Any tips for a new 1DMK4 user, besides get rid of it?

Dear Board,

Today my new to me 1DMK4 arrived, and I like it a lot. Yes, it's old and outdated, and yes Canon no longer repairs it. But that never bothered me in my progression from the 1DMK2 to the 1DMk3 so I won't let it bother me now! I never buy anything before it has 10 years of usage.

The camera seems very familiar given I traded a 1DMK3 for it, but I am sure there are some differences and other things I should know.

So I'm asking if anyone cares to share anything with me? I also have a Canon 7D and a modest stable of lenses, the emphasis on modest. I shoot birds and wildlife mostly, and would welcome any tips.

And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man.
