It just so happens that I am one of the forum moderators (along with AlanC). But, as you suggested, I contacted myself...got aggravated, and locked this thread for a few minutes. Then, I thought better of it and unlocked it. If this thing explodes, it'll be locked again.
Emotions can run high quickly in matters of religion, politics, and Canon vs. Nikon questions. Threads of this type often disintegrate into arguments. A few of the answers above were already heading that way.
I do not want to be unreasonable, but this is NOT the place for this discussion! A good place would Photo.net, Photosig.com, or FredWhatsHisName.com, all general photography sites. This is a Nikon site. This D100/D1 forum needs to remain pure. Most of us do not care to come here and read about garage sale notices, Dell computers, McAfee virus scanners, or Canon cameras. We want to read about Nikons, and specifically issues concerning the use of D1 and D100 cameras.
