Alternative approach, what I do:-

    Run a text mode (but very capable and mouse aware) newsreader on
    my home system, read news locally using that.

    Use ssh (is that available at worK?) to connect from work to home
    and run the same newsreader in the same environment. If you can't
    even ssh from work then you can always use an 'ssh from the web'
    app from your wenb browser.

The newsreader I use is tin by the way.
