You know, if you store a record in a SQL database, it’s fairly easy to store the date and time, as sort of a timestamp, if you will. Perhaps you’d want to store the time a record was created, and maybe even the time it was modified…

These are all just suggestions of course. You don’t have to do any of these things.

But keep in mind this…

If you ever create an application that stores data where the date and/or time might be important in some way, and at some point someone else has to maintain the thing after you’re out of the picture, they just might curse your existence to the ends of the earth, and wish great bodily harm to come to you…

I’m just saying… Knowing when something happened might prove useful in the future. I think they even have a word for that, they call it ‘history’ I do believe…
