I hope to be on my feet after a few more basic questions..

Deciding on factory_girl due to it's popularity, I wrote a factories 

== spec/factories.rb

# This will guess the User class
Factory.define :user do |u|
  u.login 'John'
  u.password 'foobar'
  u.password_confirmation  'foobar'
  u.email  'john at pandawin.com'
  u.pref_charity_one_id  1
  u.pref_charity_two_id  2
  u.pref_charity_three_id  3
  u.credits  0
  u.register! # do these work?
  u.activate! #

== but the test still gets 'quentin' from the bort fixtures for user 1
require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../spec_helper'
require 'factory_girl' # don't know if this works

Do I need to require the file like the spec_helper for factory_girl?

For instance, will you write a simple case that puts the factory user id 
and login?  I think that would help a lot.

Also, your patience is appreciated.  I may have a New years resolution 
knocked out before the year starts :-)
