Short hand for "something". It was pretty late for me at that time. :)

Yes, but you first release reset button, then update button. Or plug into USB while holding down the update button. This will not do any harm, you just use the accompanying computer program to flash new firmware and bitstream to OLS. Or you can just reset it and there will be no change.

Well, you don't have to access it all the time. In the case I designed, the button openings are just the size of the buttons and the button surface is about 3 mm below the case surface. I use a pen tip to put it into update mode. For me there is no need for easy access, I just wanted to be able to put it into update mode without disassembling the case.
