Now that’s interesting! We would say bi-weekly to indicate every two weeks, so I used bi-daily to indicate every two days. We’d say twice daily if we meant...twice daily...! ;)

True. And "bi-monthly" in publishing certainly means every two months. I guess "bi-daily" just sounded weird.

(In medical terms, we would write "q2d.")

I’m betting the 2d in that is for two days...? Just a hunch. ;)
