+### Charset for database connection is always UTF-8
+
+node-firebird doesn't let you chose the charset connection, it will always use UTF8.
+Node is unicode, no matter if your database is using another charset to store string or blob, firebird will transliterate automatically.
+You should use firebird 2.5 server at least.
