QOTD: Anyone Know a Good WordPress Mechanic?

I’ve struck out twice now. Our long-time tech consultant no longer responds to my pleas for help, and a referral by Jim Klein turned out to be too busy. The site is limping along slowly with repeated “503 Service Unavailable” messages, which may be annoying for you, but absolutely brutal for those trying to create new posts in the back end.

There are services that advertise on-line; for some $125/hour. That’s a bit out of our league. So does anyone have a lead on someone who is technically proficient with WordPress?

I’m not talking about the huge numbers of folks out there that can easily put together a WP site. We need someone technically adept to diagnose and remedy some deeper issues that are the result of deferred maintenance, no doubt. Let me know.
