I have recently purchased (for about £15) a USB hub which fits into the
redundant Drive B floppy bay on my machine.

This has a cable which passes out of the back of the machine and connects
into one of the existing USB ports and then provides 4 USB ports on the
front panel of the machine.

Sure beats scrabbling round the back each time you want to connect the
digital camera etc.!

I assume similar devices are available "across the pond".
