yea, not sure why my Query isn't returning a value though? If I don't
use date(), what should I use?
the SQL for the timestamps looks like this.
`login_timestamp` datetime NOT NULL default '0000-00-00 00:00:00',
`submit_timestamp` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
sorry for the top-posting, but I think you have to in gmail.
