The graphics are good, jumping the gun is not.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Oops!

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

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
