(See description of the job below.)

Would you know of anyone who woul=
d be willing and available to consult with me in case that I end up stuck wi=
th the code? How much would they charge me for their services? 

I would like to get back to my =
manager as soon as possible. If you know of someone, feel free to pass my in=
formation along.

as possible if this is something you could do and if so, approximately how =
many hours it would take you to complete.
