0.1 second (or so) is definitely not "rapid". Math? It's one comparison. An alternative is to set the timer period to the initial delay and then change its rate when the callback is first called.
Anyway, it's your code, do as you like - I just dislike cascading timers like that, it seems inelegant. Maybe it's my hardware background - an equivalent approach in hardware would always look like a kludge (and be costly - every chip saved is well, a chip saved).
