It's that time of year when I give my novel away for 5 days as it's set in the few weeks over Christmas and New Year.   Dec 19-23

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 in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
If you get an address like this:     
paste it into the address bar of Firestorm, see if it takes you to the exact coordinates.
