Well that's two quite separate questions. I'm pretty sure the answer to
the first one is likely to be 'from about 1978' since my assumption is
that st-80 image 1 was cloned from a st-78 image. Whether that was in
turn cloned from a 76 or even eventually a 72 I couldn't say - but I
bet Dan or Ted could.
The last time an image was made from scratch could be more recent than
you'd expect. Ale. is/was doing work with a system that can do that.
He's mentioned it a few times on the list.
