    Eggs should not be boiled for more than a full 5 to 6 minutes from ""start of actual
    boil"", then immersed in running cold water, for skins to peel off better. (if a
    fail, adjust time downwards, next try)

    I never read about this till a year or so ago in the food section
    of the paper, that older eggs are good for peeling. They didn't
    explain exactly what "older" meant, but I'm assuming it's for people
    who keep eggs around all the time, that it would be a good idea for
    them to use the older ones for hard boiling. And it works. I bought
    some eggs at a convenience store across the street a month or so ago
    that were nearly at the expiration point and the shells came off
    really easy. I don't generally keep eggs around, but it's a fact, the
    older eggs are easier to peel. I don't know about the room
    temperature angle, but it sounds reasonable. But if you're a big egg
    eater, I'd say put the ones you want to boil separate from those you
    want to use for other things. it works.

    Susie's formula:

    20 minutes from cold, 10 minutes from hot water.
    Eggs are then drained and cold water added to the pan, for maybe 5 seconds
    only. Then she shakes the pan of eggs vigorously, causing them to crack.
    Then she adds more cold water and leaves them until cool, and the majority
    of shells just fall crumble off easily, almost every single time. Age of the
    egg makes no difference to her.

    I know your pain. I'd just chop and present a salad. Your dilemma is
    exactly why I stopped planning deviled eggs years ago to take anywhere.
