i got soo pee'd off with having to download the blockchain 2gb of data on the standard client i thought id make my own client just for quick transactions and balance checking using (at this point) a fresh bitcoin.info wallet and the API's associated with it

http://i47.tinypic.com/2hwi3va.jpg

i was wondering if there was a better way to communicate with the bitcoin network as i dont want my wallet to become unreliable if blockchain.info went offline temporarily. i am well versed at VB.net which i used to make my client but have no clue where to get info about communicating with the network directly.

if anyone would kindly guide me in the right direction to any forums that involve client development it would be much appreciated.

You can use electrum's APIs as a backup.  Or you could just use electrum.
