Switch to high idle immediately after cold start up?

Hey folks,

Sorry if this is a dumb question, I couldn't find an exact answer by searching.

After a cold start, will it hurt to immediately switch to my high idle program?

Sig showed up on the second post. Dont know why it didnt on the first! Lol

I would think after about 30 sec of idling, it would be ok to high idle it. I like to get the engine oil moving a little before going above idle. Ford does too since their programming of a high idle comes on between 1 and 2 minutes after startup.
