Hello, I'm new to ASP, and I'm making a web page for my son... He was born on september 15th 2005, at 3:04 EST. (9/15/05) I want to have a spot on the bottom of the page that says... "I'm xx hours, xx minutes, and xx seconds old"

if anyone could help me with this that would be awesome!!!!

This will give you the difference in seconds. Then you can manipulate the variable to break it down into hours, minutes and seconds.

Dim dBirth, tDiff
dBirth = CDate("9/15/2005 3:04 PM")
tDiff = datediff("s", dBirth, Now())
Response.Write "<p>I am " & tDiff & " seconds old.</p>"
