Need More Power!

While things have gone well with running debian on my slug i’ve reached the point of it’s hardware capabilities. The issue has come to ahead today when i’ve been playing with webcams. The slug has 2xusb ports so I have the HDD in one and webcam on another however if I try to add another camera via a usb hub I hit the bandwidth limit of the slugs onboard usb port and thus will never be able to run more than one. This is quite a MAJOR snag for me especially as i’ve spent a lot of today comiling the drivers for my different cam’s and got all but one working. Once i’ve done various little projects I reckon I would have about 4 cams running so it seems I may have to look into the ‘Shuttle’ option to give me the extra ooomph I need.
