Thanks David

your method looks similar to how I'm managing my init files - a single repo on
my usb key (in your case a web server) which I push to and pull from.

My current problem is more complicated (to me!) than that. I'm having difficulty
explaining it though.

On 'home' I pull changes from 'remote' at //repo.or.cz.

What I would like to do then is either:

1. change 'remote' to be my usb key and push changes to that, or
2. use 'home' as 'remote' from my usb key and pull changes.

Then I'd probably use the same strategy when I got to my 'work' laptop - either
the usb key is 'remote', or 'work' becomes 'remote' from POV of the usb.

More like this:

 repo.or.cz <-> Home <-> USB <-> Work

If it made it easier, I *could* do:

 repo.or.cz <-> USB -> Home
                   \ -> Work

But that may be even more complicated!
