Default Distributed Computing for Pay?

Are there any Distributed computing projects that pay people for the use of their processor?

I'm doing SETI right now, but I was thinking, if there's a way to get any money out of this, I'd be there in a second.

It still amazes me to see some of the scams out there. Not just scams involving the DC community either....

Yeah, there's no money in it because anyone who's willing to pay doesn't like the lack of security with a mass DC project.

Well you can get a tax deduction for donating money to SETI here/ So why can't you just deduct the amount of electric used to do SETI as a donation?
