Hello, I am Denise Leo the owner and developer of Clarified.Com.

Clarified.Com is designed to provide answers to all your computer queries. I’m a very early and enthusiastic adopter of technology and have been involved in graphic and web design since the late 1960s.

During the late ‘60s, I worked for a major bank as an accounting machinist. I remember we used IBM machines. These accounting machines were just very basic calculators, the size of a small refrigerator.

This bank had the first computer used by a Bank in Australia and one of the first computers in Australia. I was selected to work at Head Office in Sydney in 1969 and came in daily contact with this computer, “Fabacus,” and its workings. I enjoyed working right in the heart of Sydney’s centre, living in Cremorne and traveling to work each morning by ferry.

I bought my first home computer in 1983, a sharp MZ-3540, which runs the CP/M operating system. This was closely followed by the purchase of a Commodore plus/4 for my children. I still own, and occasionally use, these vintage computers. One room of our home is a computer graveyard, being chock full of Atari STs, Commodore Amigas, various 486s and parts.

The arrival of the internet transformed my life. Personally, I think the internet is a significantly greater event than man walking on the moon. The Internet has become a tool utilised by millions of people every day. What might we do if we didn’t have the simplicity of banking, paying bills etc. over the internet? In the foreseeable future, the Mobile Internet will additionally bring numerous changes to our lives.

I enjoy web development and graphic design and have spent many hours since the mid-90s learning to create the web sites I desired.

2006 saw the arrival of the mobile web. I enjoy developing mobile web applications designed to be viewed on your mobile phone, smart phone, iPhone or iPad devices.
I have developed over 60 mobile web apps since then.

Two of my mobile web applications have had the huge honour of being featured on mobi mtld’s site showcase. To my knowledge, I’m the sole Australian web developer to have been accorded this honour.
Clarified.Com is a work in progress, so please bookmark the site and come back often to view updates.
