06:06:27 <CraigC> hey Joe, how are you
06:07:33 <Joe> I'm fine Craig, and how are you?
06:08:18 <Joe> Welcome to the fog, it is all yours :)
06:09:17 <CraigC> I'm blind, otherwise good, thanks :)
06:42:07 <Cooper> Morning All
06:51:23 <Cooper> Hi RIce
06:57:32 <Joe> Hello, I'm old Faithful, Can anybody see me?
06:57:50 <Cooper> Peek a Boo
06:59:10 <CraigC> Joe, surrealistic lighting
06:59:28 <Joe> yes!
07:01:46 <CraigC> some Genesis tunes are apropos
07:07:15 <CraigC> OF
07:08:33 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:09:35 <Dave from B™> A big temp spike in Tantulus this morning around 3-5
07:10:15 <CraigC> temp logger hasnt updatede yet
07:10:20 <Dave from B™> No noticeably volume change
07:12:56 <Dave from B™> noticeable*
07:16:25 <Rice> What features are close enough to the Tantulas Logger to cause a temp spike? Beside something big like SB
07:17:04 <ynpvisitor16> both basins drain into Tantalus
07:18:43 <Dave from B™> We'll have a better idea when loggers download shortly
07:18:45 <Rice> Here is the location of the gage: https://waterdata.usgs.gov/monitoring-location/06036940/
07:19:33 <Rice> change to satellite view give a good reference.
07:20:45 <CraigC> temp logger has usually loaded by now
07:21:28 <ynpvisitor16> CraigC, everything else updated
07:22:31 <CraigC> hmmm
07:27:20 <Dave from B™> Wow....minor was so large it knocked out the logger:D
07:27:41 <ynpvisitor104> we will drop to 48 SB eruptions in the last year if it desnt go before 1616
07:29:22 <Cooper> How many are we at total for 2018 and 2019 so far?
07:29:25 <ynpvisitor104> steam plume on Washburn SE
07:30:10 <ynpvisitor104> 74 total, 42 this year
07:30:39 <Cooper> thanks
07:31:14 <ynpvisitor104> max in 12 month period hit 51
07:32:08 <Dave from B™> It's slowing down....MG should be talking about that pretty soon
07:32:48 <Cooper> Dave, about how SB slowing down gives more energy to the giant sleeping below, and then BOOM, EVERYONE RUN SCREAMING FOR THEIR LIVES!:p:p:p;););)
07:36:11 <ynpvisitor16> keep that to yourself
07:37:25 <Dave from B™> I answer supervolcano questions everytime I get together with neighbors since they know I love YNP.
07:37:45 <Dave from B™> It is amazing what social media has done with fact distortion
07:38:39 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yep, same here..... people I know are smart about everything else, turn stupid as soon as I start telling about YNP
07:39:50 <Dave from B™> Exactly...even a couple of doctors have been concerned
07:40:14 <ynpvisitor16> CraigC, that's a great observation
07:42:56 <CraigC> people worry about a dormant volcano and then turn their backs on glaciers melting and toxic air and water
07:43:23 <Dave from B™> Yep...that must not be dramatic enough for people
07:44:07 <CraigC> hopefully fog lifts in a few
07:44:16 <CraigC> at least I hope before my shift ends
07:44:22 <ynpvisitor16> so they aren't smart about everything else then
07:44:33 <CraigC> ynpvisitor16, touche' :)
07:48:11 <CraigC> ynpvisitor16, did you know any of the people affected by that fire the other night?
07:48:37 <ynpvisitor16> :) but on that subject none of us are- we all contributed to it
07:49:22 <Dave from B™> Yep but we aren't in a position to make a real difference. That needs to come from politicians
07:50:16 <CraigC> yet I don't feel responsible for politicians being paid to allow only gas vehicles to remain within my affordability and availability for far too long
07:51:27 <CraigC> DC has been sovereign since before all of our lifetimes
07:59:18 <CraigC> who flicked a booger on the cam?
08:00:01 <Dave from B™> This booger has legs
08:00:11 <Bill> Good morning
08:00:21 <CraigC> hey Bill, the man of the hour....
08:01:29 <CraigC> no update on Steamboat temp logger
08:01:51 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
08:03:42 <CraigC> I hope I get something on the prediction board besides OF before my shift ends
08:10:11 <Bill> on SB?
08:10:33 <Bill> The USGS one?
08:10:51 <CraigC> this one; https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/monitoring_steamboat.html
08:10:51 <Dave from B™> https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/monitoring_steamboat.html
08:11:04 <CraigC> what Dave said
08:11:06 <Bill> Should be working. I fixed Tantalus on Tuesday, and replaced the sensor on Opalescent, but an animal had chewed through the antenna wire as well.
08:11:23 <CraigC> ooops, trying not to laugh
08:11:27 <Bill> oh it just hasnt downloaded. One sec
08:12:36 <CraigC> grotto or arty probably
08:13:11 <CraigC> or maybe grand
08:15:11 <CraigC> I htink it is grand, any other thoughts?
08:16:55 <ynpvisitor69> I was going to say I don't know, but now I'll go with I'm not sure.
08:17:25 <ynpvisitor69> Yet there does appear to be slightly whiter fog inside the gray fog.
08:17:48 <CraigC> it was more distinct right around 813
08:18:24 <Dave from B™> Hard to say
08:18:56 <Joe> I think Grand ie 0812
08:19:12 <CraigC> Joe, thanks!!!
08:19:19 <CraigC> I'll enter with ?
08:19:21 <ynpvisitor69> If I was forced to say yes or no, I'd say yes.
08:19:34 <Joe> It appears to be there yet
08:20:13 <Bill> How has the balance between research on the cone and having the webcam on it been going?
08:20:46 <Joe> #69 we won't waterboard you to get that yes :)
08:22:05 <Joe> Where that plume is now it is Grand 0812 ie for sure
08:22:18 <Dave from B™> I don't think we have seen any researchers on the cam.
08:22:39 <Dave from B™> We have seen them on the static
08:22:41 <CraigC> I saw them on static yesterday
08:22:54 <Dave from B™> This time I beat you, Craig:)
08:23:08 <Joe> I only saw them the first day of their visit
08:23:38 <Joe> on the streaming cam
08:24:50 <Joe> it is still there
08:25:42 <Joe> never mind, i was looking at my recording :)
08:25:53 <Bill> Great!
08:27:52 <Katie (off & on> Good morning
08:28:00 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:28:52 <CraigC> LOL
08:29:15 <Katie (off & on> Hmmm... that doesn't seem to have worked out as planned
08:30:36 <CraigC> at least fog has lifted for your shift
08:30:48 <Joe> I can not wipe that spot off
08:30:54 <Katie (off & on> It's a pretty morning, now.
08:31:00 <Katie (off & on> thanks for trying, Joe
08:31:26 <CraigC> Joe, needs some spit
08:34:15 <Joe> I was hoping they would fill the bottle one more time, but there may be a problem, one day we went from almost full to empty.
08:36:17 <Dave from B™> CraigC, were you assigned the morning winter shift or did you volunteer for it?
08:39:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I was asked
08:40:19 <Dave from B™> I would flog that person. You will be in the fog all winter
08:40:53 <CraigC> hahaha.... I am up really early, and besides Joe and I, most people like to still be asleep at those hours
08:41:32 <CraigC> *most RETIRED people
08:42:18 <CraigC> blast off
08:45:05 <Joe> The morning shifts would be ideal for east coasters, drink coffee, eat donuts until 9 am their time then take the camera for 3 hours, end their shift just in time for lunch
08:48:48 <Katie (off & on> ...and sometimes the fog comes back. ;)
08:56:51 <Katie (off & on> The fog is actually getting denser
08:58:58 <Dave from B™> The UGB does have its own fog machine...it is usually Castle
09:10:25 <ynpvisitor23> SB tenp broken?
09:12:43 <ynpvisitor114> Just looking at that. Terrible timing to go down
09:13:13 <ynpvisitor114> I was wanting to see what happened yesterday.
09:13:41 <ynpvisitor114> I guess now we just hope the seismo works
09:14:36 <CraigC> Bill said he was going to chek on the temp logger
09:18:46 <Dave from B™> It seemed like he had a quick fix but it must not have worked
09:19:13 <FarNorthium> Today is Madame Curie's birthday
09:29:19 <Bill> Just pinged the logger and it's reading fine. Forcing a download now. Give it a bit
09:30:14 <CraigC> Bill, thanks!!!
09:43:30 <Eric> Morning all
09:43:33 <Eric> and thanks Bill
09:44:12 <Eric> I thought the streaming cam was stuck....just nothing moving :-P
09:45:37 <Bill> Morning
09:46:08 <CraigC> my guess is Sb erupts today
10:01:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Guess I better find my drivers license.
10:03:57 <Katie (off & on> Hey, that's a better move on the "speck"
10:04:22 <Katie (off & on> And the fog is lifting... Happy driving!
10:04:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Static is great.
10:07:26 <Betty> morning all
10:07:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Hello.
10:07:51 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:10:07 <Cooper> Hi Betty
10:10:18 <Betty> hi Cooper
10:11:16 <Cooper> My prediction window starts here in a ffew hours
10:16:52 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin, Hi Betty
10:17:38 <Dave from B™> I can't wait to see SB logger info
10:18:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Dave
10:18:49 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
10:20:21 <Cooper> Hi Dave
10:20:23 <Cooper> Hi Kevin
10:20:29 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
10:20:38 <Cooper> how are the cluck clucks today?
10:21:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Cold. Molting an chilly weather. Not a good mix for chickens.
10:21:35 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
10:25:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Finally
10:25:58 <Betty> static is stuck
10:26:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke it
10:26:48 <Betty> I knew it...
10:27:18 <Dave from B™> I'm taking energy for everything so that SB has enough to erupt
10:27:23 <Dave from B™> from*
10:27:37 <Betty> :p
10:28:32 <ynpvisitor12> OF ie??
10:29:03 <Betty> yes
10:29:17 <Betty> Lion ie too
10:30:42 <Joe> My prediction window starts now for SB, I'll let you know the exact minute when it erupts :)
10:31:40 <Betty> Hi Joe, how are you today?
10:32:15 <Joe> Great Betty and how are you?
10:33:02 <Joe> Aurum
10:33:13 <Betty> doing great. I think I convinced my brother to do a short US trip next year :-)
10:33:17 <Betty> Aurum
10:33:41 <Betty> Kevin...
10:33:42 <Betty> .
10:33:42 <Joe> that is good news Betty
10:33:43 <Betty> .
10:34:12 <Joe> kevin probably went to see the chickens
10:34:25 <Betty> :(
10:35:05 <Joe> I'll make a video so he won't missit
10:36:36 <Kevin L™🌵> It knows. :P
10:38:38 <Betty> it was really steamy
10:41:12 <Dave from B™> Betty, what is the compromise with your brother. Do you have to trade him something to talk him into coming to US every year?
10:44:12 <Betty> no, he sure wants to come every year, but he also mentions he needs his holidays for repairs/works at his house ;-)
10:44:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate to that!
10:46:13 <Joe1> 1032 Aurum video https://youtu.be/DsxPI16SohE
10:46:18 <Betty> you can imagine how his house looks like
10:47:04 <Betty> kind of ancient ruins :-p
10:47:45 <Betty> been to US 5 years in a row
10:52:09 <ynpvisitor31> Looks like SteveO is helping Kitt with the dogs!
10:53:15 <Joe> Yes but they were in the wrong place for Aurum today :)
10:55:37 <Joe> I have to leave for a few hours, make something like Ear Spring or giantess erupt so that I can make a video when I come back :)
10:56:09 <Katie (off & on> Oh, now, it would be better "live." We'll wait for you!
10:56:48 <ynpvisitor25> Poor Daisy, gets no respect.
10:57:08 <Betty> later Joe
10:57:21 <Betty> hi Katie (off & on)
10:57:35 <Katie (off & on> Hi Betty
10:57:50 <CraigC> new desktop arrived, now I don't have to stay home all day worrying about delivery
10:58:09 <CraigC> now I get to stay home all day trying to remember how to set up a new computer
10:58:24 <Betty> hey, Craig, lol
10:58:28 <ynpvisitor25> The homeless could hve used it.
10:58:39 <CraigC> hey Betty
10:59:29 <ynpvisitor25> People still use desk top computers? I thought they were like land line phones. Something you only see in old movies.
10:59:59 <Betty> haha, 25
11:00:20 <CraigC> ynpvisitor25, I have been using a Surface pro, but insufficient RAM for running this and my live stock trading screen and anything else at the same time
11:00:25 <Betty> we have a Castle time
11:00:50 <CraigC> I can add up to 64GB of RAM on this new one
11:02:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember my first computer. Bought it maxed out at 16k of ram.
11:02:56 <CraigC> I think my first was 350mhz, I later overclocked it to 400!!!!
11:03:25 <CraigC> my first was an 8088, though, MS DOS
11:03:42 <Eric> Woot....love new computer day :-D
11:03:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine was 0.89mhz 6809
11:04:02 <Rice> Craigc, I read that as your livestock, like cows and pigs, trading screen..... Didn't know you were into that.
11:04:05 <CraigC> Eric, can you come set it up, I am having an anxiety attack
11:04:29 <CraigC> Rice, LMAO
11:04:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I had to pay extra for a cable that hooked it to a cassette recorder for data storage.
11:05:06 <CraigC> What do I hear for these 2 beautiful sheep?
11:05:30 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, I think it was my dad's Tandy that also used the cassette player
11:06:14 <CraigC> OMH, it came with a corded mouse
11:06:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably the trs-80?
11:06:48 <Rice> I bought my first Comador 64 with a 5-1/4" floppy, and not the tape. It was high tech at the time.
11:06:58 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, that sounds right.... and he had a Commodore 64, was that before or after the Tandys?
11:07:16 <ynpvisitor25> 64 gig laptop. Here you go. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Precision-M7510-WorkStation-Display/dp/B074ZSVNWD/ref=sr_1_4?qid=1573149884&refinements=p_n_feature_five_browse-bin%3A13580787011%2Cp_n_feature_four_browse-bin%3A2289792011&s=pc&sr=1-4
11:07:24 <Rice> About the same time I think, and you spelled Commodore much better than I did.
11:08:32 <CraigC> ynpvisitor25, I got this on a special deal at Dell, $400 off coupon, under 900, 250GB Solid State Drive and 1TB HDD
11:09:34 <ynpvisitor25> That laptop has a 1tb ssd.
11:09:51 <CraigC> here is the one I got; https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-desktop-computers/xps-tower/spd/xps-8930-desktop/DXCWVMAXi7UMAAFF?prg=1&VEN1=13631628-227502-04rDZizheWcfNIt3LXthxbk&AID=227502&cjevent=b2a09e32018911ea823500770a1c0e0f&dgc=CJ&DGSeg=DHS&cid=198375&lid=45846&acd=12309198375458460&VEN3=151505131985379509
11:10:27 <ynpvisitor25> You can take the laptop to the lodge and see what cows are selling for.
11:10:37 <CraigC> no, that one isnt right, wrong specs
11:10:47 <CraigC> ynpvisitor25, I stil have my Surface Pro
11:11:48 <ynpvisitor25> Did it come with a dave keyboard?
11:12:46 <CraigC> NVIDIA(R) GeForce GTX(R) 1660 6GB GDDR5 9th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 9400 (6-Core, 9MB Cache, up to 4.1GHz with Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology) 256GB PCIe x4 SSD + 1TB 7200RPM HDD 8GB 1x8GB DDR4 2666MHz
11:12:46 <Eric> what do you need to setup? You plug the cords into the holes and it just works
11:12:47 <ynpvisitor25> It sounds like it has a dave mouse, with a long tail.
11:12:51 <Dave from B™> CraigC, all you do is turn it on.....what kind of tech support do you need?
11:13:06 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha, Eric beat me to it
11:13:07 <CraigC> Eric, all my apps and programs
11:13:11 <Eric> haha Dave...I was wondering hte same thing
11:13:28 <Eric> meh, isn't everything web based now?
11:13:43 <CraigC> gotta remember where all my security CDs are, System Mech, et al
11:13:50 <Eric> Not sure when is the last time I "installed" something on a winblows machine
11:13:57 <Dave from B™> CraigC, you are retired. It will all get done:)
11:14:11 <Eric> It actually has a CD drive?
11:14:22 <CraigC> no, but I have a port drive
11:14:24 <ynpvisitor25> cd/dvd
11:14:27 <Eric> I haven't owned anything but a laptop for years.
11:14:37 <Eric> ahhh
11:14:51 <Eric> Steam has all my games :-D
11:15:00 <Eric> I just log in and install away
11:15:08 <CraigC> this was the most economical way to upgrade, since my Surface is still plenty good for travel
11:15:43 <Dave from B™> I own 8 desktops
11:16:01 <Eric> Yep, nothing wrong with a desktop. I bought my daughter a similar dell setup last year
11:16:11 <ynpvisitor25> Don't you lust plug one windowz machine into the other so they can both be messed up the same? It only takes what a day or 2 to transfer all the confusion.
11:16:44 <Eric> How are steve and Kitt in basin?
11:17:01 <Eric> Science permit?
11:18:18 <Eric> I guess that is Rift shooting up all the steam?
11:21:47 <ynpvisitor25> Installing windowz programs would not be so bad if you could insert the disk and walk away. They always seem to ask you questions several times in the hour long process. Then they do the auto update thing, make you restart your system several times, and generally make it impossible to do while you accomplish anything else.
11:22:50 <ynpvisitor25> I suggest you put it aside until the markets close, or you will miss a deal on pork bellies, pressing any key to continue.
11:23:47 <Kevin L™🌵> "Your mouse has moved. Pleas restart computer for changes to take effect."
11:23:50 <ynpvisitor25> Sorry I was wrong. You can not install any windowz program in an hour.
11:24:33 <ynpvisitor25> He turned it on and it killed his interweb
11:24:59 <ynpvisitor25> Well, time to go do something productive. Enjoy the late bee swarm.
11:25:14 <Kevin L™🌵> bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:55:18 <Betty> Lion
11:55:41 <FarNorthium> Seconded
11:56:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Good action on BH too.
11:57:15 <Dave from B™> Lion ie
12:09:54 <Cooper> Computer Problem: When my cap's lock key's light is on the keys are in non-caps, and when the caps lock light is off, the keys are in all caps!
12:10:57 <ynpvisitor78> sounds like you shift key is stuck
12:11:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Try a restart
12:11:50 <Cooper> 78, tryed to unstick all my keys, and have done 5 hard restarts
12:12:39 <ynpvisitor38> is it plugged in?
12:12:48 <Dave from B™> Cooper, that is called eating too many cookies on top of your keyboard:)
12:13:08 <Cooper> Dave, hahahahah
12:13:22 <Cooper> 38, it has not mattered whether it is plugged in or not
12:13:45 <Dave from B™> SB data still hasn't downloaded
12:16:17 <ynpvisitor92> What is that to the left of BH, looks like a segment of fencing?
12:19:21 <Dave from B™> 92, that is odd
12:23:21 <FarNorthium> Research apparatus?
12:26:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be.
12:35:21 <Bill> It looks like we might change the time of day the loggers download to the afternoon to be more friendly to the batteries
12:35:40 <Bill> I dont administer that system, but I get updates on it
12:36:12 <ynpvisitor16> All the others updated except Steamboat about 0930
12:36:27 <Betty> hey Bill, nice :-)
12:40:48 <Bill> ynpvisitor16, i made a phone call and had them check on the logger. It's still recording. They're taking this time to sync the clocks back up (they were a couple min off) to real time, and to broadcast later in the day to be easier on the batteries. They dont like the cold
12:42:10 <ynpvisitor16> interesting that the other ones updated. Thanks
12:44:34 <Bill> Happens occasionally. There's nothing to prompt another download if it fails, but there is an automated email system (that's currently not working outside of USGS) that sends status reports for things such as a failed download
12:45:06 <Bill> Once they fix that automated email it should make it easier for me to see when the loggers aren't playing nice.
12:47:16 <ynpvisitor16> they have been great lately!
12:47:51 <Bill> They've been a pain in my butt haha
12:48:04 <ynpvisitor16> :)
12:50:35 <ynpvisitor16> I haven't been chewing on any, promise
12:55:05 <Betty> Lion soon maybe
12:57:05 <Katie (off & on> What a great day! I got a raise in my salary and "fired" a customer who was a jerk to me for the last time.
12:57:33 <Cooper> NICE!!!
12:58:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I know a few bankers that could use that.
13:00:17 <Eric> Congrats!
13:00:20 <Betty> riverside
13:00:23 <Cooper> Rside
13:00:30 <CraigC> congrats, Katie
13:00:33 <CraigC> on both
13:00:34 <Cooper> Betty, you beat me too it:)
13:00:59 <Katie (off & on> thanks :)
13:00:59 <Dave from B™> Yes, Congrats, Katie. Sounds like a good reason to tailgate on Saturday:)
13:01:28 <Betty> sounds great, Katie
13:02:02 <Bill> Nice, Katie!
13:02:39 <Eric> Thanks for checking on the loggers Bill..always appreciated
13:03:03 <Eric> That steamboat logger is watched like a hawk by many people now :-D
13:03:19 <Eric> Probably more than the cam when SB is due :-P
13:03:40 <Eric> That logger and the seismo
13:04:45 <Dave from B™> Some noise on SB seismo
13:05:04 <Eric> looks like people Dave
13:05:25 <Dave from B™> That must of been one of Bill's elves hammering the logger:)
13:06:01 <Eric> or steve and kitt headiing that direction :-D
13:06:51 <Cooper> what do you do if your 75 million $ rocket wont respond to Houston, you get someone to go out there and hit it with a brick!:p Kidding, but it is funny:p
13:06:59 <Cooper> lion
13:07:45 <Cooper> not a minor
13:07:54 <Cooper> lasted only a minute tho:(
13:09:54 <Eric> don't forget to enter it coop
13:11:30 <Cooper> Lion again?
13:11:41 <Cooper> yup
13:13:04 <Cooper> both entered
13:13:17 <Cooper> note on the 1306 one saying, "was not a minor, lasted at least one minute"
13:14:58 <Cooper> a 1 Minute eruption is not a minor correct?
13:15:31 <Eric> I would say so
13:15:46 <Eric> was the second eruption a minor?
13:16:06 <Cooper> the 1306 one was not a minor, this one was not a minor. yet they had a 5 min interval
13:16:29 <Eric> 1311 had full height and decent duration too?
13:16:46 <Cooper> 1311 was full height and at least 3 mins
13:16:56 <Eric> ohh, ok
13:16:56 <Cooper> 1306 one was full height and lasted at least 1 min
13:17:15 <Eric> thanks
13:17:42 <Cooper> ynw
13:17:52 <Cooper> yvw**
13:18:01 <Cooper> you are very welcome, not you are not welcome
13:20:59 <ynpvisitor111> Good use of the comment Cooper. If people have any reservations about the accuracy of the post they can make an informed decision based on the comment.
13:23:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. Oblong ie
13:24:04 <Kevin L™🌵> You can see water.
13:24:14 <ynpvisitor23> i saw it!
13:24:23 <ynpvisitor111> Nice!
13:26:14 <ynpvisitor111> So much fun
13:26:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Awesome
13:26:26 <Joe> Lion 1306 was 1306:42 to 1307:25 no water, next Lion 1311:17 water seen ended 1314:47
13:26:39 <ynpvisitor23> good bursts
13:26:51 <ynpvisitor111> Thanks Joe. Sounds, like 1306 was a minor then.
13:27:06 <Betty> my first Olong on the new cam
13:27:14 <ynpvisitor23> if there was no water, is it a minor?
13:28:02 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the best one I have ever seen on the cam Betty.
13:28:18 <ynpvisitor23> I agree, great bursts
13:28:51 <Joe> Very nice Oblong
13:29:07 <ynpvisitor111> I'm assuming he meant no water was seen (as opposed to "water seen" for the 2nd one) but there was sufficient other evidence for him to give it a time
13:29:42 <ynpvisitor111> Can you clarify, Joe. 1306 was a minor or possibly just a period of increased steam?
13:29:42 <Cooper> Joe, I know for a fact that I saw water at 1306
13:29:49 <Joe> I saw water on the second Lion
13:30:12 <Joe> Look at tha replay tomorrow
13:30:24 <Cooper> I will :)
13:33:42 <Joe> My opinion is 1306 was just steam like we see from Lion many times, but that is just my opinion, I don't claim to be an expert, just telling what I see on my recording, nothing more :)
13:34:47 <Joe> Kevin doyou want a video of Oblong to go with your post?
13:35:42 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be great
13:35:44 <Cooper> Joe, I trust you, I am going to delete 1306 Lion, and check tommorow :)
13:40:38 <Joe> You do not have to delete anything based on my thoughts, if you believe you saw what you saw then post it, I just reported what I saw. and I always claim that i can be wrong:
13:45:58 <ynpvisitor111> Good word, Joe. With you having access to a capture of the stream (and just your general credibility with posts), we do value your observations highly, but if any of us truly observe something we should have confidence to post it and justify why our observation is valid.
13:50:00 <Joe> #111, exactly as none of us sometimes do not see exactly the sane thing, (what I call water may not be what someone else calls water)
13:53:46 <Cooper> Joe, thank you for helping me figure out if there was water, based on your observation I deleted it until I can check replay tommorow:)
13:54:19 <Joe> Post what you see and there is no need to justify, I post what I see and many times I have deleted posts as later reviews showed I did not see what I thought I saw, and by the same token later review sometimes proved that I saw what I thought I saw
13:56:07 <Dave from B™> I thought I saw a puddy cat:)
13:56:34 <Dave from B™> Great conversation guys. People can interpret the same footage differently
13:56:47 <Joe> I did iDid I saw a puddy cat :)
13:57:13 <Dave from B™> haha
13:57:26 <Dave from B™> I haven't seen a good old time cartoon in ages
13:57:43 <Joe> :)
14:09:03 <Joe> Oblong is taking longer than usual to upload but I am getting there :)
14:11:55 <Joe1> Oblong today https://youtu.be/Vsr4RhQiAbo
14:12:51 <FarNorthium> Thanks cuz I missed it
14:13:11 <Joe> yw
14:13:42 <Dave from B™> I wonder how tall Oblong water has to be before we can see it
14:17:25 <Joe> Good question, I have no Idea, maybe someone more familiar with that area can tell us
14:18:24 <Katie (off & on> Thanks, Joe. Enjoyed that.
14:18:37 <Joe> Yw
14:22:40 <ynpvisitor38> nps visitor survey refers to new bigger bathrooms at Norris coming
14:22:45 <Joe> Kevin, the Oblong video is attached to your post
14:23:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks Joe
14:23:49 <Betty> thanks to both of you. great Oblong
14:27:54 <ynpvisitor33> Nice of SteveO to let everyone know Tilt's Baby is empty!
14:28:45 <Joe> /
14:28:53 <ynpvisitor33> with VEC closed, will static get updated?
14:28:55 <Dave from B™> 38, that will be nice. they are long overdue
14:31:55 <Chancellor> Was able to make Christmas reservations today at Old Faithful :D
14:32:26 <ynpvisitor33> that is great, did you get a snowcoach ride too?
14:32:37 <ynpvisitor38> good news
14:32:50 <Joe> August Christmas :)
14:32:58 <ynpvisitor38> haha
14:33:04 <Chancellor> yep, snowcoach too.
14:33:05 <ynpvisitor38> so no snowcoach availale
14:33:30 <Chancellor> 2 nights at the Snow Lodge
14:34:07 <Chancellor> might go broke with the price of 2 nights and snowcoach tickets for 2
14:35:32 <Eric> Congrats Chancellor
14:35:50 <ynpvisitor38> haha, that ia a lot. no package discount over christmas either
14:36:24 <Chancellor> no, no discounts
14:36:31 <ynpvisitor38> also report says there will be a new N gate entrance, 2 lanes
14:36:50 <ynpvisitor38> i think the discounts start right after New Year
14:36:58 <ynpvisitor38> and before Christmas
14:37:35 <Kevin L™🌵> They are supposed to have a gif basket for you though.
14:40:13 <Joe> Grand
14:42:20 <Dave from B™> 38, I had heard about the north entrance. Hut upgrade is long overdue
14:42:38 <Chancellor> gift baskets are not eligible during Christmas week
14:43:02 <Chancellor> I am bringing my own wine on the snowcoach - that will be my gift basket
14:43:12 <FarNorthium> This is what I call really good visibility
14:43:14 <Dave from B™> Xanterra = Scrooge?
14:45:17 <Dave from B™> Best closeup in awhile
14:46:48 <Dave from B™> Kevin, has CraigC asked you for any tannerite yet regarding his new computer?:)
14:48:50 <FarNorthium> :(
14:49:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Not so far. He may want it for his old one.
14:50:17 <Eric> 10m
14:51:43 <Dave from B™> Eric, what mountain are you climbing this weekend?
14:52:32 <Dave from B™> Almost at 8 days for SB interval
14:52:59 <Dave from B™> That will make 3of last 4 intervals over 8 days
14:54:59 <Eric> Not sure yet Dave.....still need to figure that out!
14:55:37 <Betty> time for sleep, enjoy SB signature on seismo. Night all
14:56:04 <Dave from B™> Nite, Betty. We'll save SB for you for tomorrow
14:56:09 <Eric> Night Betty
14:56:21 <Eric> yep, we still got another day or two
15:02:43 <Cooper> OF
15:03:44 <ynpvisitor43> SB had longer intervals last winter than summer, maybe it is switching agan
15:05:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> might even lengthen the 100 eruption mean, the one that drops off is 9d9h20m
15:05:54 <Cooper> Hi Graham
15:06:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello
15:08:19 <CraigC> last year our mayor got killed during duty in Afghanistan. They raised this flag last year, then again this week for Veterans Day. This is from the trail on my bike; https://imgur.com/P8VNq8D
15:09:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice tribute
15:10:17 <CraigC> another angle; https://imgur.com/LahiLvJ
15:11:37 <CraigC> last one; https://imgur.com/rdlYAmV
15:11:47 <Joe> Computer cooking :)
15:14:03 <Joe> ? after cooking
15:14:11 <where is daisy?> Japanese company working on flood proof homes.
15:15:02 <Joe> building boats ??
15:15:24 <CraigC> Joe, who are you asking about cooking a computer?
15:15:41 <where is daisy?> Nope, hardened expensive looking houses.
15:15:49 <Joe> you is it cooking along ?
15:16:00 <CraigC> Joe, nope, it was DOA
15:16:12 <Joe> darn!
15:16:35 <CraigC> spent half hour taking to someone I couldnt understand that tried to tell me how to check "jumper" on the motherboard...LOL
15:16:38 <where is daisy?> got to watch what you hit it with when it says hit any key
15:17:08 <where is daisy?> does it beep, or just dead?
15:17:55 <CraigC> no light at the power button
15:18:07 <CraigC> power supply issue
15:18:28 <where is daisy?> Let me guess. It was delivered by united parcel smashers?
15:18:35 <CraigC> Fed Ex
15:18:57 <where is daisy?> did the ask you to check the 110/240 switch on the back?
15:19:36 <CraigC> I couldnt see any switch
15:19:57 <CraigC> there isnt
15:20:09 <where is daisy?> see how long it has been that I was around a desk top
15:20:18 <CraigC> and I felt up against the inside of the power supply, nothing I could find
15:22:16 <where is daisy?> How long did they say it would take to replace it?
15:22:46 <Cooper> goodbye
15:24:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Did it go through Phoenix?
15:24:54 <where is daisy?> could be a bad powersupply, could be a bad cord, most likely a connector is not connected. they need to be connected to the motherboadr to turn on
15:25:41 <CraigC> I checked the connections to the motherboard
15:27:09 <CraigC> oh well, I haven't lost anything I didn't already not have
15:28:50 <where is daisy?> did you feel like this when on customer support? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mme2Aya_6Bc
15:30:05 <CraigC> hahahaha
15:30:29 <CraigC> how apropos, with "Daisy" in your name, and Hal's favorite song
15:30:34 <Kevin L™🌵> How about this? Even the right brand! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4klzC_7LvuE
15:31:44 <CraigC> I had one that looked like that, before the explosion
15:32:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Me too. Looked like it after the explosion too.
15:48:31 <where is daisy?> There is a dell customer service song on the tube. Can not post it here.
15:59:53 <CraigC> we missed aurum LOL
16:01:25 <Kevin L™🌵> I sure didn't see it.
16:01:57 <CraigC> I was on another screen
16:02:38 <Kevin L™🌵> I moved to controls to release. Maybe it was between live and lag.
16:06:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> no SB temp data update today :(
16:08:32 <CraigC> they made changes, it is going to post during the day instead of morning now
16:08:53 <CraigC> when the batteries arent as cold
16:09:02 <Kat> Hi all!
16:09:07 <CraigC> hey Kat
16:09:41 <Kat> Hi Craig!
16:11:27 <where is daisy?> A musical interlude. Time to go for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVbuIZ-5-8o
16:12:19 <Kat> So Kitt and SteveO are in basin?
16:14:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Enjoy OF
16:15:57 <Kat> Thanks Kevin!
16:26:53 <Katie (off & on> Pretty OF
16:49:17 <ynpvisitor118> Yes Kat. They are dog/house watching for NPS friends.
16:52:01 <Kat> ynpvisitor118, NIce!
16:52:44 <Cooper> Lori, are you still here?
16:55:54 <ynpvisitor59> so static is an hour behind?
16:57:37 <Cooper> https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/washburn_sw.jpg?1573170957819
16:57:45 <Cooper> what is the steam? cloud on the left from?
16:59:35 <Kat> Marmot
17:01:58 <ynpvisitor59> nice day to be in the basin for SteveO and Kitt
17:04:00 <Kat> :thumbsup:
17:06:17 <Kat> Nice color at Lake!
17:07:34 <Eric> Cooper, there is a thermal basin called Washburn basin that shows up left side of that cam
17:07:45 <ynpvisitor59> yes, Lake is very nice
17:08:39 <Cooper> Eric, thx
17:10:02 <Cooper> oh, I frogot to say that based on some of the temp data, based on previous intervals, and trends vs. last years ones. I was predicting SB at "0614 AM MDT 11/7/2019 (+/- 12 HOURS)"
17:11:11 <Cooper> That was made "11/5/2019"
17:12:19 <Kat> Rocket maybe
17:14:25 <ynpvisitor59> lake now
17:15:10 <Kat> Awesome!
17:15:15 <ynpvisitor59> so your time is up Cooper, one hour to go?
17:15:28 <Cooper> oops
17:15:44 <Cooper> 0614 AM MDT 11/8/2019
17:15:54 <ynpvisitor59> ha ha, sure about that?
17:16:01 <ynpvisitor59> convenient change there
17:16:18 <CraigC> Steamboat erupted ~8days ago, predictions on geysers that are predictable are made at the time of the eruption
17:16:21 <Cooper> 59, I am, If you want to ask LoriS I told her "614 AM 11/8"
17:16:43 <Cooper> CraigC, I try, but my life is a bit busy
17:17:17 <CraigC> we already have GT that gives the stats and averages....
17:17:28 <ynpvisitor59> all those hours watching the cam
17:18:20 <Eric> I like to predict geyser after they erupt...way easier!
17:18:38 <ynpvisitor59> way easier
17:18:48 <CraigC> Eric, LMAO
17:19:00 <Eric> Sometimes I even get it right!
17:19:11 <ynpvisitor59> maybe over time you will get better at it
17:20:11 <CraigC> I predict Old Faithful will erupt about 1 hour 34 minutes after it's last eruption +- 13 minutes.... I am really smart
17:20:26 <Cooper> Craig, haha
17:20:44 <CraigC> every one pat my back when I am close
17:20:58 <Kat> :) hahaha
17:21:35 <CraigC> I predict Bulger is eruptin
17:21:38 <CraigC> g
17:22:38 <Eric> Unless it doesn't Craig :-P
17:23:16 <CraigC> Eric, I only announce the times when I can show how right I am
17:24:10 <Cooper> Mine and Lori's method are secret, shhhhhh, our thing that could re-write every book that has SB in it, is very secret, sshhhhshshshshshshshshhsh
17:24:17 <Cooper> :p
17:24:49 <Eric> Alright...I predict I am leaving for the evening...night all!
17:24:56 <CraigC> I doubt anyone would be upset if you kept it completely secret from this moment forward
17:25:17 <CraigC> cya eric
17:25:17 <Kat> Night Eric!
17:25:51 <Cooper> bye Eric
17:26:31 <Kat> Getting dark there - already dark here - almost time to sign off!
17:32:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> so down to48 eruptions in the last 12 months
17:40:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> daisy
17:40:44 <Cooper> :daisy:
17:40:47 <Kat> :daisy:
17:57:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
17:57:37 <Kat> OF!
17:58:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice in black and white
17:59:14 <Kat> It is - guess I never notived -does it always change to black and white when datrk?
17:59:45 <Kat> noticed* dark* LOL
17:59:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, thees a period when it switches back and forth, but then it stays black and white
18:00:32 <Kat> Thanks Graham - after dark black and white is better
18:02:17 <Kat> Don't know if Joe will be on tonight - I think I'll leave the cam here. Signing off and be back in the AM!
20:07:52 <Cooper> just witnessed a cool weather phenomenon
20:08:19 <Cooper> A rare case of upslope fog!
20:08:50 <Cooper> where warm air sinks, and cool are rises(opposite of Convection) forming fog on the tops of mountains!
20:09:15 <Cooper> but because there was also conditions for Radiation Fog...
20:09:54 <Cooper> The Upslope fog got "heavy" aka, it's number density increases(I think it is # density, but may be anotehr type of density)
20:10:07 <Cooper> and then because of that...
20:10:57 <Cooper> some of the fog dissapated and turned into ice crystals... which then began to progress down the mountain(but you could not see this, so it looked like the fog dissapearded)
20:11:39 <Cooper> and then because there was a change in temperature, and pressure. The fog retured!
20:12:08 <Cooper> Cool thing about this fog: you could see right through parts of it(Ice Crystal Reflection) but not others!
20:34:49 <ynpvisitor42> Something must be wrong with my connection, I don't see the other person or persons in the conversation above.
20:38:14 <Cooper1> 42, try restarting your computer
20:38:30 <Cooper1> Or whatever your device is
20:39:18 <Cooper1> Grand
20:39:18 <Cooper1> .
20:39:21 <Cooper1> .
20:41:40 <ynpvisitor24> 42 don't do anything Cooper talks to himself a lot
20:43:40 <Cooper1> 24, Haha, that I do:)
20:44:21 <ynpvisitor42> why
20:50:06 <Cooper> 42, sorry had to change devices
20:50:27 <Cooper> 42, because I can not help it...
20:51:07 <Cooper> it is something medical, that makes it really hard for me to do things to loud, or silent, so I naturally just say/do something... that is about as far as I am willing to go into detail
