I don't know where the Mac Intel and Windows slaves are located, but
the Chromium ones have been gone since a power line got knocked down
in Mountain View late on December 23 (PST). I rebooted the machines on
the 29th, but apparently they're not set up to rejoin on reboot, and I
didn't have the login information.

Anyway, I'm sure they'll be back once everyone's back at work tomorrow.
