Convert SQL Server DateTime object to BIGINT (.Net ticks)

I need to convert a DateTime type value to BIGINT type in .Net ticks format (number of 100-nanosecond intervals that have elapsed since 12:00:00 midnight, January 1, 0001).

The conversion should be perform in Sql server 2008 using T-SQL query

For example:

DateTime value - 12/09/2011 00:00:00

will convert to:

BIGINT value - 634513824000000000

I have found a CodeProject article that may assist: Convert DateTime To .NET Ticks Using T-SQL

I enclose the SQL function from the above article (I hope this is ok? As it requires registration.)

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[MonthToDays365] (@month int)
RETURNS int
WITH SCHEMABINDING
AS
-- converts the given month (0-12) to the corresponding number of days into the year (by end of month)
-- this function is for non-leap years
BEGIN 
RETURN
    CASE @month
        WHEN 0 THEN 0
        WHEN 1 THEN 31
        WHEN 2 THEN 59
        WHEN 3 THEN 90
        WHEN 4 THEN 120
        WHEN 5 THEN 151
        WHEN 6 THEN 181
        WHEN 7 THEN 212
        WHEN 8 THEN 243
        WHEN 9 THEN 273
        WHEN 10 THEN 304
        WHEN 11 THEN 334
        WHEN 12 THEN 365
        ELSE 0
    END
END

GO

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[MonthToDays366] (@month int)
