daily bred is not at all useful: the 'gift' is its complication
daily bred website is generated from a writing performance residency at Squat Space, Sydney in April 2001. Anne Walton instigated the idea and invited Teri Hoskin to collaborate. The site of the residency is translated here, the time before and ongoing in a meandering fashion, - between this screen and you - whoever you are.
web architecture and programming: Teri Hoskin

daily bred is hosted by the
| platform, browser and plug-in requirements.
daily bred incorporates a lot of smallish quicktime audio/visual files. We've tried to keep the file sizes quite small, the largest is 130k and shouldn't take too long to download, or, what we've tried to do is provide other things for you to incorporate (in keeping with corporeal concerns) whilst the files enter your machine. This in the way of selvege awareness.
If you keep the windows open as you go the audio components will layer - you might like to play with this, - we do. You can adjust volume levels or stop the video/audio with the quicktime menu bar. The movies can also be saved to disk.
Quicktime plugins are available for both Macintosh or Windows.
The optimum browser for font and layout control is Internet Explorer 5 but the site works ok on Netscape Navigator 4.7 and Netscape 6 too
Optimum screen size (the one used for design) is 1024 x 768
