look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
A device or means for measuring the amount of time spent faffing around (as I am doing when writing this entry) as against doing constructive work.
E.g. an excel spreadsheet in which you enter the times when you start faffing and when you start on real production work.

or a stopwatch that you start / stop accordingly.
My productivity has dropped dramatically in the last few weeks, so I'll have to install a faffometer.
