No secret words, no silly ciphers, nothing.

Plaintext

1. goodjobracecar drawacab goleft nowfindmyname 2. heyyouwon. -stevev

Cipher Method

The alphabet is written in a 5x5 square. Each letter of the plaintext is replaced with the letter directly to its right in the alphabet square, wrapping around when the letter is found at the right edge of the square. To decipher, take the letter directly to the left.

1. GOODJOBRACECAR. DRAWACAB, GOLEFT, NOWFINDMYNAME 2. HEYYOUWON. -STEVEV

This is a simple substitution, but the word choice is unusual enough that Quipquip struggles to solve it automatically. The false word spaces were a nice touch, too. My break-in was... basically a lucky guess, after noticing that the vowels are already in the right place, so the cipher must be replacing vowels with other vowels.
