Can't seem to get clearfix to work, maybe it isn't even appropriate here. Footer is eating entire page.

You should add clearfix class to the container div. Add container div around those 3 columns. You should also consider adding one more container around content in main header. You do not need clearfix on each column. Let me know how it goes. I have just finished that project

Ah man, you got it.

Thank you!
