Need help on personal site - footer to push up fixed element

I'm in the process of designing my personal site and I ideally want the left fixed column to remain in place unless the footer hits it, then I want it to scroll up as normal.

Demo - Here

Any help on this would be great as I'm been playing around with some javascript, but I just can't seem to get it to function. :(

Many thanks

I think you should create a function that listens to the scroll event and when you footer is in the view port that function should be triggered.

You can do it easy with jQuery. Link: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2627219/jquery-how-can-i-check-if-a-block-in-my-document-is-inside-the-viewport-or-outs

Hope that helps, Mike.

Thanks buddy, I'm still having a few problems but I think that's more down to the layout which might need to be changed slightly.

All done, many many thanks again Michael Alaev :)
