zoom: 75 Initial zoom level
min_zoom: 0
max_zoom: 100
zoom_factor: 2 - Speed of zoom by the mouse wheel
rotate_by: -1.75 - In degrees, the amount that the sphere rotates. Negative values reverse the direction.
fps: 10 - Defines the (target) number of times the animation will be updated per second
centrex: 250 - Horizontal rotation centre in the container <div>
centrey: 250 Vertical rotation centre in the container <div>
min_font_size: 12
max_font_size: 32
font_units: 'px'
random_points: 50 - Adds some random points on to the sphere to enhance the effect

   <li><a href="#" rel="20">link 2</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" rel="20">link 3</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" rel="20">link 4</a></li>
