Raspberry PI - The Audio Engine - Part 9 - USB HUB Control

We're still on the way to collect this or that crumb that's been left on the table.
This exercise is for those who followed my advise to use an external network dongle. 
And for those who still enjoy playing around with our little gadget. 

Today we're looking at how to control our USB devices. 
As you probably already know the RPI Ethernet port is part of the PI USB infrastructure - The PI comes with a combined Ethernet-USB chip. IMO the weakest and most annoying part of the PI! 

A fellow programmer - Yutaka from Japan - has written a nice little tool to control USB-Hubs. 
It has been written in 2006 and - guess what - it still works.
