Do you have dmidecode 42?

Dear Lazyweb, I need your help. Does anyone have a newish server system (it’s not going to work on Laptops) that has any output from sudo dmidecode | grep "DMI type 42"? If you do, can you tar up the contents of /sys/firmware/dmi/tables and send it to me via email. If I can get this code working then I’ll have another more exciting blog post coming up. Thanks!
