Things appear fixed, yet I still don't know how to see if we're in our
providers' AS macros. Is there an easy way (other than emailing the AS
maintainer) to get the macro from if you don't know the
macro's name?

whois -h -r -a -i as-list YourAS

(note: as far as I know, this will only work for RIPE 2.x and higher
       servers, RA is a derivative of RIPE1.x and will thus not work,
       however, RIPE is mirroring all routing registries, so you
       should be fine)
