Oct-31-08  Xeroxx: Should probably be Jacob Øst Hansen.

(Ost means cheese by the way)

Oct-31-08  Harvestman: Reminds me of the story of the French hotel manager who had a guest by the name of HØST. As a frenchman, he was unable to pronounce the name, because the 'S' & 'T' are the final consonants in the word, with no vowels after them, and so are not pronounced, the initial 'H' has no sound in French, and the 'O' has been crossed out.

"Monsieur ....?" <Helpless Gallic shrug>

  moronovich: <Harvestman> Yeah , and you can look under the movietitle "The man who wasn´t there".... :)

Actually Jacob once drew Kasparov ! Kudos.

Nov-02-08  A.G. Argent: Nope, <Xerrox>, Ost is east and kaas is cheese. Whatever. <Another garlic shrug>. Sounds like the name of a rock band.
Feb-05-09  Xeroxx: ost definitely means cheese.

  whiteshark: Øst means <east>.
Nov-28-17  waustad: Ost (I don't know what diacriticals are involved) means cheese in Swedish. My cousin in Linköping called a cheese slicer something that sounded like oost kneef (cheese knife). Denmark may be different. Perhaps this is the source of the confusion here. I was looking for my Swedish English dictionary but I couldn't find it. I have a memory of lending it to somebody years ago and it may not have ever been returned.

  moronovich: Ost is <cheese>

But Jakobs name is Jakob Øst Hansen and Øst means <east> as <whiteshark has already pointed out.

Actually some people in the western part of DK has the name West Hansen.

And Jakob lives in the eastern part.

In some ways Denmark is seemingly a very logical country ;)
