I wanted to get this out there and just say sorry if you've been affected by this. It won't happen again.
In short, there hasn't been a payout from Eligius in nearly 3 weeks. so for the past few weeks I've been using my contingency to cover the payouts, but I normally only keep 2 weeks worth of BTC on hand for this. I really hadn't expected to go this long without a payout from Eligius. But the pool luck has been incredibly bad, especially since the increase in difficulty, causing a large delay in payouts.
If you are affected by this, I am very sorry for this lack of judgement on my part. I will be making some changes so this won't happen again, starting with a larger contingency and likely a change in pools.
