I saw something similar, although they visited me on May 13 and haven't 
been back.

My log excerpt is at <http://parrhesia.com/galaxy-scan.txt> so as not to 
clog up everyone's mail with boring log entries.

The first line was - - [13/May/2002:16:44:41 -0700] "GET /galaxy_176172.176518 
HTTP/1.0" 404 286 "-" "-"

and there were 57 entries total. The log entries are PDT (GMT -7:00) and 
the system clock is synchronized every few hours to USNO time.
