sometimes when i'm up late i see people from australia and new zealand on sometimes and one of the terms i saw was 'soz'. i didn't know what i meant so i asked. apparently its the same as saying 'sorry'. might be something to add to your list.

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

One more:
OMW - On my way

i.e:

Player1: Need help!!
Player2: OMW

You could also explain, High and low like High 6, low 12 etc

In the GS,NS etc category, i sometimes see GJ "good job", comment often directed to a teammate.

To the RW term which is RogerWilco, you could also add TS which is TeamSpeak or sometimes TeamSound which is a very good prog but less popular than TeamSpeak.

Edit: E for Energy
