Why don't you use a date format that your database supports? If i'm not
mistaken: timestamp, date, datetime...  With from_unix function you can
convert unix timestamps to mysql timestamps. And with date_format
function you can format the timestamp to whatever you like. And you get
some functions to calculatie differences between timestamps etc...
