Of course off-site backups are essential, whether or not you have
version control. But I'd rather have them *with* than without :-)

True. I'm using github.com for a couple of projects. However, I've
set up CVS, SVN, and git servers in the past, and git is a *whole*
lot simpler if you want your own remote repo.

Alternatively, just rsync your project directories to one of your web
servers; instant backup.
