Appeal the denial of the continuance with the BIA. Emphasize the only-7-month difference between your priority date and the June 1, 2002 priority date. Hardest issue for you to overcome is that the Judge had already continued your case for a long time so his denial of another continuance, at least on his side, constituted "good cause". Just file the appeal anyway, you may remand during the pendency if visa numbers become available.
