You can have several million records in a table easily -- I've done 10
million personally, but you can find people doing that many records a _day_.
Hitting 1 billion records should probably not be impossible either -- it all
depends on your hardware, and perhaps more importantly, what kind of queries
you're running against it. 50000 is absolutely no problem at all.
