I currently store my photos on my laptop's hard drive (I only have 40gb's or so). I then back them up with time machine to an external drive, then I copy them to another external hard drive. Finally, I have another copy of my photos on a hard drive at my parents house. Soon I will expand this to include a copy that I will keep in a safety deposit box or something. Just in case!

I started to use your naming convention around a year ago, before that I just searched through lightroom until I found the image I wanted - very tedious. RAW images get backed up to my server, JPG’s are ftp’d from lightroom to a website for temporary viewing, server backs up to a Netgear NAS and the NAS backs up to on-line storage, although I’m considering excluding the RAW files from on-line storage though - I think I’ve pretty much got it covered.
