The timestamp they are referring to has nothing to do with the
application you download, WGA does not do anything to the application.
It simply "verifies" your copy of windows and allows you to download the
application. The timestamp is quite simply to make sure you do not use
the same code over and over and that you generate a new one each time
you want to download something from the Microsoft download center.
Do not claim this as your own, I discovered this weeks ago.
