I'm using jquery_countdown (http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html) to set a 60-minute timer.  I know that I can run a callback function on time expiration, but is there a way to automatically submit the form?

I tried the following, but it failed to submit (although, there were no errors in the firebug console):
    <div class="countdown"></div>
    <form id="formsamp" action="#">
    <textarea name="bft"></textarea>
    <input type="submit" name="op" value="Submit" />
    </form>
    
    jquery_countdown_add
    (
    	".countdown", 
    	array
    	(
    		"until" => 10, 
    		"onExpiry" => "finished"
    	)
    );
    
    function finished() { 
      $('#formsamp').submit(function(){return true;}); 
    }
