Whoa, yes, I've been getting a ton of them too, at least three a minute, 
all full requests to the home page, on hyperreal - more like 6 an hour on 
apache and vrml.  I haven't seen any on Organic hosts though.  Weird.  I 
do get requests from jericho machines calling itself "TinyWeb", 
performing a similar function.  Maybe our Microsoft employee on the list 
would like to enlighten us? :)
