    Isn’t there a forum rule that a member cannot make more comments on a thread started by the member than all other comments posted by other members in the thread?

    Closer to home, Mt. Driscoll is spewing steam and molten gumbo. The natives are bringing hot dog weenies, buns and RC Cola.

    Bang Agung. Get it on. Bang Agung

    Several scientists remarked that Agung's recent behaviour matches the buildup to the devastating 1963 blast that left 1,600 people dead and ejected enough debris -- about a billion metric tonnes -- to lower global average temperatures a notch (0.2 - 0.3 degrees Celsius) for about a year.

    "Based on what we saw in 1963, the present activity is quite similar to the start of that eruption," said Pyle.

    "The probability of a large eruption is high, but this may take some days or weeks to unfold."

    David Rothery, a professor at The Open University in Britain, also sees a step-change on the horizon.

    "The volcano might at last be delivering the large eruption that has been feared for several weeks," he said.

    It's Driskill, like Omar.

    For volcanoes, I always use the Polynesian spelling. For instance, Mt. Agung is Polynesian for the English name "Mt. Jindal-Engstfeld"

    Sadly, this volcano has erupted to late in the season to make much difference for us now. Could go on for a year though and wait until next winter's weather.
