why can't I peel an egg?

I've lost my ability to peel a hardboiled egg. Are the eggs different, or is my technique? I used to be able to take the shell and the icky membrane off in one fell swoop, but now things have changed, and I seem to mangle every egg I touch. If I eat any more bits of eggshell, I may calcify. Any hints from people who really like their egg salad?
