Here's another idea: If people first suggest various interesting searches, you could accumulate a list of "super-topics" by query. Then offline, you do full text searches and generate a hit list per query. Then each original article, stripped of email addresses, can put zipped and placed on the server, all 300 megabytes shrunken to 20mb (??). Occasionally someone suggests a new query, you add it to the list, and reindex once per month or two. Advantages: full-text search; computation offline; entire database online compressed (browsers must support zip); full interesting list of possible searches; newbie-friendly.
