I've used delta 3200 a lot for natural light portrait work.
It DOES have a disconcerting amount of base fog. Try to print your negatives before you give up on them.
As others have said, shoot at 1600 and develop at times recommended for 3200. DDX works great for this film. I scored many bottles of the stock at a low low price when the local college stopped offering darkroom courses. DO NOT use Rodinal unless you want golf ball sized grain. I've never tried HC110 with this film, but I'd be hesitant.
You've got the film, so you might as well play with it. Don't shoot a wedding, your favorite rock star, or a precious newborn with it until you are happy with results from at least a couple of rolls just shot around the house.
I see the OP is a member, and so unable to access the galleries (being a suscriber is definately worth it!).
Here is another Delta 3200 image, taken this spring of my granddaughter, playing with my new 250mm lens.
Good news, your film is probably fine. Take snip an inch or so off the end of a new roll and put it directly into your fixer until it is clear. Rinse and dry it and you will see that it is not as clear as you will find for slower films, particularly Delta 100 or T-Max 100.
There are lots of good books out there, but my suggestion is to stay simple for now and sign up for that class as soon as you can.

These are both Delta3200 in DD-X
The Colorado river / Grand Canyon image had a red filter and a tripod, the "more cowbell" shot was handheld.
