Your console app won't accept input when running inside MonoDevelop because 
MonoDevelop's console doesn't accept input. (Or at least that has been my 
experience.) The solution is to run your program on an external console. There 
is a setting for this in MonoDevelop. Go to Project options -> Run -> General -> 
Run on external console.

Your message was not accepted by the mailing list so you will probably not
get many answers.  It is only visible on the forums and most people do not
use them.

Your question is pretty open ended.  If you are going to ask a question like
this, it is usually best to include some of your code so people can see what
is going on.

What happens when you instead run your application from the command-line?
