It's not possible to do something like that from within an addon. LUA runs within a sandbox that really only has access to the things that Blizzard exposes. We're not able to read/write to files on the computer, send/receive email, etc. And for good reason, if an addon could do things like this it would be possible to write malicious addons.

We have already received a lot of data from users and we expect to have the database back better than ever very soon.
