Photo Backups

I was reading this article on photo backups and was curious how others back up their digital photos?

I have a home server that I back up all my files to, every week or so. Beyond that, I have a portable hard drive that I copy all my documents to, and store in my office for an off-site backup. I don't back up to that as much as I should, but it's better than nothing.

Basically, you really should have A) some kind of backup, and B) some kind of OFF SITE backup in case of fire, flood, or other disaster.

What do you do?

For day-to-day shooting, I have an auto backup (Time Machine on my Mac) which backs up every hour (I think, it's just on and does it's thing). Once a month, I back up all photos to an external drive, which is stored at my work.

I also do professional work, which involves a whole other system of backups and redundancy, such that for any gig, I have at least three copies stored. Probably over kill for casual shooting.
