Lightcone RSS: Which stars light have reached me since my birth

I just subscribed to a new RSS feed telling me to which stars I have become visible in my lifetime. So, just eight seconds after my birth, light would have had enough time to reflect off of me and make it's way back to the Sun (It's a boy). Every day the feed is updated to tell me how far my influence has traveled into the universe.

I believe that would have been 8.31 minutes for the light to reach the sun.
