List Item Limits

I was just reminded today about the limits on how many items you can have on a list.
The limits are divided by the type of fields as dictated by the Microsoft article titled “Column Limit Exceeded” Message When You Add a New Column to a SharePoint Services List .
Part of the article:
With Windows SharePoint Services, you can create the following numbers of each column type for each list or library:
64 Single line of text and Choice (drop-down menu or radio buttons)
31 Multiple lines of text and Choice (check boxes (allow multiple sections))
32 Number and currency
32 Hyperlink
16 Date and time
16 Lookup
16 Yes/No
8 Calculated
