Thank you, thank you,.......,thank you Jks.
You have taken pounds off my head!

I just reran my program; 3 simulations of 1 million each:
389,769
390,135
389,503

I kept looking at my program, at least once daily,
and simply couldn't see any flaws...but felt there
must be something wrong with it, since I was so
far off Jeff's and MATHEMATICIAN's results.

Btw, this exercise would be so much simpler if
it consisted of:
1: the first 23 numbers are different
2: the 24th number matches one of the first 23

Thanks again.
