Story getting chopped off

Is there a limit to how long a story can be in Geeklog? Or is there a limit to how long an entry can be in MySQL?

I posted an article this morning, and when I checked it, the last several paragraphs are gone, chopped off in mid-sentence. I added them back in, and they disappeared again.

You can see the article in question at http://www.oddballcomics.com/article.php?story=2007-05-21

The site has a heavily-edited story template that formats and places the thumbnail images down the right side of the page.

Any advice oyu can offer would be most appreciated.
I have no idea what I'm doing.

Are you using the intro text box for the whole story?

You're running into the MySQL limit for TEXT fields. See this discussion, for example. It's about static pages, but the same thing applies to the story introtext and bodytext fields as well.
