PS - The film has been handled in total darkness only. (I tried to open a cassette in red (ortho) light, but fifty years of darkroom conditioning won, I could not overcome the conditioning)
Also total darkness makes it easier for me to handle. When using ortho sheet film if I look at what I am doing my fingers get muddled up, a bit like the story of the centipede who, when asked how it kept its legs in sync' stopped, thought, and could not move his legs again. Sad story that one, but the parallel is there
