Why rope caulk? Rope caulk is removable and (sometimes) reusable. (Whether it can be reused depends on how much junk from your windows it's picked up.) My dad used to go around rope caulking all the windows before winter, and then uncaulking them in the spring so they could be opened. I also find it's neater to use than regular caulk, as you don't have to struggle to get a thin, even line of caulk out of a tube.

I have done OK with Ikea's dinnerware, but have had a terrible time with their glassware. Two years after purchasing three sets of drinking glasses, I only have a handful left. It's not that I'm clumsy -- only my Ikea glasses break. As many of my friends have had the opposite experience -- dishes breaking but glasses being fine -- I think there's just a huge variation in quality. Based on my experience combined with what I've heard from my friends, I wouldn't buy dinnerware or glassware from Ikea again. It's cheap in theory, but expensive in practice.
