Actually I have seen the opposite, we used to get <3 a week, and I
have gotten atleast 5 in the last four hours.  30 - 50 over the
weekend.

I am seeing the opposite trend, maybe I got yours :).  But I thought
maybe there was another virus doing the rounds that used Nimda as a
payload or a "I will try to infect this machine with myself and
Nimda/Code Red".

I was figuring the latter because I am seeing a few successive
infection attempts, Klez, Yaha, and Nimda (or Code Red).  Could be
coincidence, but I raised an eyebrow.
