Hi Howard,

Darn the dust. I have been lucky so far and only needed the air bulb.  
I only had to resort to the Eclipse and swabs once, 4 years ago on a  
D1X. Works like a champ. I still have one unopened bottle.

Enjoy retirement. I'm almost 3 years now. I find it just gives me  
more time to get into trouble. ;-) The fun kind.
