cooking advice: hard-boiled eggs

Yes, really.

First: you do NOT have to pre-heat the microwave!

Okay, here's the real advice:
I use 'cold water' method for boiling eggs: put eggs in cold water, bring to boil. Turn heat off. Let 'em sit in heated - but cooling - water for 20 mins.

Here's the real advice: cool eggs in fridge.
Do NOT put eggs in water to cool!!!
(... the aqueous environment makes 'em difficult to peel - the water somehow permeates the shell.)
Wait a while.
When eggs are cooled, peel shell from thick end
(no - I don't know why this works better, but it does).

Yes - only a guy needs directions on 'how to boil an egg'.
