13 <CraigC> hey Casey
12:30:44 <Casey> Hi CraigC
12:32:19 <Casey> I posted riverside so you don't have to
12:32:55 <CraigC> ;)
12:33:23 <Dave from B™> Kevin, that is not such a bad thing, either
12:33:45 <Kevin L™🌵> It seems to have worked out for her.
12:33:53 <Dave from B™> I have a pretty good idea that my son won't get a college degree
12:35:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Right now a lot of blue collar jobs make more than degreed positions.
12:35:47 <Zinchronicity> My father was fond of showing me how long it would take me to "catch up", salary-wise, if I got a Ph.D. instead of getting a job out of college.
12:36:16 <Kevin L™🌵> My Son did about 6 months in an HVAC school and is making more than many of his friends with a degree.
12:37:25 <Dave from B™> Many trades make good money if you stick to it
12:39:13 <Kevin L™🌵> It also saved me about $5000 on an AC job.
12:41:35 <Eric> Getting a degree isn't all about a job IMHO
12:42:01 <Eric> If money is your main concern, there are probably easier paths
12:42:25 <Dave from B™> Eric, that is true. Parker is smart but thinks college is worthless
12:42:40 <Katie> I agree that getting a degree isn't about getting a job. I didn't finish mine. I had been working 60+ hrs/week and taking 18 credits of all honors courses and burned out. Took a "year off."
12:42:42 <Eric> Having a good rounded education can make you a better thinker.
12:43:01 <Eric> But it definitely isn't a prerequisite or a sure thing :-P
12:43:06 <Dave from B™> He needs another year of growing up before I'm ready to talk to him about not finishing school
12:43:19 <Katie> Didn't go back because I was making more money than if I finished my degree. I regret that sometimes. I like my job. It's fine. But I enjoyed/enjoy learning, too.
12:43:38 <Eric> OF
12:43:44 <Dave from B™> Katie, you can always go back and take classes to "enjoy learning"
12:43:50 <CraigC> of
12:43:55 <Eric> Nice tall one
12:44:02 <Eric> wow...what a column
12:45:10 <Kevin L™🌵> If everyone went to college who would run backhoes, lay bricks, weld....
12:45:21 <Casey> People with college degrees
12:45:59 <Eric> Nailed it Casey :-D
12:46:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Right now do you know the most common phrase uttered by engineering graduates?
12:46:14 <Katie> I have taken some classes in topics of interest, Dave from B™, My point, though, is that time in college does make a more well-rounded individual. Kevin's daughter benefited. She has the advantage of education.
12:46:15 <Eric> hopefully more rounded people.
12:46:42 <Katie> That said, I have a friend with an engineering degree driving for UPS. It doesn't always pave the path to a better job, but it does pave the path to a better life.
12:47:21 <Dave from B™> It does make for a well rounded person
12:47:33 <Eric> But don't get me wrong...I don't think college is for everyone. People have different learning styles and sitting in a classroom or reading just doesn't sink in for some.
12:48:01 <Katie> I live in Missoula where the servers in restaurants, the bartenders, the pizza delivery people, etc. may have masters degrees. Some would do better to go back to school - a trade school.
12:48:20 <Eric> You can get perspective about the world and history in many different ways.
12:48:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I did enjoy some college courses but there are some that really make no sense at all.
12:49:10 <Katie> some of the ones that have no impact on employ-ability are the ones I enjoyed the most. :)
12:49:13 <Eric> They would do better economically Katie, but maybe not from their own personal growth perspective. Money isn't everything.
12:49:41 <Eric> But as I tell my daughter, it sure helps you do the things you want to do :-P
12:49:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Lack of money is a major problem though.
12:50:01 <Dave from B™> all time favorite class was Montana History taught by Harry Fritz...not in my degree but I loved that class every single day
12:50:18 <Eric> You don't have to love your job, but like what you are doing...make enough money to do the things you want to do in life.
12:50:21 <Katie> Eric, I'm talking about the people with useless masters (useless as far as job potential). They could go back to trade schools to pay off those massive student debts for the degrees they can't use.
12:50:31 <Dave from B™> I still have my notes from that class from 1983
12:51:09 <Katie> I LOVED Harry Fritz. That was a required class for education majors. I actually tested out of being required to attend the first 2 thirds of the semester and the first two mid-terms, but enjoyed the lectures so went anyway.
12:51:14 <Casey> The work I currently do does not require college education (but it sure helps on the resume). I'm strongly considering pursuing a masters degree still. I may just be a gluten for punishment though.
12:52:33 <Dave from B™> Katie, my daughter is in the education track at UM as a junior currently
12:52:38 <Kevin L™🌵> I could have picked up a job with the City but that would have trapped me to just the city limits. My State job paid about 20% less but I had free run in half the State of Nevada. It was worth it.
12:52:40 <Eric> what is your degree in Casey?
12:52:45 <Dave from B™> youngest daughter...guess I have 2:)
12:53:16 <Katie> Education is the "family business." We have more teachers in our family than any other 10 occupations combined.
12:53:17 <Eric> Can we spin back toward grand?
12:53:54 <Casey> Eric, my degree says Digital Media. It was an interesting mix of communications, design, and computer science.
12:54:06 <Eric> Interesting
12:55:03 <Eric> What are you thinking of getting your masters in?
12:55:40 <Casey> Human-Computer Interaction and Design
12:55:51 <Eric> oh nice
12:55:57 <Eric> HCI is a cool field
12:56:58 <Eric> My daughters summer internship really opened her eyes to a lot of areas of engineering
12:57:26 <Eric> She worked project engineering for high power transmission lines.
12:58:23 <Eric> Interesting intersection of civil, electrical, structural engineering
12:59:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Those are interesting. I dealt with a bunch of them at work.
12:59:34 <Kevin L™🌵> The cost of the corner poles is jaw dropping.
12:59:44 <Casey> I somewhat rebelliously became the HCI expert at an agency full of artists who thought they were designers. They didn't take constructive criticism very well, so I left instead of continuing to develop sites that I had no confidence would actually help the stakeholders.
12:59:57 <Eric> Yep, these are mainly steel lattice towers for interstate transmission lines
13:00:35 <Eric> Yes, artists ignore UX often
13:00:46 <Kevin L™🌵> A whole lot more engineering in those than people realize.
13:00:57 <ynpvisitor36> I missed a NG:(
13:01:04 <Eric> haha....yes and the terminology is exhaustive :-P
13:01:43 <Eric> Interesting tidbit, the different cables are all named after birds :-P
13:02:01 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
13:02:45 <Kevin L™🌵> The thing that surprised me is the difference in sag due to temperatures and load.
13:04:13 <Eric> and over time
13:04:32 <Eric> Also the phasing they have to do is really interesting as well
13:04:51 <Eric> All kinds of weird tricks for moving high power over thousands of miles
13:05:06 <Kevin L™🌵> It made it interesting the get the proper clearance over a highway.
13:05:29 <Eric> She worked for BPA, they move all the power from the PNW down to california and around the NW
13:05:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Fiber optics is another fun one.
13:05:52 <Eric> Well, all high power transmission lines from BPA have fiber on them too
13:06:00 <Cooper> SB
13:06:01 <Cooper> !
13:06:01 <Cooper> !
13:06:01 <Cooper> !
13:06:03 <Cooper> .
13:06:03 <Cooper> .
13:06:03 <Cooper> .
13:06:07 <Eric> Which is also part of the equation and then the grounding
13:06:17 <Eric> I don't see it
13:06:27 <Eric> woop there it is
13:06:32 <Katie> My husband did fiber optic work for a couple years. Paid off our debts. GREAT wages.
13:06:36 <Eric> just needed an update
13:07:11 <Eric> looks like SB about 1253
13:07:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't ever cut one Katie. :P Lots of lawyers.
13:07:26 <Cooper> What # is that?
13:07:42 <Eric> Craig, release the hose!
13:07:51 <Eric> and put on your rain gear
13:07:57 <Katie> Kevin L™🌵, that's for sure!
13:08:04 <Cooper> what is 31-7?
13:08:21 <Cooper> 24!
13:08:33 <Cooper> I was 1 Hour and 24 Minutes of with my prediction:)
13:08:54 <Eric> My prediction was 1253...nailed it
13:09:30 <Cooper> really?!
13:09:46 <Eric> Yep
13:09:50 <Cooper> NICE!
13:09:54 <Cooper> Congrats
13:10:32 <Cooper> That was my 7th one, this was 84mins off, my minimum one was less than 1 minute(near 1 minute)
13:10:36 <Eric> Glad it went at a decent hour for everyone this time.
13:10:40 <Cooper> Yes
13:10:59 <Cooper> a bit cloudy, but "warm" and in the light:)
13:11:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Wonder if it hit the parking lot.
13:12:03 <Cooper> why does it have that pause after the first trace?
13:14:17 <Cooper> You know I am happy when the teacher I am eating lunch with wonders why my smile is so huge:):) and why I screamed "SB!"
13:15:06 <Cooper> Arty
13:16:53 <Dave from B™> Eric, I would have made it in time!!!
13:17:31 <Casey> Woot!
13:17:32 <Cooper> Dave, yes, yes, yes you could have!
13:17:46 <Cooper> long pause after that first thingy
13:18:14 <Cooper> Dave, what number is that?
13:18:55 <Dave from B™> #70 in this active phase....38 for the year...stats upcoming
13:19:04 <Cooper> Thanks
13:20:54 <Cooper> in honor of our great friend Great Friend Geysir
13:22:14 <Dave from B™> Last 100 SB stats....Median down 3h34m to 8d5m
13:22:37 <Dave from B™> Mean down 3h to 134d53m
13:23:48 <Dave from B™> Alright. Time to go sweat. Enjoy NG or Giantess
13:26:37 <Katie> Migraine + working with Cambium support on an P2P that is getting radar frequency interference is not a good combination.
13:30:39 <sjötíu> where is the second SB thingy
13:32:00 <Katie> second thingy? You mean Tantalus gauge? Norris loggers? All over on the right of this page.
13:32:06 <sjötíu> can we pan over to Grand?
13:32:10 <sjötíu> uhmmm
13:32:26 <Casey> Lack of a second strong seismic signature? Probably just still hasn't entered a true steam phase.
13:32:48 <sjötíu> Katie, yes, that is what I was talking about
13:33:03 <sjötíu> Casey**
13:33:06 <sjötíu> not Katie
13:39:57 <sjötíu> can we look at Grand?
13:41:35 <ynpvisitor99> How can sb be posted as a major from a e?
13:43:47 <sjötíu> because of past examples with this Geyser
13:44:16 <sjötíu> it has that large trace anytime it has a major, then usually it will quiet down and the large trace will pick back up
13:44:39 <ynpvisitor99> usually?
13:45:23 <sjötíu> sometimes it just stays strong through most of the eruption, but if we see that trace, we can confidently identify the start of it as a Major
13:46:35 <sjötíu> and 99, sometimes it has a VERY tiny trace
13:51:46 <ynpvisitor99> Seems like there has been head scratching before when real reports came in. Just sounds like jumping the gun to me.
13:52:45 <sjötíu> 99, yes there is always some scratching the head coming from me... but when I see that type of trace, I only do a few seconds of it before I convice myselft that it Majored again:)
13:53:32 <sjötíu> I am wondering 2 things right now, 1. Where is the second trace thingy/is it going to happen, and 2. Is this going to be one that has a very small seismic trace
13:55:33 <ynpvisitor99> I am only wondering if the cam will keep working. I am stuck in a loop
13:55:35 <sjötíu> yup
13:55:46 <sjötíu> bbev posted
13:55:54 <sjötíu> 49 Minutes of Water! Nice
13:56:13 <Katie> and confirmed no pauses
13:56:32 <sjötíu> yup
13:56:38 <ynpvisitor97> Confirmed
13:58:49 <sjötíu> Daisy
13:59:18 <sjötíu> Bulger
13:59:24 <ynpvisitor99> cam is not fun
14:00:08 <sjötíu> 99, not really, yes it goes down every now and then. but a whole lot better than the old cam
14:00:15 <ynpvisitor79> Anyone been following this? Carson King's final total raised for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital is $2,959,336.
14:00:58 <Casey> Daisy ie
14:02:12 <Casey> Nm. Just saw it was posted
14:02:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Long Grand interval
14:03:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Can anyone see Betty?
14:04:25 <sjötíu> I can not
14:08:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls are dropping now also.
14:09:54 <sjötíu> been down for a few mins now:(
14:10:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be power outage
14:11:01 <sjötíu> Static is not down tho
14:14:43 <ynpvisitor68> of static
14:20:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Outage has been reported
14:23:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand is ie
14:38:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Just in case you didn't know, it was 151 years ago today that the Central Pacific Railroad reached Winnemucca Nevada.
14:46:39 <Eric> Lots of wobbling people in that video Kevin :-P
14:46:39 <CraigC> 09:42:14 ‹CraigC› my guess is around 11 to 1
14:49:24 <Eric> 13:08:54 ‹Eric› My prediction was 1253...nailed it
14:49:39 <CraigC> LMAO
14:49:46 <sjötíu> I was 1 Hour 24 Mins Off:) Cooper Here
14:49:51 <sjötíu> Nice Craig
14:50:07 <CraigC> just a guess, nothing more
14:50:20 <Eric> Mine was pinpoint prediction
14:50:34 <Eric> Using ultra secret algorithms
14:51:33 <Eric> Matrix Quantized, Reverse Regressionals.
14:53:35 <Eric> That is why streaming stopped...all the computers are being used to predict the next one.
14:53:50 <Eric> If the internet runs slow today...sorry.
14:53:53 <ynpvisitor3> Kevin, Ialso sent DaveK information on the outages, they started ~0105 this morning, From what I can see it is a Century Link problem
15:00:29 <ynpvisitor3> Kevin, It is not just the camera IP addresses that go missing but other IP addresses that I look at as well
15:00:36 <ynpvisitor3> Aurum
15:00:49 <ynpvisitor3> 1459
15:05:50 <sjötíu> AURUM!
15:05:53 <sjötíu> yay
15:06:00 <sjötíu> it finally was seen
15:23:10 <LindaG> Yay steamboat
15:24:19 <Dave from B™> I still believe that "steamier" SB eruptions have a bigger seismic footprint

15:39:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Going to leave it back so it will be on BH is I lose controls.
15:41:53 <ynpvisitor3> BEE
15:44:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't think I would do a shower at 41°.
15:44:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Rainbow
15:45:34 <Dave from B™> You would need an insulated rain jacket today
15:45:50 <Dave from B™> We are not much wamrer at 47F
15:50:48 <ynpvisitor3> We are 40 deg f here in Wyomings Hot Spot
15:53:35 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎 81°
15:54:07 <ynpvisitor3> :p
15:55:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Almost Rainbow Canyon weather!
15:55:51 <Dave from B™> 3, just head for the hot springs and you'll warm up
15:56:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Caliente has hot springs too!
16:01:13 <Dave from B™> Goodbye, King of Pain
16:01:26 <ynpvisitor3> Bulger
16:02:00 <Kevin L™🌵> You must be talking about a lawyer Dave.
16:03:41 <Dave from B™> You have your dad's estate tidied up yet?
16:04:10 <Kevin L™🌵> All lawyers and bankers should be killed.
16:04:10 <Dave from B™> I have a lot of lawyer work that needs to be done. I've been procrastinating for years
16:04:25 <Dave from B™> They all have their hand out?
16:04:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Out? In my pocket!
16:05:55 <Eric> oktoberfest shutdown for the night
16:07:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Helpful hint. If you put the original document in a safe deposit box, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOMEONE BESIDE YOURSELF THAT IS AUTHORIZED TO OPEN THE &%$% THING!!!!!!
16:11:42 <Dave from B™> Yep. I'm on my mom's box. Have been for 30 years
16:12:00 <Dave from B™> Oktoberfest should almost be over
16:12:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like Daisy
16:13:00 <Eric> too Dave :-D I have a key and authorized for my parents
16:13:06 <Eric> daisy
16:13:13 <Eric> as kevin said :-P
16:13:38 <Dave from B™> I have power of attorney for financial and my wife is power for medical since she goes to her appts with her
16:15:17 <Kevin L™🌵> He put me on the checking account (thankfully) but not the savings or the box. I suspect he thought he had me on those. I tried to get him to review things but he "didn't want to 'complicate' things". :P
16:18:38 <Dave from B™> Yeah. There is still 1 account I need to add my signature to. I need to get that done
16:19:42 <Dave from B™> Hey, did we step back in time about 2 weeks. What's up with the cam today?
16:20:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Basically what he did my not reviewing is give lawyers $5000 to $10000 out of his estate. Could have been handled for about $1000 had he been living.
16:22:31 <ynpvisitor3> Dave, as near as I can figure we have a Century Link problem, started very early this morning
16:22:42 <Cooper> Missed Bee:(
16:23:17 <Dave from B™> A bird on the wire?
16:23:29 <Lori S> Hi Cooper. Thx for the email earlier about SB. I saw that before I saw the seismo.
16:23:39 <Cooper> YVW
16:23:44 <Cooper> Hi Ms. Lori
16:25:03 <Katie> Matt has us registered for an estate planning class/seminar/lecture/course/something next week. I'm not a very enthusiastic participant, but I'm playing along
16:25:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Trust me Katie, it IS a smart move.
16:26:12 <Lori S> I have moved teh webcam status back up to the top on the right. This is not good.
16:26:48 <Cooper> wait, you can do that?
16:27:15 <Katie> You can move any of the "boxes" on this page, Cooper. Arrange them as you will...
16:27:23 <Dave from B™> Katie, just leave me your backjack skills in your will, please:)
16:27:34 <Dave from B™> blackjack*
16:27:47 <Cooper> Katie, how?
16:27:57 <Lori S> Click and hold on the upper right where the 3 bars are, then move at will Cooper
16:28:06 <Lori S> Sorry, upper LEFT
16:28:08 <Cooper> WOAH!
16:28:12 <Cooper> Thanks!
16:28:29 <Lori S> YVW
16:28:51 <Dave from B™> Lori S, you forgot to tell Cooper about the fee for those changes:)
16:29:15 <Cooper> do you have to do it everytime? or does it save?
16:29:28 <Lori S> Every time if you clear cookies
16:29:33 <CraigC> I paid about 600 to have all my will and trust set up
16:29:38 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
16:29:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Ugh. I just realized that I passed my shift end. Controls released.
16:29:51 <Lori S> Dave from B™, I am good with virtual donuts :)
16:29:52 <Katie> But as long as you don't clear cookies, it stays the way you arranged until you re-arrange
16:30:02 <Cooper> THIS IS AWESOME!
16:30:25 <Lori S> Cooper, has a 0= moment
16:30:32 <Lori S> BRB
16:30:39 <Cooper> 0= *1000000000
16:31:40 <Cooper> WOW
16:31:48 <Cooper> I am truly amazed!
16:31:56 <Dave from B™> That will keep Cooper occupied for awhile:D
16:32:03 <Cooper> yup
16:32:08 <Dave from B™> You can thank Eric for that
16:32:11 <Cooper> like a Dog/Cat and a new toy
16:32:15 <Katie> Like Christmas morning. A kid with a new toy.
16:32:58 <Cooper> you know you are a nerd when you are amazed that you can move the seismos up, and you are amazed at it
16:33:20 <Katie> Dave, I've made a note to bequeath my blackjack skills to you, for what it's worth.
16:33:24 <Cooper> are there any other neat tricks like that I can do?
16:34:32 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Katie!
16:34:40 <Katie> You can "rewind" the static view of OF. Do you know about that "trick?"
16:35:33 <Cooper> yes
16:35:33 <Katie> And you can change the size of the display of the statics... (and choose one or cycle through)
16:35:43 <Cooper> of what statistics?
16:36:17 <Katie> static cams - not statistics. ;)
16:36:29 <Cooper> how do oyu change the size?!
16:36:36 <Cooper> and cycle?
16:36:45 <Katie> click on 2x to change size
16:36:51 <Katie> click on cycle to cycle
16:37:13 <Katie> show all gives you a tiled box of all of them
16:37:20 <Cooper> woah!
16:37:33 <Cooper> wow!
16:37:41 <Cooper> 3 new toys all in 1 day
16:38:06 <Katie> Just call us the Three Wise wo(Men)
16:38:40 <Dave from B™> haha
16:39:02 <Cooper> wow
16:39:06 <Cooper> nice storm on Lake View
16:39:28 <Cooper> very nice, nice 3H Squall
16:41:42 <Cooper> oh Theree Wise Wo(men), what other tricks do you have up your great sleeves of Wisdom?
16:43:25 <Lori S> Were is this 2x?
16:43:50 <Katie> Right next to the cycle button
16:43:51 <Cooper> to the right of Cycle, which is about 1/2 way from the left at the top of the static box
16:44:37 <Lori S> Nothing right of Cycle on mine
16:45:04 <Cooper> it is in TINY LIGHT Blue righting
16:45:10 <Cooper> I had to zoom in to see it
16:45:22 <Katie> writing, Cooper, writing ;)
16:45:25 <Katie> or print
16:48:35 <Dave from B™> Houston businessman is trying to bet 10,000,000 on Houston to win the world Series...he must be loaded
16:48:56 <Cooper> Dave, where are you seeing this?
16:50:11 <Dave from B™> It's on my ESPN app. He's actually trying to counter a promotion he has going on at his store, where if you bought a mattress within a certain time frame it is free if Houston wins the World Series....he's hedging his bet so to speak.
16:50:46 <Cooper> huh
16:50:58 <Cooper> nice for him I guess?
16:50:59 <Dave from B™> If he is able to find the action...$10 million will result in 21-22 million in profit
16:51:22 <Cooper> that is a lot of money
16:52:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Those hotels on the Strip didn't get that way taking Dave's $2 blackjack bets.
16:52:42 <Dave from B™> You got that right
16:53:02 <Lori S> Dave from B™ and CraigC, what do you think of Jaycos?
16:53:56 <Dave from B™> I think that is what Craig has but not positive. I'm the wrong person to ask. Eric is a seasoned camper guy. He might have an opnion
16:54:04 <Katie> I'm not Dave or Craig, but I think Jaycos are the best bang for the buck. there are others with far more character, though, if money isn't an object.
16:54:30 <Dave from B™> Well put, Katie. That has been what I've heard about Jayco
16:54:59 <Lori S> Money is most certainly an object. We were interested in Highland RV Mesa Ridge until we saw the Jayco Whitehawk
16:55:06 <CraigC> agree with Katie, if I had more money I would probably go with the Rockwood
16:56:10 <Lori S> Haven't heard of Rockwood
16:57:15 <Lori S> We almost put down a downpayment but wisely chose to find a spot to park it in West before we did. Nuthin
16:57:26 <Katie> I think we looked at 50 different travel trailers before we bought our Jayco. I had my heart sorta set on a Forest River R-Pod, but the price point of the Jaycos won out.
16:58:00 <Lori S> We were impressed with the construction, though the salesman had something to do with that I am sure
16:58:40 <Lori S> Any common issues with Jayco?
17:00:52 <Eric> Hey Lori
17:00:59 <Katie> Not that I've heard of, Lori. But I would search model-specific on the webs and discussion forums
17:01:31 <Lori S> Katie, Sunds good. I will look for those.
17:01:38 <Lori S> *sounds
17:01:44 <Lori S> Hi Eric
17:01:44 <Dave from B™> It is AMAZING how much you can find out about your model on the web. FB Travato group has been a lifesaver for us.
17:02:28 <Lori S> Eric, look away... My cheeseburger has arrived! I am quite hungry.
17:03:06 <Eric> yummm
17:03:45 <Eric> I just saw the first actual randomized trial on red meat and it show no significant impact on your health
17:03:56 <Eric> Which doesn't surprise me
17:04:14 <Dave from B™> It's about time!:)
17:04:18 <Lori S> Eric, No, it's the cheese and fries :p
17:04:32 <Dave from B™> hahaha
17:04:35 <Eric> Lots of good environmental reasons to not eat red meat...but health isn't one of them.
17:04:54 <Eric> ahhh, that I do stay away from :-P
17:04:55 <Dave from B™> I would agree with that, Eric. Besides, I like pork better anyway
17:05:11 <Eric> pork is just as bad for the environment
17:05:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Dead cows can't fart...
17:05:37 <Lori S> All things considered, I prefer my red meat to be Sockeye
17:05:40 <Eric> eating animals in general is a pretty detrimental at the volume we have to produce to feed so many people.
17:05:40 <Cooper> haha Kevin
17:05:43 <Dave from B™> There is a restaurant in Billings that makes the best fries...triple fried...they are so good. My wife and I have gone their and ordered fries and a bottle of wine. Now you know we are both crazy!!
17:06:12 <Cooper> Dave, I knew you were Crazy long before you told me that
17:06:23 <Eric> of my wifes favorite salads has fries as a base layer :-P
17:06:36 <Katie> I'm going to have a steak tonight to celebrate! (that was on the menu for tonight, anyway - "Dawg's Steaks from the Abyss" as he calls them, which is low-end steak with a jalapeno bacon cream sauce)
17:06:44 <Dave from B™> My wife's favorite go to dish is the Canadian favorite...poutine
17:07:08 <Eric> yummm, good steak is so crazy expensive around here though :-(
17:07:26 <Dave from B™> We eat a lot less meat than we used to.
17:07:33 <Katie> We use "cheap" steaks when he makes that recipe. Good steaks don't need all that!
17:07:37 <Eric> oh well, I am helping the environment :-P
17:07:57 <ynpvisitor105> :bee:
17:08:05 <Cooper> ?
17:08:12 <Eric> jalapeno bacon cream sauce and throw away the steak :-D
17:08:12 <Dave from B™> What's the Bee for?
17:08:24 <ynpvisitor105> 0=
17:08:32 <Cooper> ?
17:08:36 <Eric> they are playing with emoticons
17:08:40 <Cooper> oh
17:08:41 <Eric> probably coopers friend
17:08:44 <Cooper> now I get it
17:08:47 <Dave from B™> Cooper, is that your firend again?
17:08:53 <Cooper> Eric, which one?
17:08:55 <Eric> yeet
17:09:01 <Cooper> him
17:09:03 <Dave from B™> aka 20
17:09:18 <Cooper> oh
17:09:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't bacon dead pig?
17:09:39 <Cooper> yeah, the one who got the URL
17:09:41 <Dave from B™> Kevin, you got him!!
17:10:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Bacon makes everything better.
17:10:41 <Eric> nope, just some random person :-D
17:10:51 <Cooper> How do you know Eric?
17:11:03 <Cooper> he would be on a different IP address than at school
17:11:10 <Eric> I know
17:11:28 <Cooper> I guess I will trust you Eric
17:11:51 <Eric> Lion still puffing back there
17:12:05 <Eric> guess it's been over 6h
17:12:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Had a NG this morning.
17:12:31 <Eric> weird...anyone noticed the weird intervals on Lion recently?
17:12:59 <Eric> 6.5h ini then a single eruption after
17:13:14 <Eric> we are 10 minutes away from 6.5h
17:13:28 <Eric> hopefully we don't miss it during OF
17:13:40 <Eric> Yep, I caught and logged that NG Kevin :-D
17:14:20 <Eric> Lion is having weird behavior
17:14:26 <Cooper> Be Back in a few minutes
17:14:47 <Eric> Maybe another fall disturbance coming?
17:14:58 <Dave from B™> Just looked at my phone...didn't quite make it to 47 today...high of 39..ouch
17:15:03 <Dave from B™> Warmer at OF
17:15:22 <Eric> wow...didn't make it out of the 30s, thats getting cold
17:15:51 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
17:15:56 <Dave from B™> yep but increasing each day from here...70 by Monday
17:16:21 <Dave from B™> Eric, hope MSU is still after your daughter
17:17:15 <Eric> They keep trying :-P
17:17:43 <Eric> It's hard to compete with Princeton, MIT and Stanford though :-P
17:18:05 <Eric> Actually, she really likes University of Chicago, but their engineering is lacking
17:18:07 <Dave from B™> Those are all too far from YNP!! Use your influence man!
17:18:17 <Dave from B™> Wow...nice schools
17:18:27 <Dave from B™> We thought Stanford was "stuffy"
17:19:00 <Eric> They are all stuffy :-P When you get to that caliber of gets super competitive and "stuffy"
17:19:50 <Dave from B™> Wash U in St. Louis wasn't and they have a really good engineering program
17:20:14 <Eric> Yes, they have been bugging us a lot too
17:20:49 <Eric> She really likes harvey mudd down in California too, but doesn't want quite the small of a school (800 students!)
17:21:36 <Dave from B™> Are you touring any more schools?
17:22:13 <Lori S> Bob just texted me a SB steam phase photo from a couple hours ago. :)
17:22:23 <Eric> We are trying to, but between her work load, volunteering and application process, it is challenging
17:23:06 <Eric> She knows about what size she wants, she needs to settle down on what she wants to study and we will make another trip.
17:24:10 <Lori S> I changed my major multiple times, even a year before graduating
17:24:14 <Eric> If she gets into these schools she is shooting for, we will force a trip to the top 3 and go from there.
17:24:18 <Dave from B™> If you are going to the Midwest, I would recommend stopping in St. louis. It put us back about 5 years in retirement but it was a good school for Taylor
17:24:39 <Eric> :thumbsup:
17:24:57 <Eric> We are in OF window camop
17:25:40 <Lori S> Do we have a Cam Op?
17:25:50 <Eric> yes
17:25:57 <Eric> good timing
17:26:35 <Eric> all this big preplay could stall it out though
17:27:45 <Lori S> So the dude that got burned, was it IN OF?
17:28:06 <Dave from B™> We should know in about 6 months
17:28:17 <Lori S> Dave from B™, ah
17:28:48 <Dave from B™> I guess preplay could have got him
17:28:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Right now I am doing it but I have to feed chickens and get supper ready so this will be the view unless another camop can take it.
17:28:56 <Eric> OF
17:28:59 <Lori S> if he wasn't to drunk to recall anyway
17:29:24 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kevin. When does GO MAN return?
17:29:52 <Eric> Nice column on static
17:30:10 <Eric> Not sure...but his SW pics are cool
17:30:43 <Dave from B™> They have been. I see you want to walk the plank at Canyonlands:)
17:31:10 <Eric> oh, I so want to spend a month hiking through Utah!
17:31:20 <Eric> sign me up!
17:31:41 <Eric> So different than my native trees/mountains
17:31:43 <Dave from B™> Me, too and bike as well
17:32:52 <Eric> I watched a documentary/movie on that really long through hike in Utah
17:33:10 <Eric> Can't remember the name, but it was interesting
17:33:23 <Eric> I would probably rather drive from section to section....I hate road hiking
17:33:27 <Dave from B™> I want to do the bottom 2/3 of Angels's Landing
17:33:42 <Eric> haha...I would do the whole thing in a heartbeat
17:33:43 <Dave from B™> Maybe the Narrows
17:33:51 <Eric> narrows look awesome too
17:33:58 <Eric> I love slot canyons
17:34:01 <Dave from B™> Nope....not going to catch me past Scout Lookout
17:34:07 <Eric> haha
17:35:15 <Eric> This hike is only about 2 hours from my house:
17:35:37 <Dave from B™> I will probably return to Zion and Bryce with the van before trying the other Utah parks.
17:35:46 <Eric> haven't done it...but on my list
17:35:48 <Dave from B™> Bryce has some cool trails as well
17:36:12 <Eric> anyone here a camop? Can they login and spin it back to the hill?
17:36:30 <Eric> Kevin is out feeding his chickens and gave permission
17:36:34 <Katie> Okay
17:36:40 <Eric> Thanks Katie
17:36:41 <Dave from B™> Did Joe finally fall asleep?
17:36:53 <Dave from B™> Thanks Katie
17:36:55 <Eric> I am curious if lion will keep up it's 6.5h intervals
17:38:05 <Eric> Thanks
17:39:44 <Cooper> Eric, she looking at all into Colorado School of Mines, or not
17:40:59 <Katie> G'night, all.
17:41:06 <Cooper> Night Katie
17:41:47 <Lori S> Night Katie. WB Cooper
17:42:16 <Cooper> Thx Lori
17:43:45 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out as well. Have a great evening everyone! BTW, CO School of Mines is about 80% male....might be too much testosterone for your daughter:)
17:44:17 <Cooper> Dave, true, lots of annoying college guys up there
17:44:21 <Cooper> including my brother
17:44:37 <Lori S> Night Dave
17:44:42 <Lori S> Cooper, Oh my
17:44:47 <Dave from B™> One of Taylor's classmates went there. It is a good school
17:45:15 <Cooper> I know, I am being meant to my brother, he does not care, but truly he is an anoying college kid
17:45:20 <Cooper> Dave, nice
17:45:41 <Lori S> Cooper, Runs in the family does it? ;) JK
17:45:51 <Cooper> It does:)
17:52:35 <Kevin L™🌵> My Brother in Law went to Colorado School of Mines. He loved it.
17:53:02 <Cooper> what was his degree?
17:54:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Narrows at Zion is a must hike if you can. I went in my late 20's and it was awesome but almost killed me. Thankfully I was able to soak in a warm tub and had a soft bed at my Aunt's place.
17:55:53 <Kevin L™🌵> He was a chemical engineer. He makes rocket fuel oxidizer and air bag propellant along with fire extinguisher powder.
17:56:08 <Cooper> WOW! Nice
17:56:45 <LindaG> Wow cam is down, so it was a dream
17:57:01 <Cooper> Hi Linda
17:57:03 <Cooper> Yup
17:57:04 <KittyM> Oh no :(
17:57:05 <Cooper> Dream
17:57:30 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
17:57:49 <LindaG> Hello lori hello 😀
17:57:59 <LindaG> How long down?
17:59:10 <Cooper> Linda, comes up for a few mins, goes down for a while
17:59:15 <Lori S> It's been doing the up and down since I got on at least
17:59:32 <LindaG> 🤔
17:59:40 <Cooper> I wonder what it is this time
18:00:16 <LindaG> They were saying a problem with pixelcaster earlier
18:00:33 <Cooper> hmm'
18:00:45 <Cooper> I wonder if NPS knows it has been going up and down like this
18:00:47 <LindaG> I think that was today
18:00:57 <LindaG> Emails were sent
18:01:15 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
18:09:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like a Centrylink issue this time.
18:11:13 <LindaG> Oh ok
18:54:32 <Cooper> OF
18:54:39 <Cooper> Pretty
18:56:46 <ynpvisitor98> It is
18:59:08 <LindaG> Seems to be down for the count
18:59:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
19:00:47 <LindaG> 😊
19:00:58 <Cooper> on static? or live?
19:01:17 <Kevin L™🌵> GT
19:01:24 <Cooper> oh

19:09:04 <Cooper> Hi Graham
19:09:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> Good to see it cam erupt even if i dont encourage it
19:09:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> Hello from Big Bend NP
19:09:32 <Kevin L™🌵> bout time you showed up.
19:10:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Should be toasty warm.
19:10:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> i bet Ryan isnt happy it didnt wait a day
19:10:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> At least it was in daylight
19:10:53 <Kevin L™🌵> From the cb description it sounded great.
19:11:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> It was 97 at the river today but just 80s in the mountains and 60s at night
19:12:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Should still be some rattling snakes around with those temps.
19:13:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> Nice to see Steve and Lori there, and many others
19:13:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> There was a tarantula on the window at the gift shop
19:14:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Doesn't surprise me.
19:16:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> Maybe SB will lime up for Will on Sunday
19:17:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> Goodnight. Watching the stars now
19:17:10 <Cooper> Night Graham
19:17:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight Graham.
19:17:37 <Cooper> SB is quite sour, makes sense why it would Lime up for sunday:p
19:22:58 <ynpvisitor3> Anybody able to drive the cam??
19:23:22 <LindaGt> I havent tried to sign in
19:23:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I have it now but can release
19:24:21 <Kevin L™🌵> It is released.
19:24:27 <LindaGt> If it's down I won't t be able to sign in
19:24:30 <ynpvisitor3> I was just curious, tks
19:24:48 <Kevin L™🌵> controls are working
19:24:57 <LindaGt> I'm waiting for opportunity
19:25:03 <ynpvisitor3> Good
19:25:08 <LindaGt> Ok ok I'll try
19:25:59 <LindaGt> Ok I signed in. Didnt realize controls were up.
19:31:33 <ynpvisitor3> I can see the INN and Ranger station Radios and the control stream, Pixilcaster must have broke along the way
19:33:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Seems that once one problem is solved another pops up.
19:34:10 <ynpvisitor3> Linda, when you are done for the night, can you park it in night view screen?
19:35:52 <LindaGp> Yes, which one do you want? Grand to beehive or castle to lion?
19:36:13 <ynpvisitor3> I am recording the control stream so if anything pops up I might catch it
19:36:33 <ynpvisitor3> Castle to lion, please
19:37:05 <LindaGp> 👍 getting dark so it will be soon
19:37:40 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
19:37:43 <ynpvisitor3> OK Have fun, I'll be back soon
19:38:13 <LindaGp> Ok
19:39:34 <LindaGp> Bulger
19:55:41 <LindaGp> Really dark out there. I'll try to wait for grand
20:00:33 <Kevin L™🌵> At least the sky is clear.
20:01:20 <LindaGp> True, if grand erupts ill see it no problem
20:03:59 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, hows the weather by you?
20:09:55 <LindaGp> At least i think I'll see grand
20:10:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Weather is warm but not hot. It was 59° when I went to the Dr this morning.
20:11:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand had an interval of around 7h30m today.
20:12:24 <LindaGp> 59 is chilly.
20:12:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. I turned on the heat in the car.
20:12:53 <LindaGp> Yeah I saw that. It's really dark. Wow
20:14:41 <LindaGp> How the heck can Joe see anything at night
20:16:54 <LindaGp> Well I'm out
20:17:08 <LindaGp> Too dark for me
20:17:35 <Kevin L™🌵> For sure
20:17:53 <Kevin L™🌵> At least we are getting more moon now.
20:19:30 <LindaGp> We've been having warm weather but I think Friday it's going to cool down some
20:20:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I am hoping it cools enough to go to Rainbow Canyon soon.
20:21:29 <LindaGp> That sounds nice
20:22:02 <LindaGp> I went to a refuge today it was a gorgeous day, dis some birding
20:22:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Need to have the rattling snakes sleeping first.
20:23:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I had quail in my backyard today when I fed the chickens.
20:23:08 <LindaGp> Oh yeah that would be good
20:23:48 <LindaGp> Oh I'm jealous
20:23:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Rainbow has some interesting birds. Lot of beaver dams making ponds so you even get some water fowl.
20:24:34 <LindaGp> I'll have to Google it
20:25:19 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some birds that feed on the shrimp when dry lake puddles. They are about the size of quail with legs about 9" long.
20:25:23 <LindaGp> I'll send you some pics of refuge
20:25:57 <LindaGp> What color?
20:26:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Almost a black.
20:27:41 <LindaGp> Not sure
20:27:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Pahranagat lakes are also interesting. You never know what will be there. Lot of geese but I have seen massive numbers of swan. We counted over 500 on one picture I took.
20:28:35 <Kevin L™🌵>
20:30:42 <LindaGp> I sent some pics
20:31:56 <LindaGp> Thats interesting a sort if oasis
20:32:12 <LindaGp> *of
20:32:31 <Kevin L™🌵> I was looking at them. Interesting area.
20:33:27 <Kevin L™🌵> At Pahranagat you can take a picture toward the lake and it looks lush and green. Spin 180° and it is dry desert!
20:33:41 <LindaGp> Its an 8 mile dike that goes out through the marsh that can be driven
20:34:40 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, that is amazing really
20:35:07 <Kevin L™🌵> My Uncle used to do bird studies at Zion. They still use some of the pictures he took in the 80's and earlier.
20:36:21 <LindaGp> Oh wow cool. What was his name?
20:36:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Jerome Gifford.
20:38:40 <LindaGp> Nice!
20:39:22 <Kevin L™🌵> He was a ranger at Zion park for a long time.
20:39:28 <LindaGp> That's amazing that your family had the zion property.
20:40:09 <LindaGp> Did he grow up there?
20:40:13 <Kevin L™🌵> It was cut out of the same piece that Jerome had. I guess I am 1/3 owner in it now.
20:40:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.
20:40:37 <Kevin L™🌵> My mother was also born in Springdale.
20:40:55 <LindaGp> Cool
20:41:27 <LindaGp> Did you spend a lot of time there?
20:41:45 <LindaGp> I didnt make it there last year
20:42:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Very long history there. Bot sides were original white settlers in southern Utah.
20:42:51 <ynpvisitor46> Must be a full moon, it is still light out.
20:42:54 <LindaGp> Thats neat that your family goes thay far back
20:42:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't made it up there for a bit but I have a feeling I will be doing some projects soon.
20:43:34 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor46, 😊
20:44:08 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, about 4-5 hours from you?
20:44:32 <LindaGp> Oh i guess it's closer than that
20:44:51 <Kevin L™🌵> We do have some pictures of the farms in the canyon.
20:44:59 <Kevin L™🌵> It is about 3 hours
20:46:00 <LindaGp> That's not too bad
20:47:48 <LindaGp> Well have a good night, time for bed
20:48:27 <Kevin L™🌵> We plan to fix the house up as a rental and then figure out what to do on the other parcel.
20:48:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight.
20:48:46 <LindaGp> That will make some money
20:49:22 <Kevin L™🌵> If it pays the taxes we will be happy now.
20:50:08 <LindaGp> Syntaxes, yeah hopefully it will cover that and a little more.
20:50:28 <LindaGp> *ah taxes
20:50:51 <LindaGp> don't know what autocorrect is doing sometimes
20:51:12 <LindaGp> Have a good night
20:57:55 <ynpvisitor54> Cam is down?
20:58:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
20:58:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Appears to be Centurylink issue.
20:58:24 <ynpvisitor54> I thought those days were over...
20:58:41 <ynpvisitor54> Thanks for info
20:58:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Different problem, same result.
21:05:39 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess Graham is happy now.
