If you can connect to home with ssh, you can run a socks server at
home, map the socks server to localhost via ssh port forwarding, and
use your IM services through that.
Alternatively, you can run centericq or similar, which lets you
combine all of your message services into a single console client. If
you run it in a 'screen' session on your remote machine, you can keep
it running and telnet/ssh out to it.
