  1. But biweekly means twice a week! The word you want is fortnightly. 😉

    (Sorry, pet peeve.)

  2. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/biweekly

    “1. Occurring once every two weeks.
    2. (chiefly UK) Occurring twice a week (but see the Usage notes).

    Usage notes: In the adjective and adverb senses, the prefix bi- applies to the week rather than to the events that occur, therefore giving the sense of “every two weeks”. Since the term is also used in the UK to mean “twice a week”, it is ambiguous there. For the sake of clarity, it is advisable to use one of the synonyms instead.”
