NKOTB are here - New Kids On The Blogs. With the support of new member (and most generous host) Paul Walsh, this boyband is set to dominate the music markets of southern Carlow, Laois, Leitrim and the Aran Islands with their unique covers of:
- Relight my Fire(fox)
- Come on Baby, light my Fire(fox)
- Goodness Gracious, great balls of Fire(fox)
- We did
n'tstart the Fire(fox)
- and of course Johnny Cash's Burning Ring of Fire(fox)
Last night's launch party for Firefox 3 was fun. I got to meet so many people and put faces to names, as well as catch up with many more.
One of the personal highlights was gathering bloggers together (thank you Elly!) for this photo. Can't imagine there's been this many together since the Blog Awards.

I'll get in trouble now trying to name everyone and missing people, but the ones I know - and Elly has helped me find - are:
Peter Donegan, Niall Donegan, Dennis Deery, Paul Campbell, Alan O' Rourke, Justin Mason, Keith Gaughan, Eamon Leonard, Iarfhlaith Kelly, Maryrose Lyons, Laura Czajkowski, Elly Parker, Darragh Ó Héiligh, Gordon Murray, Niamh Smith, David Maybury, Anthony McGuinness, Darren Byrne, Liz Lyons and of course Paul Walsh and Adrian (Aido) McMahon.
(Missing are Joe Drumgoole (who stepped away) - apparently Putplace is in beta next week - and George Pratt who was nowhere to be found...)
Got them all to autograph the back of the photo too!
I also finally got to meet the lovely Marie, to chat with Roseanne, to meet (I think?) Damian Bannon, to meet Keith and Niall from Blacknight, to see George's new N95 (he's very proud GM!), to have a pint with John Peavoy and Gordon (after much twittering of location) and to kidnap Debbiemet, who is just one of the nicest people ever. Need your garden done? Contact her.
Elly was lucky enough to bag herself a launch t-shirt.
Once Ben finally showed up and bar was closing, we predictably headed on to Eddie's where himself and Liz wanted to get in on the Hello Sheila thing...
Other photos of this nature taken by the lovely people at Quest.ie are live on EventPhotoIreland. I love this one of Paul and Aido. Bohoe also has some great shots on pix.ie

If you know of anyone in the photo that I missed, if you were there and enjoyed it or if you just want to say how silly I looked in the above photo, please leave a comment :)
