No, you cannot fork a repository and put it back together again
afterwards. Your only way forward now is to overwrite your working
copy for ProjTim on computer A with the working copy from computer B,
and commit from computerA.

You cannot use subversion in this way. You either need to change the
way you work (e.g. just copy the WC and generate patches) or use a
completely different version control system that supports disconnected
operation (e.g. Mercurial?)
