If you are simply trying to sync just data between
computers, there are any number of third party sync
programs that can do that over your home network.
Most will allow you tos set up any number of folders
on one computer that you want to sync to another.
Another option, depending on the amount of data,
is to connect an additional hard drive or USB memory
stick to the time capsule. You can then use one of the
sync programs have each computer sync to it. Having
an additional backup of just data, besides what Time Machine
provides, is a good idea anyway.
If you are also talking about syncing mail, bookmarks,
contacts, etc. Apple's iCloud can do some of this,
however syncing email is still problematic unless all
your email sources are IMAP based..
Also, if you are comfortable with working with command line
utilities, you may want to check out the system supplied
rsync. This may do what yo want. Using command shell
scripting, you can create any sort of operations you wish.

Thanks. What programs are you specifically talking about? The syncing of data is the big thing, of course, I'd be psysched if I could figure out how to get everything synced and then I selectively choose what goes on the mini which has significantly less space.
I wish I was more comfortable with the command scrips becuase from the research that i've done rsych seems like a good solution.
