how to find nodes I upvoted?

(Probably a repeat, but my superficial search didn't find this:)

Is there a way to generate a list of all the nodes/titles that I ever upvoted (or did so within a specified timeframe)? Maybe even the repcount such nodes got? Perhaps it would be way too much data and/or too disorganized, but I think it would help me when I want to go back and review nodes that impressed me. And/or would encourage me to upvote nodes I think I might want to see again.

On the one hand, I've just decided to use my scratchpad to flag such nodes, but being lazy....

    Spend your votes freely, and just keep track of really impressive things you wish you could vote up more than once. After you've been voting for a year, you wouldn't want to see a list of everything you've ever voted. If you try to book-keep to that level, you'll never actually read the nodes or write any code. You already see the reputation of nodes you've written and nodes you've voted (up or down), but only as you read the nodes.

    You can add the "Add to scratchpad" link to your "personal nodelet", so you can keep the nodes that impressed you directly into your scratchpad with just one click. That's what I do... and probably many others too :)

    This could be an interesting addition to the Super Search. The nodes I remember most are the ones that made an impression, and those that made an impression are the ones I voted for. Sometimes I think "I knew I read a post about $thing" but can't find it because I can't find the right keywords. Sometimes I remember the author and it becomes slightly easier, but still very hard. This search option would make it a lot easier.

    See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!

      I'm not very good at using Super Search, etc., so I tend to Google ThePen.

        Gee--now I've incorporated two very useful things from this thread: The "Personal Nodelet" box now appears below the "XP Nodelet" box (hurrah!) so that I can in turn Add nodes like this one (with the pre-filled Advanced Search criteria for google) to my Scratchpad. (Or somesuch.) Thanks all. :-)
