Can you pasturize your own eggs at home and how?

A poster who had a great tip about buying eggs in Japanese markets mentioned pasturizing them at home.. I found this link with instructions
http://www.ehow.com/how_4679090_paste...

However, another site wrote
http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/Eg...

"the equipment necessary to pasteurize eggs isn't available for home use. It's not possible to pasteurize eggs in the home.

Rather than take a chance of getting sick by trying to pasteurize eggs, try "coddling" them before use. This kills any bacteria on the shell which, if I understand the thing correctly, is where most egg contamination comes from. "

So, have you tried home pasturization? Is it safe? Is your pricess similar to the first link?
