08:43:55 <Dave from B™> Good morning all spinning circle fans
08:52:06 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:52:17 <Eric> I have no spinning circle :-P
08:52:36 <Eric> If you switch the static cam to your main view, you just get to see the static updates.
08:52:50 <Eric> Under settings - "Static Camera Main"
08:57:26 <Dave from B™> Why would I want to stare at a still photo?:)
08:57:43 <Dave from B™> When I have a "streaming" circle?:D
08:58:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just pretend it is a seachicken game.
09:06:25 <Dave from B™> :)
09:21:09 <JarnoO> morning all
09:22:12 <Eric> Hi Jarno
09:22:51 <Eric> The photo isn't still, just close your eyes for 60 seconds and it will be different every time you open them :-P
09:23:02 <JarnoO> hehe
09:23:50 <Dave from B™> haha. Morning Eric, Kevin, Jarno
09:23:58 <JarnoO> static actually seems to update more frequently than 60 seconds though, as I sometimes get a wildly different frame than an archived one with exactly the same timestamp
09:24:31 <Eric> Yes, the static updates are weird, because transfer time is involved.
09:24:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Found something for you Dave:
09:26:05 <Dave from B™> fish finder? I know exactly where my fish are!:)
09:26:22 <JarnoO> time to make dinner
09:27:36 <ChrisO> Im surprised any data comes out of YS, when they cant even keep a camera operation (gripe, gripe, grump)..ok im done..Hi everyone
09:28:54 <Dave from B™> YNP winters are harsh
09:29:18 <Eric> Hi Chris :-D
09:29:32 <Eric> Gazers are harsher :-P
09:29:38 <ChrisO> i know, just grumping :)
09:30:51 <KorbenC> Morning everyone.
09:31:01 <ChrisO> hi Korben
09:31:06 <❄Forestbewith> Hi Korben, Hi everyone
09:31:13 <Dave from B™> haha Eric
09:31:25 <Dave from B™> Hi youngsters
09:31:40 <Eric> Hi Coop
09:31:52 <KorbenC> HI Chris, Forest, Dave, Eric.
09:46:38 <nutz> Jellystone needs a monolith.
09:47:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Utah cornered the market on those.
09:53:01 <Eric> Yes, monoliths do not follow LNT guidelines!
09:53:13 <Eric> Hey Kevin, you survived!
09:53:27 <Eric> You get the big boom you were looking for?
09:55:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes we did and left with all the glass intact.
09:55:50 <Eric> Woohoo!
09:56:23 <Eric> I think that monolith had a mailbox on top of it before, but Craig is driving around Utah!
09:57:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Leftover from this movie:
09:58:01 <nutz> I think Musk put it there as a navigation guide for his satellites.
10:06:33 <Eric> What it looked like before Craig was in Utah -
10:09:36 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
10:11:03 <Dave from B™> I have really enjoyed Craig's posts on FB from the Moab area. I can't wait to go in April
10:11:22 <Eric> OF
10:11:34 <Eric> Yep, they have been awesome...totally jealous!
10:13:14 <Dave from B™> We are even thinking of getting my wife an ebike so she can ride with me on vacations
10:14:34 <Eric> Nice, anything that gets people outside is a good thing IMHO.
10:19:34 <Dave from B™> We need to find a way to get exercise if we are going to be gone 3 weeks at a time
10:25:25 <Eric> walking!
10:27:03 <Dave from B™> Walking is NOT good enough exercise:)
10:27:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Get a mean dog to chase you.
10:29:47 <Dave from B™> Our walks are with our 2 dogs and there is NOTHING aerobic about that. Dogs have to sniff EVERYTHING:)
10:35:41 <Eric> Untrue...walking is incredible exercise, just don't do it with your dogs. Unless you also take your dogs to the gym?
10:37:49 <Mario> Good morning friends
10:38:05 <Eric> Hi Mario
10:55:21 <JarnoO> is that Aurum on this frame?
10:59:41 <Eric> Looks like it Jarno
11:13:57 <Dave from B™> If I went for a walk without my dogs and they found out about it....there would be hell to pay:D
11:25:55 <Eric> Tell your dogs you are going to gym and just walk away :-P
11:26:50 <Dave from B™> haha
11:42:05 <JarnoO> wow. Eta's death toll is set at ≥189 and that of Iota at ≥61. Also $7 billion in cumulative damage there
11:42:17 <JarnoO> ≥$7 billion, even
11:42:50 <Dave from B™> messed with getting lobster tails from Central America for the holidays
11:43:47 <JarnoO> oh boy. So financial damage is even higher then. Quite impressive how hurricanes can do that
11:50:41 <kc (working)> OF
11:51:23 <JarnoO> oh, didn't set myself back
12:35:39 <Eric> Here is your problem with gloves Dave -
12:36:21 <Dave from B™> Eric, my fresh manager brought this to my attention about an hour ago. Crazy
12:36:51 <Eric> Yes, one company makes all the gloves and they are inundated with Covid.
12:37:06 <Eric> Can't get vaccine into the world soon enough!
12:37:26 <Dave from B™> When people ask me why other countries don't have the problems we do with COVID....only need to look at countries putting barb wire around housing complexes to keep people from going out
12:37:26 <KorbenC> You can... look at Russia
12:38:56 <Dave from B™> Yep...we can see the light at the end of the tunnel but it is still 2 miles away:)
12:39:28 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, how long does it take you to get there then?
12:39:30 <Dave from B™> Eric, I thought that Hiawatha tunnel would never end:)
12:39:56 <Dave from B™> Korben, we are ALL crawling to the light.
12:40:18 <Dave from B™> bludgeoned and bloodied
12:40:43 <KorbenC> wouldnt we starve then though? :P
12:41:10 <Dave from B™> Not if you eat dirt
12:41:32 <KorbenC> Wouldnt we die of dehydration then? dirt is dry.
12:41:32 <JarnoO> I don't think dirt is that nutritious though...
12:42:02 <Dave from B™> Hiawatha tunnel is very leaky
12:42:28 <KorbenC> Woudln't we get some form of dysentery?
12:42:33 <Eric> haha, yes, hiawatha is cold, dark and wet :-D
12:42:38 <Eric> Great on a 100 degree day
12:42:51 <KorbenC> and then if we are all crying, we have no medical access, so we die ;)
12:42:52 <Dave from B™> It was a fun trip but everything gets dirty
12:42:58 <Eric> But you still have to bundle up when going through it.
12:43:18 <Eric> Dirt is OK Dave :-D
12:44:16 <Eric> Front line workers should be getting vaccinated in December, that will help a lot.
12:45:18 <Eric> I wouldn't be surprised if we have Covid/Flu mRNA combo vaccine by fall of next year.
12:45:33 <Eric> single dose for the season
12:46:08 <KorbenC> Eric, that would have to go through alternative testing, most companys have said that they don't know if the combination of the two would be safe.
12:46:39 <Eric> Yes, nobody knows because it hasn't been done :-D
12:46:43 <Dave from B™> So, what do you think it will take for closures to disappear....will it be measured by positive cases? % of people vacinnated?
12:47:33 <Eric> Vaccine availability I would assume. If it is available and everyone who wants it, can get it...then open stuff up.
12:48:03 <Eric> It should drive hospitalizations down below seasonal flu numbers.
12:48:39 <Eric> I just read the biggest spreaders of Covid are Care facilities & prisons.
12:48:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just shoot everybody. Problem solved.
12:49:02 <Dave from B™> It will be interesting to see how they prioritize vaccinations
12:49:12 <Eric> Already have a plan in place.
12:49:19 <Dave from B™> And, will you have to carry proof of vaccination around with you?
12:49:25 <Eric> It's on the gov website someplace.
12:49:39 <Dave from B™> Where do essential workers fit into that list?
12:49:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We must not allow a mineshaft gap!
12:50:01 <Eric> It depends Dave, the plan is very detailed about who gets it when.
12:50:32 <Eric> It all seemed very reasonable to me to maximize peoples health.
12:50:45 <Dave from B™> mineshaft gap?
12:51:14 <Dave from B™> any way, it is nice to see the end of the tunnel
12:51:22 <Eric> I want proof of vaccination if I am going to be around you :-D
12:51:55 <Dave from B™> haha. I'm going to talk to you from 1 foot away right inside your personal bubble:D
12:52:10 <Eric> stay out of my bubbles :-P
12:52:31 <Eric> It's like tannerite.
12:53:18 <Dave from B™> :D
12:56:14 <Dave from B™> There is so pent up demand for travel. I bet things will be crazy busy for 2 years
12:56:33 <Dave from B™> Especially people returning to vaca in cities
12:58:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
12:59:24 <Eric> That is how my brother is investing Dave. He is doubling down on tourism stocks already.
13:00:12 <Dave from B™> I should have bought disney when is was around 145
13:00:32 <Dave from B™> Airline stocks too
13:01:28 <Eric> Yep, they were dirt cheap and they will go like crazy next year.
13:01:38 <Dave from B™> Instead, I bought Coca Cola, McDonalds, CBS, Verizon and Store Corp
13:01:55 <Eric> Just on the news of covid vaccines the markets are reacting very well.
13:02:20 <Dave from B™> And, the fact, we finally have a president elect
13:02:32 <Eric> Yes, that too.
13:13:40 <Dave from B™> There are a lot of gazers who I need to's been awhile
13:25:54 <kc (working)> OF
13:29:57 <Dave from B™> Here's an article some may like to read
13:30:05 <Dave from B™>
13:32:52 <JarnoO> nice - someone's waste is another one's treasure :)
13:46:44 <LindaG> Hello all
13:47:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
13:47:26 <JarnoO> afternoon Linda
13:47:36 <KorbenC> Hi Linda, JO, Kevin.
13:47:43 <LindaG> Hi KorbenC, JarnoO, Kevin L™ 🌵,
13:50:11 <KorbenC> Jarno, I am having trouble simplifying stuff like this to basic 9th graders, ""The convective allowing of the storm triggers strong convective bursts with high j/kg producing multiple intercyclonic supercells that move within the vectors."
13:51:30 <JarnoO> ehhmmm... Yeah. That's a lot of abra cadabra for those not into weather
13:51:43 <KorbenC> I know :)
13:51:50 <KorbenC> I have about 1/2 of the stuff simplified.
13:51:51 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
13:52:22 <KorbenC> I have to balance the fact that they are 9th graders who don't know weather, and the fact that I want extra credit for going above and beyond :)
13:53:52 <Dave from B™> Why does this come to mind?
13:53:55 <Dave from B™>
13:54:20 <Dave from B™> Just giving you a hard time, Korben!:)
13:57:23 <KorbenC> Let me watch it.. I was walking to the mailbo
13:57:24 <KorbenC> x
13:57:37 <KorbenC> HAHA
14:23:44 <KB> how do you identify beehive versus lion on static cam, since all you see is steam?
14:23:59 <KorbenC> Kitt, BH steam wil ltake up the entire left side
14:24:10 <KorbenC> Lion will often float over higher and lighter on the screen
14:27:36 <KB> When did streaming cam quit?
14:28:36 <KorbenC> geez, uhm, 9 days ago?
14:29:16 <KorbenC> 11-13.
14:29:18 <KB> I thought it was before the park closed?
14:29:42 <KorbenC> It died completely on 11/13
14:32:48 <KB> ok
14:33:06 <KorbenC> It was dying before that though.
14:33:51 <Dave from B™> It worked once he heated up for the day
14:33:57 <Dave from B™> he = it
14:34:07 <KB> I was just curious if anyone had been notified
14:34:30 <KB> of course most employees are on furlough right now
14:34:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Be prepared for a long outage. Yes they are aware of it.
14:36:27 <KB> so is Aurum between the left and 2nd to the left trees?
14:36:57 <KorbenC> Earlier Aurum,
14:37:01 <KB> I mean is that where you would see it?
14:37:07 <KorbenC> yes
14:37:12 <JarnoO> yes, though Pump is a trickster
14:37:25 <KorbenC> yup
14:37:31 <KorbenC> Its a little devil :P :P
14:37:45 <KB> I saw steam there a moment ago, but didn't know if it was enough
14:38:06 <KorbenC> Don't see anything in past 10m
14:41:01 <Dave from B™> Hi Graham
14:41:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> Hello. Did i miss.anything?
14:42:32 <Dave from B™> No earth shaking discussions today
14:42:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> I bet you are busy this week Fave?
14:43:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There were good freights at Kansas City
14:43:51 <Dave from B™> Yep...pretty good week so far. Nov now up 42% in the market
14:44:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think the novelty of No Cam Chat has worn off
14:44:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> Oh good, that can fund another vaca in the minnow
14:45:21 <KorbenC> Dave could come to CO :) Walking up a mountain is a great aerobic exercise.
14:45:30 <Dave from B™> Fionally have dates picked out for next year....actually have 3 nights insed Zion with electric
14:45:42 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, lucky.
14:45:43 <Dave from B™> Arches is going to be tougher
14:46:02 <Dave from B™> Put I do have 5 nights in Moab at RV park as backup
14:46:46 <Dave from B™> Korben, I won't be coming to Colorado until we can do long travel in the summer which might be a couple of years still.
14:46:57 <Dave from B™> Too cold in Spring and Fall
14:47:19 <KorbenC> Not really, its a balmy 19F outside right now.
14:47:27 <KorbenC> And not like its colder here than where you are :)
14:47:45 <Dave from B™> Hugo needs above freezing temps at night
14:48:02 <KorbenC> What I should have said is: Good! I have a few more years to get out of Colorado before Dave breaks it all :P
14:48:26 <KorbenC> Haha, Hugo, still cracks me up :)
14:51:43 <Dave from B™> Taylor is making us a logo for Christmas. I'll take a picture once its applied to Hugo
14:51:56 <KorbenC> fun
14:54:48 <Dave from B™> Alright, time to go sweat and then walk the rats again. Have a great evening everyone!
