I did a poor job of formating this message.

Somebody else said this (Idon't remember who at the moment):

> Indeed. I've seen 1215 probes since the start of August, and a rough glance

> Better than 50% appear to be addresses without INADDR.

I said this:

I am sorry to have stolen somebody else's words--I did not mean to do that.
