05:11:51 <JarnoO👑> One of the cones at Fagradalsfjall is acting like a mini Etna:
05:14:33 <JarnoO👑> Aurum with HLS delay
05:35:46 <JarnoO👑> did it drift on its own again?
05:36:46 <Joe> no, I was trying the ptz ball
05:37:02 <JarnoO👑> ah, okay. Any success? :)
05:37:38 <Joe> Lets say I need practice :)
05:37:48 <JarnoO👑> haha
05:40:14 <linda> that darn ball :)
05:40:17 <JarnoO👑> apparantly according to Windows' search, "ye" is not the same as "yel" for a file called "Yellowstone streaming RTMP.xspf"
05:40:21 <linda> morning
05:40:27 <JarnoO👑> morning Linda
05:40:49 <linda> looks miserable out there
05:40:54 <Joe> linda, Hi
05:41:01 <linda> JarnoO👑, hi
05:41:06 <linda> Joe, hi
05:43:06 <Joe> Bee 10-11ish/ I hope
05:43:24 <Joe> for Bee
05:43:41 <JarnoO👑> fingers crossed
05:43:47 <linda> that would be nice
05:52:18 <JarnoO👑> that's late into the season for an icicle
06:00:07 <Joe> I did not crash this time :)
06:57:15 <Forestbewithyou> Morning all
06:58:16 <Joe> Hi Kat, I'm finished have fun!
06:58:23 <Kat> Morning Joe,Forest and all
06:58:23 <KorbenC> Hi Forest, Joe, Kat.
06:58:33 <Kat> Hey Korben
06:58:39 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Kat, Joe
06:58:41 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
06:58:42 <Kat> Thx Joe - have a good day!
06:58:46 <Joe> Hi everyone
06:58:48 <JarnoO👑> morning Forest, Kitty, Kat, Forest, Korben
06:58:56 <KorbenC> Joe, did BH look good evernight at all?
06:58:57 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jarno
06:59:04 <Kat> Hi Jarno
06:59:12 <KorbenC> Morning Jarno. Particular reason for the crown today?
06:59:21 <JarnoO👑> King's Day
06:59:49 <Joe> There was not much to see all night, very poor view.
06:59:55 <KorbenC> Ooo, so you have the day off?
07:00:05 <KorbenC> Joe, :thumbsup::(
07:00:38 <JarnoO👑> yes, public holiday
07:00:47 <KorbenC> Nice.
07:01:33 <Joe> JarnoO👑, That means the Amsterdam waterway will be filled with people dressed in orange, and crashing rented boats :)
07:01:54 <JarnoO👑> nation-wide flea market :)
07:02:02 <KorbenC> Joe, lol.
07:02:06 <Kat> :)
07:02:09 <JarnoO👑> though there's little festivities today due to virus
07:03:06 <Joe> Kat do you do that move with the PTZ ball??
07:03:22 <Kat> Never
07:03:41 <Joe> How are you so smooth?
07:04:13 <Joe> in movement
07:04:24 <Kat> I use the arrow on the control pic and hold it down - The PTZ ball is too erratic! I'm just a smooth operator Hahaha
07:04:49 <Joe> That must be it!! :)
07:04:56 <Kat> I also use the arrow to move up and down
07:05:14 <Kat> Hahaha - try it you'll like it better
07:06:49 <Kat> Can't see anything down basin - hope it clears
07:07:13 <Joe> I will try my next shift, thanks for the tip.
07:07:57 <Kat> I do use presets to get where I want to go faster or to get in a general vicinity
07:09:04 <Kat> Joe, you're welcome
07:10:12 <Kat> I also think the PTZ ball may have set off the cam wackiness a few days ago - too hard to control
07:11:49 <Kat> Sunny at West
07:13:22 <Kat> Electric Peak pretty with sun
07:16:22 <Kat> Hi Linda
07:16:42 <linda> Kat, hi
07:16:49 <linda> hi all
07:19:36 <Kat> linda, Isn't it pretty ?? LOL
07:20:04 <linda> yikes, miserable weather
07:20:10 <Kat> The dreaded icycle!
07:20:28 <linda> I don't see an icicle
07:20:36 <Kat> linda, sunny in all other cams
07:20:38 <linda> I must be delayed
07:20:42 <linda> there it is
07:20:50 <Kat> Hahaha
07:34:52 <linda> hope craig has heat
07:36:24 <Kat> Hope so - most likely does in his camper
07:49:30 <Kat> OF
07:54:19 <Joe> It is a good thing that F&M did not wait until this morning to erupt. :)
08:03:52 <KorbenC> Morning Forest.
08:04:09 <KorbenC> (Sorry, I couldn't resist :P)
08:04:13 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
08:04:47 <Forestbewithyou> lol
08:05:16 <Joe> KorbenC, you are not sorry :)
08:09:38 <KorbenC> Joe, you right, I am not :D
08:10:20 <KorbenC> Why do I have a feeling Forest gats that alot?
08:10:22 <Forestbewithyou> :)
08:10:25 <KorbenC> He is ForestG. after all
08:10:38 <Forestbewithyou> All I got to say is its spelled differently
08:11:00 <ynpvisitor10> I cant see anything from Hams
08:11:20 <KorbenC> You might ahve to go brave the weather and walk out onto the hill :)
08:11:31 <KorbenC> Aurum would look so cool right now from the BW
08:13:10 <Kat> KorbenC, good luck seeing aurum from here
08:13:11 <Forestbewithyou> I think Craig would prefer the weather here
08:13:33 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, is it warm and sunny?
08:14:07 <Forestbewithyou> 67 and partly sunny
08:14:20 <ynpvisitor10> Wow
08:14:33 <ynpvisitor10> 24 here
08:14:58 <Forestbewithyou> I think we are going to get to the upper 70's
08:15:13 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, cRAIG HAS his plane ticket booked :)
08:15:22 <ynpvisitor10> Forestbewithyou, are you in Wisconsin
08:15:38 <Forestbewithyou> KorbenC, Yup
08:15:40 <Forestbewithyou> ynpvisitor10, Yup
08:17:09 <KorbenC> 10 can get some cheese while he is at it.
08:17:38 <Forestbewithyou> Yup
08:18:40 <KorbenC> Gruyere is always so good, and it is so much easier to get it from Wisconsin than Switzerland :D
08:20:21 <Dave from B™> Good morning genuine geyser geezer gazer gawkers.
08:20:23 <KorbenC> Hye Dave
08:20:27 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Dave
08:20:38 <KorbenC> Did you say hi to SB yet?
08:20:39 <Dave from B™> You guys aren't geezers
08:20:42 <Mike J> Morning Dave, from a fellow GGGGG
08:20:58 <Mike J> Finally, 5G in the basin!!!
08:21:03 <Dave from B™> No, just drove on by. We were actually visiting a sick friend in Gardiner. Just passing thru
08:21:17 <Dave from B™> Hi Mike
08:21:19 <KorbenC> :( Sorry to hear it
08:21:41 <JarnoO👑> morning Dave
08:22:12 <Dave from B™> Have you been stalking CraigC?
08:22:26 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, shhh.
08:23:33 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure what he coats his chair with but everyone seems to like it
08:23:53 <KorbenC> ;)
08:26:35 <Kat> Dave from B™, Morning! Looks like you had a great trip!
08:28:39 <Dave from B™> Morning Kat. I LOVE TO TRAVEL:):):)
08:28:57 <Dave from B™> 34 nights in the van so far this year
08:29:17 <Kat> Awesome! I could live in that van of yours! Haha
08:29:57 <Kat> wonder if that's Craig's truck
08:36:31 <Dave from B™> I'm looking at GH. Is my cam view stuck?
08:37:26 <Dave from B™> We have friends ask if we get a hotel room once in awhile for more space. Why? It forces you get outside and enjoy
08:37:54 <Dave from B™> Sadly, the van is done until June 22
08:39:34 <ynpvisitor6> Looks like a plume near grand
08:39:56 <ynpvisitor6> Not enough for grand ie
08:40:09 <ynpvisitor6> Maybe tyrban
08:40:21 <JarnoO👑> fog clearing
08:44:03 <linda> morning again
08:44:54 <JarnoO👑> morning Kevin, Linda (again)
08:50:50 <KorbenC> lc
08:52:02 <Kat> I was ordering groceries -turned to computer and it cleared ! Nice
08:54:16 <Kat> Still down basin fogged :(
08:57:35 <Mike J> Quick. Order more groceries. Maybe Giantess will erupt.
08:58:05 <Kat> Mike J, Hahaha - spent enough already!
08:58:22 <Kat> Picture better today!
09:00:45 <Kat> MC
09:03:00 <ynpvisitor10> Mostly clear here at Grotto for my bison buddy and me
09:04:17 <Kat> ynpvisitor10, LOL
09:06:59 <Dave from B™> Kat, how do you find the quality of your groceries when someone else does the picking?
09:08:01 <Kat> There's some things I go to the store for - don't trust the pickers, but for basic repeat stuff I order on line and easy
09:08:14 <Dave from B™> 10, how's your chair doing?
09:08:26 <Dave from B™> Kat, that makes sense
09:08:31 <Kat> I don't let them substitute either
09:10:15 <Kat> I am picky even about basic stuff but it works well and I can stay out of a busy store
09:11:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thought you would like this train picture Dave:
09:11:30 <Kat> Wow!
09:13:10 <Katie> G'mornin'
09:13:35 <Kat> Mornin' Katie
09:13:44 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Katie
09:14:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And if you wondered where SantaFe108 got his name:
09:15:25 <Dave from B™> nice...Corona Arch
09:15:40 <Dave from B™> Even my sogd made that 3.2 miles roundtrip
09:15:46 <Dave from B™> dogs*
09:16:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you do the Canyon Overlook in Zion?
09:16:30 <Kat> SC
09:17:26 <Dave from B™> Kevin, we did not. We did the first mile of Angels Landing and then walked back to the Lodge. Our bodies were exhausted from the Narrows the day before
09:22:20 <ynpvisitor10> Is Excelsior ie? He asks tongue in cheek
09:23:54 <Kat> OF
09:26:54 <ynpvisitor10> Vsnt is ie
09:27:06 <Kat> :)
09:28:18 <JarnoO👑> one of the vents at Fagradalsfjall is going mental. Appears to be the focus of energy, little from the other ones
09:28:24 <JarnoO👑>
09:29:10 <Dave from B™> 10, how many layers are you wearing?
09:47:52 <ynpvisitor10> Dave from B™, not as cold today, 2 breathable layers, 1 medium merino layer, waterproof windbreaker
09:48:33 <Kat> :thumbsup:
09:48:35 <ynpvisitor10> Oops and a fleece pullover
09:48:41 <Kat> Looks nice out there
09:49:14 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy was around 907 i think is what ranger said
09:49:37 <ynpvisitor10> She will enter when she gets back
09:49:49 <Kat> Great thx
09:50:14 <ynpvisitor10> I asked to enter grand. She was cool with that
09:51:23 <Dave from B™> 10, are there any other gazers around?
09:55:02 <Micah(hill)> Good Morning cam watchers.
09:55:10 <Micah(hill)> I plan to be on the Hill most of the day.
09:55:40 <:)> thsts nice:)
09:55:42 <Micah(hill)> The cam has my explicit permission to zoom in on me if your bored. I'm in blue or green depending on temp. Cheers!
09:55:52 <:)> thats**
09:56:01 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Micah
09:56:29 <Micah(hill)> Headed up to Aurum. Have a great day.
09:58:36 <Kat> :D
10:00:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well there is that Perry Mason music again.
10:00:31 <Kat> Have fun kevin!
10:01:53 <KorbenC> Sounds like F&M might be in event cycle?
10:02:23 <KorbenC> "Bottom Vent ie, runoff halfway to Firehole."
10:04:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> HW splash
10:04:36 <Dave from B™> Micah might need to take a detour
10:04:40 <Dave from B™> to BH first
10:07:45 <Eric> Good Morning!
10:07:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
10:08:04 <Eric> Uggg, the simple switch could fix this!
10:08:07 <Eric> Hi Kevin
10:08:20 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
10:08:43 <Eric> Hi Dave! You back home?
10:09:32 <Dave from B™> Got home Sunday at noon
10:09:46 <Eric> Welcome back to real life :-D
10:10:02 <Eric> Your trip looked amazing
10:10:47 <Dave from B™> It was a blast.
10:11:32 <Eric> Speaking of blast...looks like Starship SN15 will attempt to launch tomorrow.
10:11:55 <Dave from B™> #15 already. What happened to 11-14?
10:12:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They decided to save time and blow them up on the ground?
10:13:01 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
10:15:54 <Eric> Those numbers where reserved for a specific model of starship. They learned what they needed to from 8-10 and moved on to 15-20
10:16:12 <Eric> They probably won't use all those numbers either.
10:16:42 <Eric> Rapid prototyping is the model for the future of space flight.
10:17:15 <Eric> spend 20 years and hope you get it right or blow a lot of things up in 5-10 years and be sure you got it right.
10:17:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I sure wouldn't want to be the first man to ride that.
10:17:45 <Eric> I would feel way more comfortable riding a spaceX ship than a NASA one that has never been flown!
10:18:40 <Dave from B™> You won't find me on any future spaceship
10:18:48 <Eric> The problem is the public doesn't understand iterative development...way safer than monolithic development.
10:20:11 <Eric> Nobody will ride these prototypes. They are made cheap and designed to test certain aspects of the craft.
10:22:48 <Eric> Love that Craig is getting some F&M sits! I hope he gets one.
10:23:24 <Jeff> im hoping all the gazers in the park can get F&M
10:23:46 <Eric> I assume he will move North tomorrow morning
10:24:03 <Eric> Hi Jeff
10:24:11 <Jeff> Hi Eric
10:24:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Has he seen an F&M?
10:25:13 <Eric> I don't think so...but maybe he will chime in here :-D
10:25:52 <ynpvisitor101> Eric, not sure i will visit norris, dont want to get sucked in there this early
10:26:17 <Dave from B™> 10 added another digit
10:26:23 <ynpvisitor101> Saw the end if FM, no start
10:26:43 <Eric> I like F&M better than Steamboat, so I think you are doing the right thing :-D
10:26:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The start is the good part.
10:27:03 <Jeff> i cant say if i like F&M yet
10:27:07 <Eric> Don't get me wrong...Steamboat is awesome, but F&M is otherworldly :-D
10:27:29 <Eric> Yep, Agree Kevin...the start is the best part
10:27:44 <Eric> Like watching a concert of geysers erupt.
10:27:51 <Dave from B™> I like the mad scramble to get all the bikes away from F&M
10:28:23 <Eric> haha, I have only seen it during a thunder/lightning/rainstorm so nobody cared about bikes.
10:28:53 <Eric> Nothing like watching F&M while lightning is striking.
10:28:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> All the Morning Glory tourists look at us like we are nuts when it is sunny and we start putting on rain gear.
10:29:28 <Eric> haha, I'm sure Kevin. Would love to have that opportunity.
10:29:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you get the proper light the rainbows are stunning.
10:31:10 <Eric> This webcam artifacting is really aweful.
10:32:54 <Jeff> yea its not good
10:34:32 <Eric> So they did crank the FPS down to 15, but the resolution is still at 1280x720. Looks like they also reduced the bitrate down so we don't get stutters, but it's making the compression look like crap all the time.
10:35:15 <Eric> I bet the stream has been pretty "stable" lately?
10:36:33 <Jeff> other than the artifacting it seems like its been pretty stable on my end.
10:36:56 <KorbenC> same here
10:39:33 <Eric> Yep, that is because they forced the bitrate of the stream very low < 1kbps, which at this resolution is making everything compress hard. But not going beyond the bandwidth of the communications line.
10:40:08 <Eric> Now if they can just reduce the resolution down one step, I think it would improve a lot.
10:40:35 <Eric> Lion
10:41:05 <Eric> I assume ini
10:41:10 <Eric> chug chug start
10:41:57 <Dave from B™> Something needs to be done. This isn't an enjoyable experience
10:43:26 <Kat> Yes initial Eric
10:43:39 <Bombur> Crank up the bitrate stepwise to find a sweet spot
10:44:12 <Siegmund> ah, to have the 2006 cam back :)
10:44:18 <Bombur> Yellowstone deserves better. Look how good the video is from Iceland's volcano, and there was no infrastructure there at all.
10:44:21 <Eric> They need to reduce resolution...we already know the bitrate can't be much higher than it is.
10:44:53 <Kat> Eric, I can message Dave K if you like
10:44:54 <Bombur> That's OK, the resolution was a lot higher than previously
10:45:07 <Eric> The problem is the camop view sucks a good portion of the bandwidth :-(
10:45:58 <Dave from B™> I thought we were getting bandwidth upgrades in the park
10:47:32 <Eric> Taking the resolution to 480P puts the compression/bitrate at the correct levels for the bandwidth they have.
10:47:35 <Bombur> Maybe we should ask Elon Musk about Starlink (half-humorously)
10:48:07 <Eric> Starlink would be a much better option if it provided reliably service from the Ranger Station!
10:48:21 <Eric> We could run full HD 60 fps!
10:49:12 <Eric> The good thing is it's easier to change the network on the Ranger station then on the top of the Inn.
10:49:14 <Dave from B™> I wonder if GT would be allowed to pay for Starlink option
10:49:21 <Jeff> watching these streams at 1080P60 would be amazing
10:49:37 <Eric> Starlink would be WAY cheaper than what they are paying for their T1 Dave.
10:50:38 <Eric> Snow on the dish might be an issue, no idea how that works.
10:50:59 <Bombur> Snow and heavy rain bomb my DirecTV dish
10:51:20 <Eric> Or maybe even use it as a bargaining chip with US Worst for better bandwidth at the same price.
10:51:29 <Jeff> yea the snow and rain bomb the DirecTV at lower hams
10:51:46 <Eric> DirectTV is not the same as starlink....much lower satellites.
10:52:11 <Eric> shouldn't need as much power, but snow could still make it bad.
10:52:21 <JarnoO👑> but you won't get much further if the dish is filled with snow even then
10:52:35 <Bombur> Yeah I think its interference with the downlink signal
10:53:05 <Bombur> Snow on the dish is not a problem -- it's active precipitation that messes it up. So its what the atmosphere is doing
10:53:13 <Jeff> i have a friend who currently has starlink and whenever they have any sort of bad weather his internet goes to trash
10:53:21 <Eric>
11:07:29 <JarnoO👑> 1059:36 long 4m12s
11:09:35 <JarnoO👑> Aurum
11:09:40 <KorbenC> .
11:09:41 <KorbenC> .
11:09:41 <KorbenC> .
11:09:41 <KorbenC> .
11:10:16 <Dave from B™> nice
11:10:20 <JarnoO👑> probably one of my most anticlimactic Aurum calls - was well underway before I even realized what that plume was
11:21:12 <JarnoO👑> Daisy 1117
11:21:30 <JarnoO👑> splish splash
11:23:02 <BenVL> Pixelation is still really bad on my end
11:23:13 <JarnoO👑> as is here
11:23:27 <JarnoO👑> it has its good times but overall it's terrible
11:26:06 <Craig M> morning
11:26:11 <Craig M> i mean good morning
11:26:12 <Craig M> lol
11:26:21 <JarnoO👑> morning CraigM
11:26:26 <KorbenC> wait
11:26:31 <KorbenC> why is Micah running like Crazy
11:26:41 <KorbenC> Depression?
11:26:45 <JarnoO👑> something in the Dwarfs maybe?
11:26:47 <KorbenC> Can we pan left maybe?
11:27:31 <ynpvisitor6> Does 1500 sound good guess for next riverside
11:28:08 <Eric> Otter
11:28:10 <JarnoO👑> it sits now at 20h20m - about 1500 I'd expect Riverside to at least be in overflow
11:28:10 <KorbenC> 6, yea
11:28:18 <KorbenC> Thats what I was thinking when I looked at the interval
11:29:16 <Eric> averages says Next Riverside 1420
11:30:38 <Craig M> relay from the man in the field, scissors and dep steam blew in his face which made him think depp
11:30:59 <JarnoO👑> lol
11:31:16 <KorbenC> Craig M, are we both txting Micah? lol
11:33:16 <ynpvisitor6> I went to look at FM, came back to Grotto, ravens had zipper open on my pack lol
11:33:31 <KorbenC> haha
11:33:35 <ynpvisitor6> Eric, thanks on rside
11:33:39 <JarnoO👑> smart birds
11:33:55 <JarnoO👑> at least they didn't occupy your seat
11:34:04 <Dave from B™> Yeah, but where they sitting in your chair?
11:34:21 <ynpvisitor6> I took my chair
11:34:21 <Dave from B™> They are smart
11:35:38 <ynpvisitor6> This morning a mtn bluebird kept flying against the window if my jeep. I opened the window but it wouldnt fly in
11:36:10 <JarnoO👑> it was probably looking for water and thought your window was that
11:37:03 <JarnoO👑> maybe you could put a dish outside with water tomorrow morning - it gets its water and you get to enjoy a bird :)
11:38:02 <JarnoO👑> LC
11:38:07 <KorbenC> Jo, mtn bluebirds are evil :P
11:38:51 <KorbenC> Here they watch you, and when you are not looking they will fly into the back of your head, esspecialy when oyu are near their water source or food.
11:39:17 <JarnoO👑> defending their territory I reckon
11:40:17 <JarnoO👑> they're apparantly very territorous when there's a female on the nest
11:40:26 <KorbenC> Yup, usually not hard enough to hurt, all you feel is a "thud"
11:40:59 <KorbenC> and here there are ALOT, esspecialy once you get up into the mountains, they are everywhere.
11:41:08 <KorbenC> I have one sitting out my window right now, lol.
11:42:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I just got booted from controls.
11:42:57 <KorbenC> So, the camera only has good resolution when it is looking at the flag pole?
11:43:21 <Craig M> less moving objects
11:43:29 <JarnoO👑> and it can stack frames
11:43:40 <Dave from B™> Kevin, does thta mean someone is fine tuning the controls?
11:43:40 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
11:43:44 <BenVL> KorbenC, more likely the flagpole is simple enough it masks the problem
11:44:13 <KorbenC> Kevin, did oyu pan us to OF?
11:44:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am not sure. I don't think so because the streaming died too.
11:44:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No
11:46:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are back
11:56:45 <Eric> They reduce the resolution?
11:57:40 <JarnoO👑> same resolution it appears, though with less pixellation it seems
11:57:51 <JarnoO👑> nevermind
12:00:42 <Eric> Looks like they changed over to VBR...the compression is all over the place.
12:01:21 <Eric> It's definitely much better, but it might stutter again.
12:02:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I wonder if Lion was a one and done.
12:04:15 <Eric> Next Daisy 1321
12:04:29 <KorbenC> Eric, 1327*
12:04:38 <Eric> Nope
12:04:51 <Eric> Highly unlikely
12:05:11 <Eric> It's being very consistent
12:05:57 <Eric> We should see lion any moment I believe
12:06:24 <AYates> Lion
12:06:33 <Eric> Thanks :-D
12:06:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Geyser Hill is teasing today.
12:07:03 <Eric> With gazers sitting there, I knew it couldn't be that far off.
12:07:53 <AYates> I only logged on because I looked away for 2 seconds and it was going when I turned back
12:07:53 <Eric> Put my prediction hat back on :-D
12:08:42 <Eric> Thanks for calling it out AYates
12:15:27 <ynpvisitor6> Grotto Ftn bubbling fir a few mins, no water in pressure pool... hmmmm
12:15:58 <ynpvisitor6> *visible
12:18:36 <JarnoO👑> Craig, did you get any estimate on Grotto Fountain's height yesterday?
12:21:35 <ynpvisitor6> JarnoO👑, id guess 20, maybe a little more
12:22:14 <JarnoO👑> hm, that conforms with the previous entries of post-marathon Fountains being shorter than their non-marathon counterparts
12:22:54 <ynpvisitor6> Does Grotto erupt without pressure pool rising?
12:24:22 <JarnoO👑> don't know. Maybe it did when Grotto Fountain laid dormant in 2017
12:25:16 <ynpvisitor6> Ok, havent seen any water rise all morning, have heard some good water churning in grotto
12:26:16 <JarnoO👑> how was Marathon Pool?
12:26:22 <AYates> It's not supposed to, but I wouldn't say it never has
12:26:48 <ynpvisitor6> Have it all to myself, some times it's nice to chill alone
12:28:36 <AYates> That used to me one of my favorite spots to sit, assuming you aren't trying to catch something on the hill you're in a pretty good location to see stuff
12:34:59 <ynpvisitor6> JarnoO👑, marathon pool looked full, though i dont know for sure what exactly is full
12:35:42 <JarnoO👑> I think you'll be getting a good Grotto Fountain then if previous non-marathon Fountains hold
12:53:10 <AYates> of
12:53:42 <KorbenC> Steam from indy sounds nice
12:54:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF interval was a long
12:55:35 <JarnoO👑> zzzz
12:56:14 <AYates> I had 12:53:14
12:56:22 <AYates> It just wanted to make sure that we didn't see anything of castle
12:57:19 <AYates> Can't give an exact end due to freeze but I'd say 57:46 or 47
12:57:59 <AYates> *56:46 or 47 typo
12:59:22 <JarnoO👑> 1252:58 long 3m41s
13:05:34 <JarnoO👑> Giantess water looks high
13:09:04 <JarnoO👑> I think the stream is at 25fps but it doesn't have variable bitrate anymore. If they enable VBR I think there would be better uptime, though at the cost of pixellation
13:09:29 <Eric> They changed it over this morning Jarno
13:10:26 <JarnoO👑> this morning it was still pixelling at lower framerate. I think when Kevin lost controls they changed it again
13:13:24 <JarnoO👑> at least I have Fagradalsfjall to look at while this cam is throwing tantrums
13:17:39 <11> Daisy is close
13:18:29 <11> ~3/4 mile down basin
13:19:39 <ynpvisitor10> Giantess threw some good steam
13:20:31 <ynpvisitor10> I'm down at hams taking a break
13:21:12 <ynpvisitor10> Lion
13:21:26 <11> nice partly cloudy
13:25:13 <JarnoO👑> I wonder what that Vault note is supposed to mean. Sounds very cryptic, with some guy named "Han" in there
13:25:34 <KorbenC> Han is 1/2 a foot I think
13:26:09 <JarnoO👑> ah, makes sense
13:26:34 <KorbenC> I think the first sentence means "FIlled to less than 1/2 foot below rim" :)
13:28:27 <KorbenC> uhoh
13:34:59 <KorbenC> :daisy:
13:38:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Indy
13:38:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> .
13:38:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> .
13:38:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> .
13:38:28 <KorbenC> .
13:38:28 <11> Is the end near for the camera?
13:38:28 <KorbenC> .
13:38:28 <KorbenC> .
13:38:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> .
13:39:52 <KorbenC> Camera is horrible
13:42:15 <Kitt> quite a few people waiting for bee
13:42:27 <KorbenC> we need a BH + Giantess SFT
13:42:38 <Kitt> Looks like steam is headed straight for camera thought
13:42:41 <Jeff> that would be nice korben
13:42:51 <Dave from B™> This is a camera?
13:43:06 <Dave from B™> Looks like a group of still photos to me
13:43:12 <KorbenC> BH
13:43:20 <BenVL> Low wind, this could be a nice one
13:43:20 <KorbenC> I think, cam froze
13:43:22 <KorbenC> yes
13:44:08 <KorbenC> very nice one
13:45:03 <Kat> Very nice
13:45:08 <Jeff> beautiful eruption
13:45:56 <Kitt> will be shower the people?
13:46:20 <Kitt> maybe
13:46:49 <JarnoO👑> ah, I see how it is
13:47:02 <JarnoO👑> I'm off for a bit and this thing starts going
13:47:22 <KorbenC> Be thankful it wasn't Giantess
13:47:41 <JarnoO👑> at least there's /getvideo
13:51:05 <JarnoO👑> Indicator lead about 11 minutes, total about 14-ish; Beehive 1342:42 5m02s
13:51:17 <BenVL> Looks to me like it's having a more pronounced steamphase than last year
13:52:31 <JarnoO👑> I think water is at the SB logger. Temperature rise seems steeper than with the diurnal cycle
14:05:09 <JarnoO👑> SE rim
14:05:09 <JarnoO👑> big
14:05:39 <KorbenC> yeah, that was big
14:08:30 <JarnoO👑> afternoon Greg
14:09:57 <Greg (working)> Hi JarnoO
14:10:07 <JarnoO👑> Riverside
14:11:14 <JarnoO👑> must have averaged at 5h45m the last 24h
14:16:47 <JarnoO👑> good to see webcam and in-basin duration for Beehive match at 5m02s
14:22:11 <JarnoO👑> uhm, thanks for the great visibility, Fluffy
14:24:47 <ynpvisitor11> Hmmmm, pressure pool hasnt dropped, GF bubbling is building
14:25:07 <JarnoO👑> Go Grotto Fountain?
14:25:09 <ynpvisitor11> Never seen this
14:25:51 <ynpvisitor11> 24 mins of pool up
14:26:05 <JarnoO👑> that's quite some time
14:26:38 <KorbenC> I have seen pool up followed by a GF, both times I saw GF last year?
14:27:15 <KorbenC> Both of which were massive and ended up with more of a Lion like jetting.
14:28:40 <JarnoO👑> Lion time
14:30:33 <JarnoO👑> maybe we can have Grand to Lion? Both are due and it wouldn't be so nice to miss one of them for the other
14:31:16 <JarnoO👑> also some SE rim
14:36:42 <JarnoO👑> hi Lion
14:36:56 <JarnoO👑> minor so far
14:37:32 <KorbenC> That's probably end of series.
14:38:08 <JarnoO👑> I wouldn't be so certain about that
14:39:02 <KorbenC> I don't trust a minor, esspecialy when its the 4th in the series
14:39:50 <JarnoO👑> Turban 1436
14:40:06 <JarnoO👑> look for the next Lion in about 10-20 minutes
14:40:15 <JarnoO👑> so 1456 or so
14:40:20 <JarnoO👑> at most
14:41:10 <JarnoO👑> roar
14:42:00 <JarnoO👑> Grotto Fountain 1434 ns
14:42:24 <JarnoO👑> I guess Indicator Pool staying up meant it was the eruptive cycle
14:42:38 <Micah(Lion)> JarnoO how long should I give this until I walk away.
14:43:23 <JarnoO👑> after about 1506 it starts to become unlikely for the series to continue, with 40 minutes I'd be certain of series end
14:43:50 <Micah(Lion)> 10-4. Aurum's next on the docket anyways.
14:43:57 <JarnoO👑> LC
14:44:21 <Micah(Lion)> Yep. 1443
14:45:12 <JarnoO👑> Grotto 1438ns
14:45:13 <Micah(Lion)> Goggles spring is up with some bubbles. I doubt it will hold for an extended though
14:45:22 <JarnoO👑> Guess no big Fountain for Craig then
14:45:54 <Micah(Lion)> Yes on the big Fountain he just hasn't entered it yet.
14:46:05 <Micah(Lion)> Dan could see spikes over the trees from Castle.
14:46:06 <JarnoO👑> oh, nice
14:46:22 <Micah(Lion)> We've all been chattering since it's just us.
14:46:32 <Micah(Lion)> Did you guys see the 4 people on dome just before Indy?
14:46:49 <JarnoO👑> cam was downbasin for Daisy
14:46:56 <Micah(Lion)> Big boil on Giantess now.
14:47:11 <Micah(Lion)> Sustained.
14:47:26 <JarnoO👑> SE rim?
14:47:55 <Micah(Lion)> North. Wouldn't be surprised if it overflowed.
14:48:17 <Micah(Lion)> Goggles spring has been up for 3 minutes. We might be going into an extended fill.
14:48:32 <JarnoO👑> ah, all I see is dense steam from the SE rim, virtually nothing from N
14:48:52 <Dave from B™> So, there were 4 people off trail?
14:49:12 <Micah(Lion)> Yes. Right on the edge of dome.
14:49:24 <Kat> Here comes the craziness
14:49:29 <Micah(Lion)> They saw Mark and I coming for them and fled.
14:49:41 <KorbenC> lol
14:49:42 <Kat> :)
14:49:58 <JarnoO👑> was about to ask if they were legally off-trail but fleeing upon seeing a ranger makes that quite unlikely
14:50:07 <KorbenC> I will have to tell you about the idiots stuck in geyser mud later Micah :D
14:50:42 <KorbenC> Aurum looks happy
14:50:48 <JarnoO👑> though still not as crazy as that one guy last year sticking his fist into GHG-13
14:51:04 <Micah(Lion)> We are in an extended fill at Goggles.
14:51:46 <JarnoO👑> probably won't result in much as far as NG is concerned but benefit of the doubt? :)
14:51:48 <Kat> Off boardwalk!
14:52:06 <Kat> ??
14:52:10 <Micah(Lion)> I can dream dammit.
14:52:18 <JarnoO👑> haha
14:52:33 <Micah(Lion)> Lion roar.
14:52:38 <KorbenC> Micah(Lion), by stating that you are dreaming you are recognizing the conscious fact that NG won't erupt :P
14:52:45 <Micah(Lion)> Some water but not enough to initiate.
14:53:19 <Micah(Lion)> I woild love a 42 minute fill.
14:53:35 <Micah(Lion)> Heck give me a 14.
14:54:37 <JarnoO👑> another roar
14:55:09 <JarnoO👑> almost Turban time
14:55:18 <Micah(Lion)> Grand now.
14:55:23 <Micah(Lion)> 1454 frs
14:55:48 <Micah(Lion)> Roar
14:58:53 <JarnoO👑> looks like DanS is at Grand
15:01:55 <Micah(Lion)> 15 minutes into the fill
15:02:22 <Micah(Lion)> Still up. Very frequent weak roars and grumbles out of Lion.
15:02:40 <JarnoO👑> think it's done for
15:03:19 <Craig M> i'll never forget the pain of a 55 minute NG fill after an 8 Lion series that suddenly had a big bubble in NG then immediately drained like a bath tub
15:03:30 <KorbenC> My prediction likely stands correct than :D
15:04:02 <JarnoO👑> this time it does
15:05:18 <AYates> Time will confirm but arty
15:05:29 <AYates> Been going for at least a minute now
15:10:56 <Eric> I see we are back to stuttering webcam :-(
15:11:27 <JarnoO👑> appears NPS chose for image quality over uptime
15:11:39 <Eric> haha..."image quality" :-P
15:11:57 <JarnoO👑> at least no pixellation
15:12:01 <Eric> It's horrible still. They have the color set poorly and the resolution too high.
15:12:38 <Eric> interesting, the UNNG behind pump is active
15:12:52 <Eric> You can see water perking up
15:12:57 <JarnoO👑> I don't notice much of that as I put a filter over VLC's stream to make the colors more vibrant
15:13:36 <JarnoO👑> maybe a bit too vibrant as the grass appears to still be yellow while on my end it's green
15:13:50 <Eric> Well, we are losing a lot of details because of it...not just a color issue
15:14:44 <1234567> the current image looks like a postcard from the 1950's
15:14:47 <Eric> setting color to outdoors, resolution to 480p @ 15fps with 1kbps would most likely come close to solving the issues.
15:15:50 <Eric> I don't think whoever is setting up the video actually understands how video works or has some weird constraints I don't know about.
15:18:48 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat for the first time in awhile. Have a grrrreat evening everyone!
15:19:05 <JarnoO👑> cya Dave
15:20:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> bye
15:20:25 <Eric> Night Dave
15:21:15 <Eric> I assume we just missed riverside earlier?
15:21:29 <JarnoO👑> 1409ns
15:21:30 <Eric> ohh, nevermind :-
15:21:47 <Eric> early enough it had dropped off the eruptions here
15:22:20 <JarnoO👑> first time in a while the recent eruptions widget has been solely eruptions within the last hour
15:22:36 <Eric> Yes, quite busy.
15:23:38 <Eric> The 1420 prediction wasn't bad for a triple interval :-D
15:24:37 <Eric> Wow...the daisy prediction was Way off though :-(
15:25:03 <Eric> I guess a 12 interval prediction is harder :-P
15:25:38 <Eric> oh, no...guess that was a single interval
15:25:52 <Eric> 2h17m was very long.
15:26:22 <linda> howdy
15:26:27 <JarnoO👑> must've been some unfavorable wind
15:26:29 <Eric> Hi Linda
15:26:30 <JarnoO👑> afternoon Linda
15:26:38 <Eric> doesn't look like much wind Jarno
15:26:40 <linda> Eric, hiJarnoO👑, hi
15:27:50 <JarnoO👑> during OF's 1252 eruption there was still some decent wind blowing to the south
15:29:05 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
15:29:11 <Eric> ahh
15:29:17 <linda> Forestbewithyou, hi
15:29:30 <linda> so got my second shot! yippeee
15:29:35 <JarnoO👑> congrats!
15:29:52 <linda> thx
15:30:12 <Eric> wooohoo
15:30:23 <Forestbewithyou> awesome!
15:30:30 <linda> Eric, definitely, feels good right?
15:30:52 <Eric> Yep
15:31:04 <linda> hehe I'll see how I feel tonight, maybe not so good
15:33:49 <JarnoO👑> the dominant Fagradalsfjall cone looks wonderful at night
15:34:53 <JarnoO👑> looks comparable with how Giantess erupts. It just has its own light rather than depending on other people's :)
15:35:08 <JarnoO👑> Flower
15:35:26 <JarnoO👑> almost sub-2h again
15:44:41 <JarnoO👑> 1534:±53 ±3m17s
15:52:02 <Micah(Aurum)> Nothing else is happening so here I am.
15:52:42 <Micah(Aurum)> Giantess is hot. But Vault is like 2-3 inches from the rim and I havent really seen any big boils.
15:53:27 <JarnoO👑> hm, that's about 3 inches up from 1319
16:02:46 <JarnoO👑> 1555:34 long 4m14s
16:04:01 <JarnoO👑> LC ie
16:05:08 <Eric> Grade and Gravel at North Entrance...looks like new road might go in pretty soon.
16:06:36 <Eric> Much shorter Daisy this time
16:06:38 <JarnoO👑> Aurum static 1604?
16:07:24 <Eric> Very possible Jarno
16:07:35 <Eric> timing is right
16:07:49 <Eric> Someone is standing there though, maybe micah
16:08:10 <Eric> Yep, I doubt he missed it :-D
16:08:45 <Eric> Still looks hot
16:09:15 <Eric> average over last 7 show Aurum 16:33 +- 24m
16:09:27 <Eric> Which is a pretty tight window for aurum!
16:09:53 <JarnoO👑> September 2018 really called it to order
16:10:58 <Eric> They gotta get back for OF! No time for something like Aurum :-P
16:11:16 <Greg 🤠> haha
16:11:33 <Eric> Hi Greg
16:12:00 <Greg 🤠> Hi Eric
16:12:23 <Eric> Nice boil
16:13:00 <Eric> Micah watching giantess boil?
16:13:59 <JarnoO👑> Giantess going right now would be wonderful. Up close and personal :)
16:14:20 <Micah> Yes I am. These are nice
16:14:26 <JarnoO👑> There appears to have been definitely some overflow across all rims recently, quite dark
16:14:41 <Micah> I'm not leaving Aurum unless I feel thumps tho
16:15:01 <JarnoO👑> Water also sits quite high, can barely make out parts of the rims
16:15:06 <JarnoO👑> white ring*
16:15:16 <Eric> Good Call! Aurum is due
16:15:53 <Micah> Yeah. I've been seeing steady white on North for a little bit. Just calmed down. Wind just picked up a little.
16:16:00 <Eric> doesn't look too high
16:16:15 <Kat> Hi Joe - hows the arrow working for you.
16:16:21 <JarnoO👑> Giantess needs a wind shield :)
16:16:31 <Eric> We could see vents on the cam
16:17:01 <Micah> It's not particularly high no.
16:17:42 <Micah> All side vents are full at Aurum. Vent 3 is having independent eruptions. We're primed.
16:17:58 <Eric> Yep, zoomed in on max here :-D
16:18:22 <Micah> ~~~~~~~~~~
16:18:41 <JarnoO👑> *waves back*
16:18:47 <Eric> Our view is like 30-45 seconds behind live....
16:21:13 <Micah> It always makes me so curious how people will just walk right by Aurum. And then they get ENAMORED with Beach Spring.
16:21:39 <JarnoO👑> proably its name
16:22:14 <Greg 🤠> and if they stand right in the way of Aurum, don't they know we are watching. haha
16:22:33 <JarnoO👑> such ignorance smh ;)
16:22:35 <Micah> Haha
16:22:53 <Micah> I mean you will probably see me jump when it starts. It gets me every time.
16:24:04 <Eric> 18m away from the sweet spot of Aurum eruptions.
16:24:11 <Micah> So Eric what are the stakes for if it goes outside your window. Full payment of a meal at Lower Hams?
16:24:31 <Eric> hmmm, if goes within then full meal for me?
16:24:50 <Micah> Yup. I'll pay. If it goes out. You pay.
16:25:04 <Eric> hmmmm, not sure I love and trust Aurum enough :-P
16:25:04 <Micah> Just a friendly wager.
16:25:15 <JarnoO👑> how about you reinstate Aurum predictions by GT :)
16:25:37 <Micah> Talk to Will lol
16:25:55 <Eric> Also not sure if I am making it to the park yet, so don't want to disappoint. If I am coming in, it will probably be living in the backcountry.
16:26:38 <Eric> We are in my window and should be for the next 31m
16:29:04 <Micah> Little Cub.
16:29:44 <Micah> That's an odd interval. I wonder if it was stuck
16:30:33 <JarnoO👑> 25 minutes seems like a normal interval?
16:30:48 <JarnoO👑> previous eruption must've been about 3 minutes though
16:31:53 <Micah> I must have missed one.
16:31:54 <JarnoO👑> and done
16:32:27 <Micah> I saw singlet erupting today too
16:32:48 <JarnoO👑> I wonder if LCs outside Lion series are shorter than those within
16:33:08 <JarnoO👑> where's that one again?
16:33:38 <Micah> It's a little sput in Doublet's runoff
16:33:57 <Eric> Catchy name :-D
16:34:15 <JarnoO👑> oh yeah... I vaguely remember something something in that area
16:34:31 <Eric> I think it's officially a UNNG
16:34:56 <Micah> Big surge from Aurum just shut up the vents momentarily
16:35:08 <Betty> hi all
16:35:09 <JarnoO👑> evening Betty
16:35:25 <Betty> evening Jarno
16:35:25 <Kat> Betty, Hi
16:35:46 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
16:35:51 <Betty> hi Kat
16:36:07 <Greg 🤠> Hi Kat, Hi Betty
16:36:15 <JarnoO👑> Singlet doesn't have an UNNG designation in Geysers of Yellowstone. Does have a paragraph dedicated to it after Doublet's description
16:36:26 <Betty> hey Greg
16:36:43 <Eric> Hi Betty
16:36:57 <Eric> ahhh, Ok...thanks Jarno
16:37:03 <Betty> hi Eric
16:37:09 <Micah> Giantess boil
16:37:39 <Betty> seems you are busy, Micah
16:38:00 <Micah> Not really. Now that BH and Lion are done. It's quiet.
16:40:20 <Micah> And I'm not invested in Depression really.
16:40:41 <Eric> 1m to Aurum sweet spot :-D
16:41:42 <Micah> I thought it was 54?
16:41:48 <Micah> 1633+24?
16:42:41 <Eric> Yep
16:43:01 <Eric> hmmm, weird
16:43:38 <Micah> Wish the wind would die down a little so giantess would start boiling again
16:43:47 <Eric> Not sure what I was looking at there
16:44:25 <JarnoO👑> I think tomorrow morning has a better chance for Giantess. Winds should have calmed down by then before the cycle starts again
16:44:26 <Craig M> blow on giantess the other way to cancel it out
16:44:40 <Craig M> or bring a big fan
16:44:41 <Micah> Well I'll be working so it will surely erupt.
16:45:53 <Micah> Another surge.
16:47:14 <JarnoO👑> at this speed it won't be looking so hot for Eric's Aurum prediction
16:47:45 <Micah> Not unless it pulls it together in the next 7 minutes
16:48:44 <JarnoO👑> burp
16:49:14 <Micah> Wasting its potential on all these crappy boils.
16:49:24 <Micah> Going right back in the vent.
16:51:26 <Eric> Erupt damn you Aurum!
16:51:45 <Eric> technically, not my prediction...but the averages of the last 7 :-P
16:51:58 <Eric> It's math
16:52:01 <JarnoO👑> looks like Eric will be buying you a meal, Micah
16:52:28 <Micah> Averages are made to be broken. Lol
16:52:37 <Micah> Someone give me back my Sun
16:52:41 <Micah> Please
16:52:49 <Betty> :sun:
16:52:50 <JarnoO👑> :sun:
16:52:56 <Eric> Just a new average after it erupts :-P
16:53:13 <JarnoO👑> oh boy - now Micah's got a binary star system. That's fun
16:53:14 <Micah> This is probably my last Aurum for a while.
16:53:31 <Eric> You have to get it first!
16:53:34 <Micah> I got other things to watch.
16:53:44 <Craig M> like rusty. God's geyser.
16:53:52 <Micah> I will. I just hope it erupts before the Edr closes.
16:54:02 <Eric> I think pump gave up it's energy to rusty
16:54:10 <Eric> :-D
16:54:16 <Micah> My preliminary study of Rusty is coming to a close.
16:54:20 <JarnoO👑> Grotto done
16:54:43 <Eric> come like 3 minutes left in the window!
16:54:55 <Micah> Doublet thumping.
16:55:01 <Eric> Nice
16:56:06 <Micah> Vent 3 just hit a foot. Gonna get carried away.
16:56:47 <Micah> Little cub
16:57:40 <Eric> Window almost over :-(
16:58:02 <Eric> Fail :-(
16:58:16 <Eric> Averages suck
16:58:40 <Eric> and Aurum is great at making you fail!
16:59:13 <Micah> Someone you should talk to if you want to know statistics about Aurum is Demetri.
16:59:20 <Eric> What is the saying, "A watched Aurum never erupts?"
16:59:57 <Eric> Yes, he has a lot of good math on geysers and their cycles!
16:59:58 <Craig M> that and lion initials
17:00:24 <Craig M> whenever i'm waiting for lion, i go watch aurum for a bit and lion erupts behind me and vice versa
17:00:34 <Eric> true
17:00:48 <Craig M> tip toe over to NG like spongebob waiting for the bus in rock bottom
17:01:06 <Eric> Hope you get dinner Micah!
17:01:49 <Eric> I am heading out in a few to go pickup climbing gear to prepare to climb Rainier :-D
17:02:11 <Eric> Doing Crevasse rescue training on Thursday.
17:02:37 <Eric> Have you ever been up Mt. St. Helens Micah?
17:03:27 <Micah> I have not. I'm not a big peak bagger
17:04:13 <Eric> Helens is just fun from a geology standpoint...don't need to be a peak bagger.
17:04:35 <Eric> Cool hike in the Summer/Fall if you are back in the area ever.
17:06:20 <JarnoO👑> Aurum 1705 static
17:06:35 <Betty> yay
17:06:36 <Micah> Yay
17:06:47 <Eric> 8 minutes out of my window...not horrible
17:06:50 <Micah> Smaller than this morning.
17:06:57 <Eric> Greg is sleepy I think :-D
17:07:05 <Micah> It was eye height for 2/3rds of the eruption
17:07:08 <Greg 🤠> cam is slow
17:07:15 <Eric> ohhh, cam is sleepy
17:07:26 <Eric> gone now :-(
17:07:34 <Eric> unless we are still behind?
17:07:39 <Betty> bah :-)
17:07:40 <Micah> 1m25s
17:07:46 <JarnoO👑> not bad
17:08:00 <Eric> Micah is still in the past here!
17:08:48 <JarnoO👑> I'm off for the day. I waited for Aurum to go and it went when the cam wasn't pointed in that direction :P Enjoy Giantess boiling if wind permits
17:08:50 <Eric> Missed it me thinks :-(
17:08:51 <Micah> Dinnertime gang. Have a good evening
17:09:03 <Eric> Yep, I am out too, night all
17:10:12 <Greg 🤠> Night Eric
17:11:24 <Betty> bye Eric
18:21:53 <linda> turned out to be a lovely evening
18:22:16 <Greg 🤠> Yup, how are you feeling?
18:25:59 <Bombur> Sure seems bright for 1830
18:33:48 <linda> Greg 🤠, good so far
18:34:01 <linda> we'll see what over night brings
18:35:21 <Greg 🤠> Right, put a small ice pack over it for a few mins, for about an hour, makes a difference.
18:35:48 <linda> ok, thanks I will
18:52:35 <linda> hey chris
18:52:43 <ChrisO> hey :)
18:55:13 <J> New paroxysm at Etna appears on the brink of starting:
18:55:28 <J> Been a few weeks
18:55:31 <linda> cool
18:57:55 <ChrisO> i see a doggie i think
18:58:22 <linda> or a bush :)
18:58:44 <linda> down there to the right?
18:58:45 <ChrisO> hard to tell sometimes lol
18:58:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Far right is a doggie
18:59:12 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
18:59:24 <ChrisO> yea near the cabin
19:02:59 <Craig M>
19:10:28 <linda> OF
19:11:20 <Craig M> beautiful light
19:13:19 <linda> It is pretty
19:13:59 <Greg 🤠> Beautiful for sure, and the light helps too
19:14:22 <linda> amazing difference from this morning
19:17:41 <linda> and strangely there is no pixelation
19:18:14 <KorbenC> That was a good evening. Got in an ice hike, then went storm chasing :)
19:18:17 <linda> yay doggie
19:18:30 <linda> KorbenC, hi, sounds like fun
19:18:40 <KorbenC> linda, hi
19:18:40 <Greg 🤠> nice
19:18:52 <KorbenC> It very much so was, caught some nice hail and a wall cloud :)
19:19:35 <linda> but did they catch you?
19:19:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ice hike. Fun? :p
19:19:49 <KorbenC> They tried to catch me, but failed.
19:19:56 <KorbenC> Kevin, no ice this hike,
19:24:02 <Laura> Bison!
19:24:18 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
19:24:27 <linda> :)
19:25:27 <Greg 🤠> This zoom is great,
19:25:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Needs a shave.
19:25:39 <linda> nice

20:13:51 <d> rjust right
20:25:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
20:26:22 <Greg 🤠> Just waking up?
20:27:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> After my shift I slept for 3 hours. Sort of in and out not but crab fishing is keeping me awake now.
20:28:13 <linda> time to get up
20:28:22 <Greg 🤠> You deserved a break today....
20:29:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was a busy weekend. Got drafted to be a car attendant on two runs of the train. Waling up and down a moving train isn't easy.
20:30:34 <linda> I imagine not
20:30:56 <Greg 🤠> I can imagine, like walking after having one two many
20:31:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You have to learn walking with a lot of back and forth motion.
20:33:05 <Bombur> Hmm, Flood Geyser
20:48:12 <Greg 🤠> OF
20:55:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice manifest at Flagstaff at 1946 with strong haze, a bonnet and a pony.
20:56:23 <Greg 🤠> Kool, I will check it out in a bit
20:58:51 <Greg 🤠> Sun is setting once again on the magical place we call Parkadise. Thanks for tagging along, have a great evening and always keep smiling.
20:59:00 <Greg 🤠> Controls have been released
21:02:54 <linda> Greg 🤠, night
21:03:21 <Greg 🤠> Night Linda
21:09:29 <Greg 🤠> Kevin, thanks for the headsup about Flag.
21:14:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was a good train.
21:14:54 <Greg 🤠> :grand:
22:16:22 <ynpvisitor> Wow, can see a lot when they have the spot lights on OF.
22:17:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This cam does better in the knight than the old one.
22:18:02 <ynpvisitor> Wish we could see the midnight bees. Is this as far zoomed out as it goes?
22:18:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. It can be set from Grand to BH
22:19:18 <ynpvisitor> The parking lot lights do not flair the cam as much. Can actually see
22:19:50 <ynpvisitor> Didn't the old cam do Castle to BH?
22:20:17 <ynpvisitor> Been so long that it worked, I can not remember
22:21:15 <ynpvisitor> We even may see the city lights from Alaska when they are visible
22:21:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No, they are about the same width.
22:23:35 <ynpvisitor> Well if they could replace the string and cans with Nomex thread and Stainless steel, we could get rid of the circle.
22:23:48 <ynpvisitor> That should be ruty tin cans
22:23:54 <ynpvisitor> rusty
22:24:20 <ynpvisitor> Who knew?
22:25:49 <ynpvisitor> So you have your order in for astro turf? I hear they are going to ban lawns everywhere but golf courses and Casinos.
22:26:58 <ynpvisitor> Next they will ban ice and make them play hockey and curl on synthetic ice.
22:27:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I only have a tiny patch of grass mostly for grandkids.
22:32:38 <ynpvisitor> Not to worry, they will ban them next. Takes too much water and produces CO2.
22:33:11 <ynpvisitor> They will replace them with electric ones you plug in at night
22:34:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably too much methane from my chickens too.
22:35:21 <ynpvisitor> Soy eggs
22:36:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :P
22:39:18 <ynpvisitor> At least we are old enough, we may not live to see the end of the world as we knew it. I am sure my grandma thought the same thing living to 99 and being born the same year, 1899.
22:41:38 <ynpvisitor> You would know, being born about the same time!
22:42:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :) I am just glad I am on this end of the life cycle not just starting out.
22:43:32 <ynpvisitor> I am sure every generation feels about the same. I can remember a few "the end of the world is coming" events.
22:44:10 <ynpvisitor> Only 21 years ago we had Y2K?
22:44:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Little did they know about y2k20!
22:45:36 <ynpvisitor> Remember when they said the only cars that would work after midnght were pintos and gremlins?
22:48:52 <ynpvisitor> I think the sheep are getting smart. The herder can only cry wolf so may times before the sheep stop listening. And when the sheep look at the neighbors flock and see they are happy, they are willing to give up their herder.
22:49:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a Pinto with a few gremlins in it...
22:50:08 <ynpvisitor> Closest thing to a pinto, my wife had a maverick when I met her.
22:50:53 <ynpvisitor> A bean geyser?
22:51:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Pinto wasn't a bad car. It was nice to drive. Handled wind better than any other car I have owned.
22:52:43 <ynpvisitor> A munster or is it a character from the other show is on Green acres.
22:53:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Herman was a munster.
22:53:28 <ynpvisitor> One of the bank robbers
22:53:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is Grandpa with a bad hair cut.
22:54:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He was also a cop on Car 54
22:56:37 <ynpvisitor> About the same hair with out the extra Brylcreem
22:57:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A hot air gun running at warp speed...
22:58:21 <ynpvisitor> I had a friend with one of the original honda cars. The motor cycle people would not admit selling them, and the car people said they never were a car.
22:59:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I remember those. Sold new for about $1500. Extra windup key was extra.
23:00:24 <ynpvisitor> Well, time to know nothing. Enjoy the cool evening before Summer hits.
23:01:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will. It will soon be brutal.
