The sum of the reciprocal of the square root of all the positive integers up to n is denoted by F(n), that is:
F(n) = 1+1/√2 + 1/√3 +...+ 1/√n
Determine the maximum value of n such that the integer part of the base ten expansion of F(n) DOES NOT exceed 2012.
*** For an extra challenge, solve this puzzle without using a computer program.

1014512 is indeed the exact result based on use of 2013 instead of 2012, but that doesn't equal int(1005.5^2), which is 1011030.
