Latest: 3-Digit Sequence in a Grid Rating: 5.00
In this 5x5 grid I have inserted a sequence of 24 3-digit numbers according to some algorithm. The next number goes into the center square; what is this 3-digit number? And what can you say about the algorith I used?

141 406 974 169 653

820 197 592 383 944

816 643 ??? 589 399

884 105 238 592 279

462 307 502 375 793

Hint: I found this puzzle idea one night last March while going through an old chest of drawers. I first tried to make the problem as a 4x4 grid, but I found I could not do it. I could have made larger grids (the sequence does not stop after the 25th number), but settled on 25 as a nice, round number.
