Jeff sez:
How about a named pipe (fifo)?  Of course then you might have issues with
simultaneous calls.  You would have to have a pool of them and somehow
manage locking them...


I'm curious about what the advantages are of storing audio in a blob.
Wouldn't it be more efficient to store it in a file and just put the
filename in the database?
