Column limit

Using my sql is there a limit to how many column you can have? Or for a mesure of good desighn is there a limit that you should try to stay away from. I have a table with about 55 columns in it about 40 0f them are just yes/no fields. Is that OK?

In MYSQl 3.23.2 limits are columns in table = 3398 and length of row w/o BLOB or TEXT = 65534 Bytes. Straight from the manual. You should be fine
