Dates in Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is anyone at Microsoft familiar with the International Date Line?  It is an imaginary but very real line in the middle of the Pacific which, when you cross it you either gain a day or lose a day depending on which way you are headed.  It makes it possible to actually finish something (like an appointment or plane landing) before you start it!

    You can actually begin flying eastward at noon (say from Japan) and arrive at your destination, say San Francisco at 09:30 on the SAME DAY since you've crossed this line.  You arrive before you even get on your plane if you are considering just the dates/times on an Outlook Calendar.  Obviously confusing to some, impossible to fathom for the programmers at Microsoft since Outlook won't let you enter an end time prior to a start time.

    Microsoft means business... unless you happen to travel the world I guess????
