Default 4 4s puzzle

http://local.wasp.uwa.edu.au/~pbourke/fun/4444/#contrib

the people on this site have gone to a lot of work to solve it

The main issue that I see with that site is, they don't require the use of all 4 of the 4's. This ups the challenge.

I started this same puzzle a year ago at:
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=7051

Also in 2005 by someone else at
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=4756

And a related 4-9's puzzle at:
http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=7060

There are several links in these posts to other web sites that solve problems with 4 of just about anything and just about any set of rules you like.
