Folding@home? No thank you. That project hasnt found anything, and to be honest, I do not think it will.

"Hasn't found anything", huh?

Granted, some of that is research on improving folding and computation, which themselves are useful to Computer Science.  Some of that research, however, has implications on Biology and definitely Chemistry.  Just because you don't understand the impact doesn't meant there isn't any. 

"Curing cancer" is not the only meaningful discovery that can be achieved, and major discoveries sometimes take decades and entire careers to make.  Given that the Folding project has only been running for 8 years, and personal computing has only recently broken the fast multi-core barrier, I'd say they're doing pretty good.
