      var days = 0;
      var difference = 0;

      date1 = new Date(yourdate); // this is our date      
      today = new Date(); //this is the date time now which was "07/02/2007 11:40 AM"
        alert(date1) //just to check input date
        alert(today) //just to check current date
        difference = date1 - today;
          minutes = Math.round(difference/(1000*60)); // compute minutes
        alert(minutes); //generated -2 minutes
      if (minutes<0)
            alert("The time you have chosen has already passed.");
