comment MySQL table design / architecture, table is too big
Values in TEXT columns are not stored in the row buffer, but nonetheless get stored in the database at some other memory location (depending on storage engine). Including TEXT fields in your queries might give you performance problems (see: stackoverflow.com/questions/2883867/…)
