%C In calculating terms of this sequence, use the convention that a(n)=0 for n<=-312.

%C Sequences like this are more naturally considered with the first nonzero term in position 1. But this sequence would then begin with 312 terms consisting entirely of alternating 4 and 312.

%C This sequence has exactly 6632 terms, since a(6632)=0 and computing a(6633) would refer to itself.
