Jacque noted the machine limits, but I'm curious about a human question:

At an average of ~3,000 characters per printed page, if I'm doing the 
math right then 1.3 GB of text = 433,333 pages worth of content.

For comparison, the entire text of the KJV Bible from the Gutenberg 
Project is 4.5 MB.

What are you displaying for the user to read during the session?
