An AppleScript to do the work...
Authored by: frijole on Aug 16, '05 08:29:28AM
I have created a little AppleScript application that opens up a few dialog boxes, crafts the data into a URL of the form the Google Toolbar uses for submitting SMS messages, then opens the address in a new (via JavaScript) Safari window, where it confirms that it has been sent, and then is kind enough to close it after a few seconds.

In the event the service is unavailable, the submission will bounce and Google will display an error page. This works slicker than snot on a wet rock. Too bad the eternally-craptastic SunCom isn't on the list. So I can't build it into other scripts for notifications via cell. But it's an idea.
