Always make sure you drain it after you've finished using it everyday.

Besides draining the tank, turn the pressure regulator down to unload the spring inside of it. Also, occasionally check your air inlet filter.

Other than that, get a long hose and put it far away from where you are working so that it can annoy someone else.  [unsure]

Get some teflon tape to help reduce air escaping through the fittings.  If your shop is always the same temperature this might not be much of an issue, but metal expands or contracts so fittings might not be as snug from one season to the next.
