At some point you might consider renting a little server space -- you
have to pay, but it's awfully useful for many things.

Another option would be getting a mini home server that sits in a closet
and is always on. That solves the BitTorrent Sync problem, and you'll
suddenly find it's good for a bunch of other stuff as well: backups,
music, printing, other torrents, LAN filesharing...

Both options are annoying in their own way, but once you've got
something up and running, you'll be pleased!
