F4 Entity Pickup Timer

    Hey, so I'm using XP books in my F4 menu and I want to make it so that only TEAM_X can pick up books/use the entity, and books can only be used every X seconds.

    Here is the use function, which currently says that anyone can use it as many times as they want. If there is no way to make it job-specific it's fine, but I would like to limt the uses to 1 every 600 seconds.

    Make TEAM_X have the command "allow" and the *ID job* of the job so they can only do it.

    Set entity delay when bought to 600 simple, they gotta wait 600 sec now to rebuy it or use it

    Appreciate that se7ensins, but this is what I meant:

    If I drop an XP book and someone uses it, this happens

    Code (Text):
    function ENT:Use( activator )
        if( self:Getexperience() == 0 ) then return end
        if( activator:IsValid() and activator:IsPlayer() ) then
            activator:addXP( self:Getexperience() or 0 )
            self:Setexperience( 0 )
            if self.Charges <= 0 then
                activator:ChatPrint("You have finished reading "..self:Gettitle().."!")
                activator:ChatPrint("You have read a few chapters of "..self:Gettitle().."!")
    and I want to add a 600 second delay before that person can use it again. I found this on delays and cooldowns, just not sure how to add it :/

    Code (Text):
    local cooldown = 86400 -- 24 hours in seconds ( 24*60*60 )

    local function myFunc()
        local nextUse = cookie.GetNumber( "myFuncNextUse", 0 )
        local time = os.time()

        if time < nextUse then
            print( "The event is on cooldown and has not been triggered" )
            local nextUseString = os.date( "%Y/%m/%d - %H:%M:%S" , nextUse ) -- Format the next use time nicely
            print( "The event will be available for use again on: " .. nextUseString )
            print( "The event has been successfully triggered!" )
            cookie.Set( "myFuncNextUse", time + cooldown )
    Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Especially if I'm not even using the right event timer here. Thanks
