    Tom wil go offline.

    Tom is having a session with a group of people over Skype. Tom to a person who is moderating the session:- "How long is this session going to last or until what time will you continue this session its already 12 AM?"

    The moderator:- "Just fifteen more minutes for this session to complete."

    Tom:- "Okay, so it is going to last for the next fifteen minutes but if it takes more than this, I will go offline and won't come online until tomorrow."

    Please check.

    The moderator:- "Just fifteen more minutes."

    Tom:- "Okay, but if it goes on (any) longer, I'm going offline. I won't be back until tomorrow."

    Tufguy, please don't combine a colon with a hyphen. Use the colon by itself.

    Are my sentences totally wrong? If we want to ask about specific time like "until what time will you continue this session its already 12 AM?" (I know this sentence is not correct but it is just to give you an idea about what I want to say) Then, what is the correct way?

    "I thought it was a two hour session that lasts from 10 PM to 12 AM?" Is it correct?
