OK, it's not free but ...

I just want a static display, updated every 20 seconds or so.
You are not the first one to ask. :)
Tigger is really meant as a kind of system service to display various bits of information. But I will think about a solution that reduces movement to a minimum.
The CPU usage is also a concern---I generally need 100% of both my CPUs.
I don't think I can reduce it much while keeping the scrolling smooth. Try to experiment with the settings. In case a future version would reduce scrolling, that would reduce cpu time too, of course.

What I can do now is add a renice option. That way Tigger should not take cpu time when other processes need it.
