Dang, Alan... It's sickening but a good reminder on how fast these things can happen.
FWIW, I've been working diligently on dragging an air hose over near my TS, jointer and router table when I work on them, to blow away the dust and chips. When I get my permanent shop I'll pre-plumb the air and have a coiled air hose with nossle permanently mounted by each.
Is it overkill? Probably so. The upside is that it's significantly reduced the nuisance splinters and keeps the hands away from the knives.
Just my $0.02.. YMMV.
