"Bi-weekly" right or wrong seems to be confusing. Get rid of the doubt and call it 84 hourly instead :D

Not to be a pedant, but bi-weekly does mean once in two weeks.  Semi-weekly would mean twice a week.  It works the same with bi-annually and semi-annually.

Wow, thanks guys.  I just posted a new version of "Fishing In Skyrim" that includes "dynamite fishing", which is a real blast. =) 

 

For the record, my fiance died from something called Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot you get from sitting in one position for too long. Gamers are at high risk for DVT - she died after playing MW3 for 11 hours. The only warning sign she had was a cramp in her leg. Two hours later, she was dead.

 

The best way to avoid DVT is simple: Save your game, stand up, and walk around for 2-3 minutes every 3 or 4 hours. Go to the fridge, pee, look out the window, play with your pet...anything, just MOVE. That simple action would have saved her life.

Great show, Shaun. I can always rely on it for a few good laughs and finding some interesting mods to enhance my gameplay experience.

Bi-weekly means every 2 weeks OR twice a week, there is no standard; however, the former makes the most sense and is how I would use it.

Love the Chrysamere quest! Wish they would perfect those quests and add them to the console versions.

shaun mcinnis - i just wanted to show my appreciation for a show like this. giving credit and encouraging modders can only do good. also showing other companies that modding can really lift a game up might encourage other developers to allow a certain degree of modification to their games (nudge nudge UBISOFT... nudge nudge Farcry 3 and AC3). skyrim and GTA shouldnt be the only ones.

 @danjammer69 Apparently I didn't search for it properly! Thanks for covering that.

 @analgrin markiie is absolutely on the money. The onus is on you as the reader to better inform yourself of the terminology, not on the writer to dumb it down.

 @markiie I like "fortnightly" - but then I'm English. When I say stuff like that, people look at me like I'm weird

 @markiie

 In UK English bi-weekly usually means twice a week and fortnightly means every two weeks.

 @markiie According to every dictionary I've checked it can mean both.  Although it does always reference semi-weekly when referring to bi-weekly in the sense of twice a week. It's another one of those weird instances where the English language fails because of people with a lesser understanding of language and grammar so it takes on a double meaning.

 @snaux Gosh--I am so sorry for your loss. Great advice from someone with firsthand knowledge.

 @Jedi_Ninja9 I'm afraid your humor is too highbrow for me to possibly comprehend.

 @Weslybarton Well, if you want Chrysamere on consoles you can always play Morrowind on Xbox ;)
