I had a Trac instance up and running.  I terminated it from the hub, but would now like to restart it.  I did not have backup enabled, but I figured I would be able to restart with what was on that server at the time.  Am I out of luck?

It sounds like the boot from EBS is not currently available.  Are there instructions on manually changing that or on how to backup and restore from an EBS backup?

Terminating a regular Amazon instance is equivalent to blowing it up. They're backed by temporary storage. If you don't backup, your data is lost. OTOH, EBS-backed instances are more permanent. They're persistent and you can turn them and off just pay for the storage space while they're down. We're running a poll about that:
