05:31:38 <L> Second?
06:27:47 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno
06:27:56 <JarnoO> morning all
06:28:03 <KorbenC> I assume it goes still?
06:28:12 <JarnoO> yes
06:28:18 <KorbenC> :)
06:28:51 <JarnoO> today we'll likely find out against who the Netherlands will be playing in the round of 16. Hopefully not a team from the pool of death
06:29:09 <KorbenC> TS Claudette continues slamming the gulf coast, had a few tornado warnings last night.
06:29:15 <KorbenC> team from the pool of death?
06:29:43 <JarnoO> Portugal, France, Germany and Hungary
06:29:58 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
06:30:06 <JarnoO> Hungary is not particularly a decent team, but they're tough
06:30:11 <KorbenC> I was about to say.
06:30:33 <JarnoO> It would've been pool of death Ɨ2 with Spain instead of Hungary
06:30:47 <KorbenC> Hopefully you aren't playing against Portugal, unless the American stereotype that they are really good at soccer isn't right.
06:31:14 <JarnoO> they're a good soccer country, that's for sure
06:31:21 <JarnoO> and they have Ronaldo
06:32:02 <KorbenC> That certainly does give them an advantage
06:32:59 <JarnoO> yes, but if there's no teamplay you don't have any advantage of having one of the best players in the world
06:33:09 <KorbenC> good point
06:33:25 <KorbenC> Wait, does Spain still have Messi?
06:33:35 <JarnoO> Messi is Argentinian
06:33:51 <KorbenC> I thought he played for Barcelona at one point?
06:34:45 <JarnoO> he does still, but he isn't in the national eleven of Spain and wouldn't be eligible either because he doesn't have the Spanish nationality
06:35:00 <KorbenC> Ah, ok.
06:35:20 <KorbenC> I think SC ie
06:36:47 <KorbenC> Jarno, you are the Split Cone guy, does that count as an eruption or is it just steamin gbecause its 36F and 88% RH
06:37:20 <JarnoO> steam was heavier earlier, so yes
06:37:52 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
06:49:01 <KorbenC> Morning Kat
06:49:55 <Kat> Morning Korben
06:50:33 <KorbenC> Riverside 0640
06:53:36 <KorbenC> 24hrs until I am on the non-pixelated side of this cam :D
06:53:53 <Kat> :)
06:54:54 <KorbenC> F&M needs to wait until 8d to do its thing.
06:55:23 <Kat> Parking lot full again - I think LE is ignoring cars in lots and pullouts at this point.
06:55:39 <KorbenC> people sleeping overnight you think?
06:56:20 <Kat> I do - there was a report on FB of cars filling pullouts throughout the park
06:56:34 <KorbenC> :thumbsdown: boo
06:57:21 <Kat> Many news reports of overcrowding and lack of accommodations!
06:57:49 <KorbenC> overcrowding, thats for certain
06:58:17 <Kat> Sad - and I think unfair to those who paid for their accomodations
06:58:25 <KorbenC> agreed
06:59:04 <Kat> I'm getting ready to make next years reservations
06:59:25 <Kat> Good morning Graham!
06:59:36 <KorbenC> Nice, I am there on the week of the 5th
06:59:58 <Kat> next year? Jume 5th?
07:00:03 <KorbenC> yes
07:00:07 <Kat> June*
07:00:13 <KorbenC> I am there the entire next week though, stalking Graham.
07:00:22 <KorbenC> I am there this entire next week*
07:01:02 <Kat> Yay! I enjoyed my time this year - while more crowded - not as bad as it has been after Memorial Day
07:01:28 <KorbenC> This year everyone is freaking out because they can finally go on vacation
07:01:54 <KorbenC> Hi JEFF
07:02:03 <Jeff> Hi korben
07:02:26 <Kat> Someone asked me yesterday didn't I want to go to another NP - answer NO! LOL
07:02:53 <KorbenC> lol
07:03:33 <Jeff> I've had plenty of guests ask me if I ever wanted to work in other parks and I was like wait there's other parks lol
07:03:55 <KorbenC> YNP is better than all other NP's combined, IMHO
07:04:00 <Kat> Funny - I agree!
07:04:02 <KorbenC> The first and the best
07:04:09 <Kat> :)
07:04:16 <MJ> I agree as well
07:04:16 <KorbenC> Flower
07:04:35 <Jeff> Plus to be honest I feel more at home here than I do in arizona
07:05:08 <Kat> Missed a Lion -Graham got it!
07:05:52 <Kat> Good morning Daisy!
07:06:21 <Kat> Jeff, you need a fulltime job in YNP
07:07:08 <Kat> Basin looks awesome this morning
07:07:28 <Jeff> Kat I've been considering moving to west just so I can stay around Yellowstone lol
07:07:41 <Kat> If I could - I would!
07:07:55 <KorbenC> Jarno, 0537 Lion was probably the ini based on itnerval right?
07:08:06 <Jeff> I haven't even looked outside yet lol went for a hike last night and my knee and ankle are killing me
07:08:13 <Kat> West is most likely where I would want to be too.
07:08:53 <Jeff> I just gotta look into housing out there
07:09:03 <KorbenC> I would be happy to mvoe to west
07:09:46 <Kat> Korben - college first! :)
07:10:02 <KorbenC> yup
07:10:08 <KorbenC> College, Job, West
07:10:19 <Kat> Yup!
07:10:26 <Jeff> Or college then get job in west
07:10:40 <KorbenC> true
07:10:55 <KorbenC> I still would like ot have a summer YNP job one of these years, while I am still in highschool
07:11:02 <Jeff> Or get job with NPS
07:13:08 <Kat> Anemones sure attract a lot of folks the last few days
07:13:34 <KorbenC> Are they doing the morning Geyser Hill ranger walks still?
07:13:53 <Kat> Might be - but not sure
07:16:15 <KorbenC> I think so, they are stopping at each of the "important" features
07:16:28 <Kat> They all stopped at Bee so I'm thinking Ranger walk!
07:18:45 <Linda> Morning all

08:47:19 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Morning Tom
08:48:10 <TomK> Good morning all. Getting set up. What's new & exciting?
08:49:07 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Not much - Aurum has not been seen for 7 days. Can you make it happen? :)
08:50:39 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Needs this:
08:52:04 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, LOL
08:52:20 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> It's Kevins fault!
08:53:24 <TomK> Been away or 3 weeks, can't get organized... Be ready in a minute (or 3)
08:53:39 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> No problem!
08:54:13 <TomK> Cuppa tay
08:54:47 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Gonna be HOT at the museum today. Not looking forward to the heat.
08:55:35 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Sorry - wish you would get some relief
08:56:31 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Keep getting a message that says media player was aborted - what is that?
08:56:49 <Betty> hi Kevvin and Tom
08:57:40 <Betty> got to get ready for the match, bbl, enjoy BH, Aurum etc
08:57:40 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi
08:57:41 <TomK> I need to be re-trained. got the picture, but can't do anything with it. isn't there some place to click to get control?
08:58:18 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Did you hit presets?
08:58:34 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Sometimes it takes a minute
08:59:18 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> I just hot down basin and its working
08:59:27 <TomK> All blurry, I think I did that
08:59:36 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> hit* now its on OF
09:00:05 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> dont hit the little disk icons
09:00:25 <TomK> OK, got it... I think
09:00:52 <TomK> Down basin waiting for Daisy
09:01:02 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Perfect!
09:01:39 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> I'll be around let me know if you need anything :)
09:02:31 <TomK> Been to YNP, Phoenix, San Diego & home to Bellingham in 3 weeks. 4,168 miles driving, but can't operate my computer.
09:05:13 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> :)
09:05:29 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Ity's like riding a bike - it all comes back! LOL
09:06:56 <TomK> Daisy
09:10:18 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> If I had a bike like this cam, I would walk!
09:10:35 <TomK> lol
09:12:36 <TomK> To back off, I hit [-], right? but it has a 2 second delay & only acks off a tiny bit. there's another way,,,
09:14:23 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> I agree Kevin
09:15:36 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Use the scroll button on the mouse.
09:19:30 <TomK> yeah, but... I had a way with better control
09:56:20 <TomK> Ouch. OF
10:30:23 <TomK> Is there a way to re-run the static cam & get an estimate of OF last start & end time? Can one of you experts do that? We have no prediction from the VC
10:33:30 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> I have it 0955 on static
10:34:07 <TomK> thanks, long?
10:35:09 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Appears to be
10:37:18 <TomK> Thanks, I see you updated Geyser Times, too. Maybe next time, I'll pay closer attention.
10:40:42 <TomK> So at 1054, I'll switch to down basin, hoping for Daisy, switch to OF at 1119, then back down basin waiting for Grand. Whew! It's hard to get back into the groove after 3 weeks.
10:46:44 <TomK> VC has OF prediction at 1103? They must think the last one was a short.
10:47:34 <TomK> I'll have to go with their prediction
10:48:53 <TomK> The public will be watching the cam by the VC prediction.
10:49:20 <TomK> No comments? Am I alone in my confusion today?
10:49:36 <TomK> ;)
10:51:00 <JarnoO> 0955 start on static, 0957 last water visible. Totals to 3 frames, or at least 3 minutes
10:53:58 <JarnoO> it would at least be a medium to long, which means an interval likely amounting to at least 1h15m-1h20m
10:57:30 <TomK> Thanks, JarnoO
11:07:30 <TomK> Just in case...
11:26:33 <TomK> Old faithful
11:35:41 <TomK> Good observations, Kat & JarnoO. The VC had it wrong.

17:34:10 <KorbenC (Dubois> Hi Linda

17:34:25 <Betty> we were at 97 today
17:34:46 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That is hot for you
17:35:00 <Betty> yes
17:37:25 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy dredging dirt for Aurum
17:38:09 <KorbenC (Dubois> JarnoO, bye
17:38:38 <L> JarnoO, night
17:38:56 <Betty> night Jarno
17:54:02 <L> Of
17:54:17 <Betty> try to get some sleep too, night all
17:55:07 <L> Betty, night
18:00:05 <come on rain> It would take a bit of rain to encourage Aurum
18:00:41 <come on rain> I was hoping cam viewing had improved.
18:00:45 <L> I miss aurum
18:01:18 <come on rain> Such a great view of it with this cam.
18:01:51 <L> Yeah its a shame ill put cam on it in a minute
18:02:33 <KorbenC (Dubois> Linda, I will pull Aurum out tommorow
18:02:36 <come on rain> it seemed focus was better when I looked at cam earlier
18:02:59 <come on rain> BH was not a pixelated mess today
18:04:54 <L> Wow no one there
18:05:08 <come on rain> no one where?
18:05:20 <come on rain> perfect, if only the cam was better...
18:05:30 <L> Indeed
18:05:42 <come on rain> I understand your view is good, as the op, is that correct?
18:06:06 <come on rain> some operator mentioned they could see clearly
18:06:22 <L> Yea its better but quite small
18:06:24 <come on rain> all I see is stop and go pixels, no definition
18:06:49 <come on rain> oh, as in size on your screen?
18:06:53 <L> I dont see all that
18:07:00 <come on rain> here comes people
18:07:19 <L> Pulling back trying to steady it
18:08:03 <come on rain> well this is the opposite of Aurum weather. Jarno could look back to snowier Junes.
18:08:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Rain?
18:09:03 <come on rain> It is really dry out there.
18:09:18 <come on rain> Snow would be better, yet rain will do
18:09:40 <L> Froze up
18:09:51 <L> The cam that is
18:12:37 <come on rain> well thanks for trying. This cam could have an amazing view of Aurum, I will rephrase my earlier post.
18:13:38 <L> Yeah rhe pixelating is a drag
18:17:57 <L> Churns been active last few days
18:20:43 <L> Hi korben
