I read in sci.electronics.design that Helmut Sennewald
wrote (in ) about 'Cheap, and badly behaved, FET op-amp needed', on
Fri, 11 Oct 2002:

My Langenscheidt gives 'foolish, silly, odd, funny' for 'naerrisch', as
well as 'mad and 'crazy'. The first four are pretty close to 'naff', the
other two could fit sometimes.

It's naff to use 'naff'; it's a word from the 80s. You can buy my copy
of 'The Complete Naff Guide' for 50 Euro. (;-)
