Chinese web lingo

Ok this is funny.  We are learning about using the internet in Chinese and here is a list of abbreviations/special lingo that chinese people use.

3Q:  "san-Q" = thank you
88:  "baba" = byebye (Chinese people say Byebye all the time)
360: "sanliuling" sounds like "xiangnianni" = I miss you
NB: "niubi" literally "cow-press" = awesome (slang)
大虾:means large prawn = pro
小虾:means small prawn = n00b

"sanliuling" sounds like "xiangnianni" ... I'm just trying to figure out the pronunciation which would make that true... unsuccessful so far...

That's exactly what I was going to say!
