Yep, the Airport Express has a USB port and the capability to share an external USB hard drive through the network. This will compromise performance a bit though - first because of USB (limited to a peak transfer rate of 480Mb/s) and secondly because you won't have the Gigabit ethernet speeds. In addition, you'll need to get an external enclosure for your drive.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
