With just a web browser you can open an account at bitcoinmarket, mybitcoin, or mtgox and send/receive bitcoins.

The only thing you're not able to do is try to generate bitcoins, but you said you don't have a computer at home and it sounds like your employer wouldn't be very... uhh, supportive... of you using their electricity to try to generate bitcoins.

If they would be supportive (long ago I wrote software at a hardware company where they actually LOOKED FOR CPU-intensive applications to run during system burn-in, so they'd ship fewer dead-shortly-after-arrival units) then they'd probably be happy to open up outbound connections to port 8333.

I think it will be easier to bypass the firewall. http-tunnel work almost anywhere

It would be helpful to me if someone willing could set up an email(website) to bitcoin gatway to post transactions, and perhaps a website to download a relatively recent blockchain regularly.  I have not been able to find any network that I can use that does not block bitcoin *very* effectively.  I'm sure that I'm not alone in this modern world, either.  I'm only willing to go so far with regard to getting on the network at my workplace, which has an allergic reaction to anything peer-to-peer; and I don't have a computer at home.  Even the local library computers have a pretty strong firewall, and prevent bitcoin from making any connections.
