The original deadline to appeal is extended by thirty days. The notice of appeal filed on December 9, 2008 therefore is timely.

McDaniel, 529 U.S. 473, 484 (2000). Petitioner's motion for appointment of counsel to assist him in the preparation of an application for certificate of appealability is DENIED. (Docket # 41.)
