"My script is on a web site with a dedicated IP address."

You'll find that for outgoing traffic the server will pick the standard IP address, not the one used by the website.

Try authenticating the requests, it helps. Alternatively, use code to use the right IP address.

I have a simple PHP web page that calls this 24 times per hour using
CURL:
http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?count=1&screen_name={user_name_here}

Responses are cached and logged so a) I shouldn't go over the limit
and b) I can track exactly when the calls are made and confirm my PHP
script is only making 24 requests per hour.

For some reason the rate limit status decreases to 0 after about half
an hour.

Any ideas what I can be doing wrong or if the rate limit can be
decreased by something else other than my script. My script is on a
web site with a dedicated IP address.
