Thanks for the heads up.  Lots of interesting traffic observation papers 
regarding DNS at measurement-factory.com - worth a look.  Not to mention, 
it is nice that somebody actually took the time to explain what they are up 
to.  These days, unfortunately, when we see odd traffic and request 
patterns, it is usually bad news.
