Nice, I didn't know we had been transmitting signals for 200 years already.

That doesn't really mean much.

How do we know how far "pretty far" is?

If you want to know how far "pretty far" is, see comment #349. If you want to know how we know the distance, I'll explain it here.
When the universe first sprang into existence, the big bang, it was incredibly small. Almost immediately it went through a brief process caused inflation, which caused the universe to rapidly expand to a size that is quite possibly larger than our observable universe. This inflation was caused by an energy that was (and is) constant (see cosmological constant/ dark energy ) throughout space.
Before too long the inflationary epoch occurred between 10^-33 and 10^-32 seconds after the big bang, the inflationary epoch ended, possible due to the inflationary field's value tunneling to a lower value. This resulted the the huge potential energy of the inflationary field to 'crystallize' into the basic constituents of matter.
The value of the inflationary field didn't quite hit zero, and it continued to cause the universe to expand, albeit at a much slower rate. This is known as 'dark energy', and slowly caused the expansion of the universe to accelerate, though it was actually decelerating at first, due to the fact that the density of the universe was much larger than it is today. Eventually, the universe expanded to the point where dark energy was able to overcome its density and the expansion started accelerating. Any expansion decrease the density (but the force causing space to expand stays the same).
Today, we find the comoving size of the universe by finding how large it would be without expansion (expanding at the speed of light, 27.6 billion light years in diamter), then factoring in expansion. The value we end up with is the 96 billion light years, and is the distance it is NOW.
