What are the last three digits of the number N=2(1!)!+2(2!)!+...+2(1000!)!?

let's look at the first few terms

2(1!) = 2

2(2!) = 4

2(3!) = 12

2(4!) = 48

2(5!) = 240

2(6!) = 1440

2(7!) = 10080

2(8!) = 80640

2(9!) = 725760

2(10!) = 7257600

2(11!) = .....3600 , since we are only concerned about the last 3 digits

2(12!) = ..... 3200

2(13!) = ... 1600

2(14!) = ...2400

2(15!) = ...36000

after that no result will contribute to the last 3 digits.

so add them up , to the end of the first 3 digits.

Unless I made a silly arithmetic error I got 626

N=2^(1!)!+2^(2!)!+...+2^(1000!)!?
