You'll find a lot of scripts on http://www.deadcat.net

Your script must call the bb executable with the bbdisplay
and a message as arguments, for example

$BB $BBDISP "status ${MACHINE}.$TEST $COLOR `date` <output of script>"

where TEST ist the name of the column that will appear
on the BBDISPLAY and COLOR ist the color of the event
(red, green, yellow).
