I don't think you can check them without removing them. One of mine was difficult to remove, and needed some force! In hindsight probably quite lucky I didn't snap the head off the bolt. Be careful!

Maybe worth trying to keep the bolt soaked in some WD40 type stuff for a day or so.

DNS is a complicated pain in the butt when it goes wrong, as can be seen by some users getting in without any problems at all!

Clicking on a shortcut in your browser shouldn't make any difference in this case. The issue isn't on your machine, but the Interwebz itself.

You are just plain lucky :D
