Oil Consumption...

OK, I'm about to hit 5K miles and my oil level has not even flinched.
I swear I'm stepping on the go fast pedal but for some reason
I'm not consuming any oil-- or anything noticeable on the dip stick at least. I guess that's good...

Which leads me to two questions:

A) How often do you guys check your oil?
B) Is it safe to wait until the yellow idiot light warns you?

I know I always missed this light in my E36. But how realiable/dependable is it in the E46?
