Topic - Mountain bike chain life?

How long do you expect your chain to last? (wet/mud/grit Peak conditions)

A certain geek of my acquaintance suggested I should have 3 chains on the go, rotating them every 200 miles, with an iphone app to remind me when to swap them over... and then replace all 3 chains + cassette at the same time once they stop working.

My first chain is already at 270 miles and the chain checker says it is at 0.75% wear, although to be fair I didn't try the chain checker when the chain was brand new, so I don't know how accurate it is.

How do you manage your bike chains? Thanks
