The short version is some amazing and wonderful people bring in rigs recording rigs or go all ninja stealth with mics and recorders, normally something digital, and tape the show.

They bring it home, sometimes master it, cut it up, save to wav, convert to shn/flac/ape, write up the documentation and either 1) release it themselves or 2) give it to someone else to seed/share/release.

The long version involves monkeys, magic carpets, and elevators. =)

As for 5/17, I've seen nothing on it yet. I'm almost certain someone taped it, but it can take up to two months before something is out there. There's a number of holes in the tour bootlegs right now (Though, I am happily listening to 2005-05-12 - United Center while waiting at Logan to fly to Philly to see the boys Sunday) but I'm certain the American peeps will catch up this summer while the boys are in Europe.

Hope that helped some.
