well first I'm the only icelander looking at this forum and posting then maybe I can answer some of your questions.. but many of what your are
talking about here has already been sayd.
Eyjafjallajökull is not when some one smashed their head on the keyboard. Really normal icelandic name
Eyja = island
fjalla = mountain's
jökull = glacier
And like I said before it's called Eyja because of the island Vestmanneyjar which you can see very clearly from the mountain. I posted my flickr page
here earlier to show you my pictures from when I went up there april 1st.
The reason why you can't see anything on the webcams are because weather here in Iceland is not good today, rainy and foggy.
No new eruption is going on and there is no sign of eruptions in Eyjafjallajökull are going down.

The only reason why it says Katla in the hraun.vedur.is link is because they were monitoring her not Eyjafjallajökull and they are so close together.
And if I translate the sentence here above it says that it is a tremor on monitors earthquake station NEAR
Eyjafjallajökull in the last three
I said yesterday that volcano experts talked about in the icelandic news that Katla shows no signs of waking up. If we look at the history she has
blown 1-2 years after Eyjafjallajökull stopped, the chance that it will happen at the same time is not that much. So stop looking at the link
"Katla" and think that she has a lot of tremors because it is just like I said, stations NEAR her but also very near eyjafjallajökull so there is
no surprise that the graph shows tremors.
GOD = station on Goðabunga
HVO = hvolsvelli
and the others I don't really know exactly where they are but the point is that it's not AT Katla, just in that area.
- really good video of the tremors from january 1st to april 14th when the glacier it self began erupting.
Well I hope I can answer any questions that are on your minds
