Timestamp on Object Creation

Sometimes, it may be useful to have a timestamp of when a database object is created. This can be done using an abstract class with a constructor that sets the timestamp.

In code, it would look something like this:

[Database]
public abstract class BaseOfAllOtherClasses
{
public DateTime Inserted { get; set; }
public BaseOfAllOtherClasses()
{
Inserted = DateTime.Now;
}
}
public class Foo : BaseOfAllOtherClasses {}
public class Bar : BaseOfAllOtherClasses {}

From this, it is possible to get when all the instances were created chronologically by using the following query:

SELECT b.Inserted FROM BaseOfAllOtherClasses e ORDER BY e.Inserted
