A photographer friend of mine picked me up for lunch friday and was laughing at me that i was making my assistant vacum out my larger Lowe Pro bags for dust. I admit before getting a D100, I didn't do this! As I integrated the D100's into my shooting style I realized that I couldn't "throw" them around or into my cases like my f100 or F5...you know what i mean. I'm even using body caps again! To date I haven't had to do a deep cleaning of the CCD. I was wondering what, if any steps you are taking with your camera bags, or shelf storage to keep the D100/D1 away from dust.

Vacuuming out camera bags? Yup, been there, done that.
When not in use my cameras live in anti-static bags. I also tend to be very careful with body and lens caps to make sure I'm not introducing any dust on those.
All this paranoia seems to work: I've typically needed to clean the D1 about every 6 months while the D100, at about 4 months old, is still respectable with one significant blob showing up at around f/11.
