Interesting. I too use date & time alot in my db. How do you use these fields? I have to analyse records using date and then again with time, so i made one column datetime - i assumed it would be better...
Eg: (readable code)
update sometable set somecolumn='weekend' if date(datetime) in (1,7)
update sometable set somecolumn='meeting' if time(datetime) between 0900 & 0930
Do you think this would be faster using two columns?
(i actually combined the two statements in one)
