I'm getting a bit confused about what date types to use in my applications 
and MySQL db.

I have used timestamps and I know how to format them, convert them and 
compare them etc but now I am about to build a calender type script and I'm 
not sure what to use. For example, if I insert a load of calender 
appointments into the table, how would I sleect all the events in a certain 
month (if the dates were timestamps) ? 

What are the advantages of timestamps over other date//time fileds and vice 

Thanks for any help,
