With it being skynet day and all that, have the ISPs seen any changes in usage patterns? HTTP to rapidshare up and torrents down? Much more VPN traffic?

Or is it the same as usual with most people not giving a $#17 about it and just going to keep going till they get a warning? Too early to tell?

I think largely anyone who isn't a member of geekzone or GP forums will still be ignorant
