You do know that is impossible,

Why do you say that?

I wish I could go make java client that would have all my features,

Yeah, replicating the current code exactly in another language like java would not be easy.

but I want a full node. Right now that is impossible to have a full node that is a 100% aligned with the bitcoin-qt

No it isn't.  You just have to use the current codebase.  Then you can add features to that code however you like.


and there no documentation so it even harder.

If documentation is what you want, then create it.

So I am locked into this fork.

Only because you choose to be.

And rather than creating your own documentation, you choose to accept their statements as an excuse to complain.  Regardless, there is nothing preventing you from copying the current codebase and creating your own fork.

I have tried to create my own fork in java, and it didn't go so well, it is too much trial and error. Also i don't know C++ and python as good as they do so copying the current codebase is not an option. Believe me I have done a lot more then just complain I explore so many ways to make the full node more my own and it can only work to a certain part. I think complaining is allowed in this situation.

Agreed.  It is likely to be very difficult to re-implement bitcoin in another language right now.

Also i don't know C++ and python as good as they do so copying the current codebase is not an option.

Sounds like a great educational opportunity to me.

Certainly, you are allowed to do as much complaining as you like.  Just like I get to complain about your complaining.  Wink

Skip the PHP and the Java trading bot.  Just stick with the C++.

From what I hear you can earn a living programming a bitcoin client in C++.

Do that, and I just might joint your organization as a developer.  Grin

Supporting the foundation is supporting Bitcoin

I'm a lifetime member. I joined to support Gavin's work and to ensure that he gets paid.

The business interests on the board - Mark Karpeles, Charlie Shrem and Peter Vessenes - need to leave the board.

I just read this interesting post about how Bitcoin being decentralised has these centralised weaknesses:
http://bitcoininsight.com/2013/04/08/bitcoins-emerging-weaknesses/

One thing I keep reading about, and seeing is this, 'Bitcoin Foundation'.

Everytime I see / read 'Bitcoin Foundation', I want to stab my own eyes out. Literally, I hate authority, and the idea of having this one over ruling 'Bitcoun Foundation', with 'Board Members', just makes me want to puke.


Anyone else feel the same way.. . please contribute.
If you like the idea of a monopolistic elite at the top, please add your comments also.
By bitcoin anybody who wants to feel himself important can do it and give himself a cool name.
You can also make with your friends an organization with cool name and call yourself:
Bitcoin President.
Who can stop you to call yourself Bitcoin President and the others to call themselves Bitcoin Foundation board member ?
