Yes, "offline".  Run Leafnode on one machine on your local network and read
news from any other using the newsreader of your choice.

If you want to use an X newsreader run it on the machine serving the news
and display it locally.  If you want to run a non-X newsreader use ssh.
Actually, in either case the machine running the news server, the machine
running the newsreader, and the machine you are sitting in front of could
all be different.
