Let me be the devil's layer here, Erik. In order to achieve the best portability and to gain the best performance you'd better use mySQL date field types to store the dates. If you need the PHP timestamps you can simply use another date function of mySQL (which was that?) on the SELECT and receive your data already in UNIX timestamp values. There's no way you can prove to me that PHP's timestamp is better in the mySQL's varchar(20) (20?? Why not 10 then and why not INT? Enough or the next 320 years or so... we just recently turned to 10m) instead of the simple timestamp(14).
