Transfer Queue vs Direct Transfer

Suddenly, everything is going to my transfer queue and staying there. I can't transfer anything. I used to get direct transfer -- the first thing I transferred this morning was direct -- but now it's suddenly changed, and I don't know how to change it back.

OK, things aren't getting better. I went back to check, and the .jpg I was trying to transfer is no longer in my transfer queue, but it isn't any place else either. It didn't upload to my remote. My web site is still a mess.
