    How to handle a Hypergrid address 

    From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
    If you get a address that looks like this: 
    hg.francogrid.org:80:Residence-09:/119/128/190  it may take you to the exact coordinates if you paste it into the address bar of Firestorm
