Just only to clarify that when I say 'the method lastModified or
getLastModified does not care miliseconds and return units in seconds' I do not
mean that the funtion returns seconds.. I mean that if the real time is
'1292005037195' it returns '1292005037000' ignoring the 195ms.

(The timestamp of creation of the file, In some file systems does this.)

I tried to be as much clear as it is posible.
