You are definitely not going to get any argument from me on the inconsistency of time from multiple perspectives and / or histories. :)
My project comes from working with a credit card merchant (I have no voice in deciding which) requires a field in the HTML form generated from a Perl script that is based on "UTC time in ticks". I found (the best single page explanation I came across) that there are at least two generally accepted slices of the second (60 and 100) and I am being told to go with the 100.
The epoch date used by them is the 01/01/0001 00:00:00, not mine unfortunately.
I was not able to find much, so I guess epoch to "ticks" is either never converted or universally understood and I did not get the memo.
Thank you for your thoughtful response.
