Numeric Data Type needs


#1

The numeric data type module in version 1.3.0 is an improvement but some features for handling timestamps are still needed.

Please add AM/PM support for input and output. That’s what most of us are used to.

Support for time zones and daylight saving time would be good also.

My more urgent need is for a way to search for “Date in interval” where the interval start and stop are calculated from “Now”. By “Now” I mean the date and time when the search is performed. In my case I want to search for events that start within the next, say, 60 days. As you might guess I am trying to implement a crude event calendar, just a list of upcoming public events. If anyone can tell me how to do this conveniently I’ll be a happy camper. The manual does not suggest this is possible. My needs might be met with a good calendar module. Is there one?
