(or better $db->addQuotes($blah); note this includes the outer quotes)
wfQuery($blah, DB_WRITE, $fname);
(or better use the various query-builder functions, which will tend to
be safer due to applying propr quoting always, and may be more portable
for not-quite-standard constructs).
These long-, long-, long-obsolete functions have been removed because
they are unreliable -- it's hard to know which database object they will
be sent to, and that's generally icky.
You get a Database object from wfGetDB(DB_MASTER) or wfGetDB(DB_SLAVE).
Writes must go to the master *only*. Many read operations can be taken
from a slave, which will spread load away from your primary server in a
load-balancing replication setup. (On a single server they will both
return the same connection.)
