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).
