I need to create a "commands" table. A program will periodically check on this table
there's a pending command for it to execute or not. Whatever the reason, this program
might read a command but not acknowledge it's
Other program will check out whether the command timeout has expired or not and so act
I guess I can use some sort of integer in order to represent it as a unix timestamp, but
I would prefer to use a "timestamp".

If you want to store date/time values, do not use the TIMESTAMP
What is it that you're trying to do?
