You can do regular math on it as long as you save the date in $ctime format.

on *:LOAD: set %first.run $ctime

Then you can simply add 30 days by adding the amt of seconds in 30 days to the var.

set %30days $calc($ctime + 30 * 24 * 3600)

ok i figured this much out:
$date($calc($ctime + 30 * 24 * 3600))
returns
01/12/03
instead of
12/01/03

and $date($ctime)
01/11/03
instead of
11/01/03

No. Americans use Month/Day/Year.

While the majority of the normal world uses day/month/year.

Silly country.

Actually the only reasonable system would be the ISO standard, YYYY/MM/DD. (Ordered from largest to smallest like the time, so it can be sorted alphabetically and come up in the right order)

At least the American system gets it right except for the year.

yes and the opinion of a wanna be leet talking child should be listened to by all, really the US is backwards from the rest of the world, no other country uses dates that way, now u can argue its because americans are backwards or everyone else is, but put quite simpley, the us does it to be different from the rest of the world, as with our non compliance with using the metric system, like the rest of the world, again this is by no means any arguement claiming who is correct and who isnt. and it isnt mirc's place to be figuring this out, mirc is for enjoying the ability to meet ppl ud never have the chance to any other way, politics and suchs shouldnt be its target.

it's what you're used to i suppose, the idea of mm/dd/yy sounds idiotic to me.
