in reply to MySQL Timestamp comparison

I think it is a very bad idea. Consider you are having more than one record inserts within a secundum. You cannot issue a unique key to your new records since it would be identical. You better use an auto_increment integer as primary key, and keep the timestamp for other reasons. The auto_increment column is strictly growing in time too, and does not take up as much disk space.

Hey wait, where is the perl question in this???
