I'll try to make this as clear as possible.
What I want to do is Monitor the status of a process I have on a mySQL database. When the status = fail I want to automatically generate a text message from nowSMS to me notify me of this failure... Is this possible or has anyone done someting similar?

If you dig around in the docs or on the message board you'll find the URL paramters for sending SMS messages. With this you can construct a URL that will trigger an SMS message and then call it using wget in a script.

Something like 'wget message%20text' although you'll have to check to make sure you're using the correct parameters.

And here's a script that you can use to enable a command line interface for sending messages:
