I'm creating a sports time record book and I'm wondering what is the best way to store time in database. The times I have look like that 1:45.00(1 minute 45 sec and 00/100) or 0:30.50(30sec+50/100). I know I could store it as text, but I would like it to be more robust as far as displaying and sorting goes.
DO you have any suggestions?
that still doesn't solve my problem because if I use decimal then I have convert everything to seconds or some other common denominator and that is going to be a pain. There has to better way to handle that. I would rather store fractions in other table then do some kind of conversions... How does that sounds?
