E.D.Va.

AFFIRMED.

Before LUTTIG, MICHAEL, and MOTZ, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:

1

Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988) motion. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Thomas, Nos. CR-94-514-A; CA-96-46-AM (E.D.Va. Jan. 29, 1996). We deny Appellant's motion to "advance" his appeal as moot. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.

2

AFFIRMED.
