And use the correct datatypes. Store minutes as int or long for gods sake.

uint6...
uint8 will do in a pinch, but you're wasting two perfectly good bits of permanent memory
per record

1:07 PM
I've done a few of those sorts of things for heavy vehicles and equipment, approach I've always used is to record running hours that never resets then you just record the hours at each maintenance point to keep a good history of it all.

@PeterJ Yeah.. if you don't need the granularity of minutes... no harm in .75 or 1.5..

@PeterJ That was the point of my comment

@JanDvorak uint6? Didn't know mysql had a uint6.. huh..

Updating a database fielt to keep track of someting is a terrible, terrible idea
