10.5: Monitor Time Machine activity via GeekTool
Authored by: freddiepingpong on Jan 02, '08 04:54:00PM
Using syslog as suggested above, the query then is:

syslog -F ‘$Message' -k Sender /System/Library/CoreServices/backupd -k Time ge -5m

I got that from http://www.stopbeingcarbon.com/2008/01/time-machine-notification-with-growl/ from a posting on using an Applescript to get a Time Machine Growl notification, which is what I was trying to accomplish.
