sistering joists

I was told, when I sister joists, to nail from each side with the nails opposing one another. What does this mean?

Nailing joists together

You should nail at an angle, not perfectly perpendicular to the joist. And use opposing angles so that the joists can't pull apart easily. Do the same on both sides. I can't say how close together the nails should be but, unless you're doing alot of them, more is better than less.
