Yup, I finally had a chat with someone there, but he wasn't the network 
guy, though. But what he said was that the server had been moved out of 
their network long ago, and they hadn't really an idea where the box 
was broadcasting from.... Not that I understand it, but I was told to 
call tomorrow morning an talk with the network guy, he had noticed some 
abnormal activity, but not seen as much as I had. But we should be able 
to track it down together.  

But I think we've found out what it was, yes! Thanks a lot folks!
