If any of you have Popular Science, their last issue has a puzzle (http://www.popsci.com/archive/sevenstars)
You don't need to have a subscription to the magazine to work on the puzzle, but I've only been able to get to the second stage (no idea how far it goes). Have a go at it!

you were not much of a puzzle person. Entering the first thing I listed in the search box brought you to the second box. :)

Listed in the search box?

I'm just assuming that the page is their version of a 403 error. I'm not working under the assumption its actually a level, since that would be irritatingly misleading.
