I just spent the past two hours trying to get my iPod game to pause when the user quits via Multitasking, or by the lock button, or whatever.
Trying to pass a variable (a single little integer) from one part of the program (AppDelegate) to another (ViewController) is probably one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do!

Good God, why do they have to make things so damn difficult!?

I mean, seriously, can't we go back to...
10 Print "Hello"
20 Goto 10
Used to work fine for me!?!!

Stupid new age languages..

It works now, and I'm pretty sure it'll do most cases.
I'm not 100% sure what happens when the user gets a phone call, since.. um.. Can't find that option in the Simulator. I can get it to show a status bar, but not go "YOU GETS AN PHONE CALL!!!!!", so.. um.. thanks for THAT, Apple! tsk..

Tomorrow, back to Windows : Microbe2 (Youtube Trailer!)
