stealth, these methods maybe of some use to you...

1) the damp cloth technique:

take a dry cloth and place it to one side for a moment, then, give your xbox a liberal dousing with water...a pressure hose works wonders! mindful of those delicate electronics though!...last part is easy, simply use the dry cloth to dry your xbox thus making the cloth damp, hence...the damp cloth technique!

2) the forced air technique:

unplug all cables from tv, and power supply but leave them connected to the xbox.. (this step is not necessary for the damp cloth technique), with the xbox at one end of the cables, and your good self at the other end grasping the cables firmly in one hand...swing the xbox around you head as fast as you can!...air will be forced into and around all areas of the box making it nice and clean!, hence...the forced air technique!

now, i would have thought that a U83r H4x0r like yourself would be fully aware of these methods!...and yes!, i am fully aware of the shut the fuk up technique!...hence, i'll get me coat ;-)

i guess rather than swinging it around your head, you could just buy a can of compressed air and clean it out that way!!
