So, I have a gazillion triggers and aliases, and I made them by clicking the button and typing them in, not by saving them in the script file. I've recently become terrified that my computer will crash and I'll lose them all.

I have a safe place to save backup files. What's the best way to get a backup file or files of all my settings, or at least as many as possible, in a way that I'll be able to load them back up if some catastrophic event occurs and I lose my current copy of mushclient?

Triggers entered into the dialog box are saved to the world file. Copy the .mcl file to your backup location.

Indeed. You can open the MUSHclient world file (the xxx.mcl file) in any text editor. You should be able to see a section starting <triggers> that lists all your triggers, and one starting <aliases> that lists all your aliases.
