Geeky things that amuse me

Wikipedia's entry on the chemist Glenn Seaborg mentions that once Seaborgium was named for him, in honor of his role in synthesising transuranic elements,

For the remainder of his life, Seaborg was the only person in the world who could write his address in chemical elements: Seaborgium, Lawrencium, Berkelium, Californium, Americium (Glenn Seaborg, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California, United States of America).

I wonder if anyone actually tried mailing him a letter addressed so, and did it actually get there?
