Eco Generator Ideas  - Unleash the green

Page history last edited by John Davitt 14 years, 7 months ago

Slight change of format here and for all future subject specific Generators. Also a semantic experiment with while - a temporal condition rather than our usual as


This page contains all the current Do & While Commands that are in the EGG

(Event Generator Green - sorry!) The aim is to unleash the inner-reflection that doing something constructive outside can provide!


Just scroll down to add and adjust. Have fun  ..  John

PS. It would be nice to build a really international resource under this heading.

Please note that editing any of the lists on this or any other page will not be automatically reflected in each Generator - but that's something we are working towards - I still update manually for the moment and will announce each imminent releae in these wiki pages. J
