Git's degree of flexibility in what is considered "the server" is valuable
here. I advise that you simply try a configuration, and see how it works.
It's easy to change where origin points later.
With that said, like you, I have a small ad-hoc setup of automated rsync
backups between my various computers and servers, and I have found some
* I have rsync saving backups into dedicated backup folders on the remote
machines. This eliminates ambiguity of what to back up (server A won't blow
away server B's Documents folder, for example).
* Using a publicly accessible server has been useful. I set up port forwarding
to the machine, and set up a domain name pointing to the server. In general,
when I have Internet access, I can access the server that contains my
repositories. I always use the same domain name, even if I'm in the same room
as the server.
Hope that helps,
