%N Relative of Hofstadter Q-sequence: a(1) = 41, a(2) = 2; thereafter a(n) = a(n-a(n-1)) + a(n-a(n-2)).
%C In calculating terms of this sequence, use the convention that a(n)=0 for n<=0.
%C Most terms in this sequence alternate between 2 and a large constant. Such runs of terms are eventually separated by either 224 or 562 other terms, and each run is approximately twice as long as the previous.
