Hi Steve,

first, thank you for sharing your code. I've got it installed on our 
test server and the server is now able to start without any errors. The 
new shipping method also shows up along with all the others in 
Administration=>Commerce=>Shipping. However, I don't seem to be able to 
make this new method come up as the default shipping mode. Any suggestions?
