After the Internet

Question Club, suppose something happened to the internet as we know it. Could be a catastrophic hacking attack, EMP, or just the inexorable throttling of free expression by business interests, big government, and various kinds of fanatics. Doesn't matter.

What do you think might come next?

I need to sell my car TQC.
A friend has said he'll look at it but I'm panicking of he doesn't want it. It needs to go in the next 3 weeks but I'd like to keep it for as long as I can. I guess the easiest thing to do is to drive to the DMV and meet whatever buyer there then get a taxi home?
As far as payment, anything other than cash on the day seems unreliable.
Wwtqcd? (I'm in florida if it makes a difference)
ahoy!

Whatchamacallit

Hey TQC, my homework was to watch Up (really!) and find a theme on material culture somewhere with in. I'm going to focus on the performative nature of each character's clothing, and I don't know what this beaded decoration that Russell wears is. Does it have a name? TIA!

FTP uploading issues

hey TQC...anyone out there have WS_FTP and can help me out?

i have always used WS_FTP to upload stuff to my hosted domain space. one of the things i store on my domain space is writing (MS Word/OpenOffice .doc files). i have always uploaded these files with NO problems whatsoever.

i am reinstalling everything (just went up to Windows 7, and now WS_FTP is in version 12) and now when i try to upload a .doc file, it just says "transfer failed", no reason why.

can anyone help me with this? their tech support is nonexistent and nothing comes up when you google/search in their FAQ. i've tried googling for "upload problems" and "cannot upload .doc files".

thanks in advance cuz this is getting on my last f-ing nerve.
