I want to recieve all rows from a mysql table and got problems immedietly when adding a "created" field to the model. The created-field is a TIMESTAMP in mysql and appears to be a DateTimeOffset in the model. This give me bug-like-problem when reading the data. How am I possible to cast this field to a string or something?

public static string TimestampToString(this System.Data.Linq.Binary binary)  
{
  byte[] binarybytes = binary.ToArray();  
  string result = "";  
  foreach (byte b in binarybytes)  
  {
    result += b.ToString() + "|";  
  }
  result = result.Substring(0, result.Length - 1);
  return result;  
}
