comment How to keep word document, html and pdf documentation aligned
On one hand, yes. On the other hand, I'd say that this is true for most technologies that have built-in support to output multiple formats. At least Markdown or reStructuredText are easier to learn than LaTeX or XML. (Maybe there's even a Word-like editor that can save Markdown or reStructuredText? I don't know if one exists, but who knows?)

comment Best way to share (make accessible) to the world a maybe useful self-written utility script/program?
Or just put links (with descriptions) to your projects into the "About me" field in your user profile. I did this with my projects as well, and my SO profile was visited by over 1000 people as of now - I'd like to think that at least some of them clicked on the links to my projects.

comment How do you keep logins organized between multiple developers?
Okay,maybe I should have made this more clear: there are versions for other operating systems besides Windows, but these seem to be unofficial. The download page as well the Wikipedia page say this, that's why I wrote that KeePass is a Windows app.
