Short of setting up some kind of indexing/search system for newsgroups
on a news server, I don't think there is any general way.

For the newsgroups on Gmane there is - I don't know of
anyone doing the same for usenet (except for Google Groups, where your
milage may very quite a bit, last I checked), though.

I archive all my outgoing news articles, which solves the specific case
of finding something written by oneself.
