Same, though still on the younger end here. 1999 was my senior year of high school; I had been active on the internet since around 92 or so; and I don't remember Zombocom. Then again I mostly hung out on UseNet then, and if I heard of Zombocom probably dismissed it with the same disdain that I did Friendster, LiveJournal, MySpace, and so on, as piddling little things that only noobs would use. (It really caught me by surprise when everyone in meatspace started talking about Facebook and Twitter all the time; I hadn't noticed quite how popular the 'Net had gotten with mundanes until that point, since I was still hiding in my favorite little corners of the old 'Net).
I'm presuming here that Zombocom is some kind of poorly implemented proto-social-something, since all I see when I load the page is a giant Flash box.
