comment An adjustable length knot for 2 lines and a carabiner for easy suspension
That carabiner looks like it would hold up exactly once, I'm sure the OP will figure that out and replace it with a proper-sized carabiner :)

comment Knot to turn cord into loop (load bearing)
I'm not a big fan of that alternative name because of the connotations it brings :). Agreed, dressing it well (pulling on each pair of strands) is key.

comment Travelling and taking climbing chalk through customs
Agreed; I have flown with chalk in both carry-on and checked luggage. Don't carry on a nut tool, however!

comment How should a climbing rope be stored?
Welcome to outdoors.sx! Please clarify that you mean 50C, not 50F :). Also, I believe it is more correct to say that "the strength of frozen wet nylon is lower" than "frozen, wet nylon tends to break".

Disagree with #3; I was my rope all the time, often in the washing machine.
