"A timestamp is a sequence of characters, denoting the date and/or time at which a certain event occurred. A timestamp is the time at which an event is recorded by a computer, not the time of the event itself. In many cases, the difference may be inconsequential: the time at which an event is recorded by a timestamp (e.g., entered into a log file) should be very, very close to the time of the occurrence of the event recorded."

When was it I heard this song for the first time?In 2002 Casio came in Japan with the First Tough Solar Waveceptor model, the GW-300. Soon a new generation of these watches followed, like the MTG-920D, MTG-930D, GW-700, etc. Although there were many different models and versions, they all had the basically functions. One of the new functions on these models that appeared was the “Time Memo” function.
Some of my Tough Solar Waveceptor models that have the "Time Memo" function.Over the years, members on the G-Shock forum came with some ideas for the Time Memo Function. Freediver told once he used it to record the time he gave his children medication when they were seriously ill. There had to be a certain time span between the medications, to prevent medication poisoning. A good idea, but why not use the 24 hour Stopwatch, unless you want to record more than one “Timestamp”.
Studio Brussel. This radio station is known worldwide for it’s music. They often play music that can’t be heard anywhere else or months before other radio station pick up the music. Studio Brussel also have an on-line playlists. Using Shazam is not an option. The music is sometimes so new, it has not even distributed on any source yet. I think this is the only real good use I have seen for the Time Memo function (although, I still like Leewmeisters idea too) up to date. In fact, Mikeymoto’s post inspired me to make this small article. Do you think you have a good use for a “Timestamp? Well, share it with us by writing a comment on this article. Meanwhile, enjoy G!
