Getting 'fractional' seconds in date time for some reason... need to lose the extra 2 digits

Using codeigniter (though I suppose doesn't really matter).
I pass a user_id to my model to get the correct time for their timezone prior to inserting into my db. When I echo out what is being created, I get the extra 2 digits for some inexplicable reason:

2014-04-14 10:40:3024
//passing the user id
	public function get_time($user_id)
	{
		return $this->db
			->select('timezone')
			->from('user')
			->where('id', $user_id)
			->get()->row();
	}

Open in new window

Any idea what is going on and how I could correct this?

Maybe coincidence but the last 2 digits are 24 - does this indicate the time format (12 or 24 hour)

Also, you have a couple of parts here that aren't really explained

Firstly, how is the date stored in your database (does it include the 24 part...is it stored in a date column).

Secondly, how are you echoing out the returned value - maybe it's just a formatting issue?

Hi, your pointing out the 24 is what made my error click. I was echoing out the time and there wasn't an issue but... I was also returning the last inserted ID which happened to be 24. So it was being appended. Duh... kill me.
Thanks
