Usual places like dice/monster mostly pitch people looking for a full-time gigs. We are looking for an expert that could spare an hour/two on an ad-hoc basis. Must have excellent communication skills in addition to the above.

It is considered bad taste ( against the rules !) to advertise ones services directly.
( Mind you, The last few days several replies rather bluntly advertised services )
Please consider providing some way for interested folks to reach you, notably via Email, instead of tempting them to reply here.
note, You may not want to provide a verbatim Email address, but just stick a simple riddle or some clue in your profile or in a future reply.
Hope this helps,

You probably should state the general industry and your location (at least general location) if you want to get people who (a) have some understanding of your business and (b) may prefer to work on site or at least be prepared to work remotely but with an understanding of the time difference (e.g. I might want to do the work but telephone conversations at 1am might be difficult).

The most important things are your location and contact information.

There's also the obvious suggestion around porting the COBOL code and the business logic and the data out of this particular corner; about retiring the VAX hardware and potentially the FMS interfaces.

My firm provides such assistance, as do several other frequent contributors to this forum.
"As needed" assistance is a significant component of our consulting practice (our actual quantum is 1/4 hour for work done from our offices).

I am not looking for work for myself, but have a number of contacts that are available for consulting. I/they would rather not have this info posted.
Sorry for any confusion.

Being a consultant I too would be happy to discuss your requirements.
