06:43:34 <CraigC> gorgeous
06:43:42 <CraigC> hey Joe, how are you
06:43:54 <CraigC> "some jerk with a flashlight"
06:44:28 <Joe> :) doing fine, and you
06:44:54 <CraigC> good, thanks
06:45:25 <CraigC> still choppy?
06:46:50 <Joe> A little bit, and slow after you try to change position
06:47:09 <Joe> It is all yours
06:47:20 <CraigC> I played with it a little last evening before Gary got on, it was pretty bad
06:47:49 <CraigC> even the cam view froze up
06:48:00 <CraigC> I saw maybe 2 frames of Grand
06:49:16 <Joe> I hope they can find the problem, IT looks so many things
06:50:26 <CraigC> where is the number for sending out beehive text? I looked thru all the initial docs
06:50:33 <Joe> Is that bee steam or indy
06:50:52 <Joe> just bee
06:54:28 <Joe> I have no idea what is up next, too dark last night, I wish they would adjust the night mode
06:56:23 <CraigC> I'll just pan a little back and forth watching for Daisy, Bee and Aurum
07:06:29 <LindaG> Good morning
07:06:40 <CraigC> hey linda
07:06:55 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
07:07:05 <CraigC> AL
07:07:16 <CraigC> no, AB
07:18:30 <CraigC> looks like steam emitting from 2 sources back in grotto area
07:34:25 <CraigC> bulger
07:36:10 <Cooper> looks like YNP, my house, and my ski areas got a dust inf last night:)
07:41:05 <CraigC> old tardy
07:41:09 <TomK> Good morning
07:41:14 <CraigC> hey Tom
07:41:53 <TomK> I have some unplanned chores this morning and will likely be late for my shift.
07:42:18 <CraigC> ok, I might park it on OF, I need to take a load to the green waste
07:42:45 <TomK> Can someone take over until I get back?
07:43:29 <CraigC> I'll ask whoever comes in before I leave
07:43:47 <TomK> Thanks
07:44:09 <TomK> I'll be back ASAP
07:44:14 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:46:41 <CraigC> aurum
07:46:59 <Cooper> .
07:46:59 <Cooper> .
07:47:00 <Joe> AURUM
07:47:00 <Cooper> .
07:54:11 <Cooper> Wish me luck fishing in sub 45F temperatures
07:57:43 <CraigC> AL
07:59:38 <CraigC> wonder if Turban
08:01:00 <CraigC> 2 of the vents
08:13:58 <CraigC> of
08:15:15 <RyanAtOF> Walking out to Lion.
08:15:35 <RyanAtOF> Little Squirt is IE.
08:15:42 <CraigC> RyanAtOF, :thumbsup:
08:15:51 <RyanAtOF> BH looks mostly dead.
08:16:28 <CraigC> RyanAtOF, thanks for the LS heads up
08:23:09 <CraigC> hey Kent
08:23:20 <Kent> Isn't this the way the previous problems started? Jerkyness. Any thoughts. I sa Vance was working on it, but it is sorta strange to be happening again.
08:23:32 <Kent> Morning Craig.
08:23:58 <CraigC> no idea, cam screen is choppy and slow, also... but not as bad as public view
08:25:26 <Kent> My cam was always a bit choppy as compared to the public.
08:25:38 <Kent> control cam
08:26:40 <Kent> There has got to be a WebCamologist who knows about theses sorts of things?
08:26:47 <CraigC> south bubbler spitting a litt;e
08:27:52 <CraigC> I don't know the stuff, but sounds like there are too many factors with different people needing to coordinate better
08:28:54 <Kent> Current problem is livable. I hope it doesn't go down hill. Strange that the cams starts out fine and then develops problems.
08:29:27 <CraigC> yeah
08:29:53 <CraigC> I had hoped to put more on the predictions board
08:30:14 <CraigC> not doing so well this am
08:30:42 <Kent> Perhaps Jim will be back from Africa next year. He performed a good service every morning.
08:31:10 <CraigC> the geysers respected him more? :)
08:33:55 <Kent> Out early every morning on foot. Public service a good thing.
08:34:24 <Joe> I think they are leaning on it being a bandwidth issue as they have turned down the frame/bit rate down to almost nothing. I personally think that is not the issue. that being said I cannot pin anything down as the main issue
08:35:10 <CraigC> daisy
08:35:45 <Kent> That's a good one for the VC
08:38:01 <CraigC> AL
08:39:18 <Kent> I sure you've noticed Joe, but the other night a 0200 with no one in the park and even fewer people using their phones the cam was still doing this same thing.
08:39:53 <Kent> Phone service was much improved though. Two not connected?
08:41:03 <Joe> the new radio (the part that I can see) appears to be working properly, the status shows it has been up for 16 days 12 hours with no loss of sync.
08:41:28 <Joe> Yes Kent I have noticed that
08:41:59 <Kent> That is interesting. Problem with the PixelPeople?
08:42:42 <RyanAtOF> No ice on BW at BH.
08:42:57 <Kent> :thumbsup:
08:43:26 <RyanAtOF> Do y'all have a better eye on what's down basin?
08:43:39 <CraigC> maybe grotto
08:44:01 <CraigC> daisy just erupted
08:44:06 <RyanAtOF> OK. I can't see the cam on the phone.
08:44:20 <Joe> The pixel people only handle the public stream along with Century link, the control stream is not touched bu pixelcaster
08:44:22 <CraigC> sprinkler is erupting :)
08:44:25 <RyanAtOF> I'm at BH all the way to the right at the railing.
08:44:31 <RyanAtOF> Orange coat.
08:44:54 <Joe> see you
08:44:55 <CraigC> wave
08:45:01 <RyanAtOF> I can wave lol
08:45:09 <Joe> :)
08:45:15 <Kent> Didn't Dave say Vance or Vince from Pixel was tweaking it?
08:45:26 <CraigC> saw you wave
08:45:38 <CraigC> who else is there
08:46:24 <RyanAtOF> Yay! Trying to figure out if down basin is riverside
08:46:36 <Joe> Yes, I think Dave gave Vance access to the camera controls to adjust and try to find a solution.
08:46:46 <CraigC> RyanAtOF, nope
08:47:18 <CraigC> grotto area and Spasmodic putting out lots of steam
08:47:26 <RyanAtOF> Dan Williams and a friend of mine
08:47:50 <CraigC> maybe turban
08:48:47 <CraigC> some steam from either Giant area or Spa
08:49:15 <Joe> Craig, if you have to leave at 9, I can take the cam until TK gets back
08:49:29 <CraigC> Joe, cool, thanks
08:49:40 <Joe> np
08:49:54 <CraigC> I need to check again what time they open
08:50:25 <Kent> Was Mrs. T at OF or did the weather keep her away? I didn't hear.
08:50:50 <Joe> cancelled due to weather
08:51:14 <Kent> Thanks, just curious.
08:51:23 <CraigC> RyanAtOF, you're missing Marmot Cave
08:52:08 <Kent> Wapiti wolf pack reported behind the Lodge on a carcass. Would be nice to get a look.
08:52:18 <Joe> She was in Jackson and took a river raft trip with some fourth graders
08:52:33 <Joe> on Thursday
08:57:35 <Kent> Taken the fence down?
08:58:33 <CraigC> Joe, wanna take it?
08:59:09 <Kent> To work. Thanks guys.
08:59:28 <Joe> OK Craig got it
09:00:32 <ynpvisitor115> wow, West entrance still packed!
09:01:50 <ynpvisitor...> My word!
09:02:48 <ynpvisitor115> all the west-east routes are still closed (except the north side)
09:03:08 <ynpvisitor115> and south entrance
09:03:59 <ynpvisitor...> West Entrance heading into the park an OLD image :(
09:05:13 <ynpvisitor115> that makes better sense
09:05:59 <ynpvisitor115> date stamp says 9:04am today
09:06:15 <ynpvisitor115> fake pic (?, lol)
09:07:30 <ynpvisitor...> I think the lines are valid just not the view of traffic on the other side of the gate :)
09:15:59 <RyanAtOF> Lion is very happy
09:16:03 <RyanAtOF> Lion is happy
09:16:41 <RyanAtOF> I missed marmot cave several times now.
09:17:03 <RyanAtOF> Is the Norris canyon road also still closed?
09:17:37 <ynpvisitor...> Norris to Canyon is the last I have
09:17:50 <ynpvisitor...> Still closed
09:18:27 <RyanAtOF> Ok.
09:18:40 <RyanAtOF> So much for today's plans
09:19:18 <ynpvisitor...> Give the plows a chance.
09:22:39 <Joe> Lost everything
09:23:13 <Joe> up again
09:23:45 <RyanAtOF> I'm supposed to go to Cody lol
09:26:42 <Joe> Sylvan Pass is also closed
09:29:35 <CraigC> thanks, Joe, got my load taken to the green waste dump
09:29:59 <CraigC> only 3 or 4 or 5 more this season
09:30:25 <Joe> Ah! good
09:30:25 <CraigC> old tardy
09:31:07 <CraigC> Joe, glad you got to make it to see Bulger already today and back
09:31:28 <CraigC> ;)
09:32:40 <Joe> Yep flew in, the pass was c
09:32:48 <Joe> losed, Thanks
09:34:41 <Joe> The cam was down while my helicopter hovered so I did not get caught :)
09:36:14 <Joe> do you want the cam back
09:36:17 <CraigC> LOL
09:36:22 <CraigC> ok
09:36:37 <Joe> good
09:36:59 <Joe> You pay better attention than I
09:38:07 <Joe> oops I forgot to switch to OF
09:39:03 <CraigC> I did... in an hour or so it will show on public view
09:39:15 <JarnoO> same old story again?
09:40:00 <Joe> Hi JarnoO yes
09:40:12 <JarnoO> sigh...
09:41:15 <Joe> A geyser
09:42:59 <JarnoO> makes me wonder if some kind of power supply is faulty, causing electrical equipment connected to it to slowly deteriorate
09:44:02 <Joe> Moon illumination tonight is 49% just about where the cam starts seeing agin
09:44:33 <Joe> again *
09:45:46 <Joe> hand sitting on enter on numeric pad :)
09:45:50 <JarnoO> lol
09:45:58 <CraigC> ;)
09:47:23 <ynpvisitor...> Moon ought to be well up in the sky by sunset. Now if the clouds will stay away.
09:55:47 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
09:55:52 <CraigC> hey Kevin
09:55:59 <Kevin L™> Hi.
09:56:28 <Kevin L™> I see cam is still working like normal. :P
09:56:43 <CraigC> ha
09:56:52 <ynpvisitor...> Yes, abnormally
09:58:05 <Kevin L™> Making biscuits & gravy. Just checking and watching the Chama train leave.
10:09:23 <CraigC> at least we have gazers in the basin so we know we aren't missing eruptions
10:16:00 <ynpvisitor56> The hill is closed
10:16:13 <ynpvisitor115> West entrance cam updating and showing that it's still packed; are they restricting traffic flow into the park?
10:16:13 <CraigC> ???
10:16:50 <ynpvisitor56> Cold
10:17:02 <ynpvisitor115> into the park cam, not updating; last pic 9/18
10:17:46 <ynpvisitor4> Summer is over, probably only one ticket taker.
10:18:19 <ynpvisitor115> all lanes full
10:19:11 <ynpvisitor4> stream working on nps page.
10:21:47 <CraigC> NPS was 25 second delay from when I moved the cam
10:22:52 <ynpvisitor4> Summer is over, no one put cones out saying only one lane open.
10:23:36 <ynpvisitor4> All i see here, is a circle x
10:23:40 <ynpvisitor56> And beehive is being mean
10:23:51 <CraigC> ynpvisitor4, refresh it
10:24:22 <ynpvisitor4> Circle x
10:24:44 <CraigC> hmmm, it is streaming
10:24:47 <ynpvisitor4> nps works fine
10:25:28 <ynpvisitor4> network error message
10:25:31 <CraigC> just changed view, tell me when it shows
10:25:37 <CraigC> on nps
10:25:49 <CraigC> grand to beehive
10:26:36 <ynpvisitor4> nope, can not see both windows at the same time. So time is irrelevant.
10:27:32 <ynpvisitor115> Craig, normal 25 sec delay
10:27:46 <CraigC> ynpvisitor115, because of no Flash?
10:28:07 <ynpvisitor115> NPS streaming with hitches
10:28:48 <ynpvisitor4> it was not that long for me
10:28:50 <ynpvisitor115> Eric mentioned once that it has to do w/the packet system; only chat real time
10:30:31 <ynpvisitor4> NPS down
10:30:49 <ynpvisitor115> ynp4 - 4 lanes full at the W entrance; they funnel them to one ticket taker after the gates?
10:30:52 <ynpvisitor4> up, move, down
10:31:41 <ynpvisitor4> It is nps, not disney. Anything is possible. They closed Norris and I bet you can not find a reservation at madison.
10:32:43 <ynpvisitor4> down again. Better things to do.
10:43:54 <CraigC> riverside
10:51:47 <Tomk> Here I come to save the day!
10:52:23 <CraigC> cool
10:52:27 <CraigC> all yours
10:52:41 <Tomk> Anything I should know?
10:52:55 <Tomk> ty for covering
10:53:00 <CraigC> daisy and grand up, turban was entered at 1038
10:53:19 <CraigC> lion had lots of roars throughout the morning
10:53:34 <CraigC> Joe covered while I went to the dump
10:54:06 <CraigC> Aurum 1100 to noonish or so
10:54:07 <Joe> Riverside
10:54:37 <CraigC> daisy
10:54:41 <Joe> oops i was asleep, I guess
10:55:11 <CraigC> scratch that on Aurum, my math was bad
10:55:30 <CraigC> around 1ish
10:58:08 <Tomk> Grand to BH in view
10:59:06 <Tomk> OF window in 5 min
11:00:31 <CraigC> Kent reported earlier of wolves feeding on carcass behind lodge, but we couldnt see anything
11:01:19 <Tomk> Volunteer feed not working?
11:01:41 <CraigC> huh
11:01:41 <Tomk> look behind lodge, then OF window
11:14:42 <ynpvisitor...> I rechecked. Report was carcass back behind the Lodge on the 3rd and that it had been consumed. It is still good to know the Wapitis are in the area.
11:26:58 <ynpvisitor30> where did that GT Great Fountain prediction come from? Did someone enter a time and then it was deleted?
11:28:52 <ynpvisitor30> that is a definite glitch in the GT system
11:30:38 <ynpvisitor30> did Kent only spend one day in the park?
11:41:09 <ynpvisitor...> Two full days, Tuesday & Wednesday.
11:51:22 <Joe> Lion
11:52:48 <ynpvisitor...> Lion is a real jerk :)
11:54:00 <Joe> I wonder when this will fail completely ?
11:54:29 <ynpvisitor...> Not good indications
11:59:33 <ynpvisitor...> I've seen Aurum erupt about 4 times through the trees :)
12:02:55 <Joe> Grand
12:03:38 <ynpvisitor...> It's like flipping flash cards----slowly
12:09:51 <GO DELTA> Afternoon
12:10:13 <Joe> Hi Graham
12:10:39 <GO DELTA> Hello

12:14:51 <Joe> Headed back home?
12:15:30 <GO DELTA> Yes. Had a good trip, fun wedding and lots of good parks
12:15:53 <Joe> Great, sounds good
12:16:02 <GO DELTA> White Sands, Big Bend, Carlsbad Caverns, and Guadeloupe Mountains
12:16:45 <Joe> WOW, that is a lot
12:16:58 <Joe> INDY
12:17:09 <CraigC> bout time
12:17:24 <CraigC> no gazers
12:17:43 <CraigC> one just ran up
12:19:14 <Joe> text sent
12:19:40 <ynpvisitor73> Thanks for the text
12:21:04 <Joe> I'll bet there is a fast walk from Grand
12:27:51 <Joe> :bee::bee::bee:
12:28:47 <ynpvisitor38> Bee with hitches; still nice
12:35:37 <ynpvisitor44> :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown: :( Late for the party
12:58:18 <Tomk> time for me to leave, grasshopper
12:59:14 <Joe> Bye TomK I'll take it now
13:30:41 <CraigC> is that a creature this side of Spasmodic?
13:31:20 <Joe> Bison
13:31:28 <CraigC> gnu?
13:31:31 <CraigC> ;)
13:32:01 <Joe> and biped
13:32:24 <CraigC> got another load filled up and took to the green waste dump
13:32:26 <Joe> both creatures
13:36:07 <Joe> takes 5 seconds from button press to camera move
13:36:20 <CraigC> :(
13:39:29 <Joe> Grotto?
13:39:52 <CraigC> looks like it
14:01:27 <Cooper> afternoon everyone
14:05:31 <Cooper> Bulger
14:08:48 <Cooper> .
14:08:49 <Cooper> .
14:08:49 <JarnoO> Aurum
14:08:50 <Cooper> .
14:08:50 <JarnoO> .
14:08:50 <Cooper> .
14:08:56 <Cooper> Hi Jarno
14:09:16 <JarnoO> afternoon Cooper
14:14:49 <Kevin L™> It figures.
14:15:39 <Joe> yep, just missed it
14:16:02 <Kevin L™> BH too.
14:16:06 <Cooper> Castle
14:16:09 <Cooper> 1412 ns
14:32:32 <Joe1> Aurum camera chop and all :)
14:34:57 <Cooper> Thanks Joe
14:48:09 <Teri> Joe - tks for the Aurum link!; I saw the end and thought it might be Little Cub; dl'd the vid
15:25:34 <Joe> Bulger
15:50:18 <Joe> OT ie
16:17:21 <CraigC> snowing now? wowow
16:18:03 <Joe> Yes, a nice day :)
16:18:18 <CraigC> is it snowing at your home?
16:18:28 <Joe> completlyno
16:18:45 <Joe> 53 deg now
16:18:54 <CraigC> about the same here
16:19:49 <Joe> I don't know where that word completly cam from
16:19:59 <Joe> came
16:20:04 <CraigC> LOL
16:45:29 <Cooper> Riverside
16:51:36 <CraigC> Joe, you doing ok, or do you need a break?
16:52:11 <Joe> I'm good Craig thanks
16:56:29 <CraigC> weird day, went from decent to snowy back to decent
16:56:51 <Cooper> Sounds Like Colorado:):p
16:57:05 <Cooper> from 0F to 70F in 2.361 Seconds:p
16:57:30 <Joe> This 1 frame per second rate is driving me nuttier than i already am
16:58:21 <Joe> I know it is not that low but it seems like it
17:03:54 <CraigC> it's frustrating, because it has been subpar for way too long
17:04:31 <Cooper> Joe, you are very smart, do you know what is wrong with the cam right now? and how to/when they are fixing it?
17:08:30 <Joe> there are a few issues with this camera/radio I need more time to analyze, If they would boost the frame rate a bit it would help, bandwidth is not the issue here, they can run the same frame rate as the old cam.
17:09:25 <Cooper> thanks
17:24:07 <Cooper> Hi Michael
17:24:25 <Michael> Hi Cooper
17:41:51 <Michael> OF in slo-mo.
17:42:38 <Cooper> O o o o o o l l ll l l d F a i t h fffff uu llll?:p
17:42:48 <Teri> nice view of the cone; stop action, lol
17:43:25 <Teri> cool lighting, sun on the background, wind to the north (!)
17:44:10 <Teri> and the cam is down
17:45:10 <Michael> Looking forward to G g g r r a a a aa n n n d d.
17:45:24 <Cooper> yyy ee s
17:45:43 <Teri> like Bugs and the Roadrunner
17:50:11 <Cooper> D AA I S Y
17:50:29 <Cooper> Maybe
17:50:35 <Cooper> haha
17:50:49 <Cooper> that was castle steam that I thought was from Daisy:)
17:52:02 <Michael> Would have been easier to tell if it was moving faster.
17:52:22 <Cooper> yup
18:04:57 <Michael> daisy forreal.
18:05:26 <Cooper> haha Michael:p Kdding
18:15:34 <CraigC> Old tardy maybe
18:15:51 <CraigC> maybe twilight spring steam
18:16:03 <Michael> Looks like quiet steam to me.
18:16:24 <CraigC> yup
18:23:23 <Michael> Bison going for a drink
18:27:11 <Joe> Grand
18:35:37 <Cooper> nice
18:41:42 <Michael> Time for Aurum...I hope.
18:42:26 <Joe> we can watch it for 22 min
19:04:14 <Michael> Oh well. Time's up.
19:04:47 <Cooper> Michael, bye
19:12:28 <Cooper> OF
19:41:42 <ynpvisitor99> This is good light. GO MOON!
20:09:22 <ynpvisitor69> This is good light?
20:09:47 <ynpvisitor99> It was
20:10:27 <ynpvisitor69> I was so hopeful, seeing your comment
20:11:17 <ynpvisitor69> Terrible cam feed, and no night settings either, so sad, considering a year ago we had a good, functional cam
20:11:49 <Cooper> makes me wonder if they are going to fix it again before Winter
20:12:47 <ynpvisitor69> All signs point to no
20:12:56 <Cooper> :(
20:24:19 <Cooper> goodnight
20:50:16 <ynpvisitor3> do they turn off Lodge lights in winter?
21:37:43 <ynpvisitor65> Something's going downbasin. Artemisia or Grotto probably.
