Arsehole Talking Convention Is Redundant

If you want to make Mono Visual Basic work on Hardy Heron, add the following repository:

deb http://directhex.mfgames.com/ hardy main

The GPG keyfile is inadequately documented, so if you click the link you get a display of the actual code, but no fucking file.

Wild goose chase; the lack of the silly file just means that your luvverly Mono stuff is 'Unauthenticated'.

It still loads and works just fine.

For VB go to synaptic, install anything found under 'vbnc' search string, and run your Monodevelop. The VB sample application will now actually build and RUN!

Yes folks! You can now do actual VB on Linux!

By the way, if you Google this subject, you will find at least a half dozen websites whose 'authors' have cut and pasted the Badgerport instructions into their page and then presented it as revealed truth.
Pathetic nonentities. I wish people like that would just fuck off and stop giving professionals a bad name.
