Take a pic. The shutter count is stored in the EXIF information.

The K10D shutter, like on most Pentax DSLRs, is rated for 100,000 actuations. That doesn't mean it'll keel over dead at 100,000 pictures, just that an average unit is expected to last that long. It could last much longer.

Oh yeah, and welcome back.

I use Opanda IExif, which is free to download. You have to look quite hard for the shutter activation number, but it's there.

I tried that with my K-30 and I can see "shutter speed", but I don't see shutter count. Does it have a different name, or does the K-30 not include shutter count in exif?

Maybe you're not looking in the right spot? It'll be right at the top of the page. Also, make sure you're using a picture straight out of the camera, unedited by any program. Sometimes the data gets lost when you put the pictures through any kind of image processing software. Here's what the results look like from my camera:

Ah, that was it. Thanks. The count was "2". So now I know.

(This was my earliest photo with a new camera. And now I'm curious as to whether this includes the photo that the EXIF is attached to. Was it tested once in the factory, or twice?)

Really? Where? Even knowing what the value should be, I can't spot it. Nor can I see it with Kuso or PhotoME. (I'd rather not have to upload pictures to check it.)

PhotoMe will only see jpgs and it can't be a RAW file processed as a jpg. What i do because I shoot RAW, I take the time to set the camera to jpeg then take one photo, after I view shutter count in PhotoMe, I rest my camera back to RAW.

In Opanda the shutter count is near the bottom of the pretty comprehensive list. At first, I thought it wasn't there, either.
