Just hope a tornado/hurricane/flood/other calamity doesn't hit your
office and wipe out all your computers. That is the reason for offsite
backup. If all your computers are turned to garbage you need a recover
process that doesn't depend on them, but hopefully on an offsite, and
still safe, backup.

I would like to answer this part of your question.

In many development environments and for reasonable projects, let's say
1,000,000 million lines of code or less, you might want to skip the
backups, and just have every developer check out the entire library to
their personal computer. They each back up each other, as long as they
check things back in, in a reasonable amount of time.

This theory fails, if people keep things checked out for a long period
of time, but that failure might still not induce you to take backups,
except at the moment when you have a successful test case, in which case
you would do a cold-start build and copy that into the test backup
location.
