The Archer moves one space in any direction, like a non-royal King. Kings move three squares toward the Rook when castling. Other rules are the same as in Chess.

The Earlier comments link appears only at the bottom, because the value needed for it is determined by the id of the last comment displayed on the page, and it doesn't know what this is until it has displayed a page full of comments. To get this information before it displays the comments, it would have to load them all into an array first. This would probably increase memory usage more than CPU usage, but I think that's okay, since my server's memory usage hovers around 3GB, but up to 9GB of RAM are available.
