People here will hate me for this, but I think you should switch to a DVCS (Distributed Version Control System), like Mercurial or git.
While I don't know git, in Mercurial you have the possibility to save and export you changes as so-called bundle at one site and import them at the other site. For more information: http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/hg.1.html#bundle
