That executes the sin function every quarter of a second.
Code:
last_update = last_update -0.25
is more precise and does not skip seconds (even if this would just be some miliseconds) than reseting the whole value to 0 - (ie last_update could be 0.25182965 - so you would missing 0.00182965 - if you have this ~1000 times there's something missing
