When I had sid working I was doing some programming with mono-vbnc and 
found out something that likely will be useful for others if they take 
this path.  On in the tutorial, avoid all 
g.u.i. stuff since when you put it in a console-based program to run with 
vbnc, it's going to throw an exception and not return any useful 
information.  Stick to Console.WriteLine and Console.Read and 
Console.ReadLine for input/output and all will work fine so long as you 
remember to use a Try exception catching loop around any of those read
