The back story to this article is pretty simple. I have a Raspberry Pi, one of those super small ARM computers that cost about $35. I use the Raspberry Pi to run Nagios and monitor my servers (a tutorial on that will be coming later). I wanted to be able to have my Raspberry Pi send me an SMS message should specific alert happen on my servers, but I really did not want to pay a SMS gateway for this luxury (email works find I would just prefer SMS). So I started looking for a solution.
