As can be seen I have added the subscription button from Paypal again to this site. The reason is that some people might not want to register on skrill.com to send me donation, the subscription button is also for people who want to support me every month. This means that I am not going to remove Paypal completely. However I cannot use the donation button as it’s not meant for websites like mine, as Paypal explains here clearly. So if you want to support me, you have to send me donation manually with Paypal to my email address at email@example.com (it’s spam protected from clear view). Currently I am not ready to use my account at skrill.com, but that is going to be a preferred way to send me donations in the future or by sending them via bank over SWIFT bank system
Support is welcomed this month since I am rather too broke this month and I am not going to see a lot of improvement (ISK is now at 22,77 ISK = 1 DKK at Visa exchange rate in Iceland or €1 = 169,23 ISK) any time soon. So far this month has been rather bad when it comes to money for me. November is also going to be like this I expect and maybe January-2014 too. After that I am not sure how my status is going to be.
Update 1: I am going to add the new bank account to the support website tomorrow.
Thanks for the support.

Today at 01:11 UTC (13-October-2013) an earthquake swarm started on the Reykjanes peninsula. Early in this earthquake it was just minor earthquakes until 07:34 UTC an earthquake with magnitude 4,8 took place on the Reykjanes peninsula. Before the strongest earthquake took place, an magnitude 3,4 and 3,5 took place. Several earthquakes with magnitude above 3,0 took place following the main earthquake. The strongest earthquake was felt over an wide area, from Vík í Mýrdal to Hólmavík in north-west Iceland. Far as I know no damage did take place following this earthquake.

This earthquake did appear clearly on all of my geophone stations in Iceland. They can be viewed here.
The magnitude 4,8 earthquake on the Eyrarbakki geophone station. The earthquake signal is strongest on this geophone station and clearly tops the sensor it self, it can be seen how the signal goes above the maximum line on the geophone image.

It is impossible to know for sure if this earthquake swarm is going to increase again. For the past few hours activity has been dropping, there is however nothing that says activity is not going to increase again. Such activity is common in this area, but it’s impossible to know for sure what happens next. At the moment there is nothing to suggest that volcano activity is the source of this activity. That might change but I think it is unlikely to be the case at the moment, regardless of what the future has in store.
