Post seperation w/ gluelam beam

I am trying to find a graph that helps me calculate the max distance between posts when using a glulam beam (5 x 12). I have found numerous graphs that help you calculate this distance when using regular beams (i.e. 2 - 2x12's, 2 - 2x10's etc. etc). Here is a visio drawing of what I am building...(it's rite on my homepage)

Basically, it's a covered patio/deck, and I got a good deal on this gluelam beam which is why I am using it.

I guess the first question is - Is the glue waterproof. If not it will delam in short order. Is it made for outdoors??

If you can find out who the mfgr. or the retailer of the glulam is, ask them.
