So I have this folder, called Time logs. Within it are the sub folders 2x2,3x3,4x4,and 5x5. All of which have sessions in the form of text files saved directly from cct with scrambles, times, SD, everything. Within 3x3 are 2 hand and OH, and within the 2 hand folder alone, there are...lets see...247 Averages, 99.99 percent of which are documented average of 12's with full info on each. Each is labeled in the format Session (number for that day)-(Month-Date-Year)-(xy.xy).txt. This folder has times all the way from...once again checking....my first sub 30 average on 10-16-08. For total individual solve count I'm estimating somewhere in the mid 3500's. It's pretty epic.

Now my predicament. Lately, I've been questioning if I should waste my time saving all of these? If I use cubetimer.com which I do like to use as its in the browser, I have to manually type my times over into CCT and save the average. That's just kinda a pain in the ass. Now the real question here is wtf can I do with this monster anyway? Is it worth it??? I've heard of graphing it which would be kind of cool...but i'd have to type out 247 averages. I don't think I'd want to do that, unless someone has a better way. It'd be helpful to upload it so you can see what I'm talking about, the averages are listed by date as names for text files.

I have no clue how to host it somewhere, which would be nice. Anyway any advice or even ideas on what the hell to do with this beast, is appreciated.

You shouldn't need to type out 247 avgs, just write a program to do it.

Anyhow, just copy all the files into a new folder and start over. And if you ever want them again, they're backed up. The file sizes are tiny, too.

yea, use regular expressions from python to extract all averages and print them all out one per line. Then you can dump that into excel and do whatever you want with it, such as graphing. Its about 5-10 lines of code

Gosh, every time someone posts in this thread and I read "What to do with my 3500 solve folder??" on the "New Posts" page, I can't help but think "Sell it on ebay".
