You can get a copy of a bootstrap (uploaded by Michel Van Kessel - @BlackcoinNL) from mega.nz.
There are a few ways to check the most current block:
From Debug Window, or CLI: Use
getblockchaininfo. Look for “blocks”.
Once you know what block you are up to compare that with "Block Height" on a blockchain explorer.
The debug.log also shows a full list of blocks (labeled as “height”), and the timestamp of those blocks in UTC time.
