Re: Spiny Norman

Maybe rjackson can get in contact with Sco Bro who seems to have done it (made a comment on Spiny Norman, at least). But I think they're one in the same. Maybe a slight update to the description for Spiny Norman is in order as well to decrease confusion for the next victim(s). Dustin - I think Mr. c...
