As far as I understand this, as long as I use setTimestamp/setDate and
getTimestamp/getDate I should be safe to get the same information back,
INDEPENDENT of any timezone in the system, java or whatever?

other is not specified.

I don't know what kind of notation this is, but if it is similar to javas
notation ([milli]seconds since ...) then there should not be any timezone
If it is used, then what for?
And: Can I set it globally?
