Another handy search is under he "Quick Links" tab in the top solid blue horizontal line.
Open that link and near the bottom you will see a selection called "Subscribed links".
Clicking on that will show you threads that you have either started or commented in. Threads with new posts (that you have not yet seen) are in bold.
One last quick thing; under the "Thread Tools" selection in another blue bar, you can mark a thread as subscribed, and so watch it's progress without actually posting to it.
