Help would be appreciated

Looks like you have a typo in your fixtures file. Is the column really
called "postion", or did you mean "position"?

BTW, fixtures are not good for most testing. Try Machinist or something
similar instead.

How embarrassing! Although 'postions' are not bad really. Thanks for the
tip on Machinist.
