Experimenting with upload and insert a picture into a MySQL database -
Agile Web D. with Rails p362-3.

We have rails 1.0.0 and MySQL 3.23.58.

I get an error
'You have an error in your SQL syntax near'
because rails uses the x'ffdbff....' notation for the blob which is not
available until MySQL 4

Is there a way of switching Rails to use the 0xffdbff... notation?
