Here's my problem: I know I've posted something on Stack Overflow about a particular topic. I know how to search all my answers with a given keyword, and that feature works well. But, if I don't find anything, I assume that it must have been a comment that I posted on the subject, and I'd like to be able to find it, and the question it belongs to.
I have read:
Basically, all the responses to those are about 3 years old, so it seems reasonable (to me) to ask this again ...
I've also tried just searching on Google with the keyword(s), my SO username (which I guess unfortunately is (a) not that unusual, and (b) a substring of other words, like unfortunately!), and
site:stackoverflow.com, without much success.
Is there a Stack Exchange API or query that I could run to search my comments, using a keyword or keywords?
I did see one response by Jeff Atwood in one of the questions linked to above indicating that the (2009) inability to do this was annoying him, too, so hopefully I'm not the only one who's tried to do this.
