So I should just clone my work-repository on to my USB-drive (FAT32), and
when I come home, I clone from my USB-drive on to my Home-computer?? And
later on, use pulling to update the different repositories?

Isn't is smarter to pull from my work repository on to the USB-drive,
instead of pushing?

What is then the benefit of using "git bundle"?
