     The building that I live in has four addresses. I am not counting suite numbers as different. The three businesses on the ground floor are at 1313, 1315, and 1317. The apartments on the second floor have 1313 1/2. (Yes, that one half is really there.)

     Some buildings facing on more than one street even have different street names in their different addresses. I recall reading an article in "Byte" oodles of years ago that was on an arson program and the difficulties they had in determining which addresses applied to which buidlings.

     Look out.

     Be careful. That feeling of power might be self-electrocution. <G>
