Default D1X CCD chip cleaning

How often do I have to clean the D1X CCD chip? I should state here that I NEVER change lenses. I have been told to..." clean it before every shoot"...and also told "it's not necessary". What is the truth?

If you **NEVER** change lenses the likelyhood that youll need to perform cleaning on the CCD is remote at best. The D1X is sealed tighter then a frogs butt, if you dont open it you can probably go months before ever touching it (also a safe bet if your unsure of what/how to do it). If you change lenses often I still wouldnt personally clean it w/every use (aside from compressed air blast) unless you start to see artifacts in your images... just my worthless 2 cents
