Do you know if it is possible to search the gists that you have starred?

Searching for this myself. I don't know what use it is to "Star" something if we can't go back and find the thing we starred. I thought that was the whole point...

Update: Found it:

https://gist.github.com/YOUR_USER_NAME/starred

Ex: https://gist.github.com/coolaj86/starred

Why don't they make it easier to search your own gists?
