Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On 4/14/11 at 10:35 PM EST I asked the question "Outlook 2003 does not import .ics calendar while outlook 2007 does" on SO yet on 4/15/11 at 8:18 AM EST the question says it was asked today.

Why is that?

Time stamps (as with everything else on the site, for your future reference) adhere to the UTC timezone, not on the user's timezone. In this case, 22:35 EST corresponds to 02:00 UTC, which is in the same day as 12:18 UTC (or 08:18 EST).
