In C# / .NET it is possible to check time difference as number of days, hours and minutes as shown below.

TimeSpan example

DateTime t1 = new DateTime(2000, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0);
DateTime t2 = new DateTime(2012, 5, 10, 12, 30, 00, 500 );

TimeSpan dt = t2 - t1;

Console.WriteLine(dt.Days + " days " 
	+ dt.Hours + " hours " + dt.Minutes + " minutes");

Console.WriteLine("total days: " + dt.TotalDays);
Console.WriteLine("total hours: " + dt.TotalHours);
Console.WriteLine("total minutes: " + dt.TotalMinutes);

Output:

total days: 4513.52083912037
