Default How often will this cron job execute

Hi,

I've got the following entry in my cron job:

1 1 1 */2 * me my-this-job

How often will it execute?

Checking the log, I notice that it run on Jan 1 and Mar 1. That's really
not something that I've been expecting for. I have another cron job fired
at Feb 1, so no doubt that my cron was working on Feb 1 and my my-this-job
didn't get fired up then.

Is there anything that I don't know?

Thanks

"*/2" means "every other month".
