The problem is at:

http://sdrv.ms/13KJBit

Can anyone figure it out?

I've made a start, but not producing anything fruitful so far, answer is an integer from 0 to 999.

For fixed integers it turns out that regardless of the
initial values the sequence is eventually periodic.
Find the sum of all possible periods.
