Timezone and naming of logfiles

See original GitHub issue

In lib/logs.js Date().toISOString() is used to generate a datestring for the logfiles. The timezone for it is always UTC. Could we have a local timezone here?

Also: What happens when you enable multiple servers for autostart? Will multiple logfiles “collide” with each other because of a same name? As a solution could we have the filename suffixed with the actual servername?

UTC is the most correct as admins might be from multiple timezones. It also takes care of winter vs summer time. UTC never lies 😃

#197 works great, thanks. #198 I would prefer to have the correct timestamp in the filename itself.
