When I interview, I'm interviewing thought processes and integrity.  I obviously already know the answer to all the questions I'm asking so if someone has the audacity to make something up and lie to me because they don't know instead of saying, "I don't know," then they've likely eliminated themselves.

I don't see much of a point in drawn-out technical exercises.  I'll ask about technologies we're using (or want to use) and ask specifics about skills they claim to have on their resume.  As long as they are frank about what they know and what they don't, the level of experience seems to fit the position, and they seem genuinely interested, then I've got no objections (or tricky questions).
