Did the boosters land upright or was that something else they were showing?

Very much so. What a beautiful sight.

Still awaiting word on the core booster, was supposed to land on the drone ship a few minutes ago but the connection was lost.

Probably blew up over the Atlantic and cutting the feed was their way of telling us it was a success don't ask more questions :P

Did it really take 2 minutes and 30 seconds to reach space?

At 38:30 in the livestream you can hear someone on the background radio saying "we lost the center core" .

They didn't lost it. It's orbiting the sun I. About a billion year orbit before it degrades and crashes into the sun.

Space starts at aboiy 100 miles up or so. It was going over 10,000 kmh by the end.

We lost two Space Shuttles with full crews after years of testing and experience.  The fact that they had technical issues on their maiden launch isn't entirely unexpected nor really a big deal.
