Jeff's choice of word.
Kanban is Japanese but also sounds Chinese where
Kan = look, see
Ban = board (I think)
Hence Kanban means "notice board"
Originally, this Kanban had postings by Jeff alone and involves issues like house breakins, robberies, car thefts and the like.
As we will be shifting to our new Forum engine soon, i believe the Webteam will recover most of the old stuff. So, don't hold yr breadth while we wait for the resurrection.
I ran this thru Alta-Vista's translation webpage and got -
"Oh, original is the meaning"
I think Eric is saying that the meaning of "Kanban" as given above is correct.
Do note that translation engines do not give correct gramatical translations.
