A Hosting Issue

Hey everyone.
I recently created a news site for my middle school that I go to. It's nearly all dynamic PHP and MySQL. The school is currently using 1&1 for their hosting, and I just noticed that they have a 100 megabyte database limit.
I would prefer if they used godaddy, as their databases don't seem to have such a whimpy limit.
Do you think that the 100 megabyte max will become an issue in the future?

BTY, The database will be exactly this -

story_id : smallint(5) unsigned
title : tinytext
author : varchar(40)
pubdate : varchar(26)
article : text
keywords : tinytext

The database will also not be storing any images, just text.

i don't think your going to have a problem with 100mb, that would take a lot of records to fill that up

With that style of database, it's going to take a long time to fill up. I've had some major websites use databases that small, and they were fully db driven.
