Yesterday (22-August-2017) a minor earthquake swarm took place not far from Geirfulgasker island on the Reykjanes ridge (no GVP profile). This was a minor earthquake swarm as it was detected by Icelandic Met Office SIL network. There is a chance that more earthquakes happened then where detected. Largest earthquakes in this swarm had the magnitude of 2,4 and other earthquakes that happened where smaller in magnitude.
This earthquake swarm looks like it was mostly due to tectonic movements in this area. It is difficult to know for sure if a magma was at work here due to unclear earthquake signal. It can’t be ruled out. I don’t know when this area last erupted. I think it was sometimes in the time period between 13th and 15th century.

Amazon US/Canada changes
Due to changes in Iceland bank system it is possible that I won’t be able to use Amazon US and Amazon Canada for a while. The change is that my Icelandic bank is going to stop processing checks from 1-January-2018 (along with stop issuing them). I can keep using Amazon US and Amazon Canada advertisements until October (paid by November). I have contacted Amazon US and Canada about this and the word is that Amazon US is working on this. It doesn’t seems to be the case with Amazon Canada but I don’t get much income on it anyway.
What this means at once this change takes place I will go back to getting paid only when people buy something from Amazon UK/DE/ES since with those accounts I use direct bank deposit. This means a drop in income for me since the Amazon CPM advertisement pay considerable more than the advertisement that only pay once people buy something with the Amazon UK/DE/ES banners. I just have to hope that Amazon Europe adds CPM advertisements to Amazon UK/DE/ES so I can switch to it completely. I will start switching advertisement to Amazon UK/DE/ES by November if Amazon US has not resolved the issue by then. It is going to take me few days in November to move everything advertisement from CPM to regular advertisements that only pay when something is bought trough the banners.
