Good point about a blower - while I use the Giotto Rocket Air blower (it's a hand blower, they make several sizes and I think mine is the smallest- fits easily in my bag), I know someone who used a turkey baster for a long time, and really anything that can be used as a hand blower will work.

So, I've been thinking about getting 16GB Cards to replace the 2GB Cards since some of them seem to be coming down in price now.
Update. I've got one of these on the way now:

Transcend 16GB CompactFlash Card at newegg.com for $119.99

Transcend claims read speeds up to 45MB/Second and write speeds up to 21.5MB/Second and it's supports UDMA (Ultra DMA), which my latest camera can use. My newest camera (Sony DSLR-A700) is actually capable of around 27MB/Second to an Extreme IV from user tests I've seen. I'll have to test this Transcend to see how it compares. At only $119.99 for a 16GB card (which works out to about $7.50/GB), I can live with slightly slower write speeds. ;-)
