you let it run. all the time, in the background, only at night/when you're not there, or on special holidays (PI DAY!) whenever. when it finishes
a work unit, or WU, one of two things will happen. it will tell you, and ask to connect in order to send the result and retrieve a new WU, OR you
have it set to connect automatically, in which case it will do so, and you will get +1 WU.
if it is you who analyzes a work unit that finds aliens, etc., they have promised to tell you.
