Dismissal of an appeal for untimely filing of a notice of appeal does not release the prisoner from the obligation to pay the appellate filing fee in full. There is no authority for waiver or reduction of the fee. At 596: "The legislative history suggests that Congress did not intend to favor prisoners who litigate multiple cases." See: Miller v.
