That's exactly where it should not be used :-)

The problems are many:

 - what date format to use?
 - with or without DST?
 - local time or GMT ?
 - what time resolution? 
 - How to represent microseconds?
 - how do you add a offset to it?
 - how do you compare two time strings?

Please use NTTIME (a 64 bit integer) or 'struct timeval' for all time

Cheers, Tridge
