Litecoin price and the PPS ratio

Because of the recent spike in Litecoin prices, we've been forced to lower the PPS ratio to 100%, as the merged-mined cryptocurrencies are now far less profitable compared to LTC.
The pool is currently running with a very thin safety margin (total theoretic profitability at the time of this writing is 101.4%, and that does not take into account orphaned blocks, bad luck, or pool expenses), so if the trend continues we will need to lower the ratio further. We may only be able to adjust it upwards if Litecoin rates go back down or Dogecoin rates catch up.
