Oops, posted something in the wrong forum

http://www.jumbletown.ie/forums/showthread.php?t=154289

Is there any way that I can move a thread I've posted in the wrong forum? I posted it in Home Improvements, instead of Miscellaneous.

Thanks...

We have 5 hens in our back garden in a Dublin suburb. Various different breeds, with appearance and egg-laying rate both being factors in deciding which to get. We increased our 'flock' from 3...

Hi,

They have 750ml bottles of white vinegar in Tesco for 69c, and malt vinegar (brown) for 39c (I'm not sure if the brown vinegar would undo some of the cleaning benefits by leaving brown marks). ...

I presume it's because most people won't actually buy the new printer each time they want the cartridges, and people will have to keep on buying the consumables once they have the hardware.
