08:24:52 <JarnoO> OF 0822 static
08:25:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF ie static..
08:25:18 <JarnoO> previous one must've been short-medium or so
08:25:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Fish Dave is in the basin.
08:28:22 <Michelle> Good morning!
08:28:29 <JarnoO> morning Michelle
08:28:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
08:29:54 <Michelle> Just in time for OF.
08:33:58 <Katie (v2)> Morning, all
08:35:32 <JarnoO> morning Katie
08:37:18 <Michelle> Morning Katie
08:46:43 <Michelle> The controls are working about as good as the cam.
09:08:25 <Eric> Good Morning
09:09:27 <Eric> With all the kids in the park, the chat is pretty quiet lately :-P
09:09:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
09:09:53 <Katie (v2)> But GT is active. :)
09:09:54 <Eric> Hi Kevin
09:10:00 <Eric> Hi Katie
09:10:02 <Eric> Yes it is
09:10:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It takes us old folks a bit of time to type
09:11:16 <Eric> :-D
09:16:23 <Eric> What in the world is going on with the webcam lately?
09:16:35 <Eric> Need a router reset?
09:23:56 <JarnoO> Indy 0923
09:23:57 <JarnoO> .
09:23:57 <JarnoO> .
09:23:58 <JarnoO> .
09:23:58 <JarnoO> .
09:23:59 <JarnoO> .
09:26:16 <Eric> Nice
09:26:24 <Eric> Any text sent yet?
09:27:27 <Eric> I am going to send it now
09:28:08 <Mike J> Bee may have refused to show up during my visit. But, at least, I can see it herre.
09:28:10 <Mike J> here
09:28:23 <Eric> sent
09:28:56 <Mike J> Reminds me. I've got to get text notifications set up again.
09:29:04 <Mike J> Not sure how I lost them.
09:29:35 <Eric> I am not get txt from the alert system...I think Tmobile might be blocking them :-(
09:29:49 <Eric> Anyone get the txt yet?
09:30:21 <CC> yes
09:30:30 <visitor225> I got it Eric,
09:30:38 <SantaFe108> I got it
09:30:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> i did
09:30:49 <Mike J> Eric I've got T-Mobile. Mayhaps the problem
09:32:53 <Katie (v2)> I received it at 9:29 (Verizon)
09:32:57 <Eric> could be Mike, if you signed up for it before and aren't getting the txt messages
09:35:00 <Mike J> Eric do I just need to sign up again, or is it something worse?
09:35:50 <Eric> Hopefully graham makes the churn BH run :-D
09:36:42 <Mike J> Sounds like a fundraiser. "Join the Churn BH run to help cure over-geyser-gaziness"
09:36:49 <Michelle> Kevin or Katie, we are about to go into th OF window. Is there a way to get Beehive and OF in the same frame
09:36:58 <Katie (v2)> Mike J, pm me your phone number and I'll check if it's in there.
09:37:27 <Eric> BH will go before the window I think
09:37:43 <Mike J> Katie, done
09:37:49 <JarnoO> I'd opt for switching back and forth. When this cam first came on you could have Bee and OF in frame, but later that changed unfortunately
09:37:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Won't quite make it. :P
09:38:15 <Eric> Pump!
09:38:34 <Michelle> Yeah the old cam you used to get both.
09:40:11 <Eric> even with a 15m indy, that puts it at right now :-D
09:40:30 <Michelle> Going
09:40:35 <Eric> Nice!
09:40:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Bee
09:41:07 <Eric> Woohoo!
09:41:08 <JarnoO> :bee:
09:41:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pretty pixels.
09:42:09 <Eric> Yep, gotta love that minecraft compression :-D
09:43:05 <Eric> Interesting Forrest and Graham stayed in the sawmill group
09:44:43 <JarnoO> once again I've found out that my house's electrical wiring is useless since it got renovated 2003. Not only there are two breakers on the same outlets, the breakers apparantly fail their most basic task: to break electricity. A few minutes ago my computer did a weird "stop start stop start (eg screens flickering)" which I've had previously when there was a shortcut but not quite enough apparantly
09:44:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave is at Arrty
09:45:25 <Eric> Ohh, didn't realize Dave was even in the park :-P
09:45:28 <JarnoO> and there's not enough money to redo the wiring, which is fun.... hehe
09:46:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You could use the insurance money after the fire Jarno.
09:46:36 <Michelle> Love it when the geysers cooperate!
09:46:38 <JarnoO> true, but I'd rather not have fire at all
09:46:56 <Eric> That is not often Michelle!
09:47:18 <Eric> Thanks for holding...BH is over on our slow feeds :-D
09:47:36 <Eric> Ohh, you have probably already turned the camera :-P
09:47:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Two breakers on one circuit is a fire waiting to happen. And if they did that, what else did they botch up.
09:47:55 <Eric> Not sure how you even have 2 breakers on one circuit.
09:49:29 <JarnoO> me neither, but apparantly it's that way. Technically that circuit would have four: two for electricity, one which operates as ground (but also covers the living room) and one proper ground for the solar panels
09:50:11 <JarnoO> if either ground connection is broken, there's no electricity for the house at all
09:50:35 <JarnoO> I mean, it's """"safe"""", but that's quite excessive
09:52:30 <Eric> Well, thanks for the show...work time!
09:58:32 <Michelle> Kevin, are you good?
09:59:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. Just loading it up now.
09:59:53 <Michelle> Ok. Have a great day everyone. See you this afternoon!
10:00:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
10:00:50 <JarnoO> cya Michelle
11:57:24 <JarnoO> YAY! No playing against the 3rd best of the poule of death. No France, Portugal, Germany or Hungary to soccer against!
13:33:20 <JarnoO> fun. The scoreboard our broadcaster uses, can also show negative goals
13:35:13 <JarnoO> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E4l0PjHXoAIpsF5?format=jpg
13:57:00 <Linda> Grand
14:00:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Finally got the cam to move in time to miss Grand
14:01:32 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, 🙃
14:16:50 <Eric> Ok...so it's supposed to be 109 here on Sunday. I write return to "Kevin L" please, we did not order this heat!
14:19:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Send it to Phoenix. Nothing ever leaves Phoenix.
14:20:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BTW we haven't hit 100° today.
14:29:08 <Eric> Nice...glad you are getting a small break from this June heat.
14:29:23 <Eric> I don't remember it EVER being 109 here, let alone in June!
14:29:48 <Eric> That is SW US weather.
14:30:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This was the hottest streak I have ever had.
14:30:19 <Eric> Start saying goodbye to ALL lumber if this kind of weather continues.
14:30:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Fire season is going to be brutal for sure.
14:30:56 <Eric> MA made a not on FB that the North Entrance booths are starting to be demolished.
14:31:01 <Eric> a note
14:31:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could afford wood?
14:32:19 <kiawe (at work)> I was using all my scrap lumber to build a shed. Maybe prematurely.
14:32:38 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha, all!
14:33:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I figured that was what they were planning. Trying to rebuild a highway is like tearing down an apartment building and rebuilding it without moving any tenants out.
14:33:57 <kiawe (at work)> Wotta mess.
14:35:08 <kiawe (at work)> Is that the kafuffle I've been watching on one of the static webcams?
14:35:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Demolition work was one of my favorite things at NDOT. Amazing how quick a building comes down vs going up.
14:39:21 <kiawe (at work)> I'm grateful to see the webcam seems to be behaving itself right now.
14:40:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It did throw a temper tantrum during grand. I had to reload the control software to move it.
14:44:19 <kiawe (at work)> I'll stick around until OF goes, then got to earn my keep.
14:54:16 <kiawe (at work)> Alrighty then -- off I go. Aloha!
14:58:12 <Eric> Aloha
14:58:26 <Eric> What time was OF?
14:58:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I got it 1453 ie
15:02:49 <Betty> oh man
15:03:16 <Betty> afternoon all
15:03:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
15:04:03 <Betty> sorry for typing bad maybe - hard to write with shaking hands :-p
15:04:21 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
15:04:25 <Eric> Thanks Kevin
15:04:44 <Eric> You are shaking someones hand while typing?
15:04:48 <Eric> Hi Betty :-P
15:04:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> What did you do to your hands Betty?
15:05:03 <Betty> hi Eric
15:05:50 <Betty> nothing, but soccer game made my heart skip many beats
15:07:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My hockey game made me skip the final period. :p
15:07:51 <Betty> out of tournament - 2nd plce in group, out of tournament again -back on 2nd place in group again - game over - phew - 2nd place in group
15:13:06 <JarnoO> was a fun game between Portugal and France. Four goals, of which three came from penalties.
15:17:27 <JarnoO> We're on the 'good' side of the playing schedule. Next match against the Czech Republic, then what comes out of Wales vs. Denmark
15:18:49 <Betty> evening JarnoO, really? did not follow anything of that match
15:27:18 <Betty> just saw it, crazy
15:47:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lion burp
15:55:50 <Michelle> Good afternoon
15:55:58 <JarnoO> afternoon Michelle
15:56:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
15:56:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Do you need me to keep the cam for the next half hour?
15:56:41 <Betty> afternoon Michelle
15:56:52 <Michelle> Hi Kevin. Everything go ok?
15:57:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So far.
15:57:37 <Michelle> Good to hear!
15:57:41 <Betty> lion
15:57:46 <Betty> poof
15:58:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Another burp.
15:58:30 <3> hmmm, Lion is a poof?
15:58:48 <Betty> yep ;-)
15:58:59 <Betty> LC ie
16:00:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And another burp
16:03:56 <Michelle> That's all he has, a belch and 2 burps
16:04:48 <Betty> :-D
16:09:28 <Michelle> Couldn't get the dang mouse to work. It's working now!
16:31:16 <Betty> daisy
16:40:09 <Betty> time to head out, night all
16:40:43 <Michelle> Night Betty. Have a good one!
16:41:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
17:49:25 <JarnoO> nice, splash from Sawmill @ 1616
17:51:01 <Mario> Graham posted that Sawmill had splashed on Facebook, to lots of yelling and screaming. I'm so excited for this group to wake up before I get there next month!
17:57:25 <Michelle> So this is my first evening shift, is it always this bad? Even the controls are wonky.
17:59:21 <JarnoO> cam's been very bad since yesterday
18:00:01 <JarnoO> evening Korben. Congrats with the Sawmill splash
18:00:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is the same anytime
18:53:28 <linda> howdy
18:53:34 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
18:54:07 <linda> uhoh i have the circle and X of death, that's serious
18:54:14 <linda> SantaFe108, hi
18:55:01 <Michelle> My screen is frozen and I have a black screen on chat.
18:56:41 <Michelle> I hit refresh, that helped!
18:57:38 <Michelle> Nope, only for a minute.
19:03:20 <Michelle> Got it to move.
19:04:55 <linda> oh i see the basin
19:06:38 <Michelle> It comes and goes. Mostly goes.
19:07:02 <linda> :)
19:07:12 <linda> Monday night it was a beast
19:07:31 <linda> It got mad and docked itself up in the dome
19:07:40 <Michelle> Good beast or bad beast?
19:07:59 <linda> bad beast
19:08:02 <Michelle> Earlier it was good too.
19:08:08 <kiawe (at work)> It was a naughty spawn!
19:08:29 <kiawe (at work)> Last I saw, it looked like it was drizzling.
19:09:05 <kiawe (at work)> "I'm tryin' to think, but nuthin's happening!"
19:09:28 <kiawe (at work)> Static picture.
19:11:14 <Michelle> Going again. For a minute at least. Going to not move it until OF
19:12:00 <linda> what are the numbers on the cpu?
19:12:53 <Michelle> 37%
19:17:23 <3> Riverside
19:17:31 <kiawe (at work)> *wants to climb up and thump it with a stick*
19:18:07 <Michelle> A big stick!
19:19:37 <Michelle> Better!
19:20:56 <kiawe (at work)> Windy and overcast here on Maui. No drizzle, though.
19:26:54 <Michelle> Just steam from Artemesia?
19:28:26 <kiawe (at work)> I thi-i-ink so.
19:28:43 <kiawe (at work)> It could be a polar bear ans till look like a big white blob.
19:30:12 <kiawe (at work)> Diehards on the boardwalk in the rain.
19:31:51 <kiawe (at work)> Infrequent moments of clarity.
19:39:08 <kiawe (at work)> I will go and leave you to it. Aloha!
19:40:23 <Michelle> Have a great evening there?
20:04:51 <Kevin iPad> I think a big stick is what killed the other one.
20:17:11 <Michelle> A big stick or a little squirrel?
20:20:30 <Kevin iPad> One of the flagpoles.
20:21:05 <Michelle> :)
20:21:30 <Kevin iPad> Basically a telephone pole.
20:24:02 <Michelle> Just wondering, as it gets darker, am i going to have to start zooming out?
20:25:57 <Kevin iPad> Probably so. It will get slower a pixelate even worse. I really don’t zoom in much even during the day.
20:26:54 <Michelle> Good to know and thank ou!
20:30:23 <Kevin iPad> Until they get more bandwidth this is what we are stuck with.
20:32:36 <Michelle> When it's clear, it is a beautiful. Just very few clear moments!
20:33:10 <Kevin iPad> Yes. All it would tal
20:33:39 <Kevin iPad> Take is a half inch black overhead fiber line.
20:34:47 <Kevin iPad> 99.99% of the people wouldn’t even notice it since it could be hung on existing poles.
20:35:05 <Michelle> And 1000 pages of paperwork!:)
20:36:24 <Kevin iPad> Yep. Done by the people who bring you the dmv and mediscare
20:36:49 <Michelle> Yay!
20:37:49 <Kevin iPad> Beautiful start
20:46:10 <Michelle> Perfect!
20:46:44 <Michelle> Except for the pixellation!
20:47:59 <Michelle> Should have moved it a tad earlier!
20:48:49 <Michelle> Wait for it
20:50:06 <Michelle> Darn, not nearly as pretty on this screen as it is on mine. Just wow!
20:51:02 <Kevin iPad> It would be nice with a cam that worked
20:53:07 <Michelle> Yes. This is the first time I have seen it in the evening from this perspective. Just wow on my screen!
20:54:13 <Michelle> If I could just get up there with a broom and get rid of the spider web!
20:59:23 <SantaFe108> is that penta steam to left of spaz?
20:59:24 <Kevin iPad> That would be nice
20:59:35 <SantaFe108> it's closer to the cam than grand's platform
21:01:37 <Michelle> I hate to leave thus view, but...
21:02:05 <linda> oh wow, nice
21:03:19 <SantaFe108> if that really was penta then it'll be there when OF is done
21:03:39 <SantaFe108> i wish the cam wasn't down when penta went the first time, so we have a reference of what to look for
21:08:21 <Michelle> Back to what it was doing earlier, but worse!
21:10:01 <SantaFe108> :(
21:14:27 <kcmule> game 7 friday I can deal w that
21:14:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey SantaFe, Here is a rare beast. https://www.railpictures.net/photo/775133/
21:15:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I want one on Saturday kc
21:15:41 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, Woah that is not something you see very often
21:16:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I didn't even realize Santa Fe had E6 units.
21:16:23 <SantaFe108> I thought they just used F units
21:16:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Me too along with the PA and PB Alcos.
21:17:01 <Michelle> About to freeze again.
21:18:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Train hit a car at Flagstaff.
21:19:07 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, Wow
21:19:10 <SantaFe108> i wonder how it happened
21:19:55 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, I guess that's better than hitting a person, maybe
21:22:37 <SantaFe108> emergency brakes on the flagstaff cam around 1934
21:23:53 <SantaFe108> I wonder how bad this will delay the chief
21:24:34 <SantaFe108> 19:34:20 is the exact second you can hear the air dumped
21:26:14 <Michelle> Kevin, what do you see on your screen?
21:26:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Other than the train wreck I have a spinning circle on this site.
21:27:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We put 7 rail explorer cars on the ground this weekend SantaFe.
21:28:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is moving now Michelle
21:30:18 <Michelle> Going to leave it right there and call it a night. We will see everyone in the morning!
21:30:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Flagstaff train moving
21:30:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
21:30:42 <SantaFe108> Night
21:31:01 <SantaFe108> it would be interesting to have rail explorers down here, but we don't have enough track length
21:31:56 <Michelle> Have a great night!
21:32:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How long is your track?
21:35:30 <SantaFe108> our Mainline is only a measly 1.5 miles long
21:37:09 <SantaFe108> but we have plans for an around 1600 ft extension to the Metrolink commuter railway station in downtown Perris
21:38:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have 4 1/2 miles.
21:38:58 <SantaFe108> Lucky haha
21:40:41 <SantaFe108> although when the museum was founded there wasn't anything here so it's all from scratch
21:40:47 <SantaFe108> just an 8 acre potato farm
21:42:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They did have a good race track
21:45:40 <SantaFe108> would be cool if we could have more 3'6" track
21:45:46 <SantaFe108> some more stretching room for the yellow cars
21:47:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have a little bit of 3' gauge so the Eureka can run a bit.
21:47:42 <SantaFe108> was about to mention, what we REALLY need is 3' track for Emma Nevada and Chloe
21:48:08 <SantaFe108> which is why we are (hopefully) going to demolish one of our old standard gauge yards soon, and rebuild it by barn 7 in the back
21:48:15 <SantaFe108> then we can lay more 3'
21:50:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Some of the 3' rail is from the 1800's
21:52:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Chief even made up time from Gallup to Winslow. Bet it loses it going to Flgstaff.
21:53:59 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, atleast the flagstaff station is clear
21:54:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> EB coming
21:55:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I mean WB
21:59:18 <SantaFe108> Tardy's getting a nighttime light show
22:00:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I miss night gazing
22:01:45 <SantaFe108> Never had enough time to do it before
22:02:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nothing like it. Grand under a full moon is incredible. BH and Castle are special too.
22:02:52 <SantaFe108> im guessing that the noise of water bubbling and steam jetting and such is amplified with the lack of visibility too
22:02:58 <SantaFe108> Sounds very atmospheric
22:03:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You get really good sound. We had a bunch of gazers at BH at 0200 and someone called LE telling them there was a wild drunken party on GH.
22:04:37 <SantaFe108> Hahaha I can see that
22:04:45 <SantaFe108> BH can get people hootin and hollaring really loudly
22:06:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We had the Strassers, HK, Herb Warren, John Muller, and T Scott Bryan among others. LE thought it was funny when they found out who we were (T Scott was a ranger then).
22:06:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And LE got the eruption! Great moonbows.
22:07:22 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, Lol
22:07:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One of my favorite memories.
22:07:44 <SantaFe108> I wonder if anyone recorded the first Tardy of this new active period
22:08:04 <SantaFe108> the observers and comment of Korben's entry was clearly written with alot of excitement and panic
22:08:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know Korben and some others were out there.
22:08:21 <SantaFe108> I bet they were jumping with joy to see it
22:08:28 <SantaFe108> Especially since it dueled with OT
22:08:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They have been really lucky this trip.
22:09:28 <SantaFe108> Extreme luck
22:10:11 <SantaFe108> I don't think any of them had "Sawmill group reactivates" on their trip itinerary
22:10:59 <SantaFe108> Looks like some of them are heading to GH
22:13:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably a good move. Not much due.
22:14:20 <SantaFe108> Yeah
22:15:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like #4 Chief is due in Barstow the same time #3 Chief is due in Flagstaff.
22:15:41 <SantaFe108> Hm
