Wolfram can't get an exact answer, but the series is convergent by the Alternating Series Test.

What I find amusing about the Alpha attempt to sum this series is that it reports negative results for a couple of convergence tests, and ignores the fact that it is obviously convergent (in fact it is obviously absolutly convergent).
(Note I asked for a simplified rearrangenment of this which it failed to notice converged by the alternating series convergence test)
