Default using the server's time?

How do I use the server's time and date as variables in an if statement?
for example:

if 'server's date here' = 'some preset date' Then
End if

Also, what format is the date in? Let's say I would want to redirect to a certain page depending on whether the date was even or odd. How would I do this?

the format depends on the whatever date function you use.

Now() returns 12/16/2003 2:06:55 PM

for the even and odd you will have to pull out the day number and run maybe a SELECT CASE statement.
