  1. Kalo aku sih mending tak matiin aja semua ‘auto handler’-nya itu pake TweakUI.

    Toh tinggal buka Explorer kalo mau liat isi CD / USB drive, buka WinDVD kalo mau setel DVD, buka Nero kalo mau nge-burn ke CD blank. Menurutku kok lebih praktis, daripada otomatis buka sendiri tapi sering salah2…

    Seperti kata seseorang (aku lupa siapa)…
    “Aku mau komputer yang cerdas. Tapi kalo tidak bisa, aku mau komputer bodoh yang tau bahwa dirinya bodoh; bukan komputer bodoh yang merasa dirinya pintar”.
