They are all there on the "gps traces" tab, when you are logged in you
can upload files an see the ones you have uploaded. As it stands now
the upload page checks your cookie when you are logging in.

In "dao.rb" there is a "Limit $pages,5000" on the SQL that feteches
trackpoint fromthe DB. I don't think you get any data if the amount of
trackpoint in your request exceeds 5000 and no page number was
defined. Not sure though, my memory might fail me.

The REST interface is documented in the wiki.
