I will add later option to manual upload data by clicking option in Tray Menu. But application must stay in tray, becouse it must get WoW path anyway.

The thing is that it checks if changes are made in Carbonite.Quests.lua and only uploads it if there is something to upload. WoW must be stopped becouse only then SavedVariables are saved and file isnt used. App is light (cpu and memory) and u dont have to remember to make manual upload each time. Also it gzips data so its less data to transfer (as its text compressed so the uploaded file is very, very small).

The point was to make it simple and as transparent as it can be. For other users which dont want to use .exe uploader or cant (Linux or other systems) there is manual upload here: http://atk.github.io/Carbonite/.
