About that PCDOOM.WAD info, here's where that page leads: https://web.archive.org/web/20130407060714/http://rome.ro/lee_killough/articles/doomconf.shtml It's a transcript of an online Doom conference by CGW with Shawn Green and American McGee and they discuss Doom II which wasn't released yet. It took place in September of '94. It mentions the guy who made PCDOOM.WAD (and some of his other WADs) at the beginning and a few other places as well.
Example: "[Note: PCDOOM.ZIP is also available here. Both are modeled on Ziff-Davis HQ bldg at 1 Park Avee, New York. PARKDO.ZIP is the 11th floor, where Computer Shopper and Windows Sources make their home, and PCDOOM.ZIP is the 4th floor, home of PC Magazine and PC Labs. Both are excellent creations of Steve Baldwin, an editor for Computer Shopper. --RL, sysop]"
I guess he was an editor for Computer Shopper which was a magazine.
