2) Sublime allows you to use SFTP or a Remote-Folder to access your files
on the Halligan servers. To enable Sublime to connect to Halligan, you
will need to install a package. I recommend the "SFTP for Sublime Text"
package, which you can install as the the directions here:

Do not download a 'portable' version of Sublime, if one is available
for your operating system. These UMASM packges do no support 'portable'
distributions of Sublime.
3) Quit Sublime

install the UMASM package. Since this package is not officially
supported, you'll have to install it manually.

Move the UMASM package directory inside Sublime's "Packages" folder.
The location of this folder varies based on your operating system:
3) Quit Sublime
(a) Windows: $APPDATA/Sublime Text 3/Packages
(b) OSX: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 3/Packages
(c) Linux: ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages

5) If you forgot to quit Sublime before installing the UMASM package,
restart Sublime now.

Now, any ".ums" files that you open in Sublime should have UMASM-specific
syntax highlighting automatically applied. If your UMASM code still looks
bland, you may have to manually change the syntax settings by going to:
(View) -> (Syntax) -> (UMASM)
(View) -> (Syntax) -> (UMASM)
or
(View) -> (Syntax) -> (UMASM Improved)
