The graphics are good, jumping the gun is not.

Jumping the gun?

Not yet.

I wish see was a reppie, then she could see everything.

A reppie? Then she would tear your head off and flail the skin from your bones.

I can't believe you spelled her name wrong!

Oops!

how do I compute the last three digits of 2014C1+2013C3+2014C5+...+2014C2013 by hand?

Are sure about that 2013 in there?

They are all 2014 except for that one?

Your second term is 2013C3, that can not be right.

Why? It alternates between 2014 and 2013. I will write it out better:

2014C1+2013C3+2014C5+**2013C7**...+2014C2013
