The $OutputSizeLimit option tells you the current limit - by default
it is 1,048,576 bytes. $OutputSizeLimit can be set via SetOptions like
(if you wanted a 10 meg limit for the current notebook)

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], OutputSizeLimit -> 10000000]

or you can also set OutputSizeLimit in Options Inspector (in the
Global Preferences) to Infinity or a specific number. You might want
to set it to something big enough to handle what you want rather than
infinity since that would fill up your entire disk and take forever.
