Thanks for the idea. I had just been approaching it from the idea of
trying to figure out what was going on with Apache. I installed, and
started Nginx, and sure enough, it started getting blown up with those
requests. Now, I guess I have to figure out why on earth those
requests would be coming to my humble home web server.
