I implemented a new row in the config page to select the time zone. 

"Local": Time zone where the browser runs
"Server": Time zone where the midas server runs (you have to update mhttpd for that)
"UTC+X": Any other time zone

The setting affects both the status header and the history display.

I spent quite some time with "named" time zones like "PST" "EST" "CEST", but the 
support for that is not that great in JavaScript, so I decided to go with simple 
UTC+X. Hope that's ok.

Please give it a try and let me know if it's working for you.
