Here is another of my ideas that might be of interest to somebody out there.
A year ago, I had the idea of saving 'thisyear.htm' as 'lastyear.htm' on New Year's Eve.
Last January, when I was actively learning HTML, I was then able to create a new 'thisyearT.htm' template that included the old values in brackets after the Cumulus web tags that would bring in the latest new values. It meant I was uploading a bigger file, but since I only ran Cumulus intermittently (and was more interested at that time in uploading photographs), that was not an issue. Subsequently, when I learnt more, I was able to check my dayfile.txt and Dec11log.txt to pick up any changes between when I created 'lastyear.htm' and the subsequent rollover. I also created a new web page and inserted a 'thisyear.htm' (reverting to just latest values) into an iframe on it, and revised the look of my pages away from the Cumulus standard. (I also abandoned uploading any web pages, and instead normally just store any I do generate on my PC's external drive but if I was updating, only the insert would need to be on the Cumulus process and ftf list, so reducing the size of the upload).
Apart from a few contributions to the forum and wiki, the rest of this year has seen me abandon web work and focus on outdoor pursuits (yes I know it has been England's wettest year since records began, but actually I experienced many dry periods, and the exercise is good for me).
I've got a cough reducing my desire to be outdoors and I've just revisited my locally stored annual page, downloaded the latest beta (Gosh Steve has produced a lot of builds since the summer when I tried out the beta http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=8123&start=11
and yet more new web tags), generated a new 'thisyear.htm' and copied across the current values to new columns of the table.

As you can perhaps see from the colour highlighting, it is the rain total (I see http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8909
is also comparing this between years) and chill hours that I'm expecting to edit on New Year's Day.
Oh and the plastic vent screen in the background has not survived this month's winds - another outdoor job to reattach/redesign that!
