I'm surprised at some responses here...as far as I know, the only thing 'bad' about an overcooked hard boiled egg is the color and texture of the yolk, and the texture isn't really that 'off'...it just turns a green hue. Taste-wise or health-wise, it wouldn't hurt you a bit.

In my experience over-cooked eggs are rubbery in texture which is really really unappealling to a lot of people. A 1/2 hour on low boil, to ME, is too long. I never let my eggs boil though - as soon as the water starts to boil I put the lid on, take them off the heat, let them sit for 20 minutes, and end up with perfect boiled eggs - not rubbery with a nice bright yellow yolk.
That's what I do too, except I only let them sit for 10 minutes and they're fine.
I've found in the past week, discussing HB eggs that maybe it depends on where we live (altitude, etc.) as to how long to boil them though. I do 10 minutes off the heat, but I know others who've had anywhere from that to 30 minutes.
