After another meal of bacon and eggshells I've come here for advice, a desperate man..
Techniques, tips, advice, greatly appreciated..
Haha, I always get just one or two tiny bits of shell in my egg. Manage to get the yolk ok usually, but just one or two tiny bits of shell.
****, just tipped it all down myself.. trying to balance the plate next to the keyboard.. Sauce everywhere
Use the larger "cup" shaped bits of eggshell to fish out the little chips. Crack it by smacking it on the bench then pulling it rather than hitting it on the bowl. (crappy description, but it's a hard thing to write out rather than simply show).

Just crack it a bit, then split the crack wider with your thumbs, and let the yolk slide out between your thumbs. A bit messy on your thumbs, but generally leaves things shell free.
Edit: thumbs thumbs thumbs

Nah, you want it crazed but still sorta held together by the membreme underneath. Then you pull at te two ends to take it apart. At worst you end up with one decent sized bit of eggshell falling in, which is easily removed. Give a sharp, but not too hard rap.
By the way, rap it on the side, not either 'end'. Obvious but...
Agree with Geg and Clapo. Didn't realise it was such a big deal, because I'm a terrible cook and I can do it relatively easily. Firm bang on the side of the frypan or whatever followed by pulling the rest apart with thumbs usually does the trick, even if a tad messy. If there's eggshells in my food I can't tell, and that's good enough for me.
Also, great thread, will give it five stars.
