Even if there is no sensor attached, the mote still pulls values off the 
pins that would attach to the sensor.  In this case, they are probably 
floating at 0V.  Then surgeview runs these meaningless values through 
its algorithm to calculate what would be the sensor value.  As a result 
you get a meaningless sensor value.
