Using a local database via web browser

I am converting a race timing service from a windows-based software to a web-based system.   The goal is to run the service off of the database on the web server at a remote location.  However if I am at a location where I can't access the remote server I would like to run it off of the local db on the machine I am using via a web browser and then upload to the server later.  What are my options?

Thanks~

So I am hearing that the way to do it is to run it against a local db and then periodically upload it to the server.  I currently use connection strings for my remote db.  I assume I would do something very similar to connect to a db on my local machine.  Can I do it via my chrome browser if it is connecting to a db on the local machine?

I have full sql express on my server and my local machine.  The web code is classic asp hosted on iis 7.0 on a remote server.  Does that mean I am good to go?  I will try to begin setting  this up in the next couple of days and I don't want to bother folks once I accept a solution.

Ok so I guess what I am saying is how do I create a connection string to a local db.  I already know how to run it against the db on the server....
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
