Use Timer to get time 40mins from now

Is it possible to convert a value from timer into a real
time (HH:MM:SS)? This is what I'm trying to do -

timeIn40mins = timer + 2400
Response.Write "time + 40 = " & timeConvert(timeIn40mins)

But I dont know what timeConvert should be. Alternatively
is there another way of doing this?

TIA,

Colin

I've cracked it with TimeSerial:

response.write TimeSerial(hour(time), Minute(time) + 40,
Second(time))

<%

ti = DateAdd("n", 40, Now)

function two(x)
two = right("0" & x, 2)
end function

Response.Write two(hour(ti))&":"&two(minute(ti))&":"&two(second(t i))

I'm not clear: do you want the time of day?

Or do you simply want the seconds expressed as H:M:S? IE, 93672 seconds
expressed as 26:01:12?

Yes, thats what I was after, a time of day (time now + 40 minutes).
This is allows me to warn the user exactly when a certain page will
timeout. That way there is no ambiguity, and if the page does timeout
the user cant say they were not warned.
