1. Look into svk. As I understand it, it would let you have a primary
repository at work, for example, and then take a clone of it with you
when you go home, and sync it back up when you get back to work the
next day.

2. Look into getting your VPN fixed so that you can access your
single work repository from anywhere. If that's not possible, look
into setting up a repository somewhere else where you can get to it
from both work and home.
