<nods> As Clifto said when I posted about this in 
news.admin.net-abuse.email, `Raise the drawbridge and man the turrets.'
I find that I rarely get a full portscan, but I often have 
people taking a few stabs at ports 23(telnet) and 53(bind).
There also are a lot of connection attempts to random file-sharing
type ports, presumably due to the fact that I'm on a dynamic
IP address setup.
