Iterate over Custom UITableViews

UITableViews on the iPhone often contain a variable number of cells. The following code snippet should be helpful for those who need to iterate over a variable length table and subsequently read or set data model and cell state.
   //loop through cells in each section and make sure the data model is in sync 
   NSInteger numSections = [self numberOfSectionsInTableView:someTable];
   for (NSInteger s = 0; s < numSections; s++) { 
      NSLog(@"Section %d of %d", s, numSections); 
      NSInteger numRowsInSection = [self tableView:someTable numberOfRowsInSection:s]; 
      for (NSInteger r = 0; r < numRowsInSection; r++) {
         NSLog(@"Row %d of %d", r, numRowsInSection); 
         MyCell *cell = (MyCell *)[someTable cellForRowAtIndexPath: 
                                  [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:r inSection:s]]; 
         DataModelObject *theObject = (DataModelObject *)[fetchedResultsController objectAtIndexPath:
                                                         [NSIndexPath indexPathForRow:r inSection:s]]; 
         [theObject setValue:[NSNumber numberWithBool:MyCell.someProperty] forKey:@"someEntityKey"];
