in reply to Large chunks of text: in-database or in-filesystem?

What are you going to need?

On one hand, keeping files in the filesystem will always be faster. You don't have the overhead of the database layer.

On the other hand, keeping the file in the db buys you the ability to search quickly. That's pretty dang useful.

As far as accessing the text data, it doesn't sound like either method is a dealbreaker. 65K isn't /that/ much.
