Hello NeXT Community: https://www.scsi2sd.com/v5/releases/v5.2.0/

I've tested it it works with my custom XML Config :)

I've manually updated my custom NeXT XML Config but when I boot

the Browser for scsi utility is still the earlier version :(  which only supports 4 scsi devices.

I don't have Windows or linux which have  versions of the updated software scsi utility...

I'm hopig that someone will be able to make short work of compiling the source into MAC OS for the

latest SCSI Utility which I think supports up to 7 devices as it looks like my NeXT custom xml with

the version 5.2 firmware and matching 5.2 cards sees the additional partitions :) but it doesn't have a

way to mount them and this should simply be resolved by updating the scsi utility linked above to work

in MAC OS .

 Is it possible to use the Linux or Windows version (code) as a template  .

Please let me know how to do this as well as it is cool !  MAC OS version is much needed as the earlier

version does not unlock all of the functionality of the new firmware !

It also looks like everyone that I have sold the version 5.2 cards to would be able to flash upgrade

the 5.2 firware then with the new scsi utility interface gui copy my custom xml file to the scsi2sd device through the utility and presto up to 3 more

2 gb partions potentially  loaded with apps or projects . :)

I would then be able to update my master NeXT  iso to include a lot more NeXT stuff which I would be able to drop box to legacy sutemers cool stuff .   

Happy New Years !

PS I finally got Phizer vaxed , 1st shot and well it has kind of wiped me out the

last few days , not trying to make any waves but at least now I know ,

the side affects are like ptsd lol reliving COVID . 

Well with Antibodies from having had it and the VAX , I should be OK moving forward.

All I'm trying to do is live and not die from the damn virus or incarnation of it.

As people , family , friends and customers all around me have now caught the omnicronic or Delta it is worrisome .

Peace, love and hope you all and your family is and stays well.

Appreciate your time and help!

IMHO theory:

The VAX needs to be able to be dynamically upgraded to adapt as it seems like they hard code it to solve one static

version of the virus strain at a time.  Then booster a static solution out.

Sothe super vax would have a library of nano objects that are updated on the fly as

the vax evolves  through time by the data gathered and tested success.

Creating a smart hybrid immune system solution  to save humanity ,

I suppose with a smart watch app eventually it will be able to eventually give real time feedback and testing on

what ails us and then provide an optimized solutions to improve your help  , kind of like a health

genie , that optimises "tailors" medicine for you throuh ealth care integration  oh well back to the future ,

 10 + years from now perhaps , it will bcome reality ...  with an option to opt out lol

but I'm adding in Zombie proetection when it becomes available for sure lol

My first impression of the vax is the communication is often sugar coated like an

unsolved rubic's cube, multi sided and saying all is well as we solved it ,

 fortunately lots of brilliant people are on

it using the best available technology to come up with solutions to improve the vax and fill in the


Only Time will tell  ,

 I know NeXT's we're used and helped map out early version of the DNA

mapping and sequences by NIH as I helped revive a few of the NeXT systems running custom apps in use

at the research triangle by some very talented PHD's awhile back .    Looks like the NeXT projects helped make it a success.

Appreciate your time.

Best Regards Rob Blessin
