Does anyone have a coldfusion script to convert a normal date/time ie: now() into a unix timestamp.

Many Thanks

Do you have any ideas on getting the time stamp in milliseconds?

Coldfusion doesn't have any functions that determine time stamps with that degree of accuracy, so your best bet would be to ballpark the value by multiplying your timestamp by 1000.
