I find that the more complicated crap gets, the more complicated the problems get
We build commercial ink-jet printers, where a printing system is 40-80 feet long, and typically costs $1.5-2.5M. We ain't your grandma's DeskJet.

You would not believe how complicated things get. We had a problem several years ago where image registration would drift by a pixel or more over time. It seemed to vary with the amount of ink used in the job, but it wasn't very determinate. After lengthy investigation, we discovered that the press roller used to measure position using a tachometer changed diameter from being heated by the paper going over it. We have to dry the ink (more ink, more power on the dryers), and one of these tach rollers was positioned badly. We moved the roller and switched to one made from a different kind of steel to solve the problem.
