My very first iOS app! A very ugly, but functional RPN calculator!

Objective-C has been a rather interesting experience. Now I've investigated Xcode at a bit of depth, it's actually a rather well polished IDE. It's a real shame though about the whole 'messages' vs 'calls' differences. If I send a message to a method that doesn't exist in C#, it throws an exception. In Objective-C, it just (silently) returns nil. Spent 2 hours debugging only to find out a property's getter was expecting a parameter (of itself, this syntax is so foreign to me that I missed it, derp).

TL;DR: If I do something dumb, I would like you to slap me across the face, point at the offending line of code, and tell me how stupid I am to write it. For the love of GOD, don't just ignore me instead! Don't be polite Objective-C, please, tell me when I'm being derp.[/geekrant]

Fantastic night, even if you aren't into rugby it was a tense and thrilling match! Auckland's going crazy, the atmosphere is unbelievable even out here in the suburbs. Will be good to see how NZ ticks on in the next few days over the result. Exciting!
