If you have access to a sever... try to use git. There is a emacs mode and by 
opening your org-file on either the home or work-pc you could directly ask to 
sync it with your server. By this way syncing becomes a single key-stroke
In addition you have access to all changes over time. If you mess up you can 
restore it and if you miss to sync both systems git is very helpful to merge 
both versions into a single version again.

For the same reason I bought the moleskine. A bit more expensive but I thought 
it has to hold the harsh environments in my pocket for one year and I noticed 
that mid of January shops like to get rid of calendars urgently and greatly 
discount them ;)

I tried this but always messed up with lost cards, messed up cards, etc. Thus 
I was looking for a more "stable" version.

That is definitely right. Maybe someone should try to implement a more 
attractive C-c C-t d in org-mode.  

Thanks for the ideas
