BIG One struck in the middle of the Island of Sumatra, I think that's the name of that island) and as of this writing Banda Aceh has not showed up on the list, there are some of about the same distance from the epicenter that would indicate it must have been felt in Banda Aceh. In fact Kuala Lumpur is equal distance and had more than one felt report from there which follows the list of nearby places also interesting there:

Very busy today with the ice storm striking the midwest and work tomorrow so right now I thought I'd post what I have here and in the event something major should shake, the blog will already be up to date and ready for what may come along during the remainder of the ice storm which looks like it'll be going on a couple days yet, and with work tomorrow, not sure when next EQ Blog entry will be. Keep Watching for those earthquakes! EQ Guy
