JavaScript timeouts in browsers and node can't be longer than 24 days. With foreverest they can!

Usage

var timeout = require('foreverest');

// this will call immediately:
setTimeout(function () {
  console.log('oops, that should have been after 30d, but it was 1ms!');
}, 30 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);

// this will work:
timeout(function () {
  console.log('after 30d');
}, 30 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);

API

var to = timeout(fn, dur)

Call fn after dur milliseconds.
