Yagan is an AMD Athlon 1.2 GHz with 512meg RAM, a 20g HD and a 120Gb HD.
It has the IP address 188.8.131.52, with RDNS at westnet.com.au.
Yagan was named after the Nyungah revolutionary leader "Yagan" who led a resistance against colonial invaders early in Western Australias history.
Although he was hopelessly outnumbered and thus defeated by the imperial forces of britain, he belongs in the pantheon of great revolutionary leaders like Guevara, Ghandi or Zapata.
The Server is run by the imc-perth tech collective
, and hosts the following indy sites:
[ Perth Indymedia
| Manila Indymedia
The server also acts as a community server for Perth and WA social & enviro groups:
[ Project Safecom
| Perth Social Forum
| Baxter Watch
| Baxter05 Convergance site
| Friends of the Alma Street Centre
| Friends of Fremantle
| Anarcon hub site

Furthermore the server has a irc server, video conferencing gateway, jabber server, SMS messaging facilities and various other goodies for use by the local activist community.
At present, we probably cant cope with any more indy sites, as the bandwidth bills are starting to hurt, and we want to remain focused on our local community.
Heres a photo of our server (with a couple of like minded friends in a little "colo" somewhere south of endor);
