I am trying to create a cookie that expires 20 minute from now. This is the code I am using.

At system out I get
12/05/2009 11:50:17 now: 12/5/2009 11:50:17
12/05/2009 11:50:17 now+20: 12/5/2009 12:10:17

which is correct.

However when I check the expiration time of the cookie this is what I get:
15:10:21 which is 3 hours and 20 minutes from now.

What am I doing wrong?
Response.SetCookieField(MyCookies, '', '/', Incminute(Now,20), False);

I would check to see that the server time is correct and that there are no time zone differences.  Cookies are stored on the client system and ASP code is run, for the most part, on the server.  I would like to at least be able to rule that our before making another attempt.  Let me know how it goes.
