On the PrimeNet page at http://mersenne.org/primenet/, near the bottom is a link to "Hourly World Test Status, Assignment Report" at http://mersenne.org/primenet/status.txt. (Note: It's currently over 10 MB in size.) This would show whether those three exponents were currently assigned for either TF or LL, and to whom.

If one or more is still assigned to you, just use your save file to continue from where you left off, perhaps forcing a status report to PrimeNet a short time after you resume, in order to get back in assignment synchronization there.

If one or more is now assigned to someone else, then you could still contribute by continuing the L-L from where you left off. PrimeNet will treat your work as a doublecheck, and give you that credit when you report completion. That would save GIMPS the work some other doublechecker would have to do to get up to where you left off. It wouldn't be stealing someone else's work.

If one or more is not on the assignment list, then check the "Hourly World Test Status, Cleared Exponents Report" at http://mersenne.org/primenet/cleared.txt. If it's listed there, then someone else has already completed the L-L test.
