I've had to endure these scans, myself, and I must say that they  
helped a lot. The scans are pretty thorough and they made me re-think  
some things I was doing... particularly limiting access to ports that  
I thought 'needed' to be open, but actually just needed to be open to  
a small number of outside addresses. Thank goodness for PF... would  
hate to try to pass one of those scans without a flexible firewall.
