watching the spam roll in (and out)

Our system admin just called me over to tell me that the new blog server is choking up because something is trying to reach the old MT blog. What it looks like, from reading the blogs, is that what ever spam bot(s) was hitting us with thousands of comment spam is now trying very hard to reach the old installation – but alas, failing miserably. This is one type of failure that I quite enjoy watching!
