So, I would like to know a way to store the current System time in milliseconds somehow for a long period. Putting the time in to a configuration file and updating it every millisecond is just ridiculous. I think a database would be the best way. What are your thoughts on this? And my second question is, how would I retrieve that time and convert it to a specific format without modifying the original time in the database (if I use it)? I actually don't really need milliseconds. If I can convert the milliseconds in to the format before I store it, I think that would be better. Either way, I don't think storing information to something and reloading it every time is not a good idea. Any suggestions?
