Welcome to 1Macman's Place
I started this website, as a place, where my family and friends can stay in touch and share things with each other. I wanted to make something that felt more our own, away from the larger social media sites.
Family and friends can share things like, their favorite photos or the latest news, a special event such as a birthday or an anniversary, or even a home movie. For more information on sharing your content see sharing information.
I am continually working to improve the website, hopefully making your visit, more enjoyable. If you have a suggestion for the website, please feel free to contact me anytime. Also make sure to tell other family members and friends about the site, so they can participate and enjoy it too.
On the Website
Check out the sidebar to find things like site information, my tribute to Steve Jobs and a link to my YouTube channel.
I made somechanges to the Event List. You can now click to show the details for a particular event. It makes the list shorter and much easier to read.
I made some changes to th photo Gallery page and added a few new photos to the photo wall.
If you just upgraded your iPhone or iPad to iOS 8. I added a tip that shows some new functions, tricks, and time-savers that are hidden in some of your favorite apps.
October events are now posted on the website.
I changed the name of the In Touch page to Message Center as well as modified some things on the page.
