    As long as it's not iron filings based dust, then I just don't worry or bother about it.

    I think rather than an employee I am looking for a device. Or possibly a gadget.

    21st century folks, And we are still having to go round mopping up this stuff manually? That's not America. That's not even Mexico.

    We know where dust comes from. We know what it is and how it behaves. There must be a tech solution.

    There is only me living in my house but from the amount of dust and the sheer speed at which it builds up I must be shedding my bodyweight in skin every week. I dusted the turntable lid just two weeks ago, already got enough of a coating that it is almost opaque.

    Or anything "offensive", just dust.. yeah same here... So much stuff all over the place, wires here there and everywhere, extra test gear, hi fi gear that won't fit in cupboards... it's just not practicable to try and hoover more than once every few months... it never gets any worse after 3 years, according to Quentin Crisp anyway!

    I read recently that the "dead skin" theory was a urban myth.....most of your dead skin is trapped by clothing.......having said that, I have been known to ahem, "dance about " naked when the house is empty.......i'll leave you with that charming mental image!!!

    back on topic.....I have my gear in a ikea bench with a sliding glass door.
    I only open said door when the gear is powered up.....next to no dusting is thus required
