Birthday Stars.

Birthday Stars is a generator that will find a star whose distance matches your age in light years from earth. For example, if you are 28 years and 6 months old, it will find a star 28.5 light years away from earth. The light arriving now from “your” star was generated at the time of your birth. Light travels at over a billion kilometers per hour {wiki}, so these stars are very far away. -via the Presurfer

This seems like a clunkier implimentation of the Light Cone RSS Feed, which tells every star whose light has reached you since your birth, not just the most recent. These are the stars in your light cone. According to relativity you can have had no effect on anything outside of this light cone.
