Thanks all. I found a previous reply on the class method fixtures in the
archives later too.  oops!

Hey Titus, do you think we could add an example of the class level
fixtures to your excellent tutorial at:

If the class example were added to the section on fixtures it would
likely nip some more questions in the bud. Thanks for the tutorial and
all the tools people!
