This could be turned into a very useful shell script.  Actually, this could be 
two very useful shell scripts; one to create the status message, and one to do 
the notification.

Another approach could be to modify syslog to update a new file in /var/log/ 
and then use inotify to monitor that file.  inotify could then use the 
notification script from above...
