Sum square difference: Project Euler Problem 6

Problem link: http://projecteuler.net/problem=6

Problem Statement:

The sum of the squares of the first ten natural numbers is,
1^2 + 2^2 + ... + 10^2 = 385

The square of the sum of the first ten natural numbers is,
(1 + 2 + ... + 10)^2 = 55^2 = 3025

Hence the difference between the sum of the squares of the first ten natural numbers and the square of the sum is 3025-385=2640.

Find the difference between the sum of the squares of the first one hundred natural numbers and the square of the sum.
