Converting Ticks to a Timestamp
I recently had to deal with a SQLite database that stored the timestamps as ticks. Having to first research what a tick is, I created a simple function that will convert a tick value to a timestamp or MySQL datetime value since I couldn’t find anyone else who had done such a thing yet.
You can download it here or view it below.
The only tricky part (aside from figuring out what a tick is) was calculating the number of ticks between 0001-01-01 to 1970-01-01. Also of note: a tick is apparently a popular way to store date/time values for Microsoft.
